strongly reccomended!!

My husband and I decided to book a phototrek tour to commemorate our first trip to New York together (without kids!).We were searching for a tour of New York, however, the typical group tours do not appeal to us - then we discovered Phototrek tours. The tours were highly reccomended and came with great reviews, so we gave it a shot. We loved it! Our photographer, Marc, was amazing - so informative and pleasant. He provided us with options for our preferences ie Grand Central Station vs SOHO...other areas we visited included Central Park, Times Square, Brooklyn Bridge, subway stations, Upper West much fun. Marc showed us the ropes for the Subway, gave us a suggested itinerary for the rest of the day and restaurant / tourist hotspots. The photos were stunning. We reccomend good walking footwear, comfortable clothing, the least amount of baggage possible (ie coats, backpacks) - Marc moves quickly to maximise your time with him and coats and bags can get in the way and slow you down. We had an 8 AM tour...perfect time....quiet and cool in the morning and amazing morning sun! Also, a recent tip I used with the tour,try and wear clothing that can be modified throughout the photo ladies, dress it up or down with a scarf...and guys...a nice vest/hat, etc to change up some photos. We would love to thank Marc for such a wonderful experience and so many memories (over 100!!!!). A definite 5 star tour highly reccomended!!!

Best NYC Tour Ever

We have been to NYC multiple times and taken this tour multiple times (with different guests) and it is always the highlight of our trips. We threw Marc a couple of curves this time with regards to logistics and he handled them with ease. That's the beauty of this tour; its yours to customize. A great way to see the city up close and personal --- plus we have 150 great pictures of us all over NYC! If you do only one tour in NYC; do this one. I highly, highly recommend it!!!

Great tour and great photos!

The tour provided a great overview of several neighborhoods within the city and lots of historical and cultural detail. Our tour leader, Marc, is a very knowledgeable and personable guy, fun to tour with, and easy to work with. We threw him a curve ball at the last minute with my Muscular Dystrophy (which affects my activity levels), and he was able to modify the tour on the fly to accommodate my needs. We love the photos, and highly recommend the tour to everyone!

outstanding intro to NYC

what a fantastic way to get a feel for the city of NY, and have your photo taken too. Marc our guide was simply fabulous. He was fun, quirky, and really loves his home town. we were a group of 5 girlfriends and we did the 3 hour tour. the time simply flew by. we had all been to NY previously but some of us has had not been there for years. this was my 3rd trip and i still saw and did new things. Walking over the brooklyn bridge was a highlight, as was going into Grand Central. Touring Dumbo and Brooklyn Heights were a bonus!. Central Park and 5th Avenue etc were fun too. Not withstanding we were staying in the neighbourhood, Marc still showed us some places that we would not have seen otherwise! Highly recommend this tour for any visitor to the city of new york

Fantastic Tour - Would definitely recommend!

This tour was the best decision we made, it was the first thing we did when we arrived in New York and we couldn't have picked a better way to start our trip. Marc was very helpful, especially for two sisters who didn't know their way around the city, and the photos are fantastic. He showed us how to use the subway and pointed out to us the option of purchasing the weekly unlimited metro ticket for $31 which saved us at least $35 in subway fares let alone what it must have saved us in taxi fares. Being a local he knew a lot of interesting things to tell us and told us about some great places to eat. All round - I would highly recommend this tour & Marc to anyone.

LOVED THIS TOUR. Marc was great. He was on time, personable, knew and loved the city. We had a great time seeing the city in a way we would not have had the chance to. I love getting my picture taken, but seems so boring when it is only myself or my husband in the photo. I hate to ask strangers to help. This is the perfect option. It was very cold on Saturday, but that didn't stop him. The pictures are fun. I am having some of them converted to canvas, but out of the 100+ I am having problems deciding which ones. They are all so good.

Awesome experience!!

We were a group of 14, 7 gymnastic girls, age 12 and parents. Marc tailored a tour for us that was so much fun. It was great to be able to just follow him around and not have to worry about getting lost with such a large group. The girls had a blast and were calling Marc our own Paparazzi. We saw parts of the city we probably wouldn't on our own. Marc took photos of the girls as a group and each parent and child for some really great memories! He was fun and we all had a geat time. I would do this tour again myself and will definately recommend it!! Thanks for the great memories and photos!!

I booked the tour with Marc as I was planning to propose to my girlfriend on our trip to New York. He was more than happy to take photos of my proposal and provided some excellent suggestions for some great locations to pop the question. Marc was very easy to communicate with, even from the other side of the world and he was very quick to respond to any questions. We met at the recommended location and he was there on time and ready to take us through his tour of the city. We were given a lot of good tips on how to get around and where to eat and also some general things only a local would know. He had our photos ready almost immediately and even though we didn't get to view them until we got back home it was fun showing family and friends the shots from the tour. Traveling as a couple we would never of been able to take the photos Marc took of us specially the ones of my proposal. To top it off she said YES and I have some great photos to remember our special day. All-in-all the tour was definitely worth it and it is perfect for first time visitors like ourselves. We really enjoyed it and can't thank and recommend Marc enough.

A fun walk around town

We did this tour at the end of our holiday which was good and bad as Marc had some great ideas for restaurants to eat at. We had been to most of the places he took us to, but it was great that we could go again and have photos with both of us in them. Great tour and great photos

Excellent tour

My wife and i went on this tour, we met with Marc our tour guide at a previously arranged location. ( A theatre in Times Square) Marc was very professional and made us feel instantly at ease. Marc gave us a few options of where we could go on the tour and allowed us to see the places we wanted. Marc was full of interesting facts about New York and advised us of places to eat and drink that we probably would never have found on our own. We got nearly 150 beautiful photohgraphs that captured our first time in The BIg Apple. Marc was a lovley guy and really knew what he was doing, i would recommend this tour to anyone who wants beautiful reminders of their time in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. THIS TOUR IS A MUST

Repeat trip! Another amazing success!

Marc captured our family trip to NYC perfectly! We concentrated mostly on Central Park, and it was amazing how many of the photos made it look like we were the only family in the park. Loved the park feel with the amazing skyline in the background. Our 4 children range from 11-15 years old and we only had mild grumblings from our 11 year old (and even that was at the end of the 2 hours!). Marc makes it feel like an informative NYC tour vs. a photo shoot, yet I have well over 200 photos...all worthy of framing. Thanks, Marc!

I highly recommend this to all, It was our first visit to The Big Apple and our guide was so informative with lots of tips about this beautiful city and we got over 100 lovely pictures to show and friends and family in New Zealand and Aussie the next day on Facebook.

Marc was quick and efficient, took great pictures, responded to our likes, and provided excellent advice about what to see/ do in NYC, how to get around, and what to think twice about doing. Highly recommend Marc.
