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!

I operate in full compliance with the law, requiring both drivers and their vehicles engaged in sightseeing to be licensed by the Taxi & Limousine Commission. There are unscrupulous guides who illegally use a personal vehicle to conduct tours. In an accident, that vehicle and driver is uninsured. Private passenger car insurance is void, if the vehicle is being used for commercial purposes.
The price is all inclusive, unless you happen to choose a sight that charges an admission fee. Then, you will also have to pay the admission fee. Please see the itinerary section to the left for a list of sights where NO ADMISSION FEE is required.
Estimated Local Cash Needed
20 USA dollars per person - The only extra cash necessary is if you want to stop for any food or refreshment along the way.
If you happen to choose a sight that charges an admission fee. Then, you will have to pay the admission fee, in addition to the cost of the tour. Please see the itinerary section to the left for a list of sights where NO ADMISSION FEE required.
IF YOU PREFER HAVING A SEPARATE DRIVER AND GUIDE, I CAN ARRANGE THAT FOR AN ADDITIONAL $150 (5 guests maximum on tours with a separate driver and guide).
