This was the perfect tour to do right when we got to New York. We were able to go back to a few spots we wanted to spend more time at. Our guide and driver were amazing.

Our bus was abused by a mentally ill vagrant while the vehicle was driving. New York Police Department was contacted for assistance due to heavy traffic caused by the incident. Tour Guide handled the situation very well and all passengers coordinated with the driver and tour guide. NYPD finally showed up and the bus was able to continue driving. Though the tour time was delayed but everyone was happy for the humor of the guide how he dealt with the case. Great Tour!

Seeing a good variety of what Manhattan has to offer. It helped us decide where we want to go explore in more depth.

We have been on many tours during our travels and this one was one of the best. Our tour guide Rachel was knowledgeable, organized and made sure we got the most out of our time. She gave insights as to how to follow-up on the places we visited for more in-depth visits. I actually witnessed Rachel recording walking directions to get to specific spots after the tour. Rachel made sure we all knew what was coming next and how to navigate the crowds. She took pictures of anyone who wanted her to. Rachel started the trip by telling us how she was going to make us New Yorkers. Mission accomplished Rachel.

Tour was amazing as was our tour guide. The tour was pretty full and it never felt crowded or too much. Tyler rocked with catering to the adults as well as my six year old. Kudos to her for making it a very informative day.

Our tour guide was excellent! She had lots of facts that she shared plus a great personality. Got the small tour group seeing a lot of the city and made it very interesting. We had a small bus that a portion of the top opened up which made the experience a lot of fun. We got off of the bus in areas where there was more to hear about and spent some time there. I would highly recommend this tour if you want to have an overall look at the highlights of New York and then you could make choices of where you might want to return to see more.
