“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.”
“… 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, … .”

“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”

“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!”
