We did a 2.5 hour walking tour of the ironbound with Antonio. He did a great job explaining the history, the various immigrant groups, and current issues. Leaned a lot. Unfortunately due to covid we couldn't go in a lot of places, but we did pop in a Polish church which was stunning and he brought delicious portuguese custards. The tour finished at a distillery which had great rum and whiskeys to sample. A really interesting family outing

I did the Newark tour two years ago (2018) and enjoyed it immensely. Even though I grew up in Newark there was a lot of the history I was unfamiliar with even though among my ancestors were 3 of the founders of Newark. The guide was well informed and personable. He answered questions and also let us interject our stories or information. The only down side for me was that there weren't many opportunities to stop and sit down for a few minutes.. the tour was 3 hours and most of the group were really lagging by the end. I will be doing the tour again at some point.

I went on a tour with Emily in December. Despite the cold weather it was a great experience! I met some local business owners who were all awesome and had an exclusive shopping experience. It was refreshing to walk through the historic streets of Newark and see beautiful street art. As we walked, Emily shared fun facts about the city, for example, patent leather was invented in Newark in 1818. I never knew that and I was born in Newark! It was such a good time. By the end of the tour some strangers became friends, we had a fun group! Emily is an awesome and informative tour guide. I can't wait to take my friends on the next Have You Met Newark Tour.

College students from Montclair State took a tour with Antonio this past Saturday. He was down to earth, funny, but most of all knew SO much about so many different aspects of Newark. He answered hard questions and easy questions like a pro. Because...he is a pro, he works in urban planning and knows all the cutting edge projects. All of us were delighted with an insider's look at Newark.
