The tour guide was very good but the format laid out by the touring company is misleading we spent 90% of the tour on the bus, then the ferry ride to Staten Island is offered to the public for free, we only had. 10mins to grab something the eat and head back on the bus. So basically this tour cost over $100 to stay on bus the majority of time.

Had an excellent trip, our tour guide Dina & driver Washington were great. The trip was scheduled for the day on New Year's eve & everything was as planned. It was a very informative tour. I was also given the option to take the upclose Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island boat trip that wasn't included in the initial package. I took the ride and it was a truly amazing experience. Thank you :)
Very Good

We had only a couple of days in Manhattan. This tour helped us to get a quick overview on key main sights. The guide David was very knowledgable and enteraining. We saw a lot of things in a very short time. Thank you.
Ok but Update your site

The tour itself was okay and Brooklyn Jim was a good guide, but I felt we didn't get enough time to explore a lot of the stops. The restaurant stated in the meet up information doesn't exist anymore, so an update would be helpful and although it stated we would receive water on our tour that did not happen either.
Was a great time!

Had our family of four for first time in NYC, the ride was great, guide was knowledgeable and we had a great time! Only complaint was no water, but everything else was top!!
Great Way to See the City - - Excellent Value for the Money

Brooklyn Jim was an entertaining tour guide who provided a wealth of historical information as well as some little known facts about Manhattan. I highly recommend this tour over the hop on and off variety as Jim stays with the group the entire time and is available to answer any questions you may have. There is no "down time" standing around waiting for the next available bus to arrive and take you to another attraction. We saw long lines of people waiting to board those buses and unfortunately if only 5 people get off at your stop, only 5 people can then get on, so there is a lot of wasted time to be had.
