Streetwise NY Tours are outstanding, top-notch, and worth every penny!
I booked 3 private Streetwise Tours for our family while we were visiting NYC a few weeks ago to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. We have a 10-year-old son, and I wanted us to really experience as much of NY as possible. What better way to do this than by 3-hour walking tours?!
*Please note that each tour we took, we opted to do the private tour for just our family. I'm sure the non-private tours are fabulous as well.
I booked the Manhattan private walking tour for Sunday, October 8. The tour was with Sonya, and she was perfect! We walked to and through basically every neighborhood in Manhattan. We stopped at parks, and our son got to play a bit. Sonya was full of great info. We went to The High Line as well. We even stopped at The Chess Forum shop (per my son's request) in Greenwich Village, and our son got to play chess. We took the subway with her a couple of times which was very fun. Our first time! It was SO nice to be with someone who knew where they were going and what they were doing. We weren't having to look at our phone GPS or wonder if we were in ok spots. It was a no stress, fantastic tour, and I highly recommend the 3-hour Manhattan tour!
On Wednesday, October 11, we did the 3-hour private walking tour of Brooklyn with David. It was awesome! We explored all over Brooklyn, including walking across the Brooklyn Bridge: a true highlight!! As I stated above, being with someone who knows what subways to get on, where to go, what areas to be in, and what to do is SO nice. No stress! Just follow, listen, learn, and enjoy! The 3-hour Brooklyn tour was outstanding, and David was a terrific guide!
Lastly, on Friday, October 13, we took the 3-hour private walking tour of Queens with Dan. I am SO thankful we did this! We NEVER could have done this on our own. We went in grocery stores and shops, which might sound like no big deal, but WOW! They are totally different. It was such an eye opening tour for our son (and us). Dan was extremely knowledgeable and professional (as were Sonya and David). The 3-hour tour of Queens was a highlight for us.
I cannot say enough how pleased my husband and I were with all 3 of our Streetwise Tours. Dan has a top-notch company, and we would definitely use them again.
