We did Gilded Age Mansions of Fifth Avenue. It was a birthday present and it was great. It was informative, well organized and well adapted to the virtual environment. I think it is exciting that you no longer need to be geographically "there" to get an side view. I am going to look at new cities I might do this type of virtual event in and I plan to do more Bowery Boys events. A+

Really enjoyed the virtual tour I took last night - 5th Avenue Mansions of New York City's Gilded Age (title may not be exact). Emma was a wonderful guide, and I enjoyed all the gorgeous visuals. It was very nice to have a "tourist" experience, and I look forward to doing more of these tours. And I really look forward to taking one in person someday!

This was my first online virtual tour and I liked it. The guide was very knowledgeable about Broadway and engaging. I learned what 'break a leg' means. The history of the building and of shows was spot on. I can't wait to take the same tour with the same guide, but in person. I'm signed up for another in a few weeks. Hang on NY, we can't wait to see you all in person.

Just enjoyed a fascinating virtual tour led by Emma featuring the sights and history of Ladies Mile. It was a great, in-depth look at the retail past of NYC with lots of lively anecdotes and unexpected details all along the way. Looking forward to enjoying more of these outstanding virtual tours of NYC!

The Bowery Boys offered the Ladies’ Mile Tour via Zoom last evening and I was fortunate enough to get a ticket. I had a wonderful time! The guide, Emma Guest-Consales, was superb and engaging and treated us to an armchair walk down the Ladies’ Mile using historical photos and street view maps. I learned a lot about early NYC department store culture and cast iron architecture. I will be on the lookout for additional Bowery Boys Virtual Walking Tours until such time as I can travel safely to NYC again and join one in person.
