The tour was excellent because Rachel does a great job of taking care of you (but not suffocating you).

Over the years I have seen New York in bits and pieces. But this tour was informative and showed me places that I would have never seen myself and missed it. My cousin is visiting me from India and I had to show her the New York city in just one day. This tour did a great job to serve that purpose. It will be unfair if I don't mention about our tour guide Dana. She was excellent.

Rachel and Arliss gave us a superb tour of New York City making sure we got the best pictures, stories, and food along the way. This tour allowed us to cover a lot of the city in one day maximizing our short time in the city!!

Our guide, Tim and driver, Tony were excellent. The trip hit the highlights of Manhattan quickly but with enough time to enjoy them. Tim was funny but knowledgeable and kept the energy levels high. Well done!

Ok, seeing everything in New York is an impossibility, but Gill and Roy gave it a great shot. From Broadway to Times Square, from the Rockefeller Center to the 911 Memorial, and culminating in a boat ride down the Hudson and around the Statue of Liberty, everyone on board our beautiful new bus were treated to a tantalizing glimpse of the sights and people of NYC. My daughter and I will be back to see more of this wonderful city. Thanks!!
