Ike takes you back to the twenties and thirties when the mob ruled New York. He is an excellent storyteller and very informative. He has a wealth of knowlege and is passionate about the subject. His tour is a must on a visitor's agenda.

It was a 9 hour tour. It was a long day. But it was worth it! The Empire State Building, Ground Zero, Statue of Liberty, Little Italy..... Ike Ilkiw, our tour guide was great. Got everyone involved and was fun. Lots of tidbits of fun trivia especially about Law and Order and shows like that. The bus was clean too.... More

We enjoyed our Hollywood Gangster tour of my former neighborhood Woodhaven Queens today. Ike, being a former police officer, was very informative and gave us all the facts. Always learning something new. Thanks Ike!!

I really enjoy taking the tour and learning all about NYC. Living here my whole life I take it for granted that I know a lot until I take the tour and learn so much that I didn't know.

The depth and breadth of Ike Ilkiw's knowledge of the buildings and prominent figures in lower Manhattan is truly astounding. I took this tour as part of my first trip to NYC, and would happily take it again in another visit.
