New York City, New York
We had a fabulous 90 minute tour of the harbour. The guide was very informative and provided enough information on the different buildings, bridges and the Statue of Liberty. He was aware of not talking too much and spent time with individuals answering questions. The booking in at the start of the tour was smooth and well organised. i would definitely book with this company again.
New York City, New York
This tour was good for the first hour, walking around the financial area and taking in Wall Street and hearing about the gold reserves. However, as a tour of ground zero it was nothing like what was described in the advert. The second hour, which was supposed to be about ground zero, was not at all informative. The guide - Ron - provided very little information and could not answer a number of questions.
The advert for this tour stated...... " You'll meet your guide within walking distance of the Ground Zero site, where you'll embark on a 2-hour journey into the bravery, passion, and tragedy of 9/11. Your guide will share key facts, illuminating events and heartbreaking stories of the tragic day while weaving through the various attractions within the World Trade Center area. You'll explore surrounding New York sites including St Paul’s Chapel, the American Express Eleven Tears Memorial, Winter Garden and, of course, the Ground Zero site. Your guide will take you through the various attractions, giving you ample opportunity for reflection and contemplation. You are welcome to bring flowers or tributes to place by the site"
We did go into the America Express Building, and that is where we were taken to view ground zero. I think you will understand our disappointment when I tell you that the view of the area was across 3 lanes of traffic and through some very small windows we had a very poor view of the area. The guide, Ron, did not provide a story of bravery or passion, he gave the impression that he would rather not talk about it.... 3/4 of the group left and did not finish the tour, that says something of the lack of quality. I would not recommend this tour
