New York TV and Movie Sites Tour

New York City, New York

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

I booked this tour from the UK. Viator staff were excellent and really helpful. This was my first trip to New York, with my 16 year old daughter. I would highly recommend this trip. Our guide was brilliant, she was so knowledgeable about New York and the various movie sites. We all got treats and a pack so you could look up the movies sites which were covered ( the whole place is like a film set). It was a real fun day... the best part for us was singing the theme tune to friends... the whole tour joined in!... We loved it... and I have since recommended it to other people who are going. In terms of the booking arrangements etc... this was really easy, I printed off the voucher which Viator sent, and when I got to New York, made a local call to the tour office to confirm my attendance. On the day It was a simple matter of showing the electronic voucher.

My Review

The booking arrangements with Viator were excellent and I would use them again. I booked this tour from the UK, and printed off the vouchers. You have to take these to the local office which is on 9th Avenue (I think)... in any event it literally is just off times square. The arrangements are brilliant... literally hop on and off at your leisure. The buses last run is at 6.00 p.m. The guides are very knowledgeable and give you all the information needed. The loops are mid town/ down town brooklyn ( round time square, 5th avenue down by battery park and 9/11/ the village/ china town etc) ... the bus goes over the Manhattan Bridge so you can take photo's of the Brooklyn bridge... but you can get off in Brooklyn and walk back over the Brooklyn Bridge if you want.. I didn;t on this occasion. The other tour is Uptown (central park, Harlem etc). There is also a night tour ( a bit chilly) and one which takes you over to the Bronx, with a stop at the Yankee Stadium. All the guides were really great and shared lots of info with you... I would recommend as a great way of getting around Manhattan.

It was great to see a Broadway show...... but it was not the best performance I have seen of Chigago.

Viator VIP: Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty and 9/11 Memorial

New York City, New York

My Review

Brilliant, Brilliant, Brilliant... My first trip to New York with my daughter who was 16 whilst we were there. Booking arrangements with Viator were excellent, the staff were so helpful, and sent the vouchers almost immediately. All I had to do was print them off, take them with us and present them to the guide for the tour.
this one is an early start, but you miss the crowds at the Empire State. Our guide, Jim was fabulous.... so knowledgeable, helpful and very witty!. After the Empire State... its on a short bus ride to Interpid... and again Jim gives really good tips on what to do first... after that its on the New York Water Taxi... and off for a short walk around Battery Park, where you get tickets for entrance to 9/11. You get hop on hop off tickets to see the statue of Liberty at your leisure. It was great for me and my daughter, but if you have mobility challenges... then this may not be such a good tour for you.
