This was our first time in New York and so we wanted to book a tour that would allow us to see as much as possible, with a knowledgable tour guide to explain the sights. We were not disappointed!

We booked the open air/glass roof mini bus and would thoroughly recommend, it allows you so see so much more of the amazing skyline!

The itinerary had to change due to there being a parade on the day we booked, so lots of road closures. They handled this really well, changing up the route and giving us the opportunity to visit Highline Park and Chelsea Market instead!

A really enjoyable trip and a great way to see lots of the most famous sights all in one day!

I’ve been to NYC quite a few times, but it was my husbands first trip, and since it was just a 3 day stay we decided to do a tour to make the most of our time in the city. We had such a great experience! Our tour guide, Buster Freeze, was a delight!! Born in Londen but a true New Yorker at heart, he was an endless book of knowledge and adoration for the city and the people. The tour hit most of the major landmarks, with short stops at places like Central Park, Rockefeller Center and the World Trade Center. By taking the bus, we were able to cover so much of Manhattan in such a short time. We took the Ferry to Staten Island, which really gives you a “true New York feel” just being among the commuters, and it gives you a pretty sweet shot of the Statue of Liberty. Our driver, Izzy, was cool + calm, and if you’ve ever been in a car in NYC can you even imagine driving a bus? No, thanks. But, I felt safe the whole trip with him behind the wheel.
Long story short: I ABSOLUTELY recommend spending the $100ish bucks to to take this tour, and if you do it near the beginning of your trip it’ll give you loads of help planning what you want to do next.

We took the upgraded tour with the smaller glass top bus (which did convert to open air later in the day) & small group of 13 tourists, SO worth the price! The glass top vehicle made it easy to see all the buildings & scenery so much better than the big bus with 30 visitors plus you can hear the tour guide easier. Gil was our tour guide & he’s fantastic. He knew so much about every single building we passed & clearly loves NYC & loves sharing the history. Took my teenager age 15, who enjoyed it too. It was our first time ever to NYC and this is the best way to see all the highlights. Gil was very efficient, he knew exactly where to have Carlos drop us & pick us up, and knew which stops to stay longer, he was a pro. Many of the stops are short as there is so much to visit in a 6 hour day. Then you can decide later if you want to come back & see more on your own another day. Gil was full of interesting tidbits about everything we passed, he was so entertaining & engaging. We saw so much on the bus portion of the tour, and then the Straten Island Ferry was wonderful seeing the NY skyline and views. The last stop was the 911 reflection ponds & Gil shared so many interesting facts about the memorial, it was very moving. We saw all of the must sees of NYC & learned so many interesting things along the way as Gil was full of fun facts & observations.

This is the first thing you are going to say when you sit down in the plush comfort of the bus and realize that there are charging outlets in every seat. Oh well, we survived this 6 hour excursion without them and had a great time, the weather being unseasonable warm at 70°. Raymond navigated the beast of a bus through such tight spaces, I felt like we were on the Night Bus from Harry Potter. And Gil, which he spelled for us because there may be more than one way to spell pronounce Gil I guess, is like the Ellis island registry of celebs in NYC. He knows who lives where and who used to and how much they paid and who their neighbors are and what kind of dog they have and if they showered this morning. . . You get my drift. His brand of facts and sarcasm were appreciated, being that I have been accused of dabbling in the art of smartassery a time or two. My favorite was the lady who obviously booked the tour and didn’t read the itinerary, and each time she asked about if we would see something he said, “Sure, you should go see that on your own.” The tour was fast for 6 hours and if you are slow, you better step it up cause Gil’s gonna call you out for taking too long to get your Atlas picture right. We saw more than we ever imagined ( no Gil, we do not want to stand in line to touch a bull’s sack) we would and when they stop for lunch, don’t guess, hit Little Italy Pizzeria and grab a slice or three. (Just kidding, nobody on that bus wants you to down 3 pieces, stick with 1 or 2.) They totally need to offer an 8 or 10 hour version as a sequel to the original tour. Well worth every penny. TN

