“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.
“What a fantastic, well organised and informative tour. A must when you are in NYC. Thanks to our wonderful guide Maddie.”PEK
“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.
“Steve, our guide, gave us a lot of interesting facts about downtown New York. Also the way he leads you through the streets is very pleasant with always a humoristic touch. We can recommend the tour and the guide.”Eric D.
“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.”Zebra
“It was very informative! Our guide was very knowledgeable and had his own history with Wall Street! We learned things that we didn’t know we should learn. The length was just the right amount of time and our guide was very friendly and helpful!”Lisa H.
