Quintessential New York

This tour was the highlight of our stay in New York. They were a great company to communicate with while in New York and their service was outstanding. They were flexible and professional. The car was so much fun. In fact we became the tourist attraction for New Yorkers - nothing subtle about this big red convertible! People would wave and check out the car as we drove around. The tour itself was a great introduction to the different areas of New York. We received lots of information that was personal and interesting. It was a memorable and fabulous tour where we felt like rock stars. A big red convertible, blue skies, the Brooklyn bridge....this is what we talk about when describe New York. The photos are great. It was worth every cent. A far cry from the morning's gospel tour and display of mass and crass tourism! Thanks Isaac - next time we would love to do Brooklyn with you.

This is the way to get acquainted with New York!

As this is was our first visit to New York and having read other's reviews, we decided to treat ourselves to this tour. I'm so glad we did. We opted for a Sunday morning and chose right - unusually for New York the streets were virtually empty and our guide managed to show us a few extra sights as were not caught up in traffic. The car is great and onlookers seem to like it too - a few people even took our photo! Our chauffeur was informative and we managed to see Greenwich Village, Little Italy, Chinatown, the financial district, SoHo, Tribeca and then drove over the Brooklyn Bridge to get some great photos of the Manhatten skyline from Brooklyn. If your feeling indulgent and like us, only had a short time in the city, then I would most definitely recommend this tour - it is our most treasured memory of our holiday.

Amazing!

We did a Sunday morning tour with Isaac and had the best time ever! It already started with the call from New York Fun Tours early in the morning to provide some final details such as the name and cell phone number of our driver. When we indicated that we were planning on having breakfast at the Cornelia Street Cafe, they were kind enough to inform us that the cafe would not open until 10, so that we had to find another place for breakfast. At their recommendation we went to Grey's Dog Coffee, which provided a very good start of the day. After breakfast, we met Isaac for our tour. The weather was amazing: blue skies, lots of sun, but a bit chilly (end of November....). A perfect day for cruising New York in a red oldtimer convertible! Isaac is a very experienced tour guide with a great sense of humor! He really knows a lot about the city, its buildings and its people. Two in our group were first time visitors and one was a local, but all of us learned a lot! I would definitely recommend this tour to both tourists and locals. There is no better way to see the city than from the back of an oldimer convertible! Great value for money and an unforgettable experience!

What a Ride and a Guide!

Oh-My-Gosh! There were 4 ladies from South Georgia enjoying New York City. This was our first tour. We had the wonderful experience to see New York both during the afternoon and twilight hours in the open-air of a red convertible. It was breath-taking and our guide, Isaac, was even more awesome. Thanks for such a delightful time, great information and caring about over New York experience. We will return and definitely see you again. Your "Old-new, South Georgia Friends"

The Way To See New York!

Isaac is fantastic! A true New Yorker with terrific knowledge and a great tour guide style. The car is a real head-turner too, which is saying something in NYC. This isn't an introductory tour - this is for seeing the sights that everyone else will miss. Imagine your cool cousin lives in NY and offers to take you around in a great car - that is the experience. I would definitely recommend for those not really into large groups or herd mentaility. If you prefer something a little different, take this tour. A convertible makes a huge difference in a city like this. It is the best way to appreciate manhattan and brooklyn for that matter. You see some history, exceptional vantage points and learn lots of factoids along the way. Live a little; it will be one of the highlights of your trip to NYC.

Definitely something to try!

I booked the tour as a surprise for my boyfriend, and it was definitely worth it! We live in New York City, but wanted to learn more about the culture and history behind it. Our tour of downtown Manhattan and Brooklyn lasted for about 2 hours, and we enjoyed ourselves in the convertible and nice weather. The tour guide we had, Isaac, was as funny as he was informative. He was eager to teach us all he knew, and carried on a conversation with us throughout the tour. People were constantly checking out the car as we were checking out the sights. The things we learned in the tour were unique and interesting, and we took some fun pictures along the way. It was a memorable experience and we definitely recommend it to our family and friends, as well as anyone who is thinking about taking the tour.

Best Part of Our Trip!

This trip was by far the best part of our trip to New York City. Isaac was so knowledgeable and fun during the tour that we felt like we were with an old friend. The tour route made us love New York City much more than our preconceived thoughts of just Manhattan. We never felt rushed, we always felt safe and it was by far the highlight of our trip. So much better than a Limo with a ceiling!! How else do you expect to look up at the buildings? It was fabulous.

The best way to see the unfamiliar side of NYC
Mon, Aug 27, 07   8:15 PM evejohnson Female 20-29 International Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
We chose to do our tour on our first night. Although we were a bit tired touring around in the convertible the first night gave us a great feel for the city and gave us our bearings. Going across to Brooklyn at night was something we really wanted to do so we could see the skyline all lit up. Being driven across the Brooklyn Bridge in a convertible is definitely the way to do it! Our guide was fantastic and gave us some really great tips on restaurants and bars in Greenwich. If you sick of the usual tourist buses and tours this is an excellent alternative.

Great, Informational and Beautiful Look at NYC
Sat, Aug 4, 07   9:15 PM fagans4 Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
The tour was wonderful and Isaac sure knows lower Manhattan. Our children -- 9 and 11 -- may have been a little young, especially for the 9:15 p.m. start. Overall, it was a unique way to explore -- and learn about -- some parts of the City we wouldn't have been able to on our own. Isaac was very accommodating and helpful. We've already told lots of people about this very special evening.
