What people are saying about SoHo, Manhattan

Thomas, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and personable. He spoke with such enthusiasm and provided historical anecdotes that made the area come to life. He was very personable and encouraged everyone to ask questions. My husband has been to NYC numerous times and enjoyed the tour just as much as my daughters and I did. I would love to tour a different area next time as long as Thomas was giving the tour. He made it a super fun day for us all!

The Tour ear just great. Our tour guide Alex showed us real insider tips of the region, told exciting stories, responded to our needs and gave us an unforgettable time. This is how you discover the neighborhood from a completely different perspective. I am incredibly grateful for this and can only recommend this to everyone.

Ellie is AMAZING!!!! So knowledgeable, and friendly. Full disclosure. I didn't want to go on this tour, I was just going for my wife. It ended up being one of my favorite activities in New York. Ellie had so many incredible facts and historical stories. I absolutely had a blast!!

Claire was an amazing tour guide! She took us to SoHo, Little Italy, and Chinatown and told us nice historical facts that really added to the experience. She even gives time to take a break and explore during certain parts of the tour

Surprise, we were only two for this visit which therefore became private. The guide showed us the typical places of each district with lots of anecdotes. Meeting place very easy to find.
