We did the above tour on March 22, 2017, 2 adults and 1 child (12yrs). It was a great tour! We met at the Tweed Courthouse and were quickly underway. It was a great (but freezing due to the wind) walk across the bridge, with 3 stops on the bridge. Lots of great info and great pictures. Our tour guide... More

This was a wonderful tour,. Our guide, Sean, was amazing and kept my 13 year-old niece fully engaged. There was a mixture of ages in the group and the tour worked for all of us. Highly recommend this!

Me and my father have had a few days in NY and we're SO happy we decided to do this tour! Our guide, Katherine (with a K 😉), was an amazing guide! So knowledgeable, accommodating and overall wonderful 🙏🏼 My dad's English is not perfect, but Katherine spoke very clearly and not too fast, so he could follow along easily.... More

With Ludi as our guide, yesterday afternoon, in what was a very cold afternoon, twenty seven of us embarked on a journey through time back to the days when there were slaves in New York. Ludi was extremely knowledgeable and shared with us as much as she could within the two and a half hours which were allotted to her.... More

Took the NY Slavery & Underground Railroad Tour. It was great. Sean our guide was amazingly well informed and kept everyone's interest throughout the tour. Such rich history hidden in everyday NYC. Highly recommended!

It was two days after the blizzard of March 2017, and a very cold and very wet day, which may have been why the "Dumbo Neighborhood" portion of the tour consisted only of walking straight to Jacques Torres' shop (for hot chocolate) and nothing else. Or maybe there was nothing noteworthy to be said about Dumbo, in which case why... More
