“My wife and I have been to NYC at least 10 times, and this tour of Lower Manhattan was one of our best trips. Nathan was our guide - and he was awesome. We learned more interesting facts in 3.5 hours than you would touring any museum. From pop culture to the American Revolutionary War, to architecture, and humor - he covered it all very well. We highly recommend this tour!”
“We did not think our tour ten years ago with Luke could be topped. We were wrong. Nathan was amazing, patient and totally flexible with myself, husband and my Mom. We went for a stroll in lower Manhattan and got to be REAL New Yorkers for a half a day. My only dilemma is when we come back who to ask for! We might have to hire Luke AND Nathan BOTH for a real New Yorker pub crawl! Thank you for The New Yorker hospitality, these Canadians will be talking about it for months.”
