We truly loved our Top Dog Tour experience. Victoria was an amazing guide with extensive knowledge and insider tips that made our tour outstanding! Our tour was a great value and Victoria’s guidance allowed us to make the most of the time we had to spend visiting the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Wallstreet, 9/11 Memorial and the One World Observatory. Thank you for a wonderful day Victoria!!!

We had Jordan as our private guide for myself and my 9-year old grandson. Everything went off without any issues and Jordan was absolutely amazing. He had great energy during the five hour tour and really kept my grandson engaged and entertained. He also had great knowledge about all of the locations we visited and made a couple of last minute adjustments with no problem. I'd highly recommend Top Dog Tours and if you have kids in the group, ask for Jordan. You won't be disappointed!

This tour is worth every penny. I’m sure our tour guide Liz made it even better. With a knowledgeable tour guide, you learn so much more than just seeing the iconic places. Additionally, you gain the trust and wisdom of someone who knows exactly when and where to line up, see some things you would normally miss and learn while doing so. Liz was very knowledgeable but also presented the information in an exciting way that helped us remember the things we learned. If you have any kind of disability, this tour is fantastic. Your tour is just for you so if you need to rest, use the bathroom and whatever else you may need, you can go at your own pace. Liz, thank you for an incredible experience.

On my bucket list has long been to take our family to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty and we finally scheduled it the week after Christmas. Having heard horror stories of complications and frustrations and expecting attractions to be crowded, we scheduled with Top Dog Tours for a private tour. We started in Battery Park looking at a line that seemed to stretch for miles, and we skipped it. We met our energetic and knowledgeable guide Liz who had already gotten our tickets and off we went. The experience was deeply moving, particularly Ellis Island. But the difference of going with someone who knew the ropes, where to stand when made all the difference. It is absolutely possible to do this on your own, but the private tour is the best way to go if you can.

Victoria, our guide for our group of 4 knew her stuff. She was sweet, went at the pace we felt comfortable, explained everything to us about the sights as well as gave us information to navigate NY and places to eat and shop. She was a blast and so well prepared. She explained to us exactly what to expect and was on time at our meeting place. She was a pleasure to be with.

The tour was absolutely fabulous, the weather was perfect and the sights not too busy. Our guide Hannah was amazing and was extremely well informed and knowledgeable. She had tonnes of enthusiasm and entertained us the whole time. She also knew the best spots for photos and where best to queue to get on/off the ferries super quick. All in all an excellent day, great value for money and a personal guide worth her weight in gold. Would highly recommend.
