The Tour guide for the tour never showed and the company refuses to compensate us for our inability to attend a prepaid tour while visiting New York. We spent over an hour waiting, hoping she'd show and another hour on the phone with Expedia trying to get a refund for services not rendered and they stated that the company refused... More

Don't book this tour. I went to NYC with my boyfriend last month and got it as a treat. He was really excited. I booked it via Viator and and seemed fine until the day. The tour guide was very good and more than willing to share what was clearly a passion. Unfortunately, he was very unfit and seemed pretty... More

Beware booking with this operator because most of the info you see online about the tour and when it runs is WRONG. Making a booking with this company is a disaster. There is zero communication between the operator and the agents taking the bookings. All the info on all the different booking agents web sites is wrong regarding tour availability.... More

We took our 9 and 11 year old on this tour. Our 9 year old is a huge superhero fan and the tour was the highlight of his holiday. The tour guide was excellent and knew everything about the comics/films and superheroes. My husband and I thought the tour was a great way to see the city. At the end... More

kind of boring. there were only about 2 interesting stories: black dahlia and houdini. but i think the tour guide was doing his best. it was a 2 hr tour but the points of interest were done in an hour. the other hour was to walk back to where we started.

I really enjoyed the Gangster walking tour. I booked the tour as a surprise for my boyfriend who loves The Godfather, Goodfellows etc., the tour did not disappoint! I haven't seen a single gangster film at all and I thoroughly enjoyed the trip. It was a great opportunity to see Little Italy and China Town. I learnt a lot on... More

My partner and I took the Superhero tour of NYC and it was fun, interesting, and worth doing when you come to NYC. Even if you aren't the biggest comic book and/or super hero movie aficionado, you'll still enjoy learning more about the city and history. Our tour guide had worked for Marvel for many years and in fact he... More

Really interesting - for the biggest comic book fan to someone who's never even picked up a comic book. The tour guide was incredible, very friendly; he was like a walking trivia book. His tour didn't seem rehearsed or like he does the exact same thing every day, he definitely fed off the crowd and tailored it to us. He... More

A tour for comicbook fans! Don't be alarmed by the meeting point, you will find Henley's Universe empty and disused (it's actually moved a couple of blocks away) but you'll still be able to meet there. The tour guide worked in the business himself and takes you on a wonderful tour around the area, with different insights on the creation... More
