Sterling City Tours


Although I've lived in NYC since 1980, my amazingly (charming and) knowledgeable Sterling City Tour guide (entertained and) enlightened me as though I'd never been here before!
Great NYC tour @tom !

We were picked by Tom our tour guide from our Midtown hotel . He asked us what places we,d like to see, and he obliged big time. We got to see a lot of attractions.We,ve been to New York on Several occasions before, and (seen a lot i thought). Toms Tour was Outstanding. We got to see a lot of locations of TV and Movie Bulidings. Other locations he brought to see, he had a photos of the same buliding 90/100 years ago.Excellent guide Local Knowledge of N Y was unreal. Very enjoyable Tour .He dropped us of where we wanted to go at the end of the tour . Nothing was a bother to him. I would highly recommend Sterling City Tours for your Visit to New York. EXCELLENT ALL ROUND.
Had a wonderful time this weekend! We will definitely🤗 schedule more tours with friends!!!!

Founded in 2010, Trip Advisor Award of Excellence, 5 Stars. Our private MERCEDES touring coach, seats 7 guests.You can stand upright inside. We can go down the narrow streets of NYC that large buses can't.

Glass ceiling for full viewing. Our view from the beginning has been to provide visitors with a direct, personal experience of New York City, which in turn will build confidence and self assurance to further explore independently and enthusiastically any aspect or personal interest that captures their imagination. We are a resource that will add value to the New York City Experience.

Operating as usual

Sterling City Tours, known for our exclusive personally guided 5 star tours is also Home to Group Touring. Through an affiliate, we are able to provide you with larger transportation offerings for Schools, Corporate Events or Church Groups.
SCT was proud to be selected to provide transportation and touring for Team Orago, a girls Volleyball team from Varese, Italy. Team Orago was visiting NYC to play 2 exhibition matches, Holy Cross HS, Flushing, NY and Kellenberg Memorial HS, East Meadow, NY.
The Italian team decided to tour with their entire families, and of course Head Coach Giancarlo Chirichella. This tour called for larger upscale transport that we at Sterling City were quick to provide.
While 'on tour' the families visited The Queens Museum, Kaufmann Studios in L.I. City, Times Square, Central Park and the World Trade Center Memorial.
Holy Cross HS also raised $3,000+ from the event to be donated to Memorial Sloan-Kettering for Breast Cancer Research.


Well, the best way to experience the city is to explore its attractions in sections, breaking it up area by area. Manhattan is massive with a lot of things to do, so by dedicating your time to particular locations you will end up with the most efficient use of your limited time here. Here at that's what we offer you. Remember our motto,
"It's our town, but it's your tour! 🗽


THE tour for those who want the BIG picture - North, South, East & West - all around the town, in one day! Specifically: The Cloisters Museum in Northern Manhattan, Battery Park, the Southern tip of the Island, Riverside Drive on The Westside, and The United Nations on The Eastside.
From time to time we’ll be able to hop off and explore a bit on foot as well. e.g. Lincoln Center, Metropolitan Opera House, and The New York State Theater, home to the NYC Ballet. Rather than drive by, we like to explore on foot, to get close to the great. And always... stop for some great food. Soup, salad, sandwich? Pastry, coffee & tea anyone? New York City is a veritable moving feast! Come and join us for a lively, historical and very special day.
A tour like no other…of a city like no other!

