Firetruck Tours™: The Best Way to Experience New York City History and Landmarks
Welcome to a new experience in New York City: the ability to ride on a vintage city firetruck. For the first time, the public can see the city from the same vantage point as the 10,000 dedicated members of the New York City Fire Department.
Firetruck Tours™ hopes for the privilege of escorting you on a retired fire engine that proudly served the city for 27 years. It has been meticulously restored and expertly modified to provide a safe, enjoyable ride. This is the only firetruck giving tours of New York with a licensed New York City Sightseeing Guide along with retired and active firefighters as licensed chauffeurs.
Whether you are taking a ride because you want to see New York City sights, learn about the history of our fire department, or you are seeking a private charter for an outing or party, we are able to offer you a special excursion. No other fire apparatus such as Firetruck Tours™ is available and offering licensed and approved tours of the city.
Our tour director is a licensed New York City Sightseeing Guide who has written and edited six books tied to city history. All of our drivers are retired or active city firefighters that share their personal stories and decades of experience on all tours.
Our rig is currently being restored and modified to begin working as a sightseeing vehicle. We expect to be on the road in 2018. Until that time, we are offering walking tours. Follow along on the rig restoration process.
