“Find Out About New York City From A Real New Yorker, Cliff !”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

My husband and I finally made it to the great city of New York and learned so much about it in five hours thanks to Cliff, he is the best. We were so glad our friends arranged this so we got to know all about this wonderful city first hand from someone who has lived there and really does know the City. Cliff arrived right on time and managed to take all six of us all around New York City to all the sight we asked to see there an then some. We went to Central Park, Harlem, Soho
Wall Street, the Statue of Liberty, and the Twin Towers Memorial all in five hours. Cliff new so many facts and history about every site that he was like a talking history book of New York City.
He also was very polite and had a great sense of humor, the tour flew by so fast. Without this tour you really would not know where to really go the next time you are lucky enough to come to New Yew City. Thank you Cliff and his wonderful driver Trevor. We would recommend this great tour experience to anyone going to New York City! Steven and Sara Ann Buchanan, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

“Tour with a real Professional.”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

We have been to NYC many times. I only wish that could have done this tour on our first time there with Cliff. He is very knowledgeable and includes a personal touch with every stop. Cliff is passionate about his job and it shows! You just don't drive by a site. He stops and in some cases ( if you want) you can get out of the car to take pictures and get close.

We wanted to see the 911 Memorial and we did! Cliff walked us around the memorial pointing out little things that we would have never known if we were on our own. Paying respects to the Heros who died there was very important to us. Passing by the "Surviver Tree" and learning about this was very interesting as well.

We spent over 5 hours with Cliff and learned so much. Each and every stop was very informative. There always was time for pictures, questions, and even lunch if you want. What I liked most about the tour was that it's YOUR tour. You decide where you want to go and Cliff does all the rest.

There is so much to see in New York so I suggest you put some thought into what is important to you then let Cliff know. You won't be disappointed!! And if you are lucky, you will have Trevor as your driver. He can move that Mercedes van around New York City like a scooter!!

Many thanks for your very flattering referral. It's important
that others provide referrals on tripadvisor not only because
it enables the tripadvisor community to make excellent
travel decisions but it continues to strengthen tripadvisor
as an even more useful resource.
Also, thank you for acknowledging one of our best drivers,
Trevor.
Best regards,
Cliff

“Seven Texas Ladies in NYC!”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

We have been on NYC tours before, but none can compare to the 5-hour tour Cliff, and driver, Trevor, gave us last week. Cliff came through with all the sites we requested and gave us a wealth of information. We asked for a comfortable vehicle, since we had several seniors with us, and the Mercedes van was perfect. We are recommending this tour company to all our friends!

“Tour with Cliff and Robert rheDriver”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

Cliff gave a very knowledgeable,entertaining,and extensive view of New York City in four hours. I doubt that we missed any highlights. It was everything that he had promised and more. It far exceeded my expectations. He answered all of our questions in a clear and complete manner.
Robert is an exceptionally excellent driver who managed New York traffic in a skillful, safe, and relaxed way. He was very pleasant, helpful, and kind,as well as a fine conversationalist when we made stops along the way. Cliff's wife was delightful and helpful in the phone conversations that I had with her.

“NYC Girls Trip!”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

My mother, sister and I went to NYC for a long weekend. We have been many times so we were looking for a tour that would show is some sights we had not seen. Cliff was perfect, he planned out our route and kept us entertained all day with his knowledge....and humor. Cliff not only has great knowledge of the city and history but also the best restrooms in the city :) which being pregnant with my first child was a MUST! We would highly recommend Cliff and his private tour with car and driver! Thanks Cliff and Rob!
