Max is the most knowledgeable, friendly and enthusiastic tour guide i have ever met. We have taken tours in many cities around the world and he is hands down the best. He knows so much history and fun information that it almost became a game to try to stump him. Food, just ask him. It doesn't matter whar part of the City you want to see. My 14 year old daughter and i spent the day with Max and never got bored. He was generous enough to buy us lunch and smoothies too. Best of all, Max has such love of his job that you leave him with a thirst to live your own life with more passion and joy.

This tour included East Village, Little Italy, and SoHo. Me and my 13 year old son thoroughly enojyed the tour. Our tour guide made it really fun. I was a little concerned initially with the amount of walking we would do, but we stopped plenty of times where it wasn't a problem. We learned a lot about each area. Not boring even one bit. GREAT tour guide. Can't recommend it enough.

We did the Village Sampler tour with Max and the City of Dreams tour with Danielle. Both tours were great - really informative and entertaining. We highly recommend CityRover Walks as an excellent way to enhance a visit to New York. You will learn fascinating facts about the city which you would not get from a guide book. We are looking forward to booking more tours in the future.

My Husband and I went on the City of Dreams Tour with our excellent guide Max. We throughly enjoyed the tour, which was so interesting and so much fun. We learnt so much and the time just flew by. We really enjoyed going into McSorley's for a drink of dark ale. We also enjoyed hearing the stories in Little Italy. We just wished we had booked another tour with CityRover, but unfortunately we didn't have anymore time left in New York. Next time I would book at least one tour at the start of our trip. You come away with lots of ideas and want to go back to explore. An inspirational tour with an enthusiastic fun guy and most definitely our favourite in Manhattan. No trip to New York would be the same without a tour with these guys. Cant wait to go back, Cheers!

We did both the Village Sampler and City of Dreams tour this trip, They were both perfect in every way!

Danielle led the Village Sampler. She's just amazing. Smart, funny, fun and full of knowledge that she can't wait to share with you. Loved Chelsea Market but the highlight for me was the Highline. What a great park and what great stories from Danielle. We had a perfect day and there were plenty of New Yorkers out enjoying the sun. It made me want to go back and enjoy it myself!

The Meat Packing District was really interesting. Amazing history there. Then of course Greenwich Village with the great culture, architecture and food! We made a great stop at Bleeker Street Pizza for a snack. That's another place I'll need to go back to!

The incomparable Max led the City of Dreams tour. You can tell Max loves this city and loves sharing it with his guests. I really had no knowledge of this part of NYC but Max made it come to life. From the Dutch colony days to Yiddish Theatre, the East Village, Little Italy and SOHO are full of great stories.

You just can't go wrong with City Rovers. The guides are just the best. They love what they do and it shows. We'll be booking Central Park and Wall Street next time!
