We had a brilliant day with our guide Rachel. She had an amazing knowledge of the city and was very attentive to us all on the tour. On our departure she gave us all a card with her number and said if we had any trouble to call or text her. A fantastic guide and will defo recommend the tour especially if my friends & family were to have Rachel as a guide. We covered the whole of the city in just a matter of hours and even got to go on the Staten Island Ferry. Thanks so much Rachel!

Very thorough overview of the city. Our guide, I think her name was Dana, was awesome!! We have been on multiple other tours and this was definitely a favorite. Enjoyed the walking component with the guide. Also our driver Arlis did a magnificent job on a day the traffic was atrocious due to the UN General Assembly

This tour was so informative and Tyler was very well spoken and I felt very safe being led by her. Exceeded my expectations as I had apprehensions about taking a tour in a city I don’t know well. I have already recommended this tour to family and friends.

Get your tickets in advance. Be at the meeting point early. Get an open air convertible bus. Request Brooklyn Jim for your guide. Take lots of pictures. You won’t regret it!

The tour was great and our guide was fantastic! She was warm, friendly and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend!
