Mr Kim was our driver and Stehanie was our tour guide. She made it fun, informative, and gave tips on taking pictures and what's a must see in the city. I would highly recommend this tour and look forward to coming back and taking the Sex and the City tour. Thanks for a great time!

The tour was a nice way to end the day. I liked getting out to look close up at the window displays. I was disappointed we did not get out by the Rockefeller center tree area. We thought we were going to have a photo opportunity there. We did not go there during the day because we thought there would be a stop. The guide was wonderful. The driver was a pro! The bathroom on the bus was very dirty! There was no sink either!!

Great tour led by Kathryn. While we were late in the season (Jan 2nd), she did her best to get us to the best sites. Definitely recommend during the holiday season!
