“This was one of the best tours we took. [The Tour Guide] was very informative and new a lot about the area. The places we stopped we all very good and the people that ran them were so friendly. I believe we purchased something at every stop, just wish there was we could have gotten some of the fresh pasta home! Highly recommend. Just remember you need to purchase a ticket for the train, subway pass does not get you on the train.”
“Great, detailed information by tour guide about the history of gospel and an unforgettable service at the Brooklyn Tabernacle with its famous choir.”
“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.”
“This walking tour was outstanding. [The Tour Guide] was able to masterfully balance the conversational heaviness of slavery with the positive energy of the railroad and its supporters. It is informative, allows you to see a little of the city, and enjoyable. I would recommend this walking tour to anyone who lives in or visits NYC.”
“Great tour for gospel lovers! Despite the freezing weather, we enjoyed walking around Brooklyn and learning the basics of gospel music. The church service is long but it’s worth to hear the introducing songs.”

“My daughter and I had a wonderful time with the alternative arts walking tour in Brooklyn. Our tour guide was wonderful. She was very knowledgeable and made me view streets arts in a very new way. We had a plenty of time to take photographs. It was really a neat way of learning more about New York. I also liked that we stopped at a local coffee shop. It was nice to relax a bit, participate in the local economy, and have a chance to sit down. We had two other walkings tours, which were all very good, and wish that there was this component of stopping at a coffee shop at each tour.”
“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”
