We did a two-day tour with Remo, and it was hands-down the best tour we have taken so far. Remo's subway and walking tour was exactly how we wanted to see the city. We stopped at various local spots and got to partake in all of the local sights, sounds and tastes. He also recommended various eateries that we visited later and enjoyed thoroughly. Remo has limitless energy and a fantastic sense of humor. Thank you Remo, for making our trip so enjoyable.

He walked me around New York and was full of knowledge and facts and you could tell he really enjoyed doing this. He was punctual, polite, very considerate, and he made sure I saw all that was on my list, and then even more. If I ever return, I would definitely use him again. I highly recommend him for a tour guide in New York.

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!

Remo was fantastic! The weather was bad and he worked so very hard to show us things that kept us warm and dry as much as possible and use our limited time as effectively as possible! Then, when the ferry canceled due to weather, he helped guide us through the rescheduling process with ease. Our group cannot recommend him enough. All were happy to get his business card for future trips!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: What a great group you were, Jenny. The weather conditions were as adverse as I have seen them except for Hurricane Sandy!!! Good humor and a 'can do' spirit helps make anything happen!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed the two days we spent with guide, Remo, in NYC. He was professional, knowledgeable, engaging, personable, and sensitive to our wishes. With Remo we saw not just the usual tourist attractions, but he gave us a flavor of some of the different neighborhoods of the city as well. On a scale of one to ten, we rate Remo a TEN! He earns our highest recommendation. Don & Lavonne Mendel

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Don and Lavonne were an absolute JOY to take around NYC. They were interested in looking deeply into the fabric of this city; what makes it work and what hampers the City. What a pleasure to share with them deeper insights into New York City!

I do hope that you come again and next time we can design a Custom Tour to add another hour or two to account for drink and eat stops!

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.

Having found the courage to view the site of 9/11 I now have peace. Remo was informative and entertaining. He was mindful of physical needs in pace. He showed reverence for the tribute that is evident in the recovery. I learned so much about a variety of topics; I didn't know there was so much more to see in Lower Manhattan. Can't say enough good about the experience from start to finish. Booking - a breeze. Very professional agency. I plan to return with friends! Bravo!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It is always so special to do the guiding and emotional journey at Ground Zero... I am blessed to be trusted to take this walk.

Remo is awesome. I had a 12hr layover at JFK and decided to come out and tour around the city. Of course, I considered doing this on my own -- but I am SO glad that I decided to hire a guide! Remo was the perfect mix of professional & knowledgeable as well as friendly and fun. This was especially important to me traveling as a woman on my own. We saw the major sites that I had on my 'wish list', wandering along the local routes with ease. It was whirlwind and worth every penny. Highly recommend Remo :-)

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.

He met me at my hotel which was very convenient & he was on time. He's very kind & made sure I was okay with everything. He took me to midtown & scheduled cool places we were able to visit within the limited time. He told me histories related to each location we went to (very interesting!). I really appreciate him for taking pictures of me. It wasn't easy that day because it was extremely freezing, but he was willing to take off his gloves and take a picture for me. Thank you for showing me around Remo!

Takes a while to get to the places relevant to Bon Jovi so you need to allow the time for Remo to battle the NYC traffic to get you there safely. He even had a few surprises along the way which was super fun. Thanks Remo for such a great day. One I wont forget for a very long time.

We are Spanish Bon Jovi fans, so when I was planning our trip to New York, I never thought that anybody would make a tour about Bon Jovi. Was a great discovery find Toursbylocals and Remo. First He came to pick us to Central Park with his white car and the Denmark flag. He is very funny and polite. For us was very exciting to be in all places where Jon lived, and think that in these he had been before (going to the school, going to play music, playing in the street...) Thanks Remo. really amazing!

Remo is a very knowledgeable, friendly and fun tour guide, we were in NY for 5 days and took his tour on the first day. We explored the areas and neighbourhoods of interest to us, got to grips with the subway and found cool places to eat, all thanks to Remo who always had a plan B to make things happen fo us. As a result of this we more than maximised our remaining 4 days and had an excellent time in New York City

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure doing this tour... I find that having a basic plan is essential but then being flexible and adjust to the wishes of my guests is fundamental to having a truly memorable day. One day while leading a walking tour, we encountered a small family out for a walk. As always, I greet people and, if it seems fitting, introduce my guests. In this case, they invited us to see their place; including their lovely roof garden. A bonus and experience my guests were thankful to have!

