Everything you wanted to know about NYC Boroughs and more.

Our tour guide Sebastian was very informative and personable. Great information, facts and insights. It’s a shame some people didn’t tip.
We had a great tour - definitely recommend!
Marius_S, May 2024
Our tour guide Sebastian knew a lot about the different areas and it was great to see more of NY besides Manhattan.
Really different way to see New York
Mark_S, May 2024
Fantastic tour - really different experience from many that you might think of trying while in New York. It was great to see another side of the city away from Manhattan where real New Yorkers live and work. Our tour guide Sebastian was excellent - really informative and entertaining. We saw and learnt so much about the boroughs it was hard to recall it all! Would highly recommend if you're interested in seeing more than just the usual tourist spots.
Glad I did this tour
Kay_N, May 2024
I’m glad I did this tour as I am now fully aware that these areas that we went to are NOT for tourists. Nothing wrong with the places that we visited, but they are for residents, not bus loads of people. We visited local coffee shop, that was a regular ‘corner shop’ that sold coffee. The shop was very small, but 3 coach loads of tourists were shipped in whilst we were there. This is not something for tourists! We were shown a wall art. The item that I cannot get over was that we were taken through an area where Jewish people live. This community was spoken about in great detail by the tour guide. We were not ‘shown’ any other community - I felt uncomfortable at the length of time this ‘talk’ went on for.
We really enjoy all the...

Nice trip. Would have liked to stop longer at some scenes and that the guide would have come with us.
Highly recommended
olimpia_m, Dec 2023
This tour was memorable! Milly, our guide, made it special by sharing her experience as newyorker, showing us the top attractions and giving great recommendations. A great way to get a taste of 4 districts of NYC with a limited time investment. I suggest to do this at the beginning of your NY trip so you can plan further itineraries/visits based on what you like the most.
Highly recommended
Katie_R, Oct 2023
Wonderful tour. Great and extremely knowledgable tour guide. Absolutely loved learning the history of the different areas of New York. I saw so many places I never would have thought to visit and I liked how she broke stereotypes or New York shown in movies or on tv. Highly recommended!
lapse in customer care
Louis_F, Oct 2023
Operator refused to refund price of tour even though subway train problems prevented us from getting to meeting place on time to participate in tour. We called the phone number provided by operator to tell them what was happening, but phone rang and rang and ultimately went to voicemail. A little individualized inquiry and a customer service type of mentality would be appreciated.
Response from Host, Oct 2023
Dear Louis As stated on your confirmation voucher Out of respect to the other customers, the waiting time at a certain pick-up location will be no more than 10 minutes. We understand that traveling in NYC can be unpredictable and that is why we advise on your confirmation voucher to please show up at the pick-up location 10 minutes prior to pick-up time. We would like to make things right and invite you back to experience the amazing tours that Royal City Tours has to offer
Great tour of the New York City Boroughs
LeAnn_M, Oct 2023
We loved being able to stop in the various boroughs and experience them locally. We also liked the tour director/driver's narration about what we were seeing.
The most beneficial tour we took
David_S, Sep 2023

Great experience
Mireille_C, Jul 2023
Guide was knowledgeable. He provided useful information, ample time to pause and take photos, and was entertaining.
Off the beaten path
Catherine_M, Nov 2022
Great way to see some key spots out of Manhattan, but also get a great view of the Manhattan skyline!
Entertaining and interesting tour - well worth it!
Lorraine_Y, Jul 2022
This tour was excellent. Our guide (Milly) was entertaining and really well informed. We found the visits to the various NY boroughs extremely interesting. There were plenty of opportunities to get out of the minibus and see some real life and take photos. This was definitely a highlight of our stay. We learned more about various areas of Manhattan and visited Harlem, the Bronx, Queens and Brooklyn. Would definitely recommend.
Borough Tour
edlindamartinez, Jul 2022
I enjoyed The Apollo and The Bronx Murals. My only comment is that she only showed/spoke about the negative of The Bronx, while gushing about how great Queens is. The Bronx has some very nice areas as well as run down areas. It left a bad taste in some if the Europeans, even scared them into asking if we could please leave the area. My recommendation is to conclude the Bronx portion of the tour with a tour of the nice areas: Fordham University, the Bronx Botanical Gardens for example.
6* Experience
Vicky_R, Jun 2022
What an amazing tour!!! Made all the better by Millie (in fact she probably was the reason it was sooo good!!) Millie's Knowledge, information and facts were outstanding. She never stopped telling us incredibly interesting things and answered any and many questions!! Seeing Bronx, Queens, Williamsberg, Harlem and Brooklyn and the sights, sounds and cultures has enhanced our time in NY and made the experience feel rounded!!! Tour balanced driving and hopping out perfectly and some fun food stops too. Recommend sooo highly and thank you again Millie x
MaraJos_S, Mar 2024
Un tour muy recomendable. La guía, Mili, fue encantadora y muy profesional. Podéis ver los distintos distritos de Nueva York en una mañana. Las empanadas buenísimas!
