Phenomenal Tour. Highly Recommend. Learned a lot and saw what we wanted to see in the Village. My daughter was visiting NYU and getting to know the neighborhood was extremely important to us. We couldn’t have had a better guide than Evan. Extremely knowledgeable, friendly and just plain perfect human being to be sharing his talents with others. I’d take this tour again but would pay the extra to have a private tour with Evan for he really was that good!
