A fantastic and educational tour, even long term visitors to NYC. Our guide Tim was knowledgeable and friendly and gave great advice. I feel very lucky to have had such a compatible group for an activity like this - the young fun couple on their honeymoon, and the two wild sister, plus Rory and Isaiah from the tour company who were shadowing Tim but also contributing to the fun. Highly recommended.
