The Tour Guide Gil was excellent. Very knowledgeable and ready to help give suggestions. Manny drive great in the “crazy” New York traffic. The stops were great even though we had bad fog that hid Lady Liberty!
A very enjoyable, entertaining 6 hours

Fantastic 6 hours spent with Steve all around what you need to see in New York. The mini bus with convertible roof ( although the day that was in it meant the see through roof wasn’t retracted) was so comfortable and clean. At every stop we were offered rain ponchos and water. Steve is a New Yorker from Queens and has great wit, and above all great knowledge of his home town and it’s history. He looked after us so we’ll throughout the day, making sure we were well informed on where we were going, what we were going to see, and where to be at certain stops. All the stops were what you want to see in a bus tour of New York, Central Park, Rockefeller Centre, Empire Estate Building, Ground Zero Memorial site, Statue Of Liberty on the Statten Island ferry, and so much more in between. Steve kept us well entertained in between all the stops. Having used Big Bus tours and the like in big cities around the World, there’s no comparison, this tour is well worth the money and I’d highly recommend it.

Excellent and Worth the money! If you can, ask for, Brooklyn’s very own, Vinny as a tour guide. He is very knowledgeable about the history of the city, the architecture, the layout of the streets, the food, etc. and presents it all in a very fun and funny (but not inappropriate) way. Vinny’s driver/partner, Miguel, was awesome to. Very safe and didn’t drive in a way that made us motion sick. The bus was nice too. It had a see through roof that allowed for some great views and photos.

Steve was our tour guide and did an excellent job.
He was knowledgeable, humorous, and attentive.
Steve knew the history and the current happenings of the areas we covered. Learned a lot!
