“A great tour for anyone who wants to escape the tourist traps and get a real sense of the city. Trey is a smart, funny, energetic tour guide who conveyed true affection for the city. He expertly chaperoned our small group through the subway, the wonderful sights and smells of Little Italy and Chinatown, historic cemeteries, magnificent parks and landmarks, and beautiful hidden nooks of the village. The highest praise I can give this tour is to say that I am no longer intimidated to explore the city on my own.”
