Geovanni is an excellent guide. His energy and excitement made the two days we spend with him so special. His knowledge about good food in NY is exceptional.

What a great tour !!! Geovanni is an amazing tour guide ... dynamic , well informed , fluent in Spanish. He is passionate about NYC and gives it all in the tour... culture , art, history , food , everything . I have been to NYC many times but was taking family from Spain for the first time .... I went to places I had never gone ... this tour is a must for anybody visiting NYC for the first time or coming back.

Geovanni was a very knowledgeable guide with a true passion for the city. He certainly knows the history of New York inside and out. It was our first trip to The Big Apple and we only had 2 days to tour. While we had never used a guide, we are grateful that we did. We were able to see all the major sites we wanted, plus ate some superb local food. We would highly recommend Geovanni. Thank you for a trip we will always remember. We feel we left the city with a new friend. Best wishes to you, Geovanni.

Travelling with my three sons and never having been to NYC before I wanted a practical guide to navigating the city as well as seeing the main attractions. Geovanni produced exactly what I'd hoped for as I felt we'd seen a lot of the big sights during the tours but we also learned how to use the subway so we could explore ourselves during the rest of our stay. Geovanni also made us feel that we were on the inside track with lots of local information and visits outside the tourist traps.

We had a great time on our tour with Geovanni. He has a vast knowledge of New York, both its history and the best way to see everything in a short visit. Geovanni has a huge passion about his home town and this made everything we did even more interesting. In particular we enjoyed the 'foodie' tour. Especially the bagels and Katz Deli. Highly reccomended.
We just returned from NYC and booked two private half-day tours with Geovanni. I highly recommend him as a tour guide - he is so knowledgeable and passionate about the city and we learned a lot about the history and architecture. He was great and it was money well spent! If you aren't content with just 'skimming the surface' and want to hear a lot of the back-stories, you owe it to yourself to spend a few hours with Giovanni!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You so much for taking the time to write that lovely review. It was a pleasure and privilege being able to elevate your trip to NYC.

We had very limited hours to visit as much as possible of this wonderful city on weekend of September 11th. After a quick email and conversation with Geovanni, he crafted the perfect agenda for us. Note that this was extraordinarily complex because I had unexpectedly hurt my ankle and was confined largely to a scooter with strict instructions to stay off my foot. He designed a trip that left us in love with the city and considering him all but one of our family.

This was the 1st time I have used your service - both as a travel agent and client. And this fellow, was really superb. I can't say enough good things about him. He really helped me and my friend complete all the things we wanted to see in NYC both with interesting information and helped us get great photos. Thank you Geovanni. You were the best! Bill Lange
Patrick DodgeUnited States
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our two half day tour of NYC with Geovanni. We were amazed at how much we saw, learned, and the amount of terrain covered in only 8 hours. Geovanni is a NY native with a passion for his city and its' unique and interesting history. Geovanni offered plenty of history, stories, and information for each and every site we visited. He really knows how to bring history to life and offer information the average traveler would never know. He engages children and teens as well.

