Dave was friendly and knowledgeable.
Frank was very knowledgeable, personable, and fun!
The Greenwich Village tour exceeded our expectations. Michelle was personable and knowledgeable. The route of the tour was well/planned. We had been in Greenwich Village many times before but now, thanks to Michelle, we have a far deeper understanding of the history and architecture of The Village and knowledge of the significant characters who have shaped it and lived there than we ever had before. It was a very satisfying experience.
