Wow!!!! Professional, knowledgable and lots of energy!

I took the lower east side tour (Fun, Facts and Fiction) today with Leslie.

Leslie is the real deal! She tells stories from experience. It felt like I was taking a tour with my best friend who happens to be a super knowledgable tour guide.

The tour was a balance of history, food, religion, and architecture. Plus visiting some of the new hot spots.

Leslie has lots of energy and very open to questions. She pointed out details you would miss if you just walked by. She took us into places that were authentic and also some new places that were cool.

She is a professional tour guide and it shows. I called her to confirm location that morning to meet and she said she had a tour of 10 and everyone canceled except me due to the rain. She said it looks like you will get a private tour. Which I thought was very professional. Two more people showed up thankfully for her.

I gave her a decent tip at the end as she was so professional from the first email months before to the end of the tour. She then took me to a famous knish store and bought me knish. So nice.

I'm booking a few more tours (Williamsburg and Jewish Harlem)!with her before I leave.

Wonderful!!! 5 stars for sure.

I took the Jewish Hertiage Fact, Fiction, and Fun with my mother this Sunday. We had such a wonderful time. Our tour guide Leslie was highly knowledgeable and really engaged everyone in the group. She encouraged questions and personal stories. It was a great experience. We are looking forward to taking her Jewish Harlem tour next!

Leslie was an amazing tour guide of City Island. I've been living in NYC for about 8 years and I didn't even know City Island existed until I read about it in the NY Times. This was a comprehensive tour of the island and included more than just it's history. I loved it and would definitely recommend this to anyone in the NYC area. It might not be your first stop if you're a tourist visiting NYC, but if you live here I would definitely not miss this.
