This tour was one of the highlights of our NYC trip. We did the 3 hour morning tour a few days before Christmas. It was our first ever trip to New York. Marc was AWESOME! He made the tour really fun with interesting facts about the spots we visited and joked around with us quite a bit. He also gave great advice on places we might want to spend Christmas day. He really knows his city and every tip he gave us about restaurants and neighborhoods was spot on. The photos he took of us are amazing! There are so many I am going to frame and put up. They are very high resolution so there's a couple we're going to blow up poster size. Marc also taught us how to use the subway, which we were really intimidated by at first. After the tour we used the subway several times a day for the rest of our two week stay and it was a huge life saver in terms of all the walking we had done on the first few days in NYC before learning how to ride the subway. My husband was really impressed with the entire tour, he thought it was going to be dull and slow. I do recommend wearing comfortable shoes it is a lot of walking. I was pretty tired after the tour, but it was totally worth it!
This was GREAT! I love it and so did my girlfriend. We love our pictures. I recommend for young adults and people who went to see parts of NY.
Marc was great.Gave us lots of useful information about New York such as places to shop/eat/good shows/transport and less well known places to visit.The photos were fabulous - lots of fun shots as well as good views of the city.Would definately recommend the tour.
Marc was awesome - had the best afternoon with him, seeing the sights of Manhattan. Cannot believe how many things we saw adn how much distance we covered - it takes a New Yorker to be able to show you this much in 3 hours! As others have said also, it is invaluable to learn from him tricks of the city such as how to use the subway. And as for getting such awesome photos with both of us in the shot rather than terrible 'self portraits' - well that is priceless in itself. Thanks Marc for a great day, we wish you every bit of success and good fortune in the future. Sal and Al from Melbourne, Australia.
Well this would have to be the must do tour of NY. I have recommended this to everyone as our photographer Mark was informative, fun and delivered sensational photos of us in NY. If you onle do one tour this has to be the one! Fantastic Mark, 10 out of 10!

This was the highlight of our visit. We came to NYC for the weekend but the 2 hours tour was very informative. Within those 2 hours, we have learnt lot, we went to places that we would have not known and best of all we had the friendliest tour guide ever. Marc is very professional and did a wonderful job. The photos he took are so beautiful and perfect. I could not thank him enough. To people who read this review, I recommend the Private New York Walking Tour with Marc when visiting New York. It will be worth it. Thank you Marc and keep up the good work!!!!
Highly recommend this tour, going first thing in the morning to avoid all the crowds is the best idea, got over double the amount of pictures guaranteed an they are all fantastic quality. captured memories that will be cherished.
We had a wonderful time! Mark was very entertaining and informative. The photos that he took will be part of every story that we tell about NYC. thank you!
Fantastic - A must for all couples who visit NYC. This was one of the highlights of our trip. Our guide Marc was knowledgeable, friendly and a great photographer. It's fantastic for us to have professional pictures capturing our memorable trip to New York City.
This tour was very, very good. My boyfriend and I got so many pictures together in an amazing city! Fantastic because as a couple its hard to get pictures together without wondering "is he going to run off with my camera?". We did this tour on our first day in the city and we got a lot of information they helped us with the rest of our holiday. Thankyou so much!
What can I say - my husband laughed when I said I wanted to book this trip.. Well, he ate his words after the 2 hours spent with Marc our photographer. He was first class, from the direction on the day and pictures he provided I could see why after eight years he's still in business. This trip although appears a bit pricey is well worth every penny, we are both so glad we booked this trip, without the likes of Marc you would never get memories like this. What I would suggest is taking a change of top, as so many pictures with the same outfit on gets boring. We stopped for a comfort break at Grand Central and I could have easily changed my top and pictures would have been a bit more varied.
It was a great experience. You won't regret it. We and all my friends like the pics. Kennedy is great!
We had a really good time seeing all of the different sites throughout the city. We couldn't have possibly gotten such great pictures to remember our trip without Kennedy's help!
We loved every minute of our tour with Marc. He was very professional and managed to get photos of our family in the middle of NYC and they look as if we were the only ones there in many photos. All the photos were amazing and the very next morning, the CD arrived at our hotel as promised. We did things I had never done as a New Yorker myself, all I can say is " Book it" you won't regret it!!!!!
We had a great time with Kennedy, learnt so much about the city and have great photos to remember our trip. Would do this in every country if it was available. Will definitely be sharing this tour with many of my friends and family who are are visiting NYC in the future. Thank you so much for a fun morning and great photos.
Fantastic tour guide and tour.
We done this the morning after we arrived , This being the first time for us in NY. The guide showed us how to get a subway card and how to travel around, and he took us on the Brooklyn Bridge, Central Park, Little Italy , China Town, 42nd Street, Park Avenue and lots of other places while all the time explaining where we were and where we going to. We had lots of photos taken that were hand delivered to our hotel room while we were out by the next day. Kennedy was our guide who was so friendly and made us feel relaxed in such a busy city. He bought us water when we needed it and allowed us to sit down when ever we wanted to. He even said he would allow us to go on a free tour of his own in his own time, on another day which was brass rubbing all the wonderful plaques in NY and to turn them into works of art, this sounded very interesting, but unfortunately we had made plans for our stay in NY, so maybe next time. Highly recommended. 100/100 *****
We had an amazing time with Kennedy. He knows where go and how to get there. He is friendly and funny and works really hard a taking great pictures. We even got one with the NYPD in times square. We had a blast! Great memories and a wonderful way to see the city with someone who knows about it.
Was the best welcome to New York City we could ever have! The photo's were great and we learned so much about the city and how to ride the subway!
Best thing we did in NYC! Kennedy was fun, friendly and informative. We took this trip on our first day which was a great introduction to the city. Kennedy showed us how to navigate the subway and gave us lots of recommendations about places to visit. We have 144 brilliant photos from this trip- great keep sake! The CD was dropped off at our hotel that afternoon too. Highly recommended!
Wonderful experience! Our guide was knew the city and it's history VERY well and took many great photos to make this a great memory. Highly recommended!!!
Great tour! We did the three hour one and don't think we could have fit everything into 2 hours. The time flew by and we covered a lot of New York City. We took the subway to some of the places so you can save yourself some time if you buy your subway passes in advance of the tour. Do the tour if you are considering it. The tour guide, Marc, is excellent and the pictures were great!
It was the best thing I have done in thw whole trip ! The pictures are amazing and the photographer (Kennedy) is a very great guy and fun to be with. I highly recommend this trip to everyone :-)
Absolutely loved this! Great way to find your bearings for your first few days and get fantastic photos at the same time! The tour lasted the 3 hours as indicated and we got well over 200 photos which were delivered on a cd rom within 24hours to our hotel. Our guide, Kennedy was fantastic, gave us so much information about the city as we went and an all important crash course guide on how to use the subway. Highly reccommended, well worth every penny.
Highlight of our trip.
Mark was wonderful, informative and when we got the 170+ photos we realised he was a good photographer as well.
He even contacted us a few days before and offered to change the day as bad weather was expected for our booked day.
Highly recommended and worth every dollar.
