Your itinerary will be worked out between yourself and our local experts in New York City. They are extremely knowledgeable and highly resourceful — trust us! Your tour doesn't need to be a walking tour, we have access to vehicles and buses if needs be, so the world is your oyster (or at least New York City and the surrounding area is, in this case!). Whatever you are looking to do that is within our Responsible Travel charter, we can organise it for you.
We offer a wide range of options for your Custom New York City tour.
- Food tours
- Beer tours
- Wine and spirits tours
- Historical tours
- Neighbourhood tours
Our private tours can be done as walking tours or by vehicle. Pricing for our private tours is done by the hour. For groups of 12 or fewer, the first two hours are USD 300 and each hour after that is USD 100. The price does not include any food, drink, or transportation, which are all additional. We can accommodate groups larger than 12 but the price may increase depending on the size of your group and the type of tour.
All you need to do to get your bespoke private tour organised is to choose your desired tour date. Use the booking function on this page for this request, and choose the number of passengers in your group. In the additional request box, include any information you think will be helpful in organising your tour. No payment is required to make your initial Custom New York tour inquiry.
As soon as we receive your inquiry (during normal office hours or at the next earliest point), we will contact you by email or, for those who leave a USA phone number, we will give you a call and begin the process to organise your perfect stay in New York City. Then, to secure your desired date and time of the tour, we'll ask for a non-refundable deposit.
Once your itinerary and quote is all confirmed, we will deduct the deposit from the final quote. We can arrange all final payments and terms during the planning stages of your private New York City tour.
Inclusions: We will work with you to include whatever you need in accordance with your wishes and budget.
Exclusions: You'll discuss what will be included in your tour with your local guide. Exclusions will simply be anything outside of the inclusions you've agreed upon.
Dress standard: We will let you know the appropriate dress for your custom tour when we finalise the itinerary with you.
Confirmation of booking: We will be in touch with you by email or phone very shortly after you apply the booking process here, to go through your required tour details and pricing with you. All details and pricing will be worked through with you during that conversation. Nothing is booked before that point.
Additional Information: To secure your desired date and time of tour, we’ll need a non-refundable deposit. Note that the deposit amount will vary depending on the options you select for your private tour. We will discuss this with you once you’ve made your initial inquiry. This deposit will then be deducted from your tour once you come to pay for it in total.
Child Policy: This is a child-friendly tour, depending on the activities chosen. Children between the ages of 6 and 11 inclusively are permitted on this tour at a rate to be determined once your tour itinerary is confirmed. Please select ‘child’ above when booking. Children under the age of 6 are not permitted on this tour. If the tour includes visits to bars or alcohol production facilities, the minimum age would be 21 years.
