An A++ tour, even in a pandemic! 😃
What a fantastic tour with a GREAT guide! Gabby was wonderful and even during a pandemic with masks and distancing our group was able to have a great time and learn a lot. We thought our feet would be tired, but it was just the right amount of stopping to learn about the area and walking through the beautiful neighborhoods. We learned SO much and were super impressed with Gabby's knowledge and excitement for the history of this great city!! Thanks for an A++ tour! I would absolutely recommend this to those locals and out of towners that what to learn more about these unique neighborhoods as well as get great advice on where to eat, shop, and things to see! 😍

Great start to NYC
This is an awesome 2 hour walking tour of this fascinating area in NYC. The knowledge of our guide Marella was of high standard and the pace of the tour was perfect. Not too fast but also not too slow. Really enjoyed this tour on our first day in NYC — gave us a very good introduction.
