Our tour guide was Jay. So knowledgeable about NY - it was incredible how he could answer any question we had. We started at 10am and got back just after 4.30pm. I did this tour at the beginning of my time in NY and it enabled me to choose what I would focus on for the rest of my holiday.... More

We visited New York City from Halifax, Nova Scotia from 4 to 9 Sept 2014. On our 1st (5 Sept) morning at the Sheraton New York Time Square, our concierge Anthony suggested we do the OnBoard Sightseeing Tour and we are SO glad we did. Henry got us set up on the bus, our tour guide was Tyler and our... More

4 of us were in NYC for a short visit last week. As it was the 1st time for 3 in the group I decided that a guided tour was the best was to see the city and then do out own thing for the rest of the stay. I'd been through trip advisor and was a bit disappointed with... More

My boyfriend and I recently just did the See the Best Tour and thought that it was very good and informative. Altovise, our tour guide, was really good. Her name is pronounced Alto like singing and then Vise like the beginning of Visa in case you would want to request her for your tour guide and I would highly recommend... More

We did the premium NYC tour we spent so much time in queues and going through security that could have been better spent seeing more of the city very disappointing

The amended Premium Tour is a waste of time. You spend half the day standing in queues waiting for ferries and monument access. No fast track. Had to use public transport. Tour Guide (Mike) didn't provide any insight, just relied on attractions own info services.

Sightseeing in NYC would not have been nearly as memorable without this tour. The bus ride through the city was comfortable and included opportunities to get off of the bus and see some of the attractions up close. Our guide was humorous and extremely knowledgeable. Also, our driver did an excellent job navigating the city streets. As a part of... More

Tour was excellent! We were in New York for 5 days to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. It was our first time in New York and my husband and I along with another couple booked online for our 1st full day in New York. We wanted to see all the sites in a short amount of time, and we certainly... More

I also wanted a "taste" of New York and booked this tour for my family of four. We saw many sites and our tour guide Jay provided humor along the way. The bus was air conditioned and water was provided. Make sure you bring good walking shoes and are prepared for a quick pace!
