    If your website is intended to showcase “the passionate people of the world,” then I applaud your choosing Justin Ferate. There is no one more dedicated to (or enthusiastic about) his profession as a cicerone. As a relatively-new resident of New York City, I feel incredibly lucky to have stumbled upon him and his vast stores of knowledge about my new hometown. As Tina Turner sings, he’s “simply the best!”

        In 2009, I was introduced to Justin’s website by a fellow theatergoer who also led walking tours throughout the city. Since joining Justin’s mailing list, I have signed up for many of his tours and found him to be remarkable.
