“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.”
“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.”
“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 tour, very interesting all around and a fantastic way to know all about the origins of gospel music. [The Tour Guide] was a fantastic guide, always making sure everyone was listening and enjoying themselves.”
“This tour was interesting, full of information and amazing. It was wonderful to be armed with the history of gospel before being born away by the choir and soloists at the service. Our guide … was wonderful and she clearly loved her job. She shared not only her beautiful voice but hey soul add well. This tour is a MUST and i think it will stay with me for a long time.”
“A no-miss if you want to discover a new aspect of NYC. Our guide, …, was amazing and adapted the tour to our wishes. Thank you.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“An informative tour given by a hard-core fan of the Brooklyn Bridge. Lots of details both historical and technical about the bridge, and history and tips of the Dumbo area.”
