Are you visiting New York City for the first time? Or perhaps, you love this city and can't stop coming back for more? Either way, don't miss the chance to discover the boroughs of the Bronx, Queens, and Brooklyn with this private and tailor-made Tour. Manhattan might be the most famous area of NYC, but this city has so much more to offer that it would be a pity to miss it!

A Bespoke Tour of the Contrasts of New York City

We like to call this private experience – "The  Contrast Tour" not only because you will be able to familiarize yourself with the different cultures found in New York City but you will also see how dramatically different the city is when going from one neighborhood (and borough) to another. There are many attractions and sights to choose from around these boroughs, and with the help of your dedicated Tour Guide, we will package an exclusive bespoke tour just for you!

The main idea behind the Contrasts Tour is to discover and live the different "corners" and "faces" that New York City can offer us from its skinny multi-billion dollars skyscrapers to historic tenement buildings, from the luxury boutiques of 5th Avenue to the corner Delis and Bodegas (aka a local supermarket.)
New York City is probably the first and prime example that comes to mind when we think of the idea of melting pot, and thanks to this bespoke tour of the Bronx, Queens and Brooklyn, you can live it first-hand!

Difference between Regular and Private Tour

As you may already know, we only specialize and run private bespoke tours as we like to offer to all our guests unique experiences based on their specific requests and preferences. Although, we do partner with another local tour company to offer a similar "Contrast Tours" for those looking for a group experience and a more budget-friendly option, our Bespoke Tour of the Bronx, Queens & Brooklyn is completely tailor-made. This is what sets apart from the other companies. We strive to give full control to our guests over the experience, so we can better tailor the stops we want to make, the sights we want to focus on and the "theme" of our tour –– should it be more history-heavy or perhaps you are more interested in the "here & now" of the city?

This is why we recommend the bespoke tour to families and groups of friends, or to mid-to-large groups; it will become a way more unique experience specifically tailored to you. You will also have the option to be picked up and dropped off at a place of your choice - i.e. your hotel in Manhattan or similar.

You can customize your unique Itinerary – would you rather focus on Flushing Queens or Long Island City, maybe less time in The Bronx and add something in Brooklyn? Or vice-versa? Well, anything is possible thanks to this private tour; we can fully customize the Itinerary to our client's needs and requests.

You also have the option to extend the Tour to include the iconic Coney Island, the popular New York City Beach famous for its Luna Park with one of the oldest wooden roller coaster still active today, the iconic Nathan's Hot Dog, and prominent Graffiti and Murals by renowned local and international artists.

After you place your reservation (online on our site or by phone), one of our expert tour guides will be in touch with you to tailor the excursion to your requests. She/He will be there the day of the tour and all together, you can go explore the beauty of this city beyond Manhattan.

All of our Tour Guides are profesionnal and certified guides by the city of New York and in possession of the Sightseeing License. You can rest assured they will take great care of you and your party.

Irene was a FANTASTIC tour guide! She was so knowledgeable about the area and was so patient with all our questions. We stopped to use the bathroom and we got coffee halfway through, she was so kind! It was a pleasure learning about Brooklyn from you!

I’m the biggest fan of Fall activities, but haven’t had a chance to do anything beyond Apple Picking in NJ. I decided to take a last minute 2 day trip with a friend in Hudson Valley, but didn’t know where to start [...] Thankfully I was able to use New York Welcome to do the hard work for us [...]
