Great tour!
, Jun 2019
We booked a private architecture tour in NY. We liked it a lot. Abhinav was a very knowledgeable, obliging guide. He showed us some of the great architectures of 42nd street. It is clear that he is passionate about architecture. A perfect start to explore NY. Thx for the super tip on a hidden gem in grand central. Highly recommended! P and P50 Belgium.
Not much of an expert

Our guide was far from an expert--disappointing to a well educated group of men thirsty for specifics.
