We did the squares and circle tour with Phil today and saw so many things that we would normally have walked past without noticing. Phil was very knowledgeable and clearly very passionate about New York and it's amazing history. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending this tour to anyone!

Thanks for the kind review. I am delighted to learn that Caza12322 enjoyed the tour as much as I enjoyed conducting it! It is a real thrill for me to show off the Big Apple’s many sights to visitors and locals alike.

Phil was a wonderful guide. Very accomodating. The tour was listed for 9AM but I called and asked if it was given in the afternoon as well. Not normally but after speaking with him on the phone he switched his morning and afternoon hikes and we were able to go. How great was that. I would definitely do another guided hike with Phil. He was very knowledgeable of the area and a nice guy too!

Thank you for the nice review. I encourage locals to be tourists in the their own backyard. Therefore, it was a pleasure to alter the schedule to accommodate a local “tourist.” Hope to see you on another tour soon.

My family is visiting New York City in June and we wanted to take the Subway Art Tour due to the glowing reviews. I contacted Phil by email to inquire if the tour would be given in June because I did not see any dates listed. He responded quickly that the subway tour was usually given in the winter because of weather, but if we could agree on a date he would be glad to make an exception! We did agree on a date and time and now we are booked on this tour! I call this outstanding customer service. Thanks Phil for your help and we are looking forward to our Subway Art Tour!

I have discovered that, when it is possible, being flexible results in satisfaction all around. Thank you for the review. Eager to show off the subterranean art museum at the core of the Big Apple.

I had 2 nice walks with Phil, The Circles and Squares walk and the Greenwich Village. Both were great, lots of info, paced very well, and Phil was the perfect guide. I didn't have time to do the Subway Art, but a little of it was covered as we travelled between squares. Next visit, I'll be sure to take that tour.

Thanks for nice review. It is gratifying to know that my tours were the ideal introduction to a first-time visitor to New York. Looking forward to showing the reviewer more of the Big Apple on future visits.

A great way to understand the area & its historical value. Who lived there, how did the area and the buildings developed. It is a leisurely walk. There always a good place to stop for a meal or coffee.
