explanation

English (fluent)

This is the real New York - where more than 80% of us live and most tourists never get to visit.


New York is far more than the Empire State Building, Times Square and Rockefeller Center - all of which are in Manhattan. Most tourists never venture beyond Manhattan, yet more than 80% of us live in these other areas of New York.

On this tour I take you to neighborhoods in Brooklyn, Bronx and Queens (you have the option of switching Harlem for the Queens or the Bronx). You will get a taste of the "real New York. " Touring by private vehicle allows us to travel quickly from borough to borough using interconnecting highways. The same tour by subway would take days (plus what you mostly experience by subway would be underground).

We will visit the local neighborhoods, sights, markets and have lunch at a real local place.

Transportation

2015 Toyota mini-van - air conditioned, leather seats, electric windows & amplifying system. I operate in full compliance with the law, requiring drivers & vehicles engaged in sightseeing to be licensed by the Taxi & Limousine Commission. There are unscrupulous guides who illegally use a personal vehicle. In an accident, the vehicle is uninsured. Private passenger car insurance is void, if the vehicle is used in commerce.

What’s Included

Except for lunch, the price is all inclusive - everything is included (tolls, parking, etc). You will have nothing more to pay.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

20 dollars - $20 per person for lunch (I buy my own).

What’s Extra

There is nothing extra

A Recent Review of this tour

I highly recommend this tour and Ronald was a fantastic guide. He went over and above the time due to traffic and made sure we didn't miss anything. Ronald is very knowledgable and a pleasure to chat to and also very capable at navigating the traffic. A great way to see a different side of NYC for the whole family.
