I'm not sure we went to all the places listed on the brochures but it was an easier way to get to see more really at less. Stopped and got off to look around many places. 70$ for 3 1/2 hours I think is reasonable.

In my experience, they would not do this for 7 people. The bus normally carries about 30 people and we met it at a pre-determined location. There are services on NYC that do private tours, though.
