Check in was easy. Our tour guide, Rob is a retired history teacher, so he is very comfortable speaking in front of a group and dealing with all kinds of people. The tour stops were organized with time to explore and take pictures. Rob knew the history of our stops and had stories about each place. He really made the past come alive and included current events. The whispering gallery at Grand Central Station was my favorite little tidbit. I will not spoil the surprise for anyone, but it was a cool effect. The walking pace was not too strenuous; no hills or fast pace. What made this tour stand out was the subway ride. I wanted to become familiar with the subway system so that I would not need to take Uber or Lyft to each location I will visit for any future trips to New York. There was a couple from England, two brothers from Ireland, a lady from India, a man from Montenegro, and I was the lone American tourist. Rob is a wonderful tour guide, and I would highly recommend him to anyone .

Gary was amazing. I saw and learned about New York. It was a full day of adventure. It was so nice being shown around by a real New Yorker. The history he brought, and humor, kept the day moving at a good pace. Because of him, I know what places I am interested in exploring further. Kudos to a valuable tour and a very valuable guide.

We had great seats, The show was excellent from start to finish. It told a brief story of Michael Jackson’s life with well known songs thrown in along the way. All the different people who played Michael where very true to life with excellent singing voices

This was unbelievable, I’m not a big Harry Potter fan but the SE & story line was really good. Great cast & wonderful stage.

Simply do it! Have a drink beforehand and skip it in the theater. Really out of proportion 2 drinks 75,””
