Fun ride. Seeing places that we couldn't/wouldn't walk to.

Signed w/3rd party for specific date/time. Didn't review e-mail stating my specified time was not available and showed up for the tour. Driver stated had to go to 39th St. from 45th St. to get tickets and he would hold the bus for the 3 of us. By way of radio contact, the driver learned we would be on the next tour and not to wait. All ended OK and the ride was good. Just had a problem with a third party booking.
