THEY TOURED WITH A GUY...
Read what other tourist have to say about the guided experience!
"...he knocked it out of the park!"
"As 2 families (4 adults, 3 teen children) bringing our kids to NYC for their 1st experience, we decided to book Adam to show us some of the areas that we were not knowledgeable about sharing with them. We knew after our 1st conversation that he was going to be a great tour guide. But he knocked it out of the park. Adam's knowledge, personality, and sharing of hidden gems exceeded our expectations! We learned so much and had a great time in the process. However, Adam is so much more than an outstanding tour guide. His attention to every detail is unparalleled. He made sure we arrived in the city safely, gave restaurant suggestions near our activities, gave tips on how to navigate the subway system (saving us hundreds of dollars), helped us get amazing pictures, was patient with moving 7 people though a very crowded city & became a dear friend in the process. Give yourself the best gift you can while in NYC and book I Know A Guy NYC tours. Adam is the hidden NYC gem!"
- Linda G., Dunwoody, GA
"Adam was exceptional from begin to end."
I have been to New York many times but this was a trip I will never forget. Adam was exceptional from begin to end. He met us every morning at our hotel and had our whole day custom planned to fit our needs. He took us all over the city, to many places I had never been and told us the history or an interesting fun fact. His knowledge was amazing. We covered so much ground in two days, we ate and laughed our way through New York. I would recommend Adam to anyone!
- Nardene H., Marietta, GA
"… a highlight of our trip."
My husband and I took my 16 year old son to NYC for spring break. This was our first trip without our now college aged daughter and my son was not overly happy about her not being there. We hired Adam to take us around Brooklyn, DUMBO and the Brooklyn bridge. It was awesome! He made the area come alive for my teenager. He loved it and never complained! Adam filled the trip with fun stories that we all loved! Our tour was definitely a highlight of our trip. Adam also helped us organize our trip and recommended great restaurants.
- Julie S., Atlanta, GA
"We started the day as strangers and ended it as great friends."
Adam is one of a kind! He is warm, friendly, and engaging, and he makes it his mission to make your time with him unforgettable! We traveled to the city with our daughter for her 10th birthday, and we wanted her to hit the highlights of the city. He did all that and more! He gave us history and fun facts along the way and made everything perfectly relatable to our daughter. We traipsed all over the city - from Brooklyn Bridge to Wall Street to 9/11 to Grand Central to Roosevelt Island. He made it 100% entertaining for us and completely stress free! He navigated the subways and taught us how to get around and generally just showed us some of the coolest things in the city. We started the day as strangers and ended it as great friends. Book him for your next trip - it will be the best decision you ever make!
- Meredith C., Atlanta, GA
"If I could give him an A+++, it wouldn’t be a high enough mark!"
I took my 40 year old intellectually disabled son to NYC and could not have done it without Adam! He let us go at our own pace (even though we had to stop and rest every few feet). He was so patient and understanding regarding my son’s disability and was so knowledgeable about the city. He even told me what bus to take to get to the Port Authority as we did not stay in New York. He walked us BACK to the Port Authority and right to our gate, after our tour had ended. Adam was more than accommodating of my son’s needs! If I could give him an A+++, it wouldn’t be a high enough mark!
- Lu S., Knoxville, TN
"His genuine interest in and engagement of my children was the highlight of the walking tour for me."
I can't say enough great things about Adam's ability to lead you on a fun walk around NYC! Here's a guy who earnestly wants you to have a good time in New York and goes out of his way to make that happen. Honestly, where does this guy get all this energy and charm?!
This was the first time in NYC for most of us, and Adam did a tremendous job making everyone feel comfortable with the city. The information he provided us along the way was always fascinating and always just the right amount.
Mere minutes after I booked the walking tour with Adam, he became my go-to guy for NYC tips and recommendations--weeks before we actually arrived!
But perhaps what I appreciated most about Adam was his willingness, desire, and ability to connect with each one of the five of us on an individual level. He initiated one-on-one conversations with each of us, getting to know us and making us laugh. His genuine interest in and engagement of my children was the highlight of the walking tour for me. Even my most introverted child was coming out of his shell and cracking Adam up with his wit by the end of the tour.
I would recommend Adam to anyone who is visiting New York, regardless of how much you think you know (or don't know) about the city. Thanks, Adam! I hope we are lucky to join you for another tour in the future!
- Nathan H., Decatur, GA
"Adam will make any visit to New York the best it can be."
How to craft an NYC visit that will be a crowd pleaser for seasoned travelers comprised of an ex-Manhattanite, her teen son and her history loving husband? Enlist I Know A Guy, and most importantly, Adam. Start to finish, this was the pinnacle of tour experiences. Once I booked, Adam set up time to go over our interests, and proposed a walking tour of Soho and the Village.
