      Great off the beaten track day in NYC
      We had a full day of guiding with Mei in NYC. Been to Manhattan a lot and we wanted to see a different side of New York. She met us in Harlem and from there took us in her car to Fort Tyron then to Williamsburg. All in all very good.

      Great tour with Maurita, would highly recommend.
      We had a great walking tour with Maurita on the afternoon of the day we arrived. It was a great way to familiarise ourselves with the city and have the opportunity to ask a local for any tips or advice we needed. Maurita contacted us before the tour and asked if we had any specific requests or interests and was flexible on the day. Would highly recommend it.

      NYC walking tour with Olga
      Olga was absolutely delightful. She put so much care and thought into planning the route for my 3 hour personalised walking tour of NYC. It was the highlight of my work trip and I never would've learnt so much about the city, it's architecture and found little hidden gems otherwise. Highly recommend!

      Highly Recommend the Private Personalized Tour
      Edward was amazing! We booked an 8 hour private tour and got to visit all the sites on our list. Edward was a wealth of knowledge and a native New Yorker who knew the secret ins and outs of the city. With him as our guide we traveled via subway and bus and had a fantastic time. Thanks Edward for everything!

      The best of New York
      Our tour guide Jason was very accomodating, engaging, and knowledgeable. He was a great resource that made the most of our trip to New York. I would highly recommend him.

      Make sure you got your walking shoes on ….
      This guided tour was great. Bill showed us what we wanted to see and a lot of things we didn’t know we needed do see. One thing though - didn’t think that there would be as much walking (knew there would be some, but not the 10+ klm), and it was so very cool that he changed his plans and we ended up at World Trade Centre. Muchly appreciated ….

      Great day seeing NY
      Maurita of City unscripted showed us New York south of 23rd West street. She has been an excellent guide, very knowledgable of the local areas, Wall Street area, China Town, little Italy, Brooklyn Bridge, Greenwich, West Village. We truly enjoyed her company and historic knowledge. Highly recommended.

      Great personalized tour
      I gave a list of places to our guide and he listened and hit them all for us. It's a great option if you don't mind walking a lot.

      Great Nightlife tour!
      Maurita was a wonderful and knowledgeable guide. She knows the City well. We had fun going to many great bars and clubs. She took us to many places we would not have found. She also listened to our desires and found us some great Jazz Bands. This tour is well worth it!

      Walking tour of New York.
      Maurita, took us on a wonderful 8hr walking tour of New York City. It didn't get off to a good start as she was late due to the vagaries of New York trains but she soon warmed up. She took the trouble to take 10 minutes at our hotel with us to plan what we would particularly like to see and then modified her planned route accordingly. We took the subway to Battery Park at the south tip of Manhattan and then walked from there to Wall Street, the World Trade Center memorial, the Brooklyn Bridge, NYPD 1 Police Precinct, Chinatown for lunch, Little Italy and Greenwich Village for a cocktail. She then pointed us in the right direction to visit the Empire State Building on our own and took her leave at 7pm. She was very knowledgeable about the various site and of NY in general and we all greatly enjoyed the tour.

      New York is an amazing city yet very expensive and not is to navigate if you use a walker.
      Plan your visit when the UN isn't having an event because accommodation go up 300%. We paid $1700.00 for 4 nights at a Springfield Suites hotel. Room was clean but very quiet and cramped. Breakfast and daily happy hour included. We had a special room rate others paid $6000.00 for 5 days. Traffic was horrible streets blocked off for diplomatic vehicles. Don't bother dinning at Tavern on the Green service and food very under whelping. A Mr. Matt heard our group complaints but didn't offer anything but hearing our voice. For over $400.00 go else where. Left and Uber drivers amazing. If you have a group of 3 cheaper to hire a driver who will take you to all the sites, stop for lunch and take you to photo vista's that are amazing. Starr Steakhouse worth $$. Staff was amazing as well as the fabulous prime steaks and sides. New York is a walkable city and not easy if your using a walker. So plan ahead.

      Ed was a wonderful tour guide and a pleasure to talk to
      I loved seeing Dyker heights and the view from the Brooklyn Bridge toward Manhattan. I have been to NYC many times but this was a completely new experience

      Maurita is the best!
      Maurita was fantastic! She guided our family of 4 - 2 adults and 2 kids under the age of 12, through local eateries with a touch of history. The history and culture part was interesting enough for the adults and not too boring for the kids. Which is a definite win. The kids thought they were just eating their way through the city but little did they know they were learning some historical tidbits, Thats a definite win in my book. Highly recommend Maurita. She was a fantastic guide :)

      Bucket List !!
      Mindy Cohen was a fabulous guide. Very knowledgeable, humorous, and patient (at times I’m sure she felt as though she was herding cats!). There is no way we could have seen all the wonderful sites of New York City on our own. Thank you!, Chuck and Ann W., and our service dog, Sammy.
