Really great experience. With a guide and van you are able to cover so much of NYC. From downtown to Brooklyn. You also get to talk to someone who is a native of NYC and knows some wonderful iconic shops and delis and places. As a first timer to NYC you are able to get an overview and orient yourself to the greatest city on earth. We managed to go back ourselves at later days and explore in more depth. Like century 21. James was enlightening and had a wealth of experiences to draw upon. Thanks mate.
First rate experience. The guide arrived ahead of time. He was extremely knowledgably, pleasant and entertaining. We saw many areas we could not possibly have known about ourselves. His knowledge of celebrities was amazing. The SUV was extremely confortable. Altogether the best tour in NYC.
Really recommend this for big groups : You don't spend the whole time in the vehicle either, you get down from time to time to go explore.. loved it and only wishing we got the longer 5hr tour
Very knowledgeable man. We enjoyed this tour and learned a great deal. It was one of the best parts of our vacation in NYC! topped only by Broadway play
This was the best thing I ever organised for us for myself and two twent something children. Lantos our drive was fantastic, he was so knowledgeable, taking us to places that we would perhaps not of gone to, he was able to tell us anything we wanted to know. He told us the best photo opportunities and places to go. Have recommended to friends already and my American friends also would like to do the tour who have visit NY several times as, we were telling them things about the city that they never knew about or visited. This tour is definitely a must
Fun day. Our driver James, was most knowledgable and very personable. We enjoyed our time together.
Would highly recommend this tour we had James as our guide and he was brilliant he was extremely knowledgeable we managed to see so many sights within this 3 hour tour it's a brilliant way of getting out of the heart of New York and around the outskirts to get your bearings of were everything is located James kept stopping at various places for us to take photos and at 911 memorial site he dropped us of at a meeting point so we could visit at no point was we given a time limit it was down to us how long we took at each place to wander around and take photos a throughly brilliant day we have got some really nice photos plus we learnt a lot about New York and its history this is a great way of seeing New York when your only doing 3 or 4 days and want to see as much as you possibly can.
We cannot recommend this tour highly enough, we had a most professional and knowledgeable guide in Ianto who made our second visit to New York as exciting as the first. Weaving through the traffic in the comfort lf an SUV having all the points of interest and their history pointed out in detail made this trip a sheer pleasure.
All we can say is that it felt as if we were being guided by a friend, so if you are lucky enough to get Ianto as your guide you will be in for a great three hour tour!!
Our tour guide, Ianto, was wonderful. He showed us not only the important sites but the fun ones too! We would recommend him to anyone. Southern Ladies
This tour was great and my guide (James) was amazing and really new his stuff. Really gave me an insight and overview of New York City. Thank you
This trip was amazing. Our driver James, (Jimmy), was the perfect guide showing us places and things that we would never have discovered on our own. We also saw all the usual sights and covered a lot of ground in 5 hours.
Although expensive this was well worth the money.
My wife and I did this tour on the day we arrived in NYC
We were collected from our hotel by SUV with a glass roof and a really friendly and knowledgable guide
The trip can only be described as AMAZING, we were taken to places we'd never have found or known about
The guide just knew everywhere and was pleased to share his knowledge and snippets about New York
On our next trip to NYC we will definitely do this again
Another great experience with Viator
This tour was very good in that it gave us a complete overview of all of NYC. We were happy that we did this and got to see it all early on in our vacation. We then knew what we wanted to go back to and visit. Ianto was a knowledgeable tour guide and provided a great deal of background information and took us across the entire island. My only negative comments would be that he stopped initially to the places that he wanted us to see and get out. He seemed to control the itinerary and didn't want to deviate from it. He also almost got into a couple of accidents with us since he wasn't paying attention to the road and was busy showing us maps or other information. This was interesting, but the timing wasn't great and often scary.
Great tour of New York and guide was awesome along with being very informative. Arrived on time and was very flexible as to what to see.

Firstly we use and recommend Viator as we feel that you are very reliable, however we very disappointed
On confirming the guidehe knew we were 4 seniors. On arrival he was in a small SUV we were all very cramped.He also took us to the Red Rooster for lunch but as it was Sunday the were fully booked, he asked why I had not made a reservationHe should have so we ended up with a sandwich. The car was hired and we hope insured for commercial use. Although he was pleasant and seemed to know his facts dovetailing with the previous days tour, he did not know the roads went up a one way the wrong way and stopped by the police, nearly hitting a cab at another stage. So all in all we were very disappointed.
