NYCVP Travel Testimonials

"NYC local says, this is one amazing tour”
I had a friend visiting from out of town who had never been to New York. I booked a walking tour with Hal Glicksman, and we were joined by another friend who is a lifelong New Yorker. We started in the Wall Street area and ended in Chinatown. All three of us were amazed. I never knew how much there was to see in my own city, or how interesting (and fun) it is to explore. Hal not only is very knowledgeable but entertaining and eager to answer your questions - and we had lots. All three of us were talking about it the whole rest of the trip. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. This is the best way to start a visit I could think of!

“Awesome tour!”
"Hal our awesome guide walked us ragged and talked us ragged. He knew facts beyond human comprehension and for 75yrs many in our group had hard time keeping up with him! He gave us great tips on what to see and what not and was so personable. I highly recommend this tour and was not one bit afraid to go on that subway with Hal, it was my first time on a subway and even though I didn't get that card right as he explained, he was gentle in making fun of me! About 14 in our group, got us to 9/11 Memorial (on our own) then met up and got us to ferry to Status of Liberty and then he departed and we went to Ellis Isl and back to financial district....a very good tour if you like to walk and price was right. Highly recommend this tour company and Hal....other tour companies hawk on the streets and I'm so glad I decided on this one."

" award-winning tour of the National September 11 Memorial and the Statue of Liberty."
NYC and Company
, New York City’s official marketing, tourism and partnership organization, referring to NYCVP's FREEDOM Comprehensive Tour.

"Ground Zero and Statue of Liberty Walking Tour - There's millions of people in NYC, but a remarkably few New Yorkers have actually seen those classic NYC sights that make New York, well, New York! This tour allows you to get inside the Statue of Liberty, which few actually get to do anymore, and bypass the ferry line, which we all know is atrocious. Tons of tourists flock to NYC every day and look for sightseeing tours like ours, so you'll be helping them out by providing an honest viewpoint for them." Hello

NYCVP Traveler Testimonials and NYCVP Travel Reviews
 "I've heard from the group lead today and they couldn't say enough about the trip.  They were happy with the transportation, the hotel, the tour, the broadway show and LOVED the bonus inclusions."
C.W. Cruise Planners

"Hi April, Just wanted to let you know we had a wonderful time in New York.  It was truly amazing and having our transportation and hotel bookings with the passes already arranged through you was a life saver!!  We look forward to coming back to NYC soon and will be calling upon you once again.  Thank you for everything!!!
M. Khan

 "Without a doubt, this was one of the most top notch vacations. We were unsure since we went on a whim and booked with a company that we knew nothing of. However, everything was taken care of down to the tiniest detail. I think the most special time of the whole trip besides the Parade was the play Phantom of the Opera and to have front row seats was just beyond our dreams.
Thank you for every detail and putting up with my questions before we left. We definitely will use your agency again and will be happy to be a reference for you if you need it."
N. Phipps
"Hello Beth,
We had a great time in NYC for New Year's Eve! It was everything and more of what you described; we are so glad we had the opportunity to attend such a fun evening. The only thing that would have made the evening better would have been to meet you; we were so disappointed you were not able to attend. Thanks again for ALL your help!"
Mrs. S.K., Spring, TX
"We have been to many cities and usually take a tour of the city as one of the 1st things to do. As part of our packaged trip to NYC for Christmas we chose several events/tours and one of the items we chose was the "Holiday Lights Tour." We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and would recommend it to anyone. What made this tour so good was the tour guide. He was so knowledgeable about NY and the information he gave was excellent. He knew exactly where to turn, what was around each corner or up ahead. If we could have picked a better tour guide, I doubt it. Sincerely, we would like to thank Chris Lucas for the excellent tour.
DS & SS, Mentor, Ohio
"We had a great time at the ball drop gala. The view was fantastic and the food was great. I will definitely recommend it to friends and family."

"With the holidays over and now back to work, I wanted to thank you for a “trip of a lifetime” to NYC and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.  We will always remember this one.  Meet lots of folks on same vacation from Florida and Georgia at the Residence Inn Thanksgiving Day party.  Some of them we will see again.  Everything was wonderful…hotel, excursions, TG evening meal, timing of arrival and departure-no wait at either airport!  …New Yorkers are more friendly than we expected…several helped up navigate the subway.  Being “downtown” was great, we walked most everywhere.
Again, thanks for a great trip!
BM and GM

"We just wanted to thank you for the amazing night for the Tree Lighting dinner and party. What an amazing event to take part of and attend. As this was our first event with you it was amazing from start to finish. It was so good we will be seriously looking at the 2018 New Years Eve party if you still do them next year. We had no issues getting through the crowds as we pre planned the route and actually didn’t have any delays. Some people did say they had issues with NYPD not knowing about the passes and not sure where to go but we didn’t encounter anything like that. One option you may have to fix the problem is have everyone meet at the Sheraton and walk as one group if they are late. I think people figured they could show up last minute and just make their way past everyone but with that many people it doesn’t work like that.
The bus Christmas light tour was also nice as Chuck was a great tour guide. He gave us more history of the city which we didn’t expect to receive and the lights we did see were amazing. It’s just to bad that more places don’t have lights to see as it would make it even more exciting.
Thanks again and as soon as you have next years rates for New Years please let me know as you may have several couples attending from Timmins Ontario!

The hotel was great and the room view was awesome, very neat to see it from high up, the marching bands took on a whole new perspective. We did a statue of liberty cruise, nat history museum, central park and the MET. Dinner was fine - not spectacular. Lion king was probably the biggest hit with the kids - just amazing, super funny, we're all still talking about it. We squeezed in plenty of shopping - kids loved the Lego store, and even did a science museum near LaGuardia before our flight. My kids are at an age where they still think riding escalators was fun - and the hotel had a lot of those to keep them occupied."
"Thank you both for all of your help in booking my trip. It was ABSOLUTELY amazing. We will be going back!! For my first big trip and first flight, I was COMPLETELY and beyond satisfied. Thank you again for helping me and my kids have the trip of a lifetime."

"Loved the tour with Chris Lucas and Kim. Chris was entertaining and a wealth of information. There was a great deal of traffic (holiday season) but he never ran out of NYC trivia!"

"My husband and I were on Chris Lucas's Holiday tour on Weds. Evening, Nov.30. We loved it. We were not impressed with the holiday lights part of the tour but loved the commentary. Several people in our group who have been frequent city visitors were amazed at what they learned. For example, I have been in Central Station several times as a train passenger, but I missed all the details Chris shared. It was a great evening and I would highly recommend the tour to others."

"I brought my 77 year old mother to see New York for the first time, and this tour was the highlight of our visit. Julian did a great job maneuvering the coach bus around the city, while Chris Lucas shared his obvious love of New York. Chris had a wealth of knowledge about everything from the Tiffany Snowflake being designed by Audrey Hepburn to the invention of the oyster cracker, and was funny to boot. We would recommend this Tour to everyone. Thanks for a wonderful start to our holiday season."

"It was a wonderful tour, Hal our guide, provided lots of info that isn't in the guidebooks. He invited questions and comments thru out the walk.  We saw everything we wanted to see in the walking tour, and Hal kept a good pace, not too slow, not too fast. However, for us (aged 70+) it was too much for us to include the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island at the end. We were pooped and didn't give those two the attention they deserved. We will come back next year and just do those two in a day. We were also signed up for a 911 Museum tour on Sunday (walking tour on Friday) and were nervous to take the subway on our own from our hotel to the site. Hal gave us good instructions and even gave everyone on our tour his phone number in case we had questions or concerns. I would definitely recommend the tour to anyone."
"...Central Park was such a great tour with tour guide Gary Lee, he was so knowledgeable and friendly.  We really enjoyed it.
911 Tour.... Tour Guide Hal Glicksman..........even though the weather was horrible, rainy and cold he led us through the streets to the memorial via the subway, he also was very knowledgeable and friendly.  We did go to Ellis Island and Statue of Liberty, which was part of this tour but the crowds and weather dampened the experience.   
Broadway Shows: The Front Page, we had really good seats, enjoyed it. Hamilton:  We had seats way in the back, the seats were very uncomfortable for our knees were on the heads of the people in front of us........the show was fabulous.  Beautiful......we had seats in the 3rd row, wonderful show.
Restaurants:  We ate at Barbetta one night, food was very good but spendy. Our favorite was Brasserie Cognac (1740 Broadway).  we had dinner one night and came back the next day (Sunday 10/23) for brunch for Carol's birthday.  The staff and the food there were excellent.
Tuesday 10/18, Carol discovered she didn't have her wallet...........we retraced our steps and came to the conclusion that she must have left it at Rosie O'Grady's the night before. We waited til 11:30 a.m. to walk over there and sure enough it was there....the staff was very friendly, the wallet was intact and Carol was grateful!!
I guess this is vey long winded! Like I told you we were  thankful that all our connections came together, directions on vouchers were easy to follow.
We both agreed using your company made our NYC experience all that we wanted it to be."
"Hi Jennifer & Beth
Doug & I want to thank you for all your help and great advice in arranging our recent visit to NYC. Cannot provide enough positive feedback on your agency's services. Everything you arranged for us, including our requested early check-in to the Marriott Marquis, was flawless.  All "insider" advice was on target and most helpful.
The Marriott Marquis was a great location, their concierge services very helpful. Loved the Grayline Bus Tours - great way to get around the city, and learn a lot in the process.  Brunch at Tavern on the Green was a great experience as was the Broadway Show.  One of our favorites was the NYC Harbor Boat (Status of Liberty Express) Tour.  Thanks so much for including that in our package.
We would have no hesitation in recommending you and your organization's services to anyone who wants a hassle-free trip to the Big Apple.
Thanks again!"
DH & DH, Fernandina Beach, FL

"Jennifer, I just wanted to drop you a thank you note for all your help for our recent Yankee trip. EVERYTHING was wonderful, our hotel was great as was our seats at the stadium. Chris Lucas our escort was so great, my fiancé who is the big fan had such a great time talking to him.  My surprise went off without a hitch, I think he was in shock at first and now he just keeps thanking me!
This was my first 'set up' trip and I will never do it by myself again! I have already told my friends about you and when I ever come to NYC again I'll know who to e-mail! Thanks again."

"We took the Comprehensive Freedom tour on Friday, Sept. 9, 2016. Our guide was Tony Di Sante. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and Tony was a very capable guide. I would highly recommend  this tour because it includes so much information and some of the most important historical sites in NYC. It also introduces you to how to ride the subway in the city. 
Tony was very helpful in guiding us on the subway and around town. He would give us reference points so we could find our way back.  He shared his knowledge & interesting stories about NYC & its people with us. Tony was not “too wordy”, just the right amount of info. He was organized and kept the tour moving & on schedule."
Thank you, Tony!

"My husband and I just returned from our NYC trip and wanted to let you know we were thrilled with the way your travel plans worked for us! Everything pretty much went without any problems.  The Tavern on the Green told me that they did not have reservations for us, but seated us anyway, so no problem there.
I do have one question as we ended up not using the voucher for the Rockefeller Center Tour on File #VP182980.  I was told by the cashier at the Top of the Rock, that I could not exchange it for Top of the Rock observation tickets and that I needed to ask you for a refund on that particular ticket.  Well it doesn't hurt to ask, so would that be possible since we did not use that voucher? 
I will refer your website to everyone I know considering a trip to NYC, as your site is user friendly and your people are friendly and very aware of how to schedule your time in NYC. 
 Thank you again for this trip of a lifetime!!"

"Hi Beth,
I can't thank you enough for the great package you put together for my son and I. The Yankee games were the best seats we have ever had at any sporting event. Just wanted you to know how much we enjoyed our stay in NY. Thank you so much,"
CS and SS

"I just wanted to give you some feedback on a tour that my family took with NYCVP last week while in New York. Hal Glicksman was our guide for a wonderfully informative tour of the 9/11 Memorial, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. From the time we met Hal and the rest of our tour group in Midtown, through the subway ride downtown, and to the point of where Hal left the tour, his knowledge of history and the area, energy and charisma, and willingness to field questions and help travels not only during the tour but afterwards was fantastic!  Hal is definitely a credit to your business! Thanks for a great, informative, and educational tour with Hal!

"Beth: I wanted to take this time to THANK YOU for all you did to organize my NYC trip for my granddaughter's 10th B-Day trip. We have a wonderful time and the seats to the Phantom of the Opera were priceless. I can't put into words what this meant to me and my granddaughter, but I wanted again, to THANK YOU. You're the best, and if I should again want to book a NYC trip, I will be looking for you:)"

"Beth, Just a short note to thank you for your help on our recent trip to NYC. Your recommendation for the Double Tree Suites was so perfect for us since we had 2 adult women and my 12 year old  grandchild. It was very spacious and we enjoyed it."

"Wonderful day. Stephanie was a great host. The lunch at the Novotel and the Cruise for the fireworks were first class. We then danced the night away. Transfers were efficient and being dropped back to Times Square was great. Would highly recommend!”
Frances J., Australia

"Had a great trip with Hal last Thurs to the 911 Memorial and Statue of Liberty. Hal was very pleasant, funny, and loaded with info!  And he walks fast too!!  Appreciated his humor and personal stories as well. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting NYC. Loved where he told us ride on the Ferry as well as a great pizza place and fabulous bakery."
JB, Florida

"Just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with the whirlwind vacation we booked with you. Hal Glicksman was a fantastic guide for our Freedom Tour. He is absolutely a fountain of knowledge! The Broadway Shows had great seats for us and were priced so well, and row 2 for Phantom of the Opera, nothing but awesome! Tour guide for the Central Park movie tour was also wonderful and knew so much!
I especially want to thank you for e-mailing me a copy of our super shuttle voucher back to LaGuardia; that saved me from having to pay after I had misplaced the original voucher.
I most definitely would book tours with your agency again!!"
DF, Kansas

"Just wanted to let you know that Freya stopped in this morning and had nothing BUT GREAT things to say about her trip to NYC!! They even moved her to row 9 for Hamilton ... Thanks so much for your help!!"
DA, Travel Agent

"The trip was a success - had a great time.  The hotel was nice, the show fantastic and the food.... We will be sure to use your services again in the future."

"Our tour guide, Tony, was absolutely fantastic. We were a group of 8 and we all loved our tour! Thanks so much. It was well paced and we felt we had adequate time at all sites. Our guide was knowledgeable and handled all questions well. Thank you."
DM, New Orleans

"Beth. Had the best time. Thank you. Everything was perfect. Awesome New York trip."

"Our walking tour including the Financial District and 911 Memorial as well as tickets to the Statue of Liberty was phenomenal. Tony Di Sante was not only informative, but also funny. He had a vast store of knowledge and information regarding the history of the area as well as interesting stories and trivia not  found in the travel books. Thanks for an awesome time!!
"You did a great job planning this trip. Everything went very smoothly.The seats at the play were great and the extra trip to the museum was good...Thanks!"
"Beth, Wanted to let you know we returned from our trip to New York on Monday. The trip you put together was great. We had a very good time. My wife loved Wicked. Thank you for everything."

"On this our 3rd trip to New York City using NYCVP, the precision with which the major events are organized and carried out is impressive (as an aside, booking other special events via NYCVP to enjoy the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade [great viewing above the street, and fed two meals like there is no tomorrow], and the July 4th Fireworks extravaganza [from a large ship on the river right under the spectacle with ample food and drink for all!] is definitely the way to go. For the New Years Eve Time Square Ball Drop Gala, SHOUT-OUT to Joel and Barry whose planning and beforehand information came off with military precision. Incredible view of Time Square from one side of the building, and excellent views of the post-midnight fireworks show from above Central Park. Open bar with everything one could think of, fine appetizers and the dinner meal was nicely laid out and the desserts not to be missed. Would estimate that there was about 150 people attending this event and the size was just right. Very good DJ, ample room for dancing for those who can still shake it. Incredible viewing of Times Square and the Ball Drop from both the 22nd and 23rd floors of the Convene Center. The NYPD began preparing the streets and check-points allowing access to the "Times Square" area and viewing at about 4:00 pm, yet NYCVP's instructions for navigating the check-points were on the mark. Many representatives from NYCVP were present as well, and for those who have had the pleasure of working with some the staff in booking other events, a SHOUT-OUT also to Jennifer and Bethany, who help in booking and getting information out could not have been any more professional from the start, and effortless with all the knowledge and insight that comes with top-notch trip planners."
David and Lois, Longwood, FL

"Thank you once again for organising such a fantastic New Years Eve party, which was just as good as last year. Both myself and Rowena thoroughly enjoyed ourselves all night in great company from the moment we entered the building until the last dance."
MS and RS

"Hi, we had Hal Glicksman for the downtown, 9/11 and Statue of Liberty tour on Sat, Dec. 19, 2015. He was excellent. Fun and personable. Very knowledgeable. Enjoyed him thoroughly! He even gave us his personal number if we wanted to join him later for a late lunch. Exceptional service! Thanks NYC trip for employing Hal!"
KD, Abbeville, AL

"Visited NYC over the Thanksgiving holiday. We booked our hotel, Del Frisco's parade watch party, dinner reservations, and Broadway show tickets through you. It was a great experience. Everything was seamless. Thanks for helping to make my son's first trip to the big apple one he will never forget."

