  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Best guided tour ever! We only had one day for activities as we were in town for a short period before a cruise. This was a fantastic decision! We got to see everything we wanted, it was a small group, and we were driven and guided by our guide every step of the way!

    Our tour guide Guy was THE BEST! Super engaging, knowledgeable, accommodating, funny and just FUN!

    We highly recommend this tour and a big thank you to Guy for making our trip extra memorable!

    The views of the city through the floor to ceiling windows are stunning and the multi leveled central area was mind blowing with its’ mirrored walls, reflective floors and infinity style swirled ceiling. Stepping out over the city in the clear box is a once in a lifetime experience. The terrace was a wonderful way to complete the visit with one more final outdoor walk and panoramic view of the city. There is no better place to take unforgettable photos. Don’t pass up an opportunity to visit Summit One Vanderbilt.

    We loved this tour!!!!
    The boat is beautiful, Doug, the tour leader was funny, knew New York having grown up there, and kept us entertained ed and informed for the whole trip. The crew were amazing too, drinks being served, photos taken by your members so the wife and I could be in the pic together.
    Was well worth the cost and was the highlight of our recent trip.
    Amazing views, amazing team, brilliant memories built!!!! Thank you!!!

    Sean was absolutely the best tour guide! He had so much knowledge and he and took the time for all of us. He gave us time to shop and stop to listen to his story and rest from walking

    If it’s been some time since your last visit, give this icon another date! The Empire State Building has had a glow-up that makes the experience better and more comfortable for guests of all ages, including entertainment while in line for the views. I was pleasantly impressed and surprised.

    Ryan was wonderful. The places he chose were diverse and fun. I would have liked a little more history. My husband would have liked one more stop on the tour

    Tim was awesome, personable, engaging, and super friendly. Enjoyed our tour immensely, was very informative and educational considering the circumstances surrounding such a horrible tragedy.

    Also expressed upon us the immeasurable resiliency of the city of New York and their citizens.

    Appreciated the clippings he collected and showed us for added context.

    Excellent organisation. Pickup at Linden train station is perfect. Manhattan view with all the lights is amazing. Just the right length of trip

    It was good but not mind blowing - I expected the glass standing area to be bigger and clear - instead it had a pattern which took the edge off….

    Jorge was a great guide!!! And a lot of information, very friendly. Do this tour while you’re in New York. No regrets. I would not do corny Island it’s just amusement and beach. you would skip and walk back from there to Manhattan. And save a little money.

    What a great way to see so much of NYC in a short amount of time! The pilot pointed out so many sights on each side of the Hudson, New York and New Jersey.