Having lived in NYC for 16+ years, I figured this tour would be primarily for the rest of my family--Adam proved me wrong, as it was a huge hit for all of us. From the welcome note, to greeting us at our hotel, to the encyclopedic knowledge of buildings, local history, bathroom stops and delicious taste treats, Adam guided us through these charming parts of the city beautifully. The teen was engaged (thanks largely to Adam's energy and customization), the history lover was sated and I was delighted to discover things about the city I never knew.
It's clear Adam loves New York City, learning about his guests' interests and the challenge of putting together a bespoke tour to blend the two. Whether you have hours or days in the city, booking a tour (or 2!) with Adam will make any visit to New York the best it can be. Can't recommend highly enough!
- Karen A., San Francisco, CA
"He will make it an experience you will never forget!"
Adam is amazing! He customized the trip to be exactly what we wanted. Some of us had been to NY before and others hadn’t but he made sure it was the perfect experience. He knows so much about the city, can tell the history, answer questions, and has a great sense of humor. He is truly the best tour guide I have ever had! I would 100% recommend him to anyone going to NY! He will make it an experience you will never forget!
- Cheri V., Marietta, GA
"Adam far exceeded my expectations."
Adam was recommended to me by a friend. Adam far exceeded my expectations. He is genuinely an awesome person. I was able to just relax and enjoy the beautiful sites and architecture. His history knowledge is amazing. I crossed a few things off my bucket list. We saw more with Adam in one day than we would have in a week solo. In addition, we had a wonderful lunch in Chinatown. Introduced my granddaughter to her first Cronut. A quick lesson on using the Subway. Recommendations for Broadway shows. Saw a few hidden treasures some of the locals may not even be aware of. I can’t wait to go back so Adam can show me the rest of the city. Adam, thank you so much for everything and we will see you again soon!
- Shirley K., Gainesville, FL
"He was so accommodating of everyone in the group."
Absolutely recommend Adam for your tour guide needs. He was so accommodating of everyone in the group. Gave me all of my history/architectural moments, as well as cute spots for photos for my teenage niece. We had a great time! Thanks Adam for showing us around NYC!!!
- Elizabeth G., Houston, TX
"It was a day we will always remember."
We were fortunate to spend a good half day touring Brooklyn Heights, Dumbo and crossing the Brooklyn Bridge (and various streets and subways in between to get there) with Adam. And boy does this man know New York! But more than that he knows how to do a tour. At no point did we feel like we were on an organised tour (and I’ve done plenty of those!!) It felt we were walking through neighbourhood streets with a newly found friend who we knew we would happily meet up with again when we next return.
I cannot recommend Adam highly enough! If you have never been to New York, or if you have been there countless times but want a new spin on what you’ve seen or what you’ve never had the opportunity to experience contact him!! I was fortunate to have a close friend put me in contact with him before we left and I have already passed on the favour to another friend. Thank you Adam 🙏🏻. It was a day we will always remember.
- Kate R., Perth, Australia
"A Really Good Guy!"
A friend recommended I Know A Guy tours and she did us a real favor. Adam Guy knows the city and shared his enthusiasm with us. We had a grand time touring Brooklyn and DUMBO. It's hard to say which was more fun, seeing Brooklyn or spending time with Adam. A Really Good Guy! Do yourself a favor and do a tour with I Know A Guy tours of NYC!
- Charles K., Springfield, VA
"It's not often that people go above and beyond these days, but Adam does."
"If I could give Adam an 11 star review I would! Adam made our visit to NYC so easy, interesting, and complete. We had him draw up a custom itinerary for our 2 day tour with him based on our family’s interests. He did an amazing job and is the energizer bunny! So many hidden gems that Adam showed us. Adam also knows everything about the shows. He helped me pick one out and navigate seats and tickets. Really above and beyond. I was really confused as to how to plan the next 5 days. Adam planned a custom itinerary with links to buy tickets, organized by neighborhood. Made it so easy! He threw in great restaurants, attractions, modes of transportation. It’s not often that people go above and beyond these days, but Adam does. He also has texted me after our tour to check in and made himself available for questions, guidance and just good ole friendship. I wish there was an Adam in every port we visit. Simply the best!"
- Amy D., Atlanta, GA
"I can’t wait to book him again."
We booked Adam based on a referral from a mom’s referral Facebook group. So happy we booked him. He called within minutes of requesting information online and we were fast friends. He assessed our goals of our mother/ son trip. Our request was nothing too touristy and to enjoy NYC like the locals do. He helped me nail down not only our tour with him but he gave solid recommendations and timing to schedule the other three days of our vacation. Every rec was spot on. The day of our private tour he met us where we were getting our morning bagel at 9am and off we went. He helped school us in the ways of the subway and I am proud to say that we continued to use it for transportation for the duration of our mother/ son trip.
