“We recently took the Highlights of Midtown Architectural Tour with [a Tour Guide] from Inside Out Tours. It was a fascinating way to see some of the key buildings in midtown, NY, and we saw a lot of buildings and learnt historical facts we would not have known otherwise. [The Tour Guide] was extremely knowledgeable and overall it was one the best ways we saw New York.
“This was an outstanding tour. The tour guide was very enthusiastic and made it very interesting. We thoroughly enjoyed the visit and participation with the church service. I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the New York area”
“What a wonderful tour guide … turned out to be. A fountain of knowledge with a magnificent voice breaking out in song when informing us about the source of gospel music. With so much enthusiasm from our guide, how could we not have had the best time! The service in the Brooklyn Tabernacle was such a highlight, the singing lives on forever. Great tour.”
“Great tour. We learned a lot about the area and we had to change our ideas about the Bronx. [The Tour Guide] was our great guide. She told us a lot of facts but also talked about living in the Bronx. She was passionated. Although most people don’t thing visiting the Bronx it is a real cool place. …”
“… our tour guide was fantastic. Lots of great info and highly recommend doing it. Very easy walk with beautiful buildings every where.”
“What a delight The Tour guide … had a fantastic knowledge of both the art and the neighbourhoods we were in. The collections of art were fantastic and with out the tour we would never have found them. This was the highlight of an 8 day trip to new york. Our sincere thanks to [the Tour Guide] for a fantastic tour.”
“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.”
“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!”
“[The Tour Guide] was our guide for this lengthy and in-depth tour. It was well off the beaten track, and really interesting, with demographic, historical and political insights into the story of street art in Brooklyn, and its place on the world stage. I really came to appreciate the ephemeral nature of the art work, and sure enough, some was found during our tour. My son later spotted some by ‘invader’ in Greenwich Village on a subsequent tour. Really informative, and intelligently presented tour.”
“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”
