Very knowledgeable and friendly guide, Shawn. There is so much history in NYC and this tour highlights the history of NYC and the role slaves paid. Many sites I had walked by before without noticing, so it was great to hear the details and significance. From the slave market to underground railroad locations to the African Burial ground. I would... More

Excellent tour guide: We got a lot of information; in a funny way. She was easy to listen to. The church is huge and we were there on time and so had good seats on the balcony. The gospel choir was great. The opinions about the style of the service probably differ greatly but it was in my opinion a... More

As a visitor to the States and NYC we learnt aspects of early New York as well as the time of slavery. At all times Ludie kept a close eye on the group,... More

Unfortunately it poured during most of our tour; however, Sean held up well, kept us together, and filled the time with a fascinating narrative, including some contemporary references. I would have liked to have visited a few other sites, but due to the cold miserable conditions we ended a little early. Compared to other walking tours I've taken in NYC,... More

I thought this tour was excellent and can't recommend it highly enough to native New Yorkers as well as tourists. Educational, lively, engaging -- it helped to change and open up my understanding of New York. I greatly appreciated Ludie, a wonderful tour guide from start to finish.

This is a must-take walking tour to get to know the most iconic buildings and styles at Manhattan. Our guide Katherine gave us all the facts about many of the buildings like The UN headquarters, Tudor City, The News Building, Chrysler Building, Channing, Grand Central Terminal, New York Public Library, etc. It is a popular tour so expect to share...
