So this past September I finally made it to New York City for a few days before heading to Europe. Since I had never been I wanted to do some of the “touristy” things. Through word of mouth I heard about The Ride and decided to check it out. I am hear to say that it was the BEST EXPERIENCE EVER. The concept is Amazing the knowledge you walk away is given in the most entertaining way possible. The tour guides and actors and actresses that create the interactive between what’s on the bus to what’s on the streets is just plain PHENOMENAL. I would HANDS DOWN recommend this to any and everyone of all ages!!!

For history lovers the downtown experience is a MUST!!!!!
The virtual reality that is a part of the tour is magnificent!

If you are thinking, should we? Then definitely do it. It was so funny and just made our whole trip. I’d recommend it to everyone. You’ll still be smiling and laughing out loud about for days to come.

We thoroughly enjoyed the Ride. The tour guides engaged our children directly. The kids asked to go again.
