“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.”
“[The Tour Guide] was a wonderful guide and was happy to share her love of the city and the Brooklyn Bridge as well as the history that went with the impossible bridge quite fascinating!”
“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.”
“This was an outstanding tour. The tour guide was very enthusiastic and made it very interesting. We thoroughly enjoyed the visit and participation with the church service. I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the New York area”
“Fascinating and informative tour, included general info about NY history and the history of slavery, and a pleasant not too strenuous walk around Lower Manhattan. The conclusion was very powerful as well. Guide …, with an advanced degree in History, knew his material, and answered numerous follow-up and other questions with detail and depth. Great tour!”
“… 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, … .”
“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.”
“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.
“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.”
