Thomas, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and personable. He spoke with such enthusiasm and provided historical anecdotes that made the area come to life. He was very personable and encouraged everyone to ask questions. My husband has been to NYC numerous times and enjoyed the tour just as much as my daughters and I did.
