Rafael picked some really great art for the tour. He took us to 7 very interesting and different galleries with everything from Video to Painting to Yarn Crocheting. He was knowledgable and managed a group well. We would have never found these galleries on our own

Let me start with the basics: 1. Mr.Rafael Risemberg needs to take a shower and dry clean that puffy winter jacket when he is around his paying costumers. While you do not hire the professor to give you a runway show or smell him (but rather guide you through the galleries of his choice) you do have to stand his... More

Tour in TriBeCa 11/23/13. Guide seemed unprepared, commentary was trite and uneducated as to background and significance of art viewed. Almost entirely relied on New York Times reviews. Shame, Rafael has gotten great reviews previously.

We had a great time on the lower east side tour. Dr Risemberg selected 7 galleries that each provided a very different experience. We would never have found these places on our own and we may have been too timid to go into some of them w/o the group. You have the added benefit of seeing the neighborhood and finding... More

We took the Chelsea Gallery tour with Dr. Rafael Risemberg. It was a great experience. Dr. Risemberg reviews the current offerings of the Chelsea galleries and picks the 7 best for his tour. We visited 7 galleries in two hours, so the tour is fast paced and covers all different types of art. Dr. Risemberg did his homework in advance... More

Staying in West Village

Neighbourhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
