  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.

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.

    The tour was super informative and easy. There's always a concern when doing subway tours, but Rayn was amazing in sharing unique facts and details about the city's subway system. Definitely a tour to try out if you are curious! Great for kids as well.

    An amazing and enjoyable bike trip. Lukus Herbert as our tour guide was well informed, flexible and continually accommodating in helping us with the planning and execution of the trip. His recommended "Ride with GPS" navigation system allowed us to enjoy the sights without being preoccupied with a map. His hotel recommendations were good and he conveniently provided our rented bikes in route and picked them up as we returned. His being available daily to answer question we very helpful. I would strongly recommend Gotham Bicycle Tours for this trip.

    Our tour guide, Rayn, was excellent. He was so knowledgeable, funny, and engaging while managing our group during a tour of Penn Station. I’m a daily commuter into Penn and I learned a ton on this tour that I’ll always remember. I’d highly recommend Rayn and his positively charming tours.

    I’ve lived in New York City for 14 years and Rayn gave me a whole new perspective on a subway system I thought I knew.

    Small spaces that I’ve only ever hurried through, Rayn slowed us down and explained how choices made 50 or 100 years ago explain the system we have of today. I really liked how he focused it not wholly on the past but specifically on explaining how the past informs today. No spoilers but one of the big reveals was how there’s so much unused infrastructure right below the street it’s astounding!

    I also really liked learning about small details like why some light bulbs are a slightly different shade of blue or why train cars have a vertical cable between them. Rayn is fantastic guide and I can’t recommend it enough.

    This shouldn’t be calling a tour. When arrived in NY there’s nothing off the train telling you where to go, you have to take a taxi to get to the spot then you have to wait for the bus to start the viewing. I got off sight 8 to see the Trade center after 1 hr when back to continue the sightseeing stood at the stop for 1 hr bus never showed up. The big red bus came by every 5mn the iconic bus did not I didn’t want to miss the train back to DC I took a taxi back to train station and change my return ticket. At the end I only spent 3hrs in the big Apple. Did not redeem the food voucher did not enjoy it. Worst tour to book
