The Big Apple, The City That Never Sleeps, The Cultural Capital of the World... whatever you call New York City, its impact on worldwide culture and business is undeniable. Seeing this famous metropolis is something no one ever forgets!

  • Discovered by a farmer after his cattle wandered into the entrance to cool down, the Secret Caverns are a kitschy and odd alternative to the nearby larger enterprise, Howe Caverns. A 103-step staircase is the only way in or out

The only issue I felt is with pick-up and drop-off. We boarded the bus shuttle from East Brunswick and were planning to get down in NYC, take the NJ Transit train and get back to Princeton junction. But, our tour manager decided to end the tour in Jersey City, so getting back to home from Jersey City was a thing, especially when you stay 1 hour from it and that to after 8 pm. So if you are planning to go the tour anywhere south of Edison, make sure that you plan your drop off properly and think of ways to reach back home.

Wonderful tour. Sight seeing spots covered were excellent, especially Maid of the Mist. Tour guide Suki Wang was professional, punctual, informative & friendly. Accommodation was very good.

All in all, the tour was okay. We were transported with the bus to Niagara, to the accomodation, to the attractions, and back to Manhattan. (Here I must add that the AC on the bus was set to freezing cold, especially at the back of the bus. We felt really cold). Niagara Falls was great to see. A beauty of nature. With our tour guide we were not satisfied at all. He was surely well organized, but neither friendly, nor kind. Whenever we were going to reach a stop during our travel he always spoke to the microphone quite loud and woke us up roughly. Instead he could have whispered first to the microphone to gently wake up all of us. He was very strict regarding the time (which is good on one hand) but there was no kindness in his voice. When he was collecting all the fee for the attractions, he did not even ask us which attractions we wanted to see. He just told: That's 'X' dollars/person. Then I had to kindly tell him we only want to participate in SOME of the optional attractions, not ALL of them. We were not informed of the Maid of the Mist tour will be on the first day, just when we arrive to Niagara Falls. This way we didn't have the chance to take out our slippers from the luggage. So our shoes were totally soaked by the end of the boat tour. And what really made us mad is the very late arrival back to Manhattan. We started our whole tour already late on the first day. This way I would expect skipping on of the attractions (for example the Corning Glass Museum) in order to get back to our destination in time. This was not happened. The original arrival time to Chinatown, Manhattan was 8:15 pm. We rented a car for that evening to reach our accomodation in Wallkill and the appointment time for the rental was 9pm. The car rental shop was open till 10pm. We finally got back to Chinatown around 10pm. We were trying to find a solution with the rental company but they could not do anything. Because of this we were at Manhattan again with all of our luggages, without a car, and therefore without the chance to get to Wallkill. So we couldn't help finding a Hotel in Manhattan for that night which was another unexpected cost. From this point all the rest of our programs were delayed and we had to rush to everywhere.

Very professional and punctual tour service. Used it on 2/3 Sep. Picked up on time, managed the group timings by giving apt time slots and dropped back on time. Bus was clean and the hotel was relaxing. Special thanks to Kaylie for being a great tour guide. She was really good and it must be tough doing it every day. I would definitely recommend this tour service to anyone visiting Niagara falls. Special Thanks to Kaylie and Bus Driver. both are entertaining and punctual. Thankyou for making our trip awesome.
