I had to take my siblings to a tour. Since I had a nice experience with the take tour previously, I thought of booking with the take tour again. We had a different tour guide than before. For the price of $8, you could not say no. This does not include the fee for the tour guide which is $10 per person plus the admission to each of the attractions. Even there were cons, it is worth the price. Cons: pick-up time was late (should be 7:30am then was moved to 7:50am then was move to 8:10am), and we have to walk three blocks to ride our mini bus. Pick-up point at 47 Chrystie, but we had to walk 3 blocks (I forgot the name of the street). Previously, we were pick-up at the right pick-up point. There was another person who pick-up us which I was not informed. Just set your mind that it will never be on time, and that you have to walk. With this, you will make it as one of your experiences joining a tour. It was a rainy day, we did not had a chance to get down for the â€śBullâ€ť picture taking. On the other hand, we had time for the one World Trade Center, the Oculus, and the ground zero. We have finished early as it was expected. We finished at 2pm. I thought the time will be extended for the Madam Tussaud, but it was not. The Pros: great communication with the tour guide. Kevin texted me a day before our tour. Also, texted me that he will be late. He is a great tour guide. He explained in detail for each of the attractions. To join the tour, you can just choose two attractions, and pay the $10 per person. Just like what we did, you will be finished by 2pm. We went from Chinatown, go around Wall Street, pass-by Trinity church( we did not go down coz it was raining). The difference with my previous experience, there was a tour guide walking with us (stopped at trinity church). This time, there was no tour guide going down with us to tour around the Wall Street. I wondered, maybe because of the price??? If you want with a one on one tour guide, maybe asked a representative before booking. I were not particular with this because Wall Street is not my priority. Kevin is the tour guide and a driver. The other attractions you donâ€™t really need a tour guide to be with you. Over-all, the trip run smoothly.
Had a wonderful tour experience. Started at the stated time. The guide,Kevin,gave a detailed commentary on the various places. The Empire State and Metropolitan Museum was dropped but that gave enough time to see the others. The operator takes you to the various sites and provides the tickets. You are on your own once there which is fine. Not being herded was great. Definitely an economical way to see New York.
If you are on a short stay and want to see and learn more about the city then you will on your own. This is the tour to take. 5 stars, 2 thumbs up and more. I'm sure all the tour guide are good but Trey (our guide I recommend) was the man. Funny, friendly, knowledgeable and knows the killer good spots.
If you visit NY I highly recommend! I will do this tour again next time and make sure anyone I know who visits, does too. Thank you Trey.
If you want to see NYC as New Yorkers do and maybe learn a little something about it as well, this is for you. Not just the touristy stuff. We really enjoyed hanging with Nathan and the rest of our group as we saw NYC from Wall Street up to Central Park. It was awesome and can't recommend it enough! He even gave us recommendations on good places to eat. Thanks Nathan!
We are so happy that we booked the NYC in a Day tour with Jeanette! We covered so much more ground and learned so much about NYC that we never would have discovered on our own. We learned how to use the subway as well as tourist traps to avoid. Jeanette willingly answered any questions we had and gave us so much useful information. She was an awesome storyteller and we were always entertained by her information and knowledge. I highly recommend this tour!
We recommend to everyone who wants to really see NYC. Ask for Trey! Whether your interest is in architecture, history, or the cultures that make up NY, this is the tour you want to book. Trey did a great job of tailoring the tour to us. We took our kids (9 & 13) and they enjoyed it too!
Superlative! One of the best tours I have EVER experienced--TAKE THIS TOUR!!!
Growing up in Philly, I have been to NYC many times. I learned more on this trip than all of those trips combined! I was travelling with my cousin from Germany and was looking for a stress free tour where she could see as much could and this surely delivered.
Highly, highly recommended. I will never forget Tyler's stories, bubbly personality. and her love for "MS BBQ"- Burroughs that make up NYC--Manhattan, Staten Island, Brooklyn, Bronx and Queens. Just fantastic. I would do this first when arriving in NYC as an overview, allowing return to places of interest.
Recent reviews have gone into detail of this excellent tour. I can only add a few comments that might help people decide. Firstly our guide, Tim Douglas is a totally dedicated New Yorker and spoke with passion about his city. He was also a mine of information - so much so he didn't have time to tell us all he wanted. We really needed a tour like this because we had only one clear day to see things, and it didn't disappoint.
