Awesome day in the city!!
Cindy_C, Jun 2023
Dan was an excellent guide - personable and humorous! Family of 8 with grandparents, parents and four kids including a 2 year old all loved the day. Yes, a lot of walking but we saw SO much. Best way to see New York City in one day!!!
Good content, not the best guide
Sue_M, Jun 2023
Learned lots of fun facts… Unfortunately, our tour guide got there late, so we had the opportunity to hear the other guide, who was incredible! The other guide was a true New Yorker, carried a speaker with him so that you could understand and hear what he had to say, and it seemed like he lead with purpose…. Our guy was brand new at what he did, ended up being a nice guy, but we did not feel we got the experience that we were looking for.
Great Tour!
Macy_C, Jun 2023
Guide was fabulous. We saw a lot and learned tons about New York. Tour was terrific and highly recommend it. Only issue was logistical. The day is a “no sitting day” ….all 7 hours. This includes lunch. Grand Central Station is standing tables at food court, so no off your feet their unless you go to a full service restaurant. I can walk all day, but did not expect to not sit at lunch.
Dan was great!
Bruno_B, May 2023
Dan's knowledge of the city was amazing. I learned many new facts about things that I always wondered about. It was definitely a workout that day as we were all exhausted afterward, but would highly recommend it. Finishing with the 9-11 memorials and ride to the top of the Tower were definitely the best parts of the tour.

Our guide, Rob, did a great job. He was very informative and a true New Yorker! Enjoyed our tour. Small group tour, we had nine people and it worked out wonderfully.
Good itinerary
Elena_M, May 2023
Loved the attractions we visited. Lyndsey was very friendly and knowledgeable. I wish there was a little more info on The Statue of Liberty and other historical places. The stories were pretty brief.
Great way to see a lot of NYC in a very short time!
Rhonda_F, May 2023
Mindy is a delightful guide! She is extremely knowledgeable and shares it well. The tour was well paced and we saw a great deal of the “don’t miss” sights in just one day. We never would have found our way to half of what she was able to show us! Mindy had tricks up her sleeve for getting just the right spot for the Statue of Liberty pass by! This is a great tour and Mindy is wonderful- highly recommend!!
The tour that rocks!
Michele_A, May 2023
Such a great tour that gives you a lot of NY landmarks in many areas in 6-7 hours! Mindy our tour guide rocked with her history and knowledge, plus she helped us not get lost on the subway ride back to our hotel. Great tour!
Valuable experience
Janean_D, Apr 2023
This truly was an all in one type tour. So much incredible information and beautiful places to see. Without this tour, we would have missed half the city. Our tour guide, Mindy, was very kind, knowledgeable and kept us moving at a good pace.
Fabulous, unique, informative

Kimberley_Y, Apr 2023
The tour was very well done and our guide was extremely knowledgeable. Our only issue was no information telling us to prepare for a late lunch and restroom break.
Best Walking Tour!
Lauren_D, Apr 2023
Great way to see the sites of NYC. Would recommend doing early in your stay to get the lay of the land. Also, helpful navigating the subway for the rest of our trip. Cam was an awesome guide, loved all his stories and lessons. Highly recommend this walking tour. It was the best way to see all the highlights of NYC.
