The walk tour was okay, it was informative. I find it a bit misleading when it says it's free but you are supposed to pay gratuity of $30. It did not even elaborate if it was per person. We were group of 5, so we asked the guide Omar how much, he said it's US$30/person..we paid $150, so technically the tour was not free

Backdrop to 100s of movies and TV series, you may feel like you know New York before you visit it, but there’s nothing like seeing it in all its glory.
