    Great tour of beautiful architecture!
    Kierstin_Q, Apr 2024
    Matthew was very knowledgable and clearly passionate about the Gilded Age. We enjoyed seeing beautiful architecture and hearing about the families that lived in the buildings. If you're a fan of the show, you'll love to hear more about the characters' real lives, and even if you've never watched, you'll learn so much!

    Thanks for your review! I’m glad you enjoyed it!
    wasted time on waiting for a tour that never happened
    Ina_L, Apr 2024
    My tour was cancelled and we were not informed about it. We have been waiting for 30 min and then someone from the group reached out to customer service and found out that the tour was cancelled.
    Response from Host, Apr 2024
    I deeply apologize for this unprofessionalism. There is no excuse that can justify it. In almost 2 years of doing these tours this has never happened before. You have every right to leave a 1 star review. It really deserves zero stars.
    An era comes alive as you stroll the Avenues with Mathew
    Hillary_S, Apr 2024
    Our family travelled back in time with Mathew as he lead us down the avenues to the Gilded Age mansions. Mathew’s deep knowledge and passion about the subject along with his dynamic storytelling skills made for a very informative & interesting tour. I’ve already started recommending this tour to friends.

    Matthew, the scholar of NYC mansions
    Benjamin_K, Apr 2024
    Matthew has an encyclopedic knowledge of mansions in NYC, Newport, as well as surrounding areas. He delivers it in an entertaining way by mingling it with fun facts, photos, and pop culture. Highly recommended.

    Emily_T, Mar 2024
    Matthew is very knowledgable about the gilded age and has curated a wonderful experience. He is an excellent story teller. The tour went a little long; more than 2 hours. Be ready to walk and dress appropriately for the weather. Good value for the money.

    Susan_B, Mar 2024
    Matthew is an excellent, enthusiastic, engaging tour guide. He brought an era to life for us, put faces and stories to the names we’ve previously only read or heard about. I thoroughly enjoyed his tour and I learned a few things as well.

    Gilded Age Tour is Great!
    Andrew_G, Feb 2024
    I live in the neighborhood where the tour take place, but I never knew the stories behind the mansions I would walk by every day. Matthew, our tour guide, really brought them to life with the stories of the people who lived there. The stories themselves were fascinating, and he's a great storyteller!
    Response from Host, Mar 2024
    Thanks for your review! It’s always fun having New Yorkers on the tour learning about our city!
