Our Story

Fifteen years ago Liz and her husband Henry took a trip to Amsterdam. A family friend told them to look up a guy named Ashley, and they agreed to meet for one beer. One beer turned into many beers, and Ashley spent the next three days leading a spectacular insider’s tour of the city, of places and people Liz and Henry never would have encountered on their own. We’ve all been amigos ever since, as we settled into our lives: Liz and Henry in New York City, and Ashley in Dublin and Madrid. Recently, as an English teacher in Spain, Ashley encountered students who wanted to travel to New York, hoping to practice their English with regular Americans, and also to get a taste of the Big Apple from natives who knew the insider nooks of the city. As longtime residents, Liz and Henry know a lot of smart New Yorkers who would be excellent guides. So we decided to get together again, this time as proprietors of NYAmigo. Our goal is to help people from all over the world having a unique, one-of-a-kind New York City experience. We hope you’ll join us!
