Jason,

We had a terrific tour with you guys.

The tours were terrific. Of course I needed another vacation when I got home just to rest up! Seriously, we stayed busy and loved it. My special thanx to Nancy and Jerry on the 4 hour NYC tour. They were incredible and we learned so many fun things about the city. And we enjoyed all the room in the new 22' BMW limo!!!

The events were also terrific....The Radio City tour and show were our favorites. But we loved the museum, the theater, the boat ride, the Top of the Rock, and all that free time shopping, skating, and gawking at the sites!!!!

You did a great job of putting everything together and anytime you need a recommendation just let me know....I've already been bragging about you to everyone who asks about our trip!

Norma Baker

Hi Jason,

Thanks for your personal attention to our recent tour to NYC with our friends, Gaye and Adrian Brown. We thoroughly enjoyed our guided tour with you and appreciated the extra time you devoted to us, enabling us to see a little extra. We really had a good time, and having you work out all the details for us in advance made the trip much more enjoyable.

We did want to pass along one comment regarding our experience seeing the Jersey Boys at the August Wilson theater. Our seats were wonderfully dead center, but perhaps you didn't know that a good bit happens on a raised level of the stage which really couldn't be seen from our seats under the mezzanine. It's not a complaint at all, but we just wanted to pass that information along in case you weren't aware.

We had excellent service and very good meals at Il Cortille, Tavern on the Green, and The View.

Again, thanks for a great tour and New York experience!

Jason,

We want to thank you again for the trip of a lifetime!! I came home and told my mother about our trip. She and I would like to plan a trip with you to New York when the Freedom Tower is complete (or, more importantly, the memorial pools below)--any idea when that will be? Dave said he chose your company because of the individualized vacation as well as the testimonials from previous clients. If it helps you, I wrote a letter about our experience with your company and I will mail a written copy of it to your office next week.

To whom it may concern,

I am writing this letter to share our family's experience working with Romancing Manhattan Tours. We are from Utah and have done very little traveling. My husband surprised me with a trip to New York that he purchased “from a guy over the internet.” My first instinct was, “I bet you got scammed.”

We did some research on Romancing Manhattan Tours and even called people who had done business with them in the past. Everyone had positive comments. The trip was arranged several months prior, to go see the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, among other attractions. Jason kept in contact through the months, giving updates and answering all our questions.

As our luck would have it, our trip landed the same time as the writer/stage hand strike and we would not be able to see Lion King on Broadway! However, Jason planned meals at nice restaurants and offered us a refund on the show tickets. He advised us of museums and other great attractions. The trip that Jason helped us design was so good, we didn't even miss the musical.

Jason's knowledge about New York far surpassed our expectations. He is a walking encyclopedia! He shared New York trivia with us that only a New York veteran would know. Other tourists/passer-byers would eavesdrop and were impressed with the information he would share. Anything we wanted to do, see, or ask, we felt comfortable having Jason help us. Our trip to New York, needless to say, was a trip of a lifetime. We were very satisfied with Romancing Manhattan Tours and the individualized attention we were given. In fact, we are already planning another trip to New York!

David & Tera Porter

Hi Jason,

I must tell you that my sisters and I had a wonderful time!! Starting with the cruise around Manhattan, and then our two days of fantastic touring. It was exceptional!!

Importantly, I want you to know that we had the pleasure of Tour Guide Nancy (do not know last name but she hails from Brooklyn). She was outstanding! Nancy is extremely knowledgeable about NYC in every aspect and her love of the City was evident. We enjoyed her and we all felt relaxed, comfortable and we had FUN!

We would also like you to be aware of how much we liked and enjoyed our driver, Thiago. He treated us, as we or any customer should be treated, with total professionalism, style, and class. He made us feel very special. And that felt very good!!

Please pass along our appreciation to both Nancy & Thiago.

And last, not certainly not least, Thank you Jason and Romancing Manhattan Tours!!

Best regards, Nancy, Joyce & Gale

Hi Jason,

Yes....It was a fabulous trip. There are too many good things to say, so just know that you did a great job for us.

Comments for your consideration - and there are not many:

We did go to Mars, would not recommend it - too cheesy and a tired looking place if you want my opinion.

The rest was perfect. Our Guide Daniel and the driver were just super, although our pizza in the limo did not work out, and that could have been done a little differently, Daniel had his own ideas of how to see NY - mostly by foot - but as a parent, I wanted my little daughter to enjoy the limo and not have to run around so much - that was the only disconnect, but not a major deal, his personality and friendliness as well as knowledge about the city were great. We saw a lot and that was just perfect.

It was a great trip, thank you for your outstanding service, and yes, I will be recommending you to many many people.

