    Our tour guide was Jenn. She was amazing! I was in a wheelchair presenting special challenges to Jenn. She was able to make it so my husband and I were able to enjoy the whole tour and not miss anything. Her knowledge, respect, and love for New York shine through and made the tour so interesting. Her ability to answer any question we threw at her was incredible. The best thing besides the beauty of New York was her ability to make our group a little family. The 6 of us left with info about each other and new friendships including our new friendship with Jenn. I highly recommend this tour and I definitely recommend asking for Jenn as your guide.

Claire was amazing! She is knowledgeable, funny, and you can tell she's very passionate about what she does. Pickup location was very easy to find. She was extremely helpful in explaining the subway system and made sure we knew exactly where we could catch our way back. I could have done without the observatory, but that's just my opinion of the experience there and not about the tour. Thank you so much Claire!!

Jenn Andres was a fantastic guide! Lots of great info, good pace for the day, and great energy throughout. We had a range of ages from 11 to 47 and all were very happy. Highly recommend!
