I easily exchanged my voucher for a ticket at the specified location shortly after 8 a.m. in the morning. I started the downtown tour right at 9 a.m. Then immediately the Uptown. This was also a good thing, because by midday there were very long queues at the bus stops, at least in Times Square. Both routes were good and interesting for me as this is my first time in New York. If you want to get a first impression this tour is good. However, I personally think the price is a bit too expensive. Up to 10€ less would be reasonable. Otherwise the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Nice visit

The principle is excellent. The stops don't enrich. The magnificent views .... The only negative point: their ticket: a receipt with a flash code. A gust of wind and I lost one in 3. Our visit ended there. They never wanted to reissue us a ticket for my daughter. We didn't do it Uptown. Just downtown.

Everything went perfectly

The email contained all the important information, like the meeting point etc. The only thing I'd criticize is that they didn't describe which tours we could take. We had to find that out from another provider. How interesting the tour itself is really depends on the tour guide. We took the Uptown tour with a really nice tour guide. We really recommend the night tour. The Brooklyn tour was the most boring one, but that was the guide's fault. All in all really recommend it!
