Katherine gave us a super good tour which exceeded our expectations. She does her home work on the history , is a great tour guide , and a joy to walk around the city with. Providing a fun and dramatic “backstory” to the history of these buildings helps the culture of the various time periods unfold. I would love to go on other tours with Katherine and would highly recommend this tour to all categories of tourist whether you have a keen interest in preservation or just NYC. This is well spent time on a great tour!

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour experience . We hope to be able to get into the city again for another tour with Mark. We will look at the city differently on subsequent visits thanks to Mark and the knowledge he passed on to us. It was indeed a pleasure. His enthusiasm and love for this amazing city is contagious! Mark exceeded our expectations! We learned so much and genuinely enjoyed his company. He is a rock star and will have our vote for Mayor should he decide to throw his hat in the ring!

When we first booked our trip for this tour, we looked forward to an informative and insightful walking tour to learn about midtown Manhattan, perhaps sharing the experience with a handful of other visitors.

We were, of course, delighted to discover that we were the only people on the tour that day. As a result, we got to enjoy two hours of quality and insightful 1:1 time with our guide, Jonathan, as he regaled us with knowledge about the architecture and history of midtown. Jonathan clearly had and has a passion for this region of Manhattan and that was particularly exemplified when we did an end-of-tour walk through the New York Public Library special exhibition at the end of the tour.

Our tour guide, Katherine, was wonderful and shared not only a historical overview of the construction of buildings on the tour, but also the sentiment during the period. Especially for someone like me from a different generation, getting a better sense of the mood during those times was helpful. I also appreciated this tour since my guest and I were able to ask more detailed questions that Katherine was interested in answering :)! Always a plus. My guest and I would gladly do another tour with Katherine in the future. We recommend that both New Yorkers and visitors check out tours with Katherine!

Katherine was an awesome tour guide. She was interesting, well prepared and guided us through some amazing buildings and architecture. She personalized the tour and provided us with excellent visuals and really fun facts. We worked and lived in Manhattan and thought we “knew it all” and we were so mistaken. We really did not the tour to end. I highly recommend this tour.

I was blown away with how wonderful this was! I was sure I could enjoy the architecture just walking around in my own. I’m so glad I didn’t. Our guide Katherine was absolutely incredible. She went above and beyond answering all our questions. She was extremely knowledgeable about the history of nyc. I couldn’t recommend her tours more.

Mark is a wonderful guide -- very knowledgeable and passionate about his subject, but also open to learning from the experiences of those who are on the tour. Loved our spontaneous foray into the Little Church Around the Corner, the NY Public Library, and the mysteries of Atlas! I would definitely recommend Mark and would be happy to go on other tours with him.
