    Daniel was a fun and energetic guide although it was clear english wasnt his mother tongue but his personality made up for it, theres room for improvement for the explanations on the bus

    Bus was way too hot and lacking in ventilation, but it has a toilet

    The suburb itself is beautiful and some of the decos we saw definitely is the best in terms of how committed the house owners are, and here you will understand what christmas should feel like

    The only downside was the streets become quite packed with tourists like us (like, times square kind of packed) especially around the really awesome crazy decos

    It will be very difficult to find a suburb anywhere in the world that can match this, and the story behind the 'why' is really one of a kind. Every visitor to NYC during christmas shd go on this tour

    I just felt bad to the actual residents for ruining their neighbourhood lol

    The tour was rescheduled after we’d left for our holidays, so it was by pure luck that we spotted the new pick up point! Absolutely appalling!!!
    There was no microphone for the tour guide so we heard virtually nothing!
    We were on an open top bus in December-it was freezing! Tour went on far too long. EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED!!!!

    We found this tour very informative and interesting. It's an amazing way of seeing some parts of the city that are not always in the books. Our tour guide, Jorge was amazing and made the tour a fantastic experience. I would do it again and for sure recomend it to everyone.

    We went on one of the coldest nights possible and the drivers and guides were helpful and thorough. They were clear on safety instructions, informative about the areas and kept us warm. I think restrooms are not on every bus, but there was one on ours- if that helps. Worth the trip!

    The coach was comfortable as we were allocated seats with extra legroom, the windows were clean and allowed a good view of the lovely autumn colours. It was a very long trip with only one thirty minute stop each way.
    There was an onboard toilet but it was very crude and not clean.
    The Falls were spectacular of course and the boat ride was well organised. There was not much time left to explore and it was mostly taken up with trying to find the meeting point.

    The guide was so friendly, knowledgeable and pleasant and delivered in both English and Spanish. The driver was very good with smooth, comfortable driving. All stops and breaks were advised with times to board the coach for each. The guide thanked the passengers at each for boarding in a timely manner, to keep the day enjoyable for all.

    Very knowledgeable. The bus takes you to many different places in the city. You get to see a lot. Be prepared to walk though bc it stops at places so you get a real feel. Tickets were not super clear. There are many bus tours that meet in same area. Look for USA guided tours. Absolutely recommend!

    Where to start! Well firstly in my opinion if you want to see New York with a true New Yorker, a fountain of knowledge and a wonderful personality then look no further. Our experience was truly fabulous.

    From the moment Sheldon collected us I knew we were in for something special and he didn’t disappoint ! I don’t think there is anything Sheldon doesn’t know about New York! His delivery and humour is an absolute treat!

    The cars Sheldon uses are luxurious and extremely comfortable, the driver gets you up close to the various sights and it’s just a lovely and special way to see the city up close and personal. We spent 10 hours with sheldon and although prior to this tour you may wonder if the cost is worth it, well i can tell you it is worth every penny!

    Sheldon will give you an overview of New York and then you can make a decision over where you want to go back and visit in your own time. I suggest you go out with a Sheldon at the start of your New York visit which then leaves you time to do this!

    I just want to take this opportunity to thank Sheldon and his team for an amazing experience and won’t hesitate to recommend him to all 😀

    Fabulous tour- the whole family enjoyed it- the bus ride to Brooklyn was so informative and full of snippets of facts and information about the districts we passed through- yes it’s pricey but we had so much more for our money
