The depth and breadth of Ike Ilkiw's knowledge of the buildings and prominent figures in lower Manhattan is truly astounding. I took this tour as part of my first trip to NYC, and would happily take it again in another visit.

The tour includes a range of elements--restaurants and tenement buildings that were famous crime scenes,... More

Tour guide Ike Ilkew has a the knowledge of the retired cop he is and the quirkily, humorous personality of a “real” New Yorker. This a 2-1/2 hour walking tour flew by with stops in Little Italy, Chinatown and downtown Manhattan.

Ike is the best. I am a born and raised New Yorker. He brought us to places I never even knew existed. His knowledge was infinite about our city..its criminals, locations, stories, etc. He also knew great little facts about other places that we passed. Truly one of the best tours I've ever taken in my life. Keep in mind... More
