      Day tour to Niagra fall from newyork by flight ✈️
      Actually it was my first trip to newyork city. The city of dream. I was staying in Manhattan near 7th and 8th avenue,49 street. There was a subway station in 50 street,about 2 minutes walking from my hotel. I had a dream to explore the Niagra fall. I had a short vacation. My initial plan was to go Niagra fall by bus at night as it took 8/9 hrs journey and I had a plan to stay there but suddenly I had changed my mind. After discussing with my colleague, I had decided to go there by flight at early morning at 8 am bu delta airlines and returned at night by 8 pm by flight. The flight time was 1 hr 15 minutes. So, about 20 hrs Long journey, I got relieved from tiredness. I had arrived at buffalo international airport at 9.15 am. From airport you can go the Niagara falls by bus or taxi ( uber/lyft). Taxi cost about 50 USD. If you go by bus , the bus route was : buffalo downtown and from there to Niagra Fall. It will cost total 5 USD . As a first time and new, I took taxi. I enjoyed the beauty of Niagara falls, that was amazing. There was cool weather ( for me). I think it's better to on may /June. There was various shop , market near the Niagra fall. If you have Canadian visa, you can go other site of Niagara falls. After whole day exploring, I returned by bus. The down town was super quiet but I like the buffalo city. Small city with all two storied building. I came to airport at 6.30 pm for my flight. The flight had saved me 20 hrs journey. There were many people who liked to drive can go by private car. That Niagara falls gave me a superb vibe. I had saw live rainbow 🌈 there.

      Highly recommend the contrasts tour
      Highly recommend the contrasts tour which enables the traveler to see the different boroughs of New York. Mille presented the tour in a fun and informative way and was an excellent guide. If you are thinking of booking this tour do not hesitate to do so!

      Wonderful Winter Wonderland
      This was such an added bonus to our trip. Tour guide was fabulous as was the driver. Got to see an entire different way of living as we are from Texas. The Xmas lights were incredible and so much fun. So nice to walk around and enjoy them. Tour guide was wonderful and gave us soo much information about New York and Brooklyn. An added treat was to stop at the Brooklyn Bridge and take gorgeous pictures at night! Try this you will love it!

      A variety of different aspects of New York all in 1 excursion.
      Sebastian was our tour guide on the city of contrast tour. He drove us around in a minibus with 10 people (which included my 14year old son and myself) it was a more personalised experience rather than the large groups of tours which we passed spread over the large coaches of 40 plus tourists. Sebastian spoke both English and Spanish on the tour and was a fountain of knowledge. We got picked up for the tour from The Manhattan hotel in Times Square in the early morning (about 9:30am) We toured various boroughs of New York over a 4-5hours seeing places we would not have normally seen, places which are not necessarily the bog standard tourist attractions. Sebastian explained all about the places of interest, and was a fantastic guide for our day out. Please be mindful however that The excursion does not drop you off at the same pick up point. You have the option of being dropped fairly close to the footpath leading to Brooklyn bridge where you can walk over this iconic bridge, or you can be dropped off in China Town. We decided to be dropped off at the start of Brooklyn bridge to walk a mile over to Manhattan where we then caught the Subway back to Times Square where our hotel was located. We were stunned by the view walking over this bridge. It is defiantly worth the walk.

      Fun tour and lots and lots of Christmas lights
      This tour picks up in central Manhattan and a small coach drives out to Dyker Heights. The journey takes less than hour where you disembark and walk around Dyker Heights which is full of houses with Christmas lights and decorations. The walking fairly easy but you do need to keep an eye on the guide as there any several other walking tours in the area. Be prepared for walking outside and to possibly be cold. There are no refreshments or toilets on the walk although there is a toilet on the coach. The guide was friendly and informative and pointed out areas of interest in Manhattan and Brooklyn as we drove along making the journey really interesting. Our guide knew a lot about food in New York (not sure why there is not a food tour as this would be great). Lovely evening, got us in the Christmas mood.

