Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We had a very informative and entertaining tour of the city. Gil our guide and Gustav our driver were both excellent and a credit to the company. A lot packed in to the day but hit all the key points of interest. A great day! Thanks

    Owen was our tour guide and did an awesome job on our Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island tour. He is a wrath of knowledge and made the time enjoyable with great stories and history he knew inside and out. I hesitated between doing the short version of this tour and am glad I chose the extended version as it was worth the time and money!

    Fantastic experience in every way. We were booked with pre-purchased tickets on a very rainy day with zero visibility. The staff on site were so accommodating and helped us to re-schedule our visit for the following morning. This is, by far, the best observation deck experience in Manhattan. It's a multi-sensory experience that involves more than just riding an elevator to the top of a skyscraper. The staff on site were very, very well organized in crowd control. I can't praise them enough. If it's your first visit to NYC, or even your 10th, it's a MUST.

    Helicopter was shared with 6 people plus pilot. So a bit cramped but great views . Only get best photos if sat in front or window seats. Times were changed and initially they couldn’t find the booking so worth calling and checking.
    Helicopter goes up one side and then repeats journey so both sides of helicopter can see.

    Such Incredible views of New York from the outdoor observation level. Well worth a visit. It’s such an iconic landmark. The exhibition about the construction of the Empire State Building is very innovative and interesting. I visited in late November and the queues insight weren’t too busy. Great to get to go in the 1920’s style lifts and see the Art Deco furnishings.

    An expensive luxury but worth every penny. The views of the City are brilliant and the pilot gave a clear commentary of the sights as we passed. Pre-flight is well managed and instructions clear.

    Spectacular view! I haven’t seen anything like this before. Although I must say that there were too many people and couldn’t get the best view. I was in awe of the view and overwhelmed with people.

    I would strongly recommend everyone to visit the Edge when you visit NYC!

    PS- My head is still spinning from the view lol

    Definitely reserve your tickets in advance, ideally for first entry in the morning to avoid crowds. The museum is very well done. The audio guide is superb - perhaps the best audio guide I have ever experienced in a museum.

    I really enjoyed this tour. Excellent overview of Manhattan and surrounding boroughs. Sweet pass by Lady Liberty. It was brisk on the deck (late Nov.) but comfy downstairs. Very interesting history lesson. Also, a great 2 1/2-hour respite if you've been running around the City all morning - nice to sit and absorb the majesty of NYC. Highly recommend.

    Large charter bus, we’ll heated in winter. Needed servicing but still comfortable. Bathroom was clean and smelled good. Didn’t have toilet paper or hand sanitizer/sink/soap.

    Host was friendly and hospitable.
