James was very informative of the history of New York City, The Stock Exchange, and even had his own personal experiences to bring the facts of history to light. We stopped in front of the raging bull which was fun. James was very thoughtful and had us stop inside certain buildings during the walking tour to have us warm up a bit!

As a former Wall Street insider, Jon did a superb job of explaining the underlying causes of the 2008 Wall Street financial crisis which claimed many greedy as well as unwitting victims. His sense of humor, combined with simplified but detailed explanations of complex investment instruments such as CDOs and CDWs made the tour fascinating for the financially sophisticated and novices alike. Although I had enjoyed reading THE BIG SHORT by Michael Lewis and seeing the resulting movie several years ago, Jon's tour offered an excellent summary of the Wall Street failure for long-term retention. In addition to visiting the fabulous art museums and other well known attractions of New York City, I strongly recommend this easy walking tour by licensed guides who were once Wall Street insiders. By the way, the 2-hour walking tour ended conveniently within 2 or 3 blocks of the 9/11 National Memorial Museum, so plan accordingly if both of these subjects are of interest.

This was a fun and very informative tour. We had James and he kept it interesting for our two teenage sons as well as my husband who works in the banking industry. It truly appealed to all of us! It was a fantastic way to give our boys a lot of financial history from someone who ecpefienced it.
