Brian took the time to tailor our family trip to our pace and requirements. He was flexible when tickets were not available for attractions we would have liked and quickly substituted other pleasing locations. Knowledge and those little pieces of trivia showed he had a great grasp of his role and delivered a great all round experience. Brian....thanks you and 'Tours by Locals' again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jeremy for your kind comments and thanks to you and your wife for your service as police officers.

This is a must do tour of NYC. We learnt so much about the history with Brian. We have 3 children (6-13) and he made sure they were engaged and that we were all happy and catered to us all. :) A highlight of our trip we saw so much in one day. Thank you Brian! We will see you next time we are in new york! :)

All 5 of us were totally thrilled with our time spent touring with Brian. It was like spending the day with your good friend who knows all about the incredible history, personal stories and more in New York City and around the events of 9/11. He offered to adapt our trip to our "must see" list and taught us about using the subway system. When any of us or our friends visit NYC, we will highly recommend Brian!

The most fantastic day in New York with Brian ! Brian was a friendly, knowledgable and a highly professional guide. He guided us efficiently and safely where we didn't feel rushed or under pressure to move on to the next attraction. Brian happily answered our questions about American life and we learnt so many fascinating facts and stories about New York. Would definitely book another tour if we return to New York one day. A brilliant day enjoyed by all the family!

Brian spent the day showing us the World Trade Centre & we were so lucky for him to share his personal knowledge & experience with us. It was a very personal experience & unforgettable.. We were also able to cover a lot more with Little Italy & Chinatown as he was very flexible for us considering the weather... Hope we catch up soon again..

Brian was an awesome guide who was able to be very flexible with what we were trying to arrange with the time we had available in New York. Nothing was too hard for him to work around & the pace of the tour was excellent. His knowledge of the city & the history of the areas/landmarks is great with him willing to spend anytime needed to fully learn about & a native New Yorker to boot, would recommend him as a guide to anyone as well as book him again for ourselves.

We booked an 8 hour walking/subway tour with Brian on Sunday December 17 which just happens to be one of the busiest holiday weekends in New York. Brian met us on time in our hotel lobby and talked with us before we headed out. I was there with my 3 daughters so we felt safe, informed and really enjoyed Brian's knowledge of the city as a native New Yorker. The little details and history he shared about everything along our tour was amazing. He truly enriched our New York experience! Great job Brian!!

Brian was a fabulous guide...we had a group of 9 and he was very accommodating with regards to changes in our tour to satisfy our curiosity on somethings that were not "officially" part of our tour. He was extremely knowledgeable on the city and kept us busy, but also kept a reasonable pace for us all. He even pushed back our start time as we had morning rain. Great day and great tour guide, thanks Brian!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the kind comments Riki, had a great time with both families.

I needed a guide to help me get round New York on race day as my son was running the marathon. From my first contact with Brian with this unusual request he could not have been more accommodating. He responded promptly to all my emails , questions and anxieties! He managed to get me to three places to see my son run by and he very kindly videoed them and sent them to us. He is kind, thoughtful, professional, great company and I felt very safe with him. I highly recommend Brian as a tour guide.

We did 8 hours Manhattan walking tour with Brian and It was a great experience. "Thank you very much Brian". The tour was very well organized and we were very happy that we did it on our first day. We learned all parts of Manhattin island. A lot of valuable information were given by Brian. Definitely, one of the must do tours of New York. 8 hours tour was just enough, but, of course a bit tiring.

We took one day New York private tour with Brian and we loved it. Brian was very professional, courtesy, and very kind. Brian always wants us to have a great time without rush. He's very knowledgeable about New York and how to get around New York with less traffic and low price possible. I strongly recommend Brian Fisher to everyone. He's an excellent tour guide. We don't have any negative experience with him. Thank Brian very much for a pleasant tour.

Brian was excellent! We are a family of 9. Four adults and 5 kids ranging in age from 10 to 17. Tour was very family friendly. Brian is extremely knowledgeable. He demonstrated genuine love for the city and obviously enjoys his position as a tour guide. At first we were hesitant about hiring a guide, but definitely no regrets. He took us to so many places! He even added a bit more to our wish list. Brian thanks for a fun filled day! Will definitely recommend

HIGHLY recommend Brian. I could write a lot of flowery words, but it's easier to just say he is everything one would want in a tour guide. He confirmed the day before, showed up on time, followed the tour we signed up for, and brought visual aids to help us understand the history of what we were looking at, which I appreciated because it really brought the tour to life.. We never felt rushed and he never made us feel like we were just another client. Thank you so much, hope we see you again soon.

This was our first walking tour, and despite the steady rain that day, it was a great experience altogether! Brian's customized tour of NYC depicts his knowledge of and pride in his beloved city. He was able to accommodate the main places of interest we listed and was able to give us interesting tidbits about people and places. I personally enjoyed our subway experience as this was a first for us, too. Have already recommended this tour and Brian to several friends.

It was my first time visiting NYC so I decided to get a local guide. I am so grateful that I chose Brian as the guide He is a very friendly gentleman who is passionate about his city. I very much enjoyed strolling the city and listening to his stories about 9/11, Audrey Munson, John Lennon and the Strawberry Fields, and also the bear in Centrall Park zoo. Just like New Yorkers, we visit many places by walking and subways. Thanks so much Brian for giving me such a memorable experience. GBU!

Brian was GREAT! We were concerned that we would not be able to see as much as we wanted in a 8-hour tour but Brian did an amazing job of showing us many of NYC's highlights. Individual attention, intimate details and a pictorial notebook about New York's history were nice touches. Brian's personal reflections on the 9/11 Memorial made this a very meaningful memorial experience -- not a tourist attraction. Thank you Brian for making New York City come alive for us! It was worth every penny!.

This was a wonderful tour! It was like being guided around a BIG city with a friend, only better. We learned so many neat facts and history about NYC that we would have otherwise not known. We were only in the city 2 nights and decided we could see more by having someone who knew the city navigate us around! I would highly recommend Brian on any tour you would like of the city. He was informative and took the tour at our pace! If we go back we will certainly look him up again. Alex and Kelly

We could not have asked for a better guide.

His knowledge of NYC and stories really made the day personable and I can't list the interesting facts that he told us which we would never have known about had he not been there. This was our first trip to NYC and we definitely want to go back and we will be asking Brian for another tour.

Brian could not have been better! He had great stories about everyplace we stopped and knew incredible details. He was very accommodating to us (4 60 something's), our schedule, what we wanted to see and when we wanted to take breaks. This was a great way to get a very good overview if the city on our first day. We would hire him again in a second.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Leonard; I had a great time with your group and I promise if I make it out to Salt Lake I will take you up on your offer to reverse roles!
