We spent 5 hours with Isaac exploring Brooklyn neighborhoods. He is knowledgeable, pleasant and FUN! We learned so much! The different foods we tasted were delicious! A wonderful way to spend a day in N.Y.

“Fantastic tour”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

I managed to squeeze in the "A literary Walking Tour of New York City" on the last morning of my stay in New York, and was glad I did!
Ianto, the tour guide was very knowledgeable on the area and we visited not only the main sites of interest but also took in many of the beautiful back-streets of bohemian Greenwich Village that no guidebooks even acknowledge!
The tour started at St. Luke in the Fields church, where Dylan Thomas' funeral took place in 1953.
We moved on to the restaurants, cafes and bars which were frequented by the likes of Dylan Thomas, Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg and William Burroughs, with stops for readings of Dylan Thomas's works. Then on to the venues on Bleeker Street where Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix and Bruce Springsteen first performed. On through Washington Square, in the New York University district, the two-hour tour finished at the famous White Horse Tavern, where you can drink and eat surrounded by some fine Dylan Thomas memorabilia.

“NYC Trip Highlight”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

Had a great experience on the tour 3/24/14. I'm vegetarian, and there were awesome accommodations me except on the last stop, at which I was too full to eat anyway. Highly recommended.

I went on this tour a few weeks ago. Laurie was my tour guide. Her knowledge on just about everything was superb. I would highly recommend NY Fun Tours to a friend.

“Private NYC Jeep Tour - great way to see Downtown”
Reviewed April 3, 2014 via mobile

We decided to book the Private NYC Jeep Tour as we have been to New York before but wanted to see more of downtown & Brooklyn rather than staying in Midtown and this tour was perfect! Isaac was our tour guide and he was great - really knowledgeable, friendly & good fun. We spent 2 hours touring Greenwich Village, SoHo, the financial district, Brooklyn, Little Italy & Chinatown. Isaac was more than happy to stop for photo opportunities and we even had the roof down on the jeep so that we could get a better view. We had a fantastic morning & would definitely recommend this tour to people wishing to see more of what manhattan has to offer than the typical tourist places
