Private New York City tours are our business. Our private tours of New York are highly personalized, based on your schedule, pace and sights you want to see. We do not impose our schedule on you. We do not impose a pre-established "one size fits all" itinerary. On our private tours of New York, we do not drop you on your own at sights around the city or make you wait until the next tour bus comes. We do not drop you off with a bus load of other tourists and require you to wander through the crowded streets and tour sights following a guide with an umbrella in the air. On our private tours of New York City, there is no time wasted at sights in which you have no interest; no time wasted waiting for the next bus to come; and no risk of following the wrong umbrella! On our private New York tours, you do not struggle with a whole crowd of other tourists competing for your guide's attention or to ask your guide questions or for information. Your personal and private New York City tour with us will be focused solely on you; your wishes, needs and desires. Your personal and private New York tour will be custom designed just for you and in consultation with you.
Family History - Our CFO (Chief Family Officer), Scott, has always been proud of the city his family immigrated to in 1887. Over the years, he would take great pleasure in showing out-of-town guests and business colleagues both the well-known and off-the-beaten-path sights of the city.
In his previous career as a health care professional, Scott worked in two areas heavily visited by tourists – Madison Square Park (Flat Iron Building) and Herald Square (Empire State Building / Macy's). He would watch the New York City tour buses in operation and think, “What a horrible way to see the city." So, he got his Sightseeing Guide License and began providing private New York City tours just on the weekends. It all started out as more of a hobby. Well word of his private New York City tours spread and the hobby grew into a business.
Who We Are - Family in New York is not part of a large corporation with operations (or headquarters) in other cities of the United States or around the world. We do not have a big corporate structure with a board of directors or stock holders whom we are required to please before our customers. We are not out-of-work actors, dancers or musicians who are in New York hoping to be discovered. We are not trying to fit in tours between auditions or until we land our preferred job.
Who are we? We are a proud "mom and pop" operation, six of us now, offering private New York tours. We are established New Yorkers with roots that run deep in this city. We are tours guides by choice and not because we couldn't find anything else to do. This is our chosen profession and we love it!
