“Fabrice was our tour guide and he was amazing! It was like walking around the city with our own personal historian. Fabrice designed a tour for us that stayed away from large crowds, which I hate, and the everyday tourist attractions. We walked for 3 hours through uptown and Central Park and had the most wonderful time! Fabrice took the time to teach us how to use the subway and gave us a map of where we had visited and where we should still go. On his recommendation we visited Brooklyn, the Chelsea market and returned to grand central terminal and fifth avenue on our own and loved it. I HIGHLY recommend Real New York tours and thank them for making our trip to New York unforgettable!”
“We had the midtown tour of 3,5 hrs with Luke. It was the best day of out whole visit. We covered so much and Luke has so many interesting stories about every corner. It is an adventure, not just a tour. He showed us places where we would not have never ended up on our own or in a regular tourist tour. Luke is such a good guide. Takes time and interest so that you feel very comfortable,safe and welcome. Also the teenagers of our family said that the tour was the best experience of our NY trip. I highly recommend their tours if you want a personal, interesting, adventurous and informative insight to the diverse and exciting city of NY.”
