    This tour was a great way to learn the location of points of interest and how to navigate through this amazing city. Highly recommend this to first time visitors as a must do on their first day. Tour guides where very informative.

    Easy to find, reliable, clean, professional driver and the best view of the city, we got to visit many places that would have been imposible on our own

    It's amazing but they have only hop-on hop-off tour.
    If you just want to see New York by yourself, they are the best value.
