The tour was good and enjoyed every bit of it however I think the driver was rash at time and there were some old people along with us on the tour as well who got panicked couple of times. So driving aspect should be improved, apart from that everything went well.

Really enjoyed this short 3 day tour of New York City, though I am a New Yorker myself however did not had the chance of exploring my own city in such a wonderful manner. The tourism services were great and destinations were mind blowing. The best part of the tour for me was the bus service.
