          Contrasting tour
          Very very nice and polite guide, he told us non stop interesting facts about what we are seeing and the history of new york. However, the attractions themselves are not very offering, but is a nice and interesting tour to see other things than manhattan.

          A great addition to the NY trip
          He is very knowledgeable with good time management and excellent driving skills. Unfortunately I was the only one who doesn’t speak Spanish so 70% of the time I had no clue. It’s an amazing tour! Thank you!

          City Skyline day and night tour
          This tour of the NYC skyline from the New Jersey side was excellent and a must for any Photographers. The 1st two stops were in late evening daylight. The last 2 stops were at night with the city lit up. So you get both type of views. .Sebastian was an excellent guide giving us history of New Jersey. He has a pleasant nature. He was polite and very patient. His driving was experienced and safe. We stopped at 4 different view points all excellent, we also stopped at Carlos Original Bakery. Thank you Sebastian

          Great views of the city!!
          This tour was full of pretty views, fun and/or important history facts, and a look at New York and New Jersey buildings and the differences and similarities between both cities. I found the drive parts relaxing and informative after a long day of walking and the picture spots breathtaking and beautiful.

          Day tour to Niagra fall from newyork by flight ✈️
          Actually it was my first trip to newyork city. The city of dream. I was staying in Manhattan near 7th and 8th avenue,49 street. There was a subway station in 50 street,about 2 minutes walking from my hotel. I had a dream to explore the Niagra fall. I had a short vacation. My initial plan was to go Niagra fall by bus at night as it took 8/9 hrs journey and I had a plan to stay there but suddenly I had changed my mind. After discussing with my colleague, I had decided to go there by flight at early morning at 8 am bu delta airlines and returned at night by 8 pm by flight. The flight time was 1 hr 15 minutes. So, about 20 hrs Long journey, I got relieved from tiredness. I had arrived at buffalo international airport at 9.15 am. From airport you can go the Niagara falls by bus or taxi ( uber/lyft). Taxi cost about 50 USD. If you go by bus , the bus route was : buffalo downtown and from there to Niagra Fall. It will cost total 5 USD . As a first time and new, I took taxi. I enjoyed the beauty of Niagara falls, that was amazing. There was cool weather ( for me). I think it's better to on may /June. There was various shop , market near the Niagra fall. If you have Canadian visa, you can go other site of Niagara falls. After whole day exploring, I returned by bus. The down town was super quiet but I like the buffalo city. Small city with all two storied building. I came to airport at 6.30 pm for my flight. The flight had saved me 20 hrs journey. There were many people who liked to drive can go by private car. That Niagara falls gave me a superb vibe. I had saw live rainbow 🌈 there.

          One of the best tours I’ve ever taken! Informative and entertaining guide and small group. There’s even more to this tour than advertised. Learned a lot and got some great photos.

          Don't recommend it. Try "Top View Tours" instead.
          -1/5 Tour was not on a bus but a white van. If I knew it would be in a van, I would have canceled. Thought tour would be throughout NYC, but instead, they took us to Jersey City. Very disappointing.

          Highly recommend the contrasts tour
          Highly recommend the contrasts tour which enables the traveler to see the different boroughs of New York. Mille presented the tour in a fun and informative way and was an excellent guide. If you are thinking of booking this tour do not hesitate to do so!

          Wonderful Winter Wonderland
          This was such an added bonus to our trip. Tour guide was fabulous as was the driver. Got to see an entire different way of living as we are from Texas. The Xmas lights were incredible and so much fun. So nice to walk around and enjoy them. Tour guide was wonderful and gave us soo much information about New York and Brooklyn. An added treat was to stop at the Brooklyn Bridge and take gorgeous pictures at night! Try this you will love it!

          A variety of different aspects of New York all in 1 excursion.
          Sebastian was our tour guide on the city of contrast tour. He drove us around in a minibus with 10 people (which included my 14year old son and myself) it was a more personalised experience rather than the large groups of tours which we passed spread over the large coaches of 40 plus tourists. Sebastian spoke both English and Spanish on the tour and was a fountain of knowledge. We got picked up for the tour from The Manhattan hotel in Times Square in the early morning (about 9:30am) We toured various boroughs of New York over a 4-5hours seeing places we would not have normally seen, places which are not necessarily the bog standard tourist attractions. Sebastian explained all about the places of interest, and was a fantastic guide for our day out. Please be mindful however that The excursion does not drop you off at the same pick up point. You have the option of being dropped fairly close to the footpath leading to Brooklyn bridge where you can walk over this iconic bridge, or you can be dropped off in China Town. We decided to be dropped off at the start of Brooklyn bridge to walk a mile over to Manhattan where we then caught the Subway back to Times Square where our hotel was located. We were stunned by the view walking over this bridge. It is defiantly worth the walk.

          Fun tour and lots and lots of Christmas lights
          This tour picks up in central Manhattan and a small coach drives out to Dyker Heights. The journey takes less than hour where you disembark and walk around Dyker Heights which is full of houses with Christmas lights and decorations. The walking fairly easy but you do need to keep an eye on the guide as there any several other walking tours in the area. Be prepared for walking outside and to possibly be cold. There are no refreshments or toilets on the walk although there is a toilet on the coach. The guide was friendly and informative and pointed out areas of interest in Manhattan and Brooklyn as we drove along making the journey really interesting. Our guide knew a lot about food in New York (not sure why there is not a food tour as this would be great). Lovely evening, got us in the Christmas mood.

        My 19 year old daughter and I had the great pleasure in participating in the Royal City Tours Private tour of Niagara Falls. Our experience and treatment by our driver, Daniel and local Niagara tour guide, Brian, were first class.

        Daniel and Brian placed the highest priority in our comfort, safety and overall trip experience. Our trip was 21 hours from departure from NYC to our return. Daniel drove safely and responsibly. He outlined the course of our trip and made sure to inform us that he was happy to fulfill any specific travel needs we may need along the way.

        Brian is a very knowledgeable and informed local licensed tour guide of the Niagara Falls area. He was able to instill knowledge of the falls, geology, historical water power generation, local history and wildlife we encountered. He was always concerned that we were getting the best experience and went out of his way to meet our needs.

        We chose the morning departure as we wanted to see the falls lit up at night. It was a beautiful sight and a great finale to a day spent exploring these beautiful falls. It is a long trip, but very worth the experience of this extraordinary natural wonder and State Park.

        Best trip ever perfect timing for all the attractions super fun and mesmerizing place to go!! Daniel, our driver pricked us up at about midnight, The driving back and forth was wonderful. Daniel was entertaining yet professional and caring. He kept us on schedule very well (how did he know?); he was flexible to our needs. Once at Niagara Falls, Daniel introduced us to Billy, the tour guide. Billy was knowledge and he was so sweet to take all of the family photos. Billy truly made out visit enjoyable and full. He was patient and giving. We would go back to royal city tours on a heartbeat... we had that much fun. Thank you Daniel and Billy for being so good at what you do. And..thank you for the present!
