We were fortunate to have Scott (aka Man Bun) and Anna- I think (aka Single and Ready to Mingle) both who are liberal art majors who use their degrees to be bus tour guides. Let your kids know to get a technical degree. However; this was a very very entertaining experience. Not

I always try to be balanced when reading reviews - looking at the good and the bad. But just as important is the responses I read from management. I have to say, I was excited about potentially doing this activity until I read the responses from management. These are ALL so

Thank you for this, Deb. We sincerely appreciate your feedback on our teams' responses. I know that asking you to reconsider your stance based on what you've read is a tall order. But I can assure you that the five-star reviews detailed here are well-earned. What we find with many, many of these one-star reviews is a total disregard for policy and product description. A significant portion of our reviewers have already gone through our call center and when they didn't receive a full refund for a policy they agreed to, they threaten us with a negative review. Now, TripAdvisor does a wonderful job at helping us sift through reviews posted only to "force" us to fully refund a charge. Those posts violate their terms. And to be honest, we can get really "New York" on a lot of these posts simply because it's not the first time we've answered them. But you're right. We could stand to lighten up a little. Especially considering how much fun our shows are. On behalf of our team, I apologize for the tone in some of our more frustrated responses. And I further know that there is little I could say to sway you to give us a shot through my own response here to you now. But I do believe in our product and I do believe that if you find some free time in your vacation schedule to give us a shot, you'll really, really enjoy yourself. Again, I want to thank you for your feedback. And we do hope to see you soon on THE RIDE!

I thought this was an amazing tour. The ride was smooth and the guide knowledgeable. We got to see parts of NY city we might not have seen otherwise. The best part of me was the Guide. He was so funny and interactive. He explained everything about the area but made it fun. I

We enjoyed the ride, plenty to see. Tim was out guide and he shared a lot of facts. He talked a lot, and he was also quite funny. However, if he would slow down talking, it would help. Understanding everything is easier that way. But that was the only comment I have.
