    We had an amazing day with Rob! We lucked out it was only the 2 of us. I cannot imagine a better guide, so knowledgeable about the history, culture, landmarks, and so many interesting stories about them and also his personal experience. Picked a great lunch spot, we got to ask all the questions we wanted, got to pace our day. It was truly one of the best things we did in NYC! If anyone is considering doing a tour like this, insist on Rob the playwright! We cannot over-sell this!

    A brilliant way to see the attractions of New York. Rob is a fantastic guide with a great knowledge. He showed us so much that we would have missed doing our own thing with a guide book. He posed and answered questions - it felt like we were his friends showing us the City he loves. We would certainly recommend this tour if you are happy to spend most of the day on your feet learning about the history, sociology and architecture of this fascinating City.

    My husband and I took this tour and it was wonderful. Rob our tour guide told us so much history of each area of the tour. We covered 9 miles of New York. He was very personable with us, so it was a unified group of 10 joining with him. If we had questions or comments he answered and if he did not know he studied while we were on a break and brought us the answer when we all returned. When we finished at the Empire State Building we could look back at all the area we had walked that day. He encouraged us to take the subway back to our hotel, which we did, never taking one before, but a good experience of New York living. Thank You Rob for a great day.

    This walking tour with Jerry was amazing, he commented interesting historical facts of the old NYC. The new itinerary is better than the old one, it cover much more places in the same time. I was able to visit the most popular attractions in one day and time enough to take photos including with the bull and inside the St Patricks Cathedral. I highly recommended for people that meet NYC for the first time and have less than 3 days to visit. The next day I only had to visit the Metropolitan and Natural History museums and Central Park. You have to walk a lot so be prepared, maybe it is better to have more rest time for legs apart from the ferry and lunch time.

    First things first. Jerry our guide was really great. He was very knowledgeable about all the sites we visited and about history in general. He transmitted his enthusiasm and love for the city. Really a top notch tour guide. We were a reduced group and everything was very well scheduled. The negative note was that our itinerary was changed two days prior to the event. I would not personally have booked the tour we were taken on, so basically a let down.

    Our tour guide Rob was fantastic! He made us experience the city in the eyes of a local. We didn and #39;t mind walking 6.5 miles for this tour because we now have a good grip of the essence of Key locations from building designs structures, culture in each location. Rob as a guide is highly recommended!!!

    So pleased my daughter and I booked on this tour. We were so blessed to have Jerry O as our tour guide. What a wonderful gent! There was nothing he didn and #39;t know about New York and told us so much about the all the sights and history behind them. He was lovely to be with and it was a fantastic tour.

    This is absolutely worth the money. We had an excellent guide, Jerry, who told us so many things that we would simply never have known if we hadn't taken this tour and went to the attractions and places ourselves. There is a lot of walking but it hardly felt like it as the walks were interspersed with many stops to listen to Jerry as well as water taxi, bus and subway journeys to get to the many places on the tour. Highly recommend this tour.