"Hello, April -- I just wanted to let you know that our NYCVP package was great from start to finish. Everything went very smoothly. The driver was there promptly, the vouchers were honored without a hassel and the seats at the shows were fine. (I'm sure if we'd been able to book the shows a littler earlier they might even have been better.) Even changing our entry times to One World Trade Center and to the 911 Memorial because of no visibility on Monday at 1:00 worked well. We were able to do the 911 Memorial at 1:00 pm instead of 3:00 pm. When we came out of the museum at 4:00 the weather had cleared so we headed to the One World Observation Deck and cocktails and a light dinner while watching the night set in over NYC. Beautiful! Thanks for all your help in arranging a great NYC experience."

"Hi Beth: We really enjoyed the package you helped put together for us. You were timely and helpful with your responses which gave us a lot of confidence that things were going to work out well. I would recommend NYCVP to others and highly recommend them to you since you were so helpful. Thanks for all you did for us....we had a great time!! Happy Holidays."
LF, Colorado

"Words cannot express our gratitude for a wonderful, awesome, fantastic family trip we, 11 of us, experienced this Thanksgiving, 2015!!!!!!!!!  This was a first time family trip to NYC, and you all made it an experience we can remember with smiles!!!!!!! Your planning and precise order of all the vouchers, hotel accommodations, and free tours were wonderful. Beth Tannenbaum was my go to person online, and she was WONDERFUL!!!!!!!!!! NYCVP  gave our family a wonderful trip full of memories, smiles, without any hassle or upsets! THANK YOU so very, very much and Merry Christmas, and a very Happy New Year!!!!!!"
NT and family
"Bethany, thank you so much for a great experience for me and my family. We had a great time. The transfers with DaVinci were flawless and Alex was prompt and courteous. The hotel was in the perfect location for the Subway, for walking and for their rooms and service. The parade was wonderful and boy did we luck out on the weather!!! We had a great meal at Del Frisco’s and then my husband and I went outside and managed to get within 6 people deep at the guard rail to see the parade. My granddaughters were able to see best from the upper railing at Del Frisco’s … This trip was on my bucket list and lived up to every expectation I had. Again, thanks for helping me with this great experience."
Everything was perfect. We had so much fun. The weather was perfect. Thank you for great seats at Wicked & Radio City. The thanksgiving parade breakfast & viewing was also perfect. Merry Christmas."

"Hey, Beth! We are safely back in Missouri from our adventure in the Very Big Apple! There is too much to tell, so let me sum it up by saying that it was one of the most enjoyable experiences of our lives! In other words, you done good! Also, we had the pleasure of meeting your brother, William, who was at the Thanksgiving dinner. We sang your praises to him!
I am sending a couple of the many photos we took. One is with the NY cops who arrested us for gawking at tall buildings! (Not really. They were very friendly and helpful). The play was really entertaining, and we were pleasantly surprised that the theater was just next door to Sardi's. We made reservations there and had a great meal after the play.
We would love to go back at another season, so will be in touch. Thanks, again, for your help in making this such a great visit. Cheers!"

"Hi Beth, Your group of travel professionals ROCKS! Very responsive, incredibly knowledgeable and just super helpful. 
Thank you for the information. Have a great day!"

"Everything worked beautifully. The hotel was great. We got to do everything we wanted. Our seats at the RCMH Christmas Spectacular were great … We were all happy with our trip. We got to do everything we had paid for. We have no complaints … We will definitely be using NYCVP again for our future trips to NYC and thanks again for all your help. Have a blessed day,"
Lopez Family
"I just wanted to give some special recognition to Beth Tenenbaum, who helped us with our once-in-a-lifetime trip to see the Macy's Day parade this Thanksgiving. She has patiently been working with us for over two years, as we had to cancel our plans for last Thanksgiving. But, always with supportive comments and helpful suggestions, Beth kept us on track and got everything done with grace and efficiency. You are certainly fortunate to have her represent you, and there is no doubt that if we were ever to plan another trip to the Big Apple in the future, we would demand to have her be our guide. I think she needs a raise (or at least a Christmas bonus!)."
"Carole and the whole team did a fabulous job! My group was very pleased with their trip!"

"Jim, Just a word of THANKS. We returned from our trip experience this last Sunday. Everything went as planned. It was truly a trip of a life time for us. There were no surprises. We were able to do so many things. We learned a lot about how the “big city” works. We found good and accommodating people everywhere. The arrangements you made were EXACTLY like we wanted.  So many times expectations exceed the actual experience – but not this time. Again, thank you so much."
"Thank You for everything Beth. I would surely go through you again if I ever decided to visit NYC again!!"

"Beth, thank you so much.You have done a great job for us. Tell your boss that you deserve a raise. Tell him I said so. Best regards,"

"We wanted to take a few moments to let you know how much we appreciated the Freedom Comprehensive Tour-Ground Zero 911 led by Tony on July 22. We were very impressed with his knowledge of the many different historical sights that we toured. He did a fantastic job! In fact, we were so impressed with his tour that we made the Freedom Comprehensive Tour a must do on our return trip to New York. We are returning with our family and have requested Tony to lead our tour on Saturday, September 5. Thank you for providing such a fantastic guide for our tours."

"My family recently booked a trip and entertainment through New York City Vacation Packages and we are very happy with the service and quality of your packages. We took the Freedom Comprehensive Tour with tour guide Tony Di Sante and found his personality and thorough knowledge of the city to be enjoyable and enlightening. His tour was easily our favorite activity! We will happily recommend your company's services to friends and family and would also recommend they ask for Tony."

"Our Vacation to New York was FABULOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We were smack dab in middle of Time Square and a special note our Tour Guide for the combined 911/statue tour his name was HAL .... he was absolutely Wonderful!
Thank you for all your help
will contact you again next time we come to New York."
"Hi Jennifer, We are back from our vacation in NYC.
Your package with reservations and tickets to the various events was perfect and we had no problems seeing and exploring the city.
Thank you so much for making our vacation a great success. We LOVE NYC !"
"Dear Ms. Zambito, My vacation was marvelous thanks to you."

"Hi Beth, Just wanted to tell you that our trip to NYC was just awesome thanks to you! The hotel was great, the limo driver was so nice to us and the seats at Phantom were the best we have ever had!! I have told everyone about you and your company. The Empire State building was beautiful at night on the outside deck- what a sight!! Thanks you so much for all your help- you helped make a wonderful memory for our family!!"
JP, Williamson, NY
"Hi Jennifer,

EH, Whittier, NC
Hi Beth,
I just wanted to say a very big thank you for helping me organise my trip to new York. We had a great time and everything went smoothly ;) (apart from a flight delay on the way to new york). New York Is a great place with lots to see a return trip is most likely!!! Thank you for your kindness and patience with me while organising the trip. My daughter was overwhelmed with her surprise and the trip."

"I just wanted to express our sincere satisfaction with our recent tour with Hal Glicksman. Hal was a SUPER guide and a fountain of information about NYC. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Hal and recommend him as a superb guide."

"Beth, I just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU! My friends and I had a wonderful time in NYC and you set us up with the best passes and discounts! It was super easy and we loved having the vouchers for the museums, the empire state building,  and the observation on top of the rock. It was truly an amazing trip. My friends kept saying, "Oh wow, you already have the tickets?!". It made everything so smooth. I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your hard work and for give me the best experience ever! It was my best birthday yet! And my boyfriend and I are already excited about planning our next trip. I will be seeking your assistance hopefully soon! Take care and thank you again!

"Hi Beth!
We want to sincerely thank you for making the perfect arrangements for our trip to New York City last week!
From the moment we arrived until we said farewell to The Big Apple, it was wonderful in every way! We did everything we planned to do, thanks to you and the great location we had. The Sheraton Times Square was beautiful and everyone was so kind. We did upgrade to the Club Level on the 44th floor. We had a lovely room and access to the Club Room 24hrs/day. The Club's breakfasts and light dinners were the best way to start and finish each day.
We thoroughly enjoyed the 9/11 Memorial & Museum where we spent the entire day on Monday, Feb. 9th. It was breathtaking and so beautifully done.
We got our tickets to see a taping of The Dr. Oz Show, after which we bundled up and went to Ellis Island and The Stature of Liberty. As I tell our friends, we were able to check a few things off of our "Bucket List"!
What great memories we have, along with many beautiful photos.
Several of our friends have asked for your name to plan a trip to NYC. Today I gave your name, e-mail address and toll-free number to our friend. She will be contacting you to make plans for a Springtime trip.
Thank you so very much for all that you did to make such wonderful arrangements for us that enabled us to have the best time we could have ever hoped for, Beth! Looking forward to contacting you again in the future.
With Gratitude,"

"We have returned home from our trip and I wanted to take the time to thank you all for a wonderful time ... What an experience! The tour guide shared a lot of information, the bus driver did a fantastic job - everything was incredible-please pass on my thanks, it was a wonderful day.  Additionally, the coupons we used were for the Empire State building and the Museum of Natural History-both were great. I could go on and on but let me say that all parts (stay warm breakfast, dinner, hotel, etc.) were memorable. 
Thanks again for getting this set up!"

"Hey Bethany, I just wanted to send you an email. We had our New York trip last week. We had a GREAT time!!! For a first timer in New Yorker it couldn’t have been better. The hotel was great as well as the location. I loved the walking tour and the harbor dinner cruise. Even New Yorkers stopped on the street and said, “What are you looking for?” I came home bragging about NYCVP. Thanks for all your help and patience with the details. Everyone in our group came home saying, “That was a great vacation!!” We will definitely go again."

"Hi Dottie,
I wanted to let you know our trip to NYC back in July was better than I ever anticipated; everything went without a hitch, which I'm so grateful for. I was very reluctant to book the trip, simply because I had no idea what I was getting into, but all said and done, I would do it again in a heartbeat, or should I say in a "New York second"!!
I purposely left Wednesday, the first day we arrived, as a free day so we could acclimate ourselves to our surroundings, and we took full advantage of that ~ we walked, as my husband put it "18 miles every day"!!
Our hotel was very centrally located, so we got to stroll through Central Park, and also walk to Times Square, and just about everywhere we went with the exception of the 9/11 tour. The tour guide we had was so knowledgeable, and a guided tour is surely the way to go. Needless to say, Wicked was beyond phenomenal, and dinner at The View restaurant was awesome.
All said and done, we had a great trip, and I wanted to thank you again for helping me plan it and all the advice you had given me; it definitely went a long way once we got there. I would for sure recommend your services to anyone planning a trip such as this; it's not something I could've done on my own, and I really did rely heavily on your suggestions/recommendations.
Thanks again, I really appreciated all your help."

"Beth: Thank you so much for assisting me to develop our 53rd anniversary trip to NYC. We had a super time. The Sheratan accommodations were just right for us. The seating for the theater was excellent. The performance was great. The dinner and yacht tour was also super. The bus tour on Friday morning was also terrific. The bus driver and tour guide were an excellent team. They made the tour almost personal. We had a super time, even the trains were on time."

"My husband and I absolutely enjoyed the NYC vacation package. It was to celebrate our honeymoon and although we are residents of NY state we were happy to enjoy all the sights together. Thank you for your prompt service, fair pricing and for the tour provided by Tony Di Sante. He was informative and humorous."

"Visiting NYC from the Carolinas, we and another couple chose this tour to celebrate the 4th of July and we were so happy we did! With the threat of rain, we were not inconvenienced because the BBQ was held indoors (instead of outdoors) and the afternoon coach tour of the city kept us dry and in comfort. The guide was informative and it was relaxing to sit back and see the city from that vantage point. As promised, we were delivered to the harbor with just a short walk to the ship. The staff onboard was helpful and courteous. We shared a table with four other people and enjoyed a really nice buffet! One of the tour guides was also onboard to share info on the sights from the harbor as we sailed. Great view of the fireworks; in fact, we first were treated to the NJ fireworks show before the NYC display! The food and drinks continue as we sailed back to the harbor. Our familiar coaches were there to wisk us away from the crowds and back to the city. It was very well done and we will book another Viator tour when we get the chance. It was really the best way to see the city, enjoy a lovely lunch and dinner and the fireworks!"

"Bethany, Just wanted to let you know that we had a great time in NYC. The seats to Wicked were great. The hotel as well as the comprehensive tour were great. It was nice to have everything taken care of before arriving.
Thanks for all your help especially after such short notice!
Thanks again!"

"Bethany, We’re back now from the wonderful NYC trip that you arranged for us.
We want to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed our trip and appreciate all the accommodations that you arranged and all the details you took care of.
 All of our ventures there went splendidly – we couldn’t have picked better seats for the shows that we saw. You must really have connections – the weather was great all of the time, not too hot or too cold with rain just one evening.
The guide for the Freedom Tour, Hal Glicksman, was especially delightful and knowledge.
Thanks again – if we ever plan a trip that way again you’ll be the first to know, and we’ll be happy to recommend you.
Do you do vacation arrangements for other areas?"

"Just a quick note to express our complete satisfaction with the job done by Tony Di Sante on our walking tour of the 911 memorial and other attractions in Battery Park. Tony's commentary was excellent; it was clear, complete and very well delivered. He kept everyone's attention and answered all our questions completely. Tony is among the best tour guides that we have had in our travels over the last 15 years!   
RM and WM

"Just a quick FYI, I was in NYC a few days before Christmas, it was one of the most spectacular trips of my life ... Enough so that I plan to come back this fall and stay longer. I did attend a guided tour, hosted by Dick Swarn, he was a superlative guide and deserves much credit for his expertise! ...Cheers, Hats Off, Salute to Dick
Thank you kindly,"
Sherry, Americas Dairyland, Heartland USA

"My sisters and I were in NYC for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and went on the Balloon Inflation tour with Matt A. as our guide. We had some other tours with NYCGO, and Matt was by far the best tour guide, in my opinion. He was enthusiastic about NYC and shared the things he loves about New York. He did a great job of telling us what was going to happened, time constraints, bathroom stops, etc. And he shared all his favorite places to eat, which really helped us out during our trip. I've been to NYC several times and taken a lot of tours. I enjoyed Matt A. the most! He is a great ambassador for your company."

"My wife and are are both frequent travelers, both business and pleasure, however we have never been to NYC. She planned our entire 9 day vacation to NYC through WOW! from the first touch of the website, through calls to customer service with questions, to actual attendance at the events it was a GREAT experience!
The customer service staff were informed about the services / products and assisted us quickly. The events (Broadway plays and the Rockefeller Christmas tree lighting dinner / party) were delivered just as communicated and in some cases better.
The accommodations were excellent, and we took full advantage of all of the 'free' tickets that came with the package (NYC MOA, Circle line boat tour etc) was definitely a great way for a first time traveler to NYC and I would recommend it to anyone."

"On December 8 my daughter and I took a Christmas walking tour with Dick Swarn as our guide. It was great. Just as we were leaving our hotel it started to snow making the tour absolutely perfect. Dick was a wonderful guide. He was very knowledgeable and energetic adding extra Christmas spirit to our tour. I would highly recommend this tour and Dick as a guide."

"Just wanted to give you some positive feedback about Sybil; our guide last Sat. night. She was fun and informative in a historical and modern way.  We will use your company again!"

"Just wanted to email and thank NYCVP for making our recent Thanksgiving trip in New York City a very memorable and wonderful time!  Everything was taken care of for us….we received all our travel documents in plenty of time, everything was included and easily documented.  Upon arrival at our hotel in NYC, our reservation was correct, we checked in perfectly on time, great room, great hotel location, we will stay there again for sure. The day of our VIP brunch at Del Fresco’s, we followed the instructions, arrived on time and were welcomed upon entrance to the restaurant by the great serving staff, holding trays of cold mimosas as we entered! The brunch was wonderful, the service great, the view of the parade was perfect; best place to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade for sure! We had the best time! That evening the motor coach was waiting when we walked out of the hotel to take the group to see the city lights and sights on time, with a friendly and knowledgeable tour guide. Everything went well and every event on time and no chaos, every detail was handled.  We will certainly use NYCVP again in the future for our NYC travel needs. Thank you for all your help in making this “bucket list” trip a trip of a lifetime we will never forget!"

