Our guide Lionel was very good however we felt the afternoon trip to staton island was a bit of a waste of time as this is a free trip we could have done anytime we would have preferred the time had been better utilised

Major highlights tour.
Lois_M, Nov 2022
This tour provided an opportunity to see many of the New York highlights. There was more walking than expected for a bus tour. Plenty of photo ops were provided. It would have been nice to include a high city view, which were mentioned several times.
Good trip to see all the main sites

Great Tour
DOUG_F, Nov 2022
We got to see a lot in just 6 hours. Our guide was very informative and punctual. The guide even took our pictures upon request.
Good tour but somewhat inaccurate description
Jessica_A, Nov 2022
This was a good tour, but it involved a ton more walking than I expected (or was advertised), so I wish I’d been better prepared for that. I was also really disappointed that we didn’t go to Madison Square Garden, since it was listed on the tour itinerary.

Great teaser of the city
Clara_J, Nov 2022
This was a great tour. Due to our schedule we saved it for the last day but it would be great to go the first day to help decide what you did or did not want to see on your trip. It was like a trip appetizer. Giving you just a sample of what Manhattan has to offer you. We had a few people who did not seem to respect other people’s time and maybe setting some ground rules and expectations from the tour guide right at the beginning might have been helpful.
We had a great tour guide...
Breana_B, Nov 2022

Tour guide was excellent and actually knew what he was talking about.
Gene_R, Nov 2022
All of it. It was very interesting and informative. Don't drive in the city. Take an Uber to get to the pickup point. They need a few more bathroom stops.
Great tour for Day
Dee_B, Nov 2022
A lot packed into this one day tour! Guide was very knowledgeable and shared some rich history of various sites visited. The tour was well worth anyone wanting to get an intro to the city and see the “ must see” sights. Only con was that the stops were too brief Especially the 911 memorial.
Manhattan Tour
Peter_K, Nov 2022
Gil the tour guide was superb. Saw and learned so much. Well worth it. Thank you to driver and Gil. Wonderful day.
