Didn’t know what to expect but it was fantastic from start to finish and a very entertaining hour and half. Great for first timers like us in NY. Our guide a lady sorry cannot remember her name was so entertaining and had lots to tell us all about New York. She was friendly from start to finish. Thank you.

A huge disappointment. The bus arrived on time but from thereon the experience went from bad to worse. We were kept waiting outside the bus for 25 minutes in the freezing temperatures while the staff tried in vain to get the sound system working. In the end they let us onboard but still could not get the sound to work. So can't really comment on what the experience would have been as it just turned into an average short tour. Seriously not impressed. We were not even given the option of a refund. Very, Very disappointed

This trip was new too me and decided to try it. My scheduled slot was changed without being given a choice. I did book this trip well in advance as part of a planned trip. A phone call from the ride confirmed my time. Once again it was part of a 60th birthday trip so luckily I was able to make this change. However the bus was less than half full. The tour guide was very good but her enthusiasm was lost on the small numbers on board. Felt the Ride didn't read the real purpose of my booking trip and due to the small numbers on the bus the trip lacked the atmosphere I hope my husband would experience. No doubt if I would have got my original booking on a full bus the purpose of the trip would have been realised. Really disappointed with the insensitivity.