He kicked off the tour with some baseball trivia and historical landmarks which piqued my son’s interest immediately. We walked Brooklyn Heights and learned noteworthy history such as visiting the site of the “Grand Central Station of the Underground Railroad.” We enjoyed the views from the Brooklyn Promenade. We learned about and walked through Dumbo, the Brooklyn Bridge, and Chinatown. My son wanted Dim Sun for lunch and we enjoyed a delicious and authentic meal together. We took off to Roosevelt Island and learned it’s storied history and conquered part of Central Park. Many New Yorkers that I spoke with during the trip stated that we saw parts of New York that they had not even been to and were very impressed with what we covered in a one day time period. He continued to check in with us for the duration of our trip to assure our Broadway show experiences were satisfactory and he gave us more good recommendations. I can’t wait to book him again to tackle another part of NYC with my husband and other two sons in the future. He is a wealth of knowledge, personality, and fun. Adam is passionate about his city and wants you to enjoy it as much as he does. He is the best kept secret in the city and you should book him while you still can!!
- Becca J., Atlanta, GA
"He took personalized to the next level."
"Adam is great for newbies and experienced NYC visitors alike. I am often in NYC for work so it was important that I get a guide that could show me something new. Adam took us to Brooklyn Heights and DUMBO and it was an amazing experience! I have taken many tours and work in the industry as a guide. I have a pretty high bar and Adam sailed right over it. Why? He took personalized to the next level -- really becoming our friend in the city for the length of our stay. He listened to us and gave the tour that best fit our needs (less walking, moderate amount of stories, and great photo ops). He is also just so friendly and fun! If you are going to spend a morning, a day, or several days with a guide it's important to be comfortable with them and being with Adam was like being with an old friend. I honestly can't recommend him enough."
- Hollijo M., Burley, ID
"When people asked us what we saw in NY, we all talk about the day we spent with Adam"
Spending the day with Adam was incredible! We learned so much during our tour. Adam gifted us with an appreciation and love for the parts of the city we didn’t even know existed and may not have visited!
As a family of four with a pre-teen and a full teenager, we opted for the Brooklyn Heights/DUMBO/Brooklyn Bridge tour. It turned out to be the perfect mix of interest, history, and beauty! I cannot recommend taking a tour with Adam enough, after spending the day with him we wished he was with us all week. Having someone who knows the history of the area you are exploring is everything not to mention the fact that I as the primary planner of activities could check out for the day and just follow Adam and take it all in. I didn't have to think about where the nearest bathroom was if we were hitting all the highlights in the area, or if we were taking the right train. Adam does it all and will even make sure you know where to eat and grab a tasty treat!
Adam is also more than happy to take photos of you in all the key places. The best photos of our trip were the ones Adam took! When people asked us what we saw in NY, we all talk about the day we spent with Adam. He is not only a seasoned tour guide, but he knows how to "read the room" and is extremely flexible with what is working for you and what isn't. Do yourself and your group a favor and book Adam, we are so glad we did!
- Jessica S., Los Angeles, CA
"… incredible from the moment we contacted him."
"My MIL happened upon Adam's IKAG tour by chance, and I am SO glad we did! I wasn't sure about doing a tour as I usually like to meander and find my own gems but this week we stayed in the West Village and weren't familiar with the location. Adam was incredible from the moment we contacted him, letting us text him to ask ALL our questions beforehand, sending us pics of the hotel so we could easily find it, leaving a welcome note with the concierge, giving us MUCH more time than we booked, customizing our tour so it wasn't a canned spiel but was clearly tailored for us based on the info he gathered in our texts back and forth. Everyone knows you can head to Magnolia for a treat, but not everyone knows how to find Adam is a delight. Don't miss this tour and your chance to meet this sweet and helpful guy I know!"
- Jamie G., Oklahoma City, OK
"We're still beaming weeks later!"
Adam is just fantastic! He kept us interested and entertained and found the perfect balance between chatting and simply exploring. We learned about the history of the area with some really fun stories throughout. My 14 year old said that if all of her high school teachers were as engaging as Adam that she’d learn so much more (and I agree!) and the only souvenir my 12 year old wanted from the trip was a Brooklyn hoodie so that speaks volumes coming from a middle-school guy!
We covered a lot of ground but didn’t feel rushed and also had plenty of bathroom/snack breaks as needed. I’m so grateful for Adam’s easy nature - he is truly an ambassador to NYC. I’m confident that our entire trip was as jam-packed, but also carefree and magical, because of Adam’s help! What a fantastic adventure. We’re still beaming weeks later!"
- Kelli N., Vienna, VA
" I promise you won’t be disappointed.