We have used Giovanni twice in NYC. First time, wife and I on our second visit to NYC after discovering on our first visit that we wasted a lot of time just deciding and getting somewhere. Second time, wife and daughter and her sister and her daughter on a girl trip to NYC. Both times he was excellent. He customizes the experience around your desires, budget and ability to motivate. Quite knowledgeable of the city, full of interesting facts and very personable. Highly recommend this guy.
Christine H.United States
Geovanni was an excellent guide -- informed, personable, and full of wonderful historical insights that made our visit to NewYork exceptionally special. Taking two half day day tours with Geovanni permitted us to absorb what we saw and learned. Giovanni's suggestions about what to do and see were invaluable. And great fun!
Ken GrundyLiverpool, United Kingdom
Geovanni is an outstanding guide and both attentive to requests and full of marvellous ideas. His suggestion that we do an 'express walk' through the Met Museum to see half a dozen masterpieces and then coffee was an inspiration to the group to go back and explore at their own pace. His suggestion that we include Brooklyn / Dumbo in our tour really enhanced the whole experience. He worked at very short notice and made the entire experience first class - thank you!
John WilliamUnited States
Could not be better. Really makes a trip to New York worth while.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I was more than happy to show you as much as I could at your families pace for three days. Especially with your fun family.
Christine H.United States
Geovanni was knowledgeable, friendly, fun, and tailored the tour to our interests. Having lived there all his life, his personal story of 9/11 helped my kids understand the events they did not experience firsthand. I wasn't sure if my son was getting it but after the tour I heard him tell his grandma that he was going to pay more attention in history class at school because of Geovanni. We sampled the best NY food throughout the tour and he took pictures of us from spots that most don't know about.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: So nice to hear. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to show your family the city I call home.
Chris RudUnited States
We hired Geovanni for two half days in NYC. We took our two 16 year old grandkids to NYC for three days. Geovanni was perfect! We managed to see everything on their list and so much more and we all really enjoyed spending the time with him. He adjusted in the moment based on how he was reading their energy and interest. My 14 year old granddaughter wants her 16 yr trip to be to NYC too and we will definitely work with Geovanni again for that trip.
Douglas RichardsUnited States
We are so thankful that we chose to "see" Manhatten with Geovanni's expert, fun and informative tour through the city!! We had a very short stay so having the best tour possible (not wasting our time trying to do it on our own) by choosing Geovanni gave us more than we ever imagined. Geovanni loves what he does and that is to make sure you leave his tour satisfied and knowing NY better than you did! He is passionate about life and making a difference in the world. He is a pleasure to spend time with!!
Patrick SweeneyUnited States
We completed tour of NYC with Giovanni and it was absolutely fantastic and so was G. When the weather forecast predicted rain all day Sat. G was flexible enough to put all 8 hours in one day. We viewed virtually everything from Times Square to Staten Island. G related historical information on every site we visited. I am a management consultant (PhD et all) and I could not find one, not one, way to make our tour better. G is clearly a professional and the best guide we ever utilized.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You. These nuggets of text on a screen mean so much and inspire. Thank You again.

The tour of new york city in two days with Geovanni was the best i have had so far (I have taken more than 18 tours by different guides from tours by locals.com). He has an in depth knowledge of new york city and it was a pleasure for me my wife and daughter, thanks Mr Geovanni.
We are so happy we hired Geovanni to be our personal tour guide for our last trip to NYC. We were a group of 3 & once he met us & spent the first hour or so with us, he knew our interests and tailored our tour to best suit us. We would not have seen even half the attractions or learned about the history on our own in that amount of time. We were thrilled with all that we experienced & would highly recommend Geovanni :) Thank you once again & I am sure we will see you on our next NYC trip!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: HI Renee, Thank You sooo much for the kind words. It was an absolute pleasure to show your family my city. I do sincerely hope our paths cross again!
Jean GoodwinUnited Kingdom
Outstanding tour tailored perfectly to suit the needs of our family. With only a few short days to see as much as we could, we knew a local guide was the way to go. Geovanni engaged our 3 boys aged 14,12 and 6 and gave us all an insight not only into the history of New York but into the life of a New Yorker. We would definetly recommend Geovanni to anyone considering a tour. A big thank you for a great experience which we remember for a long time to come. The Goodwin family x
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure engaging the boys and showing them the best of my hometown. Thank You so much for the kind words. ;) It's appreciated!
Larry BradyUnited States
Great tour by a very pleasant and knowledgeable local. Learned some bits of history that a lot of NYC locals probably don't know! Customized tour to meet our interests. Would highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure showing the two of you my city.

All my wife and I can say is outstanding. Geovanni is a true pleasure to tour NY with. We had a great time a really got to see alot of NY in a very short period of time. Hours were not enough, you need weeks. Geovanni is a foody and pointed out some great places to eat lunch. He is very knowledgeable and provides a great service. We hope that someday we could use his services again. Thank you Geovanni and good luck with your lady friend. Hope all goes well. Ron & Karen W.
Geovanni has a lot of knowledge. It gives you a very good history of New York. Saw in a short time all the famous landmarks. Thank you
Diana CahalUnited States
Geovanni is awesome. He has a love for architecture and history that pairs well with giving NYC tours. He will tailor the tour to what you want or, if you don't know, he'll design the tour for you. There were four in our group-two adults and two teens and he connected well with everyone. He gives you the local's view of the city and shares all sorts of wonderful morsels (info, sights, restaurants) that you won't find out about on the larger, package tours.Just a really nice guy! Definitely worth the $$.
Margie YoderIowa City, IA, United States
First trip to New York City for 4 Iowa women, ranging in age from 34 to 60. It was wonderful to have a guide with us a couple of days, so much territory covered and so much history given, which we would never of known unless with Geovanni. He introduced us to foods of New York City, which were great. We did not let the humidity and rain dampen our trip. He was very helpful on places to eat and go while not on the tour. Thank you Geovanni for a wonderful time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my pleasure to spend two days with you lovelies!
