It was truly a unique experience to celebrate New Year in New York City. It was truly a lifetime experience. The new year night was never this much beautiful and fantastic. I joined this tour with my friends. There were thousands of people and nonstop fun and excitement. The fireworks were simply awesome and memorable. We took so many beautiful pictures and films of the beautiful sky, it was full of lights and colorful shades. I wish the fireworks lasted longer.
My research of months for the perfect tour resulted in this tour form. It was certainly a perfect one. I joined the group in this tour and felt so good and had great fun. I enjoyed Applebee Party of Times Square NYC a lot. It was full of fun. I must say that New Year celebrations were full of energy and entertainment. I even enjoyed bus travel because of lovely music of my choice. Bus driver and tour guide were also looking like a part of our group in making New Year fun. It was all sweet!
What I enjoyed the most was fun and skyline views from New York Sightseeing Countdown Dinner Cruise. Music was in class with many hits of my choice. Groups were there to enjoy. We had group meals together. I loved this because people with different tastes were served in an excellent way. On time services were very appreciable. Would definitely travel on this bus service.
This New Year celebration was a fun. I enjoyed this tour and New Year celebrations along with my family. While heading towards Times Square we enjoyed all street performance and great music. New Year street celebrations before countdown were so admirable. Tour services were really a good example of a very good management. We all family; had an amazing time and loved the New Year countdown fun along with New Year celebrations. Thanks
My co-partners of this trip were of different ages but we felt the same in making fun and enjoying New Year countdown celebrations. So, many charming people, younger and older it didn't really matter, all were excited about New Year celebrations. My tour guide was simply fun and enthusiastic. The management of services ant its planning to enjoy New Year celebrations was of different choices. I loved experiencing Applebee Party and its fun in the form of food, music, and dance, it was all simply lovable.
The tour was just ok. I was expecting more excitement and fun. Time Square is full of people. It was so crowded; we came early so we get close enough to the stage. Performances and shows were good but no good music. Food was ok. The big concern was the toilet; toilets were untidy and unable to use. On the second day, we visited the main places and the best part was the cruise tour. The tour guide was very informative and helpful.
