Anette picked us up from the hotel as announced via WhatsApp. Since we had already looked at some of the sights she wanted to show on the tour the day before, she spontaneously planned an alternative tour. We took the subway downtown. Anette not only told us something about the city, its development and the people, but also reported something about her life.

We spent a very nice 5 hours with Anette our guide and discovered New York together. We learned more details and facts about buildings, districts and streets than we expected. Anette was very well informed and also very nice. In between there was always an opportunity to exchange a personal word....and all of that in German. Full marks from us ;)

Our city guide Marco showed us wonderful corners, highlights and interesting things about NY.

With his tips & tricks you can easily find your way around the remaining days. Gladly again