"My wife & I  started our first day in NYC (Nov 1, 2013) with this tour of the financial district, 911 Memorial & Statue of Liberty. Our tour guide (Tony Di Sante) made it even more enjoyable! He was very professional, informative & fun as well. He provided us with a lot of info that we would have never known or seen on our own! Would also like to note that we had one person in our party who had a little trouble walking-but Mr Di Sante never tried to hurry him up or make him or any of us uncomfortable-I highly recommend him as a guide as well as this fantastic tour!! Can't wait to get back to NYC!"

"My husband and I were in NYC and took the WTC Walking Tour. Mr. Glicksman was very professional, informed and funny.  We really enjoyed ourselves and pleased we had such a great guide. Please pass our thanks for an incredible tour."
MP and LP

"Dear Beth, I just wanted to thank you for planning a fabulous trip to NYC. Everything was great and the restaurants were terrific. I only wish I would have booked more with you and in the near future I will! Thanks again!"

"Beth, I'm hoping you'll share this with your department manager: As a customer-service consultant for more than 30 years, I pay close attention to all aspects of a transaction. In our recent dealings about my husband's and my proposed trip to NYC for Christmas, not once did you score less than a perfect 10 on my private "How good is this service?" scale. You provided appropriate options in response to my first query, and were very prompt and helpful in getting answers to my follow-up questions. Thus, you achieved the result all personal-service professionals seek: No surprises for the customer! This was truly excellent, and truly personal, service, and we are impressed.
Now, if only the weather and the actual service providers do anywhere near as well, in December . . . . Cheers,"

"Thank you all for your help in ensuring we had a wonderful time. You are great! I am recommending you to everyone I know who wishes to visit NYC."

"FYI. Hal Glicksman was our tour guide on our visit to NYC last month. He was perfect...knowledgeable, helpful, friendly, and interesting. He represented NY well, amused our teenager, and kept us moving. I was surprised that a tour was one of my highlights of the visit, up there with a broadway show and museum visits. Thanks Hal"

"We just got home after 2 days in NYC and then a two week cruise. We booked our hotel and tours through you. Overall we were quite pleased. The Algonquin was very nice. The bus tour was great, we even used one of the additional vouchers you gave us for the "Rock".
If we ever go to NYC again, we will check your website first."

"Hal was our tour guide, and he rocked!!!!! He was full of information, entertainment, and sincerity of heart. He was open to all questions, and didn't act as if any questions was not a question worth asking. He made that tour so enjoyable and informational at the same time. The tour I took two years ago was good, but not that good. He was amazing, and I wanted to let you know. Give that guy a raise. He is worth it!
Thank you again for all of your help, in making our trip to New York City, all that we wanted it to be.

"To whom it concerns: My wife and I took the WTC Memorial Tour with Hal Glicksman on August 5th. It was a great tour and we thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated Hal's knowledge, personal passion for NYC and the WTC site, as well as his wonderful ability to connect with the tour group. Its not everyday that one has the chance to meet someone like Hal, who, in the course of doing his job, demonstrates knowledge, professionalism, humor, passion and even a sense of humanity. And with a bunch of strangers!"
RS, Hollis, New Hampshire

"Although I had previously been to the 911 memorial site, this seemed to be a more comprehensive look at an area that I am unfamiliar with- and boy was it! Tony was a personable, knowledgeable guide to 17 people and kept us together through the subway system and to the destination. We started with the area around the ground zero site. Tony gave us such interesting information and facts about the site, the re-building and amazing neighboring Lower Manhattan area including Battery Park and the beautiful new World Finance buildings. We then headed to the Memorial site and then on to the Wall Street area. The tour flowed so smoothly and went at a good pace. I would highly recommend to people interested in seeing a new area, history buffs or New Yorkers that are unfamiliar with the area. The only negative may be for people who want to spend a lot of time at the Memorial and their store which has some displays and film clips. I may even go in this tour again!"
Lacey, Coopersburg, PA

"Our Tour Guide, Darryl made this tour so interesting. His enthusiasm and knowledge made the history come alive! Great day! Going inside the Statue of Liberty was icing on the cake after a subway ride and walking tour around many attractions! I would highly recommend this tour to anyone that capable of walking the required distance."
Roxie, Georgia

"Hi Beth, Aloha From Hawaii! It's been about 2 years since we took our trip to NYC, but it seems like yesterday… We were so impressed with your service and the package you booked for us in NYC and were wondering if you could refer us to a company like yours to help us with our trip to San Francisco… I've been looking on line, but cannot find anything like NYCVP. Maybe you spoiled us! If you are able to, any referral is appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Sincerely,"

"On July 12th, our group of four, took your tour of NYC departing from Times Square at 8:30. Our Tour Guide was Daryl. He was a delightful young man and very informative. He made each attraction exciting and interesting. We would highly recommend your Tour to others that plan to be in NYC in the future. Please let Daryl know that we appreciated the time that he shared with us! Sincerely,"
CD, Lexington, South Carolina

"this is one amazing tour”
I had a friend visiting from out of town who had never been to New York. I booked a walking tour with Hal Glicksman, and we were joined by another friend who is a lifelong New Yorker. We started in the Wall Street area and ended in Chinatown. All three of us were amazed. I never knew how much there was to see in my own city, or how interesting (and fun) it is to explore. Hal not only is very knowledgeable but entertaining and eager to answer your questions - and we had lots. All three of us were talking about it the whole rest of the trip. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. This is the best way to start a visit I could think of!"
Visited June 2013

"My wife and grandchild thoroughly enjoyed the tour as guided by Mr. Marc Landman. He met us at the Cosi cafe on time and explained the events he had planned for us.  He escorted us through the subway system and carefully guided us to the World Trade Memorials. He was informative, friendly, taking to time to talk to all participants and answer all questions. He made this tour the highlight of our trip to New York. 
Thank you Mark,"
RW & JW, El Paso,  Texas

"Hello! On Friday, 5/10/2013, my family (son, daughter-in-law, granddaughter,  grandson, and I) met up with one of your tour guides, Tony Di Sante, for the 5 ½-hour Freedom Comprehensive Tour. This tour was absolutely “awesome”!! Tony was great; taking us to additional sites that the average person without a tour guide wouldn’t have thought about visiting or couldn’t have found if on their own. I was very impressed with his professionalism and his friendliness; one can certainly ascertain that he loves doing this type of job….and he certainly knows what he is talking about.  He answered numerous questions and didn’t seem “rattled” by being asked so many.
This tour was the “perfect ending” to five days in NYC and was one of the top highlights of our visit. Kudos to Tony!!"
JD, Ellsworth, ME

"I just wanted to send a quick not (better late than never) about our fabulous tour guide over the holidays - Dick Swarn. He was funny, entertaining, and very aware of the needs of the group. He was able to accommodate everyone and navigate the holiday crowds with no problems. My family had a wonderful time and would go on another tour with Dick in a heartbeat. Thank you for a memorable trip.

"On Friday May 3rd, we took a tour of the World Trade Center, Ellis Island, and the Statue of Liberty with Tony. He did a great job. Very pleasant, well informed, and provided many interesting facts."

"My friend Cheryl and I spent the day with your tour guide Hal Glicksman on Saturday, April 6, 2013, on the Freedom Comprehensive Tour. We, along with six other people, were treated to a most delightful experience, full of insights and commentary only a true New Yorker could supply. Hal led us around lower Manhattan, regaling us with stories and facts about all the sights we were seeing. Our visit to the American Express memorial was a true highlight for both of us. Thank you, Hal, for taking us under your wing and providing a truly memorable experience."
CH, West Lafayette, Indiana

"Hello: I just wanted to send a note to let you know how much I enjoyed my tour on Saturday, April 6th with Hal. This was my first time to NY and unfortunately I was there for only one day. Hal was fantastic! I learned so much during our walking tour then I ever could have imagined. Besides the 911 Memorial which was very powerful the tour of the Eleven Tears Memorial in the American Express Building left me speechless and something I was not aware of. Thank you Hal for sharing your love of your city with us. I will recommend your tour group to others who plan on visiting the city. Sincerely,"
CA, Purdue University

"Hello! I recently booked a package with your company for my wife and myself to celebrate our 42nd anniversary. It included two nights at the Algonquin Hotel. show tickets to “Annie”, a sunset cruise on the circle line, and tours of the Empire State building and Metropolitan Museum.
I just wanted to say that the package was wonderful! Everything went very smoothly.
The hotel room was charming. We were right at the starting point for the St. Patrick’s day parade and so had a great close up view of many of the various marchers.
Initially I was concerned about the theatre seats but they were great, row B on the aisle!!
I must say that everyone I contacted at NYCVP was very courteous, pleasant, and helpful.
Thanks for making our weekend getaway such a pleasant memory.
RG, Rockville Centre, NY

I am writing to express my wife's and I pleasurable and memorable trip we had this past November. We saw the parade, toured the Empire State Building, took a ferry out to the Statue of Liberty, and did a walking tour of ground zero. We had a great time with Marc and he was very
knowledgeable about the city. We enjoyed the walking tour the most. The next time we're in NYC we will definitely request Marc for any tours we do. Keep up the great work Marc.

"I had a week's vacation package with you folks over New Year's Eve staying at the Warwick Hotel. I want to tall you that my hotel was perfect.
Our tour guide, Hal Glicksman, was perfect: pleasant in his presentation; very knowledgeable; gave insider tips regarding tourist areas; and offered his telephone number for us to call - if we had any further questions. I appreciated the voucher system with prepaid venues. I love New York and I cannot wait to go back ! Thank you for your fine service."
LA, Jacksonville, Florida

"Hi Beth,
I'm sorry for the delay in writing this! I want to express my thanks for your help with arranging our trip to New York and the Macy's Thanksgiving parade. Everything about your arrangements were perfect! The Sheraton was a great location, the parade viewing and breakfast as Del Frisco's was a perfect morning, and the convenience of having the show tickets waiting at will-call made our evenings that much easier. It was a big help to not have to worry about making arrangements on our own. I would definitely use NYCtrip again if coming back to New York.
Thanks again for your help,"

"Beth, We had a great time and your service was great. We are planning on another vacation this summer so I plan on using your services again in the future.
Thanks for everything,"

"Beth - wanted to send you a thank you note earlier, but life got crazy. We had a fantastic time in NYC. Only complaint was it was soooo crowded - we thought going early would cause us to miss the crowds, but they were all there. Dinner, the play, and the hotel were great! We are already talking about doing the same thing next December.
Thanks again, the trip was great."

"We took a tour with one of your guides on November 30, Marc Landman. He was superb, going into detail with so many things about New York and Ground Zero. It was myself, my husband, my sister and my sister-in-law. We really appreciate everything he did to make our stay in New York so great. We would recommend him to anyone that wanted to take a tour."

"Dear Hal: I was on a tour you conducted on Wednesday, Nov 28th in New York City. There was a group of 10 ladies picked up from the Sheraton, New York hotel. I thoroughly enjoyed your tour and all the information you imparted to us as we drove thru the streets and borough of New York.  You had so much knowledge about the city and the surrounding area and it was obvious how much you love your job and New York. I enjoyed the stops made at the bakery in Brooklyn and also at the souvenier shop.
New York is lucky to have a man like you to inform visitors that New York is a much friendlier and safe city than most Midwesterners realize.
Thanks again for a wonderful tour.  Your company is lucky to have a man like you."

"Bethany, Well we are back. trip was perfect.  Everything you guys coordinated for us went flawlessly. Thank you. I am glad I found you and trusted you guys way back in January.  The parade brunch was first class and the view amazing. We had a great time and I really want you to know I appreciate what you provided for my family. Happy Holidays"

"Beth - Just a quick note to thank you for your help in making our trip to NYC so memorable ... everything was perfect (I even managed to bring a little Texas weather with me ... it was gorgeous!)  All of our accomodations and ticketed events were seamless ... thanks again for your assistance.
MS and CS

"My husband and I took the Freedom Comprehensive Tour on 10/20. Out tour guide Mark Landman did a fantastic job. He was very friendly, informative and professional. He was very happy to answer any questions we had and shared his knowledge of the sites. He tried to get us on the tour group line at the World Trade Center Memorial, but they(WTC security) were not willing to give. It was wonderful however, that we were able to bypass the walk up line for the ferry to The Statue of Liberty. Mark made our day very productive and enjoyable."
JW and MW, Youngstown, NY
"Hello Beth
Just wanted you and your service to know we had an awesome time in NY! Everything was laid out very well. I know some of my friends were a bit uneasy about using an online service, but in the end were pleased also! If there is one improvement it would be to let people know that when going on the  911 memorial/liberty tour, there are no bathroom breaks or eating options till after. This was a bit long for a few of us to go without. I will definitely recommend your service to anyway looking into a NYC trip. Also, the tour guide Marc was very informative and enjoyable! Thank"
PS Mamma Mia seats and show were great!!!

"We were on the Oct 12 Am tour with Tony. He was a great guide with a wry sense of humor -- much appreciated.  He also helped us make the most of a very crowded scene that morning and whisked us through the lines most efficiently. Thanks!"
PA and BA, Madison, Wisconsin

"Dear NYCVP,
I had been to NYC before but my two sisters and niece had never been to NYC. I arranged for tours the weekend of October 11, 2012. Hal Glicksman was our tour guide for the comprehensive freedom tour and now that we have returned to Washington, D.C. my sisters are talking about Hal as much as the sights. He was truly a wonderful guide and gave us a lot of information about NYC and its population that went above and beyond what was stated in the tour synopsis. His company was a pleasure for all of us. He kept us moving – I was trying to figure out how he walked so fast. He was very personable and he could be a tour all by himself or have his own Hal’s NYC – he was also very funny.  The American Express building was one of the most touching sights. We got a lot of insider information that we would not have had on our own. Hal is a treasure."
DM, Vienna, Virginia

"Beth, Thank you for your assistance with our recent NYC vacation package trip.The Hilton Garden Inn was perfect as was it's location to the theater district and wonderful restaurants.
The tickets for Porgy and Bess were dead center in the front row! The tickets for War Horse were equally superb!!
We ventured down 46th Street after Porgy and Bess for a late night dinner and ended up at Swing 46 Restaurant with a 3 course meal for $25, live big band music (Tuesdays and Fridays) for us to dance.
We enjoyed the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Zephar boat cruise and the South St. Pier 17 area.
This was our third or fourth time we used NYCVP and never have been disappointed. We look forward to next year's NYC visit with our 9 year old granddaughter, to celebrate her birthday with dinner at the Am. Girl place. I'll be in touch.
With sincere gratitude,"
MC, Syracuse, NY

"On Tuesday, Sept. 4 we took the Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island tour. Tony was our guide. He did a great job. He was very good at the history, had a good sense of humor, kept us in the right direction. I liked him very much. I travel with a service dog and he was very patient with and even liked my dog. I give Tony a 9+ on a scale of one to ten.
Very truly yours,"

"Erin, I just wanted to send you a quick email to let you know that I just got back from my New York trip and it was great. My son will remember it for the rest of his life. Everything you planned and recommended for us was perfect. Thank you!"

"Hi, We just wanted to let you know how impressed we were with your Tour Guide Hal Glickman. My daughters and I had been on a 911 Tour with him in March and therefore we requested him again on our recent visit/tour a couple of weeks ago (on August 10th). We had another couple with us and, once again, he outdid himself. This gentleman fits this job like a glove - he is a long-time New Yorker so has a wealth of knowledge behind him - and he shares it beautifully!
Please past our best wishes along to him :)))
MK and JK, Oakville, Ontario

"Had a tour with Georgiene today and just wanted to let you know she did a great job. She was very informative and thoughtful to her guests, especially the mother in our party with her two small children. Georgiene went out of her way to help keep an eye on the kids and ensured they were entertained (instead of being bored as children often are on tours). Georgiene was very appreciative of our business and made a great impression with the entire party.
I would definitely recommend Georgiene as a guide to my friends during their future visits to NYC. Thank you for providing us with such an outstanding team member for today's tour.
MJB, Fort Worth TX

"Dear NYCVP: For the past two years, we have scheduled your Ground Zero/Lower Manhattan tour. We have been delighted to have Hal as our guide both years. He is awesome! He brings such a wonderful locals feel to the tour. He loves his City and it shows! He makes his audience love the City too. He is knowledgable, thorough, considerate, helpful and FUN! Thank you for providing such a super host and guide! Next year, I will ask for him again.
My best,"

"Hi there, My name is Heather and my family and I booked and attended the FREEDOM Comprehensive Tour - Ground Zero 911 Memorial & Statue of Liberty on July 30th, 2012. I wanted to write to give you some feedback about the tour. Of course the tour itself was fantastic and quite moving, however, the most positive aspect of the tour was our guide Hal Glickstein(sp). Hal was a wealth of information, extremely personable and very funny. Hal made the tour one of our best experiences in NYC.
We will definitely book another tour with your company the next time we travel to NYC.
Heather, Toronto, Ontario

"Hey Beth,We had a fantastic time. Thank you for arranging everything perfectly!"

