New York City Guided Sightseeing Tour by Luxury Coach

New York City, New York

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We pre-booked this tour for the first day of our 5-day New York holiday and it was a perfect introduction to the city and very good value for money as it included lunch, a boat trip and tickets to the Top of the Rock. The guide (Serge) and driver (Reggie) were excellent and we thoroughly recommend it. Note that if you pre-book you have to exchange your printout for a "boarding card" at the Gray Line office on 8th Avenue (where the tour departs) so get there early and don't forget to take ID with you (it does say this on the print out but I forgot and we had to go back to the hotel to get it).

Shared Arrival Transfer: New York Airports to Hotel

New York City, New York

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

A good cheaper alternative to a taxi - good for people like us who had never visited the city before. We had to wait a little while and things seemed a bit chaotic and disorganised ... but it worked out ok and we needn't have worried. Also it wasn't a great introduction to New York that on arrival at the hotel the driver demanded $5 as a tip. The constant tipping does take some getting used to for non-Americans and such a charmless request within a short time of arriving wasn't exactly a positive experience.
