    Reliable, free and easy to grab a seat. You can see the highly over rated lady liberty. Sit on the right side of the boat going to staten island for that.

    We used the subway a lot, however it isn’t as easy as say, the Tube maps in London, to follow. Be aware…..I was scammed when I was buying a Metro Pass. I had just put my card in and a guy flew in and quickly said that was the wrong machine. He said i needed cash which i produced, meanwhile another guy bought a pass on the other machine that i had put my card in. Don’t let anyone help you, you can figure it out!!

    We stayed 10 days and used the ferries once a day. Great way to travel and see the skyline. Comfortable, on time, no delays (unlike the subway), friendly and helpful staff, you couldn't wish for more.
    $4 a two hour validity or $2.75 if you buy 10 tickets.

    We used NYC Perfect 3 times during our trip and they did a great job. On time. Kind. Knew how to get where we were going. Just a perfect job all 3 times. Donny was always available if I had a question. Very nicely done.

    We are visitors who stayed in Jersey City and spent the weekend in NYC. I wanted to offer our specific feedback regarding PATH's SmartLink cards, as out-of-towners who visit NYC once in a great while.
    - SmartLink cards are much more expensive than the MetroCard cards used for NYC transit.
    - MetroCard works on PATH trains.
    - SmartLink does NOT work on NYC transit (MTA buses, NYC subway).
    - PATH has a very limited number of stops in NYC.
    As a visitor, you will likely use PATH twice a day, likely to land either at the WTC or at 33rd & Broadway, then, likely, you will walk hours because Manhattan is an awesomely walkable place, and, likely, you will wish you could take a bus back to that PATH station that is hours away.
    SmartLink is good for commuters, visitors should use MetroCard.

    My family came to NY for holiday. We rented Jet sprinter van for city tour. The most comfortable car. It has TV, cooler for drinks, all you can imagine for luxury ride. The service was great.
    Mario was our driver and he took us to most tourists places. We enjoyed Hudson Yards, Central park, Bryant park.
    I want to say thanks to Sophia as well who helped us organize this tour.
    Highly recommended

    What more can I say other then HANDS DOWN UNBELIEVABLY AMAZING…. BONNIE & CLYDE…. YOU ROCK!!! 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️+
    These two work well together, great energy from hello. Total crowd pleasers!I instantly felt safe and at home from the first step on the coolest trolly Ive seen. I honestly couldn’t say I would have changed anything except I didn’t want it to end.
    If your looking for a great, safe, trip, with all accommodations you need (knowing this from other people I’ve spoken to on the trip during the day that we’re out of town…. I’m fortunately from the town 1 year so I didn’t need extra accommodations….this time atleast.. lol), this is it. You will have a blast I promise!
    I highly recommend them and will for sure do this again next season.
    Thank you for a great experience and wonderful memories!

    My son had a day off from school so I took the day off from work and got us tickets to the Intrepid so he wasn't home all day staring at a screen. I never take the ferry across the river because the train or the tunnel (if driving) are much more convenient and cheaper. The downtown stop is a better stop closer to the action but the midtown stop is only good if you are going to Javitz or the Intrepid.

    The cost is too much, the journey is on a less frequent schedule than the train and the parking at Port Imperial is also too much.

    So yeah, if this is your first time or if you are a local showing someone the city, this is a nice journey. If you want in and out quickly, take a train.

    We got a strecth limo tranfser to our hotel from LGA when we arrived in NY and it was a great start to our Big Apple experience. Our driver Maribel made contact as soon as we landed and we got picked up straight outside the baggage claim area. Great value and loved having everything included up front (tolls and tips). Definitely recommend them., our kids loved it!

    I did extensive research for private transportation between JFK airport to Midtown Manhattan before committing to Precision and I'm glad I did. All positive reviews for Precision are spot-on. The communication, service and attention to detail were all EXCEPTIONAL. Immediately at landing, I received a text from our chauffeur Abdul. He advised that he was already at the airport, make/model of vehicle and license plate number. He was easy to locate and he made our travel into Manhattan exceptionally smooth and friendly. On our departure date, Ismael text me that he was on-site. He was at the hotel early (no complaints there) and he made our travel back to JFK airport efficient with plenty of time to spare. If you're stuck wondering which private travel service to book, look no further than Precision.

    We chose to ride the buses on our trip. The electric buses are very nice with Wi-Fi and USB ports. Seating is more comfortable with more ergonomic curvature.

    This modern extension of the system had received a lot of publicity and it sure took a long time to build. So I was happy to ride it. Very crowded and much-used, so I guess it is much-needed. The stations are big and clean, but not well-decorated. Much deeper than other stations, so the escalators were very welcome.