"Thank you so much for the wonderful trip we had!!! I’ve forwarded your contact information to several people throughout Lincoln, Nebraska – everyone is wanting to visit New York City. You guys did a terrific job and we plan to re-visit soon!"

"Beth we had an awesome time, great job on all you hard work!!!!
Will refer everyone to you!"

"Just wanted to let you know that Hal Glicksman was a fantastic tour guide on our 9-11 and Statue of Liberty tour we took earlier this week, back on July 3. He was very knowledgable and made sure the group stayed together, which can be tough. He was always looking out for everyone and made himself available for questions at any time.  Hal should be a model for all tour guides to follow.

"I want to tell you what an amazing guide Hal was for our tour. Our girls were too young to remember 9/11 but he really helped them understand the magnitude of what happened that day and understand the scope of the tragedy. He also did a great job of showing the spirit of NYC as they have rebuilt and move on but never forgetting those lives lost. Thank you so much!
SH, Winston Salem, NC

"Every employee of EVERY organization needs a little affirmation now and then and I would be happy to forward a note to your management team to acknowledge your efforts. You have “followed up” without being overly aggressive and have provided both information and ideas to make the trip even better.
The world needs pros like you-it makes the life of THIS semi-retired sports writer that much easier.
I REALLY regret missing out on the journey this year-I had looked into 2-3 local concerts as well…
I was in NYC in 1961 with my auntie….but I was only 6 and don’t recall very much.
I plan a ”travel journal” that will merge with my weekly column and your agency will be named for helping to make it all happen.
All the best to you and yours Beth-enjoy your summer-your “boss” has a ringer on their team!!!!!!
"Eran, I wanted drop you a quick note to Thank You for all of your helping planning our NYC trip. Everything was really great. Nice hotel, good resturants with great food and service. Only one place where the breakfast was not very good was Applebees. We were the first customer of the day and our breakfast was cold all except the potatoes. Seemed like the eggs, sausage and toast was prepared and waited on the plate until the potatoes were done. We did not complain, just thought I would mention this to you. Tours were great and the guides were very knowledgeable. The 48 hr bus pass was a good item. Only one poor tour guide on the bus and that was because her English was very poor, could not understand her very well. NBC Tour, Rockefeller tour and the Freedom Comprehensive Tours were very nice. Both guides were Great. Tickets for Jersey Boys were fantastic, middle section, 2 row seats. Perfect!! Dinner at Sardis, a special treat, excellent food and service. We loved the fact everything was prepaid and we did not have to tip. Great feature to the packages.
I will certainly share this with my friends. We had a Great Trip. 
Thank you,"

"We took the WTC Memorial and Lower Manhattan Tour with Michael Dillinger last Saturday (June 23 – 9-12am). He is a well-informed and delightful person and conducts a group tour with grace...not an easy task. We will definitely try to book another tour with him when we are back in New York. Thanks"
"Thank You so much with your assistance with the below booking. The hotel was great and they treated us like queens. From Debbie at the front desk to Ramon the Operations Manager and his assistant Annie and the Concierge Ben, they all treated us as if we were the only guest in the hotel. I would highly  recommend this property for anyone going to the area. Thanks again"

"This has been the most amazing trip we have ever taken. Thank you so much for helping book this trip for my son."

"We had a wonderful experience today with georgine millen. She is very knowledgeable and handled our group very efficiently. We enjoyed our
time with her."

"We made it back home after long over night delays but we made it. I want to ask if I could give your information to my grandparents. After seeing all our pictures they are very interested in visiting New York. Once again, thank you for helping me make my son's dream come true. Your great!!!"

"Hi Alisa, We just got back from New York last night. Once again all of our arrangements by NYCVP were terrific. I must say however that you have been holding out on me with Georgienne Millen. She was the best guide that I have had to date and hope that you can secure her for my July 2nd and Sep. 12th tours. Everyone of the ladies in my group commented about how much they enjoyed Geogienne’s wealth of knowledge and friendly disposition. She had everyone frequently giggling out of control and left us all with a love for the city. She is truly an ambassador to New York City. Thank you."

"Hello, On behalf of the entire group, I am writing to tell you of our experience on May 4, 2012. We went on the Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island/911 Memorial tour, and our guide, Georgienne Millen, was great. She was kind and personable, with a great sense of humor. She was patient with us when we had questions, and she went out of her way to make sure everyone had a great NY experience.Please extend our appreciation to Georgienne. It was a great tour, and the adults and students alike enjoyed it and learned a lot. Thank you! Sincerely,"
CT, Harborcreek, PA

"Thank you for a great tour and I must say our guide Hal Glicksman was superb and if this is how knowledgable your guides are next time im in New York I wiil use you again."

"I just wanted to say thanks to our tour guide, Georgienne Millen, for a great tour of the 9/11 Memorial with stops at Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. This is the second time we’ve had Georgienne as our tour guide and both times were extremely enjoyable. She’s full of energy, keeps the group moving and knows lots of interesting facts. I would highly recommend her as a tour guide to anyone. Thanks."
"Bethany, I have meant to email you and tell you that we had a wonderful time. Thanks for your help getting us there! The weather was great, we got to the Today Show (my friend's main goal) and we were booked in a great location (thanks to you!). I appreciate your help!"

"Hello, We just want to say how great our tour guide, Georgine, was yesterday when she took us to the Statue of Liberty. She was extremely knowledgeable, witty and accommodating to everything that we wanted to do on the trip. Some tour guides that we have had with other services want to control everything but Georgine was flexible and so easy to get along with the whole time. We would definitely take a tour with Georgine again and we highly recommend her! Thanks again for a great tour!  We will provide this same feedback to Viator.

Best regards,"

"Dear Bethany,
I have meant to write you for some time now to thank you for doing such a wonderful job on our trip to NYC last July (2011). You suggested the Renaissance Hotel in Manhattan and it was great. We found it to be in walking distance to just about everything we wanted to do. It was also a very nice hotel with a great staff. You got us tickets to Wicked and I couldn't believe what great seats you got. We were right up front.  Everything went so smoothly. I will definitely use your company again for our next trip to NYC.
Again, thanks so much for making our trip an enjoyable one."

"For the attention of Alisa Scarantino : Hello, I believe you are the manager of Erin Saba. Erin has been dealing with me regarding my holiday booking to New York. I feel I just had to write in to say how pleased I was with the wonderful service she provided in helping to make our holiday to New York such a great success. Nothing was too much trouble for her and every enquiry I had was always answered promptly with either an answer or an alternative suggestion. Erin well and truely made our holiday the success that it was and I really wanted it to be known by her management how pleased we were with all her help and the fact that she was so efficient with everything that it made the entire holiday go without any hitches. If I am ever fortunate enough to return to New York I will definately be back in touch for her help again!! I would also like to mention that one of the trips we booked , I think it was called the city lights tour was excellent and the guide we had was so wonderful, I only wish I could remember his name but Im sure you can find out as it was the night before Xmas Eve . A very big thank you to every one for all their help in making our holiday a truely wonderful experience. Thank You"

"Well what an amazing time we had in New York. I have fallen in love with the place, so magical at Xmas with all the festivities and the shop windows were amazing !! The helicopter ride was awesome, also the football game between the Giant and Jets !! We just loved it all. The city lights tour was also really good, I have lost  the information to give feed back on that tour and I would have liked to as it was really good.
Loved the Empire State Building and the Rock !! The weather was very kind to us, only a little rain on 2 days and the rest was fine, how lucky were we. If I can think of a way I will be going back again this Xmas, maybe only for a few days but I just loved it so much !!! So I will be back in touch maybe !! Once again thank you for all your help and suggestions, it was great. Had jet lag when I  came back, for weeks I was on New York time !!!  I hope you had a good Xmas and New Year…I am off to dream about NY again, I drive everyone mad talking about it. We even stayed up all night last night to watch the super bowl !!! Take care" 

"Over the past week, I have been working with Jim Hawk to finalize my NYC visit. He has exhibited excellent customer service skills every time I have spoken to him. He is very courteous, upbeat and helpful plus he gave me great advice! You are lucky to have him representing your company."

"Yesterday, 1/7/2011, my family and I went on the 9/11 memorial walking tour. I just wanted to take the time to write a review about the great time we had. Our tour guide, Georgine had a big part in our wonderful experience. She was an extremely friendly and knowledgeable person and truly showed us a great time. We would just like to thank her and let you know we are very thankful for being such a great tour guide and let you know what a great job she did. We highly recommend her for a fun family experience. Thank you,"

"Tour guide Michael Dillinger led a 9/11 Memorial tour on Dec. 24 which I attended. Michael did a superb job of explaining what we were seeing, its historical significance or relationship to the 9/11 attack. He was well informed, interesting and very helpful and courteous to all in attendance."

"Dear tourguides,
I wanted to thank you for a most wonderful experience! On Dec. 17th I took my 17 yr old daughter and her boyfriend on the tour. Chris Lucas is AWESOME!!!!!!! I believe that Mark was the driver also AWESOME!!!!! Chris knows so many interesting facts, kind, creative, thoughtful and a wonderful sense of humor!!!! Thank you for a wonderful memory that we will share forever!!!!
Have a most wonderful New Year,"

"I just wanted to pay my complements toward our tour director Georginne Millen. She was the most knowledgeable tour director I have ever had. She made the day very meaningful for my group. I went on the Freedom tour on December 29. She went above and beyond for my group. She even handled this grumpy man who insisted on the group waiting for him to finish breakfast very well. Because of my experience I will definitely book with this company again."

"We were on the 6:30 pm holiday lights bus tour tonight. Chris Lucas was a very good tour guide. He was very informative and fun to listen to. We enjoyed looking at the lights and learning the history. Anthony did a very good job driving the bus. Thanks to both."

"Good morning,
On Friday, December 16, 2011, I had the opportunity to take a holiday light bus tour. Chris Lucas was our tour guide and he was fabulous! I lived and worked in New York City several years ago and now I come back in December as much as I can. I learned things about New York that I did not know and it was a great way to see the windows.
Thanks to Chris and Rodney for a great adventure and I will recommend this tour to others for the future.
Happy holidays to you and yours,"
"Everyone at Applebees did an outstanding job of making every guest feel special, and that the food was fresh and hot. Each child had plenty of time with Santa, and we got more than one photo handed to us...I think it's well worth the price.
Thanks again Anna.
Enjoy the holiday."

"OMG!....I was on this tour on Sat. Dec 10th the 6;30pm.....I was joined with my 4 other girl friends who try to make a "fun-day" in NYC every year....Well let me tell you....Chris is just terrific!..He was so informative!...It was a history lesson!..We all learned so much, he made the "Grid-Loc" a "happening"... and told us some many details about New York that we were never aware of!...He was pleasant...and patient...and very concerned about all of us....It was truly a pleasure to take the tour, and I have already recommended this to other people!...Give that guy a raise! He and his driver deserve it!....thanks.."

"Hello Jim, Our family had a great time on our trip to New York. I just wanted to thank you for your assistance on making this trip so memorable.
The private transportation service was great, the hotel was beautiful, the thanksgiving dinner was amazing.
We had a wonderful time. Thank you and we look to booking our next trip through you when the time is right."

"Chris Lucas and Valeree were awesome! This was a very informative tour
and most enjoyable. We will recommend you all to other tourists.
Thank you"

"Bethany, Thank you so much for your assistance in making the trip for myself, my friends and family so wonderful! I have told everyone my one word description, "AWESOME." It is always a little apprehensive when making
plans with someone you don't know, but you made it great. I will definitely be contacting NYCVP the next trip I make to NYC, as well as recommending your company. Sincerely,"

"Tonight my friend and I went on the Christmas Bus Tour. The tour guide was Chris Lucas and the driver was Rodney. The tour was great and even better than advertised. Chris was excellent with a great deal of knowledge about NYC. He is also a great ambassador for the city. He made the three hours fly by and gave us all the time we needed at the various stops to take in the Christmas atmosphere. So far the best spent $$$ on our trip. Thanks for offering this tour."

"Dear Erin,
We had such an amazing time on our vacation! Everything went great and we LOVED the parade and our view!!! We just wanted you to know how much we appreciate your time and attention to helping us plan =)
Thanks again,"

"My family had the pleasure of booking our NYC vacations through your company. We had a very enjoyable experience and found the bus tour to be one of our best selections. Chris Lucas was very knowledgeable of NYC and made the tour educational and fun. He did a great job keeping people engaged and sharing many details about the city through the entire bus tour. We have some friends coming to the city in a few weeks and will be sure to recommend them using your package and certainly recommend the bus tour. Thanks for having such a great employee like Chris. It really made our bus tour enjoyable."

"Dear Beth:
 Just wanted to give you some feedback regarding my latest NYC trip.
 You did a marvelous job of getting me to NYC and back. By going in on Monday and leaving Friday and by using LaGuardia instead of JFK, I missed almost all of the holiday air traffic. There were no lines like you see on TV and I was able to get to my destinations quickly.
The hotel was good and was in a perfect location for exploring NYC. Minor problem was that the hotel said I was only booked for three nights and not four but I got that straightened out. Not your company's fault, but the hotel's. I will have to watch my credit card statement to make sure they don't charge me. I know the reservation was confirmed by your staff and I had the travel voucher from you as well which made things easy to argue...
The parade and the Rockettes were unbelievable. We were told we were going to have brunch at the private parade event, however, we were really surprised (pleasantly) that it was not brunch but breakfast AND lunch. The Rockettes tickets were in a good location and the Christmas show was fabulous. I was originally somewhat so-so on going and thought it might be lame. However, they had 3-D and other special effects as well as superb choreography.
Overall, I spent a lot, ate a lot and had a superior vacation. One more thing off my bucket list. If anyone asks, I will highly recommend you and you company.
Thanks to you and NYCVP!!!!!!!!!

"I took the 911 memorial tour on Saturday 10/29 and despite the wind, rain and snow we got to see and learn quite a bit. I found our guide Mark Landman to be very will organized, extremely informative, pleasant and he circulated within the group and made sure everyone was included and had their questions answered.  
As a former New Yorker now living in Florida, it was good to see the sites presented so well. I have already recommended this tour to friends traveling to New York in December.
Thank you for the experience."

"Georgeanne was our tour guide. We visited the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island and the 9-11 Memorial Site Ground Zero. She kept things moving and provided us with a wonderful fact filled day.  She was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, resourceful and versed about New York City. The Ground Zero site tour was especially noteworthy including pictures before, during and after the attack on the World Trade Center. Her review was outstanding. A tour day we will always remember. After a full day she made certain everyone knew their way home.
In a nutshell ----- she was GREAT! OUTSTANDING! EXCELLENT!

"To Whom it may concern,
I was just on a package that I set up with your company to New York. I have never been to New York before and relied very heavily on your company to make this a great tour.
I was not disappointed. I worked with Pamela Jarden to set this all up. She worked very hard and made me look very good.
We also had Marc Landman as our tour Guide. We loved him. He is a wealth of information and lots of fun. His memory for faces and names was amazing.
I am so pleased we had him all 3 days because once you have had the best the others pale in comparison.
I am planning to come back to New York next year and I will be calling Pamela to set it up and I will be requesting Marc for my guide!!!
A very satisfied customer!!!
My NYC trip went really, really well. I’ll admit that I was pretty overwhelmed when I got there but I made it work...
Everything was exactly as it was represented both in the documentation and in conversation. There was not one single glitch or mistake. Everyone who was supposed to be expecting me was expecting me. There was no problem with a single voucher. The Grayline bus system was exceptional. The theater had my ticket at will-call.
I had a great first-time experience in New York and learned a good bit that I can apply to my next trip.
Thanks so much for your help!
Kindest regards,"

I just wanted to tell you thank you very much for assisting us with our trip to New York. My wife and I had a great time and the hotel was excellent. We will certainly call you again in the future when we decide to go back. Thanks again for everything you did."

"Beth, I wanted thank you for helping us plan our trip to New York. We had a great time! A little adventurous to say the least but well worth it.  We want to go back and do some things we did not have time for. I will keep you in mind when we get ready to go. Thanks again!"

