This is the second time I've taken a tour with Brian. He offers a top notch service and so much better than doing some larger group tour. This time we had two teenagers with us and they enjoyed as well, except for the cooler rainy day, it was absolutely perfect! You can't go wrong with Brian as he is extremely personable and an cater a tour especially for you.

Prompt arrival. Clearly ensure the tour was exactly what and where we wanted. Kept his pace comfortably with ours. As for Brian's knowledge and presentation, it was exceptional. He provided as much detail as we desired on every aspect of the tour and made it just personal enough to appreciate the history and emotional aspects of many parts of the tour. Absolutely wonderful.

2nd day of touring NYC with Brian. He walked us through Central Park and showed us not only the hot spots, but quite a few of the hidden gems within the park. We traveled through midtown & down to Greenwich Village, where we had a celebrity siting/encounter. We finished on the high line & Chelsea Market. Not only does Brian know the city inside out, he is so knowledgeable on the history of every nook & cranny. We are sad that we will be touring without his help the rest of our trip, Brian was awesome!

Brain has been a joy to tour with during our day at the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Financial District and Ground Zero. His knowledgeable insight from a local New Yorker's point of view is so unique and appreciated. He made riding the subway for our first time feel like a breeze. Looking forward to our second day of tours with him!

We stopped in New York for just a day, a party of four, one which needed a walker for assistance. Brian was extremely helpful in finding stops that would accommodate us. He was also very knowledgeable & catered to our schedule of what we wished to see. Brian brought the sites and local areas to life. He knew a great deal about the past and present New York, it's people and places. I was able to create a great memory and Brian's tour made me curious to explore more of New York on my next visit.

Brian was a very knowledgeable and a smart tour guide. He made very good use of our long layover at Newark and was able to get us to all of the major sites we wanted to see on a driving tour of NYC! Fabulous tour and highly recommend!!!

Guide Brian gave us personal insights into 9/11, with personal anecdotes making the first responders heroism so alive to us today. It was a very good day spent with Brian, it was my husband's first trip into NYC and Brian was instrumental into his appreciation of NYC, a city I love to visit.

This One Day New York tour was fabulous! We're surprised how quickly the seven hours passed by. Brian was relaxed, patient and to the point. He knew the history very well. He has a great talent for putting the "story" together in a very interesting way. We recommend this tour and Brian for any that are considering learning more about New York.

Brian is a great guide! He was very knowledgeable, professional and fun. We really enjoyed spending one day with him. The story about 9/11 was very special to us. He took us several spots and talked a lot about the tragedy as a local. I am also a tour guide in Tokyo. I learnt a lot from him. Thank you Brian for fantastic day! Hope to see you again.

We have been to New York a couple of times previously and tended to do the usual tourist things without much insight into local history and trivia. Booking Brian was an inspirational decision, he is a gentle giant full of knowledge and interesting stories, he obviously cares deeply about his city. This tour made our trip and that was all down to Brian, things that you normally pass by without a second thought were pointed out to us and were accompanied by an interest fact or story, Thank you Brian.

We had an 8 hour tour with Brian and he was AWESOME!! He was excellent with communication via email prior to the tour, especially regarding what we wanted to see on our tour. During the tour he was very flexible with breaks, change of plans, etc. He was very personable, and fun. Brian was very knowledgeable about the city and we saw and learned a LOT! Cannot express enough how much we HIGHLY recommend him!!!!

Let's get this out of the way up front; Brian is AWESOME!!! You could not have a more knowledgeable, personable, interesting, fun, etc guide leading you around NYC than him. My family learned so much about the city through his stories & insight that one could never pick up simply by reading a book, surfing the internet, or watching a YouTube video. With him, you're getting someone that was born & raised in NYC and knows his town intimately, inside & out. Thanks again Brian; until next time! Mike

We had a fantastic custom tour with Brian. We had requested to tour "mafia" spots in NYC. He had several details about different famous mobsters and stories we had never heard. Although I have been to NYC several times, he was able to give us very easy helpful hints on getting around the city so the remainder of our trip was improved. He took us to several points of interest that allowed for great photo opportunities that we would have otherwise missed. Thanks again Brian for a great day!!

We liked Brian a lot. He gave us a fascinating tour and insight into the life of a New Yorker - now and in the past. His stories about 9/11 were very moving, but told in a sincere and compassionate way. We did not think 8 hours could pass so quickly! He also gave us useful tips to help us in planning the following day. Thank you Brian - wish we had had 2 days with you!

My mom and I had a wonderful journey to New York City. Our main attraction was Statue of Liberty as I held the Crown ticket. Brian took us to SoL as well as other attractions in NYC and explained very well the history of each sight. Traveling with Brian was like traveling with an old friend with lots of stories to catch up. It was a memorable experience that we will never forget. I would definitely recommend traveling in NYC with Brian.
