My husband and I giggled throughout this whole tour! Two guides joked around with the group, and each other while giving funny facts about the city. Paid entertainers on the street were delightful to watch. A great way to spend an hour in NYC!

I absolutely loved the windows, the guide was informed and it was very comfortable on a 90 degree day in NYC There was an accident in Times Square so that cut some of the sites but no fault of the tour guide. It was a nice way to spend 90 minutes

Potentially a fun (expensive) way to spend an hour in NYC - I can see that the enjoyment levels really depend on your tour guides and the enthusiasm level of the group in your bus. If you are going with your own group - then yes - but we were 3 people in a bus load of around 45 who did not interact / laugh at the tour guides jokes, so was a bit dull (and had a direct impact on the guides who lost much of their enthusiasm as the tour progressed). The 'street' actors are of average talent ability - nothing special. Great concept - poorly executed.

I laughed and cheered and danced in my seat. The Ride is a super fun way to experience a little bit of New York. Go for the enjoyment of the show. I still find it entertaining that people would bust into dance on the street and the local New Yorkers didn't think a thing of it. The guides were amazingly funny.
