DEFINITELY WORTH THE MONEY – I read other reviews before posing my review.And I have to say, the tours to me are what I expected.But one thing you must do,and that's ask questions,but not when a tour guide is conducting the tour,as I experienced during my trip.
Also, I have a comment to the person about some of the buses leaving half empty. The reason for that is to accomodate other passengers at other stops.The Grayline company is pretty big,and sometimes tourist coming to NYC are overwelming,especially during the summer months.And also around the Independence Day Holiday. And also, NYC is a big city.And in a big city,you have traffic.Something I experienced during my tour. The rush hour here is nothing compared to other cities.I couldn't believe the tour guide when she told me that close to 5 million people travel to NYC for work,from the outer boroughs and NYC. Now that's alot of people. There is another tour bus company with similar type of buses,but those buses didn't have a downstairs like Grayline. And it looked like those buses don't offer air conditioning like our bus. ANd if it rains where could you go on those buses. Anyway,my favorite tour was the Uptown Loop.
ANd I also saw that all the tour guides are different. But luckily,I had the good ones on all my loops. The best part, I got to ride on a double-decker bus,and didn't have to go all the way to London to do it.
