“A Masters Degree in understanding what happened”
Reviewed 29 February 2012

This is a must experience in New York. I have been to NY several times and this time was different. I had the luck of having heard about this tour and finally found it in the internet. Our guide Sandy was very well prepared, he knows what he speaks, was very kind and would highly recommend him. Could not be better. He gave us a mini Masters Degree in understanding what took us to the present crisis. De-regulations, etc etc. All well prepared and documented. Even my wife who is not fond at all of this subject, preferred this than normal "newyork" tourist attractions or shopping - and loved to listen Sandy's explanations for more than 2 hours. And, having this lesson in the middle of Wall Street was an unforgettable experience. Highly recommend!

“A fun and easy tour with lots of information and a great guide!”
Reviewed 29 February 2012

We took my 3 kids (ages 10, 13, and 15) and their grandparents (age 69) on this great tour of Wall Street. Our guide Sandy was very informative and made sure our tour experience was a good one. He was responsive and knowledgeable to all of our questions.

The tour was an easy walk for everyone in our group. We didn't actually go into any of the buildings (it was a Sunday) but it was fun to hear about the stories and history behind this area.

I would definitely recommend this tour as a nice way to spend an afternoon in the city. The tour only takes and hour and fifteen minutes. We also had time to enjoy some great NY pizza and explore other places on our own.

“Truly enjoyed the tour, but was mislead by the title of my tour”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

The tour was amazingly educational with the history of wall street. James, our tour guide was not only able to educate us, as well answer all my questions, but made the tour extremely fun and entertaining. However, I was a little disappointed with the tour I chosen, which was "The Financial Crisis tour". I was hoping to be educated with a little more insight of the whole financial crisis. The tour, to me, felt more of a history lesson with brief summaries of what happened rather than on the subject of the financial crisis.

Thank you for joining us on this tour. The audience on our public tours represent a broad spectrum of people across all levels of financial background. We try to make our tours accessible to this broad audience. Also a Wall Street tour would not be complete without telling the stories of this historic area. We try to strike a meaningful balance. We always encourage questions on our tours to address specific topics for our guests.
