Hello. I’m Michael. A life long New Yorker, I have family roots in this great city that go back to the 1850s. Let me show you why New York is the greatest city in the entire world. No debate, you’ll be a believer by the time our visit is completed.

With more than a decade as a full-time professional guide I have conducted tours for many companies on boat, bus, foot, car, and subway. But my favorite is providing private tours for travelers who want an authentic New York experience with a local.

I offer tours to some of New York’s most iconic sites but also custom tailor tours to the places you want to see. Or perhaps you’d like me to surprise you with an improvised itinerary.

To experience New York, you need to move through the city like a local, and that is why my tours utilize our subway system to travel from place to place. In most cases we’ll meet at your hotel, no having to locate me on some random street corner. You’ll learn how to navigate our transportation system in addition to discovering the many wonders of our metropolis.

My previous career as a professional actor gives me excellent storytelling and communications skills and ensures that you will have a very entertaining time.

Let me help you fall in love with New York City.
