Brian was a wonderful tour guide! This tour was filled with so many sights and such interesting information. We were wanting to really get to know the city and feel comfortable with how to get around the city and that is exactly what Brian accomplished for us! We even took the subway on our own a couple of days after our tour and didn't get lost! Thank you Brian for such an awesome experience! You made our vacation so enjoyable and memorable!

We enjoyed our tour with Brian. He took us to the locations we requested and explained much information about those places. We felt very comfortable with him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Dale, I had a great day with the two of you from the time I met you at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal to dropping you off at LaGuardia. Just a nice day start to end.

Brian is pure New York. From his accent to his incredible stories, he will keep you excited the whole day. You will also be tired as he covers a lot of ground! You are certain to enjoy any tour you make take with him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Lol, but as I said, when we're in New York I'm not the one with the accent! Thank you for your kind comments.

Thank you for two awesome days. The stories were the best part. It made the things we were looking at and going to mean something to us. It wasn't just a statue or a bull or a building. It was a story and we ate it all up. We enjoyed our travels through the city.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for two wonderful days and thank you for bringing the good weather with you. Hope NYC was a great way to top off you trip of the USA.

Trust me on this, Brian will exceed all of your expectations as a tour guide! I was visiting from Texas with daughters and I knew that I didn't want to 'spin my wheels' trying to find my way around the big apple, so Brian gave me the grand tour! He and I worked together to personalize the tour to suit our needs. But, to be honest, the best part was Brian's background knowledge of the statues, buildings....history. The stories he shares allow you to leave New York rich with knowledge and love for NYC!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, had a great couple of days with you and your daughters.

Brian gave us an ENTIRE tour of NYC over 5 days. One minute we toured historical places of the 1800s and the next homes of movie stars. He made it interesting to our entire family, including a 9, 11, and 15 year old. There wasn't just something for everyone but everything was for everyone. The best analogy of his tour is the view of the skyscrapers - we stood at the base and saw everything up close then went to the top and saw the whole 360 degree view. Brian is a premiere tour guide of NYC! Excellent!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind comments Shelby and thank you also for welcoming me into your family for those five brief days. It's these kinds of tours that make me love being a tour guide!

I gave Brian big list of places to see and he suggested advice. Did a great job getting us to places. He was really good at what time and where to go. Suggested places maybe not to see. Was very honest on what to see, didn't make up stuff is he didn't know anything. Was lot of fun walking around with in in New York. Can't say enough how happy we were to get him as our guide. Got lot of information. knew lot of stuff about New York.

Brian was spot on with the facts and history. Kept it interesting yet informative. We walked many blocks and even with my wife recovering from a broken foot we managed to see most everything we set out for.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Had a very nice time with you both and happy you enjoyed your time here in NYC.

Brian was an excellent tour guide. He made our trip really memorable. We saw so much in two days and we wouldn't have achieved that on our own.

Can't imagine there being a better tour guide when visiting New York City than Brian! He was so knowledgeable and helpful and easily was able to make the city really come alive and pop for us! Brian made our visit there so much more memorable and enjoyable. We experienced things we would never have been able to had he not been pointing them out to us. And he was able to tell us so much of the rich history of the city. We think Brian is the perfect tour guide - easy going and totally professional!

Brian did an absolutely outstanding job in our tour of New York. He was extremely knowledgeable, informative, and attentive/accommodating to our needs and wishes. With a touch of wit he really "made" our adventure in the city with us wanting to stay longer. Despite the cold and drizzly rain, Brian made our NY experience fantastic. Thank you so much.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jerry for your kind review. With the weather this tour had all the potential to turn into a disaster but you and Val turned it into a great two days!

Brian was very informative and did a great job of explaining everything. He is knowledgeable and we learned so much. We had given him a list of the things we wanted to see and he made sure we saw everything. This was our first time in New York and I think the private tour was perfect. Make sure you bring good walking shoes as we walked a total of 38,000 steps over the 2 days. It rained one day, but that didn't dampen our spirits. Brian gave us tips on other things to do and see. We had a great time.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Tracy for your wonderful review. I had a great time touring with you and Kirsten and I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed your trip to New York.

Brian was everything we wanted & expected in a personal tour guide! We told him what we wanted to see and he catered his tour to meet what we wanted. Brian was a wealth of information and knowledge that helped make our NYC trip one of our favorites. Brian took us on a whirlwind 2-day tour of the city, provided us with historical background on all the different venues, gave us tips on taking the subway and taxi, and gave us a trip we will never forget. I cannot imagine any other guide doing a better job

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Monika for your kind words. I had a wonderful time with you and Van. So glad you enjoyed your first visit to New York.

WOW! What a fantastic guide! We are a girl scout troop and the girls wanted to rate Brian at 5000 stars, that says it all! Brian was knowledgeable, friendly, caring and considerate. He showed us things we would have never found or seen on our own. He was great with the kids and adults, showing us different things that were interesting to all ages. He gave us a great tour we will all remember. I will recommend him to anyone traveling to NY.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Lynn, Thank you so much for your kind and generous feedback. The truth is when I have the privilege of guiding a group like yours the job becomes incredibly easy. You have a fantastic group of young ladies and I'm happy you enjoyed your trip to New York.
