The description did not mention WALKING ! Neither did it mention the extra fares tbat had to be paid! We expectex to be on a small BUS or VAN!!!! My group of 10 were very disappointed but we took the tour because we did not want to lose money Jeff the tour guide was excellent duringthe entire tour!!!!

Thank you for your review and feedback. We are certainly pleased you found our tour guide excellent. In terms of transportation, it sounds like you may have been more satisfied with one of the several private tours by vehicle we offer, as opposed to the tour by public transit you selected. Tours using private transport are more expensive than tours by public transit, but for some parties, tours by private transport are the better option, especially those tours with small children, frail elderly or mobility impaired individuals. Clearly a tour by public transport involves more walking than a driving tour. This is why on the website from which you ordered your subway / bus tour it states “Travelers should have a moderate physical fitness level.” I wish you would called us before placing your order, so we could ensure you were selecting the tour most appropriate for your group. Thank you, once again.

One of the best tours of our trip. Our tour guide was very knowledgable of the city and all areas of New York. Our group consisted of 3 generations of women. We were all very interested in all the areas he showed us. After his class in taking the subway, we were on our way the rest of the vacation using that mode of transportation. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is not familiar with the different areas of the city.

This was worthwhile, we saw things you just don't see without a guide. It's a lot of walking but flat and easy streets. Recommend this tour.

Our guide was Dana and she did an amazing job given the flooding rain on the day of the tour. Dana is knowledgeable of the city and was able to quickly adjust the tour and turn what could have been a miserable day into a day of fun. She found us dry places to tour, like Grand Central Station, Rockefeller Center, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Trinity Church and Federal Hall. Dana taught us how to use the subway system which we found extremely helpful---my child gets carsick in taxis. The company was very professional--responding within 24 hours to my emails. The day before the tour, they called me to tell me Dana would be our tour guide and where we would meet her. When we couldn't find Dana our fault--we were in the wrong place, Dana quickly called us and we found each other.
