First-time visit to NYC

Rachel, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour very interesting and fun. It was a very good overview for a first time visit to NYC. She also included tips of how to get around the city and a list of suggested restaurants and other places to go on our own during our trip. It was well worth the money and time.
