Great Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, Value December 2020

We did a virtual tour for our company holiday party and it was fantastic. Justin is an excellent guide, informative and entertaining! What an education about our office neighborhood that we miss while on COVID lockdown. So great to dive deep into the history and architecture. I would love to do this again in real life when we can and I highly recommend the virtual tour while we can't do it live!

Virtual Tour September 2020

Justin is a fountain of information about the city he so obviously loves. I appreciated his attention to the historical, architectural, sociological and economic aspects of The Flatiron District of Manhattan. Highly recommended!

Fun Virtual Tour August 2020

Justin gave a great tour of the Flatiron distrcit, a virtual tour. He is a wealth of information about the area, buildings, history and events/people related to the area. Well done. I especially loved the old photos of what the neighborhood looked like throughout its history.
