Hi, my name is Ronald.
In addition to being a resident of Manhattan and New Yorker for more than 30 years, I have lived & traveled extensively in Europe. I have both Bachelor's and Master's degrees.
I am a fully legal, licensed and insured driver-guide (NYC TLC & DCA). I offer PRIVATE DRIVING TOURS of New York City and PRIVATE DAY TRIPS from New York out of the city. I use a late model vehicle licensed by the Taxi & Limousine Commission (TLC). It is roomy, comfortable and can accomodate up to six guests. All of my tours are dispatched by a TLC base, monitored by GPS and reported to the TLC, as required by law for any car or van used in sightseeing activites in exchange for money.
If you prefer your tours warm in winter, cool in summer and dry in the rain or snow, then I ask you to consider me. I offer maturity, blended with knowledge and 14 years experience. I enable you to see the city up close and personal, but buffered from the crowded city sidewalks, subways and buses. My use of a vehicle also provides the flexibility to get to those out of the way places, without you wasting a lot of time and tiring you out by walking.
If you have a mobility impairment or its just not as easy to get around as it once was, I am more than happy to accomodate you and do my best to help you enjoy New York!
I am totally flexible as far as times and itineraries are concerned. I operate on your schedule, at your pace, with your comfort, desires and wishes as my highest priorities.
Please review my list of New York City tour and day trip options. Contact me for more information and/or if you have questions. Should you have any special requests, requirements or if you prefer a custom tour of some sort, just let me know. I will get back to your promptly. Let's see how together we can make the most of your time in New York!
*Note: If you prefer having a separate driver and guide, I can arrange that at a greatly discounted rate.
