An absolutely terrific tour. A great combination of sites by bus and then the Statue of Liberty and Manhattan skyline by boat. I would recommend not eating before, as the first stop is the Chelsea Market, where there are lots of very good eats! J. - our tour guide has been doing this for many years and is an absolute pro. His knowledge of the city is unsurpassed. The tour lasted for almost 5 hours and kept my 13 year old entertained throughout.
This was the best tour of all! Our guide was very knowledgeable about NYC. She had a lot of anecdotal stories and they were informative on how to navigate the city better and where to go. The view of Lady Liberty blew my wife away! We even got a chance to tour Grand Central Station and the Highline, which I had forgotten was part of the itinerary and originally thought that I wouldn't have enough time to see on my own. This tour is a must when in New York City.
We would give this a 5 star rating. It was by far the best tour we had on our two-week cruise. The other tours we bought through the cruise line. Some we good - even very good - but none compared with yours. Taylor was knowledgeable, smart, enthusiastic, and well disciplined regarding all the timing necessary to make the tour a success. I will definitely look everywhere I go to see if there is a Viator tour to take. I'm sure not everyone could be as good as Taylor, but she sure sold Viator and New York to us.
Fantastic tour - we really enjoyed it. Tyler, our tour guide and Floyd our driver, were both so friendly. Tyler was extremely knowledgeable and gave many tips for our stay in NYC which we would not otherwise have been aware of. Could not recommend it enough - EXCELLENT!
It was a wonderful highlight to our trip. Our guide was knowledgeable and very friendly. It was well worth the money. If you are going to New York, these are the people to show you around.
Fantastic tour! This was a great way to see nearly every major site in NYC. Our tour guide, Tyler, was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Our driver was also great. I would definitely recommend this tour!
We saw so many things and our tour guide J. was the best. He gave a lot of great tips about where to go and where to eat. Try to do this tour early in your visit to NYC because there are alot of places you will want to revisit on your own.
A special thanks to tour guide J. and the bus driver. We were doing this tour with my elderly father who has back and mobility problems. They were so patient and kind throughout the tour and helped make this a memorable night. I felt like J. was an angel!
Tyler was a fabulous guide with insights to New York which were invaluable. The tour was small enough to allow us to have all our questions answered. Tyler kept track of us while on the cruise and took a fabulous photo of our group of three so thanks to her. Would highly recommend
The tour guide was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable and it made a great quick way of getting to know New York. The highlight had to be seeing the Statue of Liberty at night on the cruise, but there was so much more - the Highline Park, Grand Central - there were so many great things!
We liked the big screen in the front of the coach very much, it made it more possible to see what was going on, although I think that the suspension of the minibus needs fixing, in part, it was a VERY bumpy ride! Bottled water was included which was a very nice touch.
Wonderful tour with lots of interesting information and many great views! The views of the city at night from the harbor were amazing!
My trip was on 9/11. We went on a boat ride out in the harbor and we could see the NY skyline. The blue 9/11 lights could be seen. The Statue of Liberty was all lit up and at one point we sang God Bless America. It was very moving and I very glad I was able to be part of that. Of course, the rest of the things we saw on the tour we're great too but I'll remember this cruise forever. Very well done!
We joined this tour on August 20. 2016 with guide Rachael and driver Tony. We thoroughly enjoyed all the sights along the way - with Rachael's excellent tips and information. We had time to wander through the market and to experience the Highline gardens. The cruise at night is not to be missed! A great way to spend an evening in New York.
What a super introduction to New York! Tyler was a superb guide, and very enthusiastic about sharing her New York experiences.We loved the hints and tips suggestions about good food places best shopping, etc. Highly recommended.
this was the best and J the tour guide as excellent he took us to grand central station and the boat on the Hutson was excellent I give it 110
I have taken this tour and cruise twice and will definitely do so again. The guide Tyler was fantastic. Knowledgeable, friendly, happy and considerate, she makes this so enjoyable her enthusiasm is contagious. The tour of the Highline , Chelsea market and Grand Central area must and the cruise is fabulous. No hesitation recommending this tour.
Tour guide Jay was amazing! We had such a great time, and he knew just the right places to stop for photos. Everyone in my group was impressed, from the family members who have been to NYC several times who learned something new, to the 15 year old kids who are too cool for family trips. This was a highlight of our trip.
Most comprehensive tour we and #39;ve been on in a while. Would definitely recommend this tour on the first day you arrive in nyc. The next few days you can revisit the places you loved from the tour. Hope you get Gil as a tour guide. He is definitely knowledgeable and full of suggestions for your trip.
Excellent overview of NYC highlights and couldn't be easier or more relaxing. The harbor cruise was especially enjoyable. The tour lasted a little longer than four hours so you might find yourself kind of tired the last half hour.
Highly recommend it. The best way to see an awesome city. Loved it :
Had a great time with tour guide Jay! He obviously loves New York City and is eager to share information. This tour was the highlight of our weekend in New York and gave us lots of ideas for places to visit in the city.
Definitely definitely recommend this tour! ⭐️ If you want to see the best of New York City but have limited time, this trip is perfect. Also brings you to wonderful obscure gems you and #39;d miss otherwise. Tour guide Gill was exceptional; very knowledgable and charismatic. Couldn and #39;t have been better ✨
Enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide who also gave us tips on how to make the most of our stay in NY. We were part of small group which made the experience more personal. An excellent tour. One not to be missed.
We arrived too late to make this tour due to the traffic from the airport however when I explained this situation to the courteous young man on the phonesee emergency contact number he offered me a day trip of New York at no extra cost-it was fabulous. The tour guide Gil gave us so much information about the city that when we returned a week later after our cruise, we viewed New York as an old friend and we were able to go from place to place ourselves confidently.Thank you for accommodating us so well and for the exceptionally good day tour.
Tour was awesome and tour guide was very knowledgeable of all areas of New York City. I highly recommend anyone to take this tour. Enjoy
