Reviews

We quickly worked out the areas we wanted to see (Chelsea Mkt-Greenich Village-Little Italy-Chinatown-WTC) and sorted out a meeting place. We were then in Dan's expert hands, this guy is so knowledgeable and was able to quickly work out the various interest of our group and provide insights, and locations of interest. And this is no easy feat when travelling with teenagers. We dropped into a world music store because I had an interest in musical instruments, Magnolia because girls liked cup cakes and the TV show 'sex in the city' of course. Dan constantly checked in on how we were going and the pace we went at worked perfectly.

Even before the tour, [Andrew] did a great job in helping us to narrow down what we wanted to see based on our interests. The tour itself with was awesome. Seeing Chinatown, Tribeca and Soho with Andrew was great – he gave us really interesting insight into the history of those areas and pointed out all kinds of fun and quirky sights that we would have otherwise missed. Andrew also gave us excellent recommendations for the rest of our trip, and even followed up with an email about those. My husband, who was initially skeptical about taking a tour, has said that it was his favorite part of the trip. My preteen loved it, too (which says a lot, because that can be a tough age to impress).

HIGHLY RECOMMEND! This walking tour was one of the best I have done in the U.S. and abroad. My husband and I took a 4.5 hour private tour with David through Lower Manhattan, Battery Park, Wall Street, World Trade Center site, China Town, Little Italy, The Bowery, Chelsea Market... David customized the tour to our requests as we went along and was knowledgeable, easy going, and friendly. It felt like walking with a friend through NYC!
