See highlights of Manhattan and Brooklyn on this 9-Hour Private Driving Tour


On the Manhattan portion of this tour, I take you to those iconic sights people think of, when they think of New York. I also take you into the neighboods, each with its own character, personality and little subculture. It is a great overview, helping you to learn "the lay of the land" and determine where you want to go back to and spend more time, during the rest of your stay.

I will also take you to Brooklyn - "the soul of New York" and America's first suburb.

If Brooklyn was its own city, as it was until 1898, it would be the 4th largest city in the USA. Settled by the Dutch in 1634, "Breukelen" has always been rich with people enclaves, their cultures and cusines.

The first & largest battle of the Revolution, took place here. In its waters, more patriots died of neglect on prison ships than in all the battles of the Revolution combined. The largest pre-Civil War ensemble of homes in American is located here.

Brooklyn is teaming with history & culture. You are so close - don't miss it!

A Recent Review of this tour

Ronald was punctual in picking us up. He went over the tour details and giving us choices on what to see and do. We really enjoyed this tour and it gives a better look at NYC. Our favorite was seeing the 3D model of the whole city. Ronald is knowledgeable and readily answered all my questions. Also, he did a fantastic job driving is all over the city and finding parking. I highly recommend booking a tour with Ronald.
