I had been to New York before, but never done a walking tour. We did the Central Park tour, and were amazed by the knowledge and enjoyment that Max was able to bring as part of the tour. The group is a good size, and Max takes the time to interact with everyone.
We enjoyed Central Park so much we booked a private tour of Brooklyn Bridge, and had an even better time. It really felt like we were being shown around by a friend.
Max recommended great places to eat (and drink!) and gave us directions to the subway and which lines would take us back to our hotels. I will definitely do another tour with Max next time I am in New York.

We spent Easter weekend in NYC and this tour was a highpoint. As much as we love to walk (aimlessly) around the city, in this tour (VillageSampler) Max really shows how it should be done. He has thought of it all, just walk along and enjoy every minute. Our daughter is 11 and she loved it too, there are breaks, treats and lots of enjoyable facts along with a great narrative from Max. When we return to NYC we look forward to walking with Max in Central Park and the Brooklyn Bridge. Max's tour is the gold standard!

We signed up for the Village Sampler and we really enjoyed the walk and Max as a guide, so much so, that we joined Max on the Central Park Tour later that same day.

So all in all we spent a wonderful 6 hours under Max's expert guidance.

Little niceties like a map with nearby restaurant recommendations tops it all off

A great way to experience NYC and warmly recommended.

We have been on other walking tours before and generally the same problem occurs - there are too many people and you can't hear what's being said.
Having said that, we were pleasantly surprised with this one - initially we turned up for the Brooklyn Bridge walk - the group was small and regular stops were made along the way so that we could listen to the commentary. Our host was outgoing and knowledgeable and made an effort to talk to everyone personally during the tour.
The route followed was extremely interesting - the walk through Brooklyn Heights was fascinating as we were told stories that highlighted the historical importance of the area.
In fact we were so impressed that we signed up for the Central Park walk on the following day.
Once more we turned up and were led on a well thought out route through the park that managed to cover many sights in a relatively short period. ( I have been on another company's tour and didn't see half of the things we saw )
These tours are real value for money and you get a lovely host thrown as well.

Max is a perfect host, very very friendly and easy going. The three hours go by really quickly and you're almost dissapointed when the tour finishes. We took the village tour and learned many very interesting details about this district.
Thanks, Max!
