“First and foremost let me compliment our tour guide … on well presented and informative tour. She made the experience so much more enjoyable. Brooklyn Bridge is a construction marvel. The views from her majestic presence over the East river are breathtaking. When in New York you simply have to walk this bridge and immerse yourself into the atmosphere that surrounds this iconic structure. Our memory of this sightseeing tour was so much more enhanced by the experience of Inside Out Tours”
“I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our tour guide … was the best! So off the beaten path, this tour made me feel like I was experiencing the life in the Bronx firsthand. [The Tour Guide] has befriended a few shop owners and we were able to see how bread was made in coal ovens, how pasta is made, tasted fresh cannoli, tasted homemade mozzarella. It was phenomenal.”
“We just got home from 7 days in New York. We did 4 walking tours while we were there. The Alternative Street Art tour was a favorite for my 18-year-old. I also enjoyed it very much. Just be prepared if you go in July it is HOT! Awesome tour definitely would recommend it!”
“This was a fabulous tour and one of the highlights of our trip to NY. It is, in my view, exactly what a walking tour should be – the right balance of walking and lots of information. This tour was crammed full of sights and information with plenty of time at each stop to absorb the building. The guide … was engaging and very passionate about her tour. We really felt like we were delving beneath the surface of the city a bit more. Our group size was great about 12 people so we were able to keep together. Be aware that you will be on your feet for most of the tour and you will walk from 1st avenue to 8th. Comfortable shoes, lots of water. Highly recommended”
“Great experience to see and learn a bit more about the buildings you normally only are passing by. We had a fantastic tour guide … who really made this 3 h tour to one of the high lights during our 5 day long visit in NY. Highly recommended!”
“The guide was really knowledgeable, easy to understand and answered any question we asked. To get to know the details about how the slavery started in New York was really interesting and scary at the same time. The Slavery and Underground Railroad tour is a must when visiting New York.”
“Fascinating and informative tour, included general info about NY history and the history of slavery, and a pleasant not too strenuous walk around Lower Manhattan. The conclusion was very powerful as well. Guide …, with an advanced degree in History, knew his material, and answered numerous follow-up and other questions with detail and depth. Great tour!”
“What a wonderful tour! We learned so many new things, tasted delicious food and had a great time. Our guide, … was full of interesting facts and stories. We felt that we truly experienced life in Little Italy. Everything was on time and well organized. The entire afternoon was a very positive and professional experience. We would definitely recommend this tour and company to others.”
“A very interesting and informative tour of the slavery and underground railroad in New York. Our guide had an incredible knowledge and you could see his passion for the history. Totally recommend this tour. We did it as part of the New York pass.”
“I had a really great time on this tour. It was great to have [the Tour Guide] show us a part of NYC I would probably have never seen on my own. As a street art enthusiast, it was great to spend three hours walking Brooklyn and seeing some great murals and pieces of art. [The Tour Guide] also gave us a lot of information on the murals we saw. I recommend this tour to everyone wishing to see something out of the mainstream.”
