New York City Slavery and Underground Railroad Tour

4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

this is a very interesting tour. the guide was clearly a historian of the time with a personal commitment to this period of history and civil rights generally. I wanted to learn more about New York's origins and I did. It was great to hear the story from a perspective that is normally hidden. I'm very glad I signed up for it.

My Review

I really enjoyed this trip. The tour guide was interesting and entertaining and genuine, the food was fine (the chicken was particularly good) and the company of the other participants was great. We were a small group of 11 speaking three languages. I was on my own and felt included and welcome by the other guests.

The drinks in the club were generous, and included in the price. The glass of wine in the restaurant was nice but steep at 11 dollars (charged by the restaurant - soft drinks are included but not alcohol)

My Review

This is an interesting tour. The tour guide was working as a photographer on 9/11 and added an interesting personal perspective. I feel he had more stories if we had asked the right questions. He was very helpful and explained the moving stories of what happened in the aftermath as families hunted for their lost relations. The memorial itself is interesting and it would be good to allow yourself sometime at the conclusion of the tour to take it in. We started at the church where the volunteers sought rest while working at ground zero and that was unexpectedly moving. The area around the memorial is unfinished and there is a fair amount of queuing so it's best to go in a group with booked tickets.
