I have been a New Yorker my entire life, born and raised in Brooklyn. I wanted to know more about my city, especially it’s creepier lore as we move closer to Halloween. I was blown away by the tour guide’s knowledge and how much history is stored in places that I pass everyday. In addition, the guide was very friendly, enthusiastic, and eager to share information. The tour was accessible, informative, and a lot of fun. I would definitely recommend!

We enjoyed the sights and the history of this tour. We were hoping to meet the ghost dog, but we settled for a great walk through Greenwich, the interesting stories of haunting from our guide Liz, and the perfect eerie drizzly weather, sans paranormal encounters. Maybe next time :)

Debi was an amazing tour guide that loves NY and was full of information about the architecture around Rockefeller Center. Also she loves to slip in little side stories especially about Abby Rockefeller ( his wife )

The guide was fantastic.I’ve always had a good tour with GetYourGuide!

Highly recommend. Ask for Siobhan to be your guide!
