IBeth was so charming! Her humor and warmth were endearing. We laughed a lot with her. She was very passionate about our country’s history, and it was infectious. Her excitement in story telling sometimes made it tough to understand her when her adorable Spanish accent became stronger. All in all we enjoyed her company and the personal touches she added to the tour.

Our tour guide Jared was very entertaining and informative. He shared a lot of facts that most may not have learned about in any history class. His tour was very interactive and fun. He wasn't afraid to joke and make fun of us - "A little tour guide humor" as he said. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and I would recommended it to anyone who wanted to know a bit more history of NY.

That was great. We arrived late and the guide took care of us very well. It is good to have a starting point and considering that people may have transportation issue, especially because we are not from NY, we are not familiar with subway, etc... so that was really well thought to provide that time frame for late arrivals.