Walking down the streets through Midtown with Remo was by far one of my most memorable moments while in NYC. All the stories and hidden treasures he knows about exceed expectations. While we could have opted to take the subway to get to other places, I think we had too much fun just walking around - sightseeing and people watching. I would definitely do this tour again. I recommend spring time too because that's when all the flowers and trees are blooming and it was beautiful!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Livia. There is nothing like walking on the sidewalks of New York City. There is so much to show and tell around every corner. I feel badly for visitors trying to enjoy it all on their own; so much that when I have a bit of time I stop and give them a story or two! I hope all reading this will give at least one of my tours a try. No one regrets it and now with the weather lovely, a guided walk will be your vacation's "icing on the cake".

Thanks to Remo we got an unbelievable first impression of NY. Within 5 hours we visited not only the wanted places but got informations and saw more than we could have seen alone in one week. Remo is very polite, lovely and funny. We will recommend him all over in Switzerland after our return. Gabriela + Monika

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Gabriella. You and your mom were great to be with. To be a part of a family travel experience gives me such joy because these are special days of family bonding. I look forward to more families booking me.

Remo delivered a fantastic tour of the REAL New York. A very friendly and knowledgable guide. We saw loads in 5 hours that we would never have seen in our short stay. Met us promptly from the ship and dropped us at our hotel. Had a fantastic second day exploring New York on our own following several useful tips from Remo. Yes we had our hot-dog and our Central Park carraige ride. Check our Remo's tours if you want to see New York. Thanks Remo for a great time & also the momentos of New York you gave us.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a real pleasure showing you and your husband New York City. It leaves me with deep satisfaction when I discover that I had made someone's day special and helped make their next day in New York a better experience than it might otherwise have been.

Wow..what a day. Remo is lovely. He's really knowledgable and will do pretty much what you want him to do... We added two or three things to our tour as we were going along and nothing was too much trouble.we ended up turning a four hour trip into an eighth our trip.oops! He had thought of everything and it was so refreshing not to be bearded along in a preset tour.We saw the real sights and had interesting narration along the way. I wanted a tour to New Jersey fit for a Bon Jovi fan. I got that and more

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It truly was a great day. We listened to Jon's CD 'Have a Nice Day' and saw tons of Bon Jovi locations. These were great guests as are all Bon Jovi fans. It is true that you can tell the persona of someone by not only te people they hang with but also the performers they value! - Remo

We took the bonjovi tour. This tour was the highlight of my trip. Remo was very knowledgeable and helpful. He went out of his way for us. For example after tour he took us to the shoe place my son wanted to go. Remo also made sure we were comfortable throughout the tour with water, bonjovi music,pictures etc. I spread the word throughout my friends in the jovi club. This tour was amazing!! Any bonjovi fan should consider this tour. In fact if your just going to NY you should consider Remo for a guide

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Jennifer... Thanks for your comments. They are very encouraging for me! And I am so happy you and Tyree had a nice time. Pls say "hi" to Tyree for me. You have raised a fine son. All the best, Remo

Had a great time on this tour. Remo was a great guide, very friendly & helpful. A lot of Bon Jovi related sites covered. I definately couldn't have done all this on my own! Even saw Jon in his driveway! Thanks Remo for your help. We all really enjoyed the day. Lots of great memories. Thoroughly recommend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so very much for the comment, Nicole. Pls greet your family for me! - Remo

Remo did a great job in adapting to somewhat difficult circumstances. It rained hard for almost all of the day of our "walking tour". Remo adapted by driving a lot of the way, but still made it a most enjoyable tour in spite of the weather. Excellent Job

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: We adapt as needed. The key thing is that our guests leave having experienced what we promised! Thanks for the nice comment, John

Remo was incredibly knowledgable and helpful! He did a fantastic job of answering nearly every question we had about NYC, & was especially knowledgable about history. He showed us "off the beaten track" sites we never would have otherwise seen. Remo has great insight into Ground Zero, filling us in on facts we would have otherwise never known. Our family totally recommends Remo as an extremely knowledgable NYC guide, and purveyer of interesting history & fun ideas.

Remo is outstanding! It's obvious that he loves New York and its people. Touring Manhattan by subway and walking with Remo is very special. He is not your typical guide who can only point out the next building you see or regurgitate some trivial fact; instead Remo gives you a feeling for who the people in those neighborhoods and the history. Moreover, Remo's discussion of his personal life experiences in NYC added to our respect of him and the city. We will use Remo again for our next tour in NYC.

This tour was FANtastic! I have nothing but positive comments to say about the whole experience. Our guide, Remo picked us up promptly at 2pm at our hotel in Manhattan in a nice, clean Toyota Camry. We felt completely at ease and safe with him driving us from Manhattan to various towns in New Jersey. He was very accommodating and helpful in taking us to see whatever sites we wished. He was knowledgeable of the area and offered lots of information. I highly recommend Remo for your next tour!! Thanks

Excellent tour. Remo is very knowledgable about the area. Took it slow and easy for my husband & father in law, and the stop at the bakery was outstanding. We all really enjoyed it.
