Michael D.

New York, NY, United States

Michael D. - Private Tour Guide. I am a licensed New York City Sightseeing Guide and President of the Guides Association of New York City (GANYC).

A life long New Yorker, my family roots in this great city date back to the 1850's. There is a lot of NYC in my DNA.
As an experienced traveler I appreciate how important a guide can be for enhancing a visitor's experience. Getting to know a new place with a local makes all the difference.
New York City - packed with things to do, places to go and people to see - can be a little overwhelming without the expertise of a native to show you the ropes. My tours will help you get the most out of your visit to our beautiful Metropolis.
My goal as your guide is to help you fall in love with this city. I have given tours on boat, bus, foot, car and subway. Customized tours built around your interests are a specialty.
Contact me with any questions. I look forward to providing you with a memorable and exciting visit to The Big Apple.

A Recent Review of this guide

Michael was a super guide. We have never taken a private tour before and it was the perfect way to take the 9/11 tour. We learned and saw so much more than if we had walked on our own. Michael brought each of the memorials to life and we felt honoured to see hidden and almost forgotten statues. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and memories with us.
