5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Tour moved at a fast pace especially at the beginning, but had 3 stops later on where you could get out and see some local sites. Gary led us on our trek and pointed out as many sites as possible. Bus was comfortable. Earl did a great job maneuvering the demolition derby that is Manhattan traffic.
