Gil and Anthony one day tour was fabulous
Michele Carlton, Dec 2019 Verified
Gil and Anthony were terrific. Our first time in the city. We only had one day to see as much as we could. We were amazed at how much we saw. We definitely thought the price was very reasonable for all we did. We highly recommend this. Gil was very knowledgeable of the city as a whole and made the trip personal for everyone. Remembering where people were from and making it memorable. Thank you so much for a great day
First time in the Big Apple.

This is a must do trip if you have never been in nyc before. Well worth the money.

Ok, seeing everything in New York is an impossibility, but Gill and Roy gave it a great shot. From Broadway to Times Square, from the Rockefeller Center to the 911 Memorial, and culminating in a boat ride down the Hudson and around the Statue of Liberty, everyone on board our beautiful new bus were treated to a tantalizing glimpse of the sights and people of NYC. My daughter and I will be back to see more of this wonderful city. Thanks!!

This tour was an excellent way to see/visit high points in NYC when there with limited time. Our guide, Rachel, was the best - humorous, very knowledgeable, organized, and full of important information and tips on visiting and getting around the city. I highly recommend this tour, especially with this guide.

New York has so mucj to offer and this tour provided a wonderful orientation and introduction to the major attractions. The tour guide was very informative and entertaining, giving insights into the history of the various districts and their individual characteristics. For the first-time visitor the tour ticks all the essential boxes from Central Park, midtown to lower Manhattan, the 9/11 memorial and the vistas from the Hudson and a close encounter with lady Liberty. After doing this tour we were much more informed about the areas and attractions we wanted to spend more time exploring. A must-do to get your bearings and a valuable introduction to New York .

Mike the tour guide and Jerry the driver were both excellent. The tour itself covers many iconic must-sees while in Manhattan and Mike is a native born who has lots of knowledge and a positive delivery to a lot of info. Well worth the reasonable cost. Boating past Lady Liberty is not to be missed!

A great tour. We had Rachel as our tour guide and she went beyond what was required to make sure we saw all the major sites and help us avoid lines. She was very entertaining.

This tour is a must when you arrive at NY it is brilliant you get to see the most iconic sights and areas of NY and surprisingly you feel more familiar with the surroundings after. Ronda our tour guide was absolutely brilliant really knoweldgeable but such wit and fun and we all have said Ronda made our first day the best possible and memorable From doing this trip it was the best way to know which sights were the most important for us to see and we had the full day the next day with Cool Destinations visiting Statue Ellis and 9/11 in much more detail We were 5 friends visiting NY and we all agreed this day was so much fun and it gave us the best tips on where to go I would strongly recommend this day as its not too much if you are not as active and you get to see so much and hear the history and facts told brilliantly by the brilliant Ronda

A packed tour that gives a great overview of Manhattan and includes a boat trip to see the Statue of Liberty. Our guide Dana was terrific and our driver Roy a magician on the Mean streets of the Big Apple. Worth the money to see a lot of this great city with a minimal amount of walking.
