My husband and I were in New York City for only 2 days and we were thrilled to have the opportunity to have Kennedy show us around. He was pleasant, informative, and funny. We honestly had a great time! Not only did we get tons of pictures, but Kennedy showed us how to master the subway system and suggested other sights to see. So if you are considering booking this tour you will not be disappointed! It is truly the way to begin your New York experience!
Marc was amazing. Even with the rain (and there was a lot of rain toward the end), it was great fun. The pictures are amazingly good too!
this tour is awesome!! Marcs knowledge of NYC and its subway system is exactly what you need for a hassle free holiday. Do this tour early in your holiday so u get a feel for the city and the locations. The pics i received from Marc are simply outstanding he took shots of us on the Brooklyn bridge (which was very busy) but made it look like we were the only ones there,these fotos will be treasured for a long time such a great keep sake! we did the 2 hour tour from 8-10 am and i received around 145 pics. this tour is a must to do people you will not be disappointed.
Excellent, do it.
Kennedy provided us with an excellent collection of photos. Something you can't achieve when there is just the two of you. We took the early morning tour which appeared to be the best time, this mainly being due to absence of people in Time Square and utilising the sub way. Kennedy's pace is quick, in order that you visit all the available sites. He is also cursed with being tall and appears to have legs longer than most humans.
All in all, excellent well worth just wish the service was available in other city's.
Regrets, not booking a longer tour.
This tour was amazing. Marc Samuels is a great guide and photographer! You will not be disappointed with this tour! :)
Kennedy our guide/photographer was FAB, spent a great first morning in New York with him.
Thank you Kennedy! He took us to so many great landmarks and gave an invaluable lesson about using the subway. He put us at ease immediately and off we went, he was a mine of useful information about the city which he obviously loved. We had a wonderful time with him and we were so pleased with the results - I can recommend this tour without reservation.
I would recommend this tour. The tour guide knows all the best photo spots and the pictures turned out great. Normally when we go on holidays we come back with very few pictures of the two of us together so it's great having so many pictures of the two of us for once. We got engaged while we were there so it makes it all the more special having these photos as memories for years to come.
Awesome experience with some excellent quality pictures and knowledge from our fantastic tour guide Kennedy. Really fun pictures and we covered a lot of 'ground' on the tour to get the most out of it.
This was an excellent one of our top tours. The day started with rains, he rescheduled his agenda, when it got dried, took us on foot seeing things we wouldnt see from a limo, and very patient and caring considering we're 5 girls. All pictures were awesome, still talk about them... Big thanks!!!!
Amazing tour with Kennedy! Fun and exciting. A bit of walking but worth it. We enjoyed this day a lot and we are so happy to have pictures together from our beautiful honeymoon.
This was our first trip to New York and doing this tour with Marc was one of the best tours that we had done. Marc was great with his knowledge of the city, and he was even kind enough to show us how to work the subway system. This was defiantly the highlight of our experience in New York and we recommend it to everyone. Thanks again Marc.
If you want a tour that is informative yet fun, exhausting.....but worth it ( you do walk a fair bit!) then look no further.
This tour has all the highlights of New york but with it comes amazing pictures of the two of us instead of one of us or both of us taken by someone passing by.
All Credit goes to our guide and photographer Marc.
Wow what can i say bang straight into the zone from the first picture walking and talking then stopping at the right time standing in the middle of the ROAD in Times Square liked we owned the place ..... great fun........ the Naked Cowboy....... lol amusing to say the least!
The subway made to look easy, Central Park so romantic, Brooklyn Bridge beautiful and somehow Marc would take the picture so it looked like we were the only ones there....... believe me it was busy that day. Also we were lucky to have had amazing weather that day too.
The Subway explained and taken care of in the space of the 2 hr trip that we had booked with Marc and from that moment on used the subway for the rest of the our holiday so much more easier than walking.
I would recommend this trip to everyone. You see New York in a different light you gain knowledge of the areas where to eat and shop but from the hands of a local which is the best way to learn me thinks......but to finish off the pictures wow so many didn't expect so many in the 2 hrs we were there and a real surprise when we sat down in our hotel to look at them.
one word AMAZING.