We took the day tour with Tyler. She was very knowledgeable and gave many excellent tips. The tour was informative and well planned out. Was able to see so many more attractions than if we had tried to see them on our own!
We are so glad we did this tour on our first day in NY, it gave a nice brief overview of all the great sites in Manhattan. It would have taken us way longer and might have costed more money if we were to organize the tour on our own. Definitely worth the money.
Great way to see the highlights of NYC! I was travelling with both my mom and teenage son, and everyone enjoyed the tour. Our guide, Rachel, was very informative and gave us tips for the rest of our trip.
We had two full days in New York before our cruise. I had visited New York 20 years ago, it was my husband's first visit. We therefore booked this tour as it covered the major landmarks and also gave a good insight into the layout of the city and excellent information for us novice tourists. The day we did the tour it was wet and windy so we felt grateful to be on a comfortable bus touring the city. Despite the rain we did get off the bus at the iconic landmarks for photographs. We also had an excellent lunch stop at a food market offering loads of choices of food and was good value. recommend!
I've been to NYC several times, this time with my teenager daughters. I wanted them to have a good insight of the city. Out tour guide Rachel did an excellent job. Informative, convenient being driven around with a small bus. Great value for your money.
Our tour guide Tim was excellent. We were able to see all the major sites in the city in a short period of time. We enjoyed the ability to see them by both land and water. They knew all the right places to take to get great views and had many interesting facts to share.
We had only one day in New York City and wanted to make the most of our time. This tour exceeded our expectations. Tour guide Jay was very knowledgeable and made it very interesting and entertaining. He was excellent at navigating street crossings - keeping the group together - and always making sure we were at the right spots for photos. If I could change one thing it would be to allow just a little extra time for lunch - even 15 more minutes would have made it a little less rushed. Overall though, I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see a New York City in a short amount of time.
We decided to spend our first day in NYC on this tour to give us a good overview of the city. Tyler was an excellent guide. She was enthusiastic and friendly and was able to share her knowledge in such an interesting way that the tour seemed to fly by. I was a little concerned that we would be spending hours on the bus but we got off regularly to look at things more closely and to take photos. I would recommend this tour to anyone on their first visit to the city.
Tour guide was great. From start to finish this is what you would expect from a true New Yorker. Interesting details of the city and lots of great destinations- He made the these hours tour fun and exciting. We visited locations that I may have not gone to on my own and enjoyed being able to get off the bus and walk the city and see the sights while still having Tim give us backstories and valuable facts. A must do for the first time in NYC!
The tour was great! We got an overview of all New York City has to offer and then some! The tour guide, Rachel, was very knowledgeable and also had a keen sense of humor. She made the tour an experience to remember. We were given a look at all the prominent sights so we could decide where we wanted to spend more time. The boat tour offered a wonderful opportunity to take photos of The Statue of Liberty and a close-up look at the bridges of the area. This is a definite must-do if you have limited time and are a new visitor to NYC! We took the day tour with Tyler. She was very knowledgeable and gave many excellent tips.

We arrived for this tour and didn't know what to expect. Well tourguide were brilliant. for his skill in negotiating the roads and wonderful facts which he put over with humour. We didn't expect to see so much in one day but we did. Wonderful tour and I would highly recommend this to anyone. Do it on your first day , it's well worth the money.
My husband (81) and I (73) visited NYC for the very first time, and had just two days. This was the perfect tour for us. We had an excellent tour guide and He was not only very very knowledgeable in historical and modern day NYC, he was extremely entertaining, and made sure that we did not miss seeing a thing. We made several stops to get off the bus and walk around such as and the 911 Memorial; in addition to a bathroom break and a lunch stop. Part of the tour was a very nice large boat on which we cruised to see the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. My husband has issues with walking very far, but we were allowed to take his small, foldable transport wheelchair, so he was able to get off at every stop to enjoy all that the tour had to offer. He was very kind and patient in assisting him and others where needed. We were extremely happy that we chose this tour. It was truly one of the highlights of our visit to this wonderful city.
The tour was everything we needed to see the main places and to orientate ourselves for the rest of our time in NY. the guide guide was excellent , with lots of interesting and funny stories and useful ideas for places to go and see.
