The people behind Hines Tours LLC

We are a small team of dedicated people who all have a passion and a love for nature and history.


We are committed to protecting our region’s natural resources and improving outdoor recreation opportunities for everyone, especially for New Yorker’s who are unaware of the many amazing beautiful natural areas within just a few hours of drive from NYC. We believe this is best achieved through education and providing a hands on experience for everyone.

We do our best and go far in our research to find remarkable natural and historic tour destinations/activities for you to enjoy.


We believe that our regions scenic areas in form sensitive ecosystems, wildlife habitats and historic sites, should be respected and protected forever for generations to come.





We all practice the outdoor ethics of “leaving no trace”, which basically is the principle of “leave nothing but footprints – take nothing but photos".
