How can guests do more in less time?
Our itinerary is designed to allow you see the most in a single day. With a small group, we can navigate the city much faster going through routes not allowed by tour buses. Also a smaller group are able to go inside certain locations to discover NYC's hidden gems not accessible by larger groups.
Locals know that NYC public transit is both fast and comfortable. Our local guides can show you how to use this efficient transport system. After all taking the NYC subway is a NYC experience and an attraction in itself. See the subway art, personalities and stories.
Other tour companies started as transportation companies and then added tour guides to target the tourism market. We designed our company from the ground up as a tour company first and asked ourselves how to provide the best experience for our own friends and family if they visited NYC. The answer is a small group lead by a great, personable guide, and uses the fast, efficient NYC public transit.
Why are small groups better?
Size matters. Smaller group simply means a better tour. Our group is never larger than 15. You'll see more while waiting less.
We'll be able to go at a faster pace. Large groups are unweildy and always have stragglers. We have the least amount of time spend waiting compared to other tours. You'll easily hear the guide and be able to interact and ask questions. This means you'll see and learn more of NYC!
How are your guides the best?
We know your tour experience will depend in large part on the guide. Their knowledge, attentiveness, personality and entertainment value is what you're paying for. We only hire and train the best guides in the industry. Our guides have an excellent and consistent track record. The proof is the thousands of five star reviews received from guests on the various travel websites such as TripAdvisor and Viator.
Will I enjoy this tour?
This tour gives you an intense 1 day experience of New York City. You'll travel by subway, bus, foot and ferry like a native New Yorker. Your guide will enhance your experience with stories and information along the way.
This tour is great as a first day overview tour of NYC. You'll get a chance to see the main attractions of NYC and then based on your interests and the guide's recommendations you can decide how best to spend your subsequent days. Also this tour is great for those on a short trip to NYC.
How much walking is there on this tour?
There is 3 miles of walking at a moderate pace during the tour. You'll need to use stairs to get to and from the subway, so if mobility is an issue please arrange for a private tour.
There are outdoor sections of this tour such as the 9/11 Memorial, walking tour of Times Square, and lower Manhattan, so please dress appropriately.
Does the tour happen during the rain or snow?
We only cancel the tour during extreme weather conditions. Otherwise the tour goes on. Please do check the weather report and be prepared for the weather.
What happens if I am late and miss the group?
It is important to arrive at the tour starting location at least 10-15 minutes prior to the start time, as we do start the tour promptly. It would be unfair for the others if we need to wait for those that are late.
However, we do understand that sometimes unforeseen things happen to delay your arrive. We will make every effort to catch you up to the tour or provide another tour date if possible. But we cannot offer refunds for this situation or guarantee that you will meet up with the group.
What is your cancellation, rescheduling, refund policy?
You can cancel a tour up to 3 days prior to your tour date without penalty and receive a full refund. Also prior to 3 days of your tour date, you can reschedule your tour without penalty.
Since we keep the group size small, tour spots are limited. Consequently if you cancel or reschedule within 3 days of your tour date, we won't be able to fill your spots.
