I loved the history atWashington Square that I never knew. Also, some good story telling from the 18th century of how people lived. I wish we had more time to learn more. The tour guide was very friendly, personable and knowledgeable.

Terry did an excellent job giving us the tour. He was extremely knowledgeable about all of the history he spoke about. We would recommend this tour to anyone. It would have been nice if Viator would have mentioned more detail on where to meet at. They only gave an address. Take this tour you will be glad you did!!

I loved hearing the stories which bring historical events to life. Seeing the Maxfield Parrish Tiffany Glass artwork that was saved from being hidden away in a private collector’s stash by effective activism was extra special.

Toni was an exceptional guide. We even came up on a medical emergency and stopped to assist. She was very knowledgeable about the revolutionary war.
