This was an amazing tour. We had a great tour guide named Freddy (I believe). Very informative. The houses were absolutely beautiful! Our tour guide carried a light in case we got lost. And of course we were the ones to get lost. Didn’t realize how many people were going to be there and how easy it is to get lost in the crowd. However we were able to do our own thing at our speed abs still catch up with our group. We were able to get great pictures and the pictures at Brooklyn bridge (or Manhattan bridge) were gorgeous! It was a fabulous tour! Highly recommend it!

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 :)

I had a great time! The tour guide was fun and entertaining. He guided us smoothly and seamlessly. Would definitely recommend to everyone.

Nice, very informative. Would definitely do again !

The guide was perfect and very knowledgeable.Thanks
