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.

Like most New Yorkers, I do not drive.

The best way to experience NYC is walking its streets and neighbourhoods. Tours are designed for exploration on foot, using public transportation or taxis/Uber as needed. A driver can be arranged upon request.
