Awesome tour! Tim was a very entertaining and knowledgeable tour guide. We visited 3 SpeakEasys. The group ranged from ages 20 something to 60 something and all ages had a great time mixing and sharing stories. A fun way to meet new people and spend a Saturday night!

Thank you for the feedback and glad you enjoyed the experience. We will be more cognizant of the walking pace in future. As New Yorkers we learn to walk and talk fast so this is a good reminder for us.

Rori was an awesome guide, full of great info and enthusiasm. The history of Prohibition and the speakeasy venues were great. Drinks are delicious but pricey so budget accordingly. Overall a must tour if you love history and architectureand, well, alcohol.
