Cale was an awesome guide and this tour packed EVERYTHING crucial to NYC into a half day. Be prepared to walk, but you have the opportunity to hear history rarely told about NYC, and see early pictures that explain the city's structure and politics of today. It is a fascinating tour. I worked in NYC and I felt like this was the best tour even I learned so much and was finally able to see all the "little things" I had meant to. Finished the day with a carriage ride through Central Park and a dinner in Hell's Kitchen and it was a PERFECT into to WELCOME TO THE BIG APPLE! Thanks Cale for being a great ambassador

We did our research and found the reviews of this tour group to be excellent. Jim, our tour guide was a wonderful . He will energetic, highly informative, and his love and appreciation of NYC clearly showed. We learned so much from him about NYC, things both my wife and I (who have been here many times) did not know. Definitely well worth the money. Thank you Jim for a memoral tour!

A very nice visit. We learn a lot of stories and we discover a nice neighborhood. Our guide Isabella is full of energy and passionate.

What can I say? Our tour guide Tom was just the BEST! Intelligent, knowledgeable, engaging, respectful of all tour members (some with limited physical ability), and seriously FUNNY! You have to do this tour. Just the right amount of time to get a fabulous overview of the city, and with the bus picking you up to take you to the furthest points, it was perfectly calibrated. Thoroughly recommend this tour, and especially doing it with Tom if you can.

Dan was a great tour guide! He took us to so many interesting spots and had wonderful knowledge to share. I would highly recommend this tour, just make sure you really are able to walk 5 miles.

Our tour guide Jim was very personable, easy to talk to and ask questions of, and very knowledgable. As a wheelchair user I found this tour perfect - Jim was able to show us so many wonderful buildings that we would never have noticed and adapted the tour to account for all the wheelchair ramps and entrances to buildings/ferry/subway that I needed. I did not feel once that being in a wheelchair on the tour was an inconvenience and will be recommending this tour and company to many Wheelchair user friends who were asking about my NY experience. It was a long day but oh so worth it! Thank you Experience First, and thank you Jim!

TaithTeulu

A fabulous tour! Jim was our guide and he had so much knowledge to impart! I am a wheelchair user and confirmed with Experience First that this tour was wheelchair accessible. Although Jim wasn’t made aware in advance I was in a wheelchair it didn’t phase him and he made sure wherever we went we used the wheelchair entrances. We saw everything we wanted to see, had a great lunch of pizza, and all in all, a fantastic day! Thank you Jim, you were the perfect tour guide!

Highly recommended!! John Bow was informative and fun. He engaged with all of us individually in an age appropriate manner, kept the group on time and focused on what our tour was about. Very knowledgeable and fun. Be ready to walk quickly but plenty of stops to take in the sites.
