It was a pleasure having you as our tour guide.

I received a lot of positive feedback from the students, and several suggested doing a walking tour next year. Will be in touch to further discuss.

Thanks so much for providing a great tour!

Carol and I had a wonderful time on the tour today.

Great job!

We are looking forward to another.

Would enjoy taking in some more of the Upper West Side.

I will recommend Susan and request her next year. She was very friendly and willing to work with me. She knew the sites very well and was good at giving the kids interesting facts, but not too many. She talked things over with me and we came to solutions together. She interacted with the students and adults well...and asserted herself on our behalf many times. Excellent guide! 

Susan was fantastic! I definitely want her every year! She is wonderful with the kids and also incredibly flexible to my ideas too. Would highly recommend her! 

Susan is amazing! I truly look forward to working with her each year! She helps make our trip an incredible experience!!

Absolutely wonderful!  Fantastic tour guide!

Susan Volchok, a licensed New York City guide...gathered her charges on the sidewalk opposite 92 and 94 MacDougal, noting that the two row houses had been bought and made over into one bigger house by a more solvent Dylan in 1967 and sheltered him and his family until 1973. It was the first of many cultural factoids I and 11 people I'd never met would be treated to over the course of a congenial three-hour stroll on a cool spring day...The party broke up with...a richly deserved cheer for our affable and knowledgeable guide.

Loved the tour, loved the food, loved Susan's hair, LOVE NEW YORK!...I usually have ADD issues with walking groups and ditch out at some point, but this was totally engaging, even for my 16 yr. old daughter with me. Our guide, Susan, was interesting, personal, relevant, and real—her personality, the tour itself, and the food kept our interest, and a special memory was created.