"Good Afternoon
Back in 2006-my daughter and I traveled via one of your packages and it was WONDERFUL ... better that I could have done on my own .... and I would love for you to help me again...
We are hoping to attend the 2012 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade ... Yes, I am planning far in advance -- looking on line -- one of your packages is already sold out for this year ... and I would like to have specific things ....
Arrival Tuesday November 20, 2012 return Sunday, November 25, 2012 (Turkey day is the 22nd)
We would like to include: Hotel, great view of parade (even seats outside would be awesome) with either the breakfast or the dinner - which is better?; tour of the balloon site and holiday light tour; Radio City show, two broadway shows (thinking one a matinee and the other one Saturday night), admission to the museum of national history (and all the other goodies that come with) Party of 2
thank you for your time on putting this together .. and yes, again it is for 2012."
"Hi. Beth!
Thank you so much for your help in planning our NYC visit on Memorial Day...
With your help, we were able to enjoy our time in NYC to the fullest. Highlights for 15-year-old Sarah were: scary taxi drives, our room at the Waldorf having a doorbell, shopping at Forever 21 and seeing “Wicked”. After the show she kept saying, “I loved Wicked”, I just loved Wicked.
Our guide for the Ground Zero/Statue of Liberty Tour was wonderful. At first he was skeptical about us having tickets to the crown, but after he understood, he was great in helping us through the procedures at Liberty Island. There were no glitches with using your vouchers anywhere; much easier than carrying cash or loading up credit cards...
I have one last favor to ask of you. I am beginning to plan a trip to San Francisco. Do you know of a “Bethany” in that area that you would recommend to assist me? If not, I’ll muddle through.
If another trip to NYC comes up, I will be calling you."
"Hi There, Just got back from my New York trip and I want to say your service is commendable. I loved all the emails you sent me with great info for my trip, it was our first time in New York and you made it stress free for us. Loved our stay there and will definitely be using your service in the future, I have also been letting all my friends know how wonderful your are and they were all amazed at the service and the package that was waiting for us when we arrived at the hotel.
Thanks again for everything and keep up the great work, you are like a breath of fresh air in this day in age.

"We truly enjoyed our Ground Zero & Statue of Liberty tour with Michael
His insight, guidance, and info was great. He made it a great trip! He gave wonderful directions for after the trip concluded and felt well with some of the "goofy" questions from those on the tour with professionalism.
Thanks to NYC Trips and Michael for a great vacation!

"Hello -- On April 28, 2011, we took the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island Escorted Tour. Our guide was Georgianne Miller. (I hope I spelled her name correctly.) We would like to offer our comments about our guide. 
We have visited six continents and taken dozens of guided tours on our visits. Of all the guides we have had, Georgianne is one of the absolutely very best. She shepherded us carefully, looking after our individual needs, including helping us get through the cumbersome and frustrating security procedures. She is knowledgeable and delights in sharing her knowledge. She is a superb communicator and easy to understand, giving us back stories and interesting anecdotes in addition to the historical data about the sites. Her style of presentation is delightful, with humor and asides lending color to her presentation. She is the antithesis of the human tape recorder we have seen so often.
And on top of all that, she is simply charming. 
If we had a guide like her on every guided tour we have taken, we could ask for nothing more. 
Please thank her again for us, and also wish her a speedy and continuing recovery.

"Hi Bethany !
Just wanted to say that we had a "fantastic" time in NYC. Everything worked out...hotel was very nice....used our vouchers for problems... & GREAT seats for Jersey Boys!. Thanks again for helping me out..I know I had SO many questions....but we're already talking about going time I'll be a little more "seasoned" :)
Thanks AGAIN"

"Your tour was awesome and I wish that my friend and I would have taken the
tour when we first got to the city because you were so full of good, no
great information!
I took over 2000 pictures on the trip!  And, I think it is safe to say that
I fell in love with NYC!  I can't wait to go back.

"Hey Alisa,
I just wanted to thank you for all the help you extended to me with my group trip to NYC last week. Everything was fantastic!! The tours we took were outstanding. Tony was a fabulous tour guide who obviously knew his way around the city. I so appreciate him and the job he did for us.
I will certainly use your company again for any future trips I take. Thanks again for all your assistance over the past several months!! I would highly recommend your company to anyone!
"Hi Bethany,
I just wanted to let you know that our Thanksgiving NYC trip, made possible through your company, was absolutely fabulous. Everything was definitely a VIP experience at a reasonable price. Here are some examples:
Our hotel was is a great location and was super nice. (Hilton New York)  Our daughter marched in the Macy's parade and the parade route was just outside our hotel basically. We were only a few minutes walk from Times Square and another 15min walk to Macy's.
Our seats at the broadway production of Chicago were in the second row even though we did not pay second row prices.
The Thanksgiving Feast/Buffet at Rosy O'Gradys was outstanding and we could walk to the restaurant from our hotel.
Our knowledgeable/humorous guide at the Statue of Liberty/Ground Zero tour allowed us to bypass the 2hr line thus allowing us direct access to the security tent thereby saving us valuable time.
It was a terrific time and we highly recommend your tours.
"Dear NYCVP,
We are e mailing following our fantastic tour with Tony last Sunday,  21st February 2011.
After Jennifer was so helpful in swapping our chosen tour date from Monday to Sunday, we were looking forward to our tour early Sunday morning. From the outset, Tony was friendly, welcoming and informative. His pleasant, clear and interesting presentation was such a privilege to witness. He managed to mix humour and history with ease and style, without being disrespectful to the sites we were walking around (WTC in particular). Not only was the depth of his 
knowledge impressive, but his tips for the best way to see the sites and guidance throughout the tour was excellent!
The tour (and Tony) was so memorable that we have mentioned it every day since and have wholly recommended it to anyone who will listen!!
Thank you Tony, and thank you NYCVP!
We look forward to returning to New York in the future and once again 
booking a tour with you!
Kind regards,"

"Had a GREAT weekend in NYC. Jersey boys was FANTASTIC !!  (I was in 7th grade when The Four seasons came on the scene!!)
Did a little too much Irish Pub stuff but it was a Xmas present to an Irish girl…..oh well???
Room was good and all went smooth. Will be going again sometime soon and be sure to get back with you.
Hey, next time , could you do something about the howling winds…tuff walking around like that ! ha ha

"Hi There,
I wanted to contact you to let you know that our tour guide, Georgienne was Fabulous! She kept the group of 21 moving along and gave us valuable knowledge about ground zero and lady Liberty.
She was very entertaining and always made sure her "ducks were in a row".
We saw her sincere concern when our reserved tickets for the Statue of Liberty weren't going to be honored due to only one path being shoveled for people waiting to get on the ferry. She stuck with us & did her best effort to get us ahead of the crowd with phone calls.
She offered us the option to go the next day or get a refund. Then she stayed with the group of 18 remaining. She walked and educated us as we moved up in the general line.
She has a good relationship with the people who were working at the Ferry station. A gentleman came up and told Georgienne that they will accommodate our reserved tickets and lead us to the front of the line.
I booked this tour on a high recommendation from a group of friends who took the same tour with Georgienne in September.
I will pass on recommendations to my friends looking to travel to NYC to your site and recommend Georgienne as well.
Please let Georgienne know about this email.
Sincere gratitude,"

Beth, I just wanted to thank you for helping me plan a perfect trip for my wife. We both enjoyed it much more than I ever expected. The restaurants, the hotel, the airlines all went very smoothly. We also purchased a Statue of Liberty walking tour that was fantastic. Daryl the tour guide was so entertaining. Thank you again, I'll defeinately recomend your services and use them myself again in the future, I'm sure."

"Dear Staff of NYCV Packages
Our party attended the tour of Ground Zero/Statue of Liberty on Wednesday 12/29. I just wanted to thank the tour guide for her great tour, her concern for us when things didn't quite go as expected and her brilliant and detailed knowledge of the whole area.
I would be very grateful if you could pass on our thanks to her - it was a very cold day, lots of disruption after the snow and holiday and she did a brilliant job of looking after us all.
Thank you very much."

"Hi Beth, Happy New Year! We had a wonderful time even with the crazy weather. The hotel was great.
We ended booking yet another night. They were calling for the snow to end at 6:00 p.m. Monday and on Sunday morning we were afraid that the hotel would be book ed on Monday night so we extended another night. We weren't sure what was going to happen with the weather.
Well.... it made me realize what a great deal I got from booking through you- soooo thank you so much! I will be booking through you again and have already told my friends to use you when they book hotels in NYC. Couldn't believe the price difference.
Just wanted to thank you again and wish you a great New Year!!!"

"I went on your holiday lights tour on December 4th and just want to say that Chris Lucas was a great tour guide and our bus driver, Spears, was great also.  I would definitely recommend this tour to my friends."

"I would just like to say what a great time we had on the holiday lights tour, our guide Chris was really great he gave us so much information we learned so much.
We saw so much and the stops he made were great, we saw the beautiful windows of Lord and Taylor and Macys up close as we were able to get off the bus and take some great photos, we had plenty of time to see the Tree at Rockefeller Plaza, it was just great and a big thanks also to our driver Spears who coped well with the busy traffic.
I would really recommend this trip to anyone visiting NYC at Christmas time.
Thanks again"

"On Saturday, December 4, 2010, KE & I took your Holiday Lights Tour from the Sheraton Hotel. I just wanted to let you know that it was amazing. Our tour guide, CHRIS LUCAS was not only entertaining but his knowledge of New York City was incredible.  This was a fantastic experience from start to finish. The bus driver we had SPEARS made our ride just as pleasurable. I will certainly recommend this to all my family & friends. I a so very happy I made this choice for this tour.

"On Saturday, December 4, 2010, my friend, LB, and I had taken the New York City Holiday Lights Motorcoach Sightseeing Tour (left from Sheraton NY Hotel at 6:30 p.m.).
Our tour guide, Chris Lucas, was amazingly terrific. He is extremely knowlegable of the history of New York City and is very entertaining. He allowed us plenty of time to see the sights when we made our stops. He made our tour another great holiday memory.
I have to also mention our bus driver, Spears, was very good.
I would definitely recommend this tour to my friends and family.

"Again, thanks for your great help, looking forward to return to NYC, of course using your agency, and to recommend you to friends and family." 

"I wanted to tell you what a wonderful time we had viewing the Macy's Parade.  Alisa was very helpful, friendly, and overall a great hostess when we arrived at
the breakfast. Thanks for a good event and having employees like Alisa."

wanted to thank you and beth, I got the package the other day--looks great, we are looking forward to New York, will tell people about your service and use you again"

"Hello Beth
just wanted to say thank you for organising the package and also let you know that I had a fabulous time in New York. I love your city!

My wife and I just got back from NYC.  We had a friggin blast. I think our 10 year wedding anniversary will always be remembered as our favorite trip.  Thanks again for your services and insight. I will definitely use your services again in the future. had a great time!"

"My husband Dave and I wanted to comment about how much we enjoyed our Ground Zero Lower Manhattan tour with Marc Landman on Saturday, October 30th. Marc was personable and professional. It was a small group, so we got to ask a lot of questions, which he answered openly and enthusiastically.
Please tell him thanks again for us."
AP and DP

"Hi, Bethany:
Just a note to let you know that our entire group loved our trip to New York on October 24. Thanks so much for making it easy. As you know, we were meeting in New York City from Canada, US and UK. Because you were able to put the charges on our individual credit cards,it made our job a lot easier because we didn't have to figure out any exchange rates. It also helped having some of the major expenses out of the way.
We loved the Marriott Marquis Hotel! We will definitely be recommending this hotel to anyone else visiting New York. The bus tour was great and all the attractions tickets were ideal for us. The only inconvenience was the fact that not all of us wanted to do the same things and some of the venues required ID. If it is possible, six individual tickets would have been preferable. Even groups of two or three became difficult, if the person whose name was on the voucher didn't want to go to that venue.
Overall, though, we had no complaints with the service and we really enjoyed our breakfast at Applebee's. Again, thanks for the great service - we will keep it in mind if we ever return to New York City and I definitely will recommend your service to anyone I know who is traveling to New York.
Take care,"

"Hi Joel
I just wanted to thank you for organising such an fascinating tour. Georgienne was the perfect guide - knowledgeable, witty and and kind. She imparted a whole wealth of information, but still managed to keep it interesting. By far the best guide I've had for a long time.
I'll definitely look up next time I'm in town!
All the best"

"Our trip was awesome and we did not have 1 issue. You did a fantastic job and I truly appreciate everything you did to take care of us.
Thank you again."

"Erin: I just wanted to thank you for your help with our New York trip. We returned from our trip on Sunday, 10/10/10. We had a fabulous time, and can't wait to visit again. Thanks to you everything from the hotel, the hop-on hop-off tour, the Broadway show, and everything in between went very smoothly, and we encountered not one problem. On behalf of everyone in our group (see attached picture) THANKS again for all your help!" 

"Hi Sibyl,
I want to thank you once again for the wonderful walking tour this past Saturday. I was an art major in high school and college so this tour was of particular interest to me.
I had never noticed all the wonderful carvings "on" the buildings. I had always marveled at the beautiful architecture in NYC, Hartford and Boston, but you pointed out so many hidden treasures buried among the skyscrapers in NYC and within their atriums and lobbies.
I would love to do the tour again some time, you made it so enjoyable and the time went by so quickly!"

"My brother, the girls, and I had an awesome, unforgettable time. It’s been a pleasure doing business with you, Beth. You, too, are a terrific asset to NYCVP."

"I just wanted to comment on tour guide Chris Lucas and the great job he did on the bus to Yankee Stadium.
Very interesting stuff, and I’m proud of the Yogi Berra autographed magazine I won. Very cool!
He’s a natural, and an asset to NYCVP.
Thanks to Beth, too. She arranged a great trip."

"Thank you very much for arranging our NY tour. We were picked up on time, tour operator and driver very friendly and knowledgeable. My sisters, who have never been to NY, enjoyed it very much.
Thanks again, "

"Hi Celia,
I just wanted to write a quick note to let you know that we had a great time in NYC. I wanted to thank you for all your help in setting up the trip for us. The hotel was great!  It was in the perfect location for us. It was great to be so close to the parks and WTC site. It was very nice watching the boats come in from NJ on Mon morning. I was happy to say that we didn't have any surprises as far as your package was concerned. I was afraid of hidden costs or fees of which there were none. Thank you. We didn't get to swap out the tickets, but it was OK because the kids loved the wax museum. We also didn't have a chance to do the lower Manhattan and Brooklyn parts of our bus tour. We simply ran out of time. All and all, I would recommed your site and the hotel to any families who are planning a trip to NYC. I will also use your site again when we visit NYC again. The kids are asking to go back! Thank you very much and have a great weekend."

"Beth-- we got back last night from our trip to New York, booked entirely through you, and it was FANTASTIC! Every single thing was exactly as planned, came off without a hitch, and was awesome. Thank you so much! Our dinner at Sardi's was great--and Sting was at the next table! Our bike ride was perfect, perfect, perfect. And our seats to Chicago were fourth row, dead center. You even get credit for the weather (which was gorgeous)! The Sheraton was perfectly located and everything was awesome. Thank you so much. We are two happy customers. Please e-mail some link where I can see where else we can book trips through you. Thanks again,"

"Just wanted to thank you for booking our trip to NYC. My husband was a little skeptical about the vouchers but everything worked out great. We even got upgraded to a nicer room at the hotel. Couldn’t have been better – I will definitely consider using NYCVP again. Thanks!"

"Hello!  My mom, sister and I took the Ground Zero/Lower Manhattan tour on Saturday September 4, 2010. Marc Landman was our tour guide. He did a fantastic job! He knows so much and was very interesting. We had a great time and learned so much. I’ve been the NYC many times, but I have never taken a tour, so we thought we would give it a try. I will definitely try other tours after this one. This was definitely a highlight of our trip and I can’t say enough how pleased we were with Marc as a tour guide.  He was awesome!! Thanks,"

"I took the Lower Manhattan Walking Tour on Friday, August 6 with Emily.  The tour was great and Emily was a terrific guide. I saw lots of interesting sites and Emily provided excellent information for us to ponder. I would definitely recommend this tour to friends and would take a tour with Emily again."

"Hi Beth, You may not remember me, but your name is being lifted up with praise by my mother and cousins for the spectacular job that you did for us in New York (our trip was Aug 17th - Aug 21st). It was wonderful! We loved our hotel and everything ran so smoothly it was like magic. My mom said it was a birthday to remember and JC (who called you in late July/early August and asked for a package identical to mine) and his fiancee are already talking about going back and have added your web-site to their favorites list. Amateurs - you've been on my favorites list for months.
Thanks so much for everything! Best to you always,"

"Chris Lucas was a great tour guide.  We enjoyed the tour and the insite into the Yankee team.  He gave great info on the New York sites and the Yankee team. Thank You,"

"Hi, Our trip to Ground Zero and the Statue of Liberty was made more enjoyable and interesting with the help of our tour guide, Darryl. He added just the right touch of humor and respect for the sites we saw."

