“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.”
“[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.”
“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 tour guide was fantastic. Lots of great info and highly recommend doing it. Very easy walk with beautiful buildings every where.”
“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!”
“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.”
“Excellent tour, really enjoyable. Our tour guide … was very informative and passionate about the subject, he kept the energy up throughout and took time to interact with all members of our group. Went beyond the typical facts you would expect, and make me view NY a little differently during my time there, very impressive!”
“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.”
“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!”
“I had a really great time on this tour. It was great to have [the Tour Guide] show us a part of NYC I would probably have never seen on my own. As a street art enthusiast, it was great to spend three hours walking Brooklyn and seeing some great murals and pieces of art. [The Tour Guide] also gave us a lot of information on the murals we saw. I recommend this tour to everyone wishing to see something out of the mainstream.”
