Language(s)

explanation

English (fluent)

See sights known & unknown with a seasoned guide in a safe & comfortable vehicle. No worries about walking, weather or crowds.


I will meet you at the New York City location of your choice & take you to those sights in the city of most interest to you. At the beginning of our tour, we will customize together your day & itinerary.

In addition to being a resident New Yorker for over 30 years, I am a NYC Dept. of Consumer Affairs licensed sightseeing guide. Additionally, both my vehicle & I are licensed by the New York City Taxi & Limousine Commission, assuring you a safe & fully insured journey through the city.

Experience air conditioned comfort in summer; heated comfort in winter & dry comfort regardless of the season. One of the big benefits of touring by vehicle, as opposed to underground by subway, is you get to experience all of the sights & sounds of the city above ground. I am always sure to point out passing places along the way. I will even go a few blocks out of the way just to point out those places of special interest. Don't spend your time in New York underground! See the city in relaxed (not crowded subway) comfort!