"Hi, Just wanted to drop you a note and let you know how much we enjoyed Chris Lucas as our tour guide on the way to the Yankees game on Thursday, August 19th, 2010. He was very well versed in his knowledge and did some fun trivia questions on the way to the game. Of all the tour guides that we had on our trip, he was the most interesting."

"Bethany, I first heard of NYCVP in 2005. We were sitting in Applebee's and a couple sitting next to us had heard what a problem we had with our Hotel reservations. They said using NYCVP was the best decision they ever made. We ended up using your services the next year for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade week and couldn't agree more! We stayed at the Barclay hotel which was a GREAT location. You got us amazing tickets for Phantom and Mama Mia. We visited the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, Empire State Building, Top of the Rock, and the NBC tour. All of which were absolutley wonderful! I haven't been back to NYC since then, but I really want to this year. I LOVED being seeing the Parade live and in person! It was a childhood dream come true. Now the only problem is the TV version sucks..... ok maybe not sucks is a strong word but its just not the same as being there and seeing the sights, sounds, and smells of the city! Anyways, when I was getting some quotes to see what I could afford I did not see the Barclay as an option to stay. Is it available or am I too late? My fiancee and I want to surprise her sister and my sister with the trip so we need to have 2 beds. Everytime I put in 4 adults it gives me NO options. Are there any packages left for 4 adults in one room? Thanks for the help!"

"Hi Bethany, Just wanted to write to let you know that our trip was GREAT!! My children and I had a FABULOUS time in New York City, topped off by second row seats to the Lion King. I would definitely use NYCVP to book our next trip to NYC (and there WILL be another one)!! Thank you so much for all of your help.
Sincerely, A very happy customer,"

"Hi Bethany!
I just wanted to say thank you!  We went to New York and did not experience any problems with our reservations...just like you said :)  We used most of the coupons that you sent and we had a great time. I just wanted to say thank you for all your help and if we go to NY again I will definately contact you...I will also tell anyone else I know that is going to NY to give you a call :) Do you handle only NY reservations or do you offer other destinations as well?

"Hi Beth! Our transportation went fine, although we forgot to give the driver inbound our voucher. Not sure if that is a problem or not?
The carriage ride was fine but we did have a slight communication problem regarding Clinton Park Stables…we were told by several drivers that the stables were out of business. We eventually found a driver who explained to another driver what to do and we were accommodated.
The hotel was great and a most excellent location for our first trip. If we go again, I’ll definitely pick another location, less busy if possible!....but there were many bars close by to stumble into and out of!
We also went to Birdland on Friday night. The Tommy Igoe band plays there almost every Friday night, it’s close by and an excellent location/food/music selection for big band enthusiasts! They also play the early slot (5PM-7PM) so you have time to take in the town on a Friday night!
Thanks for all your help and patience!"

"I wanted to thank my agent JIM for an outstanding job in booking my trip.  The seats I had for the Lion King on August 14, 2010 were so perfect for my 9 yr old daughter it was awesome and something out of this world. Whole trip was perfect for a 1st time to NYC the harbor seaport was spectacular and loved having a choice of what to due every day of our stay. I am so glad to have booked with you. It was truly a wonderful experience. Thank you"
SB and JB, Niagara Falls

"We just returned from your tour of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, and enjoyed every moment. However, we lost track of our tourguide Darryl, and wish to send him a small gratuity with our thanks for a job well done. Would you please give me a NY office address where I can send a small note? I would appreciate it. Many thanks,"

"thank you - the shopping tour was great. The Statue of Liberty trip was great - we had an amazing tour guide Darrel, he made it wonderful."

"Hi, We just got back from a NYC vacation package. I just want to provide feedback that everything was great, voucher system was super, made things very easy.  Vouchers for the $20 a day parking in Central garage were VERY helpful... Also….a wonderful recommendation we got from one of your advisors on the phone was the use of to help us get around on foot and by subway….invaluable!!!
Thanks for all your help, especially Bethany who helped me book everything."

We just wanted to drop a quick line to say how excellent Marc L was as a tourguide of Lower Manhattan/Ground Zero during our trip to NYC (tour date was Saturday 8/7/10). We really enjoyed having a true 'local' lead us around for the morning!
Thanks for the great experience,"

"Hi Bethany,
I just wanted to let you know how much my son and I enjoyed our trip last week to NY City. All of the travel and sightseeing went perfectly. Also, the Sheraton New York was a wonderful hotel. Unfortunately, the Yankees lost, but that's ok - we loved just being at the game!
We had a wonderful time and will recommend your website to anyone we know that is planning a trip to New York. We hope to go again in the future."

"To whom it may concern,
Chris Lucas was our tour guide on the trip we booked which included tickets and bus service to and from the Yankee game. We only expected transportation, but Chris did an excellent job on giving us many facts of the upper north side during the tour. Taking his time to point out facts of interest as we went. Most of our vacation was planned south of 52nd street so it made this portion of the trip very meaningful. Chris went well beyond our expectations, not only was he very knowledgeable about the Yankee's but also the upper north side of the city. Please let Chris know that he is doing a great job and it was very much appreciated!

"Hi Beth,
Just wanted to let you know now that we are back from our trip. We had a wonderful time. The hotel was great everything. We could not had a better location. The highlight of the trip for me was going to see the play Fences..With Denzel Washington, and 4 rows in front of us was Diana Ross and her Daughter..OMG   My husband loved The Mets baseball game..We love NY..He wants to come back again to visit..and see more of your wonderful city... please stay in contact and let us know of any special you might have.. Thanks again"

"Hey, Just got back.
Promises, Promises is Fantastic, The Addams Family was great, Phantom was awesome. All seats were great, thanks.
Edison Hotel was great like before.
Langan's dinner was fantastic, the food, atmosphere, staff were all great. Will eat there again, even without meal plan.
Planet Hollywood food and staff was great, Appleby's was good.
...Next time maybe 4 shows.  Thanks for all of your help. It was great.
Thanks again"

"I am writing to you to commend your employee, Beth Tenenbaum. I recently booked a trip to NYC with Beth for my entire family and she was fantastic to work with. As you can imagine with 14 family members each one had at least 20 questions which required me to go back and forth with Beth several times.  Her responses were swift and accurate and she answered all of my questions with ease.
Beth booked my trip, added one extra person days later and made this an extremely pleasurable experience for me.
Please commend her on my behalf.

"Erin -
Just wanted to let you know what a GREAT time the four of us had celebrating our 60th birthdays in NYC!
Everything was fantastic.  Probably the best part was our walking tour of Ground Zero and the Statue of Liberty with guide Georgiana. She was spectacular - we could have walked around with her for days! She, alone, would have made the trip worthwhile.
It took us a few days to recuperate and we're still going through all our pictures but we've all decided we would go again and definitely will book through your company.  You made it so easy - all we had to do was show up and have fun!!!"
Vickie, Rose, Donna & Jill

"Beth, Got back last night from our trip to NYC. What a blast! Other than a much smaller room than I remember from our trip 2 years ago, everything went perfectly. The gentleman that did our tour from the hotel to Yankee stadium (Chris Lucas) was the best tour guide I’ve ever had in any city on any tour. He was able to show us sites from the hotel to the stadium and also a history of the Yankees. (I understand his father has worked in the Yankee organization for over 50 years). Anyway he was fantastic. The shuttle service (Super Shuttle) was a little disorganized going back to the airport but for the price all and all it was fine. (Much better than the last time when the driver texted the entire drive.
I’m pretty sure we’ll be using you again. In fact if you could work up a price for a trip back in early Dec. for 2 (both over 62) for about 3 or 4 day I’d like to see it. NO RUSH because it might just be a dream.
Thanks again."

"Thank you to NYCVP...we had a great vacation experience!
Everything we planned through you was first class:
- the Sheraton on 7th Ave was the perfect location (we were glad we didn't pick some of the other hotels that we had found searching on our own but that when we saw where they were during our visit were not as optimal of a helped ensure we ended up in the right location)
- the 4th of July barbecue, tour and boat trip for the fireworks was fantastic (my only suggestion would be maybe to use a smaller boat company that can go further up the Hudson for closer viewing of the fireworks....we were on a large boat and the one furthest from the fireworks...the Captain of the boat said that because he was a bigger boat he had to stay further away per direction of the authorities....though he did give a great scenic cruise though up the East River and out around the Status of Liberty enroute to the Hudson River that we also really enjoyed) and the NYCVP host/tour guide made it a wonderful event
- the Broadway tickets were fantastic...we had great seats for Jersey Boys
- the Super Shuttle connections from/to JFK worked just fine
- the lower Manhattan walking tour was great (I sent a separate note to complimenting our tour guide Chris Lucas
- the vouchers provided us with nice options and were easy to use
- all of the booking and informational emails from Beth were very timely and of great assistance
Thanks...we loved our vacation in NYC and will plan to use your services again on our next trip there.
The McElroy family

Thank you so much for making our vacation to NYC so special and effortless!  We only experienced one problem, and that was our fault. When we typed the hotel's address into our GPS we had to use 6th Avenue because Avenue of the Americas wasn't listed, and we inadvertently selected 6th Avenue in Brooklyn instead of Manhattan. Needless to say, we got quite the motor tour of the city and two trips through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel.  In the end, it worked out really well because we got to see parts of the city we wouldn't have otherwise seen.  In addition to a great laugh, it gave us a good story to tell when we got home.
The hotel you selected for us was great and so convenient to everything we wanted to do. As a bit of info for you, the parking garage at the Hilton is operated by Central Parking, so we were able to park at the hotel and use our parking certificates with only a small additional charge because of the size of our SUV. Upon check-in, the clerk knew we were concerned about the bedding being "full" rather than "queen". (I wasn't sure if you had mentioned my concern to them when you secured the reservation?) The clerk graciously offered a roll-away bed if we desired, and insisted on waiving the additional $30/ day charge! However, the room was spacious and lovely, with the bedding very comfortable and more than adequate for us and the kids. It couldn't have been any better! We LOVED The Lion King and all the additional activities you helped us add to our package. We chose to view the Top of the Rock late in the evening and the view with the lights was spectacular! Our son truly enjoyed his graduation trip and hasn't stopped talking about it.
We are so glad we found you and we will certainly recommend you to any friends and family who are planning a trip to the city.
Please feel free to use our comments in advertisement if you feel it will be useful to you.
Thanks again,"

"Hi Bethany!
I wanted to let you know that our trip to New York last week was great! I was very impressed with the quality of the vacation package that you put together for our group. The hotel, tours, and theatre tickets were fantastic!!
I would highly recommend your excellent services to family and friends travelling to NYC!
Thank you again, you helped to make our trip a very special experience!
All the very best,"

"My husband and I are just returning from a weekend in New York City and I just wanted to say thank you to Georgenia for taking us on the tour of Ground Zero and to the Statue of Liberty. There were only 6 of us for the tour and I was afraid that the tour would be canceled; but I am so glad Georgenia came! It was a very informative and enlightening tour and Georgenia was very professional, knowledgeable, as well as enthusiastic..... as if it was her first tour! It was almost like she got a kick out of seeing the sights through the eyes of her tourists...over and over again! Her enthusiasm seemed only to be equaled by her passion for her home town and its people, especially at Ground Zero and Ladder 10 Company. Both my husband enjoyed her "down to earth" style and appreciated all the "tidbits" of information she gave us, both from the historical aspects of Ground Zero and the Statue of Liberty; to how to find our way back to our hotel using the subway! We would definitely recommend this tour and Georgenia as your guide!"

"We wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our trip to New York City July 3rd to July 9th. We found it so helpful to have booked all our activities, hotel, air and shuttle through you. All our time was spent just having fun!
Emily Liedel was particularly thorough July 3rd and 4th. She shared lots of details and info with us and we felt taken care of.
If we ever visit NYC again, we certainly will check your website."
RB and DB

"Bethany - just wanted you to know we had the best time, LOVED the Intercontinental Barclay, highly recommend it, walking distance to everything although I think we needed at least 2 more days their, missed the museums and shopping. Thanks again for your help.."

"We very much enjoyed our tour package arranged through your company. The
individuals we worked with communicated clearly and promptly. Everything
promised was delivered. We will use your company again when we need help with a New York visit.
We have one suggestion. We participated in a tour sold as a "walking tour of ground zero". In fact, the tour was far more than that. It was an outstanding tour given by your guide Hal Glicksman. We think you need to rename the tour so that the name better represents all that is shown on the walk. We did, indeed, see ground zero, but we also saw Wall street, the area in lower Manhattan near ground zero and parts of mid-town where the tour started. We received more than our money's worth.
Overall, we were fully satisfied with all aspects of the service you provided. Thank you."

"I wanted to let you know that we spent 4th of July in New York City on the Beach Picnic and 4th of July cruise package from NYCVP. Had a great time.  The boat was AWESOME. We had front row seats as the boat was the first in line next to the firework barge. The food on the boat was good as well. Very satisfied with our experience there.
Georgine was very funny and personable. Lots of fun facts about NYC that you wouldn’t normally get from a tour guide.
Thanks again!"

"Had a great time; heat wasn’t too bad (used to it from FL.) Hotel was good and great location; 4th was really neat on the water. B-way shows a big hit, especially Wicked. Thx for your help."
"Hi Beth,
Ashley and I just returned from our trip to NYC. I want to thank you for making it an awesome trip. We had a great time. The Hilton Hotel on Ave of the America's was in an excellent location and gave us easy access to all of the sights. The hotel gets 4 stars in my book. Seats for Wicked were prime and the play was outstanding. All of the vouchers were accepted with ease...
Once again, thank you for and outstanding job. Ashley and I love you and your company."

"Celia -  Fences was awesome. Probably the best play on Broadway. Denzel and Viola were amazing.  At the end of the play, the applause was so loud you could not hear yourself think. On Friday, we went to the Blue Note Jazz club in the Village to see Dee Dee Bridgewater.
Our flight on Sunday was canceled so we spent an extra day in the big apple....... okay, we caught a cab to Chinatown, walked to Little Italy, SOHO, NOHO, Eastside, Village, and then a cab back to Mid-Town...I'm still tired..   Overall, another great anniversary weekend.
Thanks again for your assistance,"

"Hi Beth: We had a wonderful time!  We loved "The Phantom" and The Statue of Liberty as well. Hotel was great; in a perfect location; even complete with great restaurant. We had beautiful weather and the Gray Line Manhattan all day tour bus was perfect. We were able to see so much more in the short time we had. Can't wait to go again and see more shows. I promise you will be the one we will contact for our next trip there. Thank you so much for everything!"

"Marc was our tour guide for ground zero. Without a doubt the best Tour we  have ever had any where. Marc gets 10 stars."

"Celia, We had such an amazing time, I don't even know if I could pick my favorite part! I would have to say that, being one of the most patriotic people in America, I really appreciated the Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island package! It was amazing because we were able to walk through at our own pace and once the guide, I can't remember his name but he was really funny, got us to the Statue of Liberty he said we were on our own. It was nice to be able to look at everything and take it all in at our own pace. We eve climbed the million step to the pedestal! WHAT A VIEW!!!
Also, I loved being able to walk to the Phantom of the Opera show from our room. The show was AMAZING! I am so glad that I talked Richard into sitting thru it. The cool thing also, we were there during the 75th NFL Draft so we went and saw a lot of NFL coaches and personnel outside of Radio City Hall! That was really cool for Richard! We had soooooo much fun!!! I can't wait to go again! Hopefully next year! Thank you again!! I'll e-mail you when we are ready to go again!!"

"Just want to send a compliment to your guide Tony. Our visit was so complete at his expert commentary and guidance. I learned so much even how to navigate the subway. Thanks." 
T.S. Jones

"Hi Erin, I have been looking forward in receiving your e-mail confirming my family's Lion King tickets and your news further below with the excellent seats in orchestra makes me extremely happy that I booked my New York trip through NYCVP."

