Absolutely terrific from start to finish. It was like seeing a show but on wheels. The tour guides are very funny like comedians. I recommend this for everyone.

I was surprised how much fun I had! Interactive how?, I thought. The folks’ work hard to make sure you have a good time. With that said, I felt it was overpriced. If the trip was longer, iwould have felt I got my money’s worth.

Loved the Ride, but would have liked to been taken past the Rockefeller Center and store windows since it was the Holiday edition. Host and Hostess were very funny and actors on the streets were amazing.

I took The Ride with my family including four kids ages 17,15,13 and 9. Everyone loved it and had a blast. What a great and entertaining way to see the city. I would recommend it to anyone coming into the city.
