Great city tour
Nov. 2021
Took this tour on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. It was my first time to NYC and I loved all that we saw on the tour. Our guide Mike was great...born and raised there and so knowledgeable. Our driver Jose was also a great guy. felt it was great value for the money spent. Thank you Mike and Jose for a great tour!!!

Tips, Tricks, and Towers of NYC
I HIGHLY recommend this tour. Rachel and Anthony the driver were absolutely fantastic. They really put a lot of effort into making sure you get the best info, photos, and tips on this tour. Anthony the driver was excellent! Made driving around NYC look like a breeze. Really good about slowing down for pics at the perfect time. Love it. Rachel is the best. Thanks to her we got to know so much about this impressive city. Also the tips she will give you are PRICELESS! Book this tour on your first day or two in town and get all the goods you need to know to save time and money. I feel like a true New Yorker thanks to Rachel. Saw all the best stuff and she would help us find and take the best pics. We got so much more out of this tour than expected. The bus was warm and comfy. It also had USB charging ports which I really appreciated and they provide water as well. Also, if your prompt getting back to the bus after stops, you may get a little extra, if there's time. If you are coming to NYC, BOOK IT (early in your trip)! Worth every single penny. Request Rachel.

Informative and fun!
We loved our tour with our guide Jim and our driver Manny. The tour took us to many of the places we had already decided we wanted to see. Jim kept the tour lively and interesting. The only downside was that because it was cold, we ate lunch at the Staten Island ferry terminal instead of the more outdoor dining area market. There was little to no seating there and no dining area available to us, and we were constantly panhandled while eating. Other than that, it was one of the best tours I’ve taken.

Staten Island Ferry lunch.
Nov. 2021
Everything about the NY in 1 Day was great except for ONE thing. One of the best things about NYC is the amazing and reasonable food that you can find all over the place, which is why I couldn’t believe that the tour’s lunch hour was …. the Staten Island Ferry terminal. Could there be a worse place to plan a lunch stop? The choices were Subway or a hotdog. It was a very cold day and there was no eateries within walking distance. Not even food trucks. So disappointing and unnecessary.

A MUST-DO for your NYC Visit!!
This was such an amazing experience and I’m so glad we did it! Rachel was our amazing tour guide and Juan was our driver—the man is a driving genius. He navigated the streets of NYC seamlessly and his timing was perfect every time we were headed to board for our next stop. Rachel’s expert and in-depth knowledge of SO many places, events, buildings, etc was incredible. I had read the reviews previously and many mentioned how great she was, so I was glad we got her for ours—but now I’m incredibly grateful we had her. There is so much more to this tour than the destinations mentioned in the description. The NY insider info and tips are super helpful! This is something someone should book anytime they visit the city but it would be especially helpful to book it at the beginning of a stay in NYC—the tips alone are wonderful knowledge to have. I would do it agin and I highly recommend it! The bus was super comfy and there are electrical outlets for your devices to charge them throughout the day. Water is provided as well as a mandatory restroom break and lunch. Wear comfy shoes because there is a fair amount of walking but not super-crazy. My step count for the entire day was around 8k (3 miles) and that was the entire day and not just the tour. Go ahead and book it—you won’t regret it. It will be a great experience!

Outstanding view of New York!
Nov. 2021
Juan was our bus driver and did a great job. Rachel was the guide and did an outstanding job! She knows her history inside and out and kept the entire trip interesting. She was well organized and helped us get some great pictures! She knew just the angles and times to get the pictures that would be better than others. She did not allow individuals in the group to distract her from giving a great tour to everyone else! Kudos to you, Rachel!

My wife and I had never been to New York and really enjoyed this tour. We are 57 and 61 but could definitely handle the walking and standing. If you have trouble navigating stairs or walking for longer distances (we probably had 8,000 steps??), this might not be for you.

Our kids, who live close, thought that they should now take the tour! You will learn a lot if you want to!

Excellent Tour!
Nov. 2021 • Friends
Loved the tour! Our guide, Rachel, was amazing. More than a tour…it was a learning experience on how the city developed. Her knowledge on every part of tour was amazing and she made sure we took pictures at the most memorable spots. Very highly recommend, especially if you can get on Rachel’s bus.
