Did this tour with the very knowledgeable Gary on Friday 13 December. It rained about 99% of the time, but it didn't dampen our enjoyment, nor Gary's enthusiasm. While one reviewer suggests taking the tour in a pub would suffice, I totally disagree - even in the rain! The

As intriguing as Gary was as a tour guide, we felt like half of the tour could have been done sitting in the restaurant over drinks and him showing us pictures instead of having us walk around and stand in front of a building for 20 minutes while he explained who lived

Dear ScottishMusician1 We are deeply sorry that this was your experience with our company. We try to only hire the most talented, engaging, knowledged and professional of guides, which the mass majority of our reviews can attest to. We take our quality control very seriously, and when we make the error of hiring a less-than-exceptional guide, that guide does not work for us for long. The guide who gave this tour no longer works for NYC Gangster Tours. If you ever want to see how the tour is SUPPOSED to be done, don’t hesitate to contact us, and tickets for you and up to three friends are on us. -Gideon "Da Boss" Levy

DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY! Awful! To start the tour, the guide was 5-10 minutes late. I know more about the Mob than our tour guide did! ( He called Sammy “The Bull” Gravano, Sonny) He kept forgetting what/who he was talking about. Only the last 10-15 minutes was about the Mob of
