“We took the Underground Railroad tour with this company in August and loved it! What struck us was the high level of expertise that the tour guide had. He was also enjoyable to listen to and friendly. The Underground Railroad and Slavery Tour was fabulous!”
“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.”
“Our family had a great on the tour . Our guide … did a fabulous job he was well informed and in touch with the people. We would highly recommend.”
“… 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 prebooked the tour via internet for our long- awaited first trip to New York early March 2016 via New York Pass. The address and tour details received by mail were very good, we found the guide … immediately and spent a wonderful 2.5 hours exploring Brooklyn Bridge and DUMBO neighbourhoods. Very personal and interesting by a Brooklyn fan ;o) highly enjoyable and recommendable.”
“I thought the tour was great. Our guide was very informative. We got some wonderful photos and he was only happy to take some for us. Would highly recommend this tour.”
“We have just come back from the Brooklyn Bridge & Dumbo walking tour. We had a great, very knowledgeable, polite and informative guide … . Really really worth the money, yes you can see the bridge and even walk it, but the guide told about the history and the stories of the bridge and the Dumbo area. I can’t recommend it enough, a must do! As well a nice chocolate shop stop!”
“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!”
“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”
“Our guide … was very informative and knew the area well. She was very interesting and was bright, cheery and helpful. She was accommodating to everyone’s needs, listened and responded appropriately. [The Tour Guide] knew this area well and at the end of the tour offered advice for directions and NY tips. We have used Inside Out Tours twice now and would recommend them to anyone who wants to know a mix of history and information regarding the Manhattan areas.”
