“The sights”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

We had a group of 8 booked in for the private 4 hour tour, and we were lucky enough to have Lee - who was extremely knowledgeable about everything. All of us enjoyed our tour immensely as our guide offered us a bit of everything. I would highly recommend this type of tour - you get to see the main sights, get familiar with your surroundings (especially the metro (get the 1 week unlimited metro card if you are there for more than 5 days, you will use it a lot) and also get the 'inside' knowledge.
Thanks a lot Outside in tours.

“Midtown and Downtown Fun!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

My husband, teenage daughters and myself spent an amazing 6 1/2 hours with Joey, our Outside In private walking tour guide. Joey picked us up at our front door and spent a few minutes asking about what we were interested in and what we hoped our day would be like. Joey was funny, very knowledgable, kind, and full of suggestions about how we could spend the rest of our trip. We spent the very next day taking the subway to Brooklyn, having pizza at Julianna's and ice cream at Brooklyn Ice Cream, and then walking back across the Brooklyn Bridge, just as Joey had suggested. We highly recommend Outside In Private Walking Tours.

“Absolutely Wonderful!”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

We originally had one day to see New York City, and although we generally don't go for tours, we booked one with Outside In. Best decision ever! Nya who dubbed us the Marathon Tour, was awesome with planning the tour and giving helpful advice. Ted, our guide, went above and beyond. We saw EVERYTHING on our wish list, and then some. It was like having a friend from Manhattan show you around. We could stop when we wanted, eat where we liked (and Ted knew some really good places) and go off on a tangent if we saw something interesting. There were four of us - two teenagers, a young adult, and myself - and Ted kept our interest the whole time. We saw places and learned about things we never would have been able to do on our own. Ted was never boring or hurried. He even stayed longer to make sure we saw it all. Then he sat down with us and helped us plan the rest of our trip. We really felt like we got an real "insiders" view of the city. Ted I cannot say enough good things about this tour. I would give it ten stars if I could!

“Best way to uncover New York”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

For a first timer New York can be intimidating, 'where do you start?'. We booked a 6hr tour for the first day of our week-long stay in New York for our family of 4. It was the best decision we made. Joey gave us a fantastic tour from Central Park to Battery Point, providing us a history of the place, insider tips for dining out, demonstrating how to get the most out of the subway, and providing us a platform to explore the parts of New York that interested us the most.
