The other week I had the opportunity to join Michael on his tour of the Counter-Culture of New York. The history he shows you, the behind the scenes and the back-stories, is unending. Michael is a true local, with a deep connection to Occupy Wall Street. It's great to walk around with him and get his point of view of the current state of the union, with a firm grasp of our nation's roots, told and untold. This is a great tour for anyone interested in politics and history, especially the underbelly of it all, in NYC.
Emily does a great tour of the street food around Playa del Carmen. She's knowledgeable, friendly, and a professional chef. She brought us to some great spots, explained the dishes, went to some market, and talked the Yucatan food ways. Definitely needed for touring QROO.
Michael took us on a tour through the Upper East Side. Even though I live in Queens and work in Manhattan, I neeeever go to the UES. It was cool to see all the historic buildings and houses, see where the richest of the rich bought houses for their children's wedding present (which they never even lived in). Michael lives in the neighborhood, so having a local is great for guideship.
This tour was a dream come true for me. Underground cultures always intrigue me, and this is literally as far underground as NYC gets. Heidi is a member of this culture and has been doing it for around a decade. She is super nice and a great guide. I even made some busker friends. Dream come true.
This was a great tour, just what I needed. DC is great for all the museums and monuments, but at night time, the activities aren't as apparent. Peter took me to some of the places where the locals go and showed me the sections where to get great, real food. I wish there was a tour like this in every city I went to. Thanks !
Linda is awesome. She has worked in the area in the courts for a while and took an interest, so now she is showing it off. My favorite part was going into the courtroom and watching the cases - Linda dissected to me what was going on. I have always wanted to go there, so glad it was on the tour. Thanks!
