Tour Testimonials

“A great tour to get a quick review on the history of Wall Street. If you choose to join this Wall Street Tour, you will definitely find out how efficient this tour is. Even though the tour lasts about an hour-and-a-half, it is very efficient for tourists who are the first visitors to Wall Street or NYC to get familiar with this area. Especially, explanations of the tour guide allowed me to have a basic understanding on the history of Wall Street.”

Park Junghoon

“The tour was very interesting and informative. Even if you go downtown / Wall Street, you’d never know many of the facts presented. Although it was extremely windy and rather chilly, Maddie did a great job keeping it interesting. I would definitely recommend.”

Mike K.

“I recently booked and completed this tour with my high school students when we were visiting NYC. Annaline and Randy were OUTSTANDING, friendly and knowledgeable tour guides. It’s always something to entertain high school students on a walking tour, but it is really something we you can do it, on a tour about Wall Street, in the pouring rain with high winds…..and they did it! They engaged my kids, and made the tour relevant to my students. They helped my bus driver find the right place and in general were just great people. When I go back to NYC, we will definitely do a tour with them again!”

Robby M.

“Very informative. Our tour guide was a very sweet lady. She was very knowledgeable. She said that her husband had worked on Wall Street for years and she knew her stuff! I loved all the facts, the kids really liked it too! Good for whole family!”

Tinna E.

“Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and very entertaining. I would highly recommend this tour, as walking through Wall Street initially can seem over rated, but after the tour you get a better sense of value and appreciation for some of the landmarks and history.”

D.N.

“There’s rich history and so much to see in this neighborhood, from the days of the Dutch to the market crash of 2008. Our guide, Steve, was a true entertainer. His experiences as a US Marine, trader on the floor of the stock exchange, and actor (to name a few) gave him a unique perspective. Great guy for conversation and not afraid to give you his opinion on all things New York.”
