Tour guide was extremely knowledgable. He was funny and friendly, too!
Although I have lived in the NYC area for 34 years, there were places I had never been and historical information I did not know! Eye opening.

Fred certainly knows a lot about the history of NY - the tour was very interesting, and we got to see everything that we wanted to. Fred is quite prepared to answer any questions and goes out of his way to make the tour a good one for everyone.
