    I had David as a guide. He was fantastic. Very knowledgeable. I learned a lot about NY and he had great suggestions. We covered a lot of ground. I am not a particularly fast runner but we were able to go at the speed I was comfortable with.

    Can totally recommend the Crossroads of the World running tour. My son and I did the tour with Angie and Shelly, who were really friendly and showed us some of the bits of NYC we would have missed and told us lots of interesting facts. Run was nice and relaxed, like running with friends. A great way to start the day

    The guide was really nice and kind! The schedule correct, all destinations were wonderful, and we did the running tour in a small rain and a cold day! The team sent me an e-mail previously about the probability to rain, and to be prepared to it, and it was really nice! I hardly recommend!!!
