Last weekend, while my wife and I were in NYC for a long weekend we booked the New York City Holiday Lights Motorcoach Sightseeing Tour. Our tour guide was Chris Lucas and driver was Frank. This was the first time we have ever taken a tour with a group and I just wanted to comment how satisfied we were with the service we received and how knowledgeable the tour guide was.
As you can imagine, setting in NYC Christmas traffic on 5th Avenue the Saturday two weeks before Christmas was not the highlight of the trip, but with Frank’s patience and Chris’ knowledge of the city the trip was very enjoyable. Having someone of Chris’ caliber live on the bus to fill-in during the waits rather than a headset and recording is definitely he way to go. I am sure we will follow-up with some of your future tours and packages in the future.

On November 26, 2011, my friends and I took the Holiday Light Tour in NYC. We had great expectations and knew before hand that the Rockefeller Center Tree would not light until the 30th. What we did not know is that alot of the other lights were not either. Perhaps rather than telling the passangers that these will be lit later, or that the Miniature Train displays no longer exsts, or the window displays aren't as good as last years, maybe, just maybe the tour should not start until NYC is ready to show off! We did enjoy what we did see, but we all felt disappointed in the end.

We went on tour to ground zero and statue of Liberty, We were going to cancel as we had a lot to do. Went on the tour, our tour guide Tony was funny, very knowledgeable and just a great guide. we also did not realize that if you go on your own you will have to wait hours in a huge line to see these attractions but if you go with a tour you will skip the lines and pretty much walk right in, A huge help when on vacation and time is a value.

We had a great tour of the 911 Memorial thanks to an exceptional guide who gave us many of the details and history behind the events both before and after the attack. It was definitely worth the price and will be a memory that will be with us for the years to come.

We were met by the "nicest" guy in the world....you know when you meet someone and can tell they havent a bad bone in their body - he was smiley the whole time and a real bonus to the trip - his attitude was superb.
He pointed out things that I would surley have missed if done the trip alone,he rushed us through some long queues and even made the subway FUN !!! Our tour guide was called Darly and made the trip special.
Ground Zero was emotional and we had enough time to ask questions and see what we had to do,sadly we didnt get to say a last good bye to him on out way to Ellis Island we got seperated but I want to personally thank Daryl and the whole team - you made our 4 day trip to NY amazing and it was the highlight of our holiday (went on to Florida for 11 days after)my youngest 11 year old kept up with the pace too and I would like to go again and this time take my mother as she would love the trip also.
A HUGE THANKS to the Company who organise it and a special thanks to the amazing Daryl - never change who you are - you are an angel from heaven xxx
