Nothing new. Not funny. It’s okay if you want to rest for 75 minutes. I would not recommend it, it focus more on finding dancers on the street than getting to know NY or have something different from other bus tours.

Yes, that is what THE RIDE is, a show and entertainment, It is not a sightseeing tour.

When you're in group, then it can be verry pleasant to do the Ride. It s a funny way to learn something more about NY.

This review seems like better than a 3 star. Perhaps you meant to give 4 or 5 stars?

Krista our tour guide was very informative, enthusiastic and knowledgable; she made the tour. It was interesting covering the history of lower Manhattan and being shown buildings we would of just passed not knowing they were there, or of any significance.

My only gripe was that the VR was grainy and unclear. I thought it was just my set, but it appeared to be the same for the other 3 members of my family. I feel this does need to be addressed in order to improve the overall experience of the tour.

Thanks for your review and the feedback about the VR. Sometimes scrolling at the top of your headsets works to clear this issue. We will have a look to ensure the problem isn't system wide.

this is an upgrade from your regular boring hop on hop off. Animated and different . shows more of the character of NYC"s people.

"Boring" hop on/off for sure. We are revolutionizing the sightseeing experience.

The many surprises along the way are well worth it. I won't spoil it in the review for those that are going to experience it.
My favourite singer is Lawrence and favourite Sax player is Cara! (I've been 4 times and seen different hosts/singers/musicians/dancers every time - it's always good!)
