A essência da América. Adorei o tour, excelente para conhecer melhor parte da história dos Estados Unidos. Muito bem organizado, com audiobooks em várias línguas. Vista fabulosa sobre Manhattan! Se voltar a NY vou repetir este tour!

MAKE SURE YOU MAKE RESERVATIONS TO GO ONTO THE PLATFORM, these tickets do not include it and by the time we got there they did not have tickets. Otherwise everything else was way more than expected, such a great experience.
