Super enjoyable and informative tour
, Sep 2019
My wife and I enjoyed this tour so much. It was a solid 3 hour event which covered a lot of lower Manhattan. We were never bored. Tim, our guide, is a retired NYPD police officer, was so knowledgeable about the dark side of the city and the history. I highly recommend this tour and Tim, the tour guide. Really great!

Wonderfully Unique Walking Tour!

I loved this walking tour of NYC. I am always a fan of the small group walking tours, and especially the ones that give you a different view of the city. As a frequent traveler, I can highly recommend this tour. The guide is fantastic, and their support staff are also fantastic. We had gotten on the wrong train and were about 15 minutes late, and the support in the office were able to get in touch with the guide so that we could meet up with them. Highly appreciated! If you are looking for a unique way to spend a few hours of your day, with a knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide, then this is the tour for you.
