Our guide was superb, very knowledgably and walked at a pace that suited everyone . We were only a small group so it was easy to ask questions. The tour itself was very good we saw all the main points of interest in New York. Would highly recommend. My only negative comment would be, sorry that we were not in New York longer so that we could have tried other tours that we had considered.
Our first time in NYC Heidi was our tour guide 28/10/2015 for the day and was amazing, full of energy, funny and informative. The weather on the day was pretty awful wet and miserable but Heidi never let our spirits get down and kept us going all day. Would highly recommend this tour even if its not you're first time visiting NYC, I would do it all again. Thank you Heidi, Janet, Dennis, Tony wheelchair Tina and Daryl.
A must do when you're travelling to New York for a short period. Water taxi was very convenient especially if you upgrade 9-11 museum, you can go back to other destinations the next day! Debbie our tour guide was amazing.
This was a great tour! It was a little hard for my 75 year-old mom to keep up with all the walking. Jim was a fantastic guide. So full of knowledge, history and personality. We were extremely satisfied!
Our guide, Heidi, was great. We packed a lot into 5 1/2 hours. The Empire State Building, short open top bus ride, tour of sub and ship, boat ride around Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty, and finally the World Trade Center. Only complaint, it wasn't clear we couldn't stop at Statue of Liberty. Only one boat company has that contract Even with that, it was a great tour and was well worth the cost.
Heidi was a great tour guide. Very knowledgeable. Great day in New York
fantastic and I want to said that Jim did a fantastic job very funny guy he makes the trip easier and fun, he knew about what he was talking
The tour was a great introduction to New York City. Heidi was a fabulous tour guide, imparting excellent local and historical information with great humour and warmth.
Jim was the best guide. He has the humor of Larry David, and loves to talk about his City. This was our first trip to NYC ever, and he provided so many insights about the city and how to navigate Ave's vs. St's. I would love to have Jim as my personal tour guide the next time we come to NYC.
Wonderful tour. Our guide was Joey, he was amazing! Friendly, helpful and very knowledgable. We were able to most of the major sites on our five and a half hour tour. Would certainly do this again.
We meet the NYC 'vip by-pass Allll the lines' water taxi tour guide at 7:30 a.m. at the Empire State building...the guide, JIM, was a graduate of the Woody Allen/Larry David school of Comedy and was both sincerely informative , obviously in love with New York and most a witty fellow grown in the Bronx...Uppp to the top of the empire state bldg where we walked 360 degrees around for half an hour with Jim pointing out sights ... and then to ddown to an open double decker bus for a ride to times square and points of interest , with excellent dialogue from Guide JIM, to the Intrepid Carrier Museum, down into a Submarine , up onto the Carrier and though out command stations, the hanger decks and quarters ... and around the Space shuttle Enterprise Museum.....and meet the Water Taxi for a ride down the Hudson at about 11 a.m.....
Tour guides were grrrreat and in love with New York as we went down the Hudson , where the water taxis helped rescue the folks on that plane flight that landed safely in the river .... to Battery park ...where the guide continued enlightening us as to the history of the area ... as we walked past the MIB Headquarters, the Financial district Bull , and onto National September 11 Memorial and Museum /World Trade Center... were we rebuild in strength and in honor ... paying our respects we walked through the museum. Our Guide , JIm , told us even though it was 1:20 oclock that we could still get into the museum with a 2 o'clock ticket and we DID!!!
So now its after 2 pm and we are without a walking Tour Guide as planned and with great directions back to the water taxi... we grab a NYC Hot dog and back to the water taxi with our all day pass ... ride under the Brooklyn bridge , short tour up the coast with the water guide chatting most of the time and out to ride around and park at the Statue of Liberty and Views of Manhattan , back up the Hudson , disembark and a quick cab ride back to the hotel by 4:15 .....
Thanks Jim NYCWT
It was so cold but cant believe the view. The guys at the top were full of information, what stars out in that weather they are very proud of New York. Great guide on the bus and the water taxi. This is the best way to see New York. Loved the water taxi. A big thank you
Jim was wonderful! Funny, caring, knowledgeable. Tour was well-planned. I highly recommend the tour and tour company.
We have used Viator previously for other city tours and have been extremely pleased with the content/timings, efficiency and value for money, so had no hesitation in booking when travelling to New York. We were certainly not disappointed with this tour as it delivered everything that was promised and our tour guide Heidi was very informative and had a great sense of humour. We were lucky with the weather and got great views at the Empire State and having VIP access to beat the queues was a bonus. We even enjoyed the visit to the Intrepid Museum much to our surprise. Would definitely recommend this tour and we will certainly be using Viator in the future.
It was a great tour. Heidi, our tour guide, was fantastic. I had 3 others in my group and we all thought it was great. We loved the provided transportation and extra hop on/off provided. Our only recommendation would be to add more time at the Intrepid. Just another half hour would have been beneficial.
Well organised and thought out trip! Heidi, the tour guide, was brilliant. Would thoroughly recommend.
What an excellent trip from start to finish. Great guide and well worth the money.
Had the best day ever Heidi our you're guide was such a star. Very informative and made the trip all the better.
I LOVED THIS TOUR. IT WAS SO MUCH WORTH THE MONEY. VIP ACCESS. NO NEED TO MAKE LINES ANYWHERE. ALSO WANTED TO POINT OUT OUR AWESOME TOUR GUIDE DEBBIE ..YUJUUU.. THE BEST TOUR GUIDE IN NYC. SHE WAS VERY INFORMATIVE AND NICE TO EVERY SINGLE ONE. ALWAYS SMILING. LOVED SO MUCH HER GREAT EXPERIENCE AS A NYC TOUR GUIDE. MY BEST LUCK TO YOU.
Heidi was excellent. She was entertaining and well informed. We had a wonderful time and the only thing that could have made it better was a entire day tour. We will recommend this tour to any friends who visit the great city of New York.
Heidi was a great tour guide!!! She is knowledgeable, interesting, kind and even a bit appropriately funny.
Your description of the tour was well done and prepared us for the adventure.
Great value for an action filled day. The tour director had a great sense of moo our and an excellent knowledge. Highly recommended.
