Birthday Weekend Made Even More Special

Totally worth the price!!!! The blizzard may have delayed our session but left a beautiful background for our pics. Kennedy did a great job and gave us great information about New York that made our trip even more complete.

We recently returned from a mother/daughter trip to NYC. We had a tour with Marc on our first day in the city. Not only was the tour informative, but it was also fun. The pictures were simply amazing! Highly recommend.

Excellent photo tour. Pics are amazing. We could never have captured such moments ourselves. Photographer was also a great tour guide and gave us loads of tips for the rest of our vacation. Highly recommend this tour during the early part of your vacation.

Absolutely loved this tour & the photos.

A relative had taken a tour with Marc in August & recommended it as being worth it. As the person usually behind the camera I wanted lots of family pics to make our trip of a lifetime into lasting memories. Managed to squeeze into a spot with Marc on our first full day in New York & we're all so pleased we did it. We have 3 teenagers-19, 18 & 13 all who would not have let me take the pics that Marc was able to get them to pose for. We had photos in various combinations which was also great. Marc had a suggested tour but was happy to swap things in & out depending on where we wanted photos.

But it was not just about the photos -Marc gave us a tour from a New Yorkers perspective with tips & hints & places to go etc. He taught us how to use the subway & helped purchase our tickets in a few minutes that would have taken us longer to work out ourselves. He rode the subway with us to take us to sights to see & photograph so we saw firsthand how simple & convenient the subway is. We used the subway multiple times everyday after that. Our tour finished at 3pm on Christmas Eve (thanks Marc for fitting us in!) We had our photos well within the 48 hour time frame even with Christmas & we couldn't be happier. The photos on the Brooklyn Bridge looked as though there was no one on the bridge but us...but it was actually packed. If you are prepared to listen to Marc & get into place quickly you'll have some fantastic photos that you would never get yourself.

One tip: try to plan your tour on your first full day in New York so that you get the overview of the City & most importantly the subway as well as knocking a few sights off your list early. Highly recommend Marc-he is energetic, funny & full of ideas & tips & his photos were great.

Thanks Marc

Amazing tour with great photis

Absolutely an amazing way to start your time in New York City. Our tour was in the pouring rain, but this did not dampen the enthusiasm and professionalism of Marc. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour, learnt heaps about where to go (and not to go), how to use the subway which we used every day since.

Highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting a great waking tour of New York with great photos to cherish the memories.

This was my family's first trip to NY. We booked our tour based on the reviews, and we were not disappointed. Marc is a fabulous tour guide and takes beautiful pictures. We had some rain on our tour, but that did not stop us from having an amazing experience and wonderful pictures. As first timers to the city, it was perfect that we booked the tour for our first day. Marc gave us some ideas for dining and sightseeing that were great. He even taught us how to use the subway!

Booked as recommended for our 1st day in NYC. Marc was excellent & introduced us to the city by way of the subway and restaurants. The photos have made our holiday complete. The memories when we look at these will be priceless. Thank you.

A Great TIme

This was actually my second time on the tour. Last year I did it with my teenage daughters and loved it so much I did it again this year with my wife. She loved it too!

You cover a lot of ground in NYC, see a lot, and learn a lot. The cherry on top is that you also get wonderful photos (with you in them!) in iconic New York places and circumstances thay you would not other wise get.

My wife set her personal record of 'likes' with photos posted from the tour. That says it all.

Take the tour-you won't be sorry!

Everyone should do this

This was the best decision I made in planning a trip to New York. Marc is knowledgeable, fun and makes sure you get the tour you want. I'd suggest following his recommendations, we got to see neighborhoods and parts of the city that we never would have gone through ourselves. It is the difference between being a tourist and really getting to experience a place. Wandering through SoHo, the Village, the Upper East Side, ducking into the Plaza and getting recommendations on bars, music and food helped make our trip. Marc wasn't a goofy, overly cheery guide - he knew all about the places we were going, didn't feed us a line of bull about things to see and gave us some of the history of the city that we were really hoping for on the tour. We set a good pace and Marc made sure we saw things we were interested in while getting some amazing pictures. New York deserves more than a selfie stick and we couldn't be happier with our pictures. Marc managed to make it look like we were alone on the Brooklyn Bridge which probably deserves a standing ovation from everyone who has ever tried to do the same. He was also patient enough to get some specific poses we wanted. I read the reviews recommending doing this your first day and I couldn't agree more. You learn about the subway, get an idea of what you want to see and then it's easier to do everything else. When friends ask about my recommendations to go to New York I will tell them pack the comfiest walking shoes you own and book this tour.

This was my 2nd time-Because its just that great!
Sat, Dec 5, 15   8:30 AM SerinaM Female 20-29 International Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
I attended this tour in 2008 , sent my parents on it when they went to NYC in 2009 and I again this went this past weekend. It is such a great tour, lots of fun, great photos and informative photographer. The tour focuses on things you most want to capture and gives you unforgettable keepsake photos.

My now, fiancé and I took the tour early Saturday morning, which turned out to be the best because it wasn't too busy and offered us a lot more opportunities than the afternoon mob crowd would have. He captured wonderful pictures and even caught the proposal at the end for us. Overall, this tour was once again amazing and something I recommend to anyone going to NYC.

Mothers and Daughters Christmas Shopping Weekend
Fri, Dec 4, 15   10:00 AM callum25 Female 50-59 International Tourist(s) Group of Friends
I had done this activity with my husband six years previously so when I visited NYC this year on a Mothers & Daughters trip it was the first activity I booked for us.... loved it then and our group loved it this time. Mark's energy and entheusiasm was matched only by our own! he goes out of his way to ensure you see lots of interesting places and he takes the best photos ever of your Big Apple trip.

Can't recommend it highly enough it was just the best fun ....and with great photographic memories to treasure forever!

Dress for the weather synonomous with the time of year .... best if the ladies resist taking their handbags, they just get in the way of clean-line pics. Wearing nice co-ordinated colours and sun glasses produce cool results too.

Marc was amazing
Wed, Nov 18, 15   9:30 AM Samwalker0 Female 40-49 International Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
Marc immediately put us at ease, so we forgot we were being photographed half the time! He is a knowledgable New Yorker who not only answered almost all of our questions but also gave us loads of hints and tips and places to explore for the rest of our stay in the city. He was informative, fun and good company as well as being a pretty good photographer!

Thank You!
