A Note of Praise Forwarded by another NYC Tour Operator for a Manhattan Architectural Tour

"We just got some fantastic feedback about you and I thought you’d like to see; check it out!

'walking tour- Jared was awesome... so knowledgeable and flexible to adjust the tour to our needs... he called me on arrival to suggest some changes and also tell us that he would prefer to do the tour all on foot... since there was an inner city bike race that day and had the entire center core of the city shut off so the bus would not be able to get in... so we did the whole tour on foot and it was fantastic... best walking tour I have ever had in New York he even managed to get us into several buildings to talk about the interiors as well. I would request him again if we ever take a group back again'"

This ended up as a New York City Midtown Manhattan architectural tour for a college trip for Professors and students.  NYC traffic conditions are dynamic, but I have resources to avoid some parades, protests, and festivals that can get us stuck in traffic. 
I am glad the group was flexible about doing a walking tour in five nearby neighborhoods instead of sitting in a coach bus in traffic for hours.  The original plan was to go to several neighborhoods, several miles away.

A note of praise forwarded by a Tour Operator for a New York City Tour for a School Group

The following are some kind words from the [school's] group leader.

"The walking tour was brilliant, Jared was really friendly, a true New Yorker – loads to say! The kids loved him, and took lots of photos – he pitched the talk at the right level and made it personal – he took the time to ask the teachers about the kids before he talked with them, he was interested to know what they were like. He was impressed by the level of questions from the students – one child was really interested in Judaism and the cultural areas in New York which he was happy to talk about on to focus on with this student. ... – a big thank you to Jared!"

Note: The Jewish New York heritage content in my tour was in between tour spots, walking and talking to address this student's particular interest.  I love keen interests, but I try to stay general for the whole group's part of the NYC walking tour.
