    My wife and I have never been to New York's Central Park before, and admit to having kind of a "fantasy version" of what a horse and carriage ride would be like through this big park, amazingly reserved from Skyscraper City all around it. Turns out the 'fantasy version' in our heads resembled very closely our experience! We were late in the day, and our carriage was a little later than the reservation - BUT we were contacted by phone well ahead to inform us they were running late. We have no problem with running late - but hate it when we stand around wondering. THANK YOU for being good communicators! We browsed elsewhere until we got the call you were ready. Then the tour was FANTASTIC! We were introduced to Molly (our horse) by Ollie (our guide) and Ollie chatted with us through out the tour. Not TOO much chat - we were able to just sit back and enjoy the ride - but Ollie had interesting things to tell us about our surroundings. We appreciated ample opportunities for photos, and the great courtesy extended to us throughout the experience. Beautiful sunny evening, just the right amount of people visiting the park, perfect pace for seeing all the park, punctuated by the clop-clop-clop of the horse's hooves. It was surreal - my wife and I sat back and felt a bit like royalty, surveying the kingdom. That lasted until the trip was over and we were back on foot on New York sidewalks, but hey, - it was a WONDERFUL Carriage Ride - thanks Ollie, and Molly!

    Oscar was our guide and we had a phenomenal experience. He was informative and funny, incredibly entertaining. Central Park was beautiful and we had a wonderful time.

    This tour was a perfect way to see a lot of Central Park. Unless you know your way around you’d never be able to cover this much ground. Michael had a great balance of history, humor, details about the trees and construction, statues, photo ops, and even had some excellent tips on other things to see in the city. He’s great! The tour is great!

    Guide was very helpful & informative- coach was comfortable and driver, Harold a great character-Plenty of loo stops :-) Overnight Hotel in Canada very comfortable and literally a few minutes walk from the falls- The only thing I have to complain about was we were not given an itinerary when we booked, so although the trip description mentioned shopping, we didn't realise until we got there that it was at a huge shopping outlet ( called Waterloo) If we had been forewarned, we could've got more organised i.e.Xmas pressies etc.- Apart from that we had a great trip and would absolutely recommend

    The driver was pleasant and very informative we enjoyed her allot… she was very nice in taken plenty memories pictures. …. One thing I think this company should focus is to have the carriages more appealing, they seem run down .. the seat part cushions was loose and it looked as the the carriage needed painted … other than that it was a great experience.

    Wettest, coldest day of the trip, so what to do? simple, take the Electric Bike Tour. Met at the northern end of Central Park (West 110th St). Tour took us through Morningside, Riverside and along the Hudson to Battery Park. Our tour guide was the remarkable Bob - endlessly knowledgeable and great fun. Be sure to take the trip early and ask for "Best of Bob" - you will be well rewarded with more to see. Three and a half hours flew past.

    Will repeat this one.

    We had such an amazing time on this vacation. We wanted to get away from NYC and see some of the fall foliage. There is so much included in this get-a-way- Watkins Glenn (small hike), Niagara Falls, Toronoto, St. Lawrence River and 1,000 Islands. Our tour guide, Ben, was phenomenal and knew so much about the history of the region, even as a New Yorker I learned so much. Our driver, Curt, was fabulous and they both saved us so much time by ensuring the best choices were made along the way. Niagara Falls is so stunning and the Maid in the Midst tour is overwhelming by it's power and beauty. It's great to explore this wonderful state of ours.

    This trip from Empire Vacations is good. BUT But!!! If booking through Viator beware.

    The Saturday tour does not go to Niagara Falls first. If you want to start and finish in NYC than ok, but if like us you choose to skip the drive from Washington back to NYC and continue your holiday in DC, it wont happen from the tour starting Saturday. You will spend your time on the bus searching the internet trying to work out how to get to Washington from Niagara Falls. Viator are aware, we have told them and asked them to update their info, but 1 month on it still hasn’t happened. Viator has credited our card a partial refund of @ 1/6th.
    So if you book direct with Empire Vacations you should get the dates and tours correct. The hotel rooms were large and the beds comfortable. Jutta was a great guide and super helpful also making sure we were at Capitol Hill way before a demonstration was supposed to be happening plus she had plans in place if there was trouble. Our next guide Peter (you swap to another bus ie 2 x 2day tours)... Well... we were not fans of Peter.

    Have to say overall it was a real money saver. We bought a 3 day pass and we saw everything we wanted to see. I would definitely recommend, worth the price. But I do recommend you plan carefully. We did Downtown on day one, Midtown on day 2, and Uptown on day 3. That worked excellently. Of course how you break it down, depends on were your hotel is located. Also some things don't require a tour so don't waste time trying to schedule a tour. For example, Central Park, Liberty island, High line, Times Square. Just use common sense. NYC is a lot of fun. Pass was worth it.
