Our small group sizes and personal headset radio system ensure you have the best experience possible, giving you more freedom to explore without missing the guide’s live commentary.
We have the perfect solution for someone short of time but who wants to see the key sites: our custom and private tours! Choose from either half-day or full-day experiences to visit the sites of your choice.

I’m Sal, City Tales Tours’ owner and operator, and local New Yorker. After spending years down in NYC’s financial district, l decided to direct my customer service skills towards another project – New York City guided tours. We aim to offer guests interesting, entertaining, and memorable tours. How do we do this? Through our range of original and diverse tours, and most importantly our guides. Our passionate and friendly guides pride themselves on their engaging stories and know-how to help you save time and see more.
Our tour guide Jim made the day so fun and memorable – Loved it all… Just go – you won’t be sorry.

You are an excellent, engaging guide and your memory is super impressive! We would never have been able to appreciate all that happened if we had just walked round by ourselves. Read more.

Lots of personal stories also made the tour come to life, saw a number of extra bits I wouldn’t have looked for. A very personable friendly guide I would recommend anyone coming to New York to specifically ask for her.
