    Museum on 55th and 8th. More of an activity than a museum. Entrance is on 8th Avenue. Worth a visit. Also good for kids to visit.

    We chartered the boat that held up to 12 passengers and had a memorable trip! Bjoern and our driver/captain/tour guide Shawn were both super easy to work with and very accommodating. Our group ranged from 8-87 yrs old and everyone had a great time!! It was the highlight of the weekend! Don’t miss out!!

    We truly had an amazing experience and if you let Captain David really being a Captain, you will switch off the engine and let him do what he does best..... sail in some of the most affascinating waters in the world! It's really a magical experience and doing at sunset was just perfect! I would highly recommend it to anybody, I think that 5 people is the truly most comfortable that you can be, but even 6 or more could be done!

    Captain Eric's boat is absolutely stunning!! My team and I had a wonderful time with Eric as we shot an editorial on his yacht. He was an amazing host and was a joy to work with. We hope to come back soon for fun as opposed to for work. Highly recommend!!

    The owner of TEP is extremely helpful, caring and well organised. This was clearly shown in how the trip ran, 37 nations during Covid is not ordinary feat. Everything ran safely and smoothly, and enabled all of us to have the trip of a lifetime.

    What an experience. The highlight of our vacation to Chicago, Vegas and New York. Sublime. Dave is such an awesome, personable guy. His passion is infectious.. The food will be spoken about for a long time, the memories will last forever.
    I will be bringing the family for a tour next time we’re in town. Cannot recommend highly enough.
    Thank you Dave for making our trip!

    The private sail with my family was fantastic! The boat is beautiful and Ian was the perfect captain. He was so knowledgeable and was able to answer all of our questions as we sailed along the rivers. He gave us the fascinating history for so many sights as we passed by them.

    The most jaw-dropping sight was sailing by The Statue of Liberty. The island had closed to tourists for the day so we had the unique experience of sailing by the island without anyone else around. It was quiet, serene and magical to view Lady Liberty all by ourselves.

    I forgot to let Ian know ahead of time that my mom used a walker due to a recent knee injury. Ian knew exactly what to do to help her board and exit the boat comfortably.

    We're hoping to be back in NYC with other family members in the fall. Sailing again with Ian will be our first stop!

    Excellent value for money, personal service and insider knowledge made for a great day in the various areas of Brooklyn. We sampled and learnt about food and cultures we would not have been able to discover on our own and came away with full bellies and an appreciation of NY beyond Manhattan. It was also a bonus to see locations featured in various films and tv series.
    We would definitely book on another of Ziggy’s tours on a return visit to New York.

    An incredible experience, and we were shocked and surprised by each and every segment. I thought I had seen them all until I had the Dan White experience. Highly recommended!

    The room we did was playground. It was very fun and took a lot of teamwork. The game guide, Sammy, was great!

    If you are visiting or live in NYC, this performance is so worthwhile! It was a truly amazing show and I plan to see it again. Made for a wonderful Father’s Day gift too.

    Visited here last week (April 2022) with 5 other friends and it was the first ever escape room for 2 members of our group. We completed QUARANTINE & overall I had an joyful experience. However, I felt the room was a little small for 6 people and some of the puzzles were a bit confusing. Staff were friendly and good value for money, would return.

    Came to NYC for a girls weekend, and we needed some entertainment for Saturday morning. This tour did not disappoint! Our tour guide, Kristina, was hilarious and engaging and she did a fabulous job of keeping us amused and engaged. We learned some really weird facts about various artifacts and exhibits! I would absolutely take another Museum Hack tour in the future - highly recommend!

    We had the lovely Peter Farr drive us on a fab tour of NY.He was a joy to have as our chaperone and was spot on with his knowledge on the history of NY.This made our short trip so much better as most attractions were closed because of virus panic.We will do this again on next visit.
    Thanks again Peter for great drive.
