How to Make Your own NYC Historic Tour with Private Guide

Experience New York City’s rich history aboard a time-traveling trolley bus. Listen as your tour guide, an expert in NYC history, most likely dressed in authentic historic costume, providing descriptive commentary from the perspective of a renowned historic figure of a bygone era.

You might be traveling with a large group of people and buying tickets from one of the well-known sightseeing bus companies in NYC might get a bit expensive for a large group. Creating your own tour can save some money for the group and you can customize the itinerary to whatever time length you like.

To impress your guests and make this Historical NYC tour look and feel professionally done you will need two things: A private tour guide and a trolley.

There are many websites that offer freelance service for private tour guides, but for your peace of mind you might want to book a private tour guide from a reputable agency.
