“Great tour for first time visit to NYC”
Reviewed February 19, 2011

Our tour guide Luke grew up in the area and is also studying history so really new the details of the city. He was friendly and the tour was very interactive. It was my first trip to NYC so I wanted to hit the highlights and the all-in-one walking tour we did gave us a great overview. In fact, since it was such a cold Saturday in February, we were the only one's on the tour which really made it great. If you are looking for a great guided tour, I definitely recommend this one!

“Excellent walking orientation of New York”
Reviewed February 18, 2011

Derek does a great job of giving you the history of New York without burdening you with excessive detail. This is a great tour if your would like a relaxed down-to-earth tour by a local person. We did the all day tour.

“Great activity for first time or repeat visitors to NYC”
Reviewed February 17, 2011

I was a repeat visitor to NYC and took the 6 hour guide. For a free tour (plus tips), this was a fun, informative and cheap way to spend the day. NY is a great walking city, learnt a lot that isn't obvious for tourists and the lunch/snack spots were fantastic.

“One of the highlights of our USA trip”
Reviewed February 16, 2011

We had a brilliant time on our walking tour. It was early in January and the weather was freezing but decided (after reading reviews on TA) to do the financial district tour one morning. We met Stephen and straight away he made everyone feel extremely welcome (there were 5 of us on the tour). The tour went for approximately 2 hours and afterwards he gave us great ideas on local restaurants and lunch places which was great.

The tour itself was brilliant, he knew a lot of information and it was like an entertaining history lesson. We learnt a lot about this amazing area of New York and we fell in love with the architecture of the city. Since we have been home, a lot of our friends and family have asked us what the highlight was on our 4 week trip of the USA. We visited many cities and attractions and did a lot of tours and this was definitely one that we bring up as being memorable.

New York is an amazing city and we cant wait to go back. We would definitely do one of these tours again, it was brilliant!

“great tour”
Reviewed February 13, 2011

Free walking tour all in one. 6 hour of walking throughout all Manhattan ( from downtown to Rockfeller center through Chinatown, Little Italy, Soho, Noho, Village, Midtown,...). This is a grat tour that gives you a taste of what Manhattan has to offer. It is better, I think, to do it as one of the first things to do in this city, because then you will know what you will want to visit again. Of course in 6 hours you can't see all that there is to see in this city. But this tour gives you a taste of everything. Luke, our guide for the day was great. He knew everything we might be courios to know, and his love for this city will make you fall in love with NYC.
I would highly reccommend this tour.
