A Recent Review of this tour

If you want to see NYC- Michael is the guy to get your around and tell you the stories of his home town. What an excellent job he did on our day together. His knowledge and expertise allowed us to see more of the city than we have done in one day than we could have ever done on our own. He went above and beyond what we expected and we highly recommend him.
