Friendly guide that showed us tons of places that we never would have found on our own. Great thing about her was that she was very flexible and able to adjust the tour according to what different people wanted to see. There was a ton of walking and with seeing so many sites in a group there were places that we liked that we had to rush through for the sake of time. Sandy, our guide, did her best to give us breaks which we appreciated. Also I would add that though the guide told us things about every place we didn't really go into great depth at any one location, but with but the amount of places we visited that would have been hard. Overall we had a good time and appreciated that Sandy really does go out of her way to show everybody what they want to see. If you are up for some walking we recommend this tour.

Lee was a great guide. He knew his information and was very personable. Loved that we got shoed off a corner in front of the restaurant, true NY experience. The pizza at the end was so delicious!

The tour with Boby was great. So many highlights and hidden places, you can't do it alone in this time. A tour that I highly recommend for the beginning of a stay to get an overview.

Our guide Bobby provided a perfectly choreographed tour performance. Funny, charming, and very informative. Highly, highly recommended.

Knowledgeable and goes above and beyond to make the tour interesting.
