The tour was great! JP was a great guide and I would totally book a tour with him again
This tour was brilliant. The tour guide Jim was very knowledgeable, comical and helpful. We were fortunate that it was a clear dry day although bitterly cold as the view from the top of Empire State Building was amazing. You could see for miles. We skipped the queues and went straight up to the view. Afterwards a bus picked us up and took us to the harbour where we visited the Intrepid museum. You get the opportunity to go inside and walk through the submarine as well as spending time within the ship museum looking at exhibits and taking part in the interactive ones. You can also visit the cafe and shop. Next, off to Battery Park via boat to the 9/11 memoriaI. You are left here by the tour guide to look around and can either walk over Brooklyn bridge and get the boat back to Manhatten or go back where you got off to begin with. The boat on the way back goes via the Statue of Liberty and although you can't get off to go onto the island the crew are brilliant and stop directly in front so you can take photos. I would really recommend this tour as it includes a lot for the money and you can make a full day of it sightseeing in Brooklyn in the afternoon before you head back to Manhatten by boat.
The Tour was great. OUr tour guide was great. I am glad we chose this tour because it did give insight we would have not had on our own. Everything was timely. Good choice.
Excellent trip for our first full day in NYC. Took us around all the major sights and really helped us get our bearings. JD (might have been JP...oops!) was an excellent guide and really knew his stuff, always clear and articulate and happy to answer any of our questions.
Only downside was the day we went up to the empire state observation deck it was foggy we could barely see our hands in front of our faces.... in hindsight i wish I'd kept the ticket for another day.In the end it didn't matter too much as we went up to Rockerfeller center on a really clear day, so got excellent views from there.
But thoroughly recommended!
Unfortunatley the weather let us down for our tour but this did not detract from the overall experience. Empire State and Intrepid were great but then the rain set in which didn't add to the enjoyment sadly. In saying this, I would have no hesitation in recommending this tour to first time NY goers. Patrick our guide was great and obviously knew his stuff, being a native New Yorker. We would probably do this tour again in the summer when we return.
Our tour guide was a wonderful lady who did a great job in showing us parts of NYC and recommending additional places to see and things to do.
Brilliant -) Jim the guide was great - funny and informative and the tour was top notch - Thank you
Me and my daughter did this rip and it was amazing worth every penny. Our guide jp was brilliant definitely recommend it
As it was Winter my 3 friends and I were privileged enough to be the only ones in the tour group. JD was our tour guide. He was very informative from telling us where the best places to eat to the history of the buildings we past and also very entertaining. Would recommend this tour to anyone!
Laurie was just exceptional. We loved having her as our tour guide and this was a brilliant tour. A wonderful experience.
