Fantastic ride with Niko & Jack! Despite a bit of rainy weather at the beginning, it was still very enjoyable; Niko was very informative and shared old and new pictures of each landmark as we came across them. The short stops were welcome and allowed for additional pictures to be taken. Will remember this as a highlight of our trip to NYC!
