Richard was great. He gave as an excellent tour and lots of explanations. The Oculus building, how WallStreet is connected, where the main banks are, how the oil crisis started and why, etc. He gave us insights about how the stock market works, commodities, different types of contracts, etc. Not just that, we visited several places including the NY Stock Exchange (from outside), Trinity Church, the Oculus building and its surroundings, etc. Super complete tour and Richard was very passionate about what he explained. We enjoyed our time with him and with the tour.

Really glad I chose to take part in this tour! Richard was such a great guide and provided us with valuable information on financial district and good explanations of financial contracts. We visited the key buildings and sites in financial district and were shown pictures, for example of how Manhattan looked back in 2001 during 9/11 attacks. I can only recommend this tour!!

You cannot go wrong booking this tour. We are still discussing what we learned 24hrs later. We have three kids ages, 11, 13 and 15 and they loved every minute. Richard is brilliant at explaining complex economic concepts in ways include all levels of understanding and interest. We have been on many tours and this was simply the best. If you are lucky enough to visit New York, I hope you can get this tour… we are so happy we did :)
