We booked a private tour of New York City with guide Ammiel Simon. Though he is more than willing to guide you through the usual tourist haunts, you must allow him to share with you the experience of the city as seen through the eyes of one whose heart and soul IS New York. Ammiel's first-hand experiences, extensive archives, and personal insights provide the subtext...aesthetic and inspiring...at times, heart-rending and disquieting... It will stay with you long after the tour has ended. Gail McGlathery and Jim Lange Clearwater, Florida

From Our Editors

If there's one thing Ammiel Simon knows intimately, it's the sprawling metropolis of New York City. The certified city tour guide has been living there since 1960 and has performed on the stages of Lincoln Center, Madison Square Garden, and Carnegie Hall. Seeing the landscape morph and the trends ebb and flow over the last 50 years has given Simon a true insider's perspective on this massive, cacophonous mishmash of people and neighborhoods.

Simon crafts a tour experience that eschews the conventional recitation of factoids for an authentic glimpse into the Big Apple's thriving, pulsating core. Although he proudly totes passengers through tourist staples such as Broadway, Wall Street, and Ground Zero, he never forgets his philosophy while leading these customized jaunts: "While New York may mean different things to different people, it is most of all a place where people live."
