I was taking my daughter to NYC for her sixteenth birthday and wanted a truly memorable experience. I found the Vayable site by accident and found Giovanni. She is interested in photojournalism and this looked like a great fit. I contacted Giovanni and he worked with our schedule to find a time that would work (which wasn't easy). He took the time to find out her interests and geared our tour in that direction. We saw parts of the city we would never have ventured on our own. Saw things in a different way than the usual tourist type photos. This was the New York we were looking to experience and Giovanni made it happen. My daughter got some amazing pictures. He gave her a lot of tips to help her in her photography. Knowing her interest he brought an old camera to show her how it had been done in the past. He then showed her how to use it and then he took some amazing photos of her with that camera. We really enjoyed learning about the city and how it is constantly evolving. Having an interest in photojournalism we were very interested in hearing about his career and enjoyed his stories. Very personable and enjoyable tour guide. Best part of our vacation!
