Good Morning, I have a question for return bus. can I choice pick up location & drop off location differently? I'd like to choice Manhattan as departure location and Flushing as return location.
by stella lee on 2019-09-30
Dear Stella Lee, Thank you for your interest at TakeTours. Yes you are able to have a different pick up and drop off location we will just have to notify the operator of this request and they will have to confirm. Once you make the reservation, please contact us back with the different location points so we can forward them the request. Best Regards, DianaP
by Taketours on 2019-10-01
Can I take the tour but opt out of some parts of the tour, on the second day, to explore on my own? I would like to take both buses to and from with the tour group and stay in the accommodation provided, but may not be able to join the tour on Saturday during the day. Would that be an issue?
by rep on 2016-10-17
Thank you for your email, Unfortunately the tour already has a set itinerary if you want to explore on your own you can but you will have to find your own transportation to the hotel afterwards. The bus will not wait for you, and you have to let your tour guide know that you will explore on your own and you will meet them at the hotel. You are still required to pay the mandatory $8/day/passenger for that day. If you have any further questions feel free to contact our support group available 24/7.

Thank you for your email, when you make a reservation we can send a request to see if it will be allowed for you to get picked-up and dropped-off in different locations. We can't guarantee that you will be able to, but we will certainly help you try. If you have further questions feel free to contact our support team available 24/7. Best Regards.

I know a lot depends on traffic and travel times, but based on past history could you please give a breakdown as to approximately how much time we would get at some of the attractions? Especially the aquarium. Also, what are the in season dates for the lobster steal cruise? Thanks!!! Liz
by liz on 2016-09-08
Thank you for your email, Unfortunately because there are so many factors involved in time management, we would not be able to give you any certain times for attractions.
