If you prefer to experience your tour in the warmth (in Winter); air conditioned coolness (in Summer); and dryness (in rain or snow), with an experienced (11 years); mature and knowledgeable tour guide, then I am the one for you! I enable you to see the city up close and personal, with a little bit of a buffer from the crowded sidewalks, subways and buses. The use of a vehicle also provides the flexibility to easily get to those not so easy to get to places by subway and bus, without spending a lot of time walking.
I am completely flexible as far as times and itineraries are concerned. I operate on your schedule, at your pace, with your comfort, desires and wishes as my highest priorities.
Please browse my published tour options for a sample of how we can make the most of your time here in New York City. Should you have any special requests or if you prefer a customized tour itinerary, just let me know by clicking the 'Ask a Question' link and I will get back to your promptly.
If you prefer having a separate driver and guide, I can arrange that at a greatly discounted rate.
I look forward to making your visit to New York City absolutely unforgettable and one you want to repeat.
See you soon!
A Recent Review of this guide
My husband, son and I cannot rate this tour highly enough. Ronald was an absolutely excellent driver and guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and, on discovering our enthusiasm for the east coast music scene, shared many anecdotes which we very much enjoyed. He happily tweaked the tour to accommodate an independently pre-booked lunch reservation and, all in all, did everything he could to ensure that we had an absolutely first rate experience. Thank you so much! Colin, Dorothy & Jamie Sim, UK.
