New York City Private Tours

Discover the 'Big Apple' with your own New York private tour guide.

If you haven't been to Manhattan before, you'll probably want to visit the major sites like Times Square, Central Park and the Statue of Liberty. But a local guide also can take you "behind the scenes" to see what New Yorkers love best about their city. Greenwich Village's cheesiest pizza, a terrific Lower East Side deli, the best off-Broadway productions, local boutiques, niche museums, historical neighborhoods in the five boroughs...Your local guide will uncover it all for you.

Choose from the New York City tours offered by ToursByLocals, but feel free to suggest alternative places and activities. Your private tour can be customized by your personal guide to include exactly what you want to see and do in Manhattan and beyond.

Remember, each local guide has been checked out by ToursByLocals and is a passionate person, keen to show you 'their' New York!
Tour Guide Legal Requirements
Most states offer certification and training, however the majority of states do not require a guide to have a license.

There are exceptions such as New York City, Washington DC, and New Orleans, that do require the guide to be licensed.

For state specific information, please contact ToursByLocals support. report error

All ToursByLocals guides have met our ToursByLocals Guide Requirements which includes warranting that they can legally give the tours they offer.

  THE TOURSBYLOCALS DIFFERENCE
  • Choose your own guide. See their photos, read their bios and communicate with them prior to booking your tour.
  • It's more affordable than you might think. Our pricing is per-tour NOT per-person so if there are 3 or more in your group, you'll probably pay less than if you took a big bus tour.
  • Every tour is private. Your guide will spend time only with you and the people you're traveling with.
  • Go at your own pace. See as much as you can or slow things down to a saunter. With your private guide, your day is flexible.
  • Benefit from a local's knowledge. Access more intimate, out of the way spots that have never seen a bus tour.
  • Every tour is customizable. See the sights YOU want, try the food YOU crave, learn about what interests YOU the most.
  • Questions? Talk to a REAL person. Our customer support team offers reliable, friendly service plus a 24 hour emergency hotline.
