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.

    Daniel was a fun and energetic guide although it was clear english wasnt his mother tongue but his personality made up for it, theres room for improvement for the explanations on the bus

    Bus was way too hot and lacking in ventilation, but it has a toilet

    The suburb itself is beautiful and some of the decos we saw definitely is the best in terms of how committed the house owners are, and here you will understand what christmas should feel like

    The only downside was the streets become quite packed with tourists like us (like, times square kind of packed) especially around the really awesome crazy decos

    It will be very difficult to find a suburb anywhere in the world that can match this, and the story behind the 'why' is really one of a kind. Every visitor to NYC during christmas shd go on this tour

    I just felt bad to the actual residents for ruining their neighbourhood lol

    Really lovely day seeing some of the “real” NYC. Tom was extremely entertaining and helped make it a great day. Some interesting sites we wouldn’t have normally visited and lots of photo opportunities

    The coach was comfortable as we were allocated seats with extra legroom, the windows were clean and allowed a good view of the lovely autumn colours. It was a very long trip with only one thirty minute stop each way.
    There was an onboard toilet but it was very crude and not clean.
    The Falls were spectacular of course and the boat ride was well organised. There was not much time left to explore and it was mostly taken up with trying to find the meeting point.

    Very knowledgeable. The bus takes you to many different places in the city. You get to see a lot. Be prepared to walk though bc it stops at places so you get a real feel. Tickets were not super clear. There are many bus tours that meet in same area. Look for USA guided tours. Absolutely recommend!

    Dyker heights was soo pretty!! We booked a white limo with my friends last week and were shocked by the beauty of NYC in winter. Limo was so comfy and luxurious with drinks and all and the reservation process was pretty fast and the dispatcher really flexible with us. They helped us with everything, since we were a little scared in the beginning but they made it an unforgettable experience!!!
    It was a dream come true ❤️❤️❤️

    Where to start! Well firstly in my opinion if you want to see New York with a true New Yorker, a fountain of knowledge and a wonderful personality then look no further. Our experience was truly fabulous.

    From the moment Sheldon collected us I knew we were in for something special and he didn’t disappoint ! I don’t think there is anything Sheldon doesn’t know about New York! His delivery and humour is an absolute treat!

    The cars Sheldon uses are luxurious and extremely comfortable, the driver gets you up close to the various sights and it’s just a lovely and special way to see the city up close and personal. We spent 10 hours with sheldon and although prior to this tour you may wonder if the cost is worth it, well i can tell you it is worth every penny!

    Sheldon will give you an overview of New York and then you can make a decision over where you want to go back and visit in your own time. I suggest you go out with a Sheldon at the start of your New York visit which then leaves you time to do this!

    I just want to take this opportunity to thank Sheldon and his team for an amazing experience and won’t hesitate to recommend him to all 😀

    Very nice tour - the tour guide was very funny! We got to see so many places to… excellent service. The only reason I didn’t give a 5 is because they need a microphone so the whole bus can hear

    We did the NYC movie and tv tour, which I would definitely recommend. Our tour guide, Alex, did a great job. He was fun, friendly, and knew plenty about all the sites we went to see. Most of the tour is via bus, which was large and comfortable. We were able to go all around Manhattan and see many major sites. We also got off the bus a few times and had time (not a ton) to take pics. The tour is about 2+ hours long which was a good length. I would recommend!

    Fabulous tour- the whole family enjoyed it- the bus ride to Brooklyn was so informative and full of snippets of facts and information about the districts we passed through- yes it’s pricey but we had so much more for our money
