Our Bronx tour with Alexandra was both fascinating and informative.Her passion for the place of her upbringing was evident in her tour. It was great meeting people she knows and seeing the murals. To top off a great tour, Alexandra recommend a local Italian restaurant the fresh pasta was the best we have ever had. Would definitely recommend this tour when in New York.

My father and I very much enjoyed our walking tour of the South Bronx with Alexandra. Since we were staying in Manhattan, she went to the trouble to meet us in Harlem to start the tour. Alexandra has an extensive knowledge about the art and history of the Bronx, having grown up around the places she took us too. All of the art pieces she took us to were awesome. One of the best moments on the tour was when she took us into Giant Tattoos where we met some of the locals who showed us the some of the handmade bicycle sculptures in their shop. Alexandra was eager to show us as many spots as possible, and introduce us to her friends and acquaintances that we passed on the street. I have sometimes found that walking tours can be a bit of an awkward experience, especially if you are standing still for long periods of time or if the tour guide has no context around day to day life of the people and the community. This was not the case with Alexandra, as the tour was very well paced and helped us to understand many of the present social issues. Overall, this was a great experience and opportunity to learn more about New York.

We didn't know what to expect on this historical tour, never having been on one before, and only knowing what we see on TV about the Bronx. Alexandra, who does the tour knows everything about the area past and present, having lived there all her life. She told us about the past and the present happenings, and some things that have happened are quite shocking. We met some of the locals, who are so friendly and welcoming, and seem very happy considering what is going on. I would say, if you want to see this area of The Bronx, then go now, before all the historical sights have disappeared, because developers are moving in, and soon, it will be a different place, and you could not get a better person to show you this than Alexandra Murari.

Alexandra was fantastic! She brings a native touch to something way more than a tour. It is an experience that participants cannot get anywhere else. She talks of the history and transformation of neighborhoods while bringing her own personal experience into it. She connects with tour participants at their level and invites them to enjoy a borough that is long overlooked in the mainstream industry. I recommend this to anyone who is willing to go out their own box and their own preconceived notion of what The Bronx is. I will continue to bring my clients to Alexandra.