Marc, Thanks so much for making our holiday that much more special. Great memories thanks once again
Dawn and Dave!
On the morning of our tour it was pouring with rain. Kennedy, our tour guide/photographer rang us and suggested putting the meet time back to allow the weather to improve, great idea. We thoroughly enjoyed the three hour tour with Kennedy and felt we got a lot out of it, he even helped us master the Subway system. The photos were emailed to us the same day and are brilliant. Definitely recommend this tour.
This was the absolutely the best thing we did on out trip!!! We had a great time with Kennedy - our photographer. He was right on time and was very personable and knowledgeable about all things New York. We received over 100 pictures via email within a couple of days and they are all great. One of my friends on Facebook wanted to know how we got such professional looking photos - of course they were professional photos, and now all of my friends want to plan a trip to NYC just to do this tour. I cannot say enough good thing:. great time, pictures, value for the money, etc.
My Girlfriend and I took this trip with Marc. Marc was extremely knowledgeable about almost any subject we could bring up about the city. Marc had no issues adjusting our trip to areas we wanted to see during the tour, and did a fantastic job suggesting areas for us to visit after the trip. Marc provided us with insight on using the subway to get back to our hotel, and it was all around a great experience. The pictures we got with Marc will last a lifetime, and the trip was worth every penny. I high recommend Marc for any trip to NYC.
This tour is a must . Our photographer was spot on with his knowledge of New York and where to take great shots . Photos turned out great
Absolutely fantastic tour!!!!! A must do for anyone visitng New York for the first time and a should do for anyone else, My wife and I always have photos of each other or the odd photo taken by a stranger of the two of us so we decided on this trip we would go for this tour so that we had photos of the two of us, as well as that it turned out to be a fabulous way of getting to know our way around and seeing some of the main sites. Learning the use of the subway is extremely useful and our tour guide Marc was superb combining interesting knowledge of the area while working the tour to our specific needs and getting as much in as possible in the three hours. Im yet to find a Viator tour I can give less than full stars and have now booked another 5 tours for a trip to China on the back of this trip.
This was an amazing opportunity to see the city and the photos were a great addition to the experience!
Marc was very personable and made the tour much more than a tour or photography session. His stories, insight and recommendations were very in-tune to us and helpful as we continued our trip to NYC after the tour. Everything flowed perfectly and Marc was great at capturing the "perfect shots" of the areas we visited. Visiting Central Park, 5th Avenue, the Brooklyn Bridge and SoHo provided us with a great overview of the city and allowed us to experience what each place added to the city.
We highly recommend this to anyone who is considering a way to see the city, have fun, and bring home wonderful memories!!!
Absolutely loved this tour. Not only was the tour amazing but with my man proposing, we now have some of the best memories of a lifetime. Loved our photographer. Even in pouring rain he didn't cancel and our photos are perfect. Strongly recommend this
Overall my husband and I would agree that this was a very good and worthwhile activity to spend our money on. We are not normally "tour" kind of people, but it was so great to arrive in NY and immediately get the lay of the land from a local. Marc gave us a lot of interesting information that was super helpful and the photos were so great! He took so many pictures of us all over NY and how else could we ever have captured these shots? (We definitely couldn't have). I highly recommend taking this photo/walking tour and I would also recommend taking it on your first or second day if possible to get the maximum benefit.
This was a great tour, got brilliant photographs. Would recommend anyone to do this Photography walking tour. We did it at 8am, it was the best time to do it as it was a lot quieter and managed to get round a lot quicker. Our guide Kennedy was brillliant and gave us a lot of information about all the landmarks. We got our photographs email to us, it was so easy to download them.
OMG!! Kennedy was such an amazing tour guide and even better photographer! We loved our pictures and were even more excited that it snowed the day of so the pictures were even more beautiful!! I have told so many people about this and think it was such an awesome experience. I love that we told Kennedy that this was our honeymoon we never had and were celebrating our anniversary and he made it that much more special!!! My husband is not a fan of taking pictures but Kennedy made it fun for both of us. I hope one day we can do this again!! Thank you Kennedy!!!!
