NYC in Quarantine

May, 2020 To All Our Friends, We hope you are safe and well. As you know NYC has been hit hard by Covid 19 and we are on lockdown. It has been a tough time for New Yorkers, but our strength and resilience as always will get us through. We will be back with more love, energy, heart and soul and of course more stories to share with you all. We hope to be back to touring soon and know that we will be waiting for you with open arms. With the genuine, no non-sense, back slapping welcome that only a New Yorker can give. We are also posting Real New York Stories every week on our Facebook page. Here is a good one with our kids! Much Love, Luke and Amber

“Real New York Tours was recommended to me by a colleague and it did not disappoint. What a great way to gain an understanding of the city and what it might be like to have lived in it. Myself and others in the group who had been to NYC before learned things we never knew. I would recommend this as a great tour option, especially to do in the first few days of being in NYC.”

"An awesome decision to book them. We were told by numerous folks to do the hop on hop off buses. Trey, our host, put it best: that's an aquarium, this is scuba diving. We had a little bit of an adventure on the subway from Greenwich Village to Central Park on the 42nd St stop. Ask Trey for the story, glad to be part of Real New York Tours lore.”
