A fantastic experience with a super guide
Ray_D, Aug 2023
We had a fantastic tour guide in Alice who was very knowledgeable, engaging and took us on a delightful tour of Manhattan. She is highly recommended. Thanks Alice! The Vanderbilt experience was amazing!! The views were too good for words and the organisation was first class and very friendly.
Great tour and our guide, Ric, was awesome!
Jennifer_B, Feb 2023
Our tour guide, Ric, was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We really enjoyed everything he showed us. We definitely learned a lot and saw so much more than we would have on our own. Since we went on a Sunday, the New York Public Library wasn’t open yet (opens at 1 pm) so we couldn’t go inside, but he did encourage us to visit it after the tour - which we did. It was awesome, and had he not told us about it, we never would have thought to go there. Also, we were able to pop into St. Patrick’s cathedral while a mass was on, so that was cool. Summit was really neat!

Enjoyable trip with friendly guide
Mollie_E, Dec 2021
Enjoyable trip with friendly guide. Only downside was that the emails / ticketing in advance was confusing. Kept being told to download tickets but then landed on page that said "this is not your ticket". All worked out upon arrival at site, but clearer advanced messaging would be helpful.
Scam
Omaira_V, Dec 2021
Horrible experience. Spent $160 Dollars on 2 tickets and could not redeem it at the radio city music hall. Customer service was no help and did not get a refund. Scam company. Stay away….
Viator did not send us...

Scandaleux
gregory_f, Nov 2023
Nous n avons pas pu obtenir les billets et avons essayé de contacter le site qui est resté sans réponse. Le guide est parti sans nous alors que nous étions à l heure. Le lieu de rendez vous n est pas clair du tout et la personne que nous avons finalement réussi à avoir au téléphone n a pas voulu nous reprogrammer la visite car soit disant plus de disponibilité. Je suis allée sur le site pour vérifier et il restait des places ???? Pas de remboursement. Scandaleux. Nous déconseillons fortement

We're sorry for not being able to reschedule your tour and for the confusion regarding available spaces on the website. Your feedback is invaluable to us, and we take your concerns seriously. Please contact us directly at feedback@walks.org so we can further investigate your case.
