Here's what one of our many satisfied agents had to say about our FAM trip:


I can't begin to tell you how wonderful our trip to New York was through the independent fam.
It was my sister's first time and she will never ever forget it, as she went as my companion.
The hotel was in a "perfect" location and they were very accommodating.  Our room was very nice!
Got there on Thursday night.

Friday, met the tour guide at 9am for our WTC Memorial tour....took the subway.......learned a lot from him.  After his tour, we had lunch and then did the 9/11 Museum.  Heartbreaking but wonderfully done!!  Must have spent 3 hours or so inside.  Took the subway home.
Saturday, we walked and redeemed our tickets for the hop on/hop off bus and then took it down to Ground Zero and back, as it was starting to rain.  The tour lady was very informative, though, and learned more about New York.  Had lunch at an Irish Pub and then on the way back to the hotel, found a street fair going on so walked through that......did a little shopping and the food vendors were unbelievable.......looked and smelled amazing.
Afterwards, hired a guy and did a bike rikshaw ride through Central Park.  Paid too much and the information was fun but not worth the money.  Lesson learned.  Went to Times Square Saturday night to see "The Color Purple".  I don't know how you did it but we had front row seats right next to the stage..........Will NEVER EVER get over it!!  The play was outstanding and we could see and feel everything.  It was "over the top".
Sunday, we took the subway on our own (whew) down to Pier 16 and redeemed our voucher for the boat ride around the Statue of Liberty.  It was a little rainy but still a wonderful experience.  Took the subway back to around the Empire State Building and then used our last voucher to see the view after dark.........gorgeous!!  Took a cab back to our hotel.
Monday, went out for a bagel and last minute shopping before saying goodbye to New York.
What a wonderful city!!  The people we met along the way were all warm and friendly.  Loved Times Square and all the other sights we saw....definitely want to come back and bring others.
I want to thank you for all your patience and help and for the wonderful independent fam package that is offered through your company.  It was really fantastic!!
Thank you......................"
