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!
The tour started at the Empire State Building where we were greeted by our friendly guide. The group was small and a positive for the day. We were able to go up before the public and through and express channel. The views were fantastic and unspoilt due to the fact we were the first people up. This was the same when we arrived at the Intrepid - fast tracked and first in. We had limited time and where able to return with our stamps.
We headed to the boat tour and treat ourselves to a glass or prosecco and enjoyed the tours.
At the 911 monument we were left by the guide but had pre paid tickets which again meant we skipped another long line .
The tour included much more than we expected, the guide was lovely and we particularly enjoyed being able to return to the boat/attractions to explore further.
Brilliant tour, would recommend 100 percent, excellent in every way our guide was excellent.
Very disappointing tour, except for The Empire State Bldg. From there it went downhill. Waste of time and money. Debbie was obnoxious. The Intrepid tour was way too long. Never got to see Statue of Liberty. And with tickets still had a over an hour at the 9 11 Memorial. Would not recommend tour
Brilliant Tour, early entry to the Empire State Building and 911 memorial was worth the cost alone. The time allocation for each site was perfect and the hop on hop off water taxi was great as we utilised our ticket for the remainder of the day to head to Brooklyn and the Statue of Liberty.
Being part of this trip realy reduced time standing in lines. We would not have been able to see everything in one day on our own.
