This was a really enjoyable tour for all ages! The kids enjoyed it just as much as the parents! Patrick was really knowledgeable and made it a lot of fun. We are from NY and even learned a few things we didn’t know before the tour. We all loved that the tour ended at a comic book store so we were able to pick up some comics before heading home! We would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who loves comics, superheroes, Marvel, DC, or just learning something new!

Orlando was so knowledgeable, personable and funny- we learned so much and truly enjoyed every minute of this tour. It was an easy walk and there was plenty of time to take pictures at each location we visited along the route.

We went for my son's 9th bday and I was amazed by the knowledge and history this tour recommended. It was honestly our trips highlight besides The Statue of Liberty.

Fantastic tour! I’ve already shared my experience with friends and people at work.

It was a problem with the QR code, but the tour was so funny and interesting
