Meet up with your guide at the United Nations in the afternoon, beginning the two-hour tour with a stroll down 42nd Street. Check out the apartment of the Green Goblin, and take a trip past the Daily News Building, used as a filming location in the original ‘Superman’ film starring Christopher Reeve.

You’ll then get a ‘behind-the-scenes’ look at a bar known as a famous hangout for New York’s comic artists. Also along 42nd Street are the Chrysler Building and Grand Central Terminal (with ‘Stark Tower’ looming nearby).

Continue along Park Avenue, stopping to explore the historic heart of ‘Publishers’ Row,’ birthplace of some of the world’s most famous comics. You’ll see the location of the offices of Will Eisner and Bob Kane, and then see filming locations used in TV shows like ‘Gotham’ and ‘Daredevil.’

Throughout the trip, you’ll hear plenty of fascinating stories and insights into comic book history from your guide, including details about how Kryptonite was created, where Batman was saved from cancellation, and the location of keepsake left behind for NYC by The Avengers.

The tour was fine, quite a large group and perhaps not as many sights as we thought / hoped might be included. The guide RJ was fine, some good stories.

What a great way to see NYC through the eyes of our enthusiastic teen. Our guide Patrick knows his stuff inside out, answered all questions expertly and was so much fun to just hang with. I love to get the stories behind the stories and that was a great family friendly way to do it. I highly recommend.

Hannah was very fun and energetic! She was well prepared with a notebook full of images to parallel the places that she was showing us. She answered all questions that my son had, with enthusiasm and an obvious knowledge and love for the topic. Thank you Hannah for giving us a very memorable tour.

Langweilig

Die Tour war sehr langweilig und langatmig. Wir haben die Tour nach einer Stunde verlassen. Wir haben bis dahin 3 Häuser von aussen betrachtet. War weder spannend noch haben wir irgendetwas mit Superhelden gesehen. Der Tourführer hatte uns Comicbilder aus einem Buch gezeigt. Sehr Fragwürdig, und nicht empfehlenswert.
