Highly recommend!!! Best experience in the nature. I was the only one who took the tour but he was still so passionate. He is super knowledgeable, knows every detail of all birds, and spot the birds with magic eyes and ears. I was so lucky to have him as a private guide. I’ve been to Central park tons of times but didn’t know there are more than hundred species of birds at all. I saw and learned about more than 20 species today. Grey catbird, blue jay, Downy woodpecker, and so on. You should definitely join this tour. The way you view the park will totally change!

Alex’s tour of the lower east side was both fun and informative. The range of history covered was expansive, from colonial time, immigration of the 19th and 20th century, 80s music to present day, and his presentation was very vivid and engaging. We were able to visit interiors of several historical landmarks, Highly recommended!
