Night tour and top of the Rock were amazing and worth booking . Statue of liberty well worth the visit beautiful place ...
we had a tour guide called Remy Germinario and he was fantastic very knowledgeable of the 9/11 Memorial and statue of liberty. It was a small group of only 7 people for the tour and he made it very interesting for all of us
well organized and fantastic experience,helicopter felt like a VIP one and views were fab,only down side we were dropped at pier for water taxi at 6.45pm and when we looked at tickets cruise did not leave until 7.30,we were left to wait for 45mins and the temperature was -9!!! cruise was great if not a little hairy as the hudson river was frozen so boat struggled a bit,but they got us to statue of liberty which was amazing.crew were fab,informative and funny and luckily hot drinks were available on board.we were then dropped in times square,well worth the money and the frozen toes!
We were the only two on this trip, so we had a personal guided tour. Our tour guide was Remy who thoroughly looked after us. It was a freezing cold day but he took his time to tell us everything and then took us to Trinity Church where we could warm up inside the building before moving on to 9/11. 9/11 was amazing and truly emotional. Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island were well worth it. The whole trip was well worth the money and we were pleased that we had booked online before we got to NY.
Met with our guide Danny on a very very cold Tuesday morning outside the New York stock exchange for our walking tour. He was very friendly and welcoming and as we were a small group he was able to engage with all of us. The tour started at the stock exchange and continued to Wall Street and Trinity church. Danny's knowledge and communication was excellent and he gave good insight to the start of what is now New York . After then was a sombre tour to the 911 Memorial. Again Danny's talk was very insightful and he left us to wander the sight ourselves to soak up the atmosphere. After a short walk, we arrived at Battery Park where we were given tickets for Ellis Island and Statue of Liberty, we the left Danny to tour these on our own.
This tour involves a fair bit of walking so good shoes are required. The level of knowledge shown was excellent and we really enjoyed this tour.
We had an amazing time visiting 9/11 memorial we was there 10 yrs ago how things have changed! Also had great time visiting Statue of Liberty!!
Value for money, particularly with the Empire State and Statue of Liberty free tickets, lots of routes to choose from that give access to all the top attractions
Good tri. We last took a trip to the Statue of Liberty 25 years ago and although the sly line has changed noticably, and it was much colder, we enjoyed the trip
Doing what: Circle Line: Complete Manhattan Island Cruise
The weather was lousy for our tour. Uncontrollable I know, but even so our guide Jim was bright eyed and bushy tailed for the duration. He provided several options for accessing the Empire State building, which as a small group, we used. We must have misread the tour as we though we were actually going up the Statue of Liberty, but that never happened. We didn't realise we were going around it on a boat :-( The best part I found was the walk through of the submarine Growler. The Intrepid and Enterprise was OK if not a little rushed. The 9/11 memorial was nice. We appreciated the meal subsidy and overall we found Jim to be entertaining. I sometimes thought the tour was more about the guide than the subject matter, but I have to admit it was enjoyable.
The cruise was incredible! Perfect timing, daylight when we left and watched the lights come up over the cityscape and pulled up to the Statue of Liberty at sunset......very moving and beautiful. Very pleased with the trip, guide was terrific, price was good and easy to book. Highly recommend.
Doing what: New York City Twilight Cruise
Brilliant, Brilliant, Brilliant... My first trip to New York with my daughter who was 16 whilst we were there. Booking arrangements with Viator were excellent, the staff were so helpful, and sent the vouchers almost immediately. All I had to do was print them off, take them with us and present them to the guide for the tour.
this one is an early start, but you miss the crowds at the Empire State. Our guide, Jim was fabulous.... so knowledgeable, helpful and very witty!. After the Empire State... its on a short bus ride to Interpid... and again Jim gives really good tips on what to do first... after that its on the New York Water Taxi... and off for a short walk around Battery Park, where you get tickets for entrance to 9/11. You get hop on hop off tickets to see the statue of Liberty at your leisure. It was great for me and my daughter, but if you have mobility challenges... then this may not be such a good tour for you.

Debbie was GREAT!!! She was very informative and made our experience lively and fun. Definitely worth it!!! On the internet, the advertisement said that we would go to the Statue of Liberty, however, we ended up going to the Intrepid Air and Space museum, which was also a nice stop. We only saw Lady Liberty from atop the Empire State Building and the Water Ferry.
All in all, a great experience! Thanks, Debbie, for being a great tour guide!
LOVED LOVED LOVED THE TOUR! Had some family come in from out of town. They wanted to see the "main" attractions in NYC. This was it. The tour started early, but it was worth it. It DIDNt take up your whole day. I HIGHLY recommend you bring snacks because there aren't any food stops. It was perfect timing to stop... Take pictures... Then keep moving. Our tour guide was experienced AND funny (corny) but FUNNY! He started the jokes early... And never lost his mojo! Not too much walking. Good experience to take the water taxi. In all honesty, we didn't see the Statue of Liberty. It's more like passing by. Like I said they wanted to see the "touristy" stuff so this was perfect for us. You get VIP status into the attractions and barely any waiting. The longest we waited for was the 9/11 Memorial, but we were moving the whole time, it's just a matter of getting through security ( which was expected) it took us like 20 min tops to get through.... Again because we had the VIP passes. It's NOT SMART to just go to the 9/11 Memorial without tickets already.... That line looked more like 2nrs. ALL IN ALL a great tour. Loved our tour guide. Loved that it was stop and go. Kept a good pace. I would recommend wearing some decent walking shoes or at least comfortable. The only bathroom places are Empire State...Intrepid... Water taxi, so USE YOUR SOURCES before you get to the 9/11 memorial. If you want to take a glance at the touristy sites this tour is for you!
I would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone wanting a quick tour of NYC highlights. The early start means you get the most out of the day, and having the Water Taxi all day pass after the tour ends at the 9/11 Memorial (where you can linger for as long as you want), means we could have a leisurely lunch before using our passes to get back on the water taxi to go out to see the Statue of Liberty (not part of the official tour and there is no getting off at the Island, just a view from the water). Our tour guide was fantastic, very knowledgeable and funny. The only downside was that it was very cold on the day we went, so being on top of the Empire State Building and on top of a double decker bus wasn't the most comfortable. On a warm day it would be awesome.
Our group of four really enjoyed the tour - especially getting to see the sites with minimal lines. The view from the Empire State building was gorgeous - and we enjoyed not having to fight for an open spot to view from. The double-decker tour bus ride was brief, but a fun experience. We really enjoyed the water taxi rides and the tour guides we had on that. We got a lovely view/photo opportunity of the Brooklyn Bridge and of the Statue of Liberty. The line for the 9/11 Memorial was long by the time we got there, but the memorial was breathtaking and worth the wait. I felt that the timing was very well arranged for everything - to keep us moving without feeling rushed. The only time we felt rushed was at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum. However, we were given our tickets to the water taxi incase we wanted to stay longer and make our own way to the 9/11 Memorial. Also, our handstamps were valid for the whole day, so we could have easily stopped back by after returning from the water taxi ride.
