I am ashamed it took me this long to write a review because of how truly incredible this experience was for my family and me. Before lockdown, I found Robin via multiple websites and booked a half-day tour by private car for myself, my mother, and gangster loving father. I prefaced the booking explaining that my father had a bad knee and I was a bit nervous about a walking tour. I was hoping he would still get the full experience viewing everything from a car and not just be stuck in New York city traffic all day. Robin customized the entire ride for us, and not only was she an absolute pleasure, she knew the streets so well she would ask the driver to pull up a couple of hundred feet when the sidewalk would be easier to get in and out of the car. It was a fun experience we still talk about and also happened to be the last time my parents will be in the city with me for quite some time. When we got hungry, and my father wanted to sit down for a meal (an unexpected request when we had a full picnic in the car), Robin, of course, knew the perfect place and was able to incorporate everything into part of the experience. She was incredibly knowledgeable and my father LOVED it.

My husband is really into anything Mafia related and watches so many documentaries I worried the tour wouldn't be great for him, couldn't have been more wrong. He learned even more (as did I) and got to see some great places to feel like it brought all the information to life.
Robin was a great tour guide and tailored it to our interests, Ben was also a great driver.
It was a little pricey but we are glad we did the private vehicle tour over a group walking tour (not least because it was pouring down)
we loved the Italian bakery she took us for for Canolli and we got to meet John the owner who had good stories of his own

I took this tour in preparation for a book on the history of the Mafia that I plan to co-author with my writing partner, who joined me on the tour. I can honestly say that I didn't expect to cover so much ground or gather so much information. Robin's knowledge spans not only the history of the Five Families but also the Jewish Mob in New York, the Chicago Outfit, the Purple Gang of Detroit, and other ancillary organized crime groups. We were amazed to see the bullet hole still visible in the lobby of the Majestic apartment building from Vincent Gigante's attempted assassination of Frank Costello. From this location on 72nd street we made our way down to the Lower East Side and Little Italy, where we saw Lucky Luciano's childhood home and John Gotti's Ravenite Social Club, and we managed to hit every major Mob-related point of interest in between. I also got a box of the best cannoli I've ever tasted, though I'm not sure if this is a standard part of the tour! I saw parts of Manhattan I never knew existed, and learned fascinating secret histories of some streets and neighborhoods I've passed through hundreds of times before. Our driver, Arkady, was somehow able to park us directly in front of many important landmarks for photo opportunities and a few quick tours. Between his professional luxury vehicle service and Robin's vast knowledge, this is the best Mafia tour of New York that I could ever imagine taking. For me it's an easy 5/5!

Thank you so much for the great review. I really enjoyed showing you and Bill around the haunts of the mob in NYC. Can't wait for the book to come out and read it.

Had a great time on the private tour. Driver and tour guide were very friendly, informative, and engaging. Had time to hit quite a few spots and get a full range of the history of the mob in NYC.

Robin was very friendly and extremely informative. I found the tour quite interesting and learned some thing I didnt know, she also gave recommendations to books, movies, and other tours, the driver Akadia was also quite nice. Robin assured that all members of the tour were entertained. We will definitely book another tour with her! Also loved the driver!

We highly highly recommend this tour Robin was our guide she was excellent with lots of cool information. We spent 4 hours with her on a private tour in a sprinter. She took us to lots of places where the mob were told us lots of stories. We would definitely consider another tour with her when we return to NYC THANK YOU Robin

Robin's informative and fascinating tour was an excellent kickstart for our first time in NYC. It was like we had two tours in one as Robin showed us around her city, fascinating us with mob related stories as well as pointing out interesting landmarks that you would be hard pressed to find in any guide books or ordinary tour. The six hour tour took us all over the city and to other boroughs that we otherwise would not have had the opportunity to visit. We were shown so many things that we would never have discovered on our own thanks to Robin. When we come back, we would love to try one of her other tours as I am sure they are all equally amazing!

Robin was an excellent guide. Her knowledge of the city, the landmarks and the mafia was second to none. We chose the 4 hour luxury private car tour and it was excellent. We learnt about the mafia, famous movie scenes, real life scenes and places. We also learnt a lot about NYC in general. We walked various streets including in those of Little Italy, China Town; we ate cannolis and had pizza in the same restaurant where they filmed the Sopranos and Donnie Brasco. One of the best parts of the trip was visiting the church where they filmed the christening scene from the Godfather; with the organ playing in the background it felt as through you were in the movie. The only regret we had was not booking the 6 hour tour!