"Dear Beth,
Just wanted to thank you for all you did to make our vacation wonderful.  Everything from the hotel to theater tickets and dinner at The View was great.  All arrangements were just as they should have been. My granddaughter was very impressed with everything we had planned and everything went perfectly.  We both loved New York and I want to come again to see the things we didn't have time for. I will be so happy to give you a call and let you help with the next one.
Thanks again,"

"Thanks Bethany for the Speedy follow-up!
I found your Website through a Yahoo search. It was quite easy to navigate and enabled me to see a lot of options. I did phone your number to finalise the reservation as my wife and I had a few additional questions since it was our first time visiting New York city. Jim the rep was extremely helpful and polite, a pleasure to do business with. He gave us a few tips about the city that will be very helpful. We are celebrating my wife’s birthday while we are there and I’m sure she will have lasting memories. Thanks again,"
Suzanne and Jean

"The Big Apple was wonderful, the whole trip was great. So much to see, lots & lots of walking. We took the subway & smiled & spoke to the locals, walked in the snow, saw a show (Jersey Boys), had a ride through a snowy Central Park in a horse & carriage, went to fabulous museums (not enough time), went in a water taxi to see lady Liberty & the Brooklyn Bridge, ate NY pizza, saw Ground Zero, went to mass at St. Pats Cathedral & renewed our wedding vows (yes he still wants me), drank strange beer (served with a slice of orange), sat at a moody bar & had night caps, etc. etc. Yes I think you could say we rather enjoyed it all.
I have been singing your praises (& NYC-TRIP) to all who will listen.  
Kind Regards,"
CB, Australia

"Celia, We had a wonderful time in NYC!  The weather was beautiful -- we had the weekend between two snowstorms.  The Hilton was all you said it would be and we loved The Lion King.  Due to parking concerns at Penn Station in Baltimore we cancelled our train reservations and took the Megabus instead.  Forty dollars each round trip -- a real deal! All in all, a wonderful and special way to spend our birthdays.
Thank you so much for your help! We may do it again in a year or two -- I'll definitely keep you number in my Rolodex.
Happy Spring!

"I have received all checks and credits at this point that were due for my refund.  I greatly appreciate you help in planning and canceling my trip.  I will certainly contact you again if we want to plan another NY vacation. Thanks for everything that you have done."

"Hi Celia, We have been dealing w/Erin Madigan re: a trip to NYC. We are a couple of country girls from Rural Wayne County Ohio who have never been to New York City. I'm (Jan) a nurse and Sherry is a city employee. Sherry's husband is taking off on his motorcycle in Aug. so we decided we were coming to New York. We are so excited but know nothing. Erin has been a Godsend. She has been totally professional and very, very helpful in answering all of our crazy questions! We just wanted to tell her supervisor because working w/the public we both know that many are to eager to criticize but not ready to compliment. We are looking forward to seeing the many things your city has to offer. Thanks again & kudos to Erin."
Jan & Sherry

"Hi Celia,
It’s taken me a week to get to this. I’m sorry. I wanted to share with you that our trip was a real joy. Your help was invaluable. You were right – the Hilton was excellent. They were able to give us adjoining rooms – something I hadn’t dared to hope for.
Thank you again for your help. We went to the ESB, the Top of the Rock, Ground Zero, In the Heights, Brooklyn Diner, M&M and Hershey stores plus had our children’s caricatures drawn by corner vendors. Plus we relaxed at night watching the Olympics. Lots of fun. We hope to use your help again in the future. Take care,"

"Hello Melody,
We (Sonya and Iva) want to tell you how much we enjoyed the Vacation you planned for us. This traveling duo had an awesome vacation to New York July 4-8, 2009. The Warwick is perfectly located in Manhattan…right in the middle of everything. Our accommodations were comfortable and quiet. Everything and everyone we met was very nice.
Our only "near death" experience happened on the commute from the airport to the hotel. We were not prepared for the "bumpy ride" and near misses encountered in New York traffic. None- the-less we made it to our destination in one piece. It was thrilling and death defying.
We took four bus tours: Downtown (Wall Street, Macy’s, the Seaport) and Uptown (Central Park, Harlem) …to mention two. Our various tour guides were great. The guides told us historical or rarely known fact about the city. Each shared a bit of their unique experience living in New York as part of their very informative and funny commentary. Additionally, who knew so many movies and TV shows filmed on location in so many different sections of the city. Whoa.
We visited St. Paul’s Chapel and witnessed the amazing testament of the bravery and devastation of 9/11. We were so touched by this moment that we did not take pictures in the Chapel. We allowed ourselves to feel the weight of the events (joyous and sorrowful) that occurred here.
The food…Oh My…Wow…tasted sooooo…ggoooood! NUF said!! Well there was that $50 breakfast. Other than that…NUF said!!
The Empire State Building was intriguing, fascinating, and had all my (Iva) butterflies fluttering about…. (Sonya) for a long moment just stood still.
The Broadway musical, Wicked, was supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!!! We (the entire audience) loved it (as in 3 standing O’s). We floated back to the Warwick on a high that lingers still. Prepare…we will ask you to match or replace this high with another (we’re smiling) wonder vacation...this one (New York) will be darn near impossible for you to surpass.
Hopefully, we were able to capture through the camera lens the breath taking moments we experienced.
Thanks for the adventure and the memories! With our sincerest Thank –You," Sonya and Iva, Beaumont TX

"To All, I just wanted to thank you all for making our vacation in New York for New Year’s Eve the best it could be! The hotel accommodations were great, & the free tourist attractions you threw in were unforgettable. Your staff could not have been more helpful and I will definitely recommend you to all my friends who might be traveling to New York.  We’ve got some great pics and most of all it was one of our best family vacations ever! The memories will last our lifetimes! Thanks again NVCP! Regards,"


"Hi Beth,
Just wanted to touch base with you after our NYC vacation. We had a great time and you did a great job with our reservations, etc... I will certainly recommend your company to my friends and colleagues who plan to travel to NYC. Sincerely,"

"Well Celia we are home and weary but what a great time we had - we would like to thank you so much for your expertise and professionalism in booking a great package for new years in the big apple - the value was great - your information and discounts were super - we would recommend this to anyone - please inform your manager of the great work you did for us and aided us in answering many questions- again thank you and all the best in 2010!!!!

"Hi Beth, This is just to thank you for your assistance with our recent vacation plan. We had a truly wonderful friends’ weekend in New York City!!! What a delightful experience of this time of year there, from beginning to end. The Radio City Spectacular was just great! May you have a Blessed Christmas and a Happy 2010. May God specially bless you!"

"We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Chris Lucas as our guide. Chris's knowledge about the city and its history really gave us a different perspective during our visit. What an incredible evening.
Happy Holidays!"

"Beth, My mother and I wanted to thank you so much, our trip was fantastic! The seats for the Rockettes and Chicago were amazing, you did a wonderful job. We hope that you had a happy thanksgiving, you made ours spectacular!!" MM, Stuart FL
"Thanks for your lovely work on Thanksgiving.  We had the time of our lives!"

"Beth, just a short note to say thank you.......I had a blast......I love the city !!!!!  The bus tour guide was awesome, so was Tony. It was just great. The only bad part was that the hotel did not have roll away beds and there was no air in the rooms only heat....34th floor gets way to hot, even in the cold weather. Their lobby, restaurant and bar were all under construction so we were disappointed with that.....inconvenient, but minor. I just wish the hotel would have let us know ahead of time. Oh well. Back to the good............IT WAS GREAT.....I HAD A BLAST, ate to much, spent to much money....but had a blast and I LOVE THE CITY.  Thank you again, we (or at least me and some others friends) will be back again.

"Thank you very much for all your help with our families first trip to NYC. It was wonderful."

"Good Morning, Just got back late last night. I wanted to let you know everything went very well. The hotel was fabulous. I would like to do that again next year. The breakfast also was very nice. I did not have ONE complaint about anything so that was nice.  Just wanted to let you know. Please keep me posted on any group deals that come around!"

"Dear Beth, i would like to thank was an amazing experience...the guide was awesome...!
Greetings from munich.
Thank you...."

"Dear Beth: Thank you for getting back to me.
Our trip to NYC was FABULOUS--no complaints. The food at the Marriott Marquis breakfast/brunch surpassed my expectations as did Thanksgiving dinner at Rosie O'Grady's. I am not much of a buffet style person--but the food was good. And, my children, ages 20, 18 and 16 enjoyed all the food--their only comment was that my stuffing is much better.
We got great photos of the parade from the Marriott.
Also thoroughly enjoyed "West Side Story".  My oldest daughter is majoring in dance and thought the choreography was outstanding.
The weather was great too--which helped make it more enjoyable walking around the city for shopping and sightseeing. After being somewhat persuaded and dragged to "Top of the Rock" my younger two teenagers liked it after all.
The tour of city lights was okay--except we were not impressed with the tour guide who seemed quite disorganized and a bit disoriented for being a Native New Yorker, but the windows were fantastic and unique--so it was ok and we walked back from Macy's.
After booking the trip I read some rather negative reviews about the Sheraton New York. We found it clean and the staff friendly and most helpful. Yes, the rooms were small, but I have never stayed in a large hotel room in New York--even when traveling to the city for business. Last time, my daughter and I stayed at the Novotel and I might prefer to stay there again next time.
NYCVP makes it easy to plan a trip to the "Big Apple."
I will send the coupon. Thanks again."

"Hello I just wanted to write to you regarding my recent tour I had with you on 11/21/09. Our tour guide name was Marc Landman he was excellent he know so much information and was very awesome to listen to...This man has a lot of knowledge and knew a lot of facts even ones that my son who is disabled was asking that really was off topic but he answered everything. We felt safe with him, and it was all together a great tour. Thanks a lot Marc for a wonderful time."

"I always have my clients write me a review of the trips I plan for them. I thought you would be interested in reading the review Mrs. Lightner wrote regarding the Thanksgiving parade package I booked through you. It is always helpful for an agency to use a supplier that makes us look good! Thank you.
It was a wonderful five days and four nights and worth every penny!  The Sheraton New York is a fabulous location and the private parade viewing was wonderful  We got breakfast AND lunch!  Decided we wanted to get out on the street to hear the music of the bands (our viewing room was soundproof), however, after about thirty minutes in the fray, we quickly came back up to the private viewing area in the hotel. 
The holiday Christmas lights tour was terrific (the tour guide was a loud and obnoxious New Yorker who got better when we asked him to turn down his volume!).  
We shopped, the kids ice skated, went to the NYC public library recommended by my daughter, saw the balloons inflated (rainy and cold that night), loved the parade, the tours and used coupons for the Top of the Rock.  Went to the wax museum, shopped our brains out at Macy's, and had a wonderful time. 
Thank you for putting this trip together.  Our limos were always on time, the drivers were polite....everything was just plain WONDERFUL!!!!! Never hesitate to recommend this packager to anyone!"

"We just returned from a long Thanksgiving weekend in NYC. During our visit, we took the evening light tour with Chris Lucas as our guide. It was one of the best tours we took. He is so knowledgeable, personable, and approachable.
The information we learned for the most part was new - making us feel like insiders, not tourists. Thanks for a great time."

"Beth…just wanted to let you know we had a great time in New York.
One interesting thing was that we didn’t realize the parade route had changed from Broadway to 7th Ave, right past the front entrance to the Sheraton NY hotel. As such, we didn’t need to use the Appleby’s deal – we just grabbed a location only steps away from our hotel. I made a short walk to the 53rd St. Deli for breakfast to go and went across the street from the deli for Starbuck’s coffee ...
Our Ground Zero tour guide gave us a card with his name (Marc Landman) and an email address (copied here) to provide feedback on him.  Marc was great – personable, informative, and more than willing to answer questions. We would recommend him in, well, a New York minute.
Thanks again for all of your help with this trip ..."

"Just to let you know... EVERYTHING was perfect !!
The check in at the hotel was a breeze, and they were even able to take them in early. Their room was on the 27th floor, with a fantastic view of time square. The room was' just like the website' according to my parents. The tour bus took them to watch the balloon's get inflated and also accommodated the several older guest that had difficulty walking. They watched the parade from the viewing room,, said that the brunch was incredible. Although they initially said that no one could sit at the window,, the staff brought over chairs for some of the gusts to sit,, my mom was one of them and was very thankful. They arrived early to the viewing room, expecting it to be overly crowded, but it never became more than 3 persons deep at the window. They left on Friday, after stopping at Macy's to see Santa Claus and the winter wonderland set.
My parents drove up from New Orleans and arrived in Fleetwood, PA to stay with my husbands parents, who later drove them to the Beiber bus ( commuter bus), which took them into NY, (Port Authority, bus station).
We will definitely be recommending this trip to others. This was a present for my mothers 70th birthday and everything was fantastic. Thank you,"

"Jim, Just wanted to let you know my wife and I had a great time in N.Y. and the Sheraton was wonderful....the only thing is we wish we had separate vouchers because the top of the rock and the museum of nat'l history were on the same one so we didn't even get to use one of the vouchers. we just paid the extra money to go to the museum...besides that we will tell our friends and family about you all!!!!! Thanks Again...."

Joel, we are at JFK heading back to Jacksonville after a wonderful vacation in NYC. You and NYCTRIP did a great job and we are thankful for your great service. Have a great 2010. "
JL, Jacksonville FL

I just wanted to drop you a note and let you know that we had a great
time in NYC!! The package that you put together was great and I am sure
we will be traveling to NYC again sometime! I am going to pass along
your name and e-mail address to my cousin who is planning a honeymoon
trip to NYC!! Have a great day and thanks for a great trip!"

"NYCVP, Recently I took my son for his first visit to NYC and a visit to the Statue of Liberty was a part of our agenda. My wife could not make the trip this time, so I was very happy to send her a text message stating that Darryl was our guide again. Her response: "Wow! The same guy?! Great! He was a lot of fun!"
Having Darryl as our guide was an unexpected bonus. We are from FL and thoroughly enjoy his dry, New York wit. Also, my wife and I are working professionals and we recognize and appreciate service which excels. Darryl epitomizes this and we do not take this for granted. Specifically (and this applies to both of the tours we've experienced), he:
- was punctual
- gave clear instructions
- repeated the instructions a couple of times for people who were inattentive or just confused
- ensured that all of his group made it to the subway, onto the train, off of the train and through the line
- gave us some interesting background info during the train ride

Then there came what my wife and I call "the handoff". That's the line where one person's responsibility ends and another's begins. Darryl clearly let his group know when they were about to be on their own and what their various options were.
One last thing.  During our first tour there was an event which caught our attention. The line was fairly long that day and a small group of people had apparently weaseled their way to the front of the line rather than joining at the rear. We did not see this but we did see Darryl locate one of the authorities (NYPD perhaps ... don't remember ...), bring them to the weasel group and directly point out "THAT one, that one, that one and that one". These people were sent to the back to, presumably, try again. I told my wife "Well, how's THAT for in-your-face?!". She replied, "He's a New Yorker; they're very direct."
Tell Darryl we both say "Hello".  He'll remember us, we were both wearing "I <heart> New York shirts" !

"Hi Beth!
I just wanted to let you know that we had a BLAST in NYC! The vouchers were easy to use and we had an awesome time... although we definitely needed more than 3 nights to accomplish everything we thought we'd get to do! lol
I was just wondering if there was anywhere on the website to leave comments about the hotel or the dinner cruise or anything like that for other people to see?"

"Erin, the trip to NYC was great. Thanks for all your help!"

"My husband, John, and I returned yesterday from our trip to New York City.  We learned much and had a truly enjoyable and enlightening experience thanks, in no small way, to your tour guide, Marc Landman. On Saturday, Marc was our guide for the Wall Street/Ground Zero tour. He is extremely knowledgeable with an encyclopedic attention to detail, cares very deeply about his City and does an outstanding job in all ways. Please convey to him again our thanks and appreciation."
MS, Annapolis MD

"Good Morning Celia, I just wanted to drop you a note and let you know despite your wrong weather report (it rained everyday except the day we left) our trip to NYC was perfect! The hotel was awesome, close to everything, the Lion King was great, the Liberty trip was awe inspiring, and the Top of the Rock was excellent.  We were a little disappointed that we couldn't see anything at Ground Zero, as they had everything blocked off.  Sept 11th was the reason our son decided to join the Coast Guard, and since he had just graduated from boot camp on the 11th, he REALLY wanted to go and pay his respects which he still was able to do. But you were so helpful, and we were able to fit so much into one weekend. So thanks for a job well done!  Sincerely,"
KM, Rustburg VA
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank your company for a fabulous NYC trip I recently had. I especially want to touch on our personal guide, Chris Lucas. I have been on a couple of tours and Chris was by far the best tour guide I have ever had. His knowledge of the city and his ability to express this knowledge was phenomenal. He gave us the history of the city and I found myself hanging on to his every word. He was funny and willing to answer questions. When we did our walking tour he explained the subway process to us and made sure we were on the same page as far was what we expected to happen and then what actually did happen. I never felt afraid and felt that I left with a love for the city. I have to admit, it was because of him. I didn't get that overwhelming feeling of confusion one might get. I had the impression that our vacation experience was his top priority. Because of this, I felt at home in NYC and I just cannot wait to come back. Thank you and please thank Chris for me for a job well done."

