Scheduling was easy - communication is top notch. This tour felt like an architecture tour rather than a child based building the city tour. We never got to subways at all. I guess I thought there would be more about actual building, not just architecture. Monica is a whirlwind and we blew through our tour before we realized it wasn't what we were expecting.
The tour down 42nd was great, loved how he pointed out interesting things in Grand Central. Loved the part where we saw the trains in the library. The tram to Roosevelt Island was unfortunately very packed with tourists, I didn't realize how much of a tourist spot that had become, but it was a great way to see the city. I'm still amazed that my 6 year old was entertained for 3 hours!
Mattico did an excellent job of keeping the tour interesting and manageable for children and grown-ups alike. The sketchbooks and drawing breaks were an excellent touch.