Booked this because my mom has always wanted to go to NYC and wanted to see it all. I've been several times but thought she would like an organized tour since she can't walk very well but wanted to see it all. We were only there for 3 days so I thought this sounded great - and it was AMAZING. Cindy our tour director is an absolute expert on the history, architecture and experience of New York. I am so happy I brought my mom because we both learned more about the city than we ever would have. so we would all get the very best experience possible. I can't say enough good things about these two - book this trip, it's worth every penny. If you've been there a lot before, I still guarantee Gil will teach you more and the time will go by so quickly. Loved it, and my mom was truly thrilled!!
My wife and I recently took a full day, guided Manhattan City tour, which included a short harbor cruise. our tour guide was unbelievably articulate, informed and funny! We have taken many tours, in many cities, including NYC. However, this one was special.
My husband and i spent a very enjoyable guided tour around Manhattan with a very informative tour guide, It was a very pleasurable trip and took in all the major sites including a cruise to statue of liberty etc. Not forgetting the excellent driving skills of they made a great team and well worth a trip, many thanks and looking forward to the next one.
I go to school in Boston and I finally, finally, got around to visiting NYC for the weekend. I didn\'t have much time to see all the typical tourist stuff on foot, so this tour was a great alternative. Plus, the price is practically a steal . I saw a good portion of New York in just one day! Just one thing to keep in mind if you book this tour. Try and get a seat up front, those seats have the best views
I'm not usually into tours or speed sightseeing, but I only had the one day in NYC. This tour fit my schedule perfectly and I got to see so much of NYC in just one day. I recommend the tour to everyone. The price was reasonable and the ride wasn't too bumpy.
I will definitely recommend this tour! I join this tour twice. First time I join this tour by myself this time I go with my friend. Tour guide is so nice . He has very detailed and interesting descriptions about every attraction. I also go to the One World Trade Center which is the tallest building in USA which other tour do not have this attraction. They provide hot water even WiFi in the bus. Happy one day tour!
We booked this tour through taketour a week before our arrival in New York. We had our tour in a heated minibus which was lovely and the driver was great. Our guide was brilliant, he made us all feel welcome and his knowledge of New York was amazing, he really must have a photographic memory to remember all the dates and information he gave us. he also had some great tips for where to eat and visit during our stay. We even got a hug at the end, Thanks
This is my second time to join this tour first time i went by myself. this time i recommend this tour to my friends, they enjoyed so much fun. the tour guide was so nice!! The tour guide gave so detailed on every attraction. they also provide free-WIFI in this luxury Mercedes Bens van . i will recommend more friends to join in.
We checked out several tours but decided on this one and were very pleased. We had a terrific overview of the city and harbour with several unrushed stops in places of interest with a very informative and friendly guide.Thank you.
This tour was so fun filled and relaxing. The guide was very helpful and knowledgeable about places where we visited Also they are very punctual so we could see more places within the limited time. Everyone enjoyed the trip.
Cindy was AMAZING! As a 10-year resident of NYC, She really knew The City well. We loved her insight at each of our stops like she was sharing a City Secret at each stop, her willingness to answer all of our questions and tips on what else to check out in NYC and how to navigate the Subway. We loved her food suggestions, too. It was the perfect way to start off our week in NYC.Of all of our trip decisions, this was by far the best we made!
Wow is the right word for this trip! Very thrilling to know the city. It feels different once you are there for real. Learned a lot from the guy who knows it all (who was the guide btw.)! I highly recommend
My family of four (2 adults, 2 children ages 11 and 7) had the pleasure of being guided through NYC by Cindy. Cindy was full of awesome information! We left Time Square promptly and hit the ground running from there. I highly recommend this tour to anyone. We only had a couple of days in NYC, so taking this tour was perfect. My family got to see highlights of lower Manhattan and we were able to pick what we really wanted to see the next day. Do this tour! ItĘ»s TOTALLY worth it.
I along with my wife from India went on a 1 day NYC tour, our first visit to NYC and it just surprised me with all the services I received at a very low price. We enjoyed a lot .We had a wonderful weekend in NYC and will remain in our memories. Thanks a lot City Sights. We would love to take your services again.
If you plan to put in as much as you can in one day this is the tour for you. For a quick tour of New York. You get to see all the important tourist sights and the Tour Guide is very helpful and knowledgable. Entrance fee to sights are not included in the package, so you need to have money on you to pay for the entrance fees. Lunch also is not catered for.
For a first time in New York, we wanted to start our stay there with a tour in order to get bearings on the city and a bit of historical background. This tour didn't disappoint us: our guide had an amazing knowledge of historical facts but also the key people who made New York such an iconic place. The tour itself was very well organised. I highly recommend it.
