I scheduled with Family in New York because we had only one full day to take in as much as possible. It was definitely the right decision. Easy communication. I was traveling with my mother and a friend for her 70th birthday. We were there on a weekend in mid December - huge holiday crowds. Our guide, Scott, eased us... More

As I remove the Georgia clay from my boots, I am reminded of Dorothy's famous quote "there's no place like home" - however Family In New York made our trip amazingly enjoyable. Scott was very respectful of timely correspondence, thus allowing us to stay informed. The driver was polite, professional and punctual. He remained calm and collected in the horrendous... More

A great tour of NYC. Mark met us at our motel and he guided us from there. He was very flexible with any stops we had to make with our young children. A great company to work with and our kids loved it.

Due to big problems between Celebrity Cruises and US Immigration, we finally disembarked over 3 hours late for our New York tour with Scott. Certainly not a good start to the day at all! Our tour was planned to be for 9 hours from 09:00 but didn't get going until 12.30pm. However, Scott was very proactive under the circumstances and... More
