Benjamin was fabulous! We enjoyed every minute of our tour and learned a lot.
It was excellent. Berfu was wonderful!
I have taken Context’s High Line tour before. August was SO much better than last guide. He is knowledgeable and personable. And we loved his architectural expertise! He answered all our questions. All around, an excellent experience!
