I am ashamed it took me this long to write a review because of how truly incredible this experience was for my family and me. Before lockdown, I found Robin via multiple websites and booked a half-day tour by private car for myself, my mother, and gangster loving father. I prefaced the booking explaining that my father had a bad knee and I was a bit nervous about a walking tour. I was hoping he would still get the full experience viewing everything from a car and not just be stuck in New York city traffic all day. Robin customized the entire ride for us, and not only was she an absolute pleasure, she knew the streets so well she would ask the driver to pull up a couple of hundred feet when the sidewalk would be easier to get in and out of the car. It was a fun experience we still talk about and also happened to be the last time my parents will be in the city with me for quite some time. When we got hungry, and my father wanted to sit down for a meal (an unexpected request when we had a full picnic in the car), Robin, of course, knew the perfect place and was able to incorporate everything into part of the experience. She was incredibly knowledgeable and my father LOVED it.

When I booked this tour I had to talk my wife into it a bit. By the end of the tour and the rest of the day it was all she could talk about. We both loved it!!Our guide was incredible and so much knowledge about this subject, area and buildings. Learned new things about the mob and laughed so much, he kept it so entertaining!! This is a must do if you are headed to NYC and best way to see Little Italy/China Town for sure.

What a great way to learn about the history, tangle of webs and the crime in the city involving the mob. All the names from the main five families, and their popular hangouts are discussed. Our tour guide Joel was knowledgeable, entertaining and engaging! What a great way to be a tourist in your own city for a day!
