I was the one to choose this event and I think my husband was just going along to keep me happy. We live in LA and see the tourist busses all the time, they do not look like our idea of fun. After a half hour, my husband looked at me and said...continued

We loved this tour and are still talking about all that we learned. Fred the owner/guide was terrific. There is a lot of walking. Not a ride around . We loved it.

Fred was very nice. He showed us as much as he possibly could in such a short period. I would pay more for this, but not knowing in advance, the price was awesome and well worth it. I am from Chicago and I have been on many tours. I trusted...continued

Have taken other tours but never had a guide that was so informative. A great afternoon with a bonus trip to the 9/11 memorial.

Our tour guide, Lance, was terrific. Both my husband and I enjoyed it very much. It was a good way to re-acquaint ourselves with NYC after not being here in over 10 years.

This was the best way to get acquainted with the city. We rode in an extremely comfortable bus, smaller than the large open top buses. It was easy to hop on and off at the many stops we made with our small group of about 20. The tour covered...continued
