Jim was top notch. As a retired police officer myself, I can attest to his candor and entertaining manner. It made for an awesome family experience that I highly recommend. You’ll tip well and feel good about it!


Does this tour run if the weather is bad?
Like all of our tours, this one runs rain or shine. If it's raining we advise that you bring an umbrella. New York can also be very cold in the winter so we advise dressing in layers and wearing a warm set of gloves or mittens.
