Friendly guide that showed us tons of places that we never would have found on our own. Great thing about her was that she was very flexible and able to adjust the tour according to what different people wanted to see. There was a ton of walking and with seeing so many sites in a group there were places that we liked that we had to rush through for the sake of time. Sandy, our guide, did her best to give us breaks which we appreciated. Also I would add that though the guide told us things about every place we didn't really go into great depth at any one location, but with but the amount of places we visited that would have been hard. Overall we had a good time and appreciated that Sandy really does go out of her way to show everybody what they want to see. If you are up for some walking we recommend this tour.

It was a great way to explore New York, we would never have discovered so many great places on our own. Our guide Bobby was super nice and made a lot of effort to explain everything to us and also showed us his favorite places/restaurants. Fantastic!!!!!

Bobby was a great guide and brought us to interesting sights and great eats during this 5-hour walk. About 16k steps walked today. He also shared his extensive knowledge of the history of NYC in a fun way. Highly recommend!

Such a great tour! Very informative and covered the best parts of the city. Bobby was amazing and engaging the whole time. Highly recommend!

Patrick was excellent, he will make an unforgettable walk.
