A great day in New York
, May 2022
Gary was a great guide, knowledgeable, witty and made sure at all times the members of the group stayed together. A long trip but the time flew by with chances to catch your breath with the subway ride, ferry trip and lunchtime stop. Got to see parts of NY we might not have discovered and learnt a lot of history too. Thoroughly enjoyed this trip.
Fantastic kick-off for your New York trip

Linsey was a very humorous, warm-hearted guide and showed us many places on this 6 hr tour. The little stories she shared made it an exceptional tour. She was well organised and we were never lost. I loved to spend this day with her.

Gary was amazing and even when the weather was an issue he found ways to keep us all engaged and entertained. Highly recommend this tour.
Well worth it!

Fantastic tour, Gavin was so knowledgeable and saw loads on our ‘to do list’. Well worth doing - thoroughly recommended!
NY City Excursion
, Apr 2022
The tour is packed with a lot of places to see and visit that one probably would not necessarily see and learn about during a visit. Our tour guide (Mary) was excellent. She gave us facts that ensured we would remember what we had seen and done. The tour was 5 miles long, so that was a bit much for me, but that was because I had knee surgery 8 months ago and I failed to wear my brace. However, I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
Fun first time experience
, Apr 2022
Our guide Bill was fun and engaging. He was knowledgeable about the history and the city! There is alot of walking so wear comfortable shoes and dress for the weather.
Great stories!
, Mar 2022
Rob was a great tour guide. He was friendly and was the best storyteller! He really brought the city and its history to life. We had time for a nice lunch and even though I was tired by the end, the pace was not too fast overall. I would highly recommend for first-time visitors.

Rob was our tour guide and he made the day so smooth and not stressful. First visit to NYC and with my daughter, we absolutely loved this tour. Rob has a kind personality and an abundance of history that made our day fun and educational! My 17 year old and I both enjoyed this day! Lots of walking but so worth it!
Wonderful and informative

Jen was our tour guide and she was absolutely amazing!!! Funny, thoughtful, smart and so smart! She made the walking so much easier because you forgot how much you were doing. Worth every penny!
Definitely worth it
, Sep 2021
This tour was so good. Jenn was knowledgeable and engaging. Definitely recommend this tour if you are in New York for a few days and want to capture most of the well-known areas in the day. I also learned how to navigate the subway system on my own to get around the city which was an added bonus!
Great Tour. Tom rocks!
, Aug 2021
My family (to include two teens) and I had a great time on this tour! Tom was a wonderful tour guide - he set a great pace and added just enough to keep the group entertained while ensuring we saw so many of the top New York attractions. Thanks Tom!

Clair is an excellent guide, I did multiple guided tour in last 2-3 days, and most of the time, it is just waste of money, but Clair was totally different. She took all the time to explain everything, also she is knowledgeable in her subject, and we enjoyed the whole tour with her
