“Thanks again Max!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Thanks Max again! It was our 4th walking tour with you and we still love the way you´re telling those interisting details from everyting. Three hour seemed to run so fast although it was a quite cold day to walk..I can really recommend these tours to everybody!

“I want to give it not just a 5, but a 10!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Max is the best ever. We booked the village sampler as soon as the dates were open. A day later Max emailed that he blew it, that was hid wedding day. So he moved us to the Beer, food and history tour and ate the price difference, as Max put, I'll be buying you a beer. We had several communications with Max over the next couple of months. Once we arrived in NYC it turned out the day of our tour was going to be the day of the blizzard. Max cancelled the group tour that was scheduled for the afternoon, but offered to give the two of us a private tour in the morning. We readily agreed and this was the very best part of our trip. Max braved the sleet and snow to show us all over the beer and food stops were great times to get out of the weather. He taught us a lot about the area and gave us recommendations on what to do and see the rest of our trip. Our discussions during the tour weren't just related to the tour, our talks ranged far and wide and it felt like an old friend or close family was giving us a great tour of his favorite places in the city. He completely blew us away when he emailed us from the airport on the start of his honeymoon to tell us he'd always remember us as the tour he did on the first day he was legally married. He is the best guide we have had anywhere, anytime. If (when) we come back we will do all of his tours. I originally hadn't planned on coming back to NYC, this was a one shot deal, but I want to come back just to have Max show us more of the city. You are absolutely nuts if you don't do any of his tours while you are visiting. Max, I hope Argentina is great and good luck on your newest journey in marriage.

Rob, thank you so much for such a detailed, personal and positive review! You and Vicki were wonderful company on a rainy, windy and cold day. I felt like I was just hanging out with new-found friends from Idaho. Thank you for being so friendly and flexible and for your obvious interest in NY. I hope you guys will come back soon so we can tour again!

“Thanks Max”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

Our walking tour with Max from CityRover was the best birthday present that my daughter set up for us in the UK. We were in New York in December of last year taking in all the usual sights, but towards the end of our stay we went with Max and a few others to do a walking tour of the high line,Chelsea market, the meat packing district and Greenwich village. It was wonderful, Max was so Knowledgeable about this area of New York, and when we go again we`ll definitely try another walk with CityRover with Max or another guide.

“Awesome tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

My group of 7 did the Village Sampler Tour with Danielle. There were 10 of us altogether on the tour, which was a perfect size because it wasn't too big nor too small.
Danielle was great! She was very friendly, really informative and kept the tour interesting. She also did it a perfect pace - there was no unnecessary lagging. At the beginning of the tour, she bought us all a bottle of water, and then purchased us chocolate from Jacques Torres in Chelsea Markets and a slice of pizza from the best pizza place I had in my stay in NYC. Good to do this tour during the beginning of your trip so that you can go back and spend more time at some of the stops. We ended up going back on later days to Chelsea Markets and the pizza joint - places we wouldn't of known or heard of on our own.
The tour went for around 3.5 hours; Danielle took us through 3 different neighbourhoods, pointing out various sights and historic landmarks along the way. You can tell that Danielle definitely has a genuine passion for the city she lives in, and she was definitely very knowledgeable. Had a great time on this tour and very reasonably priced at $40 - wished we could of done the other CityRover tours if we'd had more time.

“Max's tours...always a highlight!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

My husband and I visited New York City again (our 4th trip in three years) at the beginning of December. This was our third tour with Max so we knew that we were in for a treat! We have done the village sampler and the bridge tour so we decided to do the classic Central Park tour this time. Obviously doing three tours with Max proves that we believe that he is a master of his craft. This tour was very educational, and entertaining. He is also very accommodating to his guests; we had initially booked the midtown tour because the central park tour was full, but when he cancelled the midtown one because of the holiday madness, he quickly re-booked us on this one. He also gives great suggestions for places to eat and drink in the area.

One more note; some of our favourite places in NYC we have discovered because of Max's tours (e.g. Bleecker St pizza and the Blind Tiger in the Village, reBar in Brooklyn). On this trip, the first thing we did after dropping our bags at our B&B was hop on the subway and made our way to 7th Ave and Bleecker St.to get a slice of Nonna Maria pizza...delicious!!! Thanks for another amazing tour Max! As always we enjoy hanging out and catching up! See you in March :-)
