Loved it! We had a 2 day pass and did the north loop on day 1 and south loop day 2. the guides were really knowledgeable and we felt we learned a lot about New York. There were 2 negatives - why do you employ lots of Male ‘in your face’ ticket towtes? I’d read how good your tours were and was specifically looking for you. I would’ve appreciated a central location to go to or a member of your team assisting me at the stops instead of been hassled by your sales people. I Really didn’t like that and some of them were so in your face it was quite intimidating. Also, our ticket had a circle line boat trip included. Your recommendation on the ticket was to get there 30 minutes before the departure time at Pier 16. We actually got there 45 minutes earlier than the departure but because we’d not exchanged the voucher for tickets we had to join a huge line and missed the boat. if you’d explained that process we’d definitely have caught it.
The weather was extremely uncooperative, it rained off and on (mostly on) our entire tour...but Bobby was like a ray of sunshine, and an absolute wealth of knowledge! We were completely impressed with how easygoing yet completely focused he was during our tour. Five hours can be a lot, especially with inclement weather, but Bobby kept the tour interesting; some of his great personal stories were an added treat. Each of the food items we had were simply delicious--my granddaughter is a very picky eater, but she loved the pork dumplings; Bobby encouraged her to try them. While we didn't see as much as we would have had the weather been better, it was a thoroughly enjoyable tour; and Bobby was a most fantastic guide!
Provided you with great information in an entertaining way. The guides were informative well beyond the scope of telling what it was. I enjoy the historical perspective with a touch of humour added.
A must-see, whether as a tourist visiting New York for the first time, or a local. And if you live here, I’d imagine you’ll want to frequent this place as often as possible.
Could of went closer to attractions, you had to find your way to the tourist attractions, some guides gave directions others didn’t so had to find your way.
