      Disappointing New York
      4th visit. Last one February 2020. Was always exciting busy and clean. This time the smell of cannabis everywhere. JFK,subway,shops,streets etc. Then discovered weed shops legalised and everywhere. Plus streets filthy and Times Square a tip. Homeless everywhere and whilst leaving Penn station and man lying with a needle in his arm. Illegal immigrants was always a problem but this time large groups of young men everywhere. Also speaking a language I can only assume to be from Africa. Very intimidating and frightening.Added to this e-bikes everywhere and travelling at great speed. Plus the expense. Watch out for add on taxes plus tip. At terminal 7 we got 2 glasses of Sauvignon blanc $52 plus tax plus tip $70! We will not be back to a once fabulous city.

      Must Do!!
      This is a must do whether it is your first or 31st trip to New York! We had this tour recommended to us by a friend and then another friend, so of course we booked it! Ease of booking, text reminders kept us on track. The schedule was seamless. The stops were perfect - timing was perfect - but the biggest plus was our tour guide, “Brooklyn Jim”! He was the absolute best. Half the time you couldn’t tell whether his stories were true or not, but they were 100% entertaining. We met fun people from Nashville to Canada and would definitely recommend this tour again!

      Great way to cover a lot of New York in comfort
      We had the best time on this tour! Comfortable bus, informative and friendly tour guide, great driver. Postcard Tim pivoted quickly when a couple regular stops were closed for weather and we didn’t miss out at all! I would do the tour again.

      Amazing experience!!!
      Massive shoutout to Postcard Tim and Manny! We took the nighttime glass bus tour and thoroughly enjoyed our time. Tim cannot be faulted, he took us to all the iconic spots in NYC and had a wealth of knowledge on the city. I would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone, we also saw some hidden gems of the city that we would never have known about if it wasn’t for Tim.

      Defo add to your visit list of New York.
      We had Rachel & Juan our driver. There are certain things you would expect from expert a guide. Knowledge defo up there but Rachel gives you everything. She cares & goes the extra mile to make sure we got the best experience. We are in New York for 7days & Rachel gave us more than guide. She has helped us with restaurants, subway advice, locations & more. Defo 5 out of 5 from the Slater Family from the UK, who went on the guided tour 28th Dec 2023 on the 10am trip.

      Private Van Tour NYC 4 hours
      We had an awesome 4 hour private tour with our guide, Dana, and driver, Manny! They were both very friendly and extremely knowledgable. This tour was an excellent way to get a quick, thorough overview of the city and included stops for pictures and short walking conversations at Central Park and the 9/11 Memorial. It was well worth the price for the intimacy of the tour. Absolutely 5/5 Stars!

      Great way to see New York.
      Excellent tour with a great choice of iconic sites covered. Gil was a world class tour guide, ludicrously knowledgeable, very friendly & managed the group brilliantly. It would have been nice to have had more stops, rather than just driving by some iconic sites, but l would absolutely recommend this tour.

      A great introduction to the Big Apple.
      We opted for the private tour with our friends who had never been to Manhattan. While more expensive, it was no less than the price of a skiing lift ticket for the day and a fair price to pay for a full day of private entertainment. We had Lyonel as our tour guide. He was extremely accommodating, knowledgeable, and friendly.

      The tour was great, but what made it outstanding was our guide, his name is Gil. He was such a wealth of knowledge, went out of his way to help people find certain restaurants, made recommendation. He is so good at his job!

      We are so pleased we decided on this tour! The small van made it more personalized. The glass ceiling made it easy to see everything. Even though it rained, they were prepared and had ponchos for us. Gil, our guide, was outstanding, knowledgeable, friendly, and fun! Worth the money and time.

      The Guide was such a funny guy and he entertained us through the entire day! Such a gun experience! The only negative was that if you were sitting in the back of the bus you couldn't really hear the guide in the front because he didn't have a microphone. Also he didn't count us in, so if you were the last one out of the bus you'd be left behind and the grup had already moved along to another street.

    Planned this tour when my brother and his wife visited NY for 1st time It was perfect introduction to the city, the highlights over Manhattan. I enjoyed it myself even after several visits to NY I learned a lot The guide "J" Alan was fantastic, extremely knowledgeable had so many anecdotes I recommend the tour despite the price. I had a very bad experience with the Hop on Hop off bus tour in the past so this was perfect

Not only was our tour fantastic and informative, Gil gave us some great pointers while in NY. Tour bus was nice and clean (not your open air buses you see all over NY) Would highly recommend this tour

    Very comfortable and luxurious bus taking us expertly from sight to sight with stops at Central Park, 9/11 Memorial and 55 Fulton Market for lunch. Due to traffic on the day of our tour we weren’t able to stop at the Rockefeller Center; but did drive by and that was more than suitable.
    This tour allowed us to briefly sample a number of key sights all in one day and was a great starting point for our trip to New York so then we knew what other sights we wanted to see on our own.
    We enjoyed the Hornblower boat cruise with breathtaking views of the New York skyline and seeing the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island from the water, although no reserved seating for the tour group – need to join the line along with everyone else and then hope you get a good spot on the boat.
    I would recommend this tour as you cover more ground than you possibly could on your own and ticks some sights of your Must Do list in the comfort of a luxury air conditioned bus.

