Super. We had some rescheduling to do because of bad weather the day before, but Remo worked hard to make sure we could see as much as we could see during the limited time and yucky weather. He accommodated everything our disjointed group asked for with a smile. It was a pleasure to spend a couple of mornings with him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Jenny!

Remo was an excellent guide, informative, well prepared and a very friendly and engaging personality. His tour perfectly met the 'off the beaten track' description and how else would we have found where Nicole Kidman used to live! A perfect tour for anyone wanting to explore beyond the environs of Times Square and Grand Central Station. We will certainly book Remo when next in New York.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Such a pleasure to offer these little 'nuggets' to be found in the City!

Very personable, knowledgeable, and flexible. We'll hire him the next time we do a Tour By Locals. He has several more.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Jeffery... I enjoy both the City and, possibly even more so, the people I get to spend time with. And it was an absolute pleasure showing you special aspects of New York along with the better known spots. I look forward to seeing you again. I enjoyed being with you. - All the best, Remo.

Remo was a great guide, very personable and adjusted the tour to fit our interests. Not going to find that level of service or experience at any other NYC tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure showing you New York off the beaten track! I do hope you come again! Thanks for asking me to be your guide!

Remo is an excellent tour guide. He is very knowledgeable about the area and the history. He had the local train tickets ready. The whole tour was very interesting and he covered a lot of area. He was truly interested in explaining the history of the streets and the buildings. High line Park was my favorite.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: The High Line is indeed fabulous. Its such a joy showing great people like Seshu the City. Thanks, Seshu, for choosing Tours by Locals and asking me to give you a NYC experience!

The energy was law. We felt like we knew so much more. The guide was keeping silence for a lot of time where we had to ask him. It was my bf's valentines gift and I felt that it was such a failure . The guide never mantioned his name and no presentation whatsoever. There were cople highlights... BUT still ...
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: After introducing myself, we started the walking tour on this brutal cold day. I was sorry to see the guests were not quite dressed for it. This may have affected this couple; one who was new to our country and the other a true New Yorker who has lived and worked on many of these very streets his whole life. I have done this tour innumerable times and ALWAYS received great ratings. I am sorry that unavoidable circumstances and her different expectations contributed to this guests disappointment.

Great tour with Remo. He met us at our hotel promptly and we went by subway to Chesea Market, the Highline, Greenwich Village, Chinatown and Little Italy. It was nice walking around the residential area of the village, stopping in little parks to talk and rest, and experiencing a different side of NYC. We also were fortunate to meet and talk with the Fire Chief of one of the fire stations involved with 911. Lovely day with a friendly, personable guide.
Remo was brilliant as our tour guide whilst visiting NYC.He personalised our tour to suit the needs of not only myself ,but that of my 21 yr old daughter,ensuring that the tour was both informative and fun for the both of us.I have no hesitation in recommending and using Tours by Locals and Remo in the future,it was an experience i will never forget!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Kate. It was a real pleasure showing you and your daughter this fabulous city. Come again. There is more to see! All the best, REMO
