Wir hatten einen super Tag mit unserem Guide Lukas. Er hat uns NY aus seiner Sicht und, da er dort lange gewohnt hat sehr individuell gezeigt. Für uns war es das Beste, was uns am ersten Tag passieren konnte. Teile vom Central Park, Chinatown (dort haben wir auch gegessen), Little Italy waren unsere Stationen. Die Zeit verging wie im Flug, Lukas hat viel länger sich Zeit genommen. Es war einfach für unsere Familie mit 2 erwachsen Töchtern super!!

It was an unforgettable experience. We were picked up directly from our hotel. Our guide Anette was great and looked after us very well throughout the trip. Whether supporting program or culture, it was an entertaining program. We were very well entertained, would book it again exactly like this, and we would like to thank our guide Anette for this great day

Wow, that was an amazing experience. We booked a guide for 5 hours. Beforehand, I was written to by an agency and asked what exactly we had in mind and wanted. In response to my reply, I received a message from Raphael (Ray) via WhatsApp. We have clarified everything. Ray was on time. He explained the subway to us, explained an incredible number of things, showed us sights and all on a colleague basis. In fact, it is as if you are being shown around the city by a friend. 1A, I can not say more about it.
