We had a wonderful time! We actually learned a thing or two. Our tour guide Rachel was great! Very informative and loved her energy. She did wonderful!
This was a highlight of our trip to NYC. The tour was amazing, informative and pleasant. Remy, our guide was fantastic!!! Funny and informative. We arrived a bit late, but a phone call and a quick walk and we joined the group. They had already called looking for us and made joing in easy. the 9/11 Memorial was awe inspiring and the tour was excellent. Despite it being 33 degrees we loved the tour. Added at the end was the trip to Ellis Island and the Statue. Tickets to the boat were VIP and easy. The trip was great and we loved the whole experience.
The tour guide, Rachel M, made this tour awesome. She was very warm, welcoming and animated in her telling of the stories and facts about Wall Street. You could really sense she loves being in New York and that made her more loveable!
The meeting place was easy to get to and easy to spot, near the New York Stock Exchange. We first went to where the original "Wall" foundations were, and was shown the marks left on a building wall by the first terrorist attack in the city, was shown around Federal Hall and then we went to Trinity Church then walked around 9/11 Memorial. We were told anecdotes about key some key people instrumental to the success/progress of Wall Street and the city. The bathroom breaks were adequate and we were not at all rushed. We went our separate ways upon entering the screening area for the State Cruises.
This tour is worth-it not only because of the walking tour but because of the pedestal access ticket. Keep in mind that once you get to Liberty Island, you can roam around in the grounds and follow the audio guide and spend time indoors in the museum then head up to the pedestal. Allot at least a whole day for this tour to really appreciate it. I think the pedestal access made it special because not all can enter the pedestal. If you are physically able to climb stairs, I recommend that you actually climb up 125 or so steps. You can rest in between landings and just take your time. The view from the pedestal is great. Plus, you can snap a different view of Lady Liberty, up close!
When you're booking, check weather forecasts frequently as your booking date nears. On my tour date, I was aware it was going to rain and snow later in the afternoon. The snow came a little early than I anticipated from the forecast. By around 3pm, I was wet, cold and kind of tired because of the weather. I chose not to go to Ellis Island anymore. But I was really glad I took this tour! I just had some bad luck with the weather!
This tour was great. Our tour guide Rachel was enthusiastic and knowledgeable and really made it worthwhile and poignant.
What a fantastic tour. Our tour guide (Pat) was very knowledgeable and provided some great stories throughout the trip. He gave us enough time to explore the different sites without pressuring us too much. The only disappointment was the long line to get on the ferry. I thought with our "fast pass" that we would skip most of that line, but we did not. Otherwise a great value!
Great trip although the weather later in the day turned very wet. Rachel the guide was excellent. In fact 12 out of 10. She was fun and very informative. Glad we had her. She made the whole experience come alive and told us loads of stuff that was interesting and consistently put together.
Great trip made by Rachel.
The tour was everything it was advertised to be. Right on time and very informative.
This tour was fantastic! We really liked our guide, as he was very knowledgable and we learned much more than we were expecting to. Would definitely recommend it ☺
the tour was an amazing and our guide was very fun, informative, and great! We highly recommend him and hope that your other guides are just as great and fun as he was thank you so much
If you wish to see statue of liberty and the 9/11 memorial the commentary is interesting
Excellent tour around the Financial District and to 9/11 Memorial. Our guide (Remmy) provided plenty of information, history, answered all our questions, all with a fantastic sense of humour. We booked this tour for Day1 of our New York weekend and found it a great combination. The trip over to the Statue or Liberty and Ellis Island is a must. Views of the city from the ferry/island amazing. Remmy had organised the ferry/entry tickets and we could skip the line (always a plus!).
Thoroughly recommend this tour and the tour guide.
BTW - We popped back to see inside the 911 museum another day. I'm glad we did it that way.
It was Great Patrick was very knowledgeable and had good information that. I had not heard before about New York.
Really recommend this trip. Our tour guide Rachel made this enlightening, enjoyable and totally entertaining. Thank you.
