We were only in the city for two days and wanted to see some of the sights and neighborhoods, as we've done the "touristy" stuff before. We chose the "All in One Downtown" and while it is quite a bit longer (6 hours) than any other tour, you hit a lot of Manhattan. Our tour guide, Juan, was fantastic. Very... More

Fantastic tour. Joel was very knowledgeable and accommodating. It was easy to get started and to end Unfortunately one participant got lost and they did have a cellphone to contact them. Joel did go looking for him. The park was jammed but easy enough to navigate. Joe lead a great guide.

And he told us his favorite places for food etc. Fun tour. We even stopped in a side shop and he convinced half of the group to buy a... More

We took the Soho, Chinatown, Little Italy tour. It was a 2 hour tour, which was just about the right amount of time for us. Our guide, Rene was very good, had a good sense of humor, and provided a lot of insight and good stories about the history, and architecture of the areas, and pointed out several famous eateries...

Second, the tour had a great balance between the sights/history and food of the area, and Third, the cost of the food on the tours was VERY reasonable.

We did 3 of these- trade centre& Brooklyn bridge at night- Times Square at night and Central Park at dusk- all were great- we learnt so much- they are not really free- the guides do this as their job so if you think they did a great job you should pay them. Suitable for people of only moderate fitness- as... More
