Why a Custom & Private Tour


As a private tour provider in New York City, we take great pride in this wonderful city, a unique and exciting global destination. Only an experienced New York City tour provider, such as Custom & Private can immerse you and your family, friends or group into the core of The Big Apple and take your mind and heart to places of historical, cultural and artistic interest to ensure that your stay, not just your tour, is a most exciting and memorable one.

We do believe that much is lost by self touring and for good reasons. The guide books provide, for the most part, factual information, answers as to who, why, how, where and when, like news journalists are trained to do. But, often something is missing, and that's the story behind the story or the amusement, the spirit, the story of risk and the origin of the seed of an idea that sprang forth. That is what livens up the best private New York City sightseeing tours.

We have no scripted speeches or monologues. We're not robotic; we're enthusiastic and we love what we do passionately! You'll catch the excitement when you hear the stories behind The Empire State Building, The Dakota, The fence at Bowling Green Park and the fascinating Brooklyn Bridge. Central Park has a story that most New Yorker's don't know but you will if together we create a private tour for you that includes Central Park. As a licensed and private New York City tour provider it is our pleasure to build a tour that focuses on your interests, preferences and whims and make your tour experience the most memorable and informative that you could wish for.

Accommodating those with special needs, such as walking challenges for example, is our pleasure. We have vast experience minimizing walking during our tours if need be. In nearly every instance, we do so without omitting popular sites as well.

Our staff of licensed New York City guides speak over fourteen languages enabling us to embrace a global audience and satisfy the wishes of those who prefer tours conducted in their native languages.
