    This is an excellent way to see the main sites of the city in 1 day. Our guide John was highly knowledgeable, mentioning many facts and stories including Movie and TV locations, the history of many buildings and parks and around the 9/11 Memorial. We especially enjoyed the boat trip on the river, riding under the Brooklyn Bridge and past the Statue of Liberty - Well worth paying extra for the Top of The Rock at the end of the bus tour where John checked us in and pointed us in the right direction for us to get to the top very quickly! Highly Recommend!

    It was absolutely worth to have the one day unlimited 8 hour tour. We have enjoyed even the weather was not good. The final destination specially - Top of the rock is the best! Our special thanks goes to Tour manager Hemu Patel: we asked him to change our day tour for one day earlier booked the tickets in advance and he tried his best to do it through communicating with the Grey line. Although the bus is not even half full, but it seemed not easy to change. So we appreciate the effort made by the manager. It was money worth spending. We recommend!!