Couldn't have asked for a better time! We had a group of 11, half of which were between 6 and 12 years old, and Adam couldn't have been better. He had great insight on all the places we visited and handled the 1 million questions from the kids exceptionally well! I highly recommend to anyone visiting NYC. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
- Evan S., Atlanta, GA
"Best decision you will make."
"Adam did a personalized tour for my daughter’s 13th birthday trip to NYC. It was the best trip and all because of Adam. He hit highlights that we all liked and enjoyed and showed us special things about the city while hitting the big tourist type things. He engaged with each member of the family so we all got individual time to talk about the city and he made my daughter feel like the trip was all about her. She is still talking about this trip over a month later! When Adam left us to go home we truly felt sad and missed him as we explored the city on our own. Although he was just a text away when we had questions! Adam is not a tour guide he is a friend that likes to show people his city- he provides a unique experience and created memories for us just like he was our friend. Using Adam at I know A Guy is the best decision you will make and best money you will spend!"
- Beth Ann C., Decatur, GA
"One of the best recommendations!"
"Loved Adam Guy! He went out of his way to tailor the tour to our desires. Not only that but he advised us on other things to do during our trip. It was like having a friend that lives in the city! Excellent and knowledgeable tour guide. We heard about him from friends - one of the best recommendations!"
- Susan S., Decatur, GA
"Everything was top notch from start to finish."
"We just wrapped a great tour with Adam Guy. Everything was top notch from start to finish. Planning was easy - we didn’t have a lot of time but he helped me to prioritize what we did on the tour and made great suggestions for what we did on our it own later. The whole process is very personalized- my children (teens) really enjoyed themselves and I found it so relaxing and fun. I’d recommend to anyone and a tour with I Know A Guy tours will be on our list for our next trip to NYC!!"
- Erin W., Atlanta, GA
"...by the end of our time together, we felt like we had made a true friend."
"Super impressed with Adam Guy!!! I would give him 10 stars if I could. We asked for an off the beaten path tour of Queens. Adam was super accommodating! He is personable, kind, witty, friendly and knowledgeable! He went out of his way to plan a very fun, informative and exciting tour covering some of the best highlights of “Queens”!
We had the best time! Even though we had not met him until the day of the tour, by the end of our time together, we felt like we had made a true friend! Highly recommend Adam and will definitely schedule with him again next time we visit NYC!"
- Dale G., Houston, TX
"...above and beyond our expectations."
"Adam gave myself, my daughter and our two friends a walking tour of Brooklyn. We explored the brownstones, churches, the beautiful view of NYC from Brooklyn. Went to DUMBO industrial area, walked over the Brooklyn bridge, rode the subway. He was knowledgeable, friendly, and turned out to be a great photographer to top it all off. We came to NYC to celebrate my daughter’s sixteenth birthday, he made sure she had all the photos she wanted. He went above and beyond our expectations before, during and after the tour. He gave us pointers on taking the subway and we saved a ton of money and time instead of Ubers! I would highly recommend anyone to see Adam while in NYC! You won’t regret it."
- Lisa C., Newberry, FL
"The insider info was really valuable..."
"Our family of 4 spent a half day with Adam walking the streets of Brooklyn, Brooklyn Heights and Dumbo, ending with the walk across Brooklyn Bridge. Adam really knows New York. Not only did he take us on a great walking tour, but he helped us with a full itinerary for our stay in New York. As first time visitors, the insider info was really valuable. We recommend him highly!"
- Joanne S., Adelaide, Australia
"Adam tailored our tour to keep our 8 and 11 year old engaged."
"I came across Adam's tour on my local mom's Facebook page. After reading reviews and visiting Adam's webpage, I decided to book with him. He contacted me the day I made the reservation to discuss what I was looking for out of the tour. My kids had never been to NYC and my husband had only been twice before. I knew my kids, particularly my 11 year old, would be really interested in Chinatown. Although I had lived in NYC for a few years, it was nearly 20 years ago, and Chinatown wasn't a neighborhood with which I had much familiarity. Adam suggested a few possible tour routes that would incorporate Chinatown. It all sounded great. We decided on a route that started in Brooklyn (another neighborhood I didn't know well at all), crossed the Bridge, and ended in Chinatown and Little Italy. Adam checked in with us the day we checked into our hotel. And, on the day of our tour, he met us promptly in our hotel lobby. Adam tailored our tour to keep our 8 and 11 year olds engaged. Everyone loved the tour. Everyone loved Adam! By the end of the tour, the kids were asking whether he was coming with us to our show that evening. And, when Adam checked in with us on the day our departure, the kids were eager and happy to see him. We had a fantastic time! I highly recommend "I Know A Guy" and will be sure to spread the word!"
- Brooke R., Springfield, VA
"We couldn't have asked for a more thoughtful guide..."
