“Greg was fantastic! He took us to Columbia University and Hamilton's home as well as landmarks in Harlem such as the Apollo Theater. He taught us about the history of Harlem and tidbits about the area. We got to see where Sully landed the plane on the Hudson as well as the tomb of Ulysses S. Grant. Greg's pace was perfect and the information appropriate for our group. It was perfect! I highly recommend this tour - especially if you are fans of Hamilton!”

“Fabrice provided a terrific tour of lower Manhattan. Very informative and fun. Historical facts, cultural facts, and fun facts. It was a great private tour for my wife and me on our anniversary. I highly recommend Real NY Tours, and will be doing another in Harlem asap. We live in NJ and spend a lot of time in NYC, but still learned so much and enhanced our connection to the city.”
