i am the "property." i am sophisticated, urbane, charming, good looking and a very funny guy. by the time the day ends, i will have turned you into a person who really knows new york city. you could almost call it a "class" instead of a "tour." but, there is no exam at the end of the day.

Although the tour must be bought in advance, if the client cancels for any reason there is a full refund without fees or surcharges.

During the tour, you will get to taste our famous street food. My treat. You also get a fine tote and maps and brochures.

Myself, my wife and two teenagers spent the day with Peter on his New York tour, and what a great day we had. Peter is funny, generous, informative and has a huge knowledge of the city. It was great to see the real side of the city as opposed to the tourist traps. We really enjoyed the day out and... More

As this was a third time trip to New York I did wonder about using the Gabby Cabby as although we are by no means experts we had done 'the usual suspects' However this was not an issue when you go out with Peter its a tour on a different level as Peter clearly knows all of the city that... More

Our tour with Peter was excellent. He was so informative and he cares about New York. What I loved is that it is not some generic bland tour with a guide with no heart, who could just as well be reading a script. Peter sits with you and talks with you and has a real and meaningful conversations that are... More

Traveled to NYC and on the first day toured with Peter/aka Gabby the Cabby. Even though we missed our first flight, Peter was there when we arrived late. Peter knows the city and its people, is accommodating and shows to us southern girls that Yankees are pleasant, fun and sharp witted. Cab was a newer SUV and clean. The draw... More

My wife and I had just moved to New York in October 2015, and as a Christmas gift my family gave us a gift certificate to take a tour with Peter, the Gabby Cabby. We went on the tour in February and had a really great time. Peter started in the lower East side of Manhattan, took us all the... More

Peter picked us up at our hotel in Newark, and drove us to New York. We visited Manhatten and the Bronx. His knowledge of the city and its boroughs is pretty amazing. He took us by many sites of interest including Wall Street, the UN, Little Italy, Chinatown, Time Square, Yankee Stadium, and the Palisades. It was an informative and... More

We recently completed a trip to New York. We are two women who had just celebrated our 70th birthdays and decided to meet in New York to celebrate. I had previously been to New York several times but, for my friend, it was her first visit. Peter met us at the airport which made everything so easy. It was a... More

Doreen and I not only had a great tour but made a new friend. Peter gave us a nonstop 7 hour run down of NY where he developed a sense of what interested us. We were taken to NY places including all the verbal details. Probably a lot of locals never heard of some of those places we saw. The... More

I had contacted Peter prior to our trip to NYC and since we have been in Manhattan many times Peter recommended his Brooklyn tour, Peter picked us right on time at our hotel and off we went to Brooklyn. We were both surprised at how large Brooklyn is. We saw many places in Brooklyn that we had no idea were... More

I am writing as a 3 time customer of the tour. I took the tour of Manhattan solo while in the city for a medical meeting, repeated the tour the following year for me and 2 sons on their first visit to New York and followed up again about a year and a half later by myself again to do... More
