Empire State and 9/11 Memorial

One of our most memorable experiences. Rained only in the morning and the tour was not cancelled. We had the tour guide all to ourselves for the day. She was great! I highly recommend this tour.

Disappointing not worth the MONEY
, Aug 2019
This tour was a total rip off. They mention VIP to empire state building, but it's not. you get in first cos you line up at 730am and wait til it opens at 8am, so of course your first in but it's not VIP just standard ticket. It was more like a self guided tour, guide was there with us but left us to own device MY suggestion people DO THIS TOUR ON YOUR OWN, you will save hundreds your tickets online to all the attractions (skip the line) and use tube and ferry to get there. I felt totally ripped off with this tour
A+ for Heidi!

We had a great time on our tour. First time to NYC as a family and Heidi did a great job! She was personable, professional and shared so much information. We were really impressed. She was liked by all employees at the venues visited. Had a nice rapport with all. Would love to tour with Heidi again.
Well thought out tour

This was a very well constructed and organised tour which covered 3 major NY attractions. In addition the tour guide was very good and added to the overall experience. Highly recommend it.

We were there when instructed. They didn't show up for the tour. We waited 2 hours.This was our first time in New York. We couldn't get a hold of anyone. No one would answer the phone. We were only in New York a day before our cruise. I still can't get anyone to answer the phone or to call me back. We didn't get to see any of the attractions. We were out the money and didn't get to see anything. 2 weeks later still no response.
