Good information and stops. It was slightly raining so you could not see out of the windows on the top. They do not have wipers or heat on the upper deck and you could not see out the windows after the rain so that was disappointing. If the weather was nicer it would have been a better tour. Definitely worth doing either way.

Very easy since the ticket is valid for one day and you can plan the day however you want. For the boat trip, you still had to exchange your ticket at the cash register. I find it a bit redundant. Would be more convenient if you can have your ticket scanned directly at the entrance. For the rest beautiful cruise that we had done during sunset. Some more explanation during the trip would be nice and actually they should do speed up to the Statue of Liberty, which would form a better healed. But definitely recommended.

The HoHo Tour was great. The explanations on the bus were very interesting. We drove the first lap completely and then only got out at the Eiffel Tower. The buses are quite full in places and if you plan to sit on top, I would also recommend driving a complete lap first, because otherwise you don’t have that much of a chance. The boat tour was very relaxed and the explanations were good. The only thing that wasn't so nice was that you had to queue at the ticket counter to get tickets and it was very full. And that you are not told that when you get access from Get your Guide. It's at the bottom of the printout, but who reads that anyway :-)