    We enjoyed our bus tour, but we were VERY disappointed that there was no boat ride, as advertised. I see now on this site that it's listed as only April-Dec 31, but we do not remember that from when we booked via CheapTickets.com. The view of the Statue of Liberty from the shore (on non-boat months) is very disappointing. I feel like we did not get what we paid for.

    That being said, our guide, Rachel, was nice. Very scripted, not a lot of time to ask questions but she gave LOTS of info. This would be a great starter tour for those who are staying the city for 1-2 weeks and don't have any idea where they want to visit. It's not a lot of time to explore anything, most stops were just 15 minutes. But we got pictures of some cool landmarks.

    This was our first time in New York and so we wanted to book a tour that would allow us to see as much as possible, with a knowledgable tour guide to explain the sights. We were not disappointed!

    We booked the open air/glass roof mini bus and would thoroughly recommend, it allows you so see so much more of the amazing skyline!

    The itinerary had to change due to there being a parade on the day we booked, so lots of road closures. They handled this really well, changing up the route and giving us the opportunity to visit Highline Park and Chelsea Market instead!

    A really enjoyable trip and a great way to see lots of the most famous sights all in one day!

    I’ve been to NYC quite a few times, but it was my husbands first trip, and since it was just a 3 day stay we decided to do a tour to make the most of our time in the city. We had such a great experience! Our tour guide, Buster Freeze, was a delight!! Born in Londen but a true New Yorker at heart, he was an endless book of knowledge and adoration for the city and the people. The tour hit most of the major landmarks, with short stops at places like Central Park, Rockefeller Center and the World Trade Center. By taking the bus, we were able to cover so much of Manhattan in such a short time. We took the Ferry to Staten Island, which really gives you a “true New York feel” just being among the commuters, and it gives you a pretty sweet shot of the Statue of Liberty. Our driver, Izzy, was cool + calm, and if you’ve ever been in a car in NYC can you even imagine driving a bus? No, thanks. But, I felt safe the whole trip with him behind the wheel.
    Long story short: I ABSOLUTELY recommend spending the $100ish bucks to to take this tour, and if you do it near the beginning of your trip it’ll give you loads of help planning what you want to do next.

    We had a tour booked with USA Guided Tours and we didn’t know what to expect as you hear many stories of lack of knowledge, to many stops, not enough time and no personality of the tour guide. We were so pleased and had a fabulous time with our tour guide Gil who was without a shadow of a doubt the best tour guide we have ever had on any tour. He was knowledgeable, keen to take questions, very humorous and generous. We were guided on a fabulous journey in extreme comfort on board a private bus, Gil was engaging from the off. He took us to all the places we were eager to see and gave us all the information we could ever have needed. When we were on the way to that Statue of Liberty 🗽 Gil offered to take pictures of all the people on the tour and again this was done at the John Lennon Memorial in Central Park. We also stopped for lunch in Little Italy 🇮🇹 (followed by Dunkin Donuts 🍩) again Gil knew all the places to get a bite to eat, we didn’t feel rushed through lunch which was again brilliant. If you are interested in doing a tour of NYC in a day then I would without a shadow of doubt recommend booking through this tour operator and hopefully you will get Gil as your guide, you won’t be disappointed in any way.

    Rachel our guide, was very professional and fun. The day went quickly and we saw or had pointed out to us all the main highlights of NY. Rachel was a font of knowledge imparting stories of the history of different sites and buildings.
    The only disappointment seemed to be the lack of a trip to see Lady Liberty up close as it couldn’t be worked into our schedule which was unfortunate as I’ve read on here a review that another tour on the same day did have the boat tour.
    Rachel thank you, you were brilliant and your sidekick, the driver Anthony, was very good getting to stop where we needed to which in NY is a little tricky!

    From welcoming on Board, to departing and arriving back to the city centre the tour is something I would recommend to anyone who would like to visit what NYC had to offer in a quick tour

    Our guide (Gil) was so friendly, courteous and had an incredible in-depth knowledge of the city and history.

    From visiting the rockfella centre Xmas tree, to walk at the Central Park, to visiting the Liberty statue, WTC, valuable info of the city - the tour was just top notch, a def value for money and highly recommended.

    Only feedback is to increase the lunch break from 30 mins to 45 mins, the restaurants are so busy that you would end up waiting and hurrying up for your breakie (tough I understand it’s a rush rush on the clock tour). Lol.

    I had Jimmy (Brooklyn) and AnTONY (driver) and this was a great day. Saw all the sights and then went back later to explore on my own. Jimmy loves his city with a well earned cynicism and humour that had the guests laughing all day. He was very knowledgeable and made sure everyone on the tour was enjoying themselves.

    The bus was clean and they had plenty of free water. There was a screen at the front of the bus so you could view 360 degrees as you drove in air conditioned bus. Plenty of stops to get out and walk around.

    This may appear a bit more expensive than some of the other tours but I thought it was well worth it. My thoughts were solidified later in the evening when I heard another company guide telling a Dad with some tired children the next hop on was an hour wait in the heat......

    Great tour.
