    to bother a person by asking many questions of him on the street

    Hello friends,

    Suppose that I am a tourist and I go to New York. I don't know the city, streets, hotels and famous sites in there very well. Suddenly, I see an American citizen on the street and ask him many questions to gain some information about the city. I mean I talk to him for 10 minutes on the street to gain some information about the streets, hotels, famous sites, near restaurants. After I finish asking many questions of him, I want to thank him and apologize him for asking many questions.

    1. Thank you so much and sorry if I bothered you by my questions.
    2. Thank you so much and sorry if I wasted your time.
    3. Thank you so much and sorry if I made you stand up and ask many questions.
    4. Thank you so much and sorry if I took your time.
    5. Thank you so much and sorry if I ..............................

    Would you please help me to say a good sentence in this context? What's your opinion about the above sentences?
    How would you say that if you were me?

    self made general question
    Thank you

    Re: to bother a person by asking many questions of him on the street

    If he allowed you to question him for 10 minutes, he was clearly happy to share his knowledge of the city with you and was neither bothered by your questions nor in any hurry to get away.

    Say 'Thank you so much for your time. I really appreciate it.'
