Complicated at first because it was difficult for them to find a French-speaking guide. He explained to us that for them January 2 is a holiday so it's not easy to find. But extra morning, very nice Carlo, good explanations about the city. You can tell he's in control and loves what he does.

Anette picked us up from the hotel as announced via WhatsApp. Since we had already looked at some of the sights she wanted to show on the tour the day before, she spontaneously planned an alternative tour. We took the subway downtown. Anette not only told us something about the city, its development and the people, but also reported something about her life.

We had booked a four hour tour from downtown Manhattan. Together with our very nice guide Lukas we walked from there through Tribeca to Chinatown and Little Italy. From there we went to Soho and Greenwich Village. The tour was very informative and easy to do in four hours. Actually, we had planned to walk to the Flatiron Building, but since Lukas showed us a few nice bars and restaurants (including table reservations) and we also went there for a drink with him in a very nice bar, we no longer have the time done, but it didn't hurt at all. It was a great trip and a very pleasant guide Lukas. Many thanks to him again for the nice time.
