My boyfriend and I loved this tour! Our tour guide was amazing and so knowledgeable. We got to see New York in one day during our short weekend stay.

Our guide, Dina, and our driver, Gerardo, were great. Dina was extremely knowledgeable. She gave us tons of information about the history of NYC and other pearls of wisdom. Gerardo did his best to negotiate the impossible traffic of a beautiful Saturday afternoon. However, they managed to get us to all the attractions, even if the tour ran late. Then Dina helped us get to our next event despite the late hour! This tour is a perfect introduction to NYC. This was my second Viator tour in NYC and it did not disappoint.

This is the best way to see NYC. I only had one day to visit Manhattan while I was in NY and I'm so glad that I chose to book with Viator. I had originally thought of doing one of those hop on hop off double decker tours, but after reading some of their reviews about not being able to find a bus that wasn't full I decided to go with Viator. Best decision that I could have made. It was extremely hot when I went and let me tell you after we would get off the bus to walk and look at something, it was a blessing to get back on an air conditioned bus, and not in the open heat of a double decker bus. The bus is a small bus that holds about 30 people. When I went we had 26 people. I really liked that because you can hear everything that the guide tells you. Now about my tour guide. Rhonda (hope I spelled it right) was incredible. She was so friendly and really knows a lot about the history of NY. I mean this lady is passionate about her city and it shows. You get off the bus quite a few times. The whole time you are riding the bus she is pointing out history and did you know facts. Also when you get off the bus Rhonda carried an umbrella to help you see where she is, and she always counted everyone when we got back on the bus. She was very responsible. I felt 100% safe the whole time in NYC. One thing that I would like to make clear that isn't clear about the tour or in any of the other reviews I saw. On the Viator site it says the tour takes about 6 hours and that lunch isn't included. You DO get to eat lunch, it is just not included in the price. What they do is park the bus for an hour near several places you can eat, and you meet back in an hour. They gave 3 recommendations and all of them were very close to the bus (like directly across the street from the bus, or right beside the bus). Also the places to eat were very reasonably priced. I got two hot dogs and a drink for $6. You can't beat that in NYC. I won't comment on the areas the tour covers because you can see all that on the site. I will say that the places the bus stops gives you plenty of time to view and take pictures of the areas. Finally I will speak on the value of the tour. In my opinion, it is a superb value at $89 for one person (which is the tour I took). To be honest this is the first review I've ever been excited to write about. In closing I will say it is nice to tip the host when the tour is over. It is how the host makes a living. I'm telling you this is THE Tour of NYC.

Mike is a very knowledgable guide, with heaps of stories that only a local would know. His commentary was entertaining. I recommend taking this tour on your first day in New York, so you can then plan the rest of your visit.

There was a parade going on the day we went, which made things feel a bit rushed. Also the buses we were on were not what i would consider luxury as the advertisement stated. The tour guide was good and knowledgeable but a little more time should be spent at some of the stops. (911)
