Our English tour would have been cancelled today if it hadn’t been for Stefan who was taking the German tour stepping in. He was fantastic, switching between German and English. The tour was interesting and informative. Even though we have visited NY before, we still saw things we had not seen before and learnt new and interesting facts. Well done Stefan and thank you to the German ladies for allowing us to join your tour - Danke

The bus tour is highly recommended. You should do it on the first day, because you get a perfect overview of Manhattan and can then put together your tours for the other days. Our guide was Stefan, highly recommended. We were 7 people in our group on a small bus. It was very nice that you got out again and again during the tour, e.g. Central Park, Madison Square Park, Brooklyn Brigde, Wallstreet, WTC (with breaks for going to the toilet).
