Derek was amazing! He was very knowledgeable and exceptionally good with my two granddaughters. He answered all of their questions in a level they could understand. He is a very patient person, and was able to make adjustments along the way if we wanted to either spend more or less time at a specific location. Well worth the money!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Mary! I enjoyed meeting you and your family. As with all my tours, I always adjust to what's appropriate to you and what you'd like to do and experience.

Had a most fascinating tour of NY with Derek. He listened to our wishes and tailored our tour around these. Derek knew lots of interesting facts about the City as well as giving us tips on where to eat and drink. It was definitely worth paying extra for a driver as we were able to see far more of the City. Thanks to Derek for an interesting day out! Michelle, Alistair, Rebecca, Kyle and Natasha

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Michelle! It was a pleasure to meet you all and tour with you all around the always fascinating NYC!

Derek was a true professional. He customized a tour for myself and family. Stellar service, competent, professional, accommodating, friendly and knowledgeable. Best highlight of our trip. Derek shuttled us through Lower, Mid-town and Upper Manhattan explaining several different tourist attractions that we chose. We cannot believe how much of NY we were able to see thanks to Derek. We very much appreciate Derek and his commitment to excellence. You won't be disappointed.

Great NY tour with Derek yesterday! As first time New York international visitors, we appreciated Derek's local knowledge and his friendly manner. Nothing was too much trouble, from picking us up with luggage (lots of it!) from our airport hotel, to dropping us at our Manhattan apartment, and the four hours covering all the key attractions in between, we thoroughly enjoyed our day and thoroughly recommend this tour! Thanks, Derek from the New Zealanders!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Ann -- it was my pleasure to show you guys around New York! I hope the rest of your traveling is pleasureable and productive!
