It was great! We got to see the different areas around Manhattan and decide from there where we wanted to spend our time here.

It worth the Money to be honest. Staff very abrupt. When discussed with them. They said that they are not part of Expedia but a third party provider, so I guess they can treat your customers of Expedia as they see fit. Very disappointed Much easier to take public transportation and do your own sight seeing. Saves money and frustration

Great way to see the city. The Harlem and Brooklyn tours should be offset times so you can have a chance at doing them all. Tour guides are informative!