Be well, and thanks again for your professionalism, thoroughness, follow through, and attentiveness to our family.

Warm regards,
Mechelle Lawrence

Jason

Our trip was fabulous! Really, everything went great....we were able to navigate around the city without a hitch and saw everything....even had our 15 second of fame twice on national television on the Today Show and Regis and Kelly (pictures with Al Roker and Katie Couric too).

Thank you so much for once again coming through for us.....we did everything on our itinerary and more, it went just as we planned and the tickets/ arrangements were handled beautifully.

I really appreciate your professionalism in making the arrangements for our tour of NYC a time to remember.

Will spread the word again to our friends and family in California and when we plan our next visit to the Big Apple....will give you a call.

Happy Holidays, Diana Lunas & Family

Good Afternoon Jason,

Sorry to be so long in replying, I was out of town. The tour was broken up over the two days nicely (doing the upper east/west side on one day in 4 hours and then mid and lower Manhattan during the 6 hour day). It was nice to have a �break day� in between sightseeing days. Leo (our tour guide) was wonderful, we all thoroughly enjoyed him (so much so that we took both he and his wife to see �wicked� with us on the first night)! It was especially nice to be able to have an ongoing conversation about the sights we were seeing, the kind of personal attention you just don�t get with the generic tours. We stopped at places we wouldn�t have even known to ask to see that were �the real New York�. All the transportation was right on time and the drivers were extremely nice.

Thanks again for the wonderful service you provide. I wouldn�t hesitate to recommend your services to anyone.

Hi Jason,

And Happy New Year by the way! Just writing to thank you and the team at Romancing Manhattan so much for helping to make our holiday in New York so enjoyable. Everything worked like clockwork, transfers, shows and all our inclusions in the "Christmas In New York" package were great fun and a brilliant experiences. I was initially a bit cautious about dealing with an overseas company (for us in Australia), to help with our NYC holiday, but I soon realised how professional and helpful your company's service is...Romancing Manhattan really made our trip special and so easy. We have been recommending your company to our friends in Australia who are planning trips to New York. Thanks again Jason and team, we really enjoyed your great city.

If it helps you, I wrote a letter about our experience with your company and I will mail a written copy of it to your office next week.

To whom it may concern,

I am writing this letter to share our family's experience working with Romancing Manhattan Tours. We are from Utah and have done very little traveling. My husband surprised me with a trip to New York that he purchased “from a guy over the internet.” My first instinct was, “I bet you got scammed.”

We did some research on Romancing Manhattan Tours and even called people who had done business with them in the past. Everyone had positive comments. The trip was arranged several months prior, to go see the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, among other attractions. Jason kept in contact through the months, giving updates and answering all our questions.

As our luck would have it, our trip landed the same time as the writer/stage hand strike and we would not be able to see Lion King on Broadway! However, Jason planned meals at nice restaurants and offered us a refund on the show tickets. He advised us of museums and other great attractions. The trip that Jason helped us design was so good, we didn't even miss the musical.

Jason's knowledge about New York far surpassed our expectations. He is a walking encyclopedia! He shared New York trivia with us that only a New York veteran would know. Other tourists/passer-byers would eavesdrop and were impressed with the information he would share. Anything we wanted to do, see, or ask, we felt comfortable having Jason help us. Our trip to New York, needless to say, was a trip of a lifetime. We were very satisfied with Romancing Manhattan Tours and the individualized attention we were given. In fact, we are already planning another trip to New York!

Hi Jason,

I must tell you that my sisters and I had a wonderful time!! Starting with the cruise around Manhattan, and then our two days of fantastic touring. It was exceptional!!

Importantly, I want you to know that we had the pleasure of Tour Guide Nancy (do not know last name but she hails from Brooklyn). She was outstanding! Nancy is extremely knowledgeable about NYC in every aspect and her love of the City was evident. We enjoyed her and we all felt relaxed, comfortable and we had FUN!

We would also like you to be aware of how much we liked and enjoyed our driver, Thiago. He treated us, as we or any customer should be treated, with total professionalism, style, and class. He made us feel very special. And that felt very good!!

Please pass along our appreciation to both Nancy & Thiago.

And last, not certainly not least, Thank you Jason and Romancing Manhattan Tours!!

Best regards, Nancy, Joyce & Gale

Nancy Jablonski

Hi Jason,

I am sorry I haven't responded sooner, things were crazy here.

I want you to know I had a great time!!!!!

Our limo service for the airport was great; both drivers were very nice and professional.

