Terrific tour
, Sep 2021
I had visited some of the places before, since my stay in NYC is for four months. But without the guidance of a brilliant and friendly guide like Rachel you can't really know the city. I now see a very different New York City when I walk these streets.
My first trip to NYC
, Sep 2021
Rachel was an absolute Rock Star! She is so knowledgeable and pleasant. We saw so many awesome places. Am recommending her and your tour operators to friends and family!
NY sampler

Super knowledgeable, considerate of time, and just an overall really great experience! Perfect little “taster” to what NY has to offer.
Fantastic tour/guide/driver
, Sep 2021
Had an amazing time on this tour. Saw everything we wanted to see and then some! Rachel was a wealth of knowledge, very personable, took the time to learn a little about each passenger and make sure everyones individual needs were met, The driver Jose’ could probably make his way around the city with his eyes closed he was that great, the itinerary appeared rushed but we had more than enough time at each stop for pictures and an in-depth history lesson. I would highly recommend this tour with Rachel and Jose’!!! Five stars for sure!
Fun and Informative
, Sep 2021
Rachel was awesome! Tour was informative and fun! There is no way that we could have seen all that we did on a one day trip without the tour.
Tim and Roy are the best!
, Sep 2021
Tim was an amazing tour guide- he made sure that everyone on the tour was comfortable and had plenty of bathroom breaks planned into the tour- we only realized how valuable these bathroom spots were the following day when our exploring on our own! He knows so much about the city and has great stories! Roy was a great driver, he was polite and kept us on schedule
Best Way to See and Hear about NY
, Sep 2021
Positively, without a doubt the Best way to see NY and hear the History behind each place. Our Tour Guide was Michael. Michael was born and raised in NY and he was absolutely a knowledgeable and informative Guide. We are Recommending the Tour for everyone.
See a glimpse of NYC
, Sep 2021
It was a nice overview of New York City in a limited amount of time. Practically speaking, well done.
Fun but tiring
, Sep 2021
Loved the ferry to Staten Island and the 9/11 memorial. We had fun but expected the tour to be 9 to 3. It ended up being 9 to 4:45. We did hit traffic due to the UN week but we also had some delays due to other passengers. I was not thrilled that they said departure was in one area and turned out to be another. No one called or texted us to let us know. And other groups were with us looking for the tour as well. It was a very very long day and very tiring but we did get some good sightseeing in.
