We enjoyed each day of our stay in Manhattan. The Lowes Regency Hotel at Park Ave. and 61st was recently redecorated and the staff is excellent. Our visit included the Late Night Show with David Letterman, Madam Butterfly at the Metropolitan Opera, a concert at the BargeMusic performing center, the 911 Memorial, the Financial District and we were scheduled to take a Cruise Dinner but were too tired to make it so we gave our tickets to a friend. Being a Texan that prides ourselves on Friendliness, I told some of the hotel staff that if they didn't watch out, NYC would become known as the friendliest place to visit which would upset Texas and we would have to go to war again but this time we would win because we are allowed to keep our weapons! :)
Great! Our tour guide had a lot of knowledge and the group was just the right size. We were just around 10 people so if you had questions it was easy to get a chance to ask the tour guide. Highly recommended!
Our guide was Sanford who retired from Wall Street. He was more than qualified to provide the inside info on the Financial Crisis. The bonus was a great tour of major buildings in the area and an appreciation of the amazing architecture. I'd highly recommend this tour. We enjoyed it so much we may take another tour from Sandy in the future. We ate lunch in a 'safe' at Bobby Van's across from the street from the trading floor.
Our tour guide was very knowledgable about the crisis and the buildings and companies who occupied them. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and found it very insightful.
Excellent. The tour guide had worked on Wall Street (first as a courier and later as a reporter) so he offered perspectives that outsiders would not know. He also worked in the vicinity on 9/11. He loaned me his jacket because it was cold (so nice). He was able to have us walk into one of the old NYSE buildings, which we could not do on our own. I highly recommend this tour.
A great oversight of new york if early in tour visit.Guide Bronx Jim was fantastic
Excellent guided tour for those curious about the global impact of the financial crisis right in the heart of the financial capital.
Fantastic tour, our guide Tom was so informative and interesting. I learned so much.
This tour is a fun way to see the Financial Area.It is also very informative.
Visiting NY for the first time from New Zealand with a strong interest in learning about the wall street and the history of lower manhattan etc this tour was my HIGHLIGHT of our week in NY.
Tom was a wonderful guide with lots of insider info and great perspective on the financial crisis and history of the financial district. Will definitely recommend this tour.
Totally enjoyed the tour. Guide very knowledgeable about both finance and the area. Especially like he wore a mike so easy to hear. Moved us along but not too fast. Great tour.
