This was the perfect tour for a rainy day in NYC! Our guide, Tyler, had the best information to share with us. This is a great way to see a lot of the city for first time guests, and you can decide where you want to go back and spend more time!

Enjoyed the combination of walking, bus tour and ferry ride. Our tour guide Joe was excellent. Restroom stops and lunch stop was timed perfectly. Group was a small size which allowed for questions. Great tour!

Louis was our host. He did a great job of showing us the sites and taking an interest in us. We had a lovely ride and conversation.

Our guide, Tyler, was entertaining and knowledgable! So glad we did this tour - we learned so much about New York!

If you can do just one activity, this is a GREAT choice! Super informative for an overall introduction to NYC.
