Michael had an incredible amount of information and showed us many things that we would have overlooked or would not have understood their significance. They were no longer just parks or buildings but had stories and histories. He left us confident we could navigate this city on our own. His tour will be one of our top high lights to this amazing city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jean. It was such a pleasure to show you around the city and teach you and the girls to navigate the subway. Enjoy "The Lion King."

We loved our tour with Michael! He was so well-versed on the lower Manhattan area, including the financial district, architecture and early settlement chronology! We not only learned, but he encouraged us to look up and SEE what was around us of beauty and history! The best part was his sharing concerning 9/11 and taking us around the memorial area. We will never forget it - it was a moving experience! Thank you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Harriet. I had a wonderful time with your group. Please let me know when you are back in NYC.

This is the second time we've used Mike while visiting nyc. Our group (4) spent 3 days with him and had a great time visiting Broadway, Central Park, the Statue of Liberty and we even walked across the Brooklyn Bridge! He even found a great chocolate shop for us! I would definitely book him again whenever we go to nyc; he is a wealth of knowledge anout the city. Thanks,Mike, for another great tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Always wonderful to see you Carole. Thank you for the kind words. I had a wonderful time sharing the city with your family. Hope to see you again soon. Michael

I recently used Tours by Locals for a trip to NYC. Our tour guide, Michael D., was totally awesome! He was so personable and educational. He has a wealth of knowledge that made our trip extra nice. I would highly recommend a tour guide -- it saves a ton of time and you walk away knowing more about the history of NYC than you did coming in. Very professional and well worth the money! If I could give a 7 star rating, then I would! F Dale.

This is my 3rd time using Tours by Locals guides and they just keep getting better and better! This time we were in New York City and Mike showed us around from the Bronx (Botanical Gardens and Poe's cottage) to the Statue of Liberty and the 911 Memorial Site. We loved Mike, not just because he was so knowledgeable about all things New York, but because he was charming, kind and introduced us to a great restaurant-SaraBeth's on Amsterdam Ave.! Thanks for everything, Mike!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Carole and Tom,Thanks so much for your kind words. I had a terrific time showing you around the city. Please keep me in mind the next time you visit. Michael

Michael was perfect on time, very friendly and knew a lot of New York. In 4 hours we have seen the most important monuments of NY and my two sons of 17 and 16 were very pleased with his histories of NY. It was the perfect introduction to this wonderful city. Thanks
Mike was a great tour guide, knew everything there is to know about New York and lot's of stories. He is a real gentleman, took into consideration that one of our party could not walk too well, and thought of ways to get to places without too much walking. He gave us lots of tips for things for us to do on our own and to get discount tickets, etc. He was great, would recommend him to anyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Eve. It wa spleasure meting you and sharing the city with your party. I hope you'll keep me in mind when you visit NYC again.
Michael knows New York. He set up an incredible tour for us after I had given him a list of places we wanted to see. More importantly he is a really nice and friendly person. Thanks Michael !!!
