our guide Mike was incredible. Literally sat in pouring rain on wet ground to take pictures of us in front of statue. Informative and took good care of us.
Better get Sal. Not the shady attorney, but the native New Yorker tour guide with a love for history that is infectious. Your day starts out at Battery Park, where you meet with your tour guide, collect the hearing devices in which your tour guide communicates with you, and get an idea of how the day is going to go. The trip to Liberty/Ellis Island can be done without the tour guide, you you would miss so much. If I hadn't known the dented gold globe planted next to Clinton Castle was originally next to the World Trade Center buildings, I would have just walked by without a clue. Sal made sure to keep us updated on points of interest, where to stand to get the best pictures, how the multiple security checks to get to Liberty Island was going to work, where to be to get through the lines quickly, etc... and he's a pretty funny guy to top it all off. Well worth the money.
Great tour, Sal was an excellent guide. Very knowledgeable.
I was with a group of four on this tour. We were all really pleased with our tour guide Mike. He gave us so much information and made it very interesting. He showed us things we would not have found out on our own. He has a great personality. We could tell he really loved his job. We would recommend anyone to use him. When go back to New York, we will definitely be asking for him. Thank you so much Mike!
One of the best tours I have ever been on, anywhere! Sal, our tour guide, was incredible. Very funny and so knowledgable about the history and New York generally. He was also able to convey the very sad and serious side of 9/11. Be prepared to walk, but you will learn a lot and love it!
Awesome tour, our tour guide Sal was very informative, patient and even had great suggestions for other things to do and places to eat. Audio equipment is a must, especially in a city like NY. Set aside a least 2hours to see the inside of the 911 Memorial. Be prepared because it can get very emotional so take breaks inside, but a wonderful tribute to those who gave so much.
We had a very full and exhausting day with Sal, who was very knowledgeable. Well organised and a great group of people. I would advise comfortable shoes and a bottle of water and be prepared to feel like you have done New York in a day! Thank you Sal for the memories and your patience with photo taking!
Brooklyn native and history major--perfect combination for a knowledgable NYC tour guide! Guide was early and well-eqiupped with headsets and disposable earbuds for everyone--so much better than the guides that have to yell to their group. We were able to clearly hear him as he described the city and its sites. He was patient as he answered any/all questions posed to him in the extreme summer heat. Presented us with the best photo opportunities he actually laid on the ground to help us capture a family picture with Lady Liberty. He gave us food and attraction recommendations for our stay in the Big Apple. He rearranged our tour to accommodate our train departure--he was AWESOME! We had a great tour and experienced an appreciation for NYC!
Sal was an excellent tour guide. Having a tour guide who knew the area well made it a great tour. He was also very patient with our son who asked a million questions!!
This tour was above and beyond what we expected. Our tour guide, Sal, was truly amazing. He gave us more historical background information than what we were expecting. The delivery of this information was interesting and at times funny with his personal insight as a New Yorker. This tour is a must
