Superhero Tour of New York

Superhero Tour of New York

Product Review (submitted on November 30, 2012):
My two sons and I loved this tour. The guide was so informative and he knew a great deal not only about the main subject of the tour but also the history of New York. On the tour you visit a number of famous landmarks where super hero films have been shot and a few lesser known parts of the city that are connected to super heroes either because a writer or actor have lived/worked there. Buildings that you see or go into on this tour include Grand Central Station, New York City Library, The Chrysler Building and the Flat Iron Building.

if you take this tour you will find out what Batman owes to a game of cards, why Kryptonite was invented to weaken Superman as well as the history of the comic book and the companies that produce them. The tour ends in fantastic bar between 2nd & 3rd Avenues where artists used to meet and they have left fantastic examples of their work on the walls.

The only down side of the tour was that my 12 year old son found the walking a bit much, but on the whole this is certainly a tour that is worth doing.
