FORGET THE REST WHEN YOU COULD HAVE THE BEST
Last month, we had the pleasure of taking our grandson for his first trip to New York. While we usually see three (3) Broadway shows in two (2) days, we forwent the Saturday matinée for a personally escorted tour of Manhattan, so that our grandson could experience New York from a native New Yorker’s perspective. While we thoroughly researched the various tour groups available, we were immediately drawn to Cliff Strome because of his innate ability to customize a tour that was specifically geared to children.
Our research proved to be correct since Cliff exceeded our expectations. First, he is as personable of a guide that one could desire. Second, he was a walking encyclopedia of New York City and Brooklyn. Our four-hour tour went by so quickly since we all enjoyed his knowledge and his company.
One of the highlights of the tour was Cliff taking us to the Economy Candy Store in the lower eastside. Regardless of one’s age, you literally will be “a kid in a candy store” at this place. It was not only enjoyable for our grandson, we clearly enjoyed this store since it brought back old memories of the candies that we ate when we were our grandson’s age.
Beside escorting us to the various sights in New York, Cliff had numerous interesting stories about each sight and certain areas that we passed in route to those sights.
If you are truly looking for an entertaining, educational and efficient use of one’s time in New York, Cliff is the person you should hire. Why settle for a Cadillac when you can have the Rolls Royce of tour guides!
