My wife and I very much enjoyed our 1840's NY tour. The history, the architecture, the neighbors, all made for a fascinating morning!. Further, our guide was fabulous, with his detail, knowledge, and caring that we enjoyed our tour

My friend and I are both history geeks and have been looking for a tour of NYC for a while that would provide more than just pointing out the well-known attractions. Well, this was exactly it. The guide was extremely knowledgeable about NYC's history, weaving it in the architectural peculiarities of the buildings we saw and explored, while also not losing sight of the constant hustle and bustle that NYC has been since its creation. We learned a ton of interesting historic facts and have a newly developed admiration for NYC architecture. The tour covers some distance but it is not a fast-paced walk with plenty opportunity to stop and rest while listening to fascinating tid-bits about your surroundings. I would highly recommend it for those who want to dive in and truly learn to appreciate NYC.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and learned alot. We do, however, think the description of the tour should include a note that the tour emphasizes the architectural aspects of 1840's NYC rather than the history of 5 points and the gangs of NY.
