Reviewed 6 December 2013

Spent 4 days in New York and decided to take the 9 hour tour of the city. It was fantastic value and we saw many of the main attractions we had planned to see during our stay. It was well organised and Tom our tour guide knew everything about all the sites we visited and answered all our questions. Our driver was brilliant and always on time to pick us up after each stop off. Advice to anyone going this time of year, wear lots of layers it was very cold and we especially felt it on Liberty Island, queues for the ferry were very long and you may have to wait in line for a ferry back, so thermals advised!! Great tour if you want to see lots of attractions without lots of walking, thoroughly recommended

I booked the 8 hour New York Shuttle Tour for Dec 1st. I will recommend it to EVERYONE. Our guide, Renny, was knowledgeable,entertaining and very caring. he took care of all on the tour and as a 75 year old, I saw everything and with his help, didn't miss a beat. You could never see everything in one day if you were on your own and learn all of the history and "insider info" that this tour and guide offer. This was my first trip to NYC and I booked the tour after my arrival. To experience the Empire State Building, The Statue of Liberty, Ellis island and the 911 Memorial as well as MANY other special places all in one day was phenomenal. My son recently moved to NY and I will make sure he tells all who visit to make this tour reservation for the first day in town. I'm sure that any guide this company hs is goor but Renny is a treasure. Also, we had lunch at Paesano's in Little Italy and the food and service were excellent and the cost VERY reasonable. With the entry tickets tickets included in this package, it may just be the best bargain in New York.

My 2 friends and I came to New York at the end of October. We pre booked this tour and we are so glad we did!! Jack our tour guide was amazing. We learnt so much about the city and covered so much. It was well worth it. We went to the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty and were fast tracked through the queues. Our visit to the Statue of Liberty came the day after Ellis Island re opened and it was very busy and the ferry was delayed. Our 9 hour tour turned into 11 hours, but I would gladly have spent more time on this tour. Fantastic!

Went on this tour when I visited New York earlier this month after a recommendation from a friend and I was not disappointed. Our tour guide Marc, was very knowledgable and showed us sights that we would not have seen if we had not gone on this tour. The Empire State Building was amazing and so was the Statue of Liberty. Brilliant tour definitely worth the money..highlight of my trip
