I had a truly wonderful time on this trip. Our tour guide was Mr. Chiu. He was a pleasant man who freely gave advice on how to save money and on how to protect ourselves from some of the street elements of various cities. My only concern was that we were not aware of paying in cash upfront for the admissions fee and gratuities. Overall, I would still give this tour and Mr. Chiu an A rating
In simple words if I have to mention my experience, it was just awesome and great. Right from the pickup point to visiting all the locations and then traveling back, it was a great time. The tour guide Mr. Chu was very cooperative and supportive. All the places as per the schedule were covered. The hotel booked for the stay was great. We had a fun-filled and exciting trip. I would recommend others to go for this trip if you would like to cover all the important places in 2 days. Based on my experience from this trip, I am looking forward to booking other trips soon.
I really liked this tour. It was beyond my expectations. They covered all the attractions mentioned. The hotel accommodations was also good. If you want to cover maximum places in 2 days, this tour is the best.
I was impressed with the tour coverage of New York highlights. The guide was very helpful. Further, the tickets let you pass through long queues to cover the events and spots pretty quickly.
Madam Tussauds can be avoided as the money value is not great, but the rest of the attractions are worth the pennies spent.
But, the disappointing factor is the accommodation, which is more than an hour drive from from New York (out of New Jersey) and RAMADA was not a good place to stay. Breakfast, was out of many items and non-responsive staff.
It was an excellent tour. We could see many places in the minimum possible time, at an affordable cost and with great comfort. The tour of New York was really well planned and we could manage many attractions of the city, including Empire State Building, Intrepid museum, Wall Street, Times Square, Statue of Liberty, etc. Our stay at New Jersey was a bit far off, but quite comfortable. The vehicle was in good condition and the driver, Chi, was very helpful, though not much proficient in English language. We enjoyed the tour and are looking forward to our next tour in December. We would recommend it to friends who want to make best use of their time in a cost effective manner.
Tour guide was nice but needs to be fluent in English.
Hotel was nice, travel itinerary was good.
Only negative thing was there was not enough time to go to restroom and get lunch. Lunch and dinner options needs to be better. This tour is very helpful for first time visitors as well as senior citizens.
I along with my friend took this tour on October 26th & 27th. Here is my detailed review:
- 100% coverage of places as mentioned in itinerary.
- Ample time for site seeing at most places.
- Sticking to times including pickup and drop off.
- Place of stay was very good and clean but a bit far away. They were almost 50 minutes drive from New York.
- Tour guide should speak more of English and cater to English speaking visitors also. But otherwise, he is very nice and polite.
- More time is required at the Wax Museum and Intrepid Museum. I think that can be done if a slightly nearby hotel is chosen.
Final Verdict: Highly recommended for first time visitors.
This is the best New York tour I have. If you want to see New York without hassle and not taking their subway, this is a good tour. The driver drop you on major sites, let you see it and he picked us up. The only negative is they changed the hotel the last minute and it is very old and dirty.
