    Our tour guide was Jenn. She was amazing! I was in a wheelchair presenting special challenges to Jenn. She was able to make it so my husband and I were able to enjoy the whole tour and not miss anything. Her knowledge, respect, and love for New York shine through and made the tour so interesting. Her ability to answer any question we threw at her was incredible. The best thing besides the beauty of New York was her ability to make our group a little family.
