Shelley was an absolutely phenomenal tour guide. He is literally an American gem. He knew so much about the city, he was funny, he was sincere, he made it fun and I would recommend this tour AND Shelley to anyone visiting NYC.
Shelley was a typical New Yorker, full of knowledge and humour and he made the tour a real pleasure. Our kids are still talking about him now we are back in the UK. They learnt more in that 6 hours than they learn in a week at school. The visit to ground zero was very poignant especially as our guide had lost family in the tragedy.
I just wanted to write and tell you that the tour we took with you on April 24th was the absolute highlight of our first ever trip to NYC. I am still telling people about it. Your knowledge of the city and personal touch were worth every penny and more.
Shelly (Sheldon) our guide was a fount of knowledge especially about Brooklyn where he grew up and was entertaining and interesting company.
Just wanted to let you know how much we appreciated the time you spent with us last Thursday. Your information-filled tour with so many interesting anecdotes was a highlight of our stay. Thank you again for the great tour – we will pass your name to those traveling in the future.
Sheldon aka “Shelly” was our tour guide. He was simply amazing. As a native New Yorker, he gave us so many interesting historical facts along with stories about each New York City sight we were seeing. Shelly’s personal stories gave us added insight and information that you won’t get from other tour guides. At every stop where we got off the bus, Shelly was took care of everyone making sure no one got left behind. I felt like he was my own VIP personal tour guide. I highly recommend this tour. If you can ask for Shelly as a tour guide it’s worth its weight in gold.
9.5 hr with Shelly as a tour guide and Ricardo as a driver. These guys are incredible! Shelly is a wealth of knowledge, loves his city and proud to share it with you, as Ricardo skillfully navigated thought the city. If you get these guys, you will have a great NY experience.
Sheldon, just wanted to thank you for a job well done. You finished off a great trip and Robbye (my wife) says she wants another tour next time we are in town.
Our tour was led by Shelly and driven by Anthony. Safe to say the day was amazing, we didn’t just sit on a bus and look out the windows, Shelly actually got us off the bus and walked us around all the sights and gave us so much info and history it was so interesting and made the day a delight! I would highly highly recommend this trip to anyone!!!
If you’re lucky enough to have Sheldon as your guide you’re in for a real treat. It was a non-stop tour full of information, personal stories and laughter as well as emotion - in particular Ground Zero - such a moving visit especially with Sheldon’ s family experience of the day.
...Exciting, exhilarating and because of Shelley, our tour guide, so informative!! Forgetaboutit!!! I learned a lot about the city because Shelley loves NYC and pointed the historical and the hysterical all out.
Thank you again for your wonderful insights into some of the finer aspects of New York today.Your personal perspective brought to life many of the sites we saw. I was particularly moved by the 9/11 site and also wanted to express my condolences to you and all fellow peers for your devastating loss. It is immeasurable.
Thank you again for the wonderful tour today, it was the perfect way to start our trip!
My daughter, grandkids and I can’t stop talking about it! You were do informative and made the trip so enjoyable.
I’ll tell u what, my friend; you really made our trip a great experience. I’m already trying to figure out when I can get back. Thanks again, and have a happy Thanksgiving. Stay in touch!!
