Our English tour would have been cancelled today if it hadn’t been for Stefan who was taking the German tour stepping in. He was fantastic, switching between German and English. The tour was interesting and informative. Even though we have visited NY before, we still saw things we had not seen before and learnt new and interesting facts. Well done Stefan and thank you to the German ladies for allowing us to join your tour - Danke

My mom and I really enjoyed our tour today. Erika was our guide. She was very enthusiastic and knew a great deal of history about New York. She tailored the tour to our group. We wanted to see the Chelsea market, so she made a stop there and took us in. She was happy to spend as much or as little time in each location and gave us plenty of time to take pictures. Our driver Oscar was amazing. He navigated the busy streets so well and was very agreeable to whatever plan we came up with.

Our guide, Uli, was absolutely brilliant. Despite not being a native New Yorker (she's Austrian), she knew everything possible about the history, culture, geography and gossip about the city. She and our driver took us speedily and efficiently to all the key sights of New York, explained all we needed to know and Uli was able to answer every question we had. She was enthusiastic, helpful and kind (particularly with a travelling companion who had mobility issues). She recommended a great local restaurant for lunch after we had finished the tour and gave us all sorts of useful hints and tips for the rest of our stay in New York. A complete star
