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

You'll take this tour with Paul, a comic book artist himself, and with an encyclopaedic knowledge of all things Marvel and DC. You'll hear about the origins of the many characters, why Superman has a cape, where the Green Goblin lived and many other anecdotes. You'll get some insight, not just into the drawing process and comic business, but how... More

We did the Superhero tour of NYC with Paul. What a great way to see New York. What started out as something we did for the benefit of our 11yo son, was brilliant for everyone. Paul is a born n bred New Yorker, with a great passion not just for comic characters, but also New York, and his insights into... More

I signed up for the Superhero Tour of New York for Friday, March 15th. I showed up fifteen minutes before the start time and waited a half-hour afterward, and no one ever showed up. I never got a call, text, or email telling me the tour was cancelled even though they had my contact info. I contacted the company twice... More

I turned up for the New York in the Movies Tour a quarter of an hour before it was supposed to start and waited until half an hour after the start time. No tour guide turned up. Waiting for a response from The Celebrity Planet.

We have just returned form New York and have got to say, this was a highlight!!! Paul was full of information and was more than happy to answer any of our questions. Usaully these tours are very rigid but he was more than happy to indulge us, especially as my daughter is a super hero nut. Would definitely do again.
