“We've toured with RNYTs twice now, and have found them to be consistently excellent. This time we did the culturally-rich Williamsburg/LES tour. Our tour guide was Greg, who was a real DYNAMO. Greg has lived in Queens and Brooklyn for 26 years so knew the recent local scene as well as being fully versed in the emigration history of that portion of NYC. Thanks for the care and the tour Greg!”
“We took three fantastic tours with Shawn, who was an enthusiastic guide, full of knowledge and information about the city, past and present, and ready to answer any questions we had. The first day we walked Brooklyn, which we loved. The second day was the Lower East side and Williamsburg. The last day's tour was, Harlem and Morningside Heights. We would highly recommend these tours if you have a short time in NYC and want to see everything.”
