  • 5 star ratingWorth your time and money The Hidden Gems of the Financial District was excellent. It delivered on the hidden gems promise! (No spoilers here.) Justin is an outstanding tour guide -- equal parts thorough and thoughtful. The visual aids that he uses throughout the tour ground the narrative. As repeat tour attendees, this was yet another experience of time and money well spent.

    Our guide Justin was super knowledgeable and gave use state of the art ear pieces which allowed us to hear him very well. He opened our eyes on so many pieces of history I had not idea were there, just around the corner from our office. Bravo!

  • 5 star ratingBest walking tour I've been on by far! My friends and I went on this tour because we are interested in architecture and urban planning. We learned a ton about the subway system and so many cool facts about old architecture in the Financial District. The tour ended with a trip through to the Oculus, and it was amazing to be able to look at the incredible architecture while hearing about the context of how and why it was built.

    I would highly recommend this to both tourists and New Yorkers who want to learn about the history of the Subway and the Financial District. Honestly, I had a big grin on my face throughout the entire tour.
