A fantastic tour, the pace is not too slow not too fast, you see all the boroughs adequately with multiple photo breaks and toilet breaks. Jorge provides continuous commentary with stories and fun/movie facts for each neighbourhood. He tells you what the real deal is and background of the neighbourhoods. Its like listening to a story. Short tour 8:30 to 1:30 so you have most of the day still to do other things. Charging points available in bus. Very polite driver. I couldn’t recommend it enough, you’d not be able to cover all boroughs in so much depth without such expert guidance. So if you have half a day - do it, the price is really really reasonable too.

Версаль шикарный!!! Прекрасное место для посещения!!! Рекумендую!!!

Very organized. Our prebooked tix led us straight to the entrance line where they take your pics for purchase. Concession stand was fast with service. Bathrooms clean. We enjoyed the outdoor seating. Guide was informative. We didn’t go under the Brooklyn bridge which was advertised so that was a lil disappointing cuz I was expecting it. Pier 83 was easy to access from our hotel in Chelsea. We walked from there to Times Square no problem . Love the GetYourGuide app. It had all info I needed before the tour

Es una maravilla de palacio y unos jardines muy bien cuidado.

Amazing experience! Our guide, Audrey (sorry if I misspelled your name) was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, witty, a great storyteller and I think was having fun herself doing the tour :) I love tours which give you insight beyond what your eyes can see and this one definitely fulfils that! Would even do it again :) Greetings, Jakub

This tour was fantastic! Would recommend to anyone visiting NYC for a short trip!

Great experience! Boat was a little bit too crowded.
