I took a walking tour on my latest NYC trip. I've been to NYC numerous times but certainly learned the most while on this walking tour. Ted gave facts about the city that I've never heard of before. I enjoyed the hours spent with the tour. It gave me a new viewpoint on this wonderful city!

This tour is fantastic. Our guide was a native New Yorker who knows more about the city and its history than I could have imagined. He is very personable and blends in endless jokes and wit with a steady stream of information while walking through the neighborhoods in the city. He knows the secret spots and shortcuts in every neighborhood... More
