Our tour still paying dividends

Hi Thea and Iain! My family toured with you back on Dec 20th, and I wanted you both to know that we continued to follow your recommendations when we returned to NYC the week before Mother’s Day. We were able to visit the Frick Collection and the Met museum (including the clearance area in the basement) — based on your advice back in December. We greatly enjoyed both museums! We also returned to the Bethesda Fountain, did a walk through The Ramble, visited the lobby of the Chrysler Building, returned to Grand Central Station, and even made a trip up to Bar Sixty-Five in the Rockefeller Center.

We thought of you as we viewed the architectural details on many buildings in Midtown — wishing you were with us again to explain the details and history of the buildings! We wanted you to know how our tour with both of you is still paying dividends these 5 months later!!

Thank you again so much,
D.P. in Virginia, USA

Many thanks… and 5 stars for a 1st class and fun tour!

Iain and Thea,

Grace and I have returned from our wonderful NYC getaway that was made all the more so by you! Your tour was the highlight of our visit to the Big Apple and I can’t thank you enough for all of the thought and planning you put into making sure we had a great time. We saw everything on our lists and then some. I especially appreciate the extra effort you put into the special, off-the-beaten-path sight-seeing that Grace requested. Your knowledge of the city and its history is remarkable (and your energy and passion are infectious) and moreover, you made the whole day fun, relaxed, easy and safe. As a mom and a tourist, I couldn’t ask for anything more.

We will most certainly reach out as we’re planning our next trip… as Grace has informed me that we have to visit at least two more times to see the “rest of the city.” She has also declared that we will “need Thea and Iain to help us make the most of it.” I second that!

Warmest and best regards,
Trina

P.S. The Central Park biking tour was EXCELLENT! Thanks for that tip as well.

Excellent – Thank you, from ‘The Walkiest Group!”

We booked the private  tour and it was the best tour we have have ever been on.
Our guide was Thea, who immediately made us feel at ease, welcoming the questions we had, and providing a great perspective of the sights we visited. The tour was at a really good pace, and Thea was keen to make sure we were fed and watered, but we were all enjoying the tour so much we only stopped for lunch.Thea’s aim was for us to feel like we were walking around New York with a friend. Mission achieved! After our tour, Thea sent some names and addresses for some bars and restaurants that she thought would be good for our group.Thea’s final comment to us was that we were her ‘walkiest group ever’ as we just walked and walked – thanks for the compliment!

Very highly recommended, and we’ll be back for more in 2017!

Great tour with Thea

This was our first tour experience  – and it was a great one! We have been several times to NYC my husband and myself..however, this was our first trip with our four girls (age 11, 12, 15 and 16). Thanks to Thea, our private guide, we saw places that were unknown to us. It felt like walking in the city with a friend. Recommended!

Loved this tour

This was our family’s first visit to New York.  Our guide Thea was brilliant, really friendly, knowledgeable and full of interesting stories from past and present. We saw places we would never have found or even known about, and learned so much in our time together. Thea listened to the things that we were interested in – my husband, myself and our 2 teens 17 &14 all thoroughly enjoyed the tour and I would definitely recommend it. I found the company very helpful from the start, answering questions etc, I really feel they want to do a good job and in our opinion they succeed!

Great Private Tour with Thea

This was a great way to start our visit. Thea met us at our hotel and took me and my three sisters on the private tour. She showed us how to navigate the subway system and answered all our questions. We had a blast. She went at our pace as she showed us the “Real New York”. Thanks Thea for spending the day with us and showing us your city. Especially in China Town. :) We had a great time and had no issues getting around by subway the rest of our stay.

Wonderful time on the tour!!!

My son and I visited New York for the first time and took this tour on our second day. It was the highlight of our trip and I would highly recommend to anyone wanting to get a good view of the city. We enjoyed every minute of it. Our tour guide, Thea, was great, very informative, fun, and had some wonderful stories to share with us. We walked through many neighborhoods, saw some of the greatest sights that we would definitely have missed had we not had a tour guide, and learned so much history and little “tidbits” about all the areas she showed us. We learned so many helpful hints for the rest of our trip, as well as just little interesting facts about New Yorkers in general. This is very fun. Worth every penny.

First time trip to New York

We were given the 6 hour tour with Thea, former architect who is a fountain of knowledge re: history and architecture. We went to Times Square, Central Park (quick overview), Greenwich Village (lovely!), Washington Square Park, SOHO, Little Italy (very little), Chinatown, Wall Street, Ground Zero, and Fraunces Tavern (where George Washington liked to hang out). In addition to learning the basics of using the subway, we learned how to eat pizza like New Yorkers do (fold in half like a sandwich), and how to cross the streets without fear against the red light (well, with a little caution). If you are looking for an efficient, educational, and entertaining tour, this is it. Ask for Thea!

Amazing Tour

Our group of five (two teens, three adults) spent a wonderful afternoon with Thea on our first day in NYC. What a perfect way to discover this beautiful city! Thea helped us get acclimatized with advice on how to manage the subway and orient ourselves when out walking, while providing interesting stories about the history and development of Manhattan. Her love for, and knowledge of, the city shone through as she helped us navigate streets and sights. We loved her passion and patience (the teens needed to take about a million photographs), her insider’s hints about places to eat, and her ideas for things we could do over the next few days. Thank you Thea for providing us with this superb experience.

Great tour!

I booked the tour because I was coming from Toronto with a small group of clients. We were all impressed by the knowledge of our guide Thea. She was also very friendly. She met us on time and was great.
