Customer Reviews


5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2017

This was a fun and interesting walk with a lot of small gifts of facts and information on the way. Our guide Kevin D. has been blessed with the gift of storytelling, so if you just dress warm and embrace lagre crowds of people chasing the Christmas spirit you’re in the right place.

Brilliant ant way to start our trip. Guide Chuck was great and shared lots of information across the whole walking tour. Windows of Saks Fifth Ave are a definite must see

Stan is an amazing guide! He has a wealth of knowledge, combined with his quirky comments and flashing LED-light necklace, which made the tour very enjoyable indeed.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better December 2017

Guide did not know anything useful. She just pointed at the stores and said their names. When asked questions, she didn't know the answer. When we got near the Rockerfeller Center to see the tree, she just gave us 15 min to go see it and waited near the church. Seriously, why am I paying for a tour guide if it's to be left alone? One of the worst tours I ever did.

The worst nyc expierene. Guide walked so fast and only stoped at 1 window display, not as advertised. Don't waste your money!
