My 12 year old daughter and I enjoyed this tour very much. It was nice to be able to walk through the neighborhoods. The guide was great and informative while on the bus. The Brooklyn bridge stop at night was beautiful. Area for improvement: Wish guides/bus driver could accept tips using Google pay.

The tour was great. Our tour guide made sure everyone was accounted for before we began the tour (the bus left on time). The guide was very informative and spoke throughout the tour showing us building structures and the history of NY. We even got to see the Brooklyn bridge on our last stop. We saw the lights and they were amazing to see. I highly recommend this tour.