"We had a once in a lifetime trip for our mother and her 3 girls to New York City. The trip was priceless for us, We could not have been more pleased with Adam! I meet Adam through a referral from a friend and emailed him about 9 days before we were scheduled to leave for NY. HE CALLED ME right then .. not just email, not text but an actual phone call!! His tips, suggestions, help with our itinerary before we even booked a tour was most helpful! We decided on a tour of Greenwich Village, the High Line, and Chelsea Market —jammed packed with the best secrets! His knowledge of the area was incredible. His personality was the best… easy going, funny, genuine, and courteous. We couldn’t have asked for a more thoughtful tour guide to make already special trip even more spectacular!"
- Kim H., Springdale, AR
"All you would expect and more."
"We signed up for a tour with Adam and it was all you would expect and more! There were 3 of us that toured Roosevelt Island with him. His knowledge of the island and his passion for the island were remarkable. I would recommend using Adam for any tour. He even helped us navigate the Subway!"
- Kathleen S., Akron, OH
"...extremely knowledgeable and kind."
Adam is an amazing tour guide who keeps his audience engaged with the most interesting and fun facts about the city! Adam is extremely knowledgeable and kind, will curate a tour towards your liking, could not recommend him more! Each time I learn new facts, even as a local!!! Thank you Adam!
- Adrianna B., New York, NY
"Thanks for the best day, Adam."
"Adam was fantastic! Can’t recommend him highly enough! He was so knowledgeable whilst friendly and fun. We walked Brooklyn Bridge, toured Brooklyn Heights and Dumbo,
stopping at local quirky coffee shops, a chocolate factory & rode the carousel. He went so much further than the extra mile - even taking us to a swanky cocktail bar to finish, then making us dinner reservations at a great Italian place! Great value for the money and would definitely book him again! Thanks for the best day, Adam."
- Kay W., Derby UK
"Adam listened to what we wanted to see then personalized a tour based on our interests and limitations."
"On a trip to NYC, we booked a tour with Adam Guy, I Know a Guy NYC Tours. Our group consisted of 3 older women, so walking and stairs needed to be considered. Adam listened to what we wanted to see then personalized a tour based on our interests and limitations. He brought history into our tour with little known facts/details that made it so much more interesting. Adam is knowledgeable, personable, funny and kind. Thanks Adam for making my first trip to NYC such a wonderful experience."
- Janet B., Canton, GA
"...like he was our own personal concierge."
"Our tour of Brooklyn Heights, DUMBO, and over the Brooklyn Bridge was just wonderful. We learned a lot and frankly couldn't have had the same experience without Adam. My 15 year old also seemed to make it a point to walk near him...I think he was keenly interested in all the history Adam was sharing. That says a lot! Adam was so friendly before, during, and after the tour. It was like he was our own personal concierge as I bounced difference ideas and questions off of him. Highly recommend. We'll do it again to tour Roosevelt Island I think! Just need to get back to the city."
- Stacie B., Decatur, GA
"Spending the afternoon with Adam was truly magical...."
"I can not say enough about Adam of 'I Know a Guy, New York tours'. He is an awesome communicator, reaching out before and after the tour to ask what we wanted to see and how we were after the tour. He is a wealth of knowledge and took us to breathtaking Roosevelt Island between Manhattan and Queens and then through Bloomingdales to tour Central Park. He is the kindest person and gifted us both amazing chocolates for my 50th birthday!
Spending the afternoon with Adam was truly magical and he is a true gem in every way. Thanks Adam for your kindness and thoughtfulness! Looking forward to our next tour with you in NYC."
- Maya A., Boston, MA
"We had a wonderful day with Adam."
"We had a wonderful day with Adam. It was like a tour of NYC with your brother, the one you like. Lots of history and great walking exercise. We would recommend for any looking to find the hidden gems in NYC."
- Tim R., Reno, NV
"He simply wants you to love the city."
"The ideal is to have a friend in New York who could show you around the city. If you do not have that friend, I Know A Guy in NYC that will make you feel like you are being shown the City by a friend. He can design the tour himself or you can tell him what you want to see and he will take you there. He simply wants you to love the city as much as he does."
- Susanne O., Burke, VA
"He was extremely knowledgable..."
"Adam took me and a few friends on a tour of Hell’s Kitchen, Times Square, theater district, and Grand Central Terminal. He was extremely knowledgeable and had many great stories that helped our entire group connect with the rich history of NYC."
- Sam G., Long Island, NY
"Highly recommend to anyone visiting NY that needs a guide. Adam's your guy."
"The best tour we have had. The only way to see NY's best bits is with a local. We can't thank Adam enough taking us around parts that we wouldn't have found or had time for. We took a subway, carousal ride, bridge, ferry, cable car and even had great weather. All made our walk, views, photos and experience amazing. Highly recommend to anyone visiting NY that needs guide, Adam's your guy."
