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.

    Great way to view the Statue of Liberty.
    And it’s for free.
    Lots of seats inside. And decks outside to see the statue and make better photos.

    We have been to NYC more times than we can count and had never done this. Was so glad we finally took the trip. There is a machine to buy tickets when you arrive or you can use your Metro card/tap. The trip is quick and beautiful. We only took it one way and took the subway back. We walked around both ends of the island and took the free bus from end to end. Beauty at both ends including a sculpture garden. A nice almost free way to spend the afternoon.

    You know I've avoided going over to Bk because of how degraded the Subway system feels, and I don't drive. A friend invited me over to watch a game and suggested I take the Ferry. It was cool. Decent ticket price, seating, it was pretty clean, and the drop off points are close to where I needed to be. Think I've found a new way of getting out more.

    We used NYC Perfect Transportation for a return airport transfer between JFK and the Upper West Side. Charles contacted us as soon as we landed, introduced himself and provided detail around where to meet him. Having completed the customs gauntlet we met with Charles at where we had agreed to meet. Ride into the city was perfect. Charles highlighted key areas and focal points throughout the trip and made the journey seem that much quicker.
    Our return journey back to JFK was at the horrible time of 04:00am - however the driver was prompt, on time and courteous - albeit less chatty than Charles, which was understandable for the hour. The ride in was comfortable with no issues.
    On the basis of the excellent communication with the drivers, the standard of their driving and the cleanliness and comfort of the vehicles I will certainly be looking to use again for my next trip to NYC and would recommend.

    This is by far the best, most comfortable and most reliable transport to and from the airport into Manhattan. Booked the service twice in the past years and felt completely taken care of. We will definitely book again. Best service you can get!

    Quite dirty but fine - a tad confusing but got there in the end. Announcers need to be clearer. Good internet connection underneath.

    Bus gets you where you need to go. Shoutout to Jenissa for providing last minute support when I realized I had misbooked my stop 15 or so minutes before it was due to arrive. Thank you!

    I cannot say enough good things about this car service! We arrived to the airport in style!! It was a very smooth and comfortable ride for 7 people with luggage.

    The driver was prompt and very communicative! He was dressed in a suit, very professional.

    We took two taxi’s from the airport and the price of that was comparable to the price of this service and it was 150% safer and comfortable!!

    I am definitely going to use them in the future!!

    My wife and I used the Pocono Daytripper's for a tour of local winery's the week of new years. We had a blast. Clyde, our driver for the day, was awesome. If you are considering using the Pocono Daytripper, just do it. You wont regret it.

    My son had a day off from school so I took the day off from work and got us tickets to the Intrepid so he wasn't home all day staring at a screen. I never take the ferry across the river because the train or the tunnel (if driving) are much more convenient and cheaper. The downtown stop is a better stop closer to the action but the midtown stop is only good if you are going to Javitz or the Intrepid.

    The cost is too much, the journey is on a less frequent schedule than the train and the parking at Port Imperial is also too much.

    So yeah, if this is your first time or if you are a local showing someone the city, this is a nice journey. If you want in and out quickly, take a train.

    We are visitors who stayed in Jersey City and spent the weekend in NYC. I wanted to offer our specific feedback regarding PATH's SmartLink cards, as out-of-towners who visit NYC once in a great while.
    - SmartLink cards are much more expensive than the MetroCard cards used for NYC transit.
    - MetroCard works on PATH trains.
    - SmartLink does NOT work on NYC transit (MTA buses, NYC subway).
    - PATH has a very limited number of stops in NYC.
    As a visitor, you will likely use PATH twice a day, likely to land either at the WTC or at 33rd & Broadway, then, likely, you will walk hours because Manhattan is an awesomely walkable place, and, likely, you will wish you could take a bus back to that PATH station that is hours away.
    SmartLink is good for commuters, visitors should use MetroCard.

    What a wonderful experience we had with NYC Rich Limo. Absolutely 5 Star and no hidden costs , what I was quoted was exactly what I was charged
    The Limo from the airport was exceptional, champagne on ice and friendly punctual driver Lincoln
    Then a fabulous SUV for our tour of the city and dinner in DUMBO our driver Natanael was really knowledgeable and knew the best places for photos and dining
    For the airport return yet another top quality SUV with a larger trunk to accommodate all the luggage and extra shopping driven again by Natanael who is a top Chauffuer, very well presented, informative and nothing was ever too much trouble for him
    If you’re looking for an excellent Limo and car service in New York then don’t look any further than these guys
