    Superhero Location Walk
    It was so much fun to see the locations from so many superhero movies, and even more enjoyable to get the story behind the story! Our guide, Luke, was very entertaining, and kept the tour on track despite a few members dropping off along the way. The actual walking parts were very easy, even for an older and out of shape person (such as myself!), and the only thing I would have changed was the weather, which went from sunny and pleasant to breezy and cloudy. And since nothing could be done about the weather, we just stuck it out, and had a great time! 5 stars to Luke and to Top Dog Tours!

    Personal tour with good atmosphere
    We took the 2 hour walking tour, through Greenwich with a small group. It was a nice and personal tour. I liked the stories Katie told and the interactive part where you got to know where the others in the group came from. The walk was casual and with a good atmosphere and a little chat.

    Great Experience!
    My boyfriend and I took this tour in April 2024. Our tour guide, Percy, had much to share on the history of comic books in New York City. We learned so much about the creators of our favorite superheroes, and we even got to see some older Marvel/DC filming locations. It was a wonderful time!

    Awesome organized tour made life easy for me
    I took my uncle and aunt to NYC as they had never been. Last time I was at the statue of liberty and ellis island I was like 8years old on a field trip. I wanted to show my family around as well as learn about history and get a lot out of a tour. We had an amazing time with Percy Smart she was the best.. I think the organization of the tour, the flexibility, and the positive upbeat attitude of our lovely tour guide made the day unforgettable. I loved how the tour had all our tickets ready and the day went super smooth. I had so much fun also!!! .Percy was a walking book of historical knowledge with great energy and vibe. I would recommend Percy without hesitation. Also when i called the tour company Perry was super sweet, and explained the meeting place for me as I was nervous as I had only booked the tour a day or two prior last minute It really was the perfect trip, well worth the money as in guided tours you learn so much without walking around aimlessly. I really encourage a private tour. It makes the day so you are not wasting time and you see a lot more in one day than you would have otherwise. Tickets are already bought so every location planned to be seen was easy

    Superhero walking Tour Review
    We went on the Marvel walking tour with my 12 and 14 year old. The tour was a lot of fun for anyone generally interested in super heroes and comic strips. Claire was a friendly and knowledgeable guide and showed us various locations that had been in superhero films or TV shows, whilst giving the lowdown on several superhero’s, comic book writers, locations etc. Really enjoyed it and would recommend

    An evening to remember
    Highly recommended! Our guide Luke entertained us with full two hours of interesting stories. We heard a lot about not only ghosts but also New York history and all the interesting landmarks of Greenwich. This is such a fantastic way to explore the city!

    Great tour with local guide
    Claire was a great guide. She showed us a lot of interesting spots, as well as many funny and informative stories. She pointed out a few cool spots to grab food and drinks after the tour which was nice. Overall, a great experience.

Well, where to start! We let the company know 24hrs before the tour that one member of the party was sick so asked to rearrange. They did not meet back to us so I called and they said they could change it to the Sunday instead of the Wednesday.

Then they sent a message asking for $100 to do this (the tour already cost us $124).

They would not budge and were completely inflexible and I WOULD MOT RECOMMEND THEM.

If they reply to this with some alternative to the above it wouldn’t surprise me. Generally I write on here about good decent companies and rarely about bad ones but people should know about this.

Hello, We have a 2 day rescheduling policy which is actually quite generous as a lot of tour companies do not allow cancelling or rescheduling at all. You had a group of 5, which is literally 20% of the capacity of this tour. By reserving and then changing last minute you prevented other guests from making reservations and causing us to lose money. This is why we have this policy. It's not money grabbing..it's business. We understand that things happen on vacation but if we made an exception for every case we'd lose a lot of money..which is the point of a business...to make money. This most ironic part about your review is our customer service rep actually rescheduled you without charging you. So this review is a moot point. However in light of your review we will be reaching out to you regarding the situation.

Our tour guide, Laura was great. I worried I wouldn’t be able to hear everything since our group was 12-15 people but she was great at talking loud enough for everyone to hear. She acted genuinely interested in where everyone was from and told the history of our stops well.

This was a good ghost tour that was less about ghosts and more about the history of the area. It was not scary, but it is not advertised as a scary tour. Our tour guide did a great job delivering the information but I wish she either had a microphone or projected her voice a bit farther. She had a soft voice and it was challenging to hear her at times.

Hello, Thank you for your feedback. We just wanted to clarify this information for people reading. With the exception of a few stops (which discuss murder, violence, and general macabre themes) every stop discusses ghosts. We believe without the background information on who these people were or the events in which they perished, the ghost story means nothing. No one wants a ghost story without knowing who the ghost is. We also do not have our guides use amplifiers as no one wants a ghost story screamed at them through a microphone. In the future if you take a tour and you can't hear the guide, we suggest just letting them know. Most guides are more than happy to speak a little louder if asked. Safe Travels!

Alyssa was our guide on the ghost tour around Greenwich village. We were a very small group on new years eve. It was a fascinating look into this area of New York. Alyssa was a great guide and we would thoroughly recommend this for the history and the spooky goings on around Greenwich village.

Arrived at Waverly Diner to be greeted by an enthusiastic Luke (even though it was his second tour of the day).

Despite the freezing temperatures, there were 7 of us who braved the cold and were treated to an amazing tour by Luke.

His knowledge and story-telling kept us all intrigued and entertained throughout the night.

I will be recommending this tour to anyone who asks “what to do in NYC?”

We did the Greenwich Village Ghost Tour with Cecilia last Friday and it was awesome! The tour had a large group and initially, we were a little apprehensive but Cecilia was excellent in her delivery and management of the group! She made sure everyone was engaged, had a good mixture of ghost stories, history and culture, and we really had such a fantastic time! We really highly recommend this tour for anyone looking for something fun and a bit different. Thank you :)

We took this tour as part of our New York Pass (me 21, brother 23, mom 56) and had an amazing time with our guide Luke! We enjoyed the walk and views a lot, and his storytelling made us laugh but also (me) genuinely a bit scared. Would definetly recommend, even if you're not a massive fan of ghost stuff like us. You will hear a lot of interesting stories and learn some history too :)

Our guide Marshal (sp?) did a good job. We were in a rather large group but we could still hear well with her microphone. My son said he would have preferred a bit less history and a bit more spooky stuff but I think she did a good job with the area we were in. The main thing is there is a lot of walking, a lot of standing, and virtually no opportunity to sit. If you're over the hill and have already spent the day touring the city, you may find it exhausting- as did we. Our 24 year old night owl son had no such troubles.

Booked this tour as one of the activities during my visit to NYC and honestly it was better than I expected. Our tour guide Marshall was the sweetest and she was so energetic despite the cold weather and the late hour. She was very informative and always willing to answer our questions, whether they were about the Ghosts or just general NYC facts. She talked for the full 2 hours and did not run out of fun facts/stories to tell us. She was also so helpful in assisting everyone in our tour group find their respective ways back home by routing us to the nearest subway stations. If you're every in the city and want to do something new, I would definitely recommend this tour!

Our ghost tour with Top Dog was delightful! Our guide, Luke, was entertaining, full of historically accurate spooky stories, as well as great NYC recommendations. We had a wonderful time! (Nothing was too gruesome, for those who might be worried about that.) Luke and his trainee were good at keeping us all together, avoiding potential tripping hazards, and leading us safely through traffic. Highly recommended!
