The guided walking tour was very informative and reflective of it 's place in history. It was only difficult during period of extreme cold weather and maneuvering the crowded streets (holiday weekend) The guide appeared very knowledgeable, and allowed for questions.

"Fascinating Underground Railroad Tour"

I loved how knowledgeable my tour guide Shawn was. He dropped tidbits while we walked from site to site, and gave really detailed information when we got to a site. It's hard to say what my favorite part was, because I was kind of disappointed when it was over. I would love to try other Inside Out tours when I'm in NYC again. Definitely worth my time!
