Robin, as a tour guide, gave us an interesting, entertaining and personalized experience. We got to see places like Little Italy and china town in a way that we would have not seen or known, without Robin's knowledge and experience. We both immensely enjoyed the tour and would highly recommend Robin tour if you want to know the real NYC!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for hte 5 star review. I had a blast showing you both around the old haunts of the mob and Chinatown. I hope to see you again in the city.

Robin was wonderful. I took the Soho, Little Italy and Chinatown tour.

She also keep in mind of the weather situation and looked after my comfort level. I definitely would book another tour with Robin. Awesome!

Robin was a kind, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, thoughtful host. She is energetic and clearly presented fascinating information about the neighborhood and it's musical and other historic connections as well as taking us to eat the best falafel we have ever had. And that was just the first stop on the trip! We finally had to cry uncle when we got to the Italian pastry shop choosing to get our cannolis to go. She even made suggestions to us about what we could do once the tour ended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your wonderful review. I had such fun showing you around. I hope to see you again in the city.

I booked a 6 hour tour with Robin and she was just wonderful. Very friendly, extremely informative, great narrative, never boring and never lost our attention. She was on time to escort us from our hotel to begin the tour and returned us to our hotel at the end of the tour. I highly recommend her for your tour guide if you are new to New York and or if you are returning to New York and want to do something different.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the 5 star review. I had a wonderful time with you and your friends. I am so plesed they enjoyed the tour. Let me show you more what the city offers on your next trip.

Robin was a fantastic tour guide. We used her for two day 4 hours each day. My wife and I treated our 17 year old grandson and a friend to a 6 days in New York. Robin guided us through China Town, Little Italy and the financial district and historic area one day and Greenish Village and Uptown the next. She is absolutely delightful. A native New Yorker that had great knowledge of the city. She had old photos to show my grandson that made the trip come to life. I would definitely recommend her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the 5 star review. I loved showing you and your family around tne city. I hope to see you again in the Big Apple.

Robin was an excellent Greenwich Village Guide. She was prompt, engaging, and knowledgeable. In short, everything one could have asked for in a guide. It was great to see the Village through the eyes of someone who had grown up in the area. Her tour was a wonderful blend of history, architecture, and points of local interest. Thoroughly enjoyed the morning with Robin.

We had an amazing day with Robin! We asked her to show us the less touristy neighborhoods, including, Chinatown, Little Italy, SoHo, and Greenwich Village. She had so much insight to offer and was extremely accommodating to our mobility requirements, individual interests and tastes. Despite the unrelenting rain, this tour was still the highlight of our trip. We highly recommend touring with Robin.

We had a very special experience today. Robin took her time to discuss what we wanted out of our trip then she carefully crafted everything to suit us. Robin is so knowledgable and authentic in her approach - just brilliant. Food and background information was great to get such detail about all aspects of the history of Greenwich village. Would recommend it to everyone.

We highly recommend Robin as a guide in New York City! Her depth and breadth of knowledge about major and anecdotal facts that are both historical and current is extensive and quite entertaining. Her family has lived in New York for several generations, contributing to her understanding and passion for all things Manhattan. Most importantly, Robin  takes her work to heart, and sincerely wishes to match each individual's interest with the content of her tour. An excellent choice!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the wonderful review. I had such a good time with your family. Please stay in touch whenever you come here even if it's just for a quick hello. Regards to all and hugs.

I had a busy working day and couldn't stay with my 16 year young daughter. I found the 'ToursByLocal' website, went through the reviews and saw that Robin had many positive reviews. I emailed her and got quickly an answer after which I entrusted my most valued capital to her for a full day. My daughter was delighted about the day she spent with Robin. She was very approachable, personal & flexible. They both decided together how to spent the day based on my daughter's interests;a day she will never forget

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the wonderful review. It was a fun day and she was a delight.
