Our tour guide Sam was just THE BEST! I had so much fun! For lunch he took us for dumplings in Chinatown which were delicious and the dessert in Little Italy was phenomenal! You'll need to pay cash so be prepared ($15-20 should be enogh). We walked a lot but I didn't really notice it, we took a subway twice (no need to buy metro card though, you can pay by card or phone). We learned some fun facts about the city but he also told us some very touching stories especially from 9/11. I forgot my gloves and he was kind enough to took us to stalls where I could buy a pair (and other visitors as well since it was a really cold December day). I am happy I booked this tour and I remommend it to everyone.

This tour is New York as we want to know it! Ludie is a dream guide. Full of power, energy, and passion. She tells the local story of slavery, racism, and heroism in a way that cannot leave you indifferent. The emotional involvement, theatre ability, and her audience's perception are so high that we could see the city story resurrected through her eyes.

Absolutely perfect start to my NYC trip! This tour allowed me to see all the important stops with a lot of fascinating info. My tour guide Sam was super knowledgable & fun! Loved learning more about his experience in the city. The small group size made it even more enjoyable. Food was amazing too! Absolutely recommend this tour!

Sam was absolutely amazing!! It’s 5 hours so it’s long and lots of walking but he made it so enjoyable and time just flew by! I would definitely recommend this tour and if you can request a certain guide….I’d highly suggest requesting Sam!!!

James is an amazing guide. We loved all the stories and he really gave us an interesting overview of the city’s history.
