The Crew is very helpful, Our Guides were true New Yonkers' and told us the good, the bad and the great. We learned a lot about New York City.

the best - a great way to get a good overview of the city and to see so many things in a short amount of time -- we took all the tours - up town - down town - midtown - boat trip to the statue of liberty and around the island.

The weather was not the greatest so it was nice to be able to spend the day on the buses riding all over the city. I went to places I would not have been able to cover walking. Makes me look forward to a longer trip next time. There was no time for hopping on and off and still seeing the large amount of the city that these tours cover. One needs more time and in the future I plan on more time and spending one day alone on the downtown loop,
