i would thoroughly recomend this tour particulary if it your 1st time in the city,it is fantastic value for money. Pay for everything individually and including the cost of travel it would be a lot more money. We arrived at -the Empire state building at 7-15am ,15 mins early our guide Joey was already there to greet us, he told us where to go and what would happen and we were 1st in the queue,the view on the 86th floor was fantastic even though it was quite foggy.After an hour we were on our way on an open top bus trip with Joey explaining the various land marks, on to the intrepid sea,air and space museum where the space shuttle is housed,concorde and the massive aircraft carrier intrepid.. From there we boarded the new york ferry on to lower manhattan, to have our guide show us round wall street ,battery park the surrounds then finally onto the 911 memorial where Joey left us. I have to say our guide Joey was absolutely brilliant,very knowledgeable in his history of new york and his over all general knowledge we could ask him anything he was very informative.After the sad 911 memorial we boarded the new york ferry again which took us under the brooklyn bridge then on to the statue of liberty where we took lots of photos.finally we were taken back down the hudson river to our starting point of pier 84,being informed and entertained along the way back by our on board guide. A fantastic day we will never forget a big thank you to everyone involved.
What a great day! Wonderful things seen, Jim was a fantastic tour guide, a wealth of knowledge and entertaining. Thank you
So glad we booked this tour, the guide was so informative and helpful. A must do if wanting to see sights in New York. Highly recommended
This was such a good tour. Empire State Building, stunning views, then off on open top bus through NYC to intrepid. Off on a water taxi past Statue of Liberty to battery park where the tour ends just before you are handed tickets to visit 9/11 memorial. Tour ended at about 1.00. Would def recommend
This tour was fantastic. Our guide, Patrick, really knew his city inside and out. Highly recommend.
Excellent tour. Would highly recommend. The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgable. Well worth the money and to jump the queues was especially good.
This trip was really really good, would definitely recommend, Especially for your first time in New York. The Empire State is a must...the views are amazing. Wrap up warm though...it was freezing up there :-) The tour guide knew everything you asked and was very helpful and enthusiastic. Saw lots of different sights on the way around that you probably wouldn't have seen.
After the 9/11 memorial you must go on the hop on hop taxi boat to the Statue of Liberty. All in all a very good trip and well worth the money.
Loved it! Only draw back was there was a huge line for the 9-11 memorial that we had to wait on.... Liked the guide very much
We are from Texas so coming to the big apple was an exciting yet anxious plan. Our tour guide was excellent (Lorie) she did an exceptional job taking us around different sites. I'd recommend Viator to any first time visitors!
An absolute must for a notice to New York - no queueing
(except to be searched).
Would highly recommend this trip. As a first timer in NYC it really gave us our bearings and was a thoroughly enjoyable day. Empire State building was superb and it was nice to get in before the queue started to grow. Our guide Heidi from Brooklyn was superb and really gave us a flavour of the local history. Would do it all again!
