On this tour we really enjoyed going into places which we wouldn't normally have walked into. The foyers of some of the buildings were fascinating, and we loved the basement of the Chrysler building. Our guide was enthusiastic, but not an expert. He seemed to...More

Glenn Grasso was prompt, courteous and above all knowledgeable! We choose the walking tour in FiDi (Wall Street financial district) because both my husband and adult son are American History buffs. Glenn was observant enough to notice when my husband needed a "bench break" because...More
