This tour was amazing!! I am still talking about all the sites and facts that we learned about NYC...the whispering wall...seeing how dirty grand central station was prior to restoration(he shows you proof), highline walkway, the biggest starbucks ever and all the different areas of the city....we gave him a few ideas of what we wanted to see and he took it and ran with it!!! Best tour we've ever been on! If I could I'd give him a 10 out of 5...

A walk that lets you discover an unknown Brooklyn, different neighborhoods and steeped in history. Our guide Frank was exciting. Thanks to him. The pizza lunch a very good shared moment. Finally, a magnificent view of Manhattan. I highly recommend this activity!
