    Chris (Triebel) was an excellent guide, making the tour educational and entertaining. 4 hours is a lot of info to take in - but Chris had the perfect balance. A true gent, and clearly a pro - this is what us tourists need more of. The tour itself was excellent. The limitation of not attending the museums direct made little difference to the experience as Chris had sold the stories of both Liberty and Ellis before we even had a chance to step in either.

    Much more than we expected. Alan was great as he narrated NYC history in route to the lights. Lights are wonderful and Photo ops abound. 6pm-10pm. Recommended!

    We had a tour with Jim, who had a great passion for the tour, it was enjoyable to be on, the whole experience was so very well presented, it is a lovely tribute to all those who lost their lives and who still live with the attacks in their lives.

    Tour was fantastic - there was a concert going on in the cathedral so we stayed outside a bit longer, but Dan was really knowledgable and kept things fun and interesting. I would definitely recommend to anyone.

    I would highly recommend this tour! Alana was a fantastic guide - she has a wealth of knowledge about Chinatown and Little Italy, and the variety of foods that we tasted from each area were delicious. Alana connected with each person on the tour and created fun, laid-back experience. The pamphlet that was provided was extremely helpful as well. I will take another tour from Ahoy when I return to NYC!

    Mike was me and my moms guide on the tripe to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis island. He was very energetic and formative throughout the whole trip. It was a great time thanks to him! 10/10 recommend anyone to take a guide with Mike!

    Our tour guide Mark is very knowledgeable and accommodating. However the 2.5 hours museum tour seems a little long for me, and I was tired to concentrate his tour during the last half hour. All in all, I had an unforgettable experience from this tour.

    Rob, our sales guide was so informational! He was very well educated for this tour, we just loved him!!!! We learned so much from him that we would never have learned just walking around on our own.

    Great tour of things I’d seen on documentaries over the years and knew a bit about was good to actually visit the sites where certain things happened.
    Pierre was informative and great company for the 2 hour tour.

    A really enjoyable tour with Bruce Northam around the Lower East Side of NYC, sampling local foods along the way. If you want to see Chinatown, Little Italy, and Soho, with knowledge from a travel writer who lives locally, this is the tour for you!
    An extra bonus was the NYC travel tips sent via email following the tour.
    Thoroughly recommended! Huge thanks to our new friend, Bruce.
