Kevin Doyle is the consummate professional. He is a top notch tour guide of New York and specifically the 9/11 memorial tour. We extremely enjoyed our time with Kevin and highly recommend his tours.

“West Village Food Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

This tour is a good deal: you get to try different food from 7 establishments (easily enough to qualify for a meal) and get some history too. Dante is an excellent tour guide, also had him on the Lower East Side Food Tour at Christmas time (liked the food on that tour better, can't beat Katz's!). Very enjoyable. Also went on the Mad Men Tour. Love this company!

“West Village Food Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

Great variety of foods...felt like we traveled the world in one day. Don't eat before you go. Easy walking with a lot of local lore. Watch out for the Minetta stream that is turned on on cue. Dante' made the tour!!! He was an excellent guide. Bravo!

“Great Photography Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

I live in New York, but had the great opportunity to go on the Sidewalks of NY Photography Tour with Aaron. He was a wonderful teacher and incredibly nice. I would call myself something of an intermediate photographer, and he helped me gain a much better understanding of all of the cool things my camera can do, as well has how to optimize my setup (i.e. aperture, shutter speed, ISO, white balance, etc) for different situations.

Since I am from NY and was more interested in getting some photography tips (and happened to be the only person on the tour), Aaron was more than willing to gear the experience to my preferences. However, for people who are from out of town, I think this would also be a great way to see one of New York's prettier neighborhoods and get a chance to take some great photos while also learning a bit. I would definitely recommend the tour highly to anyone who has an interest in photography or is looking to get started.

“Fun Facts and Fantastic Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

My daughter, sister-in-law and I took this food tour just last Friday. We toured the West Village, and Dante was our guide. What a great guy! He was full of interesting facts about this beautiful area of New York City. He took us to experience seven different varieties of food...each unique and delicious. I have been to the city many times, and this ranks as one of my very favorite activities. It is reasonably priced and all the food tastings are included. When I return to New York City next year, I will make a point of taking another one of their other tour offerings...of course hoping Dante will be my guide again. Don't miss out on the fun facts and fantastic food!
