Superb tour - definitely recommended especially if you have seen New York before as this tour takes a very different look at the city and surroundings. Driver and tour guide made good use of the Friday evening traffic jam to talk us through our itinerary and point out places of interest on the way out of lower Manhattan. The views of Manhattan from New Jersey were spectacular especially at the Empty Sky Memorial and from Hamilton park after the sun went down. The view from Liberty park gets you really close to the Staue of Liberty. It was great fun to visit Carlos bakery in Hoboken but the star of the day was pizza from Basiles.
Highly recommended!

We did this tour on our last night in NYC, and it really was a grand finale! Millie, our guide, was great - she really knew her stuff, and was so lovely as well. Her genuine love of the area shone through, and she made sure we took away some spectacular photos. Our fellow passengers were also really friendly. The tour took us out of the city, and into New Jersey, which gave us access to views and places that we never would have got to on our own. As day turned to night, the skyline views were magnificent; the familiar image from a million films and magazines, set out in real life in front of us. It was amazing. This was one of the best parts of our trip. We would not hesitate to recommend it to everyone!

Millie was a great guide. She set the tone for the evening with her relaxing voice, and showed us great spots to see the NYC skyline and Statue of Liberty. A stop at Carlo’s bakery was a nice touch. We were super thankful that we could switch nights because the weather was awful on the night we originally booked for!

What an amazing tour! Mili is a fantastic guide and the spots she took us to to see the city skyline were all beautiful. She loves the city & it shows with her joy of sharing some of the history and knowledge of the area! Such wonderful views of NYC and all of the surrounding areas as we progressed from daylight to the bright & beautiful night sky was mesmerizing! And between the sights, we enjoyed some scrumptious bakery goods from Carlo’s. A fantastic evening! Thanks!

Our tour was on Wednesday 9-21-22. Millie was our tour guide. She was great. Knowledgeable, and personable. She showed us so many great sites to see at night that we never would have gotten to see for ourselves. These views from Hoboken were fantastic. Skip the other night tours and do this one!!

Very good experience. About 4 hours in total but since there were traffic when it started it took about half hour to get our NYC. The tour is through NJ, 5 stops. Liberty Park and Empty Sky Memorial are the first two stops. 3rd stop is a 20 min break around 8pm at pizza store and bakery. Foods are good. Then Hoboken Park and Weekhawken. since the price includes all tolls I think it’s very reasonable for individual. Daniel is our tour guy and he’s very nice.

Booked for 5.30pm tour with my family but bus didn’t turn up. I called after waiting a while and was told 4.15pm was latest departure and that I couldn’t have a 5.20pm ticket! Asked for refund via email and was told 5.30pm tour was cancelled that day because of bad weather (the bad weather was days before not that day!). Got my money back but we were leaving NYC shortly after so would rather have gone on the trip. Had also organised the day around this trip (dinner, travel to pick up point etc) and waited 40 mins at pick up point so felt very disappointed. If you book a 4 hour tour then you need the company to be reliable.

This tour was beyond my expectations. Our tour guide Milli (Mildred) was very friendly and knowledgeable about the history, culture and architecture of NY and the surrounding vantage points in NJ. We had ample time at each stop to soak in the views, take pictures and just enjoy the vistas. The places we covered on this tour were not even on my search list and that made it very special for us.

Highly recommend.

Loved the small group, only five of us.
Millie knew so, so much info. of New York and New Jersey. We saw many sites we had seen the week before but now we received the history relating to each.
So much fun.. loved New York after dark.
Good Job Millie.

Wonderful intro to NYC. David was very informative, laid back, and accommodating. Day skyline transition to night in different locations was breathtaking. Plenty of time to take photos or relax in van. Original Carlos bakery enticed us, yet all experience was wonderful.
