Traveler Reviews of Private Tours in New-York-City by Tour Guide Jared G. (Guide #8829)

Donna Ornstein


Tour: #412859, Lower East Side and Colonial New York and the World Trade Center, New York City, New York, United States    view tour
Date: Sep 24/18

Jared was very accommodating with our itinerary, meeting us at the Neue Gallerie and then accompanying us by Metro to our start point. During the 3 1/2 hour walking tour, he gave thorough descriptions of the history of the areas in the Lower East Side, the buildings and the lives experienced by the immigrants who came to the area in waves over the decades. He was considerate of our walking abilities and our timetable. Also, he was fun to be with and had us laughing. We highly recommend Jared!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: :D Thank you! Happy Memories.

"Flexible" Mr. Jared, Thank you again for such an outstanding tour. You made it very specific for our young music group. This was truly the best tour for our first time in New York. Take care from your new Indiana family! Sincerely, Boom Squad, Inc. Evansville, IN

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: : ) I'll never forget your group! We went to Lincoln Center, Strawberry Fields, saw the American Museum of Natural History, Julliard, Carmegie Hall, Times Square, Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, and visited the World Trade Center 9/11 Memorial.

Tour: #412804, Marvelous Manhattan! - A Private Tour for Monica Holloway's Group, August 24th 2018, New York City, New York, United States    view tour
Date: Aug 24/18

Jared was fantastic. We cannot thank you enough for the wonderful tour. No one can believe we got to see so much in four hours! Your willingness to customize a tour for the places we wanted to see was greatly appreciated. You made visiting the BIG APPLE so much fun. The tour was the highlight of the trip! Thanks again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It is always my goal that my tours are the highlight of my guests' visit to NYC. It is a marvelous place, so I have a lot of competition! Your review means a lot to me. I try to provide value by making the sights come alive with details, the best views, and true stories. Being flexible is important, too, since you are on vacation and there were three generations on our tour. Thank you for sharing your experience with the Tours by Locals community.

Gregory Alexander

Tour: #412859, Alexander Hamilton's New York City, New York City, New York, United States    view tour
Date: Aug 1/18

We enjoyed the customized tour Jared put together for us. We had a limited amount of time and wanted to focus on Alexander Hamilton's presence in New York and historically significant sites relating to the American Revolution. New York sacrificed many locations contributing to America"s history in the interest of real estate development. Jared knew the "whos, wheres and whens" of many of these places which the unguided tourist would more than likely miss. We highly recommend Jared.

Tour: Columbia Some Manhattan and NYU, New York City, New York, United States
Date: Jul 26/18

Jared is a by far the best tour guide I have ever had. He is very prompt when replying to my messages. He is on time, and keeps track of time perfectly. We were a big group — 40 people! He kept us all together and moved us around fast. I really like how he keeps track of time down to the minutes, such as "we will have a bathroom break in 26 minutes". Jared is also a very knowledgeable tour guide. He knows a lot about NYC and Columbia. He has tailored the tour for our group. Thank you from the 40 of us!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much! :) I am not always down-to-the-minute. Just educated guessing, and I like featuring odd numbers as an attention-getting device, which is important when dealing with students. I really enjoyed their engagement and thoughtful questions. Positively memorable!

Jenny Da Luz


Tour: #412859, 21stJune2018-JennyDaLuzFamily-Statue of Liberty, Lower Manhattan and Midtown, New York City, New York, United States    view tour
Date: Jun 21/18

Jared was great from beginning to end. From planning the private tour as per our requirements to delivering the services as booked without a single problem. Thank you Jared for your patience and high standards!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your business and kind review! I have toured professionally for almost thirteen years (as of mid 2018), and I won't forget this tour. We had a great day, experiencing: Statue of Liberty, 9/11 Memorial; the Brooklyn Bridge; seeing the Empire State Building; lunch at a favorite local NYC spot; Empire Statue Building Observation Deck (using the express pass saved us hours); Central Park; Rockefeller Center; Grand Central; Times Square; and back to hotel. Memorable for 1st time visitors.
