Rachel was very knowledgeable about everything, she knows her stuff. She was friendly and personable and gave us a great tour. I’ve been on the 5 hour tour with Cool Destinations a few years ago were we went close to the Statue of Liberty. I was disappointed that my grandson had to see it from such a distance. I think this was misrepresented on line. I brought him here for his birthday. This was my first Cool Destinations tour ( you’re the only company I use) were I felt disappointed at the content. This had nothing to do with Rachel, she’s pretty amazing.

Great trip. We saw everything we wanted to see in 6 hours. The tour guide was very funny and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this tour.

We enjoyed our tour with a tour guide called Brooklyn. He sure knows the history of NY and loves to narrate the story. He's very friendly, and with a lot of positive energy. He recommended us restaurants to go eat and got out of his way to call one of the restaurants to make sure they take good care of us. I would definitely recommend this tour guide / tour company.

Our tour guide was the best. Debbie was very knowledgeable and told us all about the architects who designed the bridges and buildings. She showed us beautiful personal photos and took several of us. We left feeling we didn't miss seeing and learning about anything in New York.

The whole experience was AWESOME! Racheal our tour guide was THE BEST! Anthony our driver was pleasant and so gracious. He drove us like a true professional. My husband and I would never have been able to see all the wonderful sights we saw if we had done this on our own. We certainly look forward to doing our next trip to NYC with you. Great way to celebrate a birthday. I will certainly recommend this tour experience to family and friends.

New York bus tour was excellent. Guide Tyler gave detailed information and added some stops depending on customers’ questions. Could not have a better overview of the city.

Rachel, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour very interesting and fun. It was a very good overview for a first time visit to NYC. She also included tips of how to get around the city and a list of suggested restaurants and other places to go on our own during our trip. It was well worth the money and time.
