I have been a licensed guide since 2007, with two missions.
One, I wish the world would feel the same way I do every time I look at one of the famous sights on my tour. By giving the best tour I possibly can I know I get closer to that goal.
Two, I feel that I owe New York City for the opportunity it has given me and millions of others, and my tours are a token of my appreciation.
Guiding is all I do, it's an art, it's my passion and NYC is my love. Every tour is a poem, that the client and I write, no script, fun is a must also. Everyone visiting the Big Apple should be treated with

"When I looked to make interesting pictures in New York, it took me days to locate the vantage points, the proper light conditions and settings for one photo. I wondered how photo-enthusiasts would find the time to scout and find these spots. I thought everyone, from New York or visiting the City could learn how to use its equipment better, while at the same time taking great photos." - citifari was born.
Sam has a degree in engineering and a passion for photography. He was an early adopter of digital photography and has been featured in galleries in Soho and in the City.

Some kids wanted to grow up to be ball players, astronauts or rock stars...my dream was to escort travelers to the best experiences of their lives. New York has everything, but it's a big, bustling, ever-changing place and visitors who find the right guide can cut through the hassle and get right to the best stuff. After decades of guiding and running my own businesses, I've landed on a simple formula to satisfy myself and my guests: Customer service and professionalism is just as important as being knowledgeable and interesting.
My style is conversational and professional with a flair
