My 7 year old grandson accompanied me on the tour and he loved it. Patrick is so knowledgeable about all things in the comic world and exhibited great patience with my grandson who had a million questions. It was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon, see the sights in NYC and learn of their connection to the comics.

Fantastic tour. Great blend of comic book history and NYC history. Patrick is the man! Wealth of comic book knowledge and a true love for his city. You get to learn a lot about comics and see some of thr city's most iconic landmarks. Lots of fun!

This was a fun tour learning about the history of ganster activity and ghost stories. Our tour guide Mac was quite knowledgeable. Additionally, we learned additional historical facts.

Tour Guide was great. Chris was very funny and added a few extras. Definitely worth every penny.
