“Fred Pflantzer was amazing - the tour was five hours and we wanted more!!!”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

Fred was the best ever. Knowledgeable, funny, interesting and really took the time to answer everyone's questions. We were on our honeymoon and weren't sure if we wanted to spend five hours doing this but opted to go. Glad we did, it was so great and we had a blast. We both had been to NYC a number of times but going with Fred, we got to see so much and would have never known all the things that he showed us and explained to us. My daughter lives in NYC and after listening to us talk she is going to get a group together and go as well. Thanks for being a part of our honeymoon Fred - we loved it!!

“A brilliant way to see the city”
Reviewed 29 January 2012

I've just been on the best tour of New York. Fred was an interesting and engaging guide. The tour was a great mix of walking and driven and Fred had loads of interesting stories to tell at each stop and whilst we were. I keep trying to decide what my favourite part of the day was but, in truth, it was all brilliant - Central Park, Chelsea Market, Battery Park, The High Line - fabulous!!

Dear Jenn, Thank you so much for your kind words, you were a fantastic guest! Every time I looked over to you you had a big smile on your face. We had a wonderful group on Saturday and beautiful weather. What a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon in NYC.

more than a guide, Fred became our host in New York, we had a wonderful tour with him, who introduced us to New York City.

“Very informative”
Reviewed 31 December 2011

My boyfriend and I spent 1 day in NYC before cruising out of Bayonne, NJ. I chose NYSee because of the great reviews and we had a nice time.
Our group consisted of 14 ppl, which was unfortunately overbooked by 1 person that day, so the van ride was cozy. The van picked us up and dropped us off at certain spots and we walked to a site. We were lucky that it was a sunny (but cold) day because there was quite a bit of walking - which I enjoyed, however it may not be for everyone. We visited Central Park, Grand Central Terminal, High Line, and World Financial Centre for view of WTC site. Washroom and lunch breaks were planned into the tour, but it is definitely a busy 5 hours. We also took the subway back to Times Square, and the subway fare is included.
Fred is incredibly informative and knowledgable, told us lots of little facts and great stories about the various sites that we visited.

Yes, it was a bit cozy, but thanks for being a good sport about it. I'm glad you enjoyed the tour. Weather has been wonderful in NYC, watched "The Ball" drop in TS last night, great crowd, fun night.

“A great introduction to New York!”
Reviewed 16 December 2011

As a first time visitor to New York I wanted to get a feel for the city. As I was only there a short time the 'Get Aquainted' Tour was the perfect way to do that. Our guide was really knowledgable and you could tell he was passionate about what he was saying - after listening to him speak you couldn'd help but love New York too! It was very interesting and I definitely plan to visit the city again. Highly recommend.

Hello Salt Lake City! Thanks for joining us on tour, we had a great time. First-timers to New York present us with a blank slate, and we appreciate you allowing us to help fill it in with our love for the Big Apple. Hope to see you again in the future.
