The tour was great. There was a lot of history and our guide was very enthusiastic! I just wish there was a break halfway through.

In my opinion the best part was the very knowledgeable guide who once was a broker at the stock exchange himself. I really enjoyed hearing about the history of all the buildings in the financial district.

Good tour; plenty of history, from the beginning of NYC to current day. Our guide talked us through the buildings, the history of the markets, the who's who of the area as was and the impact of recent events. Would definitely recommend.

We went on the Wall Street Walk combined with the 9/11 Memorial. The tour guide was fantastic with wall street's history and knowledge of the area. Would recommend this walk to anyone not sure whether to do it or not.

We took this tour with Celia and it was worthwhile. Celia showed us the most important buildings of Lower Manhattan where the NYC's story began, she told us cultural and hostorical information in a professional, clear, simple and not boring way. I really appreciated her approach because that made the tour pleasant and caught our attention. I absolutely recommend this tour because otherwise walking alone trough Wall Street, even with the best guidebook in the hand, you can never understand how NYC passed from being New Amsterdam to the capital of the world. With Celia we also went to 911 Memorial and that gave me the chance to have a connection with a new yorkers and her feeling about those horrible moments.

Travelling with our 16 year old son we all really enjoyed the history of the area. Our guide had lots of interesting information to share and as she had worked in the area she was able to explain how the stock markets work in an easy to understand way.She had also been in the area on Sept 11 so her presentation at Ground Zero was heartfelt and moving.We were very glad we booked this tour!

Having a finance background, I found this tour very interesting because you learned about many of the different sites in New York that have impacted American economy. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and had engaging stories to tell us. I also enjoyed that this tour took you into the 9/11 Memorial. I wish that we had a bit more time in there to reflect and take everything in, but I was glad that we were able to skip the long line since we were with the tour! Keep in mind that this is a rain or shine walking tour, so don't forget your umbrellas!

Excellent! Very informative and engaging. Gave an overview of both the history of wall street and the history of the US.
Gale R.July 3, 2013
The tour was awesome. We both really enjoyed it. Our guide was very informative and we learn some things we did not know. Ours was coupled with a Ground Zero tour. It was nice being able to pass the long line. I would highly recommend this tour.

Absolutely fantastic. The lady guide was just awesome. Hilarious, knowledgeable, caring and just cool. Her knowledge of NYC history is unmatched. I will do it all over again.

My fiance and I maked 6 -8 tours/activities with our NY Pass during our stay in NY at the beginning of Mai. The Wall Street & 911 Memorial Tour was for sure the very best tour of them all - even though we had the worse weather that day - that only shows how competent and interesting our tourguide and the tour was. Thanks a lot . BR T & K

I really recommend this tour, it was full of history, facts and details about wall street. It was so interesenting for a tourist.
Charlene N.April 29, 2013
This tour was much more informative than I had expected. I thought the tour would be only on the financial aspect of Wall Street. I was wrong, the tour guide did an excellent job in taking us through the financial area down to Ground Zero. He gave us a lot of information about the areas. I was very pleased to have headsets so we could hear clearly all of the information. I would definitely recommend this tour, for the price it was a deal.
MumLuvs2Cruise .April 25, 2013
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and had lots of first hand experience about the New York Stock Exchange and Wall Street history. We enjoyed the tour with the exception that there were too many people in the tour and sometimes the radios did not work so we could not hear tour guide. Also, the weather was awful, but that was not the fault of tour. However, it would have been nice if we could have switched our tickets to another day, as this was the only day we were in NYC that was snowing/raining.
Spoodgie .April 21, 2013
Steve our guide was knowledgeable and funny. Not only did we learn about the historical highlights of Wall Street landmarks, the tour included an organised and hassle free visit to the 9/11 memorial site. I'd definitely recommend it.

This tour was fantastic! It was well-paced and we got to see so many wonderful things in the financial district. Not only was our tour guide knowledgeable about the history of the area, but had first hand experience due to being an experienced financial analyst. Ned was fabulous and pointed out so many unique things on this tour. We got to see Wall Street, the Stock Market, the Trinity Church, Bowling Green, and went into the 911 Memorial Site. Definitely worth the extra money and time. Overall, a well planned tour with personal hearing devices.

We were pleased with the tour time being at 3 PM, as this meant we could still have a full day doing other activities, have lunch, then head off to the tour.
A very friendly guide met us and started showing us around Wall Street. The tour was an interesting mix of financial history and American history which are both very intertwined. Having been to Wall Street before I didn't realize how much I had missed in terms of little details. Doing a tour is definitely the best way to truly understand this integral part of America.
The only disappointment was that Anneline did not give more personal encounters, having worked in the Wall Street, This would've been a nice touch.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 90 minute tour with Ned. Very knowledgable and engaging. Probably one of the best walking tours we've done anywhere as it is so full of Information and takes you to parts of the city you'd never normally go to. We got our tickets through the New York pass which is a fantastic option if you are in the city or 2-4 days and are a bit of a culture vulture like us. It finishes by ground zero and we got free passes for the 911 memorial on line.the tour only operates on certain days and booking ahead is highly recommended.

It was a really interesting tour, you get to know a little about the history of the city, and really interesting facts. I Loved it
