I was hoping that we could be more fun and relaxing for us. Whether we spent all day in New York visiting and enjoying the top-notch landmarks that reside in the heart of the city. WhatsApp message crowd of people and we quickly back off and dismissed visiting The Time square. The management should be aware of this fact that x square is always busy in an afternoon so we should choose another time to visit Time square. Although there is not a much exciting attraction in times square rather than the brand stores cinemas and hipster attractions which are completely out of my nature. I really wanted to show my kids the Wall Street of New York as well as the central part of New York. However, all the places we visited are around than Central Park and to bed, we couldn't just enter the area of the path and see what it's like. Thanks for making my weekend so amazing with my kids. good days.

We always wanted to go explore the true nature of New York City. In fact, the city is large with so many wonderful places for the visitors to explore. One thing I don't understand is that the tour bus started the tour from Boston City and we started towards the New York city now both the cities have a huge distance between them we first travel to New York visited the locations down there and then be moved back to Boston. I think someone should revise this time table and fit all the accessible entities which ultimately provide a luxurious experience to all the visitors on board. The tour guide told us to take the Hudson river cruise which got closer to the statue of liberty it was nice to see the statue up close and I have never seen that statue up that close. It was such a nice tour with everything New York has to offer is scheduled on this tour. good days!

I have read somewhere that the one world trade Centre is a symbol of New York State at that time, I didn't understand what exactly that means. by taking this to her we realize that the one world trade Centre is the tallest building in the country. And the good thing is that we happened to explore the tallest observatory at the one world trade Centre, it showed us the breathtaking views of the New York and surrounding regions. we loved exploring the statue of liberty crossing the Time square although he spends such a little time at times square but it was all worth it since we don't have much time to spend it at one location the time table was huge and we have to not waste any single second. the transportation on this tour was really nice the buses were huge and all the people were excited about this tour although there was massive diversity on board with us people from all around the world came to board on this tour and see what the New York city has to offer. We love the to days and we would like to thank all the members who made this journey so wonderful.

I remember the time when we entered the one world observatory on the top floor of world trade Centre, the expensive tickets about 40 dollars was pretty much the thing I was avoiding. We also paid for the Madame Tussauds New York museum as well as we paid for liberty cruise and the aircraft carrier site. We wanted this tour to be more expensive so we could explore the Boston City as well. it was the early morning time when we started the tour and headed towards the New York we spent all day there and return in the evening to Boston we could have explored that city if we had some more time. I just love the attractions on this tour.

My kids enjoyed the tour. I specifically booked it for my kids for the weekend and I am glad they enjoyed it. They went to New York for the first time and fell in love with the city. We got enough time at each location and were able to sightsee the places. It was not like a normal all rush rush tour. I will recommend it.

We knew that we could not visit the entire New York city in just one day. Despite the New York city being the largest in the country who started out on this tour from Boston which included all the great places in New York city first who is made the stock at one world trade Centre it was a huge building also the tour guide told us that it is the tallest in the world we got excited and visited the top floor observatory it was nice to see all the views of New York and the neighboring we didn't waste single second on this bus to hurt rather would try to visit and enjoy each didn't waste single second on this bus to hurt rather would try to visit and enjoy each and every second that we have in a day in New York. We also made stock at US Intrepid, which is a former military aircraft carrier and now it is open for the visitor is displaying the variety of aircraft. Madame Tussaud is a spectacular museum with spectacular exhibits of wax sculptures we have a shortage of time so we quickly wind up the tour and travel bag to Boston where we have to take the flight and reach back home.

New York City trip is wonderful! Easy-to-navigate website for reserving. The Goldenbustours was waiting for us even before we arrived on time. Our driver was friendly and informative, and it was a beautiful ride through New York on my boyfriend\'s birthday! We will do this again on our next trip to NYC!

This is the second opportunity to see NYC, yet it is the first run through to see the Empire State and Statue of Liberty. Truly worth spending every penny and fun time. Guide and driver was very decent and they took care of everything belonging to the tour. Good Job GoldenBus!
