My wife and I signed up for and participated in the Walking Mob Tour and was met by Robin London, a native New Yorker, who greeted us and 6 others at a predetermined location in Little Italy. Robin spoke about some of the pertinent history of the New York mafia and proceeded to show us around the area. We walked down Mulberry St which was a haven of crime and murder back in the day and the site of Gotti's Ravenite Club which is now a shoe store. We walked through Little Italy and Chinatown and we appreciated Robin's knowledge of the area and her intellect of Organized New York Crime. We ended in Five Points which is mentioned in Gangs of New York. Later, my wife and I and a young man from Ireland, ate at DaGennaio, previously Umberto's Clam House, which is where Joey Gallo was gunned down. Robin appreciated some of our's knowledge on Organized Crime which made it more enjoyable for everyone but even if a novice to the history of the Mafia, if interested in this topic, it is worth participating for 2-3 hours in this tour. Robin is informative, loves this topic, and is fun to talk to about not only the mob but the area. One can stop and get a drink or hit a bathroom without interrupting the tour and it is all informal but also very interesting thanks to Robin's knowledge. One gets a flavor of the area and we highly recommend this tour!

Met Robin for a tour around Little Italy & Chinatown. She knows a lot of stuff and is happy to answer any questions you have. At our first stop our group were so interested in what we were hearing we stood there talking for ages. It was great. Then she took us around the old places were the bosses would hang out etc. Showed us some famous movie locations throughout as well. I had a brilliant day and a few laughs along the road as well. Highly recommend if your into gangster movies and all that.

I was recently in NYC with some good old friends and we did together the Mafia Gangster Mob Tour with Robin from Metro NYC Tours. It was really cool for all of us to experience Little Italy, China Town and Soho in a totally unique film style like tour. Our tour guide Robin was super enthusiastic, really friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about Mafia in NYC, how it all developed, and told us very interesting stories and details about many Mafia gangs and personas. Robin kept our attention for the whole time, was open to topics that were interesting for us and recommended us a whole list of famous good old movies about the Mafia to watch.

I recommend this tour and the other tours from Metro NYC to all people, who want to experience a city differently, get into the streets and feel the life and special flavours, and the hidden jewels that New York can offer in so many corners of the city.

This tour has been the best one me and my fiancee have taken so far. Robin is an excellent guide and few hours are not enough to learn all she has to show. Highly recommended!

Our well versed and personable tour guide Robin London took my graduating high school granddaughter, her boyfriend and my husband and I on a tour of New York. She took us through neighborhoods we would never have known were there, explaining movie and TV shows that were filmed in the area or at storefronts. She is a third generation New Yorker with a bubbly personality and a lot of knowledge of her city. She will plan the tour with whatever you might like to see. Her specialty is also The Mobs. We took lots of photos. My granddaughter said it was the best part of the trip.
