Empire State Building Tickets - Observatory and Optional Skip the Line Tickets

New York City, New York

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

I've given the Empire State 4 stars basically because it was an experience I wouldn't have missed. We totally picked the wrong day though because snow was flurrying across a cold, misty skyline and the view wasn't the best. The staff were very polite and smart in their burgundy uniforms, but the intense security (no doubt totally justified after 9/11 and Boston) spoiled it rather with visitors being ushered as quickly as possible through the seemingly endless security and ticket checks. Certainly a must on any visit to NY, but the romance for me has been replaced by the threat of terrorism.

New York City Guided Sightseeing Tour by Luxury Coach

New York City, New York

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This tour was worth every single dollar! The tour guide, the coach and the visits to some of New York's most famous landmarks were simply amazing. It was a full day going from Brooklyn to Ground Zero, Greenwich to Chinatown and driving down the most amazing Avenues. The lunch in Little Italy (included in the tour) was great and so was the restaurant, Grant's Tomb, the Cathedral and Central Park were very memorable as was the view from the 'Top of the Rock', but Dave (our tour guide) was incredible. His versatility, friendliness and knowledge was a credit to the tour company and so was the driver. Don't miss this trip!

Washington DC Day Trip from New York

New York City, New York

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Up at stupid o'clock, 4 hours on a coach and a tiring trip. Also, a little rushed, but who cares - Washington is an amazing Capital City and I was completely knocked out by the sites. The White House, Capitol Hill and the Lincoln Memorial were awesome and the view across the Reflecting Pool to the National Monument simply stunning. The Vietnam and Korean Memorials are thought-provoking whereas the trip to Madame Tussauds and a replica of the Oval Office, light relief. As I stood next to Mr Obama and Michelle, I felt like a midget - I didn't know those two were so tall! 5 stars doesn't do it justice really. If you really want to see DC, spend a couple of nights there, but I thoroughly recommend this trip. You also get to see a little of suburban America travelling through New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland and briefly into Virginia - well worth the early morning start!

Complete New York, New York Helicopter Tour

New York City, New York

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Well, I'd waited a long time to do this trip and if I could give 6 stars I would! This was a well-organised, well worth it experience and money well spent. Liberty Helicopters were brilliant and the views above New York simply stunning. I wish I'd gone at night as well! We flew over every landmark (or around it) from Manhattan to New Jersey and around the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Awesome! If you can afford it - do it!
