Due to a flight cancellation in Detroit we missed our connecting flight to NY and our tour date. They accommodated the next day without any problem. The tour was excellent and well planned. I can't believe what we accomplished in a limited time. The front of line pass is a must. This saved our trip.
This trip and tour were outstanding. Our guide, JP was fantastic and very knowledgeable, even with a sore throat. We had beautiful weather and took some great pictures. JP helped with that as well. I would highly recommend this tour!
We met outside the Empire State Building at 7.15 in the morning so this is not for the faint hearted. JP our tour guide was brilliant from start to finish. It was great to avoid the queues by being the first people in. JP explained where everything was and obliged taking photos of people when asked. The bus tour was informative and took us around mid Manhattan. The Intrepid and submarine tour touched on everything we wanted to see and again we avoided all the queues. The boat trip was great with good views from the water to the Manhattan skyline. The tour with JP ended at the 9/11 memorial. I can honestly say that his input made this trip even better and I even won one of his badges!!! Superb guide, superb tour. However it does not finish there, as you can then use your water taxi ticket to go back uptown. The boat crew was great giving fantastic views of the statue of liberty and hanging around enough so that you all got great pictures. Well worth the money as we saw so much of Manhattan in a condensed time. Thanks JP.
Had a super day - one of the best from the entire holiday actually - greatly recommended. We had the most pleasant, friendly and knowledgeable tour guide, Debbie. Just listening to her stories alone is worth it, you won't meet many people like her.
My trip to New York was amazing. This tour was wonderful and unforgettable. Debbie was our tour guide and it is because of her that I will always remember. She was THE BEST!!She was informative but also funny. It is obvious that she LOVES her job and the city which made the tour emotional and personal. This was seriously one of the best experiences of my life and am so happy we got Debbie as our tour guide. Thank you so much!!
Excellent way to see New York, Patrick our guide was fantastic and new everything about the city including any ad hoc questions presented to him.
We loved this tour. And our tour guide was soooo great. I would recommend this trip to everyone. It was so special to be vip and get in first before a line
This tour was great value for money and our guide Debbie was lovely. It makes such a difference just having to listen to someone who knows all about the places giving you all the information. Thoroughly recommend this tour
Great tour, JP our tour guide was fab

JP was amazing, answered everyone's question and made a city that we were not enjoying quite fun. Thank you!
This tour was awesome! It was my first time in NYC. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone that is making their first trip. The guide was very informative and answered any and all questions. If I ever come back to NYC I will look to Viator for another tour.
Well organized trip. You'll also experience New York City water taxi. Tour guide is nice and helpful.
This seems to be the best way to see as much as possible in a day. It was well worth the time and money. Heidi has to be your best guide. The only thing I would suggest is to have transportation back to the start of the tour. Since the water taxi is an all day pass, it would be nice to have the same thing for the open top bus.
The tour was awesome... everything was carried out as promised. Tour guide was great! The ability to cut through the long waits at the various stops was worth the price of the tour alone. We learned and saw so much, and the day was complete with new knowledge of NY, and beautiful pictures! Highly recommend this tour
