Tour guide was knowledgeable and provided a very interesting tour.
Our tour guide was extremely knowledgable. It was a very interesting tour.
I thoroughly enjoyed this tour, with George, our tour guide, who kept us enthralled with stories of wall street and the financial crisis, with a very clear explanation of what lead to the GFC. We covered a lot of the financial district, while listening to george, and I thought it was a highlight of our recent NYC visit. Great tour.
An excellent review of the Wall Street area, with a great narration of 2008, 1929, the 1700s and much more. Plenty of photo opportunities, and a lot of good character. Our tour guide George had great info for every question we had, and kept a good walking and narration pace for the length of the tour. We even went over-time with the full approval of the group answering all of the questions. Like any walking tour in a metro area, there can be difficulties keeping the group together across crosswalk signal changes, but George managed to keep track of us all as we moved from place to place. If you have an interest in the mechanics and events of this world-class financial district, this is a highly recommended tour.
My husband and I took our two Virginia Tech Eng students with us. I was thrilled, we all thoroughly enjoyed the tour! Both our boys remarked how interesting the sites were!! Our tour guide was very informative and a pleasure to listen to. Already have recommended to numerous friends!
Guide was an expert in his field of Finance. Wonderful tour!
George was great! The tour was jam-packed with interesting, little-known details. We learned not only about the financial crisis, but many historical facts and fun anecdotes about NY. My husband grew up in Long Island, worked many years in Manhattan, and was still truly amazed by the tour.
Excellent tour. Just the right balance of financial and historical information--- fact and anecdote.

I thought it might be a good idea to do the Financial Crisis tour and I was particularly lucky in that our little group got two guides the experienced Tom who was a trader / day-trader and now specialises in New York history and the new guy John who was a former banker for a major firm and then went to work for the Office of the Comptroller of New York City and was responsible for the debt issues made by the city. The level of detail was fantastic what were the CDOs that brought the markets to their knees in 2008 ? How did they get so attractive to the market and why did the rating agencies such as Standard and Poors and Moodys and Fitch get so unobjective about it all ? All these and other questions were explained simply and with the benefit of detailed knowledge. And along the way, you get to see the buildings that housed the banks and the agencies which ultimately paid the price Lehman Brothers, AIG and the New York branch of the Federal Reserve. All in all, a very good morning spent in amongst it all.
Sandy was a very knowledgable and entertaining guide. Mu family and i houroughly enjoyed our financial crisis tour.
