Rachel was our guide with Manny as the bus driver. Both were phenomenal! Wow. Rachel was a great host - she was warm, inviting, organized, kept the visitors in close contact so that no one "strayed" away. She basically provided us with a "Brain infusion" of all things Manhattan. Want to be a New Yorker, know cool history facts, know architecture differences, understand the grid, understand the harbors, understand ...well - almost EVERYTHING - then ask for Rachel as your guide. My husband, daughter, and I left with our brains infused with information. I feel so much more knowledgeable now. Manny, the driver, was always right around the corner - and able to meet us rapidly for pickup. Plus it was FREEZING outside - but they kept things moving the entire time. A great experience and one we HIGHLY recommend.

The “New York in One Day Guided Sightseeing Tour” covered much real estate, in a very nice “closed top luxury bus”, with an excellent, experienced, NYC driver (Anthony). The tour was booked to share with my daughter and granddaughter the many NYC sights & glad we saw them.
However, we had the most curious tour guide ever, leading our tour (Brooklyn Jim). No doubt as a licensed tour guide, he knows the city, but he spent so much time on banal jokes that it felt like he was auditioning for a grade C comedy club. Many historic sights were passed with nary a word while he was working on a laugh from the guy next to him on the bus. And no, seeing photos of your family & home on your cellphone are not interesting to anyone 3’ beyond you. I began point out numerous sights along the way, ignored by Brooklyn Jim. Boredom of the same sights day after day must have set in for him.
It’s a crapshoot as to who you get for a tour guide. Management should jump on his bus to witness his foolish guiding and then give direction as to how an excellent guide conducts tours. A+ on the bus & driver. C for the tour guide!

My husband and I enjoyed it so much. We also enjoyed the get out and walk the city part as well. We recommend the tour to anyone visiting. ❤️🗽🌆

Great value, informative and enjoyable.

This is an approx 6 hour tour where you will visit many of the must see sights and with the knowledge of a guide.

Brendan was fantastic. At almost every block he gave us facts, history and local speculation about buildings and areas of Manhattan.

We spent time on the bus and off to learn about the areas of NY. Facts at every turn and way better than trying to make your own way and read a guide book!

Even the rain couldn’t dampen our enthusiasm.

The memorials to 9/11 were the highlight for us, so poignant and a perfect reminder of the lives lost.

The glass top bus is definitely worth it. The views of the skyline are incredible as you drive along.

We all agreed this was the perfect start to our visit. A must for anyone coming to NY!

Perfect way to hit the highlights and learn some history along the way. The combination of riding and walking is great. The 6 hours go by in a flash. Our tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable, and our driver didn’t scare me half to death. 👍👍

The best guided bus tour I ever had. I would do it again. I highly recommend it. Great value for your money. Tour guide was very knowledgeable. She was fantastic. You will get the real experience of NYC. You will learn about the history of NYC and see many sites. My only recommendation for improvement is to not have the tour guides block the tv screen when they're talking.
