You cannot go wrong booking this tour. We are still discussing what we learned 24hrs later. We have three kids ages, 11, 13 and 15 and they loved every minute. Richard is brilliant at explaining complex economic concepts in ways include all levels of understanding and interest. We have been on many tours and this was simply the best. If you are lucky enough to visit New York, I hope you can get this tour… we are so happy we did :)

Excellent tour. Our guide was knowledgeable. The history of the big financial institutions, while sitting and looking at them, was memorable. Our guide knew where to take the perfect pictures (of the bull, of fearless, of the NYSE, etc). The pace was leisurely. It was quiet due to COVID and many workers still working from home. The tour was outside and inside (the Oculus is very cool). Our guide knew how to navigate the buildings to be inside for a good portion of the tour. It was a memorable tour, and I high recommend it.

Richard has to be our best tour guide in New York and we have been to almost every attraction here. Definitely have to request for Richard if you are planning on taking the Wall Street Financial District tour or if any tour he has to offer. He is very knowledgeable about basically everything. If you are confused about where to eat definitely go to any of the places he recommends. We appreciate you Richard!
