Benefits of a tour with Custom & Private Tours™

  • Having provided literally thousands of private tours in New York City we have learned how to entertain, amuse and target our guests interests, preferences and whims. That’s what Custom & Private tours™ are all about.
  • You’ll not hear robotic scripted speeches and monologues. Our tours are engaging, conversational, peppered with thoughts, questions and discussion. Or just relax and listen as you may wish.
  • Catch the excitement; tall tales of tall buildings, secrets of Grand Central, the origin of Central Park; Harlem is not what you think! Stories and amusing folklore: the players, risk takers, barons, and villains who’ve claimed this town bring it all to life.

  • Your tour begins at the time and place your wish together with your guide and a chauffeured vehicle* suited to accommodate you group size. Tours have a four-hour minimum. If you decide to extend your tour, no prior commitment needed to do so.
