After visiting New York on many occasions we decided it was time to venture off the island and learn more about one of the other boroughs. The Queens tour was extremely interesting and Dan was a fantastic guide. We started in Jackson Heights and Elmhurst then travelled via subway to Astoria. We walked and learned about history and cultural influences in each neighborhood and stopped along the way to sample local food. I particularly liked Astoria and we will definitely return on our next trip. There were so many cafes, restaurants and independent stores that it definitely deserves more than one visit and time away from Manhattan.
