Throughout the trip, you’ll hear plenty of fascinating stories and insights into comic book history from your guide, including details about how Kryptonite was created, where Batman was saved from cancellation, and the location of keepsake left behind for NYC by The Avengers.

Our guide Luke was fantastic. So many interesting facts all delivered with good humour. He really brought the city to life with his knowledge and kept us all enthralled. Our whole family (four of us including two kids 15 & 12) loved it.

Good tour! Matthew was very knowledgeable. Loved that it ended at a cool comic book store. Not too much walking but it is 2 hours, so be mindful if you can’t stand for that long. Also, dress for the elements

Great way to see the city through a 12 year olds eyes- enough walking to be adventurous without feeling like we ran a 5K - very thoughtful commentary and “Easter eggs” provided by our hostess. Great job!

The tour was fine, quite a large group and perhaps not as many sights as we thought / hoped might be included. The guide RJ was fine, some good stories.

What a great way to see NYC through the eyes of our enthusiastic teen. Our guide Patrick knows his stuff inside out, answered all questions expertly and was so much fun to just hang with. I love to get the stories behind the stories and that was a great family friendly way to do it. I highly recommend.

Hannah was very fun and energetic! She was well prepared with a notebook full of images to parallel the places that she was showing us. She answered all questions that my son had, with enthusiasm and an obvious knowledge and love for the topic. Thank you Hannah for giving us a very memorable tour.

Langweilig

, Oct. 2019
Die Tour war sehr langweilig und langatmig. Wir haben die Tour nach einer Stunde verlassen. Wir haben bis dahin 3 Häuser von aussen betrachtet. War weder spannend noch haben wir irgendetwas mit Superhelden gesehen. Der Tourführer hatte uns Comicbilder aus einem Buch gezeigt. Sehr Fragwürdig, und nicht empfehlenswert.
