However, the enthusiasm and knowledge of our guide, made it worth it- and the experience of seeing the real gospel service with a real engaged audience, compensated for all the cold weather. We saw... More

This is the best tour I've ever been on and it's all down to Ludie! Ludie has to be one of the best tour guides in the world - an incredible story teller and infectious enthusiasm.

Marcos did a great job on our walk across Brooklyn Bridge. He discussed the history of the Bridge revealing bits of information but keeping us in suspense as the stories unfolded at each stop. He was very knowledgeable and entertaining.

I went on the NYC Slavery and Underground Railroad Tour which happened to fall on a extremely cold snowy January day.

We really enjoyed this tour. It was an amazing experience, thanks to our guides Katherine and Alain. We saw the Apollo Theater, Striver’s Row, and the Abyssinian Baptist Church. We really enjoyed a neighborhood tour of the cultural capital of Black America and experience the soulful sounds of gospel music. Even if it was very cold, it really worth!

Allie (I am not sure if it is well written) made an spectacular tour telling all the stories about the neighbourhood and all the history. She is lovely and I recommend her 100%. Thank you Allie!

Loved this tour so much. Our tour guide Katie was amazing. Her enthusiasm was contagious and her knowledge of the towns history made it incredibly interesting. She provided us with many priceless photo opportunities of the New York skyline and also offered advice on great places to visit in Brooklyn. Thanks Katie. Definitely recommend.
