New York City Airport Private Departure Transfer

New York City, New York

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We were met on arrival by our contact. We did have to hang around a while before leaving the airport, but this was due to an accident and nothing to do with the driver or company. Car was great, Driver was lovely, excellent service would definitely recommend.

Harlem Soul Food and Jazz Evening Tour

New York City, New York

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This is a tour you should not miss. The tour of Harlem was very interesting, the Guide very well informed, full of personality and throughout the whole evening made sure we were all well looked after. We dined at Sylvia's Soul Food Restaurant, lovely friendly atmosphere, the food was great and so much of it! The Jazz Club, Showmans, was a real old fashioned Club, quite small but lots of atmoshphere. (possibly the tiniest toilets I have ever visited). We had two complimentary champagne cocktails which were great, then enjoyed a fab selection of reasonably priced cocktails from the menu. The music was excellent, the band were clearly loving every minute of it, we also enjoyed an impromptu performance from an elderly gentleman which was wonderful. At the end of a really enjoyable evening our Driver (Carlos I think) dropped us back at our hotel to save us getting a taxi from the pick up point, and kept us entertained with a hilarious 'guided tour' of his own... we laughed till we cried. What a great end to a fabulous evening. Will repeat this tour again on our next visit. Thank You.

The Russian Tea Room Dining Experience

New York City, New York

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

My friends and I really got into the spirit of things and 'dressed up' for our visit to the Russian Tea Room, I was surprised to see other diners dressed casually. This place is amazing, absolutely beautiful, genuine paintings hanging on the walls, lots of glitz. The food was good value, traditional, I enjoyed borsche, chicken kiev and a gorgeous chocolate dessert. Drinks are quite expensive but I suppose in keeping with the surroundings. I was surprised at how quiet it was, very few diners although we booked for 8 pm. I felt it did lack atmosphere, possibly down to it being so quiet. The Manager 'talked' us through some of the paintings and was charming. We did query the final bill as it seemed high, but discovered tax is payable not only on the bill of the evening but also on the pre paid cost of the tour. We did find the waiter we queried the bill with quite rude, he argued with us in a raised voice, which was embarassing and uneccessary- we just wanted a breakdown of the bill. It did rather spoil what was an otherwise enjoyable evening. The Manager did give us tour of the rest of the Tea Rooms which were beautiful and very impressive. A great trip if you appreciate glitz, glamour and art and like to dine in quiet luxury.

Jersey Boys On Broadway

My Review

Fabulous, Amazing, thoroughly enjoyable. My friends and I booked a show through Viator on Broadway 3 years ago and were delighted with our seats, we were equally as delighted this time with great seating close to the stage. Beware the drinks in the bar were VERY expensive and very strong! The show was fabulous from beginning to end, can't recommend this highly enough.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
What a fantastic, informative and thoroughly enjoyable day! Edwin our Guide was excellent and absolutely charming, his knowledge was outstanding we picked up lots of information you just wouldn't find in a guide book. The stops were long enough to take photos and wander a little, but Edwin organised us so well we didn't miss a thing. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone travelling to New York, excellent value for money, relaxing, interesting and great fun - Thank You

New York Arrival Shuttle Transfer: Airport to Hotel

New York City, New York

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

My Review
You do get what you pay for. This shuttle service is cheap, but a fair bit of hanging around, several stops so took longer than expected.
