“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

One of my best decisions in New York city was to attend as many tours I could. I got to the following: (1) SoHo, Little Italy and Chinatown (2) Lower Manhattan (3) Harlem Tour (4) Greenwich Village (5) Brooklyn Heights (6) Midtown Manhattan (7) Central Park.
Two guides, Renee & John, where in charge of 5 of the 7 and they are just excellent guides.
All the guides do a very good job walking us through the city and giving interesting facts and some up-to-date info about what to do next, plus some "gossip" (like which celebrity lives in the building in front us).

“Highlight of NY Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Completed the All in One on Tuesday and Williamsburg on Sunday. We were in NY from Monday to Monday, and the All in One tour on the Tuesday helped shape our itinerary for the rest of the week, with inisghts of where and how to get to places, and great eating venues. Both tours were fantastic and made that way by our tour guide Onel. Onel has a passion for NY which is demonstarted in how he shares his perspective of the city, leaving us with a lasting impression and knowledge of NY that we would have never gained without these tours. Highly recommended and will be sharing these tours as my hot tips for NY with friends and family if they are visiting In the near future!

“Interesting stuff!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

I did the Chinatown, SoHo, Little Italy tour with Onel. He is a native New Yorker with the accent and attitude!! I received an email from him the night before giving clear instructions on where to meet and a pic of him as well. He will tell you the best places to eat, where to avoid, and give you some interesting tidbits about this part of Manhatten. He does not sugarcoat anything but does give you an honest depiction that I really appreciated as a tourist. I will plan another one of these tours the next time I go back to the big city!!

“Midtown Manhattan Walking Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Had a great time on the Free Tour by Foot of New York recently. John was our guide and it was extremely informative with lots of anecdotal snippets to add to the overall experience. Highly recommend this as a good introduction to the Big Apple!

“Great Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We did the Downtown Manhattan bus tour with Onel on Saturday and it was amazing. He was so friendly and knowledgeable and actually knew people whom we got to meet wherever we went. He also gave us all great advice on restaurants, shopping, scams to avoid and detailed subway info about which trains to take and where to get on and off to get to where we wanted to go. I would highly recommend this tour company and Onel in particular.
