Cathy was an exceptional guide. We visited food stores (Italian and Oriental) and tasted many delicious things...well worth the time. Cathy is a chef, so the tour was in-depth, personal, and, well, fun.

We have used Context Travel in Rome and the New York office is a thorough and helpful. Will definitely use them again.

I did several Context tours in Rome and I glad the NYC tours are just as good. They use a small group size which makes it easy to hear and ask questions. The tours were really in depth but still enjoyable. They cover many of the typical areas one would visit but there a few tours that cover unique stuff. I plan on trying a few more.

Recently, my wife and I had the pleasure of taking advantage of Context Travel's architectural walking tour of New York City earlier this month [18 February]. We were guided along 42nd Street by a well-prepared and highly professional person who knew her subject very well. She not only exposed us to the high points of building construction and design but tied all of this in with a history of the city, touching as well on the cultural role played in its growth.

This was a highlight of our visit to Manhattan.

We very much enjoyed our architecture tour with our guide Michelle. She was clearly passionate and knowledgeable about architecture. She had many great gems of information to share with us and her presentation made the tour all the more enjoyable. We would recommend this tour to anyone interested about architecture in New York city.

My daughter and I did a walk this weekend with Elizabeth on Impressionist Art. It was amazing. She started at the beginning and walked us through the impressionist movement all the way to modern art. She explained how and why the painting style changed and used the fabulous collection of the Metropolitan Museum exceptionally to illustrate it.
We had used Context Travel in Italy and loved them there as well.
