Other things to note
Comfortable shoes, there will be a lot of walking and the tour goes up and down steep hills! Bring a sense of adventure, the more you give to the neighborhood, the more you'll get back.

Highly informative, highly professional, way better than expected tour. My girlfriend and I live in NYC and like taking tours of areas we dont frequent. We did not know much about Staten Island prior to the trip but kept an open mind to seekng what the "forgotten borough" has to offer. Everything about the tour exceeded our expectations. Ben meets us promptly at the Staten Island Ferry Terminal and then goes on to provide a very informative tour including all the historical factoids you'd expect from a walking tour and other tidbits about current events and controversies in Staten Island. If you have never been to Staten Island or have a negative opinion of the borough, definitely take this tour and see what it has to offer. My girlfriend and I ended up staying longer after the tour yo get dinner in Staten Island at a place Ben recommended. It also exceeded our expectations. Thanks for the great tour Ben.

If you are on the fence about this one, trust me when I say it's worth it! Our host, Ben, was super friendly and knew a ton about the area. It felt like walking around with an old friend. Oh, and the views and murals were all so gorgeous. Def left with a new appreciation for Staten Island!

Ben was knowledgeable and gave a great tour of the area of Staten Island. He talked about the recent economic growth in the area and the 9/11 memorial was beautiful and moving. He even added personal stories when appropriate and it added a unique personal touch that I wasn’t expecting! It was an excellent experience!!

Ben, a lifelong Staten Islander, eagerly presents this tour. His passion for where he grew up and his boundless knowledge are truly present in his walking tour presentation. His friendly demeanor makes you feel like you are walking around with a knowledgeable, old friend. I highly recommend this tour to get to know Staten Island and its’ culture better.

Amazing tour. Ben was easy to find at the terminal and was super friendly and knowledgeable. He really knows the area and showed us some interesting spots to eat and a cool comic book shop. Learning about the 9/11 memorial and the first responders was really touching. Overall an excellent experience.
