Robin is passionate about her city, knows the history about so many things and imparts her knowledge to her clients. We walked over 5 miles and enjoyed every step of the way. She accommodated requests for places we wanted to see and goodies we wanted to eat. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Thank you Robin for an outstanding day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I loved walking the city with you and showing you some of the wonderful neighborhoods. Thank you for joining me. I hope to see you again in the city.

Robin was so flexible on amending our tour to suit exactly what we wanted to see and also things that we didn't know we wated to see but loved. From history to places to music she has so much knowledge to share. Thanks for a great day out in NYC
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was great spending time with both of you and I'm glad I was able to accommodate your needs. I hope to see you again in New York. Thanks for the five star review.

We highly recommend Robin as a guide in New York City! Her depth and breadth of knowledge about major and anecdotal facts that are both historical and current is extensive and quite entertaining. Her family has lived in New York for several generations, contributing to her understanding and passion for all things Manhattan. Most importantly, Robin takes her work to heart, and sincerely wishes to match each individual's interest with the content of her tour. An excellent choice!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the wonderful review. I had such a good time with your family. Please stay in touch whenever you come here even if it's just for a quick hello. Regards to all and hugs.

I had a busy working day and couldn't stay with my 16 year young daughter. I found the 'ToursByLocal' website, went through the reviews and saw that Robin had many positive reviews. I emailed her and got quickly an answer after which I entrusted my most valued capital to her for a full day. My daughter was delighted about the day she spent with Robin. She was very approachable, personal & flexible. They both decided together how to spent the day based on my daughter's interests;a day she will never forget
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the wonderful review. It was a fun day and she was a delight.

Jodi SmithUnited States
I (along with my cousin, her 13 year old granddaughter and my 18 year old daughter)booked the all day private NY City tour with Robyn. the trip was tailored to our likes and requests and we had the best time! We appreciated the last minute driver to accommodate our needs. The girls made memories of a life time! We couldn't be happier with the experience. We highly recommend this tour and hope to travel to New York again soon. When we do we will be getting in contact with Robin for another tour!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I had a blast with you all. I was glad I was able to show you so much. Can't wait until you back.

Robin is a local New Yorker and knows New York. We were thoroughly pleased with our private tour of the East Village, Little Italy and China Town.If you love The Godfather, Goodfellas, and Boardwalk Empire, I highly recommend Robin and this tour. She will show you the real history in this area of NYC.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the great review. I had a wonderful time with you. Hope to see you again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for review I learned so much from you about cattle. Thanks for that information. Great time with you come back soon.
Eleanor KennedyLondon, United Kingdom
Robin has an encyclopedic knowledge of her home town and is a great guide! She sets the day according to your agenda so you can see what you want and she has the stories to go with it. A wonderful way to spend a day in the Big Apple!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your feedback. I had a great time with you. Hope to see you again in NYC.
Jennifer McLaughlinUnited States
This was my 10yo's first trip to NY and Robin did such a wonderful job showing her neighborhoods like Chinatown, Little Italy and Soho. She taught us how to navigate the subways, what to look for (and stay away from) when shopping, she had us try exotic fruit in Chinatown that I had never heard of, gave us our first (and amazing!) cannoli in Little Italy. It wasn't just a tour, it was such a great way to experience these neighborhoods. And her accent and NY personality had us in stitches the whole time!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the wonderful review. I had so much fun with the both of you.
Sean MaloneUnited Kingdom
If you ever get the opportunity to go on a walking tour with Robin, grab it with both hands - this woman is amazing. We've returned back to England full of stories that we learnt on our tour: rich history, fabulous food and great music - you name it, Robin will take you there.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the review. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay in NYC. I had a great time with you and your family. Regards to all. Hope to see again soon.
Shannon SypoltUnited States
My husband and I have been to NYC several times, but wanted to take our kids on a real tour of the Big Apple. We lead busy lives as most families do. We could have spent hours researching how to get where, what to do, what to see, where to eat, what was cool, but Robin did all of that for us with an awesome smile and a wealth of knowledge about the city's history! My kids are ages 8 and 9, and they were captivated by her. We would definitely tour with her again! We will forever remember this trip!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You were such fun to be with. Thank you for your review. I look forward to seeing you again.
Nicola Short OnUnited Kingdom

Our tour was great. Robbin was fantastic and gave us a remarkable tour of the city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: So happy you enjoyed our 3 days together
…a very warm, engaging, sincere, down to earth, and knowledgeable guide, with endless enthusiasm and passion for her subject. She is very friendly, articulate and so well informed about the history and geography of New York City. We cannot recommend her highly enough and are very grateful that she was our guide for our first (but not certainly not our last!) visit to New York City together. Passion, knowledge, enthusiasm, great energy-all in all, just a wonderful guide and an amazing experience.Thank You!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: WOW! This is such a beautiful review. I loved spending the day with you it was truly a joy. Please come back to visit I look forward to showing you more.
Dona BrooksUnited States
Robin was a great guide for 2 adults and 2 girls ages 10 and 11. She told interesting stories as we passed through different neighborhoods and stopped for cookies or treats at fun shops. She made great suggestions to help us navigate on our next couple of days in NYC. We saw sites that most tourists don't even know exist. Thanks, Robin!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Donna, Thanks for great review. Hope to see you in NYC again soon. Regards to the family.
Sarah PassantinoUnited States
Robin was excellent in her knowledge of New York and knowing what we wanted. We were very pleased with the entire tour and can not wait to try another one soon. We learned so much about New York and she kept it very interesting. Thank you so much we could not have seen so much and learned so much without Robin. I took over 500 pictures of New York and I know we saw everything we wanted plus more. The history that we learned was excellent. I think we even may have a wonderful friend for life. Thanks again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Thanks for the review. You do have a friend for life.How funny as I am writing this you called. Great to speak with you. Keep in touch. Come back soon next time Coney Island. Best
Had Fantastic Time with Robin. No one can do this like her
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Had such a good time with you and the group. Check out the photo on Facebook for Metro NYC tours. Hope to see you back here.
