I booked a group tour specifically looking for a guide who worked with families and children. Doug was amazing with the kids and gave the adults a significant amount of information as well. I was very impressed with how Doug worked to ensure that our tour of lower Manhattan was interesting, entertaining and informative. Thanks for a great afternoon!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It's pretty wonderful to explore NYC with families who have come together to soak up a little history and have FUN! The kids were great and I so enjoyed their energy and curiosity AND perspectives! Just a great day. Thanks so much for your kind words.

Doug was a wonderful guide as he was personable, well informed and kept our two 8 year old granddaughters entertained. We all enjoyed our tour with him.

We must never forget the impact 911 has had on our world. Visiting the 911 memorial and museum, which is extremely well done, is an important lesson in humanity.

Doug was very knowledgeable and humorous as well. We did a walking tour of lower Manhatten and he kept us moving along at all times. He really enjoys his job which was reflected in the information he provided us with. Would highly recommend Doug !!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Valerie! Spending time with your family was a pleasure and I'm really glad you had such a nice day! We covered a lot of ground and really got a taste of the life and politics and economics of Lower Manhattan. And I'm sure your experience of the 9-11 museum which followed was a powerful one. All the best going forward and thanks again :)
Doug was a knowledgeable guide, who presented information in an interesting fashion. He obviously likes his job and it shows in his enthusiasm. On the one occasion we asked a question and he didn't know the answer there was a simple "sorry, I don't know". No guessing or b/s! We would happily seek him out if we return to N.Y. Ross H
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ross, thank you so much for your kind words. We had a great day together and I look forward to your return in the future!

We are four retired adults with diverse interests and Doug managed to captivate us all. Punctual and dependable, fun and well-spoken, he is a gifted historian and a master of logistics with a love of the city and its people we found contagious. Doug had us navigating the city like locals; traveling on foot, navigating the subway and riding the ferry. In his good care, we felt valued and safe, like spending quality time with an old friend. If we have the good fortune to return to NYC Doug is our guy!

We learned so much from Doug and thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Seeing the city from a locals perspective was exactly what we were looking for. You can only do so many "tourist" things, after those you really need to see things that are not on the normal tour lists. We will definitely take another tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hey Cindy, Thanks a bunch, it was really great meeting you and your daughter on your annual NYC pilgrimage! I'm so glad the city took on new meaning for you. The Big Apple always has a new story to tell!
