Seeing the Statue was nice, but we spent too much time there. I would have liked to spend more time at Ellis Island. That said Ellis Island was a disappointment. There is so much potential for fascinating content and instead we were walked around a bit, told some interesting things and then the tour was over. Mandy left, and we still had 45 minutes left on our tour. We were all disappointed a hospital tour was not included. We did not get a feel for what the immigration experience was. I have taken many Context tours and was a little embarrassed I had talked up the tour to my kids. Fortunately, we had taken a Hamilton tour the day before with Context, and they knew how great tours with your company could be. Please restructure the content for the more discerning traveler. Mandy was very knowledgeable but seemed scattered. She would have been great in a hospital tour.
Mandy was phenomenal. She brought everything to life!
What a fantastic tour and experience! The tour and content were just what we were hoping for. We are locals and recommend it for other New Yorkers as well as visitors. We cannot say enough good things about our guide Ryan - he was incredibly knowledgeable, personable, and made the entire tour a special and memorable experience. We’re planning on trying to some of Ryan other NYC tours in the future.
