Our tour guide Jared was very entertaining and informative. He shared a lot of facts that most may not have learned about in any history class. His tour was very interactive and fun. He wasn't afraid to joke and make fun of us - "A little tour guide humor" as he said. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and I would recommended it to anyone who wanted to know a bit more history of NY.

Our guide was a New York native and was very informative. He was funny and provided a lot of information. Highly recommend.
