“Very easy to book online (the day before) and great tour guide … . Walked over the Brooklyn Bridge and explored Dumbo. Learnt a lot of interesting history from Matt re the construction of the bridge and the town of Dumbo. I’m not a lover of history but he was very engaging. Walked at a good pace with regular stops and photo opportunities. Very satisfied with this tour and would use this company again.”
“Just got back from New York and we went on the Gospel Tour … OMG it was really cold but well worth it we had an amazing time the highlight of our trip anyone going to New York you really have to book this tour. THANK YOU … and please thank the church it was so uplifting”
“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!”
“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. .”
“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.”
“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!”
“… our guide, was a mine of information with tremendous enthusiasm and knowledge of the area. The walk was well paced and covered the history of the Bronx from its origins to the present day. Murals, the birth of hip-hop, the Grand Concourse were all covered in detail. [The Tour Guide] was an excellent guide and this walk has greatly enhanced my knowledge of this vibrant New York borough. I have no hesitation in recommending this tour to anyone interested in urban history and development.Thanks, … .”
“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.
