New York City to the Hamptons Private Day Trip
"We had a very nice day with our tour guide Frank. He showed us all the special spots you had to see in the Hamptons. We really appreciated his patience and knowledge about New York and the Hamptons. All in all we had a wonderful day and would recommend him any time."..."

New York City Tour with Driver-Guide and Separate Guide Option
"This experience was even more fabulous than I thought it would be! So much better than jockeying for a good seat on an overcrowded bus! I highly recommend having the separate guide as Dan was able to tell us wonderful facts about what we were seeing when we left the car, while Robert the driver could drive around or wait for us. Robert also gave us some good facts. The two worked well together even though this was their first time. They totally customized what we saw to our interests which can be hard with two teenage boys in tow. My oldest was fascinated to see what he was learning about in his US history classes. Of course we were blessed with amazing weather but I believe they would have made it great even if it were raining. I wish i could give it 10 stars."..."
