I have searched for years to find a tour that provided the history of the Gilded Age and the mansions on Fifth Avenue. This year I finally had the pleasure of exploring the subject with Kevin as we walked from the Plaza Hotel to 88th St. I could not help myself as I took copious notes and photos to remember... More

The visit was great and interesting. We didn't see time go by. The guide spoke slowly and was easy to understand for us a french group. He also mentioned many anecdotes which made the visit even more lively. It's also possibe to adapt to our different demands when we book the tour so you can customize it. Perfect. I recommend...

My grandson saw where Washington inspired the troops with the reading of the Declaration of Indepedence and he stood where Washington took the oath of office. We walked the streets that Jefferson and Madison... More

We were a group of 4 who have been around NY most of our lives, but had not been to Harlem. Kevin was so knowledgeable about the history, community, entertainment and all the changes that have occurred up to the present. We learned so much and encourage everyone to take this wonderful tour.

I took the Lower Manhattan & Financial District tour with Ken. The tour was excellent. I learned about the history, architecture and the people who lived in the area. The tour was very interesting with stories and anecdotes about an important place in its formative time.
