What you'll do

Organizing a vacation to New York City for yourself, or a corporate team? Then let’s chat!

Save yourself hours of research by joining this online Experience where I’ll answer all your questions about NYC, or even arrange your whole stay in the city.

*Don't see a time that suits you in my calendar? Message me to organize another time that suits

As a veteran Airbnb Experience hosts I have welcomed over 15,000 guests on my five Experiences, with 1700+ 5-star reviews.

From food and drink recommendations, neighborhoods to stay in, and everything in between, I've got you covered. I want you to enjoy the city like a local, and not as a tourist.

We’ll begin by discussing how to make the best use of your time. Is it pizza, bagels, or rooftop cocktails? Museums and art galleries? Exploring Central Park? Then I’ll share my hidden gems and NYC secrets that best suit your interests. Lastly, we’ll talk about where to stay, public transport, tipping rules, etc.

If you want a one-on-one customized itinerary, please book a private class. Otherwise, we’ll speak more generally in a public session.

**This is a 'per person' online experience. Please select "Private Group" if you want to meet one-on-one.

***Get a taste of New York before your trip by joining me on my online sandwich cooking class 'A Sandwich Masterclass with a Pro' (also on Airbnb. Great for team building!)

Ben was a great host. He was super informative for my upcoming trip to Brooklyn. Looking forward to it even more after this experience.

I have a great to do list for NYC! Ben answered all of my questioned and tailored suggestions to my specific requests. This will be the 3rd time in NYC and a unique experience:0) He also pointed me towards some other Air B'B Experiences that look amazing.

Ben does an excellent job personalizing trips to the needs of the travelers. This is the second time my family has used Ben’s knowledge in planning a trip. Our first trip was so well planned we are back to plan our second trip.

We've been to NYC so many times so are looking for something new. Ben over delivered ideas for us. He was prepared and very congenial.

Totally worth the cost - feeling 1,000x more prepared from the trip. Great even if you’ve visited before to make sure you get a local perspective!
