Fantastic walking tour with Kennedy (Ask a New Yorker), brilliant company for walk and chat and learn things about New York. Just wonderful. Started Time Square, took subway to Brooklyn bridge, walked SoHo and Village, ended up at Crosby's Street Hotel, which i a wonderful place in itself. Recommend Ask a new Yorker!!!
Excellent show- sound, music, singing, staging, lighting, costumes, acting!! Brilliant location very central to Times Square! Loved it!
Doing what: The Lion King On Broadway
Great way to see the city! Stops located everywhere. Be prepared to queue for approx 20mins at the most popular stops eg Statue of Liberty and Times Square. Also very cold on the open top deck!!

After a phone call, we were picked up in 5 minutes and drove to our hotel near Times Square in 20 minutes. Great service!
The best day of my life! Kernan was my tour guide and he certainly knew his stuff. He was enthusiastic and fun and very approachable if you wanted to ask a question. The tour itself was very well planned and allowed us to miss all the queues in the Empire State Building, an open top bus ride through Times Square, a ride down the Hudson River and numerous extras including local history and information. I gained a lot of knowledge and enjoyed every second of this tour. Suitable for all ages and abilities.
My 15 year-old granddaughter and I took this tour on July 25th. It was an easy walk over from our hotel in the Times Square area. The 75 minute boat ride was just the perfect length of time, and the tour guide was very knowledgable. He pointed out all of the sites along the way, and his fact-filled narration was peppered with trivia facts and humor. I would definitely take this cruise tour again, and would highly recommend it to anyone short on time and wanting to see the Statue of Liberty and other points of interest.

We were picked up promptly at the JFK airport for our journey to our Hotel Crown Plaza in time Square.
Although a very busy time the driver eventually got us through the traffic.
The Sedan was lovely and clean and comfortable as always as we have used them for our pick-up from Toronto Airport to Niagara Falls Hilton Hotel.
Although we paid for this pick-up in advance the driver asked us for money to go through the TOLL which I do not think was appropriate. Because we said no he did not take us through there.
We got front row seats - a lovely surprise! The whole of Broadway and Times Square is a vibrant place - absolutely buzzing! A great show we will remember forever
Doing what: Once the Musical on Broadway
I cannot rate this tour highly enough and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone wanting to see a number of tourist attractions in a short space of time. Our guide (Kerned?) was excellent and did a brilliant job keeping everyone together. Often when on tours with a large group of people, there are always a few who don't turn up at the next meeting time and we were very lucky (especially with a group of 35!) that we did not experience any delays. At the Empire State Building (first in the queue) we got into the lift with other (nervous and excited) passengers but were amazed at how quickly we reached the 80th floor. Another lift took us the rest of the way to the 86th floor. Security was tight getting in which I found very reassuring and was amazed how safe I felt so high up, looking down on so many tall buildings. We had plenty of time to take photographs and browse the shop before boarding the open top bus to our next destination.The bus took us to Times Square and along many well known streets, with the bus guide telling us what to look out for. I could happily have spent much longer on there as it was so enjoyable. We then went down and were first in the queue to look round a submarine and aircraft carrier. We were SO disappointed the we weren't able to view the space shuttle as it had been damaged by Hurricane Sandy a few months ago and the repairs were not yet completed. However, there was lots to see and again could have happily spent longer looking around it was so interesting. Despite the disappointment at not seeing the shuttle, we hadn't realised that Concorde was also there to see so that made up for some of the disappointment.Then we were first onto the water taxi and spent a very enjoyable time, with excellent commentary as we cruised down the Hudson. It was a fairly rocky journey and we felt (and looked!) drunk as we got off onto solid ground! Then we were taken on a short walking tour to the 9/11 Memorial where the tour ended. Just brilliant!
This tour is short but worth every second. We flew over ground zero, Times Square, Yankee stadium, and the Statue of Liberty. Amazing!! Well worth the money.

Doing what: New York Dinner Cruise
Great trip. So easy to see what we wanted to see ie: 911, Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island . The best surprise was at the end of the day as wew were getting off the boat a man from your company said" FREE BUS to Time Square part of your ticket price" (guess we didn't read the fine print). This bus took us to Time Square where we had dinner reservation for 5PM. Beats walking like we did to get to the boat from Time Square.
We gave all the information and phamlets we had to our bus tour director as we went to NYC from Rhode Island by bus.. She said the next trip she does she will offer this Hop On Hop Off information to anyone who would like to see the city and sites this way.. Thanks again
Oh my goodness where do I begin. Our first time to New York, so many things to do and see! We only had 5 days to do it all!! So decided to purchase the 7 day pass, was concerned about having enough time to do everything that we had on our list. I would recommend going into the web site and mapping out everything you have to do, I did a search on everything. That way if you have time left over, you can always add a few activities. Group your must do's together by location, for an example, we did the Nat History Museum, The Metropolitan Museum, and Guggenheim all in one day. We would have been able to do more but, flew in on a red eye. So the first day we picked up the pass, checked out time square, and did a night tour around the city. We also booked 2 Broadway shows, a dinner cruise, and also a carriage ride threw Central Park. So we really only used the pass for 4 full days and it still saved us $334.00. We did everything that was on our list of must do's!! Plus a couple that we added in the end. Here is what we did on the pass, NBC tour, Top of the Rock, American Museum Of Natural History, The metropolitan Museum of Art, Guggenheim Museum, Water Taxi, 9/11 Memorial, Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum, Empire State Bldg., NY Sky Ride, Madame Tussauds, Circle Line 3hr full island cruise, and Moma. We had a wonderful time in NYC would recommend the pass. Thanks Viator

The return trip from the hotel near Times Square back to Newark airport was excellent, with a prompt arrival and a smooth journey to the airport.
First class service.
The Bus and Boat tours is great to do first thing. Think of it like a cruise ship, it takes you to great places as an introduction and if you like it you can come back later. Our guide Edmond was a life time New Yorker and had so many personal bits to add to every stop. Our bus was not full, the people in our group were friendly. I did not want the tour to end. After the bus let us out in Times Square we headed to SoHo and spent the day there. We had to visit the places our guide told us about there. Well worth the money.
