I guess if you are reading this you are planning a trip to New York! What ever you do make this top of your to do lists. I emailed Dan from Steetwise a few weeks before our fist trip to New York. I am a Photographer and my 17 year old son a musician so quite a mix of interests! I had asked Dan to show me the Real New York as I wasn't really interested in Times Square Ect..... Boy did he deliver! We spent 4/5 hrs around Queens and Long Island City. I found within 10/15 minutes it felt like we were walking with a friend and not a tour guide. Dans knowledge/rooted passion for New York was amazing! Dans suggestion of meeting at the beginning of our trip was great and with his recommendations of places to see and Music shops to find it kept us going for our 7 day visit. I can't recommend Streetwise and Dan enough and will certainly contact them again on my next trip. Thanks again for a great insight to a great City.

Andrew did a great job of customizing a tour of Queens for our family. We didn't really know what to ask to see/experience, but after a few emails and well posed questions, he had a good sense for what type of tour we would like and some significant stops along the way. Our boys, ages 11 and 14, enjoyed the tour as much as we did and have already, in casual conversation, referenced things they learned and saw along the way.

After visiting New York on many occasions we decided it was time to venture off the island and learn more about one of the other boroughs. The Queens tour was extremely interesting and Dan was a fantastic guide. We started in Jackson Heights and Elmhurst then travelled via subway to Astoria. We walked and learned about history and cultural influences in each neighborhood and stopped along the way to sample local food. I particularly liked Astoria and we will definitely return on our next trip. There were so many cafes, restaurants and independent stores that it definitely deserves more than one visit and time away from Manhattan.
