Pros: Tour guide was very knowledgeable and shared interesting details we would have never known otherwise.
-Driver drove fast so was hard to really take in/see many of the sites.
-Driver drove a bit recklessly and kept getting whiplash
-Tour guide and Driver argued a lot which made it very uncomfortable for us. At one point the tour guide asked the driver to slow down, then the driver slammed on the breaks.
-Tour guide wanted to sit with us so I had to sit in the middle and could see pretty much nothing.
We wished we just took one of the cheap open bus tours so that we weren't in the middle of an awkward argument and could see the sites better.
The US women’ Soccer celebration threw a big monkey wrench in our planned tour,but even with huge traffic problems, our guide “Bernice” did a great job of improvising. We ended up seeing just about everything in spite of the crowds.Great folks. Knowledgeable,innovative and entertaining.
Hey Charles (and family) !
Thanks so much for the generous review of your Private tour with Berenice. She is such a great Private guide !
I'm very gratified you had such a good experience in the BIg Apple despite the tough traffic conditions.
Thanks for choosing and finding us - and thanks for the raisins !
Sheldon - Best New York Tours
Sheldon was a fount of knowledge and we found ourselves constantly saying” I did not know that” even though we have resided part time in the area for many years. Al, our driver handled the van with proficient skill and determination. A requirement when driving anywhere in NYC.
Sheldon obviously loves what he is now doing and he communicates skillfully with the disparate ages of those he is guiding. He gave us and our 15 year old granddaughter an insightful and thoughtful tour of Manhattan from 96th all the way to GroundZero and back to our residential lodging spot.
He offers humor as well as an intellectual perspective and clearly loves NYC and Brooklyn. He found great views of the city skyline from several vantage points.
He insures your full attention by insisting everyone turn their cell phones off, except for photo ops in order to be able to impart his vast knowledge of the history of the city.
It was a flexible tour giving us the chance to see things we particularly wanted to see yet offering him the chance to show us many things we never knew about.
All in all it was a great day and we sincerely appreciate and applaud his efforts to insure we were satisfied customers.
As with many things in NYC it was not an inexpensive tour, yet we think it was worth it thanks mainly to Sheldon.
Our tour was fantastic! In 5 hours Sheldon showed us at least 2 to 3 days worth of "New York" must sees AND many other NYC sites which makes NYC and its surrounding areas so unique to USA history and culture. Sheldon and Borris were great!!
Great way to tour New York if you have limited time!

I had my family of five touring New York was a very personal experience and was well worth the money. Sheldon did a great job of tailoring the experience and was very knowledgeable of New York history.
We signed up for a four hour tour of NYC by SUV. We had a driver and a separate tour guide who did the talking. Anne Desmond was our tour guide and her enthusiasm for NYC was readily apparent. She has in-depth knowledge of many of the buildings and neighborhoods we toured. The tour was very informative and interesting would do this one again.
Knowledgeable and friendly tour guide .CLEARLY A MAN WHO KNOWS AND LOVES THE CITY, AND IT SHOWS. Provided interesting anecdotes on NYC, rather than just a canned presentation. large van provided a comfortable means of transportation throughout the tour for 4 people.
We had a group of 6 with four adults 70 and over. The tour allowed us to see many of the best NYC locations in 6 hours. Sheldon our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable on the history of many NYC attractions including the Chrysler Building, Grand Central Terminal, 911 Memorial, Central Park and many more. I would recommend to anyone trying to see a lot in one day.