This was a great tour to see an overview of New York city! We took this tour on the first full day we were there and it was great to see a little bit of everything so we'd know where we'd want to go and spend more time in the following days. We also got some great information about the history of the city from our tour guide! A few things to keep in mind
1) Saturdays/Sundays there's more road construction so you may spend more time in traffic than during the weekdays which means there's slightly less time to see the sights (although you still see everything).
2) For the ferry, you take the public ferry to Staten Island and once you get to Staten Island, you quickly get off and get right back on a ferry to go back to the city. It was a bit stressful to make sure we got the ferry back, especially because we had kids so just be prepared.
3) Also on the ferry to Staten Island, try to be on the right hand side of the ferry on the way to Staten Island so you can see the Statue of Liberty and on the way back, try to be on the left hand side of the ferry. The best views in my opinion are from the front of the boat.

This was the first time my wife and I have ever visited New York City but I would highly recommend this tour even if you've been to NYC before. Rachel was our knowledgeable guide and Manny was our skilled bus driver when we took this tour... and I would take any tour either had a part of in the future. Our bus was full and Rachel did a great job of creating a friendly and comfortable environment in which everyone felt welcome and comfortable. Not only did she give some great information about the sites we saw, but she educated the entire bus on how to best enjoy their time in the Big Apple with everything from shopping the stores fronts and getting the best deals from street vendors. I know I can't speak for everyone else, but I had the strong impression that everyone else on the bus enjoyed the tour as much as my wife and I,

We had an awesome experience with Tim as our guide and Miguel as our driver. We paid for the open/glass top bus and scored by ending up with a group of 11 in a 15 seat van. Having the small group made it way more enjoyable. We got to enjoy almost an entire day of sun with the top off and the windows down. Near the end of the 6+ hour tour, as we were leaving the Staten Island Ferry and making our way to the 9/11 Memorial, we encountered rain so Miguel got the bus all covered and ready for us and we did the return trip in an air conditioned vehicle, which wasn't great for pictures but was awesome to escape the heat and humidity.

Tim was very knowledgeable and pleasant, and wasn't trying to do too much or be cute like some tour guides do. He even threw in a couple perfectly timed dad jokes here and there, for good measure. He gave some great tips on places to people watch, shop and restaurants that we are already using to improve the rest of our trip. Miguel was very nice and navigated the city safely.

Definitely book this tour (the Sunday at 10 a.m. trip was perfect at every stop) because you'll never get to see all of the sites and actually know what they are and their history on your own. Also be sure to pay the extra for the open/glass top tour, it's worth every extra dime. Definitely tip them well when you're departing as they did just give you an entire day of fun and facts. This was the perfect crash course on NYC, even for people who have been to the city before.

It was a comprehensive tour in 6-6.5 hours for a day in New York City. Our Guide... forgetting his name... was a cool looking guy who lives in the Midtown area. He lead us along through the crowds with his red umbrella. He was extremely knowledgeble about everything in the city and had many recommendations along his tour for other activities or restaurants that we could also enjoy. Only regret is that we didn't sign up in enough time to get the glass top or open top bus. I think it would have really enhanced the tour. I would recommend this tour to anyone who has a limited amount of time in the city and wants to get some great photos and overview of the city.

This was my first trip to NYC ... recommend if you want to get a quick overview of the city, cultural insight, and suggestions for individual exploration. Tour guide provided great historial perspective Driver Manny was awesome navigating those narrow, double parked streets like the matrix. My only suggestion would be for tour guide to avoid inserting personal perspectives as sometimes they were not positive and took away from the tour.

We had a great day in the company of our guide Martin and driver Raymond. Both went above and beyond to make this tour and it seemed to flyby. Martin gave us much more information about the city than was even in the tour description. Having an experienced guide from the area was great, every question you asked was answered and he has a passion for New York and was giving us information nonstop for the entire tour. I would recommend this tour to anyone with an interest in knowing the stories and history behind the buildings and city to take this tour
