Richard guided my 15-year-old grandson and me through the most intensive and exhaustive exploration of New York City possible within the day available for this excursion. He selected the best routes, and the most efficient transports, to see and explore the major landmarks in this huge city. His knowledge of the "big city" is comprehensive -- and, in summary, I, as a well-travelled 72-year-old lawyer, do not believe there could possibly be a better guide through New York City than Richard.

Richard was very knowledgable about the areas we toured. He was also flexible enough to wander into areas of interest and discover new things together. We had a great time with Richard.

Richard B. was our guide and he was excellent. We had a group of 6 with different ideas and needs and he was able to accommodate all of us to make it an exceptional NYC experience. We saw everything on our list and more! Richard was so fun and informative, he's the perfect guide. I highly recommend him to anyone visiting NYC for the first time, or for those who have been before and want a personal tour with someone who has in depth knowledge of the city.

Richard was knowledgeable, friendly and informative. You could tell he truly wanted us to have a good time. We were able to see things and learn things that we never would have stumbled across on our own. Our tour of three consisted of a 72 year old, 46 year old and 17 year old and we all had a great time!

Richard is amazing. He MADE our trip. With two 7-year-old grandchildren who are filled with energy and enthusiasm, I especially appreciated Richard's expertise in communicating with children, his kind and patient manner, and his knowledge about many of New York's sights. I'm so happy that I hired him. If we head back this way, the first thing on my to-do list will be to reach out to Richard and hope he's available to be with us again. Gai

Richard was very knowledgeable about our tour. We were able to edit in mid tour based on immediate needs with the baby and our guide did a tremendous job accommodating our needs. Even though we did more than one reset, Richard was able to adapt and his knowledge and commentary was exactly what we wanted. We would recommend this guide to anyone. Thanks Richard.

Richard did a wonderful job of planning our tour since we told him we wanted to "see as much as we could with 4 kids!" He did not disappoint! He was flexible when needed, but kept us on track as we saw all the sights we requested plus so much more.

Richard is a terrific guide: very knowledgeable, professional and attentive to all our questions. We learned a lot about Harlem and can now more thoughtfully appreciate its history. Thanks to Richard, we can see what an amazing neighborhood it is. We will definitely book another tour with him!

Richard was wonderful. He was very flexible and personable with me and my eleven and thirteen year old. He engaged the kids very well as well as myself. Richard paid attention to our comfort and interest levels and was able to switch gears as needed. We definitely would recommend him and use him again for any New York tours. Our tour was between 7-8 hours and we highlighted 9/11, Battery Park, Wall Street, Chinatown, Grand Central Station, The MET and Central Park as well as learning the subway system.
