This was a great tour, I suppose we were spoils as there were only 4 of us with the guide as we went to nyc just at the end of the big storm. As a result we really covered some ground. The guide must go home with a sore throat as he never paused for breath. He gave us so much information we just never would have got if we had done this on our own - not that we would have managed it on our own. Hop on hop off are ok but my recommendation would definatley be book this tour on your first day and then you really have a great idea of where you want to explore further

Great trip with a really enthusiastic tour guide. The voucher exchange was a bit long-winded, but we got off on time and had a great and full day. We took the tour at the start of our short break and it was really useful for helping to subsequently get our bearings. Well worth doing in our opinion.

This was an excellent tour. Our guide, Serge has a great knowledge of New York. My Wife and I could not have seen as much as we did, doing this on our own. The visit to the 9/11 memorial was quite emotional,the trip around the harbour and the Statue of Liberty was very good. We had a lovely lunch in Little Italy. Last,but not least, thanks to our coach driver Robert.
