Hello Visitors,,,, Welcome !!!

I was not born in NYC, so what! But live in NYC my entire adult life, schooled in NY and variety of jobs from government to high tech, Years went by and I developed deep passion for the city, becoming a Tour guide was a no brainer as I am a "New Yorker" (:-  who loves to entertain you and educate you about this multi faceted city.that I call Home. Navigating thru NYC Streets as a Maestro... talking about it all,,,Sights, Attractions, Landmarks, Architecture, History, Culture, Food, Trivia. Incorporating a great sense of humor - I 've been told :) with Students, Seniors, Incentive groups and international groups.

A bit about me -

A wide range of life experiences that made me a unique guide, from a Tank Commander to Diplomatic service followed by Engineering degree followed by years in a technical & business world transitioning to become College instructor - quite different than NYC landscape where I spent most of my time these days.. as proud NYC Tour Guide,,, Great choice !!!     LOVE every moment of it.

over the years several individuals that toured with me told me "Thank you for becoming an American" , teary eyes usually followed...

 * So - bus, subway,van or limo are perfect way for sightseeing,

 ** Reasonable rates -  Would love to hear from you,

*** I can assist you with logistics & ground arrangements as well
