Everything worked without any problems. It was easy to find the meeting point, there were toilet breaks right at the beginning. Afterwards we set off and we told a bit about the general history. It was very interesting information. Afterwards we drove to the houses and walked around the neighborhood. Unfortunately we didn't take part of the beautiful road with us, but we were able to separate ourselves from the group a bit. The connection is easy to find again.

A brill experience seeing all of the houses and a different area of New York. We had a very knowledge and witty tour guide who was informative ans accommodating I think his name was Antonio. Thank you Antonio 😊🇺🇸🙌🏼👨‍👩‍👦🙏🏻

I really liked the city but I didn't know that I had to book in advance to go to a Broadway play. Otherwise everything was very good

The tour guide did not speak good English and was hard to understand.

Amazing tour from start to finish we all loved it! Kids and adults!