- Denis S., Adelaide, Australia
"Walking through NYC with Adam is a great experience - he knows so much about the city and so many great stories."
"Adam Guy was recommended to us through a friend and we contacted him right away to ask how this tour with him works. Adam asked us what WE want to see. He recommended some areas in NYC, and we built a trip through the city together with him.
Walking through NYC with Adam is a great experience - he knows so much about the city and so many great stories. He told us the whole story behind how the Brooklyn Bridge was built and especially by whom it was finished. Adam is a great guy, who not only knows a lot about his city but who also is fun to be around and made us feel comfortable in this big and great city! We now can proudly say we "Know a guy a New York City."
- Kerstin P., Hanover, Germany
"We were enjoying our tour so much, we decided to book another tour for our last day."
"Adam took us through Brooklyn and Dumbo on our second day in the city. The tour routes are well planned and he’s full of information - historical, fun facts and even city plans for the future! We were enjoying our tour so much, we decided to book another tour for our last day! He took time to learn what we have not seen and took us to the spots we missed.
Adam showed us parts of New York City that we never would have found. He is personable, funny, thoughtful and will be the first person we call when planning our next trip to NY!"
- Linda M., Suwanee, GA
"Imagine you have a good friend that just wants you to have the best time in their city -- that's Adam."
"Amazing experience! Couldn’t have asked for a better guide to NYC! My dad booked two half-day tours with Adam from “I Know a Guy” and we are so glad we did. Right from our first enquiry, Adam was helpful and informative, making sure that our plans aligned. Even though we were half a planet away in New Zealand, Adam made sure we got a tailored tour that fit us perfectly and kept up great communication both before and after we arrived. The best way I can describe it is imagine you have a good friend that just wants you to have the best time in their city, that’s Adam.""
- Renee B., Wellington, New Zealand
"The perfect match for a family tour."
"Adam Guy was wonderful. The perfect match for a family tour. Fascinating anecdotes, agile, and engaging in conversation, history, and sharing advice. The best way to experience NYC. Not just A Guy. He is THE Guy."
- Robert O., Conway, Arkansas
"I wish I had more than 5 stars to give."
"I wish I had more than 5 stars to give, as we had a five-star + adventure with Adam. My husband and I were making a 3-day trip to NYC. We both had been to the city on other occasions and had seen all the major attractions, so we were looking for something different.
A mutual friend highly recommended Adam. I filled out the booking form on his website, and my phone rang 10 minutes later. Adam asked all the right questions, quickly gauged what we were looking for, and proposed ideas for filling the day.
Even before our trip began, I knew this adventure would be top-notch. This was the week that the FAA had software issues. Adam proactively checked in to make sure we were OK with flights and was ready to help if we weren't. He wanted to ensure we had a great NYC visit - before, during, and after the time that we were spending with him.
Our day was filled with lots of walking, amazing history lessons, fun pop culture connections, great food stops, and top-notch public restroom stops! We never felt rushed but moved at a really good pace - stopping when we saw something interesting to and skipping things that weren't.
Adam successfully filled our huge need - wanting to explore and learn the city but not wanting to self-navigate or have our nose in a book or phone reading about what we were looking at. I highly recommend using I Know a Guy NYC tours for your needs. Adam made our trip super special and an experience that we'll never forget."
- Eileen P., Atlanta, GA
"Personalized and great service!"
"Adam took us around and was so knowledgeable about the city ! He will customize your tour to fit your needs! Not only was he an amazing tour guide, he helped map out an itinerary for our whole trip! Personalized and great service! 5 stars for this kind and sweet “guy”. Look him up if you are going to NYC ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️"
- Martyne, S, Atlanta, GA
"Best tour I’ve ever taken in NYC!!"
"Best tour I’ve ever taken in NYC!! As a native New Yorker, I needed someone who both knew I knew NYC but also knew that I didn’t really! Adam setup the perfect customized tour of Greenwich Village. We ended with a perfect cronut. I learned a lot of history and uncovered small trinkets of the city I will remember forever and be able to tell friends about forever. Thanks Adam!"
- Natan E., New York, NY
"He gives amazing insight on his tours and knows where to go to get amazing views of the city."
"Adam is amazing and goes above and beyond. He gives amazing insight on his tours and knows where to go to get amazing views of the city and to discover the many gems of the city. He loves NYC and it shows. I can't wait to do it again."
- Jennifer A., Atlanta, GA
"We highly recommend Adam and will use him again when we return to see more of NYC."
"My wife and I had never been to NYC, we are in our early 70ties. Our granddaughter had used Adam, so we set up a tour. The tour took us away from the rat race and was very informative as well as enjoyable. We highly recommend Adam and will use him again when we return to see more of NYC."
