Everything about our tour was awesome our tour guide mark he gave us a full experience of NYC he was very knowledgeable about the city but I have to say the Statue of liberty was breath taking my family and I had a great time and we will do this again.

Mr Mark and Mr Levi were awesome! We learned so much rich history on this tour. Professional service. Clean vehicle. We will definitely book this tour again!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
An exceptional tour, and highly recommended
, May 2021
Our day with Marc, tour guide, and Levi, driver and company owner, was exceptional. My husband, a native New Yorker, having been away from the city for decades, thoroughly enjoyed reminiscing with Marc, and comparing memories of the city from their younger years. My husband, our adult daughter and I were the only ones on the tour (I’m certain many companies would have canceled without at least a half full capacity), and Marc was very thoughtful and cognizant of our needs, as was Levi. Marc was a font of knowledge about NYC and its history, and very enjoyable to listen to. As we were the only ones on the bus, Levi even drove the added distance to our hotel at the end of the tour - above and beyond for certain!
Best NYC Tour
, May 2021
Mark was our guide and he was super knowledgeable about everything NYC. Levi was our driver and we had such a comfortable/safe ride in a Mercedes bus that was partially open air. The views were incredible from the bus. The tour did not include a lunch. But we did stop in Little Italy for a snack. The tour started on time at 9 am and ended by 2:30 pm. We saw and learned a lot in a short amount of time. The meeting spot is at St. Patrick’s Cathedral. I highly recommend to go there early and see the church and Rockerfeller Center across the street (stores are not open though because it’s too early). Levi & Mark were awesome!!
Highly Recommend

We had an awesome time. Mark was super informative and told us about every sight that we passed along the way. Saw so much more than we thought we would and learned a ton. Would recommend to anyone visiting NYC
Wow! What an experience!

What an amazing experience. This is a no brainer when you want to see the sights. Levi was an amazing driver and Derrick was super knowledgeable and so attentive to what we wanted to see and experience. Do not think twice! Book the tour!
Amazing Tour

Me and my cousin enjoyed ourself. We learned so many things about NYC such as the good places to eat and also have fun. Derrick our tour guide was amazing and treated us like family and the bus driver Levi was nice as well.
Great experience

With this being my first trip to New York City, I wanted to get a good overview of the major attractions. This tour had the attractions that matched my expectations. The trip to Little Italy was mainly a lunch stop, but the restaurant definitely had an authentic feel. The itinerary on the website led me to believe it would be lunch on my own, but it turned out to be a set restaurant with a $15 flat rate. I would have preferred to choose my own lunch arrangements. “Uncle Jeffery” is a guide that is unparalleled. I have taken other Viator tours; and he was by far the best guide. The van driver was prompt and accommodating. I recommend this to anyone who wants a great overview of the city.

The tour was very good except we were constantly waiting for the bus to pick us up after every stop. Other than that, the bus driver was very nice and the tour guide was very helpful.