      Spanish Tour
      We did the spanish tour with Rafael and it was great! He was very knowledgeable the whole ride there, gave us so much information. He was a great guide once we started walking around Dyker Heights, so many houses to see and very beautifully decorated. Would recommend.

      One of the best tours I've done in a long time. Our tour guide, Steve, was funny and knew just about everything there was to know about NYC. He gave great advise and couldn't have had a better time!!! Highly recommend ❤️

      WARNING: Tour bus left us behind
      I am so disappointed with this company, so please take this review as a warning. This tour left early and left behind my husband and I and another couple. We were at the tour starting point a few minutes prior to the start time and no one from the tour company to be found. After talking with the hotel lobby and a few other guides from other company's, it was confirmed that we were in the right spot. Still not seeing anyone, I finally called the company (now only 5 min past the tour time) to confirm the tour was still happening, they proceed to tell me the tour left without us. They stated they waited for us for 5 min. This I can confirm was not true, because the time he said they left was 10 min after we had been standing there. The company said they would not refund us EVEN THOUGH WE WERE THERE MINUTES BEFORE THE TOUR START TIME. If I was late I would never be writing this review because I would deserve it and I am a fair person. But they were no where to be seen at the start time. If they want to leave early then they need to fix the start time on their tickets. I will not refer this tour or company going forward.

      Brilliant value for money!
      Comfortable bus with toilet. Guide fun and knowledgeable. One hour's walk around amazing houses (some vans selling hot chocolate). Stopped under Brooklyn bridge on way back for great photo op. Highly recommend.

      Brilliant all round trip, covers everything.
      Booked the trip for our last day and so glad we chose this trip although TBH now wish we had booked it for the start of our trip as we found so much out during the trip that would have been useful to have known earlier. Milly picked us up bang on time and proceeded to take us round in a comfortable, air conditioned mini bus. We went round 4 of the 5 boroughs of NY, where she clearly explained about the area, its history and present day life, and we had multiple stop offs at various locations throught the trip. The smaller group in the minibus, as opposed to a larger open top bus, led to a friendly, open and relaxed atmosphere from getting on the bus to leaving. Would highly recommend this trip for anyone wanting to see the other sides of NY away from the hustle and bustle of Times Square.

      Something festive, fun and different to do in NYC.
      We had a lot of fun on this tour. Our guide was really personable and gave us lots of NYC tidbits of information all along our ride on our way to Dyker Heights. She walked with us to make sure that we saw the best houses of the neighborhood. The night was very chilly so the comfortable, warm bus felt great after walking in the cold. There was also a bathroom on the bus, in case that's important to anyone. An enjoyable evening.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    In addition to the amazing views of the city from across the Hudson, this tour visited the location of the Hamilton-Burr duel! Since most NYC tours don't get to New Jersey they miss the amazing views from the other side and the off the beaten path places like the duel site. Our tour happened to be in both English and Spanish which was brilliant! Five stars!

    2 different address presented at email confirmation and they are not close to each other. This gives no room for people that are unfamiliar with the city to correct any mistake. Also, not enough time waiting for guest once the guide shows up. 10-15 mins would be perfect. Definitely need to improve their communication.

    We really enjoyed the nightly skyline tour with our driver/guide Millie. She was full of energy (unlike her tired passengers!) and told us many things about NY and particularly New Jersey as we spent all evening across the Hudson to enjoy the skyline as night fell and lights changed. The tour was very well organised and being in smaller group made the experience very personal.

    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.

    Daniel our guide was extremely good, explaining everything perfectly. We throughly enjoyed the sites which were chosen and to see Manhatten from a different perspective was fantastic. Each stop saw the same view change as dusk then night fell. Seeing Jerseys monument to the 911 victims was very moving, but glad to have seen it.
    We would definitely recommend this tour. Hats off to Daniel.
