New York Tour Reviews

Great Way to Explore the City

It was my adult daughter's first time in NYC and while I know the City, I thought a tour might be a good way to orient her to the City. It was fun, educational and helped us know how to move around the City. Julia is a true New Yorker who knows, the institutions, history and culture of this great City. She is responsive to requests and had great ideas of how to share the City's delights and treasures. I highly recommend her as a tour guide.

Thank you! It was a pleasure to meet you both!

An excellent time!

We had a great time with Julia! Her tour was fun, lively, informative and we really felt the benefit of being shown round Central Park by a local.

My tour will be the sampler of the best of New York City in one day. I will guide us through the best-of-the-best with lots of photo ops included. I will also include pop-culture moments you will likely know-and-love from TV-and-movies like Friends, Enchanted, Spider-Man, King-Kong, I Am Legend, Ghostbusters, James and the Giant Peach, Godzilla, SATC, and many more... I can also be flexible and, where possible, add a destination - provided it does not require waiting in a long queue.
