I just loved the opportunity to explore so many of the neighborhoods and out-of-the-way sites in New York City, and our guide Ray was fantastic! He was always interesting and entertaining, and extremely helpful when we wanted to take off on our own. The hearing devices were a great help during our group wanderings, especially when getting on and off the subway. The High-Line was a wonderful new way to see the city, and the walk across the Brooklyn Bridge was a perfect ending. I can't wait to sign up for the Five Boroughs program as well!

This is a wonderful excursion for anyone interested in seeing NYC is a completely different light! I learned about some of the individual neighborhoods and their history while walking their streets. The staff for this excursion were very good, very knowledgeable, very friendly, and very accommodating -- a plus for this type of program. I heartily endorse this program in it'c current format and suggest not tampering with it.
