    The Guide was very nice, communicative, polite and friendly. In a short time he showed the most interesting and beautiful places. We liked it a lot.

    Our guide was a lovely lovely lady. She was open to our requests and helpful with day to day info such as the subway and tipping. I particularly enjoyed the Highline and Chelsea markets as our plans to get to them later never eventuated. I can definitely recommend Beth as a NYC welcome. We found out later in our tour that this was her first tour so I expect that her wonderful service will only get better
