James

I've been a New York City tour guide for 8 years now and I've loved every minute of it! I lead tours everywhere from abandoned military bases to historic parks to the cobble stoned streets of old New York. My tours are designed to travel the spectrum of the city experience from it's Dutch beginnings to sites yet to come. Nothing's too touristy or too esoteric to talk about as long as it's interesting.
