    David was a fun and professional guide. He was knowledgeable and funny. We enjoyed our time with him on the tour. He gave great directions to help navigate the crowd. I appreciated receiving an email with instructions about our meeting point prior to the tour.

    Tim was such a personable person who not just showed us the significant monuments and areas, he made us understand how it must have felt during those excruciating days of, and after 9/11.

    First time back to NY on a solo trip after I’d last visited as a kiddo. NY is clearly massive with what can seem like an overwhelming list of things you want to cover especially when you have limited time. This tour was perfect in the sense that it’s an excellent start to your trip taking you through the essential sights and getting tips for the rest of your trip depending on your preferences to cover the other places.

    Mindy C was our tour guide and man was she awesome! A real NewYorker who from the offset was phenomenal. She texted before the tour to make sure I knew where the meeting point was. She kept a good pace as we went through the different tour stops and stopped at the good coffee spots! Clearly speaking into her speaker so you can hear her even if a few steps behind the group. She was more than happy to answer any question I had no matter how silly it was.

    I don’t think I would’ve made the most of the rest of my brief trip without her help.

    Thanks again, Mindy!

    This tour is the highlight of visiting New York City! To walk where my ancestors walked was amazing. I climbed to the crown of the Statue of Liberty which had spectacular views and was worth the effort. The views from the top were incredible, amazing, and birds’ eye!

    Guide was very knowledgeable. As a native New Yorker, even I learned a lot.
    A fun thing to do. Well worth it.

    The food tour was amazing and a highlight of our trip. I was not that familiar with Greenwich village and it was a good day to learn about the area. The only negative was it was chilly but that’s part of visiting NYC in March.

    Funny and very interesting to discover detailed stories about early NYC and little Italy historical places.

    Easy and pleasant walk that helps to understand what was the atmosphere in the past .

    Our sympathetic guide was very clear and knew perfectly this part of Manhattan .

    A very good idea to get a tour after the dinner.

    This was a last minute choice for a birthday, do the tour and then dinner in little italy. The tour exceeded expectations. Well done, good narration and information. The visit to the Catacombs came at the end of the tour and was pretty cool.

    Had a fantastic tour of the Met with Cherie , our tour guide. She was very knowledgable, personable and funny. She of course hit the hilights of the museum but also included some not so popuar/strange pieces which gave the tour a more personalized feel. She was great. The entry /ticketing process was smooth and easy and we had no trouble finding her at the start of our tour. There was good communication ( received a text from her the day before stating the tour meeting oint and time).
