Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Jeff was such a knowledgeable tour guide. We saw so many buildings and he shared so much information about each one. We asked many questions and he was able to answer everything, We could tell that he really cared about his presentation. He was outgoing and fun to be with. I would strongly recommend this tour!

Easily the best tour we have done in NYC over the many years of visiting the city. Our tour guide Mark Venaglia made it that more special through his historical knowledge of the area, his enthusiasm, his love of the arts and his ability to tailor the tour on the spot to maximize our enjoyment and learning. It’s a must do tour and Mark made it happen. Don’t miss the library !

Had a wonderful tour with Mark. We had such a wonderful time and learned so much about New York. He showed us the buildings but also shared the stories and facts about the people who built them. He was a joy.
