Absolutely Unforgettable! Ibrahima is a walking (driving) encyclopedia of New York knowledge and history. He is entertaining, friendly, courteous, and brilliant. If you're considering a private New York City tour, Ibrahima is your man! We could never have expected such amazing service. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the tour, especially the 9/11 Memorial.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sincere thanks for this beautiful review. I am honored and humbled. It was my pleasure and I hope we get to tour again. Thank you. Ibrahima

It was my 15-year old daughter's first trip to New York City, and she loves photography. We booked this experience for her to learn a bit more about the city and her new camera. Ibrahima is AMAZING. So smart, friendly, funny and FUN. He built Chloe's confidence with her camera and helped her learn photography lessons that will stick! Our 3 hours in and around Central Park flew by, and she left with photos she was proud of, and a new friend in the city. If you're traveling with kids/teens, this is THE GUY!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, and if I didn't say or write it before thank you very much. Your feedback is sincerely appreciated as well as the recommendations. It was my pleasure. You two were very kind, nice and fun to show around. I hope we get to do this again.

A great way to spend 3 hours getting the layout of this fantastic city and learning about the history and so much more. Ibrahima was a fantastic tour guide extremely knowledgeable, showed us so much and gave us lots of local tips on things to do and things to try. I would highly recommend Ibrahima if visiting New York anytime soon.

Ibrahima was exceptional!!! He was a wealth of information about NYC. We learned the history, dates and facts about the city, bridges, statues, buildings, street names, restaurants and churches. I was amazed by how knowledgeable he was! In addition, Ibrahima was very witty. I really enjoyed his sense of humor. He customized the tour for the ease and convenience of my 87 year old mother which we greatly appreciated! Also his vehicle was clean and comfortable. You won't be disappointed.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Oh wow thank you so much for a very nice feedback and review. I sincerely appreciate the recommendations. It was truly my pleasure to be your guide. All of your family was very kind and I’m glad you had a great time . Regards ibrahima

We booked Ibrahima to lead us around Central Park. He paced the tour well and we saw amazing sights. He helped both me and my kids take some fun photos at each and every stop. His photography knowledge and helpful attitude really helped us to capture some amazing moments. He was awesome at sharing tips and tricks we were able to use later, like looking at the light poles to figure out where we were in the park. I highly recommend Ibrahima!

We booked Ibrahima to give us a walking tour around the financial district, 9-11 memorial, and Dumbo. He had amazing insight into the events and history of the area. He kept my two kids interested and participating, which in a world of electronics is a tough thing to do. He helped us capture many images that we will cherish forever.

We booked Ibrahima to pick us up from the airport, give a tour, then drop us off at our hotel. He was so amazing. He was on time, took us to see amazing sights in Queens and Brooklyn. He got us to where we needed to be in Times Square perfectly. He was amazing and did a great job sharing local knowledge, including some great dining at Anna Maria Pizza.

Ibrahima was absolutely the "BEST" guide we could have possibly asked for. He had a treasure trove of knowledge about New York City and its architecture in his head and educated and entertained us during the entire tour. We made many stops for photos and walked through Grand Central. We were extremely impressed by the value provided for the tour charge. We would do it again in a New York minute.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sherri and Barry were such wonderful clients I would say yes to touring with them without second thought. I so appreciate your lovely feedback, it warms my heart and made me smile. I probably will read it again (a few times). I always try my best to make people have a memorable nyc experience and to read that you found the tour worth the time and money is sincerely encouraging for me. Thank you so much for choosing me and the recommendations. Oh yes for the Okie tour :)

When the tour was almost complete that we were in the middle of china town in New York City driver had an emergency and all 8 of us had to unload all 8 pieces of luggage and take an Uber to the airport.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Jacqueline I can never apologize enough for that unexpected and unfortunate situation. The driver’s son going to the emergency room was definitely not part of our plan, and I am glad we were able to sort things out (money and all) right there and thank you for being so understanding. If you see there was anything that could have been done better to make it a 5 stars Experience do not hesitate to share with me. I always try my best to ensure at least people’s expectations are met.

We HIGHLY recommend Ibrahima! Not only was he really knowledgeable about New York and photography, he was lots of fun. Our goal with the tour was to advance our amateur photography skills and get great shots of New York, which we accomplished thanks to his patient and easy to follow demonstrations. We wish the tour had been even longer, as we would have loved to spend more time with him. Well worth the investment and would suggest anyone coming to New York consider his tours.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Carin and your family for such a nice review, I also had a great time and wish the tour was longer. I am glad you found it useful and hope to see you when you return in NYC. Sincerely

Ok, Ibrahima was great. He is very knowledgeable about each bourogh and gives you fun facts, trivia and world facts. Overall, we had a great time. The leisurely walk abouts was exactly what we wanted. Ibrahima made me and my husband anniversary and my husband 1st visit to the city memorable. Also, traveling by subway was great.

Both Ibrahama and the driver Raul made this a great day. Lots of kudos all around to both of these gentlemen. Lots of fun with their dialog, it was like we had a comedy side show as well as a very educational tour delivery.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Matthew. I appreciate this review and will definitely share with my friend and colleague (driver) Raul. I am thankful for all that you shared with us as well and the recommendation the both of you gave me. A tour is only fun when all participants make it so or allow it to be so.

We had 2 ½ day tours of NYC with Ibrahima in September. He was fantastic! The knowledge and history of NYC that he shared with us was unbelievable. He was great with our 3 boys and I would thoroughly recommend you take a tour with Ibrahima…well worth the money! Being a photographer he knew all the good photo spots! We hope his wedding in October was all he dreamed it to be!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Kirsty and Family, Thank you for the review and beautiful words. I had a great time myself and am glad to read you all did. The wedding was simply fantastic ! I hope to see you all next time in NYC. Sincerely Ibrahima
