My teenage son & I discovered the Superheroes of New York tour while on our first trip to NYC & it was his favorite part of our trip. Luke was so knowledgeable about the history of DC, Marvel & the city & even sang for us as we walked around.

Fine, but we don't stop at Blair's house; Nate or even dan or la we don't even go ahead. I wonder if doing the walking tour by his means is not more profitable

Super guide - did it fantastically with a lot of enthusiasm - a great experience! My 14-year-old daughter was fascinated and at the same time a great city tour

Amazing guide. Even the members of the family who are not massive superhero fans loved it!

Definetely worth the money if you're a gossip girl fan :)
