New York City Tour - designed specifically for cruise ship passengers

Enjoy some time in NYC after your cruise.

I'm a native New Yorker and I have a great love and an encyclopedic knowledge of New York City. I'll show you sites and tell you stories illustrating New York's rich history.

We'll see Central Park, New York City's backyard, drive down Fifth Ave passing Trump Tower, St. Patrick's Cathedral and Rockefeller Center. We'll cruise through Times Square, Greenwich Village, SoHo all the way down to NYC's Financial District. We'll stop and pay our respects at the 911 Memorial. Next, it's on to one of NYC's more recent attractions, the Highline, a 1. 25-mile linear park on an abandoned elevated train platform. From there, we'll head back uptown and stop at the lovely Grand Central Terminal which has a great dining concourse for lunch. We'll finish the tour at the Winter Garden Theater for the matinee performance of School of Rock. Finally, we'll whisk you out to JFK for your flight home.


I will customize your tour according to your specific interests. We can mix and match any and all of the sites of New York City to provide you with a truly memorable experience of your visit. I offer all-around orientation tours as well as more site-specific tours focusing on your interests.

Attractions we might visit or at least view include:
Times Square, Central Park, Broadway theater district, Wall Street & the Financial District, Empire State Building, Grand Central Terminal, Chrysler Building, Rockefeller Center, Greenwich Village, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Chinatown, and others, time permitting.

We will visit as many attractions as we can, It will depend on your preferences for must-see highlights. Keep in mind that 3. 5 - 4 hours is enough to enjoy a few attractions, but we will need to focus on your must-sees in order to ensure that your tour experience is as enjoyable as possible.

A Recent Review of this tour

Best day we had in NYC. Our flight was delayed and our guy Matthew rearranged his day for us. Matthew showed us everything we wanted to see and more, plus we had a day full of laughs. He is so much fun to hang out with and if we ever go back we will forsure use his service again. Matthew is a real NYC gem!
