A New York Christmas Tour designed to keep you warm, dry, off the ice and out of the wind.
Christmas in New York is a very special time of year - almost magical! I have been conducting New York Christmas Tours for 12 seasons now and they are a huge success. On this tour, I will take you to the iconic New York holiday sights, as well as to some of off the beaten path local holiday gems. If you want outstanding holiday card pictures for seasons to come - this tour is for you! If you pick up gifts along the way, you can store them in my vehicle and not have to worry about dragging them on and off of subways, buses, across ice covered sidewalks and in the snow. If you are interested in this tour, it is important to reserve early. Every year, I book almost every day solid, between Thanksgiving and New Years, with this tour. Don't delay - book your tour today!

Ronald was very pleasant and accommodating. His goal was to make us happy and he succeeded. He is very knowledgeable regarding the history of New York. Not the stale book knowledge, but a fresh and genuine interest all things New York. The itinerary was changed to suit our interest. Ronald took us to places in Manhattan that we did not know existed. The tour was not with a cold individual that has done the tour many times before, but felt like a friend showing us around the town. Vehicle was great.
