Check in was easy. Our tour guide, Rob is a retired history teacher, so he is very comfortable speaking in front of a group and dealing with all kinds of people. The tour stops were organized with time to explore and take pictures. Rob knew the history of our stops and had stories about each place. He really made the past come alive and included current events. The whispering gallery at Grand Central Station was my favorite little tidbit. I will not spoil the surprise for anyone, but it was a cool effect. The walking pace was not too strenuous; no hills or fast pace. What made this tour stand out was the subway ride. I wanted to become familiar with the subway system so that I would not need to take Uber or Lyft to each location I will visit for any future trips to New York. There was a couple from England, two brothers from Ireland, a lady from India, a man from Montenegro, and I was the lone American tourist. Rob is a wonderful tour guide, and I would highly recommend him to anyone .

Absolutely outstanding night's entertainment. From the décor of the theatre to the magnificence of the show's energy everything was top class. Beware the merchandising pricing 40 dollars for a tshirt and 35 dollars for a large cocktail! Despite this the night and the performances were outstanding! Treaured memories.

Billy was a great tour guide and very knowledgeable with a great sense of humor. Great way to see the highlights of New York City when you only have a limited amount of time.

Claire was lots of fun, full of energy, and a great storyteller. We learned quite a bit too!

Great if you love the theatre and shows and Chris made it really fun
