NYC Local Insider

NYC Local Insider

As an NYC tour guide, my job is to ensure people feel comfortable, happy, well-rested, and informed on their visit to the Big Apple.

I love being a tour guide because I get the opportunity to empower travelers to focus their interests on only the attractions, restaurants, and neighborhoods that fit their interests. My advice? Don’t do everything in NYC. Only focus on what you’ll truly enjoy.

That’s why I created NYC in a Day. I want people to spend more time having fun in the city and spending less time worrying if they’ll get lost, miss their subway stop, end up at a dud restaurant, or overpay for theater tickets.

Eventually, you’ll have two ways to take advantage of NYC in a Day:

  • Enjoy the Like a Local “Light” version of the site for free. Take a look around, use the invaluable attraction information, and download the free iconic itinerary.
  • Sign up for the premium Local Insider section for only $9.99 a month.

For now, please consider making a donation of $5 per month if you’re enjoying NYC in a Day. With your donation, you’ll get local insider access to my email list that includes tips on what you can expect each day in the city, how to plan like a pro, and discounts on items in the store.
