My family from China / Hong Kong came to NYC for a few days for my wedding. Some of them had visited NYC before, while others had never even been to the US. Some spoke English, but most spoke Mandarin. Some relatives were younger, and liked walking tours, but others were much older, and could not walk more than 3 blocks.
Stretch-a-Leg Travel somehow figured out how to satisfy all my family members and their various needs and interests. They communicated with me in a timely manner, and we were able to figure out a super customized tour that was interesting to me (a 10yrs+ New Yorker) and still fun and engaging for my relatives (including 70yr-old aunts/uncles).
We were able to get a private shuttle, so we could hit parts of Manhattan and Brooklyn, with a balanced amount of time walking vs. riding in the van. Our guide Tony had so many interesting facts, and was super professional to my family. My family can be very picky, but all of them were impressed with our guide, and everyone felt they got to know the city a lot better, and had a great time :) Would definitely recommend this company to anyone wanting a tailored tour of the city.

In the early summer of last year, my wife and I went to New York to visit my daughter, son-in-law and little grandson. In our spare time, the daughter recommended that Tony to lead us in New York to visit a few off-the-beaten-path places in New York.
Compared with China's long history, these relics in New York are really nothing spectacular. However, by Mr. Chen's explanation and introduction, some of the historic events of how New York was funded still let us had an immersive feeling which brought us close to those historic events.
Visit some of the well-preserved sites, standing more than 100 years ago is still beneficial to the benefit to the people living today on the grand project, one could not help but to the United States ancestors awe.
Mr. Chen's understanding of the history of the United States in detail, explain the fascinating, and we truly benefited from the tour we did with him. Comparing with those type of tours rushing through the sights, his tour is very different. Tony offers an relaxed, in-depth tour to allow his visitor understand New York and the United States. Tour of this style should definitely worth recommending.

(We did) a half day tour and the itinerary was very well planed. For us the highlight of the tour is definately the commentary and stories from our guide. Our guide has a calm voice, yet cordial manor. His commentary was rich in content and covers history, humanities, architecture, art topics. Very enjoyable! We enjoyed having someone able to speak Beijing dialet and that made us felt particularly cordial! Tony is very professional and very good temperament!
New York definable has great choices for food, and Tony is definitely a gourmet who can be pointing you to great places if you tell him what you feel like to eat. We tried his recommended restaurant information rich, serious, intimate! ... We certainly would like (recommend his service), since he is such a rare professional!

Tony Chen was instrumental in the success of our most recent Spring 2017 Executive Program that New York University's School of Professional Studies Schack Institute of Real Estate hosted on behalf of the China Urban Realty Association (CURA).
As Program Coordinator, Tony and I worked closely in the weeks prior to the start of the event and during the program to facilitate communication between us and our Chinese guests.
We will continue to employ Tony's services in any future events in which we are host delegations from China.
