Absolutely fabulous experience. I get scared of heights but have always wanted to do this. Not once did I feel unsafe or scared! Scenery was spectacular and plenty of opportunities to take photos. We went higher that the other balloons flying on the same day and also went further. Breakfast lovely

Washington DC Day Trip from New York

New York City, New York

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review
Washington was great to see. The tour did drive you past the "must see" things. Was VERY disappointed that we booked an English speaking tour but once on board, our guide had to repeat everything in Spanish and another guide then did it in Italian. Therefore there was ongoing commentary which was loud and a constant intrusion. Also, this is supposed to be a 14 hour trip which is a long day but our trip was made even longer by a tyre blow-out about 1 hour away from New York city on the return journey. We were going high speed on the freeway when this occurred and initially our driver did not seem to even know it had occurred, despite the loud noise and calls/ yells from the back passengers to pull over (Maybe she didn't understand English?). Finally she did. We were then stranded in the bus on the side of an extremely busy freeway. There was initially little to no communication with the passengers about what the plan was. After about an hour, the Italian guide spoke in Italian and about 20 people stood up and left the bus. We shortly found out that an alternate mini bus had come and would be able to take some of our tour back to NYC. Another mini bus had been called but they were unsure how much longer it would take. Eventually, another 2 hours later, 2 more mini buses arrived to take us back to NYC. We arrived back in the city after midnight (over 3 hours later than planned)! I would advise trying another tour company that does English only tours and who regularly maintain their buses!

Circle Line: Beast Speedboat Ride

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review
Slightly disappointed. My son and I expected that the boat would go fast but it didn't really go much faster than the other boats that go around the Hudson river. The guide was good and told us some interesting and helpful things. Didn't get wet at all
