    Well worth taking the trip and amazingly it’s free - in NYC!
    Great views and a chance to chill.
    Really a superb part of contemporary history.

    We waited to get the front seat of the tram. It was so worth it. The views are great. The ride is quick maybe 5 minutes. But we really enjoyed it. The tram held a lot more people then expected.

    I decided to book with the most recommended service for the airport transfers. I'm glad I did! On both times I was contacted well in advance of the agreed time and the drivers were waiting close by so we were able to depart without waiting. The cars (we used Maybach and Chevrolet) were excellent and the friendly drivers pointed out attractions and gave good tips for the holiday. Top notch service, thank you for that!

    Himanshi Agrawal with OurBus is amazing. She helped me quickly and with the greatest of ease. She's made me a loyal customer and now I will happily recommend using OurBus over all the other options 👍🏾

    Do not buy the metro card. Ours was so finicky and flimsy that it rarely worked. We asked attendants for help and were told we’d have to mail it in for a refund. We used the tap and go omny option which was much better. No issues at all. We ride it a lot, mostly red and orange lines. Most of it is clean and safe for the largest city in the US. I used google to map routes and saved them.

    King and Queen went over and above in their compassion and understanding when I requested my deposit be refunded as I had to cancel. There were many medical issues involved and I was unable to make my NY trip I give King & Queen exceptionally high marks and will definitely use their services in the near future.

    Excellent car service. I scheduled several trips with them for our visit to NYC. Drivers were courteous and on time. Cars are newer models and very clean. I will definitely use them again on our next trip to the city.

    My son had a day off from school so I took the day off from work and got us tickets to the Intrepid so he wasn't home all day staring at a screen. I never take the ferry across the river because the train or the tunnel (if driving) are much more convenient and cheaper. The downtown stop is a better stop closer to the action but the midtown stop is only good if you are going to Javitz or the Intrepid.

    The cost is too much, the journey is on a less frequent schedule than the train and the parking at Port Imperial is also too much.

    So yeah, if this is your first time or if you are a local showing someone the city, this is a nice journey. If you want in and out quickly, take a train.

    We are visitors who stayed in Jersey City and spent the weekend in NYC. I wanted to offer our specific feedback regarding PATH's SmartLink cards, as out-of-towners who visit NYC once in a great while.
    - SmartLink cards are much more expensive than the MetroCard cards used for NYC transit.
    - MetroCard works on PATH trains.
    - SmartLink does NOT work on NYC transit (MTA buses, NYC subway).
    - PATH has a very limited number of stops in NYC.
    As a visitor, you will likely use PATH twice a day, likely to land either at the WTC or at 33rd & Broadway, then, likely, you will walk hours because Manhattan is an awesomely walkable place, and, likely, you will wish you could take a bus back to that PATH station that is hours away.
    SmartLink is good for commuters, visitors should use MetroCard.

    This is the second time that I've used NYC Rich Limo, and the reason was that they were outstanding the 1st time. They didn't disappoint! Our driver met us at the airport (he was there early), took us to the 1st hotel in Westchester, picked us up there for the trip into Manhattan, and finally back to the airport when our vacation was over. Our driver, Alex, was always early, a great driver, and he made things easy. It doesn't get any better than that- kudos the NYC Rich Limo for their exceptional service.
