Benjamin was fantastic with great energy! His was packed with information, facts and stories about Old New York. The whole tour was so much fun and super interesting. Our 11 and 13 year old kids had a great time learning about this portion of US (and pre-US) history. We appreciated the excellent mix of outside and inside things to look at - a short walk through a historical building or pub really brought things to life, as did Benjamin's stories of how life worked in those days. We were riveted and appreciated his interest in our interest! We had done a Freedom Trail tour in Boston in the spring and Benjamin made many connections that enriched the content. Benjamin did a great job and gave us a new appreciation for this history of the Financial District.
The tour was just disappointing. The facts were less detailed than the plaques on the street. The pace was slow and confusing. We were all expecting a guided tour and didn’t get that. We take private tours fairly often and won’t be booking again. We cut it short and downloaded a self guided tour off of Google.
Ben was great. Perfectly tailored the tour to appeal to both a 10 year old and her 43 year old dad. Good pace, fun, learned a ton. Will tell my friends visiting the city to do the tour too.
