Cherie and Alice were both fantastic! I took my 10 year old daughter on a trip to NY and they both did such a great job of engaging with her. We both learned lots of cool facts and loved it!

Our family of 4 (couple and 2 adult children) knew we had a big day ahead of us to see all of these sites and our 21-year old son wasn't feeling well due to bad food the prior day. Rob was so nice and helped our son out so he didn't have to drop out of the tour. Not only is Rob incredibly knowledgeable and experienced but he also had some of his own side stories and photos that really added to the intrigue. We went to additional sites along the way including the Oculus, St. Paul's, and FDNY 10 that added to our enjoyment of the day. He even suggested a great place to get lunch in an area that he knew was of interest to us. The 9/11 Museum left us all speechless and was very touching! Never forget! Although we were very tired at the end of the day, this tour is one we will always remember not only for the inspiring places we saw, but because we had a great guide that we won't soon forget. Great job, Rob!

It was our fist time in New York and our tour guide Katherine made the entire experience SO worth it! Her knowledge, patience and overall advise and everlasting smile is worth mentioning. The daytrip is extremely long and our feet hurt like hell, but it was definitely the highlight of our trip!

We had a wonderful time seeing and learning all we could via this tour! The Statue Of Liberty was breathtaking and Ellis Island was something to behold! The Lower Manhattan snd 9/11 was quite a solemn experience! I don't think anyone could have done a better job honoring those whose lives were lost ! We had Rob and Alice and they were equally AMAZING guides!

Enjoyed our day with both tour guides. Jacob and Rob were great. They were insightful and brought life to the history they were sharing. Would have liked a little more time on Ellis Island to explore, however. 9/11 memorial tour was also good. Rob spoke personally of that fateful day making it even more poignant. Thank you for a good day overall.

The Tour was wonderful and the Guides were exceptional.. especially Cherie in the morning tour. This was an exhausting tour with all the steps and walking. I would not recommend during this all in one day again. I would definitely do it in two half days.
