Mike was just brilliant - informative, engaging, very friendly & involved all members of the group -asking about any particular areas of interest. I would highly recommend his tours -he does other areas, we tried to go on one the following day but he was fully booked!

I have done another tour by this organization in Europe and it was very below par (compared with the gold standard, "London Walks"). I tried the East Village Food tour this week and was also quite disappointed. The guide was a lovely, outgoing person but the walk agenda was not very inspiring, and her local knowledge was quite limited. Three... More

Just finished this tour with our fabulous guide, Garrett. He was so knowledgeable, added some humour, and made us really understand the history of the districts. He also made sure we always stopped in the shade when he was speaking. Would totally recommend.

My sisters and I were part of a Lower Manhattan/Chinatown/Little Italy/Soho tour. We were joined by people from six other countries, which was delightful. Mike, our tour guide, was full of fun stories and historical facts. He showed us things we would never have seen on our own, such as the first subway station in NYC near City Hall, and... More

This is the way to see New York, if you are going, sign up for these tours. We went on the Greenwich Village tour with Renee, not only is she so knowledgable about the area, she makes it fun. They have a good selection of tours and we will definately book more on our next visit! Thanks Renee!! Don't forget... More

We have taken several of the tours with this company and choose the Harlem tour this time. Our guide as a young gentleman who was educated and informative. We learned several things and enjpyed the tour but not as much as the others. The tour moves very slowly (yes I realize it has to be geared toward people at all... More

My husband and I took four tours with free tours by foot. All of them were fantastic. The first was Soho, little Italy and Chinatown with Garrett. The second was walking the Brooklyn bridge with Dante, the third was walking the High line with Ellen and lastly biking Central Park with Joel. I highly recommend all of these tours. All... More

Did a 2hr tour today with Renee. This is the 4th tour guide I have had in NYC - 3 on Big Bus and 1 Pub Crawl tour. This is by far the best and I wish I never bothered with the others now. The information is current and there is something for everyone. Renee is a walking encyclopedia, I... More

My family took a tour of Central Park with Joel (guide) and about 20 other people. He was well-informed and eager to share his knowledge and love of the park. He gave us background and interesting tidbits of information. Be prepared to walk, as the park it quite large. Good introduction to the beauty of a Central Park. For in... More

My wife & I had an awesome time on this absolutely great walking tour of Soho, Little Italy, and Chinatown. Our guide, Dante Salerno, was energetic and full of information. Even though I'm a little hard of hearing, his voice carried just fine and in our group of about 20 (which I think is near the large end of groups... More
