Great tour!
, May 2022
We had a great guide with a lot of knowledge! It was fun! The stops were nicely timed and very well thought out.
Worth it!
, May 2022
Steve was very knowledgeable, friendly, and funny. Juan our driver was also great. I'm so glad that I booked this tour because we only had one day to explore New York and this allowed us to see a lot in six hours. You would not believe how time flies and all the places you will be able to see on this tour. I highly recommend this to anyone visiting New York and I wouldn't mind doing it again.
Great tour, good guide & good value!
, May 2022
We stater with a open top smaller bus. We had a group of 8 and one other couple. That was nice. It was like it was our own private tour. The bus can close the top in the event of weather. It also had A/C. Our guide was very knowledgeable and open minded. We got a lot of information on the various different neighborhoods/areas of the city. Saw the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, The Dakota Apartments where John Lennon was Killed, the Strawberry Field memorial as well as many others. Best part of my trip was going to the 911 memorial. If there was any criticism it would be to be able to spend more time at that location. Overall a good value!
Once done, we Knew York

Steve was a super knowledgeable, caring tour guide. Great mix of New York history, info about every area, and interesting celebrity info. I really liked that he connected various sights with newsworthy events we've all heard of. I learned more about the city than in several previous visits. He has done his homework, and we got the benefit.
Great experience

Tyler did an amazing job as our guide. Our driver was awesome. The tour was well paced and a great experience.
Whirlwind of a Day
, May 2022
What a whirlwind of a day! In one day we covered most of NYC and even experienced the Staten Island Ferry. Great sunny day for the trip. Since New York is crowded (even on a Sunday), you need to be prepared to keep up with the guide on walking tours. Easy to potentially get lost in the crowds. Had a great time and would do it again.
Tour of the city

It was a good tour. You get to see a lot for a short period of time. Staten island visit takes more than an hour to just see (1) the statue of liberty from very afar and (2) see the skyline. Don't think it's worth the time. Also, I expected more info, more facts and more talking from the guide.
A great tour
, May 2022
The absolute best part of this tour was our guide. Tyler was knowledgeable, funny and made this tour a joy. She made every part of it interesting . Great tour
Highly recommended
, May 2022
Saw a lot in a short time. I suggest doing this on your first day in NYC so you can know what you want to see the rest of the trip! The Staten Island ferry was pretty disappointing, I expected an open top boat and to get closer to the Statue of Liberty. Overall, a great experience. Jerry was very knowledgeable!
Great New York Experience!
, May 2022
Visiting the 911 Memorial and the ride on the Staten Island Ferry were the most interesting parts of the tour for me. Tyler was a very knowledgeable and interesting tour guide with an enthusiasm for New York and its history. A very enjoyable tour.
