We booked this trip for a wider overview of the city and cool nighttime photo opps. Maybe I didn't pay enough attention to the details as we were surprised to find that the whole trip was based in New Jersey (I guess in my head I was expecting a tour of the city lights, plus a view from across the river). We'd had a busy day and I must confess that my daughters both fell asleep during the trip downtown and across the river - since the guide's main topic of 'interest' for the first part of the trip was 'traffic'. The stops were great though - we enjoyed visiting the old New Jersey railway station, Empty Sky Memorial, Cake Boss Bakery and Frank Sinatra's birthplace and loved seeing the location of Hamilton's fatal duel. Tour ended early as it was too cold to linger anywhere. The photo opps also got increasingly more impressive. Our guide was well-meaning but not that engaging but over all pleased to see sites that we wouldn't otherwise have known about.

Easily found pick up outside Manhattan Times Square hotel. Was a little surprised to see a small minivan, was expecting a tour bus. That said, we were a small group of 10. Our tour guide, Millie was amazing. Not only was she a confident, safe driver, she was so knowledgeable and could effortly switch between English and Spanish at the same time! My husband, who has a degree in Spanish, was most impressed and enjoyed an informal Spanish lesson to brush up on his own vocabulary. We loved being in New Jersey and seeing the town of Hoboken - so much quieter and laid back than the city. The parks and viewpoints were well chosen and the 9/11 monument was particularly poignant.

We would not able to visit all the places we visited in this tour by myself! The bus guide, Millie, was friendly and fun, and we enjoyed beautiful views of the Manhattan from NJ side. I would highly recommend this tour, and we would try other tours in the near future.
