Chris was great. Knowledgeable, easy going, and made the experience educational and fun. I would highly recommend him.
Frank was so engaging and knowledgeable—the perfect ambassador for NYC. I felt like my architecture tour was an excuse to step out of the crowd, slow down a beat, and appreciate the cityscape instead of rushing by. Frank has tons of dates and details at his fingertips, but his tour would serve as a great midtown orientation for anyone (not just architecture nerds). You can tell he’s guided people from all over the world and has a NYC historical or pop cultural reference for everyone to connect with. Highly recommend and I’d happily book another next time I’m in town!
August was an outstanding guide. He is knowledgeable and articulate.He was able to bring the history of New York to life in an entertaining yet informative way!
