After or before the show enjoy a Holiday window tour of the Famous NY department stores display and see the Famous Rockefeller Christmas Tree. Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree has been a nati...

    Rockettes were great. Your company didn't notify that the window tour was at 10 am on Wednesday and due to our flight time we could not make that. Due to an illness of an employee you didn't offer it on Thursday so I didn't get the full value of what I purchased. Could not do it on Friday cause I had booked another 9/11 tour with you. I really derserve some type of compensation. At this point I would not recommend your services.

    The downtown bus was great but the uptown bus wasn’t on cue when we passed specific sites. It would talk about them too early and when we reached them they were already talking about something else.

    With the New York Explorer pass, we selected the 7 most important sights. Then I started planning the days. I got to know the subway and bus transportation in New York and planned where and how to go. Now I’m nearing the end and enjoying it more and more. I’ve been to the U.S. several times, but I’ve avoided big cities by far so far. However, I was in almost every National Park. I think we will enjoy that too.

    Our tour guide was Jenn. She was amazing! I was in a wheelchair presenting special challenges to Jenn. She was able to make it so my husband and I were able to enjoy the whole tour and not miss anything. Her knowledge, respect, and love for New York shine through and made the tour so interesting. Her ability to answer any question we threw at her was incredible. The best thing besides the beauty of New York was her ability to make our group a little family. The 6 of us left with info about each other and new friendships including our new friendship with Jenn. I highly recommend this tour and I definitely recommend asking for Jenn as your guide.
