Private tour guide Ronald (Scott)

Ronald (Scott)

New York, NY, United States

Hi! You can call me by my middle name - Scott. I am a driver-guide offering PRIVATE DRIVING TOURS of New York City and DAY TRIPS out of New York, using a late model, roomy and comfortable 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 (14 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

We had a great Brooklyn tour experience with Ronald who is very knowledgeable of all history, particularly New York and Brooklyn. We visited many locations that provided exceptional views of the city and the bridges and drove through different neighborhoods taking in the diverse cultures and experienced the true melting pot of immigrants. Ronald is also very personable and was a pleasure to be with and share stories.
