A good fun theatrical attraction not designed to be informative so don't expect it to be and be prepared to join in to make the most of it! I'm saying no more so as not to spoil the fun for everyone. We enjoyed it and would recommend it.

I'd give it a rating of "Just OK". It was literally FREEZING with high winds. We were expected to arrive 15 minutes early and stand outside the bus until the exact time of the ride. The Ride staff couldn't have cared less how cold and uncomfortable we were. The show/experience was alright. It was ok, would not do again.

Disappointed to read this review, as its really an opinion about weather more than anything else. One would assume that if the weather is cold you would wear appropriate clothes. You walked around NYC in that weather, so why does waiting 15 minutes outside have such an impact on the score? Our staff waited outside just as long as you. Its not like we left you out in cold and they warmed up inside somewhere. Reviewing the weather always makes us question the substance of a review. Its very easy to prepare yourself for whatever the climate dictates. And its November not the middle of January, where cold weather could play a bigger role in overall experience.

This was a very interesting way to see New York and learn some history about it as well. The virtual reality parts were a plus and wished there was a little mote use of it! The tour guide was great! We would recommend this to our friends and family!

we absolutely loved The arise. Our 2 hosts were so funny and really kept us laughing and entertained on the 75 minute tour of NYC. I didn’t really know what to expect before we went on The Ride but were blown away by how fun it was!

This was a fun and entertaining show. One of the guides was very funny. The other was just ok. We had 5 girls so we really enjoyed the street performances and the song alongs. I wouldn’t recommend this for anyone who is looking for an informational tour. It is strictly for a laugh. If you are looking for a quiet experience this is not for you. If you have fun people with you then you will most likely enjoy it. Would like to see more street performers. Some of the reviews complained about the bus being late but hey, it is manhattan.

The tour itself is amazing and the guide lady is awesome. You get to learn about NY downtown history and experience it through virtual reality. We totally recommend it!
