Great first timer tour!!

Without knowing where to start to explore NYC, we booked this tour and are very happy we did. Our guide "J" was very funny and informative. This tour gives you a glimpse into the many places to see, from the 9/11 memorial to Central Park.

Wrap up warm and enjoy the ride. Grand Central is substituted for boat trip and its an impressive site. Bus will have heaters. NYC copes well with snow.

I agree with everyone else. There are periods of walking, but they are short walks to see an attraction and then back on the bus. It really isn't a fast pace walk and if your Dad is somewhat active-you should be fine! Just... More
