    We so enjoyed our tour today of Chinatown and Little Italy! Such a unique way to see and taste areas of the city that are off the usual beaten path. Braeden was a great guide, sharing interesting stories along the way. The pizza was some of the best we have ever had! Truly something for everyone. Would highly recommend!

    Ian was super friendly and the food stops were tasty. Loved how he took me around Greenwich and explained landmarks and history along the way. Had a great time and would definitely recommend.

    Great night out. I read reviews about people getting lost and not keeping up with the group...we stopped for an ice cream and walked at our own leisure. While there are many lights and people, it ain't times square...it's a couple of blocks of houses and if you can't find your way back to the bus, maybe New Mexico might be a better holiday destination fit than New York.

    Steve was a fantastic host and the bus trip was relaxing and informative. The stop at Brooklyn bridge is the highlight.

    Very great experience with the tour guided by Mike. His rich knowledge helped a lot for me to understand really the stories behind the arts.

    I love art museums so it was not a surprise that I loved this tour. The highlights selected were a perfect mix of types and eras. My ten year old also enjoyed it thanks to a scavenger hunt created by the tour guide. I highly recommend this tour if you have limited time to spend at the Met.

    If you've ever toured the Newport mansions 'summer cottages', this tour highlights the NYC digs of many of those families. You don't need to be a fan of the show to enjoy this tour; if you know about 19th-20th century NYC history, or want to know about it, you'll find this tour $ well spent. Matthew was engaging, informative and good company- highly recommend.

    Isaac was fantastic and we got to see and learn so much in our three hour tour! We were only in NYC for a short time and wanted to make the most of it so this tour was perfect!
