The first time I have booked through viator, but will definitely use again. Booked over the phone as the web page didn't work, the guy I spoke with was very helpful, explaining exactly how the system worked and where I would collect the tickets from. Price was the best I found on the internet as there was no booking fee. All went smoothly, thoroughly enjoyed The Lion King, and had excellent seats.
I’m not one to usually leave reviews but I felt in this particular experience I have to. This show was absolutely incredible. The most amazing show I have ever saw and would highly highly recommend to any one visiting New York. This show is a MUST

Central Park is one of New York City's star attractions. Rather than wandering through it alone, you'll have a far richer experience in the company of a guide who knows it well. In a small group, follow your guide through the park on a walking tour that covers the history, structures, plants, animals, and movies associated with the park.

This tour is a must do whilst in New York!! Excellent from start to finish. 3 reasons why to do this -
1. Chaz, the tour guide, is brilliant. So knowledgeable about hamilton, New York and American history he provides some really interesting anecdotes and is able to answer any questions, so engaging!!
2. The places you visit are amazing. Both relevant to hamilton but also a great and in-depth tour around Wall Street area! Must do!
3. The music which is played along with the commentary was just perfect!! Interesting, entertaining and really relevant to the show. All my favourites were played!
Thank you Chaz! If I was lucky enough to live in New York I’d do your tour every week!
Absolutely loved the tour. I’m a hardcore Hamilton and history nerd and Jazz was such a great guide complete with stories, history, and a little philosophy. Listening to the tracks where it happened was a magical experience. Would do again and again!
I really enjoyed this three hour tour seeing the places where so much in the songs happened. A good tour for Hamilton The Musical fan. And I'd say it would be interesting even for those that had not seen the musical. I took the tour by myself, and it was nice to be part of an enthusiastic group with an enthusiastic guide.
Alexander Hamilton spent much of his life in New York City, and with this walking tour inspired by the Tony Award-winning 'Hamilton' musical, you can take a deep dive into the Founding Father's life and the making of the hit Broadway show.

Visit many different park locations, and learn about sites where movies were filmed. Along the way, hear historical insights from your guide. Highlights include Strawberry Fields, the Mall, and the Bethesda Terrace.
Our guide was very personable and knowledgeable. However, when reading the details of the tour, you failed to mention that most of the time would be spent outdoors when we thought it would take place in the theatres. It was extremely cold which made it very unpleasant and difficult to enjoy.
Absolutely recommend this experience to anyone who loves theater history, who loves New York Broadway experiences and who loves Disney! The tour guide was amazing and an aspiring Broadway star! Enjoyed all of the history and fun facts. The backstage tour of the New Amsterdam was amazing, the ghost stories, and my teens actually put their phones down and got excited about trying on the Disney costumes.

3 New York Neighborhoods Small-Group Tour : SoHo, Chinatown and Little Italy
Recommended especially for first time visitors to the area.
, Feb 2020
We really enjoyed our trip, and our guide was excellent. Shaded to four rather than five stars as we had been on a similar tour before and had not realised we would cover so much of the same ground. And we felt we got just a little more out of the previous tour. Still highly recommended, though.
Interesting to see how neighborhoods change including the materials used to build structures. Not too long for those of us over 70 that don't want to walk that much. We had time to shop/eat/restroom and take some pictures. We enjoyed pictures supplied from another era of the city compared to what it is now.
New York City is so big, it can be difficult to fit everything into one visit. This tour makes seeing NYC’s most interesting neighborhoods—SoHo, Little Italy, and Chinatown—in one day easy. In SoHo, visit the historic Cast Iron District, and learn about 19th-century architecture. In Little Italy, see mob sites, and hear about John Gotti, an American mobster. In Chinatown, see top highlights and where get the best bargain.

This was a great use of our time during a recent stay in NYC. Halloween is a spooky time and the tour didn’t disappoint. It mixed the history of the city with the fame and infamy of certain terrifying situations. Tons of fun.
This was a really fun tour! It was really interesting to hear the history and stories of Greenwich Village. Our tour guide, James was awesome! He was funny and engaging and kept it really interesting. Was a really fun night with friends visiting from out of town.
Greenwich Village is one of New York City’s most beautiful and most haunted neighborhoods, but just strolling through alone you’d miss out on all the spooky historical facts. This Greenwich Village ghost tour is led by a guide who tells chilling stories of celebrity ghosts, lost children, phantoms, and more as you stroll through Washington Square Park, the New York University campus, and West 10th Street.

A look at how Wall Street work in the past and in the present
, Dec 2019
An informative and enjoyable walking tour of Wall Street and the financial district in New York. Try to arrive 15 minutes earlier before the tour starts to take photos of the Custom house and the New York Stock Exchange.
Wall Street’s eight blocks are full of stories of the past and present, but other similar walking tours don’t offer an exclusive look into the area’s history with someone who worked on Wall Street. This tour is led Wall Street insiders, and takes you to see top attractions such as the New York Stock Exchange and Goldman Sachs. Plus, you’ll get the scoop about the lifestyle of a Wall Street trader.
Tour was great - interesting, well-paced and delicious, hearty portions of food samplings. Our tour guide, Justin, was terrific. He provided a wealth of Flatiron area/NYC knowledge in a fascinating way. Thank you so much, Justin!
We had an amazing time on this tour, learned a lot and saw and learned things that you do not get by simply using Google. The food was amazing and not stops we would know to stop at. Highly recommended for anyone who likes architecture and food! Definitely a highlight thus far

Great walking tour of Chelsea and the Meatpacking District. We really enjoyed wandering through the Chelsea Market with delicious stops for savory and sweet treats. Ended the tour with a terrific walk along the High Line from Chelsea Market to Battery Park, an amazing tour from classic to ultra-modern New York. Sofia was interesting and knowledgeable. Recommend highly.
The High Line, Chelsea Market, and Meatpacking District are three of New York’s hippest and foodie-focused spots; but exploring them is best with a guide for navigation and insider tips. This small-group tour takes you straight to their best spots and offerings. Roam the elevated High Line park, savor artisanal specialities at Chelsea Market, and discover the architecture and food haunts of the Meatpacking District, once home to NYC’s slaughterhouses.
My husband and I like to schedule a walking tour in a different part of NYC whenever we visit. We've done 3 now and this is by far the best one! Brian, our guide from Urban Adventures was just terrific. He really knew his subject matter and made it so interesting. Also, the food stops were just delicious. I will definitely schedule with this company again! Just terrific!
Our tour was hosted by Astrid (Ace) of nycurbanadventures.com who was a very pleasant and knowledgeable guide. The tour area of the Lower East Side encompassed mainly China Town and Little Italy although the foods provided also included Jewish and German fare. All the tasters were very good, particularly the Chinese potstickers. The other members of our tour were from various countries /locations and all mixed well. Ace ensured that she kept everyone involved and spoke on a one-to-one with everyone at some point. An excellent introduction to New York.
