This tour was a once-in-a-lifetime adventure! Kennedy, our photographer guide was so much fun! New York would have been a much different experience (and far less awesome) if we were just sightseeing by ourselves. Having your photos taken there, and being shown around by a native who truly knows and loves the city made it a more memorable and engaging experience. Also, these are the types of pictures you really can't take by yourself, I wouldn't even try! When I look back at the photos I'll remember how much fun we were having. It makes everything more memorable. Highly recommended!

Our first PhotoTrek tour was in 2003. On that tour, I proposed. We took a second tour on our honeymoon the following year because we loved the pictures, the tour and the personal touch Marc gives so much.

When we decided to come back to Mew York with our three girls, we knew we had to do another tour with Marc. I can’t tell you how thankful My wife and I are to have these memories documented with our girls.

We had to reschedule our travel twice due to Covid and Marc was incredibly accommodating. On the day of our scheduled tour it was raining, but Marc still took the time to come meet us- gave us a refresher on using the subway, recommend some restaurants and got in a few pictures. We rescheduled for the next day and the experience was amazing.

If you find yourself in New York, schedule some time with Marc. So great to have a personalized tour and photos with everyone in them. Extremely quick turn around with the photos and they were incredible.

Marc was great to work with! Mark took my wife, our 3 year old daughter, and I on a 2 hour photo tour around NYC. We were able to get through a lot of the main attractions in the city, and the photos turned out great! He is a wealth of knowledge about NYC/Brooklyn, and helped us get some really fantastic photos while we were in town that would have otherwise been impossible. His communication prior to our tour, and immediately after (including delivery of all the digital prints) made the whole process a breeze. I would highly recommend Marc!!

I love pictures of our trips and vacations and was pondering getting a personal photographer for our trip to New York. The pictures I saw of the Brooklyn Bridge sold it for me. After booking the tour, Marc promptly contacted me and we discussed points of interest we wanted to see and how it would work out. His communication was excellent, we arrived at our meeting point early and lo and behold he was there already. We received his attention the entire time and he took great care of us. Our small group consisted of myself, the wife and our 14 yr old niece who was in hog heaven that she was having her picture taken by a professional. I had requested pictures of us together as a family, then my wife and myself and then finally the niece all by herself. Marc accommodated us with no issues. Marc took us around to the places we wanted to go and he also provided a brief history lesson about our stops. After the tour we were beyond satisfied, ....and then we received the pictures. Oh my the pictures were absolutely AMAZING!!! Right now we are trying to decide which ones to have enlarged. We went to Central Park two days later, I wish we had Marc with us then but hey we plan on returning and when we do we will arrange to have our pics taken by him. If you're on the fence about getting a photographer, DO IT, it's worth the time and money! Thanks Marc!

Marc was fantastic, informative, knowledgeable and super friendly. Made the day really worthwhile. The best way to see parts of the New York City and take home some great memories! This tour was so amazing that it combined a tour of the city, facts about the area, tips on where I should go during my time in NYC, and some wonderful photos! The tour was interesting from the minute I got to 42nd str until he left me at the Dumbo. Even when he was leaving me he made sure I knew how to get back. I would recommend this tour to everyone!

Hi

I booked this trip 2 months before my actual date and paid 2 months before my trip and was very excited but ended with disappointment. I want to share an honest opinion, that I am not satisfied with the pictures, background and coverage, and the number of pictures and the tour. There were a few photos with multiple black and white images of the same photo. I was not expecting all this from the tour. They booked my trip with someone else and sent someone else on the day of the tour with a low-quality camera and with fewer photography skills.

I booked the tour with Marc Samuels and he informed me the night before the tour that he is taking someone else's tour which is not justifiable by any means. If he was not willing, he should inform at the time of booking or at least 3 days before the tour, so that I can book with someone else. I am still thinking and very sad, how he can drop me off and take another tour? I traveled all the way from Asia and very disappointed with your behavior toward me. I wasn't expecting all this from worth $209. I am a student, I saved from the last 6 months for this tour and in the end, I got what I am not satisfied with at all.

I thought this company is a professional one but I was wrong. Not a professional company can do this after a commitment for the last two months.

I hope and wish that no one else experiences this. Will never recommend it to anyone.

Thanks!

Greatly regret the experience of this individual. Have worked with Kennedy for 15 years. He always receives wonderful reviews and as he was trained by me I know he gives a wonderful, insightful tour with excellent photos. Not going to go line by line of the review but every tour is given with great pride knowing we are showcasing NYC and creating priceless photo memories, FYI Price reference was a discount given to a single traveler.

My favorite souvenirs of a trip are always the photographs, and it was great to run around NYC with Marc and not have to worry about being behind the camera or ask strangers to take our photo. We have been to NYC many times, and Marc was more than willing to customize our tour. We did Times Square, SoHo, shots on the subway, misc. places along the way, and the highlight, which was the Brooklyn Bridge. Since we were in town for the Billy Joel concert at Madison Square Garden that night, Marc even brought us to MSG and took our photo in front of the marquee featuring Billy Joel. The next day Marc sent over 100 photos. Download was a snap. I definitely recommend this tour. It is a fast two hours but fun, different, and I don't know of another tour where you get to take home dozens of photos. Just be prepared as it is NYC after all and you'll often need to be quick to get the shot. Thanks Marc!

Wow and thank you!! I booked a PhotoTrek tour our first day in NYC and it was perfect!

First off it was a great tour and we learned a lot about NYC. We went to Time Square, Central Park, Brooklyn Bridge, and road the subway.

But the most impressive thing was the pictures. This guy is a legit photographer. He had such cool picture ideas and his timing was out of this world. For example - we were on the packed Brooklyn Bridge and he snapped pics that made it appear that we are completely alone. My mind is blown.

The attached pics are ones he took with my phone (almost all pics he takes with his own professional camera).

Marc was absolutely fantastic. This is the best way to see the city, worth every penny and then some. We booked our session on first full day we where there, Marc gave us great advice on navigating so when we where done we had no problems, we where a lot more comfortable in the city for rest of our stay. And you get amazing shots you will never get with a selfie stick. Best purchase of the whole trip!

I brought my toddler and 4 other family members to take memorable pictures on their first trip to NY. Marc did no disappoint! He was extremely friendly and was a pleasure to hang out with for a few hours. He helped us with the subway which made me feel so much better about traveling the city. The shots are AMAZING and I am so happy I booked this. I am the usual photographer for all our outings so it was really nice to let the professional handle it. Take away the stress and book this, you won't regret it.
