What They'Re Saying about Have You Met Newark...
If you want to truly appreciate Newark and its history and its ongoing transformation, in a dense and compact morning, I'd absolutely recommend Emily's tours over anything else you can do. She is energetic, fun, knowledgeable, patient, and above all, has the spirit of a true Newarker. Whether you’ve been here for a life time, working in town, taking classes here, or just passing through, you won’t regret the experience!

Many thanks Emily for a great tour. Your passion and love for Newark is inspiring. Thank you for helping me overcome all the negative perceptions I have of Newark. I'd love to come back. Thank you for taking us to all the great places for coffee and great eats. It is nice to escape the chain store Starbucks. Please let us know of your next tour. I'd love to come back.

I had a very enjoyable & enlightening 'Have You Met Newark' experience. I'll admit the diehard New Yorker in me started with a somewhat negative view of Newark at the beginning but I'm so glad I got the chance to take this tour & have my eyes opened. Newark has a rich history & it's nice to see that even with the spate of new developments in the downtown area, it's managed to retain its character & charm. This certainly isn't something that many parts of NYC can claim! Emily was the perfect intrepid tour guide, & her love & enthusiasm for Newark was infectious. She brought us to see most of the major landmarks in the downtown area, which are within a short walking distance apart. I grew fonder of this city with each passing minute & it was such a great way to spend a few hours. My friend & I are already hoping to take another trip out here soon! It's a quick 40 minute trip on the PATH from NYC, which makes it all the more convenient & tempting.