- Ron S., Tampa, FL
"What kind of tour guide devotes this much engagement PRIOR to a tour? Adam does."
"My family did a tour with Adam Guy in July 2022 and had a blast. Adam is not your normal tour guide. We booked his tour a month in advance, and he reached out to us almost immediately. Because we were NYC novices, Adam provided lengthy e-mails recommending sites worth visiting, particularly those requiring advanced booking. Because he is a Broadway fanatic, he gave us opinions on what would work (and not work) well for our finicky teenagers. The day of our arrival (one day prior to our tour), he reached out to make sure we did not have any immediate questions about items such as subway fares and routes. What kind of tour guide devotes this much engagement PRIOR to a tour? Adam does.
He is both passionate and knowledgeable about NYC, offering anecdotes on everything from the origins of the city to how the Brooklyn Bridge was built to where Matt Damon has an apartment. Importantly, Adam also knows where to eat, whether that is the best bagel in town or an amazing lobster roll for lunch. We now know a Guy in NYC, and we will certainly book another tour with him when we visit next."

"I feel like we saw New York in "super high fidelity" compared to other times we've visited the city."
"My husband and I have been to NYC several times but we've never quite experienced the city the way we did when we were re-introduced to it by I Know A Guy NYC tours (aka Adam Guy).
Adam's intimate knowledge of the city is truly incredible. I feel like we saw New York in "super high fidelity" compared to other times we've visited the city. He took us through Grand Central Station and pointed out small details that have real significance but that, as a visitor to the city, we would never have noticed. We can't recommend "I Know A Guy" highly enough."
- Mardee A., Seattle, WA
"Adam is not only knowledgeable of special places, but he is aware of YOUR interests and mood."
"Adam is not only knowledgable of special places, but he is aware of YOUR interests and mood. So he can make your tour unforgettable like our stroll in Central Park. Highly recommended!."

"From the moment I booked our walking tour with Adam, I knew we’d made the right choice."
"From the moment I booked our walking tour with Adam, I knew we’d made the right choice. He contacted me before our trip to ensure we were all sorted and was happy to provide advice on other aspects of our trip, including recommending some good airport transfer services. On arrival at our hotel we were greeted with a small welcome package with maps etc and a note welcoming us to NYC, such a great and unexpected personal touch. For our half day tour Adam took myself and my 3 daughters round locations, many of which we would probably never have found by ourselves. He was very knowledgeable about all the areas (and where some celebs could be found which impressed my girls!) and gave us loads of interesting facts. He was incredibly friendly and the time just flew by as we walked and talked our way around the city. Post our tour, Adam continued to check in on us to see if we needed any other help while we in the city which was above and beyond my expectations. I’d never done anything like this before but would absolutely recommend Adam and ‘I Know A Guy NYC’ tours!
- Helen A., Huddlersfield, UK
"All the stories and background he pointed out made us feel like insiders."
You would be hard pressed to find a more genuinely nice guy who truly enjoys showing people around a town he loves so much. Adam took us around Brooklyn and showed us a side of the borough that made it magical. All the stories and background of everything he pointed out made us feel like insiders. Adam listened to what we wanted from a tour and more than delivered a fabulous experience. I highly recommend I Know A Guy Tours for all your sightseeing needs. He is a NYC treasure!
- Robyn T., Arlington, VA
"He personalized the tour just for us and the things we wanted to see."
Adam was amazing!! He personalized the tour just for us and the things we wanted to see. He was very knowledgeable and kind. He even dropped off a NYC survival kit to our hotel. He has a definite passion for New York and giving you a real experience of NYC, not just the tourist attractions. He answered all of our questions before and after our tour, gave us pointers on where to go and places to eat which were all on point. I highly recommend taking his tour!!""
- RaLena N., Westville, OK
"Adam was genuine, kind and just so much fun to be with on our tour."
"Adam’s knowledge of the city is deep, but most importantly, he brings an intoxicating mix of color and passion to the stories that he shares that brings the city alive for visitors. I learned about why the New York subway system has both letters and numbers and where to take a killer Instagram photo of the Manhattan Bridge. He was a very empathetic, knowing precisely the right moment to offer bathroom breaks or a coffee pit stop. Adam was genuine, kind and just so much fun to be with on our tour. He may be the most curious and energetic GUY I KNOW in New York."
- Claire A., Liverpool, United Kingdom

He was so warm, informative, funny and interested in our lives and what brought us to this city that he loves so much. He provided great tips for Broadway shows, too."
- Tanya G., Ottawa, Canada
"A really fantastic experience..."
Adam was super friendly. One of our group was using a wheelchair so a relaxed walking pace. He had a lot of local knowledge. Adam made sure we got to next destination ok and messaged us in the evening to make sure we got home ok. A really fantastic experience and a brilliant guide.
