What to Expect for this Dedicated Service

This is a dedicated service recommended to all those looking for extreme flexibility and who want to organize multiple activities throughout their vacation. One of the things our clients ask us the most is to be able to develop a full itinerary that will include private sightseeing tours while integrating admissions to local attractions, museums, observatories, etc. based on geographical locations, itineraries of the day, and optimal times to visit local venues. Think of it as Private Tour Guide meets Dedicate Concierge Service.

Traveling and exploring new destinations shouldn't be a cookie-cutter affair, you should get the vacation you want at the price you can afford, or at least as close as possible. And an expert local guide can help you with that.

If you are interested in customizing your experience in NYC, you just need to select how many hours of tour guide service you would like to reserve using the simple form below, we just need to know the dates of your travel, even if approximate, and the number of total guests. You will be assigned a tour guide within 24 to 48 hours from your request with whom you will start planning your customized NYC experience.

Answering Top-asked Questions

Who should book this Service?

Travelers that don't want to just join a regular tour but would like a comprehensive and dedicated service and the help of a local expert in organizing multiple days. Yes, local guides know the history of the city & some fun facts that they can share with you and entertain you during a two-hour tour. However, their true unique asset is that they know so much of the things happening around the city, the best kept-secrets, the attractions worth visiting and when to go, how to save money, etc. Local guides have both the advantage of being NewYorkers, knowing the ins and outs of the city as residents, and of course the expertise of being fully-licensed tour guides. With this service, you get both worlds and you can make sure to tailor your stay to your needs and preferences.

Are there any extra or hidden fees?

No. You will pay for however many hours you would like to book and with your assigned guide you will arrange the different tours and itineraries. Things that are not included in the price are admission to attractions/museum if you select to visit them, cost for meals, transportation, etc.

Can I change the dates?

Yes. You can change your travel dates up to 8 days from the first tour date with no penalty contingent on the guide's availability.

Can I change the itinerary once approved?

While interacting with your guide, you can ask and modify the itinerary however you like so you get the service you desire. However, once everything is approved and confirmed, only minor changes are allowed. We try to accommodate last-minute changes, however, we ask to be considerate of the Tour Guide's time in putting the itinerary together.

If I cancel my service, do I get a refund?

You have up to 8 days before the first date of the tour to cancel the service for a partial refund. What does partial mean? It means you will receive a refund for the hours pre-booked MINUS a $35 convenience fee to cover the time the Tour Guide has spent creating the itinerary for you.

Are your Tour Guides licensed?

Yes, all our guides are fully licensed by the city of New York. They are local New Yorkers, natives, or lifetime NYers and love to share the ins & outs of the city with travelers from all over the world.

I’m the biggest fan of Fall activities, but haven’t had a chance to do anything beyond Apple Picking in NJ. I decided to take a last minute 2 day trip with a friend in Hudson Valley, but didn’t know where to start [...] Thankfully I was able to use New York Welcome to do the hard work for us [...]

Irene was a FANTASTIC tour guide! She was so knowledgeable about the area and was so patient with all our questions. We stopped to use the bathroom and we got coffee halfway through, she was so kind! It was a pleasure learning about Brooklyn from you!
