It was the weekend before Christmas so extremely busy, and raining, otherwise would rate higher. Our guide was fantastic, she had lots of great information and neat historical facts to share, and despite the crowds and cold rain she kept a wonderful attitude. My son was the only child on the tour and he enjoyed it just as much as everyone else. Would def recommend!

We had a very nice tour guide named Samantha. She had a lot of knowledge about NYC and was good at telling. She also gave enough time to see the places and to take pictures. Nice girl! We had already seen many places in NYC, so we did not see any new places during the tour.
