My boyfriend and I came to NYC for the first time and for his birthday. He is an investor and fascinated by history and markets, so I surprised him with this tour. The meet up directions were very clear, easy, and the meet up location was exactly as described. We both loved the length of it and delivery of information. Jared was fantastic! He actually has first-hand experience working on Wall Street and in financial markets, so he was very well-informed and had a very rich understanding of the history of NY and markets. He was so kind and fun and kept us engaged. I liked how we got to participate and engage in the conversation versus just listening to a monologue. The information was also informative, but not too heavy or dense—it was just right. Only suggestion I would have would be to add a bathroom opportunity along the way. And do dress warmly if you go in the winter. It’s mostly outside and it gets windy and cold downtown. Otherwise it was great all the way around and we highly recommend it! We are going to look in to other tours with Jared!

This tour was excellent and very well informed. Jarred is a great tour guide. His has an effervescent personality, but this does not distract from the information and knowledge he imparts. I highly recommend him for any tours he conducts.

We toured several areas of the financial district. Tom was a very knowledgeable tour guide who made the history real, accessible and fun. Some of the information my son was learning in his American History class in High School and the tour really brought the story to life!

We had a very good tour highlighting this area of the city. Our guide was very knowledgeable and informative. We only had one other couple with us so it was almost a private tour. If you are interested in the financial goings on of Wall Street this is a great tour. My husband probably got more out of it than me, as he is a finance guy.

This became a private tour because of COVID and no one else signing up! We're glad we were able to experience this tour with Jared. He had lots of knowledge and was happy to answer any questions we had. He made the tour fun with fun facts about the financial crisis, Wall Street, and our surrounding areas. My partner is a finance guy so he loved the tour, it was his favorite part of our NYC visit! Appreciate Jared's dedication and enthusiasm. You don't walk much on the tour at all, but stand the whole time.

This was the most fascinating tour I had in New York. Our guide Jared was extremely knowledgeable, there was not a second in the whole 2 hour tour that I was bored. Wear sneakers and bring a foldable seat of sort if you are over 60. Guide was also mindful of the bathroom break which was nice. Tour Details: We started at 15 Broad Street, then Jared talked about NY Stock Exchange across the street, took us to the intersection of Broad St and Wall St to give us details about Trinity Church and Wall Street. He brought us inside Federal Hall to the downstairs vault to talk about financial crisis which was amazing. Deutche Bank was the last point of the tour.

A great way to get to know Wall Street and the US financial business. It’s probably second to the Wolf of Wall Street, hahahaha. I’ve read a lot about Financial District and the events that took place here, but it was a completely different experience to visit them in person. And the guide was very well informed, so I learned a lot of new, and curious facts. Some of the people complained later about way too much historical facts, but those place is full of history. It’s not like Leo DiCaprio snorting. It was pretty cool to visit the NY Stock exchange, the Federal Reserve Bank and I got some cool pictures of the Charging bull. And it was a pretty cool tour of a cool place. In short – if you’re working in the financial business and you’re interested in history and walks – that’s your tour.

Tour was conducted by James and he was very knowledgeable about Wall Street as he worked there for many years. Very energetic as well, it was pleasure to listen to him. He gave us many fun facts about Wall street. However, (to my liking) I thought there were way too many historical information about the different locations we've been through, even if what happened in the past helps better understand the present, the financial crisis information for instance were not enough present compare to the historical facts.

James was very informative of the history of New York City, The Stock Exchange, and even had his own personal experiences to bring the facts of history to light. We stopped in front of the raging bull which was fun. James was very thoughtful and had us stop inside certain buildings during the walking tour to have us warm up a bit!
