I highly recommend this tour. Our tour guide Heidi was a native New Yorker and was very knowledgeable about the history and geography of New York. We leaned more than we expected! This tour was worth the price and allowed us to see and experience many things on our list.

Really good tour and great to skip the long lines! Guide was very good. Small group. The only criticism is there wasn't really a walking tour of Lower Manhattan it was just the walk you have to do to get from the Water Taxi to the 9/11 Memorial. However, still a tour I would highly recommend for anyone visiting New York who is short on time. The USS Intrepid ticket is all day so, with the 48 hour Water Taxi ticket, we sailed back to Intrepid after the tour was over and spent a bit longer there, enjoying this fabulous piece of Naval History. We certainly got our money's worth out of the 2 day Water Taxi ticket. The next day we caught the Subway to Brooklyn Bridge. Thenn we walked across into Brooklyn and then caught the Water Taxi back to the Battery for a deeper look around because, as mentioned before, there wasn't much in the way of a Lower Manhattan walking tour. We then caught the Water Taxi again back to the Intrepid as that was near our hotel. Combining the Tube sorry the Subway! and Water Taxi, meant navigating around New York wasn't too difficult!

Great tour, for a first timer to New York, I would have picked another tour because there were other sites, I wanted to see. But this tour is very good as delivers what it promises. I loved the Empire State Building! I got some great pictures! A LOT OF WALKING... just beware and my tour group had a lot children.

Loved this tour, it was a busy day with a very early start but well worth it to see the Empire State and Intrepid museum before the crowds. Heidi did a great job leading the tour. Highly recommend this!

Great tour, shame about the weather! Had tried to change this to the day before - when the weather was good!! However, the tour company had emailed to say it was okay before we left the UK but we were stood up as they did not meet this commitment and reverted to the original day- that was very disappointing as we could not make use of the 2nd day hop on hop off cruisetickets as it was our last day in NY. However, the tour is good and our guide -Heidi - made it a fun day despite the dreadful weather on that day!

The tour was spoilt by the guide, Mike.
His knowledge of the tour was good, however he spoilt it by never shutting up.
Weak jokes and continually making fun of people.
Lots of walking and not recommended for the elderly unless they are very fit.
We got so bored of the chatter that we left the tour early and did our own thing.

This tour was one of the highlights of our trip! Jim was a terrific guide. he had a lot of knowledge about the city and buildings. He clearly was very proud of his New York heritage and had a contaigious joyful spirit. : our family of 5 3 kids ages 10, 15, 18 enjoyed him and all of the history, knowledge he shared! Our tour was only 11 people so he was able to share a lot more with us and show us things that we didn't know we would get to see! and the VIP aspect was a nice bonus...passing lines and not standing in the cold. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TRIP!
