This guided tour was top notch! The smaller, upscale, vehicle allowed for optimal comfort, prevented overcrowding, and allowed a more personalized and intimate experience. Steve was our Guide and Tony was our Driver. I cannot say enough positive things about these two. Their energy, knowledge, and punctuation were their greatest attributes. If you’re considering booking a guided tour, skip the big buses and support the smaller guys. Same city, same idea, better execution.

Hearing all about the unique things in New York City. I wish they would have included Harlem history and Coney Island. But overall a great experience.

Joey was an absolutely fantastic tour guide. In fact, I told him he could be a historian because he knew SO MUCH about the history of NYC. He made the trip fun and informative and we had a wonderful time. Gustavo was also an excellent bus driver, so my daughter and I were in good hands all around!
