“I link your ordinary experience – what you see, hear and feel – with the history of New York, the nation and the world.”

Peter Laskowich: Historian, Lecturer and Guide

Information imparted with wit and eloquence always seems to sink in better and longer, and so I will forever remember your tour of the Grand Central neighborhood.

E.G. - Chelsea, NY

Your commentary was of the highest quality, and well-delivered,

C,L. - Birmingham, England

Peter was a great guide. His knowledge of course was expected but his anecdotal info was very appropriate. He also seemed very prepared and his tour was like a performance that added to the feeling he wanted to deliver. My wife cried. A.K. - Honolulu, HA

Your tours were the highlight of my trip to New York City. 

L.L. - Atlanta, GA

I’ve never learned so much in 90 minutes, or enjoyed learning so much.

T.K. - Conway, SC

Thank you for the wonderful baseball tour. Your facts about the game and the growth of this city were delightful. In fact, some members commented to me afterwards how they found your talk so much more stimulating than the game at Yankee Stadium. R.J. - American Museum of Natural History, NY

I was immediately sucked into the tour by Peter’s compelling storytelling and dry sense of humor. He comes off as simultaneously sardonic and joyful while imparting knowledge about his beloved city.

Between stops he quizzed us on earlier bits of information, then good-naturedly gave us a hard time when we got things wrong. I may have failed my first quiz but I do know a tour guide’s favorite question – yes, he accepts tips. And he absolutely earns them! 

K.A. - Bowling Green, Ohio

I loved the hell out of your tours. 

D.H. - Tucson, AZ

Your tour was of superb quality. You have a wonderful gift and are as much a treasure as anything we have seen or heard in Manhattan. 

F.M. - LaCoste, France

You had the crowd in the palm of your hand!

L.H. - Manhattan

I have just attended your utterly entertaining tour around Grand Central. It was the best version of the American way of combining information with entertainment. 

S.L. - Berlin, Germany

I have read many books on baseball history and your information seems much more comprehensive. Your tutelage was the most informative and enjoyable that I have had the pleasure of hearing in a long time. I particularly enjoyed the way you contextualized and interwove the history of New York City and that of baseball.

L.K. - Great Neck, NY

The best part of our trip to New York was your lecture on its history.

M.P. - Clarkston, MI

Five stars for Peter Laskowich’s thought-provoking and uplifting tour of Midtown Manhattan. Unashamedly enthusiastic. 

W.G. - London, England

What a remarkable tour guide! There is a depth of information presented in a manner that is equivalent to an off-Broadway show – no, even better…. We are still quoting him, like a song you can’t get out of your mind!

J. and D. - Novato, CA

Your tour is the one event we tell people about from our stay in New York.

T.L. - Canton, OH

The best part of the course was the brilliance and thoroughness of the instructor, Peter Laskowich – outstanding in every way.

A.P. - Wayne, NJ

My major is tourism so I’ve experienced a lot of guiding, and I have to say yours was great. L.C. - Buenos Aires, Argentina

This is the class I have always wanted to take. I learned more about New York in this one class than in all my years of living here.

H.S. - Dobbs Ferry, NY

Your skills and knowledge – and especially your passion – are without equal. 

P.C. - Harlem, NY

You’re a living NYC legend…. tourists (and New Yorkers) deserve to learn about this city through your eyes.

M.S. - Manhattan