Leo was GREAT; he was easy going and very knowledgeable. He tailored our tour for some of the things we wanted to see and then added some great spots to explore. The concept of a separate driver and tour guide id the only way to go. We did not have to waste anytime finding a parking space, and it allowed us to wander through different areas to meet up with the driver. By the way we enjoyed every stop, and with Leo filling in the details it really educated us to that location. The pizza was wonderful too.

You were right about the NYC Waterway tour. The boat was very warm, they had coffee and hot chocolate, and we got to see Manhattan from a different view.

All the restaurants you recommended spoiled us with good food and service. I think Patsy's was the best overall for food and a New York atmosphere. Thanks for making the reservations.

My daughter and wife want to go back to New York, we feel there is so much more to explore. When we do we will want another tour to see more of New York. I told my friends that there is a Cop and a Starbucks on every corner. I never once felt nervous day or night.

Thanks again for everything, and if want to use me for a reference please do.

Jason,

We had a terrific tour with you guys.

The tours were terrific. Of course I needed another vacation when I got home just to rest up! Seriously, we stayed busy and loved it. My special thanx to Nancy and Jerry on the 4 hour NYC tour. They were incredible and we learned so many fun things about the city. And we enjoyed all the room in the new 22' BMW limo!!!

The events were also terrific....The Radio City tour and show were our favorites. But we loved the museum, the theater, the boat ride, the Top of the Rock, and all that free time shopping, skating, and gawking at the sites!!!!

You did a great job of putting everything together and anytime you need a recommendation just let me know....I've already been bragging about you to everyone who asks about our trip!

Norma Baker

Dear Jason

Sorry it has taken so long to email you but I came back to chaos at work!

We had a fantastic time in New York. The itinery you arranged was perfect. The timings were just right and the service was very good.

Sylvia, our tour guide was brilliant, full of interesting facts and showed us all the things we wanted to see with great advice on where to revisit on foot.

The spa was really, really good. I had the best massage ever from Angela and it was just what we needed to refresh us ready for more shopping!

All the places you sent us were exactly what we wanted, from Pastis for 'eggs benny' to The View for cocktails at dusk. Perfect!!

We will have to visit again as we only scratched the surface. As soon as we've saved up I'll be in tough. Do you cater for families with two small boys?

Thank you again, it was just what we wanted.

Dear Jason,

I did not want to let too much time to pass before I wrote to tell you how much my grandson, Michael and I enjoyed our trip to The Big Apple! Everything was wonderful and I couldn't have asked for anything more.

The Casablanca Hotel was the perfect choice, homey and only steps away from Times Square. Having all of the attractions planned out and the tickets in hand saved us valuable time that we could spend doing other things.

We enjoyed everything, but, of course, the four hour tour was the bomb! Rick, the driver, was knowledgeable and kept us out of streets that he knew would be clogged. Debbie, our tour guide, was so knowledgeable about every street we were on! Even I, a teacher, who had lived in New York, learned some new facts. And, lastly, there's no pizza like New York pizza! Thank you, thank you, thank you for everything!

Our tour of N.Y. with Romancing Manhattan was incredible. My family enjoyed it so very much, even those who had visited the city many times before learned several things. Nancy, our guide, was informative and personable. She did an icredible job as a tour guide and is to be commended.

My family also enjoyed our dinner at Da Nico's. The food was excellent and we really enjoyed the raucous atmosphere. Thanks for the suggestion and for making the reservations.

I appreciate your part in making my family's trip to New York memorable.

Sincerely, Judith Sculley

Hi Jason,

Yes....It was a fabulous trip. There are too many good things to say, so just know that you did a great job for us.

Comments for your consideration - and there are not many:

We did go to Mars, would not recommend it - too cheesy and a tired looking place if you want my opinion.

The rest was perfect. Our Guide Daniel and the driver were just super, although our pizza in the limo did not work out, and that could have been done a little differently, Daniel had his own ideas of how to see NY - mostly by foot - but as a parent, I wanted my little daughter to enjoy the limo and not have to run around so much - that was the only disconnect, but not a major deal, his personality and friendliness as well as knowledge about the city were great. We saw a lot and that was just perfect.

It was a great trip, thank you for your outstanding service, and yes, I will be recommending you to many many people.

Be well, and thanks again for your professionalism, thoroughness, follow through, and attentiveness to our family.

Warm regards,
Mechelle Lawrence

Hi Jason,
Well, we had just the most marvelous time!! I had imagined planning a trip for seven people to New York was going to be a chore, but with your help it was a breeze. The restaurant suggestions were wonderful and the airport pickup was a great idea, thank you. I would have no hesitation is recommending your services highly to everyone.

Our trip was fabulous! Really, everything went great....we were able to navigate around the city without a hitch and saw everything....even had our 15 second of fame twice on national television on the Today Show and Regis and Kelly (pictures with Al Roker and Katie Couric too).

