Spent 3 days with my daughter in New York for her 21st Birthday. First of all I would like to congratulate Debbie M for the emotional and interesting tour. Such an eye opener. It really touched us both. This tour is highly recommended. We have not only learned some interesting things but have made a new friend too. Please don't... More

We went on The Greenwich Village Pub Tour a couple weeks ago while traveling in New York City with Michael J. We learned about the whole beat generation writers, musicians and had good drinks at very distinct pubs. I've never seen a piano bar quite like the one we saw on that tour!

My cousins and I recently took the World Trade Center tour with Michael J. We originally were going to go on our own, but were glad we decided to go with a tour guide. Michael was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic. It turns out he teaches in the New York school system, and if his classes are anything like his tours,... More

The WTC Heroes Walking Tour was the absolute low point of our trip to NY. Tour guide (I think her name was Sandy??) turned up later than specified time with no apology & claimed we were not on her list even though we had to email them directly to book (my reply to my booking request was literally just 'OK,...

I joined this tour on 4th Dec, and our tour guide was Debbie, brilliant guide and very very professional too. The tour was set on a great start with a little prank (100% harmless) that shows a funny side of her, and then she led us to a full knowledge of what happened on 911, history before and aftermath with...
