Thanks to tour guide Bob, this walking tour was the highlight of our 10 day trip to New York. Because we were a small group of 5, we could chat with Bob and discuss things we were seeing rather than simply being spoken at for 2 and a half hours! The subject of just how New York Midtown came to look how it does today is fascinating, and at times amusing. We came away with a greater understanding of the city, and how to spot features previously unnoticed. I uge you to seek out Bob and take one of his tours, best time and money you'll spend in NYC!

This was the second tour I did with Rob during my most recent to NYC. He is an excellent tour guide with a great knowledge of the history and planning of the city. This tour made me look up as I wandered the streets of the city and gave me a greater appreciation of why the city looks the way it does. Rob shared some fantastic stories and was a real delight to explore the city with. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see the city in a slightly different light!
