What a great activity to do. It was our last night in New York and we enjoyed ourselves enormously. We went to Speakeasy and Prohibition bars that we would not have known about. Had some really nice cocktails and food. The guide was great knowing a lot about the topic and very friendly but also professional. We both a great time

We had tour guide Jenna and she was excellent! She really knew her prohibition knowledge and put such a fun spin on the tour considering there was such a small group of us! She also was a lot of fun when we were walking from place to place. Would recommend the tour if you want a fun little night out in New York!

My family had an amazing time Friday with the Tour. Great information at each location and wonderful suggestions for meal and drink. Will definitely book again. Thank you
