It was intriguing and fun. Our guide, Eric (?), was tall, thin and wore a burgundy cap. He is a walking encyclopedia. My 12 year old grand-son said he thought the tour was the best part of the trip, my 8 year old grand-daughter who didn't want to come said "It was really fun." An extra bonus for me was the interesting architecture and movie trivia.

Great tour. Brian was very knowledgeable and interacted with everyone really well. The only thing I would say - I don’t think there is a need to pay for the premium seating.

The tour was a lot of fun. We saw a large part of the city, and the tour guide was very personable. It was my 10 year old’s favorite part of our trip to New York.

Percy had great energy, and really knew his stuff! This was the perfect surprise for my comic book lover of a boyfriend on his birthday weekend

Percy was so passionate and knowledgable about the subject and so engaging. Our kids aged 7, 12 and 15 loved it.