STATEN ISLAND, it's Hot !! 🔥🔥🔥
The tour is up on the website at:
Some New Yorkers call Staten Island "The Forgotten Borough" - well, NOT BY US
As one of New York's Five Boroughs, we assure you, and we will show you why, it is definitely not forgotten, and why it is worth the trip.
*Admittedly, it is a bit of an excursion, coming and going, beginning with crossing the
entrance to New York's famed Upper Harbor, by way of New York's biggest suspension
bridge, The Verrazzano Narrows Bridge (featured prominently in the film "Saturday
Night Fever" - featuring the young Disco Dancing John Travolta)
*We will collaborate with you to choose from some of the following sites to create
your personal tour of Staten Island (please allow 6 hours for this tour, travel time included)
Sites and Stops can include:

~ The Alice Austen House and Museum
~ The St. George Neighborhood and Architecture - designated historic district and Staten Island ferry landing
~ The historic CONFERENCE HOUSE (c.1680) site of the failed negotiation by Ben Franklin & John Adams to prevent the Revolutionary War
~ The Moravian Cemetery, site of the Cornelius Vanderbilt Mausoleum (vaults are private, off-limits)
~ Old Richmond Town - a unique survivor, a 19th Century "time machine" and vivid window into 19th century rural life in NYC
~ Sailor's Snug Harbor - best collection of early Greek Revival buildings in America, including: Museum, Chinese Sculpture Garden,
Botanical Garden, beautiful grounds with Harbor Views - a treasure hiding in plain sight - a cultural campus, an oasis!
(note: Indie Film fans will recognize many location scenes from Whit Stillman's film "Damsels In Distress" starring Greta Gerwig)
~ see Richmond County Ballpark, home of the NY Yankees Class A Minor League Ball Club
~ good local pizza, and the best Cookie Bakery in NYC - Staten Island - worth the trip!
(We recommend reserving ahead to plan a visit, some sites subject to availability, open/closed days and times, cost of admission, etc.)

English Navigator Henry Hudson...🇬🇧
was searching for the Northwest Passage, instead he discovered what has become known as The Hudson Valley.
The Lower Hudson Valley of NY is comprised of 3 counties, Putnam, Rockland and Westchester. Just a bit further north are the Mid-Hudson counties of Dutchess, Orange, Sullivan and Ulster.
The Lower Hudson Valley is an area rich in culture, so close to NYC, but you will feel lifetimes away. A tour of the valley is like time traveling. The period (?), 1598, the advent of NY's Dutch colonization. Winemaking, Cheesemaking, Covered Bridges, Majestic Views and lovely 'alfresco' dining, the entire Hudson Valley cherishes it's roots...come and take a visit with us.


Great photo of a 'Salumeria' in the Bronx. We couldn't resist. Could you? :D

Queen NY? Indeed.. 06/06/2019

Remember "It's our town, but it's your tour" ---
Although Geographically the largest by far of New York City’s 5 Boroughs, Queens is often
overlooked by visitors. After all - it’s not Manhattan. Nevertheless QUEENS has so much to
offer that one day is not enough to see it all. With a stunningly diverse population exceeding 2.5
million residents, nearly the entire world map is represented: Central and South America,
Europe, Africa, Middle East, Asia, and more. Appropriately this tour will visit the perfect symbol
for this global population: The Unisphere - a unique monument, restored and repaired, from the
1964 New York World’s Fair.
We are happy to collaborate with you to create a custom tour of Queens as we offer an
opportunity to visit some of the following sites ---
■ Queensboro Bridge (1909) ■ Citi Field / NY Mets
■ Silvercup Studios ■ USTA Open Tennis Complex
■ Kaufman Astoria Studios ■ Louis Armstrong's
Museum and Home
■ Museum of the Moving Image ■ Flushing’s Asian Cuisine & Culture
■ Queens Museum Of Art ■ Panorama Of NYC
■ John Bowne House
■ The Unisphere ■ Forest Hills Gardens
■ Welling Court Mural Project ■ Queens Waterfront
■ Isamu Noguchi Museum ■ Restored Landmark TWA Terminal/JFK, Architect: Eero Saarinen ---
Choose from among some of these sights to create a unique and memorable tour and
together we will explore some of the layers of history and culture, past and present,
of Queens County ~ accommodating, ever changing, and evolving.

affordable public housing, it even has a quaint New England fishing/sailing village. The Bronx has the most
varied natural landscape in New York City...from steep Hudson River cliffs, to sandy
