A great tour of NYC and a great way to see lots of iconic sites in a day. Rob was our tour guide and was very knowledgeable of NYC. He was a former HS history teacher which made it even better adding insight to the sites others might not get otherwise. He provided recommendations of other things we should do and where to eat and drink. Our group was very small (our family of 5 plus a father and son) so it was pretty much a very tight group which I think we got more out of it then a large group setting. Highly recommend the tour and a bonus if you get Rob.

It was super cold (single digits) the day of the tour and Rob said it was his coldest one he's guided to date. We were able to stay warm with the walking and then times where we were inside places, subways, and lunch - so no big deal.

Funny story, two days later in Times Square we ran into Rob on his day off with his wife who happened to be out and about. It was good to run into someone we knew in NYC...

Jenn did a fantastic job with leading us all around the Big Apple! She was so helpful in showing us how to navigate the city. Had a lot of high energy and knowledge that made the day fun! This tour is not for the faint of heart. I walked 10.2 miles that day! Not all of that was with the tour. Highly recommend this tour! The tour was the on the coldest day that week we were there but Jenn made sure we got to warm up at different spots.

We have just arrived back from a superb tour around New York. Thank you to our tour guide Rob who made our day so special. Very informative, interesting and lots of fun. He was extremely knowledgeable with clear explanations on areas of interest. Rob was also able to give recommendations regarding places to eat, drink and also other tourist hotpots to visit.
This tour was exceptional and we would certainly recommend to anyone looking for a similar experience!

We had a great time with Jenn. She did an awesome job highlighting the city. We were really excited because we were pretty much the only people in the group. 5 stars to Jenn. But I will have to say it was rather annoying (especially since the tour wasn't free) that the first hour was dedicated to supposed late comers that needed to catch up to us and the company constantly texting Jenn about them. I felt bad for her because it was probably super awkward for her as well. I've never been on a tour where we had to wait for people or look for them. If you're late, you're late. But like I said, Jenn is a great tour guide and I wish her the best!

Jenn A. was our tour guide and she did a wonderful job leading our large group of 20+(unfortunately and not her fault due to another guide testing positive for Covid) around the hot spots of the city. She was super efficient at helping us navigate the subway, ferry and crowded streets and had a wealth of knowledge about the different areas we visited. This tour includes the area of Manhattan from midtown (Times Square) to downtown with an hour lunch break near Wall Street.

We did the ‘full day with a small group’ tour and had the best time. We did see so much of the city and Rob was a very knowledgeable tour guide. The tour took about 6 hours and was a great mix of walking (total of around 6 miles), subway and ferry. We could have never seen and learn so much if we were just strolling by ourselves. 100% recommended!

Mindy rocked! Started at Times Square, past Rockefeller Center and NYC Library, quick inside St. Patrick’s Cathedral, subway ride to downtown, inside Grand Central Station, past Trinity Church, past Wall Street, past NY Stock Exchange, rode Staten Island Ferry past Statue of Liberty and back, past Proud Girl, Bull, and Bowling Green Park, and ended at 911 Memorial Pools, unlimited time inside top observation deck of One Trade Center, and finally through the Oculus on subway ride back to hotel. Even had time in the middle for lunch. Great day meeting new friends from Singapore, Indiana (originally India), Florida, South Carolina, and San Antonio. Biggest surprises were the elegance of Grand Central Station and the quiet majesty of Lady Liberty. Phenomenal tour and guide. Sincere thanks!

We did the Full Day Must See Small Group Tour plus One World Observatory Ticket. It was fantastic! We saw so much in one day. Covers so much ground. A bit of walking but nothing too fast paced. Kept us very interested and our tour guide was very informative. Stopped for a quick lunch. Had a ferry ride and also a subway ride which was great. We had a great group for our tour.
