    We're a family of 4,with two boys under age 10. This tour was great for everyone, even my non-comics living wife. Our tour guide, James, impressed from the start. We were running a little late and he called to make sure we were ok and assure us that we wouldn't miss the start. He then followed that up with a wealth of information about comic sites and history. But he Also delivered it in an entertaining, humorous, and engaging fashion. His knowledge of comic history generally was quite apparent as well as his interest in the genre. The tour went by too quickly, at least for me. We had spent the 3 days before this tour walking all over the city and were concerned about the walking nature of thia tour. But the tour flew by and the walking potion was not strenuous at all. I would recommend this tour to anyone who,has an interest in comics. It feels as though James has a lot more to share with people and can tailor a tour for everyone from a comic neophytes to the most well informed comic collector. If you have any interest in comics or the movies they inspired, take this tour!

    An engaging and detailed tour through New York's superhero shrines, from the original of the Daily Planet to Daredevil's favourite church. Our guide Sam was an excellent host, with a local's encyclopedic knowledge and an ebullient style - acting out how Batman's costume has evolved was a highlight! Fans of the movies will see recognisable locations, but even superhero experts may hear a secret about their favourite character.

    Awesome! We booked the Private Tour since my Kid is a big fan of Marvel DC, and after the Tour I became a big fan too, Sam the lady guide, made of the tour not only a great family time but also so interesting that you want to learn more. A must while in NYC!

    Chet was fantastic! He led us on a most entertaining and educational tour. He was passionate about the superheroes and how they are connected to NYC. Best of all, he kept up a great sense of humor and concern for his group's well being throughout a 2-hour rainstorm. I highly recommend this tour as a great way to personally connect with our nation's treasure of superhero movies.

    Such an interesting tour! Our guide, Patrick, gave us such a detailed insight into the history of comics and their superheroes. He's got so much passion for the topic! I highly recommend this tour even if not a huge fan of superheroes.

    My sister has 3 kids under 12 and I have 3 kids under 12 and thought a fun way to see the NY sites from a superhero view. James did such an incredible job of capturing the attention of all of us, those who were geeked out by superhero trivia and the wives that couldn’t tell the difference between Wonder Woman and captain marvel. We loved the time outside walking and talking and learning. Would totally recommend this tour to anyone who loves the superhero life and the moms and wives who want to please the crowd.
