The day started with sunshine and blue skies. Millie our tour guide met us at the Stewart Hotel with a lovely warm welcoming smile/greeting. There were 11 people on the tour and we had stops for refreshments etc. Millie has a clear, calm and knowledgeable way explaining the history and details of each Borough we visited. All while driving a mini bus through new York traffic! The 5 hours went by so quickly. My husband and I enjoyed our tour with Millie. We learnt so much and I find myself googling to learn more! Thank you Millie, you were wonderful!

We had a fabulous time on this tour. I’ve been to New York and tried different tours in the past but this was the best by far. Milly our tour guide was so informative, her knowledge of the local area was fantastic. She was very welcoming to everyone on the tour. It was great to see and visit the different boroughs of New York and to find out about the history of the areas as well as their cultures. I would definitely recommend this tour, it is well worth the money and you will be more appreciated of the people who live there.

This was a fantastic, informative tour that my daughter and I both enjoyed very much. We were in NYC for just a few days staying in Manhattan and this allowed us to see and learn a bit more of the city. Millie was amazing...she is funny, knowledgeable - the perfect tour guide. Thanks for the wonderful experience!
