This is the real New York - where more than 80% of us live and most tourists never get to visit.


New York is far more than the Empire State Building, Times Square and Rockefeller Center - all of which are in Manhattan. Most tourists never venture beyond Manhattan, yet more than 80% of us live in these other areas of New York.

On this tour I take you to neighborhoods in Brooklyn, Bronx and Queens (you have the option of switching Harlem for the Queens or the Bronx). You will get a taste of the "real New York. " Touring by private vehicle allows us to travel quickly from borough to borough using interconnecting highways. The same tour by subway would take days (plus what you mostly experience by subway would be underground).

We will visit the local neighborhoods, sights, markets and have lunch at a real local place.

We are not able to leave our vehicles unattended in front of New York City hotels and come into the lobby to retrieve guests, in order to allow unencumbered access by emergency vehicles and crews. I drive a black Toyota Sienna mini-van that will have a sign with your name in the window. I can always be reached on my mobile / cellphone number that will be included with your reservation.

Transportation

I drive a 2019 Toyota Limited Premium Sienna - the most expensive & luxurious mini-van on the market, with front & rear moon roofs to see the tall buildings; reclining leather captain's chairs for your riding comfort; air conditioning; electric windows; & a built-in amplifying system to easily hear I say.

I operate in full compliance with the law requiring both drivers AND THEIR VEHICLES engaged in sightseeing to be licensed by the NYC Taxi & Limousine Commission and insured by commercial livery insurance
