Jeff D.

New York, NY, United States

I am a long-time New Yorker, licensed Tour Guide, and Travel Writer.

With over two decades of experience, I lead tours of NYC's iconic sites (the Statue of Liberty, the Met Museum, Broadway theatres, etc. ), neighbourhoods, food and themed tours. I have created walking tours for local tour companies and crafted multi-day NYC itineraries for clients. My forte: tours focused on New York's fascinating history and cultures.

As a writer, I have written over 150 articles about New York, covering NYC landmarks, neighbourhoods, history, dining, and events. Exploring the city and sharing it with others is a labour of love - I am passionate about all things New York City.

I strive to make every tour an occasion - a superb experience blending in-depth information, local insight, illuminating stories, plenty of discoveries and fun. I combine expertise and enthusiasm to create tours that are one-of-a-kind, unforgettable New York experiences.

A Recent Review of this guide

Personalised tour of New York which I highly recommended if you have limited time in New York. Our guide Jeff was superb. He is knowledgeable and knows everything about New York. Jeff met us at the Penn station and gave us an overview of the places that we would visit. We visited all the places we wanted to see at our own pace. My family and I had and enjoyable day out in New York and learned some interesting facts about all the places we visited. Wished we had more time in New York. Thanks Jeff.