- Ann S., Bulimba, Australia
"He made the experience unique and tailored it to our interests."
"Best guide ever! We had an amazing day in New York City and that couldn’t have been possible without our guide, Adam. He is so witty and entertaining and let’s not forget about knowledgeable - everywhere we went, he shared all kinds of interesting information with us, the type of information that makes you wonder how on earth he knows all these tidbits and fun facts. He answered all our questions and made the experience unique and tailored to our interests. You can tell he really loves what he does. Our tour was fantastic and if you’re going to NYC, I absolutely recommend reaching out to Adam!"
- Linda A., Orlando, Florida

- Martin H., West Yorkshire, United Kingdom
"Adam was very accessible via text, email and social media, he helped us our whole trip not just on our tour date."
"So many wonderful things to say about our tour where do I begin... He helped us get a great spot at the Macy's Day Parade. We were so close and could see everything, then on to the subway (hmm are we going uptown or downtown?) No worries… Adam knew exactly where to go! He was very knowledgeable of the history and knew tons of fun facts about the area. He even found the perfect pretzel stand. Highly recommend this tour, especially on your first day if possible. Adam was very accessible via text, email and social media, he helped us our whole trip not just on our tour date. Thank you Adam!."
- Karen S., Westville, OK
"He’s fun, witty and provides you with a fabulous time."
"Adam is filled with a wealth of fun facts while touring NYC! He’s fun, witty and provides you with a fabulous time. He makes you feel like a local by taking you throughout the city’s neighborhoods and showing you great spots to check out on your own, including where the best spot is to grab a slice of pizza! Be sure to ask him what shows to take in while NYC, too. He’s an expert when it comes to on and off Broadway shows and has seen an impressive amount himself."
- Coco B., Atlanta, GA
"Adam is about 98% charm and lovely human."
"Adam took us to the best views of the city, complete with funny and interesting historical and architectural facts. Adam is about 98% charm and lovely human and then about 200% curiosity about everything around him. He picked up on a lot of our random comments, edited the tour to hit some extra spots he thought we’d like (he was absolutely correct!). He also left us with a list of places to try for our favorite desserts!! If you want to feel like you’re touring NYC with a dear old friend, well, I KNOW A GUY!!! Adam loves the city and about a third of the way through your day with him, you will too!!."
- Katy H., Seattle, Washington
"The tour took us away from the rat race and was very informative and enjoyable. "
"My wife and I had never been to NYC. We are in our early seventies. Our granddaughter had used Adam, so we set up a tour. The tour took us away from the rat race and was very informative and enjoyable. We highly recommend Adam and will use him again when we return to see more of NYC.."
- Ron S., Tampa, FL
"...he was very good at conveying small items about New York that are not in travel guide books."

- Russell P., Canberra, Australia
"The thought and consideration Adam put into our tour was clear right away."
"Adam isn't your typical tour guide. No words can describe the awesome experience he created just for us! The thought and consideration that Adam put into our tour was clear right away. He knows his way around and he knows the tiniest details about things you would only know if you google them. If you ever need the perfect tour guide in NYC, Adam's YOUR GUY!!! Perfect tour guide, energetic and kind and created a memorable experience...not one that you can just get simply by looking at pictures online. Thank you Adam! Next time we come back, we're calling you!"
- Karen M., Altamonte Springs, Florida
"I can't recommend his services highly enough."
"We only had 4 nights in New York and wanted to make the most of our first stay. Adam came to our hotel on the first morning which removed any stress. His pre-visit emails had enabled us to get to know him and for him to tailor the tour to us and our children. We saw so much of Brooklyn, crossed the bridge, then took a ferry ride up to Roosevelt Island. Unbelievably we felt fully orientated to the layout of the city. And with Adam advising us when and where to go for the things we wanted to do and see for the rest of our stay we really maximized our visit. Adam is so lovely and so passionate about the city and clearly lives his best life in NYC. I can't recommend his services highly enough. If you book a trip with a tour company, you'd only see one or two things, but Adam helped us see and do so much more. I can't wait to visit again and see him as a friend next time.."
- Alexandra S., Ashby-de-la-Zouch, United Kingdom
"WHAT A GUY!"

"...(he) took us to all of the places we would have missed."
"Adam was awesome! So friendly and helpful. He got us started on the subway and helped us set up for the week. He was chatty and took us to little places we would have missed. He was thoughtful finding us coffee and stopping for rest breaks. Recommending Broadway shows was another helpful sidelight."
- Pauline F., Sydney, Australia
"He goes above and beyond to create the best memories."
"Adam made the day the most memorable of our entire trip! He goes above and beyond to create the best memories. He was just amazing. Adam has since become a friend, and we have recommended him to other people we know."
