While in NYC for a short trip we decided to take in the city having been before we wanted to experience the city in a another way we decided to book a tour and have someone be able to capture the moments instead of selfie angles over and over. Kennedy was phenomenal he met us and immediately gave us the itinerary but also allowed us adjust it slightly for our needs he was extremely friendly a ball of energy and gave us so much knowledge that we did not know about the city, the turn time for the pictures was FAST we received before we returned home easy to download. Great Tour!! Highly Recommended”

This was our first trip to NYC and despite the all day rain this tour was amazing! Our guide Marc was excellent and a wealth of information. We covered a ton of ground and with his suggestions were able to see most everything we wanted since we only had one day. He made our experience very memorable and having the pictures to document is just an added bonus. We would highly recommend this tour for anyone. J and D from Louisville, TN”

Are you one of those tourists who forgets to take pictures during a vacation or one who takes horrible selfie's? If you are, then this tour is perfect for you. Marc is a NYC native who not only is very knowledgable of historic landmarks but also takes gorgeous pictures. It's definitely a win win situation. You come out of this tour with great memories of nyc culture and photos of you in it!”

Jesse was an amazing tour guide and photographer (we just got our photos back and they are AWESOME). I appreciated Jesse's knowledge of photography and how to get just the right look! I would highly recommend this tour - it is definitely money well spent!”

There was a little confusion regarding the booking, which I spoke with Marc and he was friendly, professional, and committed to our experience being excellent. Brief conversation, we were golden. We had the good fortune of having Kennedy as our photographer and he was fun, focused, and he took some excellent photos. We had the benefit of dumping rain, which my wife and I were really not prepared for, but Kennedy and our two nieces were, so we pressed on and it was absolutely worth it. Because of the rain, we had Central Park and the Brooklyn Bridge practically to our selves and the weather cleared and we had the benefit of having pictures in two different weather settings in one session! It wasn't what we had hoped for when we started, but trusting Kennedy to press on, it turned out to be a wonderful experience and one we'll always remember. When life serves you lemons, you make lemonade! With Kennedy's help, we made some delicious lemonade. My wife and I visit New York annually, and I have been on the Brooklyn Bridge a number of times and it has always been very busy. I am posting an iPhone photo I took to show how we had the bridge pretty much to ourselves.
I would highly recommend this photo tour, and ask for Kennedy!”

I wholeheartedly recommend the Private New York Walking Tour with a Personal Photographer Marc! Aside from the fact that Marc is one hell of a guy, hes a total professional. Marcs got the timing down on the entire tour, he knows how to handle the crowds so that there are no unwelcome photo-bombs, and he is so accommodating to ensure a great outcome. This was absolutely the best purchase upon planning my NYC trip. Anyone visiting NYC for the first time, or just seeking a bunch of professional pictures with NYC as your backdrop, I recommend Marc 100. Oh and bring comfy shoes, the more you are willing to walk the more variety of pictures you'll get.”

Worth every penny! Our guide Marc was wonderful. Very knowledgeable and so nice and made sure to get the obvious pictures along with some fun ones too. We got to see some things that we hadn't had a chance to see yet during our visit and the amount of pictures we received was amazing. And every single one of them was a keeper - that almost NEVER happens! If you are looking for a great way to capture some wonderful memories on your trip, this is a must. Highly recommend!”

Best tour was NY by night from the Hudson, followed by the walking photographic tour, the photographer was superb and talented. Macey's parade was excellent, but the Italian Restaurant, whilst good, was over priced for what you actually had and the windows were partially obscured. You would have needed to drink yourself silly to make it value for money. We were asked to be there half an hour before the appointed time and all were left out in the cold and not permitted entry until 8.00am.
All tour operators were very good, knowledgeable and very polite.
What can you say about NY, the City that never sleeps. There are no words to describe the experience. Be prepared to walk and walk. It is easy to get around when you get used to the street planning. And the views from the top of the rock and the Empire State are amazing.
NY is expensive, but where isn't now-a-days. Food, variety and quality excellent as the service. However be prepared to tip anything from 10 to 20, even when at the bar.
All in all an excellent experience, to be highly recommended.”

Marc was an excellent photographer, and helped us navigate New York while we were with him, and after he left us. Getting us on the subway, and teaching us how to use it was very helpful. The pictures are a great remembrance of our trip together. Would recommend this tour.”

He was very knowledgeable and willing to accommodate our wants. We only did our photos down by Brooklyn but he did a really good job. He got our photos to us later that day when it usually takes a couple of days to get them delivered. Would highly recommend”

This tour was great for the great photos we got out of it. Our photographer was great: informative, professional and captured tons of flattering photos. He took us to several sites around the city. We mostly walked to the sites but took the metro once. He was so professional that people thought we were taking engagement photos, but we were just trying to commemorate our NYC trip! The photos are not edited, but if you dress up a bit, they look fantastic.”

Fantastic tour, with a local tour guide and photographer. Taken to many NYC sights and have the photos to prove it!
Also, managed to orchestrate a special location during the tour to propose to my girlfriend at the time - we've since been on another tour with the same guide, to different locations, during our honeymoon. Would definitely recommend!”

This was one of the highlights of our trip! Money well spent on photos we will cherish forever. Marc, our tour guide was fabulous! We talked about what kind of pictures we wanted as well as backgrounds and he took us to some great iconic NYC landmarks.”

We booked the tour for June 2nd and would highly recommend them to anyone thinking of doing a sightseeing tour of New York.
Marc is a very good photographer, as shows through the resulting photos we received. The route of the tour is entirely up to you, Marc gave lots of info on the different places during the tour.
I would say that Phototrektours is a must for seeing the sights and we have photo's to treasure.”
