Cheryl

We did the Premium Tour and we could not have been happier. It was our first day in NYC and the perfect time to do the tour as we ...got to see so much, that we probably wouldn't have seen doing it on our own. Everything was packing into 7 hours and Stefan was an excellent tour guide, it was like hanging out with a friend and Karen was a fantastic driver, they were both very friendly. I recommend this trip to everyone going to NYC whether it be your first or tenth time as you will most likely see something for the first time. Thank you!! more

My grandson and I took this tour and could not have been happier with what we learned about the city, with the clear orientation t...o the city, the history provided, the upbeat tone, and the general comfort of the tour. It was the perfect introduction to the city. When I asked my grandson, age 17, he named this tour as the number one thing to do when I take his cousin in a couple of months. Thank you for doing a superb job. Georganne

Brilliant tour, our guide Ryan was very friendly and gave us a lot of interesting background information about the places we visit...ed. Only quibble was that we struggled to find the meeting point for the start of the tour as there was no specific meeting point just the street; but all in all a brilliant day out. more

Loelle

it was very intresting Jerry the guide and Chealsea the driver were hospitable and informative. thank you

Gail

The tour was cancelled on the actual day we booked it due to the snow so we had to rearrange for the next day which the company di...d with no problems. The tour takes you all over NY and the guides explain everything and get off the bus with you which is nice. i was disappointed that we only got the ferry past the statue of Liberty and not actually went to the island but I think that was my mistake. A recommended tour more

Valerie

A little more time for photographs

Robin

We had a really good time on Sunday Oct 14th with our guide Joel and our driver Patricia. We saw interesting and beautiful sights ...and Joel offerd us insight we wouldn't have been able to get elsewhere. The 1-hour-cruise was an added bonus. Although it was really windy it was also as sunny as it could be. Our needs for lunch and bathroom breaks were accommodated. Also, it was great that we had our own bus. Thank you! more
