Private tour guide Ronald

Ronald

New York, NY, United States

My name is Ronald and I am a private driver-guide offering PRIVATE DRIVING TOURS of the New York City area, and DAY TRIPS both to and out of New York, using a late model, roomy and comfortable touring vehicle that can accomodate up to six guests.

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!

Ronald

A Recent Review of this guide

Ronald is very pleasant and knowledgeable about NYC. He was very patient with my two young kids and in general very helpful with information about planning your visit in NYC. His van is very comfortable and his driving is excellent. I strongly recommend his services as a tour guide for NYC. thank you
