The tour guide was very friendly and involving in process! He really like what he do and was trying to show us everything! На экскурсии нам рассказали как работает сток маркет, показали разные постройки разных лет и даже напоили кофе, потому что было холодно! Если вы хотите разобраться в том как устроены бирже и банки в сша - это отличный вариант!

One of the best Guides ever! What a fantastic experience it is to meet Wall Street with Andrew! You will understand how the stock market works, and even if you are a layman! Andrew is very charismatic, and is really a different guide – explaining key details, patient, illustrative (he has a wonderful picture album) and even making us very curious! Honestly, it will be one of the best tours you can take in New York; Getting to know Wall Street with him is really immersing yourself in history and understanding the facts! Plus a lot of fun!

I had the pleasure of doing this experience with Richard and it was just that: a pleasure! Richard knew TONS of fascinating facts about the financial district from the history, the latest news headlines, the secrets, everything. I had an awesome time and would recommend this to anyone! Even if the subject doesn’t grab your attention necessarily, he does such a great job of positioning the information to make it applicable and insightful. This experience could really be for anyone as the walking is not arduous whatsoever. I recommend it to everyone I know going to New York!
