“Completely engaging history of the role of NYC in the slave trade, the perpetuation of slavery and the bravery of the abolitionists and those involved in the underground railroad. Our guide … was knowledgeable, informative and managed to keep us and two children 11&14 fully engaged for 2.5 hours in soggy, cold and blustery weather. The history of the African Burial Ground and the Slave Market gave a tangible insight into the horrors of slavery and ongoing racism/inequality.”
“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.”
“First and foremost let me compliment our tour guide … on well presented and informative tour. She made the experience so much more enjoyable. Brooklyn Bridge is a construction marvel. The views from her majestic presence over the East river are breathtaking. When in New York you simply have to walk this bridge and immerse yourself into the atmosphere that surrounds this iconic structure. Our memory of this sightseeing tour was so much more enhanced by the experience of Inside Out Tours”
“I took this Gospel-tour two weeks ago, solo as a visual impaired person (no peripheral sight). The tour guide made everything to make it easy for me to enjoy this tour. Our guide knew many interesting facts, and attending the Gospel-service at Brooklynite Tabernacle was amazing. You must also stay for the sermon, but you do that with pleasure to respect the church community. A must-do in New York on a Sunday.”
“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”
“[The Tour Guide] was a perfect guide for this tour. It was fun meeting the business owners and learning the history of the area and best of all getting to taste the food!”
“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.”
“[The Tour Guide] was our guide for this lengthy and in-depth tour. It was well off the beaten track, and really interesting, with demographic, historical and political insights into the story of street art in Brooklyn, and its place on the world stage. I really came to appreciate the ephemeral nature of the art work, and sure enough, some was found during our tour. My son later spotted some by ‘invader’ in Greenwich Village on a subsequent tour. Really informative, and intelligently presented tour.”
“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.”
“What a delight The Tour guide … had a fantastic knowledge of both the art and the neighbourhoods we were in. The collections of art were fantastic and with out the tour we would never have found them. This was the highlight of an 8 day trip to new york. Our sincere thanks to [the Tour Guide] for a fantastic tour.”
