“I had a fantastic time on this tour yesterday! Although I have lived in Manhattan for 20 years, this tour revealed parts of the city that I had no idea existed or have only seen as background shots in films. The guide, …, put everyone at ease with her friendly demeanor and obvious enthusiasm for the beautiful, quirky, and often poignant, historical details of the sites we visited. So pleased with the value and quality of service. I am not particularly informed about architecture and was surprised that the she was able to deliver so much information in such an entertaining format. Her ability to improvise when the hectic city intruded was superb. Looking forward to checking out of this company’s tours soon!”
“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 Alternative Art Tour was awesome. The guide was knowledgeable and skilled in presenting the information on an ever changing landscape of street art. I would recommend this to anyone without hesitation”
“It was an excellent tour with … our guide. You really learn about the history of Bronx and get to see really nice local art. Places you probably wouldn’t visit without this tour. .”
“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.”
“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”
“Today was thoroughly enjoyable! Our guide … was so informative and had a great sense of humour. My partner and I were not sure if we were going to enjoy it however it turned out to be one of the best days so far. Excellent and I would most definitely recommend this for anyone who wants to experience New York old school – 10/10”
“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.”
“Excellent tour, really enjoyable. Our tour guide … was very informative and passionate about the subject, he kept the energy up throughout and took time to interact with all members of our group. Went beyond the typical facts you would expect, and make me view NY a little differently during my time there, very impressive!”
“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”
