Jordan is, without a doubt, the best way to be introduced to New York City and her illustrious history.

It was amazing how much we were able to pack into several hours - from a fun, fact filled tour of the base of the Statue of Liberty which others listened in on, ha! to walking through Ellis Island and hearing stories we still quote, notably how the river was 'protection' from the ills at the hospital. Visiting Trinity Church which is home to Alexander and Eliza Hamilton's resting places, all while discussing the musical and its impact was surreal. He snuck in lots of little stops along the way which never crossed our mind Wall Street, Fearless Girl/Raging Bull, Trump building while walking to scheduled stops.

Jordan was prompt, incredibly friendly, efficient, and taught us how to properly life hack lines at tourist destinations He worked with us to have extra time when taking photos and was accommodating whenever we needed a rest or drink. We highly recommend going on tour with him if you can.

PS: It's not very often you can go back to your hotel room and see your tour guide appear in the latest season of Orange Is the New Black

Well, what can I say.. I have lived in New York for 10 years and finally did the tour with my family... what an amazing experience! Patrick, our guide, was outstanding and full of energy, a true story teller he is an actor after all:. Its not easy to keep grown up teenagers engaged, but he did it a marvelous job... and no better way to experience New York history in a day than this. Many highlights.. from the making of the Statue of Liberty to the 9/11 Memorial and One World Observatory.. Thanks so much for a wonderful day!

Fantastic tour, met Sean at the agreed location and on time, after the introductions we were straight in the tour. Sean was very knowledgeable with regards Lower Manhattan, Liberty and Ellis Islands, both me and my wife loved the presentation of the tour that Sean had put together, very informative. Visited a number of buildings we didn't expect see, including St Paul's Church and the Holy Trinity Church. Sean made sure we had good access to Ellis and Liberty Islands, avoiding most of the main queue's, same with boarding and getting off the ferries to and from the Islands. Not going to go into details about the 911 memorial, just an amazing place and difficult to comment on, but the new One World World Trade Centre was literilly out of this world, even though it was a bit cloudy on the 102nd floor during our visit, but still loads to see. Loved the tour, big thank you to Viator and Sean from Top Dog for a fantastic day.
