Scott was an excellent host on The Ride! We were fortunate to have an enthusiastic group. A woman had stopped us earlier telling us that The Ride was a waste and cost too much. We enjoyed the entire ride!

It was entertaining but did not see anything new.
Could up the price and make it longer and more things to see.

My view of this experience was tarnished by the fact is was 45 minutes late starting and we were all left standing in the boiling hot sun! We enjoyed the trip but wouldn't do it again.

The actual tour was awesome. The staff was great. My scheduled 1:00pm tour was cancelled and I was not informed until I was checking in the day of. Luckily, the 2:00 had openings.

Very interesting idea, loved the concept and overall was fun, but there could have been more performances. If you are expecting a "show" you may be disappointed as I was because it was more of a tour of some NYC sights that I had already been to and knew about. The rapper was my favorite, he was very funny and could improv very well. The tour guides were very nice but not as funny as I expected them to be after reading the Ride's website and advertsing. Also there were 2 birthdays on the ride and they tried to acknowledge them, but they got both names wrong. Kudos for trying but it would have been great if it had worked out since one of the birthdays was my husband and this was a surprise for him. Would probably not do it again, but seems like a great idea for anyone's first time in NYC. We rode it at night and the lights in Times Square were a huge plus. Overall,great concept, but needs some work to be a home run.

I have been very disappointed by this prestation.Le being seen by people on the street has really given the impression of being caged animals! The animations in the streets are not up to much and too few. The price is high for the result. Too bad!