Thank you so much for once again coming through for us.....we did everything on our itinerary and more, it went just as we planned and the tickets/ arrangements were handled beautifully.

I really appreciate your professionalism in making the arrangements for our tour of NYC a time to remember.

Jason,

We had a terrific tour with you guys.

The tours were terrific. Of course I needed another vacation when I got home just to rest up! Seriously, we stayed busy and loved it. My special thanx to Nancy and Jerry on the 4 hour NYC tour. They were incredible and we learned so many fun things about the city. And we enjoyed all the room in the new 22' BMW limo!!!

The events were also terrific....The Radio City tour and show were our favorites. But we loved the museum, the theater, the boat ride, the Top of the Rock, and all that free time shopping, skating, and gawking at the sites!!!!

You did a great job of putting everything together and anytime you need a recommendation just let me know....I've already been bragging about you to everyone who asks about our trip!

Dear Jason,

I did not want to let too much time to pass before I wrote to tell you how much my grandson, Michael and I enjoyed our trip to The Big Apple! Everything was wonderful and I couldn't have asked for anything more.

The Casablanca Hotel was the perfect choice, homey and only steps away from Times Square. Having all of the attractions planned out and the tickets in hand saved us valuable time that we could spend doing other things.

We enjoyed everything, but, of course, the four hour tour was the bomb! Rick, the driver, was knowledgeable and kept us out of streets that he knew would be clogged. Debbie, our tour guide, was so knowledgeable about every street we were on! Even I, a teacher, who had lived in New York, learned some new facts. And, lastly, there's no pizza like New York pizza! Thank you, thank you, thank you for everything!

Hi Jason,

Thanks for your personal attention to our recent tour to NYC with our friends, Gaye and Adrian Brown. We thoroughly enjoyed our guided tour with you and appreciated the extra time you devoted to us, enabling us to see a little extra. We really had a good time, and having you work out all the details for us in advance made the trip much more enjoyable.

We did want to pass along one comment regarding our experience seeing the Jersey Boys at the August Wilson theater. Our seats were wonderfully dead center, but perhaps you didn't know that a good bit happens on a raised level of the stage which really couldn't be seen from our seats under the mezzanine. It's not a complaint at all, but we just wanted to pass that information along in case you weren't aware.

We had excellent service and very good meals at Il Cortille, Tavern on the Green, and The View.

Again, thanks for a great tour and New York experience!

Jason,

We want to thank you again for the trip of a lifetime!! I came home and told my mother about our trip. She and I would like to plan a trip with you to New York when the Freedom Tower is complete (or, more importantly, the memorial pools below)--any idea when that will be? Dave said he chose your company because of the individualized vacation as well as the testimonials from previous clients. If it helps you, I wrote a letter about our experience with your company and I will mail a written copy of it to your office next week.

To whom it may concern, I am writing this letter to share our family's experience working with Romancing Manhattan Tours. We are from Utah and have done very little traveling. My husband surprised me with a trip to New York that he purchased "from a guy over the internet." My first instinct was, “I bet you got scammed.”

We did some research on Romancing Manhattan Tours and even called people who had done business with them in the past. Everyone had positive comments. The trip was arranged several months prior, to go see the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, among other attractions. Jason kept in contact through the months, giving updates and answering all our questions.

As our luck would have it, our trip landed the same time as the writer/stage hand strike and we would not be able to see Lion King on Broadway! However, Jason planned meals at nice restaurants and offered us a refund on the show tickets. He advised us of museums and other great attractions. The trip that Jason helped us design was so good, we didn't even miss the musical.

Jason's knowledge about New York far surpassed our expectations. He is a walking encyclopedia! He shared New York trivia with us that only a New York veteran would know. Other tourists/passer-byers would eavesdrop and were impressed with the information he would share. Anything we wanted to do, see, or ask, we felt comfortable having Jason help us. Our trip to New York, needless to say, was a trip of a lifetime. We were very satisfied with Romancing Manhattan Tours and the individualized attention we were given. In fact, we are already planning another trip to New York!

Our trip was fabulous! Really, everything went great....we were able to navigate around the city without a hitch and saw everything....even had our 15 second of fame twice on national television on the Today Show and Regis and Kelly (pictures with Al Roker and Katie Couric too).

Thank you so much for once again coming through for us.....we did everything on our itinerary and more, it went just as we planned and the tickets/ arrangements were handled beautifully.

I really appreciate your professionalism in making the arrangements for our tour of NYC a time to remember.

Will spread the word again to our friends and family in California and when we plan our next visit to the Big Apple....will give you a call.

Happy Holidays, Diana Lunas & Family
