About
The best that New York has to offer - amazing history, dizzying landmarks and sounds of jazz! Join me for a walk along Fifth Ave - the name associated with wealth, glitz, and glamor. Fifth Ave is one of the best-known streets in the world, especially the stretch known as Millionaire Row. Once upon a time, it was lined with the finest homes of New York's wealthiest people - a place of ambition, intrigue, scandal, and the most spectacular balls ever given. This tour is not just about the landmarks, it's about the history of New York during the Gilded Age and about the people like the Vanderbilts, the Astors, the Rockefellers, who shaped it into the metropolis. It's about millionaires and architects, visionaries and beautiful models, artists and writers whose names are forever connected to the 5th Avenue. The tour will end at a place where the sounds of jazz rule the night ( food and drinks are available and highly advisable!)

I think it was the best tour of my life
First of all, it is worth saying that in my 26 years I was on many excursions and thought that it would be something standard, as before, but it was quite an unusual and unexpected experience. this case changed my idea of how they might fit. I think it was the best tour of my life! It all starts with a walk around the city, Iren asked me about what is interesting specifically to me and adjusted the entire program for me. It ends with getting into an incredibly unusual and friendly atmosphere of a secret bar with jazz and good alcohol. I didn't even think that jazz nowadays can sound and look so interesting. And I strongly advise you to stay on the show until the end. it is rich and combines different styles. Iren feels like a friend and not a guide, which is very good. You can have an interesting time even if you are not particularly talkative. She also advised me a lot of interesting places that I would definitely not have visited if not for her. Her knowledge of the city is amazing, so she will have great ideas. thanks to her advice, visiting this tour, you will make many days of your trip to new York unusual and fill with richness, not just one.This is definitely my best experience in new York and I strongly recommend that you visit this.

The NYC history came to life
Nov 2019
It was an exiting tour, it felt like transferring in time while walking from Plaza down 5th Ave. Iren were able to make the tour interesting and, surprisingly, educational. The burlesque show at the end was a very pleasant surprise. The time was well spent, great value and substance, recommend for anyone who is visiting NYC or a local, to re-discover hidden treasures next to them.

From Plaza hotel through history of time...
Oct 2019
Excellent tour, in depth knowledge of the subject with a very exiting surprise ending! Iren knows her stuff and knows how to present. Midtown can be such a tourist trap, however this tour opened my eyes on to the world I never knew existed. This was well worth the time and money. I will look Iren up again the next time we are in New York.
