Jeff was such a knowledgeable tour guide. We saw so many buildings and he shared so much information about each one. We asked many questions and he was able to answer everything, We could tell that he really cared about his presentation. He was outgoing and fun to be with. I would strongly recommend this tour!

Easily the best tour we have done in NYC over the many years of visiting the city. Our tour guide Mark Venaglia made it that more special through his historical knowledge of the area, his enthusiasm, his love of the arts and his ability to tailor the tour on the spot to maximize our enjoyment and learning. It’s a must do tour and Mark made it happen. Don’t miss the library !

Had a wonderful tour with Mark. We had such a wonderful time and learned so much about New York. He showed us the buildings but also shared the stories and facts about the people who built them. He was a joy.
