This was fantastic! Meeting place made very clear, our tour guide went beyond expectations, was extremely personable, and one of us wants to request him for a tour she plans on taking next summer.
We love Context tours! This is our 5th tour and we have been so impressed w the depth of knowledge with each guide. Ben was not well prepared or well versed on the subject. He was however, a pleasant person. If we had paid $49 on trip advisor, we would be satisfied. But, we pay extra for context and this time we were disappointed.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stroll through the history of the Upper East Side in the Gilded Age. Michelle is a fabulous storyteller—we love having her as our guide as she has such a passion for the history of NYC.
