This was one of the most memorable experiences we had during our NYC visit! Laurie, our guide, was wonderful and she was so knowledgeable, fun, and kind. I can’t say enough about how she made us all feel, calling us by our first names and by the end of the tour, we felt like we were saying goodbye to friends, people we would love to meet up with again. She was so gracious that she offered to take my sister and I with her and our first subway ride and then used her metro-card! Again, we can’t express our thanks enough for such a wonderful outing and would encourage anyone to take this tour with Laurie for an experience that will stay with you for a long time. Loved it!!!

Super trip with plenty of background information. Our guide always had the best spots in mind regarding coffee, lunch or a very much deserved ice ccremeclose to the end of our about 30-35 miles and 6 hours trip. Bikes are good. Give them a proper ride on the yard before the tour actually starts to check the shift gear, tire pressure,... as you will ride all day long and you want to be comfortable. No need to bring water bottles, as there is always a chance during the trip to get one in the neighborhoods. Don't forget sunscreen! Will come back for another trip!
