Maria-Leena Kerr


I'm a native Dane who decided in 2006 to make New York City my home. Thirteen trips later I moved here, and I now call myself a professional NYC tourist and tour guide. I hold two degrees in hotel and tourism, manage an online concierge service for Danish tourists and speak fluently Danish and English.

I love working with visitors in creating a perfect itinerary for their trip - and I've been blessed with the opportunities of touring with every kind of traveler; the budget-tourist, families with kids, singles, couples, seniors, and business and student groups. Let me show you, that there's more to NYC than Times Square and Williamsburg!

Special Tours: 

Taste of Queens;

Lonely Planet voted Queens the # 1 destination in the US in 2015. Why not see for yourself, what makes Queens such a unique destination? My "Taste of Queens" tour takes you to three very distinct and different neighborhoods. It'll give you an introduction to the most diverse county in the United States, and it'll leave you with an experience most of your fellow tourists won't get.
