My wife and I did the 'Landmark Explorer' tour with Max as well as the 'Behind the Wall' tour with Ryan. We had a lot of fun and for 1st time New York visitors it was just what we hoped for. We especially enjoyed the various accents that Ryan did as he told us the stories of immigrants coming to... More

Josh, thanks for booking two our of tours during a very cold week in NYC. I'm really glad that you and Candice enjoyed your time with me and Ryan despite the cold. And his accents are a LOT better than mine (I tried an Irish accent once and was told by a smiling customer never to do it again). More

Rodney's tour of the Chrysler Building, Rockefeller Center, NY Library, and Times Square was fun, informative, and fascinating. I felt like we got the real inside scoop of the New York's rich history that we never would've otherwise gotten on our own or any other tour. We went on a bus tour and several self-guided excursions, and this walking tour... More

We took the Landmark Explorer tour with Rodney on a brutally cold Valentines Day! The tour itself was exceptional and if you like history and want to get a better understanding of these iconic landmarks then this is the only way to it. Rodney was a great guide and host and did everything to make the tour interesting and knew... More

Having done 3 tours with Max, Danielle and Rodney which were brilliant in Nov 2013,I again wanted to do walking tours and chose City Rover Walks again and they are the prefect choice. This time I met Ryan while doing the Behind Wall Street tour which was on a bitterly cold day but despite this Ryan kept us moving with... More

Pam, last year you were our first customer from Tasmania. This year, you were our second customer from Tasmania. Thank you so much for flying 24 hours around the globe to get to us and to tour with us again in freezing weather. All of us really enjoyed your company, and I'm particularly grateful that you introduced me to wombats! More

Having looked online at the tours offered by CityRovers we liked the sound of them all! - but in January there is a limited schedule, so we went with Landmark Explorer led by Rodney. What made this such a good tour was Rodney's friendly manner, breadth of knowledge and entertaining delivery. This tour covered the main midtown sites of Chrysler,... More

Our group of 6 did the Highline Chelsea area tour with Max in November. Max was exceptionally knowledgeable and personable and despite the weather being extremely cold it was a very fun and informative day. Max responded very quickly to my email asking about the various tours and availability for the days we were in New York. He was helpful... More

There were no Brooklyn Bridge Tour in the schedule for late December, when I checked, so I emailed Max. He was very prompt to reply and scheduled a tour in which we booked immediately.

Hi Lily, thank you so much for your wonderful review. I am thrilled that you enjoyed the Brooklyn Bridge Tour with my colleague, Ryan, despite the cold/wet day. I am only sorry that you were unable to join one of our other tours, but I hope you will come back in the not-too-distant future. More

Behind the Wall was my fourth tour with CityRover - and once again it was the highlight of my trip to NY. Our guide Ryan upheld the CityRover tradition of making the city come alive through narratives. He didn't just throw out dates and facts, but shared the stories behind the places we visited, making each stop unique and memorable.... More
