Meet your guide in downtown Manhattan at the National Archives at 1 Bowling Green. As you walk through historic Wall Street, learn about how New York became the city it is today. The private tour ensures you have your guide’s full attention and that you can ask questions at any time. From Battery Park, enjoy priority boarding for the Liberty Island ferry. After a short ride with sweeping views of the skyline, you'll arrive at Liberty Island. Follow the guide through the very path that immigrants arriving in New York took a hundred years ago. Once you return to Manhattan, begin a leisurely walking tour of famous downtown landmarks, including the Stock Exchange, Trinity Church, and Alexander Hamilton’s grave. As some locations are unmarked or hard to find, the guide ensures you don’t miss a thing. End the tour at the National 9/11 Memorial Museum, where the guide offers a local perspective on the events and aftermath. Hear the resilient story of the Survivor Tree. Upgrade to include a visit to the One World Observatory for panoramic views of the city. Observatory tickets sell out fast, but your pre-reserved ticket guarantees entry.

    Claire was our tour guide and she was amazing! She had wonderful knowledge of what she was talking about and was fun. I really enjoyed the tour and I enjoyed talking to Claire. She even helped my mom, grandma and I find the best way back to our hotel after the tour. Thank you Claire!

    Cameron - amazing tour guide
    Our tour guide Cameron was AMAZING. He was knowledgeable, provided visuals, passionate and he went at a decent pace. I'm not the biggest Marvel/DC fan but it was still enjoyable to me and included info about popular scenes/movies that even I could relate to. It was a brilliant way to see New York City while learning more about history. Thanks again, Cameron.

    Best tour we’ve done in NYC so far.
    Cameron had a vast knowledge of the Superhero world. He introduced our group of super fans to many new facts and trivia. Well worth the time and was the best tour so far (according to the 2 pre teens).

    Superheroes
    We arrived late but luckily Patrick our guide hadn’t left the meeting point yet. He quickly filled us in on what we missed and then led us around various sites and had an in depth knowledge of the characters associated with each site on the tour as well as a great awareness of the thought processes of the comic creative teams relating to how the characters were presented. He was able to make my wife, who very reluctantly agreed to accompany me in the tour, have a great time and actually leave with a better understanding of the characters and where they fit in the psyche of the public. Patrick was a great tour guide and the tour was thoroughly enjoyable.

    Great fun tour for the superhero at heart.
    Cameron was amazing. He knew his content and incorporated some history in there as well. He truly was excited to share the information with us. We left not wanting it to end. I highly recommend. Definitely is a walking tour so be aware but it was a perfect amount for a walking tour. Would definitely recommend to others. Thanks for a fun day.

    Very nice and dark tour with unusual information you don't hear any place else.
    The tour was really cool. Very nice information during the tour and gives a different insight to this part of New York. It's good for a change to hear something different than the ordinary stuff. Our guide Claire was great, she's a cool chick!

    Lower East Side With Conner!!!!!
    We had the pleasure of having Conner all to ourselves. We were a group of four and spent the most delightful afternoon with Connor. Our stops a unique Jerky shop a quirky bodega, some of the oldest temples in the US, the pickle guy, bialys and bagels, economy candy, Katz's deli and much more. Even better than the food was Conner's wonderful historical knowledge of the Lower East Side and quick wit and kindness. Conner looked out for our welfare and made us laugh. What more could you ask for in a tour guide. I highly recommend this tour. Maybe you will get lucky enough to have Conner as your tour guide.

We truly loved our Top Dog Tour experience. Victoria was an amazing guide with extensive knowledge and insider tips that made our tour outstanding! Our tour was a great value and Victoria’s guidance allowed us to make the most of the time we had to spend visiting the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Wallstreet, 9/11 Memorial and the One World Observatory. Thank you for a wonderful day Victoria!!!

On my bucket list has long been to take our family to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty and we finally scheduled it the week after Christmas. Having heard horror stories of complications and frustrations and expecting attractions to be crowded, we scheduled with Top Dog Tours for a private tour. We started in Battery Park looking at a line that seemed to stretch for miles, and we skipped it. We met our energetic and knowledgeable guide Liz who had already gotten our tickets and off we went. The experience was deeply moving, particularly Ellis Island. But the difference of going with someone who knew the ropes, where to stand when made all the difference. It is absolutely possible to do this on your own, but the private tour is the best way to go if you can.

I took my uncle and aunt to NYC as they had never been. Last time I was at the statue of liberty and ellis island I was like 8years old on a field trip. I wanted to show my family around as well as learn about history and get a lot out of a tour.
We had an amazing time with Percy Smart she was the best.. I think the organization of the tour, the flexibility, and the positive upbeat attitude of our lovely tour guide made the day unforgettable.
I loved how the tour had all our tickets ready and the day went super smooth. I had so much fun also!!! .Percy was a walking book of historical knowledge with great energy and vibe. I would recommend Percy without hesitation. Also when i called the tour company Perry was super sweet, and explained the meeting place for me as I was nervous as I had only booked the tour a day or two prior last minute
It really was the perfect trip, well worth the money as in guided tours you learn so much without walking around aimlessly. I really encourage a private tour. It makes the day so you are not wasting time and you see a lot more in one day than you would have otherwise. Tickets are already bought so every location planned to be seen was easy

We had Jordan as our private guide for myself and my 9-year old grandson. Everything went off without any issues and Jordan was absolutely amazing. He had great energy during the five hour tour and really kept my grandson engaged and entertained. He also had great knowledge about all of the locations we visited and made a couple of last minute adjustments with no problem. I'd highly recommend Top Dog Tours and if you have kids in the group, ask for Jordan. You won't be disappointed!

This tour is worth every penny. I’m sure our tour guide Liz made it even better. With a knowledgeable tour guide, you learn so much more than just seeing the iconic places. Additionally, you gain the trust and wisdom of someone who knows exactly when and where to line up, see some things you would normally miss and learn while doing so. Liz was very knowledgeable but also presented the information in an exciting way that helped us remember the things we learned. If you have any kind of disability, this tour is fantastic. Your tour is just for you so if you need to rest, use the bathroom and whatever else you may need, you can go at your own pace. Liz, thank you for an incredible experience.
