He spoke in a clear voice, in an informative manner, never missing the opportunity to entertain. Zev has an in-depth knowledge of New York.

We did a downtown tour with Kyle and the tour was one of the best till date for us. The approach adopted by him in explaining the historical significance of the areas/ building kept us always engaged.

Excellent tour. The guide (Kyle Kesses) was very approachable and knowledgeable. Learnt about the history of new Amsterdam/New York and the immigrants who make the city! Well worth the time and also learnt about a great lunch spot (Essen on 100 broad Street). Thanks Kyle!

At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
