Your Tour Guide

About me About me

New York is an ever-changing city and only someone who has been living here most of his life can show it to you like no other person. A certified New York tour guide, I have been in business for over 30 years, conducting tours in buses, limousines, private cars, and on bike and walking tours.

Languages Languages

I give tours fluently in four languages – German, French, English and Hebrew and little less fluently in three others – Spanish, Italian and Arabic.

For your convienience For your convienience

The tour can last 8 hours or 4 hours. We can take a limousine or use public transportation, either way assuring you a memorable experience that will stay with you for many years.
All of my tours can be conducted in any language. If it’s a language I don’t speak, I will arrange for the best among my colleagues to do it for you.

My guarantee My guarantee

I will tell you stories of what I have witnessed. I will make you laugh, and yes, there will be spots where they will be tears in your eyes.

Unlimited possibilities Unlimited possibilities

We can go on an exclusive tour of Harlem, visit a Baptist Gospel Service and enjoy a soul food brunch. We can visit a Hassidic Jewish neighborhood and sample their typical foods. Or we can go to Chinatown and have a dim sum lunch. We are not limited to these options; we will cater a tour to your interests and desires.

Outside of NYC Outside of NYC

I also give On the Road Tours. I have conducted over 180 cross country tours, and traveled up and down the east coast from Niagara Falls to Miami at least a 100 times.

  • I want to thank Ron for the wonderful hospitality in NY, even though he had visitors, tour groups and home matters to attend to at the time of my visit. Ron’s passion for life, for his neighborhood and for NY shine through. His home was lovingly and tastefully put together, just like a home. He knows everyone in his neighborhood and took it upon himself to speak up for the community. I had the good fortune to be invited to join Ron and his friends at a mini-concert on 58th Street, one of the many piano shops that hold these concerts from time to time. After which, Ron gave us a guided tour down Broadway to Times Square, passing the famous Carnegie Hall and Carnegie Deli, wow, those cheese cakes at the window! Ron often has a story about the places/buildings he pointed out to us, and that made all the difference. What a treat! It was a wonderful experience of NY and a great way to end my visit. Thank you, for the generosity and hospitality, Ron. Now NY does not seem so formidable.

  • Hallo Ron, vielen Dank noch einmal für die sensationelle Führung. Wir haben sehr viel gesehen und eine Menge an Informationen erhalten

    - Ursl, Austria
  • We cannot thank you enough for introducing us to New York in such an interesting way. In half a day you showed us the entire length of Manhattan together with insightful and often humorous commentary. As a real New Yorker who clearly loves the city and has collected masses of information on the architecture, history and folk lore, you very quickly made us aware of many of the distinctive features of the area, much of the tour being away from the usual tourist haunts.
