Our son (17) really loved the Superhero walking tour. We learned a lot and got to see some really interesting sights. We are glad we did it!
Absolutely fantastic tour. The guide was so knowledgable and was an actual cartoonist himself. He knew all the great illustrators and took us to their drinking haunt to see original drawings on the walls! We walked out the actual doors superman did! A good walk over 2 hours but not in a taxing way, we stopped a lot and the pace was slow to accommodate everyone. Definitely recommend this tour as a difference way to see New York.
Perfect! My 12 year old grandson loved it and I had a great time myself!
Excellent tour! Awesome tour guide. My 10 year old son, a superhero expert, found the tour of great interest and learned some new facts for his already incredible repertoire of superhero information.
I would recommend the tour as a great way to spend 1.5 hours in NYC and see some great sites.
We thoroughly enjoyed the Superheroes tour - one of us had read comic books for years, the other one of us had never read one - but the tour was great fun for us both. We loved seeing some of NYCs major sites whilst learning bits of Superhero history and trivia. The pub at the end of the tour with walls covered in artwork by Marvel and DC artists was a great way to top off the tour. Highly recommended.
The tour was a great experience. It was fun and interactive with video clips and chances to take pictures of sights that were used in many movies. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and the locations and sights that we visited gave us fun new way of looking at city my friends and I have grown up in.
My son is the superhero fan, my wife and I not quite as much. However this tour appeals to all, you learn very many interesting facts, are able to stand where superhero movies were filmed. And you have a guide that makes it fun. Last stop the secret pub that many cartoonist show off their work was a gem, the guide (being a former cartoonist) even sketched a pic of Batman for our son.
The Superhero Walking Tour of New York was BRILLIANT!!! The tour guide was very welcoming and friendly, his depth of knowledge and inside stories of the comic book writers he had met were excellent and made it much more than a simple sightseeing tour. There were a lot of opportunities to take photographs of sites which had been used for superhero movies and the tour guide showed us videos at many of the sites of how they actually looked in the movie. As a couple (and for the other people who had attended together) he was quite happy to take photos of the both of us at various sites so we could have some nice photos together. As someone who is not really a comic fan (this tour was a present for my partner who is a "die-hard" comic book fan) the tour guide made it very enjoyable and interesting, whilst also including lots of "geeky" information for the die-hard fans! Thoroughly recommended!!
Our guide, Paul, was extremely knowledgeable, entertaining, and an overall nice guy. There's nothing like a superhero tour from the real-deal DC Comic animator. He brought the history of super-heroes to life, while showing us a vibrant view of NYC, that we would not have experienced otherwise - like the inside of Grand Central Station, the Chrysler Building, and Daily News building where Superman was filmed. He walked us through the locations where Avengers was filmed and we captured some great snapshots. Kudos! Can't wait to go back and take my kids.
This tour was one of the best I have ever been on. Paul, our tour guide, is extremely knowledgeable, amicable and funny. We learned all about the amazing history of DC Comics, Marvel Comics and their heroes as they pertain to New York and American culture. I would count this as a "must do" while in the city.
I thought the superhero walking tour was great! I'm not really into superheroes but I got it as a present for my boyfriend and we both loved it! The tour guide had so much knowledge on superheroes and always kept it very interesting! It was a very fun trip and I definitely recommend it!
Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and it was a great way to orient ourselves to this area in NY city. This was approximately 3 miles of walking. We were the only people who brought kids (for a reason). My 12 year old loved it, but it was not really exciting enough for my 9 or 5 year old, plus it might have been a little bit too much walking for them. I would say 10 years and up...
A great time and very informative, as a lifelong fan of comics, and a new arrival to New York it didn't disappoint.
Fun Experience and loved the last restaurant to look at the cartoons. The daily planet was a huge treat as well :)
The Tour guide was very knowledgeble and friendly. We had a bout 10 people in our walking tour on a Sun afternoon and it was very enjoyable. The walking was very manageable, if maybe a little show in the beginning because the guide spends alot of time talking at the first few stops. The last half goes faster, with more walking and I enjoyed that more. I felt the beginning had a little too much standing around just listening to his monologue, but if he modified that to walking more towards the front end of the tour, it would be even better. Also the guide was very open to taking pictures for you and did it in a very friendly (not grumbling manner).
