This was very interesting. Our tour guide was J and the driver Anthony. J was excellent. He was funny, knew a lot of information and was taking pictures of everyone on the tour. I am glad we did the boat trip on that tour. I do not think we would have had time any other day that we were there. I have to say that this was the best day that we had in New York.

Rachael ( our tour guide) was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. She made the tour!. Our driver (sorry can’t remember his name) was very efficient, arrived quickly at our pick up areas and navigated the NY traffic beautifully. Traffic issues delayed our arrival and Adrian said they would hold the bus for a few minutes and they did. Now that’s customer service!!

I highly recommend this tour; 6 hours which includes time for lunch. Our tour guide, Gil, was fabulous; he is so knowledgeable about each site visited but, best of all, he includes so much interesting anecdotal information about each neighborhood, etc. We highly recommend Gil. He is a five star plus tour guide!
