On November 17th, Unfortunately, my flight was delayed, and I somehow managed to get to the bus exactly at 5:30 p.m. As I was navigating my way through New York City, I did receive a phone call from USA Guided Tours. I appreciated the call and check in. The tour guide, Tim, always went the extra mile, and really is a representative that makes USA Guided Tours stand out. He had a great sense of humor, had great dad jokes, and took the time to really explain each site. The tour never felt rushed. Tim also did restroom stops, checked in on everyone, and made sure to ask if anyone had questions throughout the tour. Tim showed professionalism, was nice, and was very knowledgeable.

Last but not least, is the driver on November 17th. Unfortunately, I did not catch his name, but he also deserves to be recognized for his excellent service. There were many NYC sites to visit, and he provided a smooth transportation. He was professional, nice, and patient. He worked very well with Tim, and it truly showed their teamwork. He made us feel safe when traveling to the different sites in such a busy city. He also took the time to drop us off as close as possible to each site. This did not go unnoticed. I am grateful that USA Guided Tours had a driver like himself.

This was a WONDERFUL tour. I’ve been to New York City many times over the years, & have never taken a guided tour. This was my daughter’s & grandson’s first visit, & I wanted to show them everything. This tour was just what I wanted. Our driver was Tony, & our tour guide was Brendan. They were both good at their jobs. They took us many great locations. Brendan is an experienced guide with an abundance of knowledge. We had some walking stops which made it even more interesting. We went to High Line Park & were given the history of it. We saw a sculpture of the Statue of Liberty with a boy’s face with glasses. The location changes what is displayed there regularly. We also went to the Little Island & walked around. It was interesting & beautiful. We also went to Grand Central Station which was AMAZING! Brendan took us to the location in the lobby where one person can stand in a corner with their back to the lobby & can talk to the person in the opposite corner with their back turned to the lobby. Those 2 people can have a private conversation, & NO ONE else is able to hear them talking to each other. It was a phenomenon that I didn’t know about. Our last stop was Hudson Park where people who were going to the Edge ended the tour. My group didn’t want to do that, but if you like heights, do it. It’s a remarkable view of the City. We all enjoyed this tour & HIGHLY recommend it!

We've been guided through NYC by night, by Nathan, in a 12 seats small bus. on december 2022.
Nathan has been a wonderful guide, he took us to amazing places we had not visited yet, like The Highline, which is a beautiful place taking us through the city at 50 Ft height along the buildings, to Rockfeller Center, Wall Street district and many others.
The Tour was incredible, and we did appreciate the small bus which helped to share our experience with other tourists.
Thank you very much, we recommend this Tour 100% !
Happy New Year, and make other people enjoy visiting this amazing city as you did for us !
Best regards.

On our first night we decided to go on a tour to get a feel for the city. Our tour guide was Nathan, who was excellent in explaining the history and current real life New Yorkers view on all the sites & events that have shaped the city.

The tour stops were very interesting and we were very pleased with our choice of the tour overall. It would have been 5 stars if we’d have been dropped off where we started after visiting the Edge (more about that later) We were given very comprehensive info by our tour guide Rachel who also included a variety of valuable tips for tourists in NYC. She’s also a good photographer who took as many cellphone shots as we wanted. The driver did a fine job driving us through heavy evening rush hour traffic and dropping us close to our tour stops. The bus was clean and comfortable. Bottles of water were available in a cooler for the passengers to take as desired. We felt we had enough time at each of the stops. Now, getting back to the issue of the Edge which is an optional last stop of the tour. The Edge itself is amazing even for someone like me who’s afraid of heights. The issue is, if you choose this option you must provide your own transportation back. There is a subway station very close to the Edge which returned us to 42nd St in 1 stop. Rachel explained all of this at the very beginning of the tour and helped us to figure it out at the end of the tour. It’s very easy and shouldn’t be a deterrent but it is a minor inconvenience at the end of the night. Cabs were not readily available/present.

I went on the NYC Night Bus Tour with my Girl Scout troop from Washington State. We had a grand time. It was day 4 of our trip and we wished with went on the tour with guide Rachel day one. She provided may helpful tips and tricks for navigating through lower Manhattan and provided many great stories and historical facts about the city. She kept the tour moving so we were able to cover a lot of ground and still get some great pictures.

I chose the open top bus tour with 2 seniors (my mom & aunt) in mind. I wanted them to see some highlights of New York and get some great photo memories along the way. The weather was beautiful and this was the perfect tour for all 3 of us!
Rachel did a fantastic job of relaying interesting information, efficiently visiting all the sites (including restroom stops, perfect photo spots & camerawoman) and made it a such a wonderful & memorable experience! I highly recommend this tour. Make sure to ask for Rachel!

It was amazing I highly recommend it and purchase tickets for The Edge. The only thing is no where did I read before I booked this tour that if you purchased tickets for The Edge you had to find your own transportation back to where you were picked up. The driver and tour guide announced as soon as we got on the bus that if you purchased The Edge tickets that was tge end of the tour for us and we would have to find our own way back. Everyone on the bus had purchased tickets for The Edge we all contacted were we purchased the tickets then by the time we got to the Edge the tour guide announced they would give us 35 minutes at the Edge and would take us back to the pickup point. The tour guide did walk us into the building and took us up to where we needed to be then met us after 35 minutes back where he left us. This was just wrong. Since it didn't say we had to find our own ride back from the Edge why would I think differently. This needs to be written if this is true and the tour ends at The Edge so people can plan a head for transportation.

My family arrived too late for the day tour, so we decided to try the night tour. EXCELLENT CHOICE. NYC at night is breathtaking, even in fridgid temps!! Rachel was an excellent tour guide, Manny was a careful driver in this crazy city. Rachel's stories about the history of the city made everything come alive! She offered to take pics of our whole group at landmarks, which is the only reason I was in any pics the whole trip (I'm usually behind the camera). She was able to adapt on the fly with changes and closures and she knows all the best restroom stops! Her tips & tricks helped guide us the rest of the trip. We even rode the subway with confidence!

Thank you so much Rachel!
