We had a great time. The people who ran the Jitney and the winery were lovely. However, unfortunately we cannot participate in the entire event because the bus left without us. We were at the pick up location at 8:55 - be sure to be at the meeting point 15min before departure time or the bus will leave without you! The sign at the meeting point says "Gourmet Café", not "Gourmet Deli". Additionally, it would’ve been helpful to know we were riding the Jitney so we could look out for that specific bus versus the other coach buses we saw around the area. We decided to take the next bus (free of charge) to the second winery (which was not listed but we guessed) upon arrival of the second winery we were given wine for the tasting. One of the tour providers found us and apologized for all the confusion at pick up. He provided his cell phone number and was very nice. Since we arrived late we decided not to go back on the bus and stay on our own. Overall we had a wonderful time.

Here everything was just perfect. The arrival without problems due to a good description. Reception and care super friendly. Pilot so personable and explained everything. We also had great weather and were just thrilled!

I did not regret having traveled a few km to make this 30-minute flight. The flight over the Bronx, from Harlem to arrive in Manhattan is magnificent! The driver at the top. I advise.

It was a great experience! The staff at the airport were friendly and professional and the pilot made it great flying experience.

Very good guides and pilots who steered us steadily over NYC even though there was a lot of turbulence.
