“ Tl;dr - highly recommended, super fun tour! ”

Tl;dr - highly recommended, super fun tour! Now that’s out of the way, let's start with the initial setup. Was traveling solo and it's my first time in NYC. I wanted a local guide, so I don't have to look at my phone every 2 minutes for directions and context. Whilst covid restrictions were relaxed, was still not comfortable with large groups; her price is simply perfect for a solo tour. Communications was fast and efficient (I honestly don't think this woman sleeps!) and we were able to work out a customized plan for the tour quickly. We started the tour at around 9 am from my hotel and ended at approx. 1430. Julie is extremely knowledgeable and funny. Honestly felt more like having a nice stroll and chat with a long-lost friend. Topics of discussion ranges from the founding of the United States of America, New York City gentrification all the way to Wu Tang Clan! She’s an absolute riot, and Jules - no, I tried a nice NY style bagel later and it's way better than the Montreal style bagel we had for lunch! Did my feet hurt? YES! Did I see all I wanted to see? Positive. In fact, we saw the statue of liberty two ways; from the overcrowded ferry and from an almost empty paid ferry. Did the pictures come up a treat? ******* worthy - though I still chuckle remembering our distain for the many-many ******* models we met during the tour. Will I do it again? Absolutely! Loved it and will bring the missus next time. In short, if you want a super fun, knowledgeable tour guide you can't go wrong with Julie. Two thumbs up!

Julia:

Thank you, Maslan! What a super fun day we had! I thoroughly enjoyed the sightseeing and conversation - and my feet hurt, too - but in a good way :) Really appreciate the great review and hope to see you again!
