Harlem tour yields fan email

Both ____ and I had a great time on the [Harlem] tour.  I really liked the
fact that you combined historical events with more current neighborhood issues and that you were so flexible in going with what we were looking for [architecture and social history].  It was a great day!

.... we look forward to booking another tour in the future.  ...

All the best and stay cool,

Holden Caufield's New York City Tour - Catcher in the Rye

I launched a Catcher in the Rye NYC Tour about Holden Caufield's anti-hero odyssey in his Manhattan. 

We had a great time!   We saw great things, experienced great literature, and we also experienced that a city that was timeless for the narrator is a city of constant, dramatic change, just as Holden was learning that life is.

Had we had more than four hours by foot, we could have experienced the inside of the Museum of Natural History and caught the Museum of the City of New York's special exhibit of New York in the 1940s photography by Stanley Kubrick, who was around Caufield's age in his era when the pictures were taken.  This exhibit will be up through 28th October 2018.

This is a good tour to hire a Driver for, since Holden was in town for three days on his adventures.  Even he took cabs.

From a guest 

Hey Jared Just to let you know we had the best time ever today. I knew it would be good but it was a zillion times better. I’ll be honest when I told [my 19-year old son] I’d hired a tour guide it was dreading it and didn’t want to do it. As I guessed he thought it was amazing too . We were in a restaurant for supper and he said. “I wish Jared was with us the whole holiday” ! Thank you so much

A review as seen on the web

Fantastic Private NYC Tour with Jared G 5 stars

Aug 4, 2016

Our family of four (including two teens) had never set foot in New York prior to our recent nine hour layover. ..so we arranged a private tour that covered the highlights of the city. Well, the limited highlights you can see in 5ish hours.

.... communication throughout was fantastic and our tour guide was truly superb! He completely customized the agenda and made adjustments as we went along to be sure we could visit our preferred areas/sights. He was incredibly knowledgeable and just plain fun to hang out with for the day. Vacation time is truly precious and you'll be immensely gratified if you spend a portion of it with this tour company and, more specifically, Jared G.

American Museum of Natural History tour review

 The museum is HUGE and with my family we wanted to see the most on this tour without wasting time.

Jared, our guide, had wonderful historical facts about the museum and the displays. It was great not to have to stare at a map half the time and just follow his lead. We told him what we wanted to see and we were able to see it all and more!
