Our tour guide David was so knowledgeable and made the experience fantastic! I highly recommend this tour for anyone who wants to explore the comic writing history of NYC and see some of the land marks where movies have been shot or used in. It explores the architecture of east midtown of the city as well. The tour was 2 hours, but not exhausting as there are many stops along the way. I would recommend this for older kids (>8) if you’re thinking of booking for your kids, as there is more of a historical focus. We will book TopDog for their other tours in the future, excellent company!

One of the best experiences of our first trip to NYC. Our tour guide, Luke, was a font of information. He gave us a great glimpse into the history and background of the characters and places that were discussed, so even people without prior knowledge could appreciate their significance. His love for the subject matter was well delivered by his effervescent personality. I thoroughly enjoyed the day. Highly recommended!

This was such a great tour!
I decided to take my 9 year old son on a mother-son trip to NYC and wanted to find something special - a little different and geared toward his own particular interests. I came across this tour as a fluke and, though I generally enjoy the superhero movies he loves, I expected to be counting the minutes until this was over. Well, I underestimated just how interesting, informative, and nostalgic this tour would be for me! We learned about architecture, history, why certain areas are used for filming movies, and the highlight for me… we got to visit the real location used for the Daily Planet in the 1970s Superman movie (my favorite as a kid). I had expected this whole tour to be about modern day superheroes and not much else, but I was so wrong! Our tour guide, Luke, was also fantastic! So good at keeping the adults and kids engaged and extremely knowledgeable on all things superhero. He was just a delight and really made this tour special.
I highly recommend this tour. As for my 9 year old… he says that it has been his favorite thing we have done in NYC and says that he wants to do it again next time we come!

We had a tour scheduled for April 18, 2022. I called about 45 minutes before the tour because we were delayed from another tour and would arrive for the tour right on time. The woman I spoke with said I understand and said it’s not a problem, I will let the tour guide know. Not once did she say I would get a charge of $175 on my credit card. I assumed all was okay when the woman reassured me everything was fine. That evening, I get charged so I call back and a woman with the worst customer service skills answered the phone and said “why wouldn’t we charge you?” I told her the woman I spoke with earlier said it was fine. If I had known I would have been charged, I would have ubered my way to the meeting spot and bypassed the delayed trains.

When I explained this to the woman, she said you should have known you had a cancellation fee. Since the woman from my earlier conversation didn’t say anything and said it was fine, I assumed it was fine. I booked this tour with my New York pass.

Awful customer service, awful tone when speaking to you, and no one I’ve encountered in New York has talked down to me like this woman has. Sometimes things come up and companies, especially tourist companies coming back from the pandemic, needs to have better customer service. Appreciate the business you’re getting and hire better people to be customer facing.

Hello, We decided to reply to your review to inform readers of what actually happened. You are a NY Pass Guest, which means you do not actually pay for the tour but it is included in a separate tour pass. We allow NY Pass guests so sign up but require a credit card to hold the reservation we charge guests if they do not show up for taking up a spot. When you initially called you claimed you would arrive on time which is why you were told it was "ok." You didn't mention being late or not ATTENDING AT ALL, which is what you chose to do. If you had said this, she would not have told you it was ok. Upon reviewing the call, you were in fact the rude one. After the things you said, she should have hung up on you. It is not our responsibility to inform someone of the charge when they say they will still be attending. In fact, even if they say they won't be attending it's still not our responsibility as you checked a box agreeing to the policy MULTIPLE times, received a confirmation email with the policy (which we have proof you opened), and could have easily found it numerous places on our website. In the future, we suggest being on time to things you book, or at least being honest about your intentions with the people you speak to.

Sadly, we are not able to give this tour the credit is might deserve. The Superheroes tour was excellent, but when trying to cancel a further walking tour within the cancellation period, the Top Dog refused to accept our cancellation and despite trying to resolve the dispute, we were still charged for two tickets at a price of £50+. Ahead of the tour time we attempted to email, then call (without success), then emailed again all within the 48 hours cancellation period. Patrick at Top Dog had clearly not looked at his emails and sent us a reminder the day before which promopted us to email again. We forwarded all the previously sent emails, but due to the time stamp on some of the emails being 5 hours ahead (UK time v US time), he claimed we had not advised him in time. The difference in time stamp was not difficult to establish from the email, but he chose to charge us anyway. This poor and unfair service has soured what was otherwise a good experience. Be careful when booking and be even more careful if cancelling. We are currently disputing the charge with Mastercard and processing a refund claim against Top Dog. Being a small business is no excuse for poor service!

This review is terribly misleading. As a New York Pass guest, upon booking you agree to show up and have your pass scanned or you will be charged. We allow guests to cancel 2 days before if we are contacted by phone. You claim here you called us, but we have an email from you saying you couldn’t call because of your foreign phone. To that we said most guests have a concierge call or use their hotel phone. Also, time stamps on emails don’t stay the same when you leave there country, they show the time of where you are. However, as we require a phone call to cancel, the timing of your email is a moot point. The tour you booked was full, and by reserving and not showing up we lose money. We have this policy for this exact situation. When guests have extreme circumstances we are more than happy to accommodate, but in your own words, you were “just too tired.” We are a small business, and have this rule so we are not taken advantage of by guests who do not show up such as yourself. We suggest that in future travels you don’t sign up for such a lengthy itinerary and this won’t be an issue as most companies have a similar if not more strict cancellation policy.

The Superheroes of New York tour was incredibly worth it. Luke was very energetic and knowledgeable about the stuff that he talked about. He showed us many filming locations for popular movies and TV shows and included a good amount of comics knowledge in the stops as well. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone that is a comics/superhero fan or any family looking for a fun and unique tour. You will be walking/standing outside for at least 2 hours so just be aware of that.

We really enjoyed the Superhero walking tour. Luke was a joy to walk around New York City with and his passion for Comics and history in New York kept us entertained and interested all the way through.
We told him we were craving a Chinese for dinner and he recommended Ollie’s which was also exactly what we were looking for.
Thanks Luke!
If you are looking for information and the history of comics and superheroes in New York then this is definitely the tour for you.

Ok so this was a last minute booking for us. Literally booked an hour before hand through our NY Pass. You have to put your credit card in just in case you don’t turn up which is fair. We meet Luke just across the road from the UN building and he had our booking on his phone and he scanned our NY pass so no charge on Credit card. He started promptly at 3.30pm. He is a very funny and knowledgeable guide and we really enjoyed these two hours seeing some locations and hearing all about the movies, comics and series on our favourite superheroes. Would highly recommend for both those mad marvel and DC fans and those not so much but enjoy the films. Luke is passionate about the subject which helps a lot. Remember a tip! Don’t be like us and not have any cash on you but it was a last minute booking for us.

We had an amazing experience on our tour. Luke was so fun and knowledgeable about movies, comics and of course New York. This tour was a birthday gift for our Superhero-loving 13 year old and Luke chatted and engaged with him as walked between stops, asked him questions while presenting, and overall just made it a perfect gift. The tour has equal parts movies and comic book references so keep that in mind when booking. This is not just for movie lovers! We ended the tour at JHU comic book shop and then grabbed pizza two doors down to finish the evening. Thank you Luke and Top Dog Tours for a great birthday.

This tour was so great! Patrick was our tour guide and was very knowledgeable. We had two 11 year old superhero fans with us and he was very engaging. I left this tour wanting to rewatch all of the superhero classics. I highly recommend this on your next trip to the city.
