★★★★★ “Fabulous Tours!!!”

Max and Ryan are wonderful!!! Our girls' trip scheduled a walking tour of the Financial district with Ryan on one day and Central Park with Max on another day. Ryan did an excellent job providing the history of the area in storytelling mode. I cannot wait to bring my children back for Ryan to make history come alive for them!
Max's Central Park tour provided interesting facts about the Park that you could never find on your own. From history to present day, he was a wealth of information about the park.
Thanks guys for the tour and can't wait to do it again with the family!!

★★★★★ “Walking Tour of Historic Downtown and Central Park”

First, I must say I booked two walking tours with CityRover based on tripadvisor reviews And believe me we were not disappointed. Visiting NY with 4 friend, two of whom had never been to NYC.
Our first morning with toured Historic Downtown with Ryan. He was fabulous. Very nice and personable, but hugely knowledgeable on the history of NY and that area. Gave us tons of fun facts, which we would have never known if we mindlessly walked about the area on our own. Lot of history, and made it very easy to ask questions. Our tour was just perfect, would not change one thing about it!

The next day we did Central Park with Max. This tour was fabulous as well. Lots of interesting park features that I have walked right by before and never noticed. Great information about the forming of Central Park. We all loved this tour equally as well. Thank you Max!

I will use CityRovers every time I am in NYC!!!

★★★★★ “Highly recommended”

We recently went on the Historic NYC Downtown and Wall Street tour with Ryan as our guide and really enjoyed it. We learnt a lot of interesting things about New York's older and more modern history, from New Amsterdam to 9/11. The size of our group (13 people) was perfect, and for me that really made this walking tour something special (it's no fun to be part of a big group that's in the way for the locals all the time). We made a short stop at a café halfway into the tour and were offered some snacks by our guide, and this made the experience even better. But if you go on a cold day like we did, make sure to bring warm clothes! Even on a relatively warm day it can get cold when you're walking around lower Manhattan for three+ hours.

Tour FAQs:

How strenuous is this walk? This walk covers about 3 miles on foot in a little over 3 hours.  The terrain is flat.  You’ll be on your feet most of the time, though we will take a break at a coffee shop in the middle of the tour for a bathroom break and optional snacks/refreshments (not included).  However, we try to maintain a steady walking pace to cover all the areas of interest.  So if you think you might find it difficult to keep up at a moderate walking speed with the rest of the group, please consider a private tour with us, which can be tailored to suit your pace and fitness level.

What About Kids? Our public tours are not ideal for young children, as they involve a lot of walking and cover topics geared to adults.  If you would like to tour with us and have children ages 10 and younger, please contact us about a private tour.   That said, there are 2 “child” tickets ($25 each) available for each public tour for children ages 12 and under.

Meeting Point: Detailed meeting point instructions will be emailed to you once your reservation has been processed.   The tour starts downtown near Bowling Green and ends near the 9/11 Memorial and Museum.

Stops: There will be at least 1 restroom break during our walk.  Each participant will also be offered a complimentary bottle of water and a small snack on the walk.  A meal prior to the tour is recommended.  During cold or inclement weather, we may visit historic buildings like Federal Hall Memorial Museum, Trinity Church, or Saint Paul’s Chapel.

Weather: Our public tours take place rain or shine, barring a severe storm in the forecast, in which case we would email or call you and offer options to switch to another tour or reschedule.  If severe weather prevents us from leading this tour and you are unable to switch or reschedule to another, then we would issue you a refund for the tour in question.

Are gratuities included? Guide gratuities are not included in the tour price, so if you enjoy your tour, tips are very much appreciated.
