Jose R.

Brooklyn, NEW YORK, United States

Welcome to NYC! As a licensed tour guide and as a New Yorker, I have one primary goal: to make you fall in love with this city.

And if you already are in love with the city, I want to make you fall even deeper in love with it.

I believe that no tour should ever be the same because, let's be honest, every guest has different expectations and interests. I will take "my" New York and your New York dreams, put them together, and give you a tour you will never forget.

From the classic landmarks, to the "off the beaten path" New York.

From Times Square, all the way to Jackson Heights; I will make each neighborhood and landmark and exciting adventure.

As a former archaeologist, I like to uncover the layers that are hidden, even to well-seasoned New Yorkers. I have traveled to 25 countries and 20 states in the United States, therefore, I consider myself an experienced traveler who understands the demands and expectations that visitors to our city have.

I have led private and public walking tours, subway tours, bus tours, private sedan and SUV tours, and bicycle tours.
For New Jersey middle school students, and North Dakotan seniors. For Australian families, and Mexican corporate groups. And even for a Saudi prince!

No matter who you are or where you are from, I would love to show you my city!

Let me take you around in multiple languages, as I speak English, Spanish, Portuguese, and Norwegian.

Welcome to New York! ¡Bienvenidos a Nueva York! Bem-vindos para Nova Iorque! Vilkomen til New York!

A Recent Review of this guide

We did borough of Brooklyn tour with Jose and It was a great experience. "Thank you very much Jose". The tour was very well organized and we were very satified that we did this tour. Definitely, one of the must do tours of New York. 6 hours tour was just enough, no less-no more time was necessary.