"Celia - I wanted to thank you for your help in planning our trip to New York City. We returned on Tuesday 09/08/09 and we have a WONDERFUL time!
Everything was perfect and very smooth. I will definitely use NYCVP again if I have the opportunity."

You may already know this story but I want to express my recent experience with It was my first time to book my entire trip with your service so I really didn’t know what to expect. I was very busy and very late in making selections on times etc. but you worked with me and we got it done. You fed-exed my travel documents to my home the day before departure. However in my haste I left without the documents. When I got to New York I called nycvp and told the supervisor what had happened. This was Friday afternoon about 3pm. Your people said not to worry. They faxed the travel vouchers to the restaurants, theaters and Yankee Stadium and took care of every detail so that all I had to do was show up and I was taken care of like a VIP. I have never had such great service in my life. The theater tickets were excellent seats, the fixed price menus were the best food I have ever had anywhere. Everything I did was the best ever thanks to I am telling all my friends what a great service you offer and what a great city New York is. You should expect a lot more visitors from the Jackson Mississippi area. Thank you for everything. I am already booking my holiday NYC trip."
RK, Madison MS

"I have used your service before and am ready to book another trip to NY. I would like to go in June 2010, stay near the theater district and be able to walk anywhere I want to go. You did a wonderful job for me last time and i am looking forward to working with you again. Thank You so much."

"Hi Bethany, I just wanted to say that we loved our New York City trip thanks to you and nycvp. My daughter and I were running the entire time we were there. . . so much to do and see. We loved everything from the broadway show "Wicked" to the garment district tour. We also managed to go to the Metropolitan and to get to "Ground Zero" among other sites. The hotel was in a great location and we walked as far as we could including Times Square, 5th ave. Madison ave. and the fringes of Central Park. We caught the subway and even managed a small trip to Soho. Even though I initially booked the garment district tour with another company I'm glad that it didn't work out. The tour guide from Gotham tours was quite knowledgeable providing tours to a good mix of design locations for all ages. She was even so gracious as to help us find the location of a new shop in Soho that was a "must see" for my daughter. Please keep using them if you can. 
Believe me I'm telling others about the wonderful experience that we had and I'm considering planning another trip with my sisters and mom later. Thank you again. Sincerely,"
SD, Baltimore, MD

"Hi Ceila, Just wanted to thank you again for working your magic about 2 weeks ago when you were able to add three spots to the Statue of Liberty/Ground Zero tour. My brother-in-law and sister-in-law just left this morning to return home to Brazil. They had their "I Love NY" photo album with them. The tour was awesome. Tony was an outstanding tour guide. Can't imagine what the experience would have been without him.
Your efforts made our trip a memorable one. You really went above and beyond and we just wanted to say how much we appreciated it. Thanks again,"
CM, Amesbury, MA

"Bethany, THANK YOU!!! We returned yesterday from our NYC trip and I can't tell you enough how impressed I am with your agency. Our trip was awesome! The seats obtained for the shows were PERFECT! I was so pleased with the Liberty tour, the hotel, and the shuttle service. I will be adding my accolades to the website if there is a place for me to, but I wanted to email you personally and say, Thanks!!!!
PS. I've already started spreading the word!!! I just can't say enough about how simple it was to take this trip because of what NYCVP arranged.....and the discounts on the show tickets were great! A friend of ours who lived in NY previously looked over everything and told us we got a GREAT deal on the entire package!!"

"My husband and I just returned from a weekend in NYC. We were very impressed and pleased with your service and our accommodations. We would like to plan a trip in early fall to see the Jersey Boys."

"We had a great time on our second trip with your company. I love New York. The Yankee game on July 3rd & the tour with Chris Lucas was even better than last year...This year the Yankees won. The new ballpark is awesome. Thanks again for a great trip & I am sure we will do it again!"
TS & KS, Powhatan, VA

"Beth: Just got back from our weekend in NYC and everything was great and went smoothly. I was very impressed with the NYCTRIP arrangements and all the help you provided. Next trip to NYC will be through you again and my wife wants to return soon. There was just so much to see and not enough time or
energy. We didn't even use all the freebies provided. Have absolutely
no complaints NYCTRIP, everything BETTER than expected.
Our two reasons for NYC were Phantom and carriage ride in C.P.: Had second row seats at "Phantom of the Opera" and it was sensational. Even though seen twice at Wang Theatre in Boston, this was simply great. My wife and I both said we enjoyed it as much as the first time. Simply Fantastic evening. Dinner at Langan's and Phantom.
Carriage ride in Central Park was great. Wished longer time but driver pointed out lots of things and let us feed the horse and was very pleasant. Once finished we took a stroll in park. Wife wants to got back and spend a day there.
"Top of the Rock" was great with a bright sunny day and clear views in every direction. So good we did not go to Empire State building, maybe next trip.
Dinner at Cafe Nicole was very good plus had a terrific view of Times Square from about the fifth floor. Langan's was very good, Planet Hollywood lunch was nice. Breakfast at Lindy's was very nice, and we went back another morning. Never made it to Applebee's.
The NYCVP tour guide for Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island was hilarious and kept everyone laughing. Darryl was his name I think. But he didn't make clear when he was turning us loose and I think he missed out on tips. Did a great job explaining everything and getting us on subway and to the Statue. The standing in line for security was way too long. Actually found my family name on one of the displays at Ellis Island.
As for parking, there was a CENTRAL PARKING garage at 1335 Avenue of the
Americas. Right next to the Hilton New York and the Sheraton. Not sure these were on the list provided but that made it easy. A pleasant surprise cause I thought 57th street was going to be closest parking.
Room at Hilton was small and this was surprising since the desk clerk said he was upgrading the room to Hilton Honors. But the bed was very comfortable. We slept great. I was not impressed with Hilton at all, next time we'll try Sheraton next door. Besides Sheraton faces 7th ave and right next to Lindy's. I guess hinting about anniversary meant nothing.....LOL.
Hard to believe it's over since we had been looking forward to this for quite a while.
Thank you so much for your assistance, NYCTRIP will be highly recommend
to all who hear about our trip."
"Beth, Just back from NYC and wanted to thank you and your company for taking us to an amazing experience! The Intercontinental Barclay was top notch, Tavern on the Green was charming, the food at Langan's was most enjoyable and Broadway definitely didn't disappoint...Thanks for the itinerary. I'll definitely be using NYCTrip again!"
"What a great time we just had in New York! Our Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island tour guide was fantastic!!!!! Her name was Georgene (spelling?). She is full of sooooo much information and facts and tidbits. The extra down Wall street was great and something we had not planned. Her advice on where good local restaurants was exactly correct and all the little inside tips she gave worked out so well for us!!!! She is a wonderful guide and lots of fun! I will request her for the next time!
The NYCVP vacation pkg worked great for us!"

"I can’t thank you enough, I give 100% of mine and my mother’s success of our trip to you."

"Hi Beth - This note is long overdue. On behalf of my friends and I, I
would like to thank you for all your help on our trip. Everything pre-arranged was so simple and easy, worked like clockwork and it removed a lot of the stress of our trip. We had fabulous weather and covered a lot of ground in our 5 days. We had so much fun and are hoping to come back again!
Loved the Edison and the location. Would stay there again for sure. Four ladies and all our stuff managed very well in the room.They gave us two queen beds and wasn't sure if you intercepted on our behalf or they were just considerate and upgraded us from Queen/hideabed to the 2 queen beds.The Lion King was wonderful and now in hindsight I understand the importance of pre-ordering seats. Would loved to have seen Wicked, Billy Elliot or Carnage of God. As it was, we picked up some 1/2 price tickets for two other plays and enjoyed them and the cheesecake afterwards.
Really liked the Harlem tour and I would spend more time in Harlem next
trip. The guide was truly excellent and bilingual as well. Not a requirement for us, but we hear French so much here that it was a nice and unexpected touch.
The trip was truly fabulous and that is what it was supposed to be. Not sure when the next trip will be, but we will look you up! Regards from your Canadian friends"

"I would definitely recommend people to use NYCVP.  Do you do any other city packages my daughters want to start doing this on a yearly basis?
Again thank you very much for making our trip memorable"

"I don't know how you did it, but we had 1st and 2nd row seats for the shows.  What a blast! We were right next to the conductors and they both interacted with us. Ted was ecstatic. It took us hours to calm down after they were finished. Billy Elliott is a must.
We did Guggenheim, Met, Amer Natural History, Empire State, Statue of Liberty, FAO Schwartz, Stage Deli, etc. The line at MoMA was too long. Just no time even though it was across the street from the hotel.
...Hotel was first class. We easily walked to the shows and much else.
Thanks for putting together such a great trip!"

"I was on the 8am tour with Tony Saturday May 9th. I had never been to New York before and was a little scared being there alone who knows what can happen. Anyways, Tony was an amazing tour guide. It was the best time I've ever had. I will definitely be using your services again for future visits. I was very confident on riding the subway alone after the tour. It was just exactly what I thought it would be. Thank you."
Chris gave us such an amazing tour of lower Manhattan yesterday. I'm a New Yorker and he taught me many things I didn't know. We had so much fun with the other family that we spent the whole day with them. This was a really great experience and I would defiantly use this service again.
Thanks so much for a great day."

"Beth, I want to thank your company for the wonderful time my friends and I had using your service. The Warwick Hotel was sooo accommodating. Lion King tickets awesome.We got to see the whites of the actors eyes. It rained on Wed. evening when we had dinner at Tavern on the Green but the dinner was so good. I could have fed all of the children in Darfur on the piece of prime rib that I was served. I am recommending this company to all of my friends. We will have to return to New York again because the lines at the Empire State Building on Fri. were so long that it took you an hour to get in the building. Needless to say that part did not work out for us. Beth thank you again for helping us to set up a great three day vacation. Sincerely,"
NW, Fayetteville, Ga.

"Wow… Is all I can say… That was the best trip I have ever had in NY! Everything was just perfect!"

"I wanted you to know that our NYC vacation was PERFECT!!! The hotel was amazing, the location awesome, the shows spectacular, and the Statue of Liberty everything I had imagined.
Thank you for taking care of these details and giving my husband and I a vacation with memories to last a lifetime.
Inga & John

"Beth - I wanted to thank you for booking our GREAT trip over the 2008 Holiday! It was a surprise for my husband and my boys. They are still talking about New York City and what a great surprise it all was. You really made everything very simple. I also wanted to add that our guides were Fabulous! Tony was our favorite. He was so knowledgeable and fun! We are going back this summer and we will be contacting you."

"Thanks Beth. We really appreciate all you have done for us. We did not expect so many changes when we booked the trip. I will recommend you to anyone one I know looking to take a trip to NYC.
Thanks again."

"Hi Beth, We made it back from NYC and had a wonderful time. Thank you for all the reservations and tickets, etc. We loved Wicked! The seats were great!  The tours we took were fabulous. We even were able to watch the ball drop New Year's Eve!
Shop Macy's for a half day, and eat at Carnegie Deli! We feel we had the total New York experience thanks to you. We definitely want to go back to NYC and see more theatre and experience more of the city. The Belvedere Hotel was a great place to stay. Very accommodating and a good location. The king bed and roll away bed were very comfortable. Thanks again for making our trip so memorable and fun!"

"Actually found you searching on the internet, and checked out your site that way. I will recommend you to other people, sure saved us time. Thanks again."

"Were back from our great vacation and have already decided were going
back! ... So we will call you when were ready for return trip at the end of this
year or beginning of 2010."

"Thank you and have a happy New Year. My children and I had a wonderful time in N.Y. City. Thank you again and I would book through you again."

"Thank you so much for helping us put this trip together. It was a dream come true. Everything was wonderful! It is a memory that we will never forget! Thank you again."

"Hi Joby! Had a fantastic trip with my wife and girls last week. All tickets and vouchers worked without a hitch.  Broadway Joe's was an especially nice place for and service. I will certainly recommend you and NYC vac. to anyone I know planning a trip to NY.  Thanks yet again for your help in planning our trip!"

"Celia, I have to tell you just how much we all enjoyed our holiday in New York City. IT WAS TOTALLY MAGICAL!! I really don't have the words to tell you just how much fun we actually had. The guide, Georgina, for the Ground Zero and Statue of Liberty was so informative for all the little things we didn't know or have forgotten about. We all give her a 10. We did South Pacific which was very good and we also picked up tickets to Wicked. The show was so amazing it left us speechless! The weather was great. I do have to tell you we were out late one night, the huge snowflakes were in the air so we decided that was what Christmas in the city was all about.
We did have issues getting home, but that was totally the fault of the airlines. They need to polish their communication skills with their customers. We ended up getting a limo ride to Green Bay from Milwaukee. 
All and all we had a terrific time and we owe that all to YOU! THANK YOU for everything that you did! We hope to return to NYC again and you will be the first one that we call.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Best Wishes,"
Debbie, Donna, Mary, Jennifer and Sandy
"We just returned from New York City late yesterday. Everything was great. You did a great job of scheduling and the reservations for dinner, lunch and the theater were excellent. We had a wonderful time and it was a great way to celebrate our 40th Wedding Anniversary. We hope to return in a few years and will certainly book with you. Thanks for your help."
"Bethany, I would like to thank you for the wonderful vacation to New York you helped me with this last summer. I had such a good time that I am planning another trip for New Years 2010. I would like to start making payments for the trip so could you tell me what I need to do to arrange this...Thanks so much"
"Thank you!!!!! You are awesome!!!! We are sooooo looking forward to this trip. And you have just made our day! I look forward to receiving future info on the trip. Sincerely,"

"Beth, We just returned from our trip to NYC and had a wonderful time, although it was extremely cold. We hope to return again when the weather is warmer to do the things we didn't have time for this time. The hotel was great, the decorations in the city beautiful. On your website's on-line description of the VIP invitation to the CBS Early Show, it says a tape of the show is sent to our home after our return from New York. I wanted to find out what we need to do to get that. We were there on Monday, Dec. 8th. Thanks again for all your help."

"Beth, We returned from our nyc trip on monday and I just had to write and tell you what a great time we had. when we arrived a little early for check in our room was not ready which was fine so we went to explore the city. when we returned a few hours later, the room we requested was unavailable so they upgraded us to a king size room with two cots and the young lady thanked me for being so patient and added free breakfast buffet for both mornings we were there. the food was great, the room was great and the staff could not have been more helpful. the only down side was we did not use all our free tickets, do they expire with the trip? thanks again and please know the next time I go to NYC you will be the first company I call."
"Hi Beth, Just to let you know that we are back from the most memorable break ever. I would like to thank you for all your hard work everything went to plan, we have spent thousands, walked for miles and enjoyed every minute. Would recommend your service to all my friends. Thank you."

"Barry, just wanted to let you know Georgienne was absolutely wonderful. She's personality plus, extremely knowledgeable of the city, and made our tour memorable. Everyone enjoyed the sights, and we all wanted to let you know you made our day a success!!! We'll be in touch for our next trip on 5 December 2009!"

"Celia, We had a wonderful time on our trip. It has taken a week for me to get over it, but it was so much fun. Everything was so convenient to our hotel and the seats at the play and Radio City were great. The Thanksgiving dinner was nice and we enjoyed the Top of the Rock. They were able to fill the seat for the play so hopefully I will get that credit. The Christmas Spectacular seat was empty. We saw Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes on the street and my neice got her picture made with them and after the play we headed to Serendipity and ran into Will Ferrell. My daughter is a celebrity watcher so she had toooo much fun! I will surely recommend you to anybody I know that will planning a similar trip. Thank you."
"Thanks for all of your help and planning. We had a wonderful trip--a trip of a life time. The theater tickets were perfect and everything was so smooth. The Macy's Parade breakfast was perfect. I appreciate all of your help along the way. Thanks"
"I recently went on the city lights tour led by Chris Lucas. I have nothing but good things to say about this tour. The locations were perfect and Chris gave awesome details and wore hilarious hats!!! I especially enjoyed the stop at Tavern on the Green! Honestly, I would absolutely encourage my friends to take this tour..and Chris deserves a real shout out for doing a great job! Thanks,"
MP, Vancouver, BC, Canada

"This is just a quick email to let you know that when we came to New York from British Columbia for our holiday this was one thing we booked online as a must see/must do event. The sad thing is the tree was not lit but Chris was an excellent tour guide including several other stops to make up for the lack of tree this year.
He was a very good tour guide making it a wonderful Christmas experience that I will highly recommend to those I know coming for the holidays.
I had a very positive experience, I found Chris very charismatic and funny making it feel like he was a friend showing you around his city, using little stories and history of the city to make you feel welcomed.
A very special thank you to Chris and his company for making this a very Merry holiday trip!"
SM, Vancouver BC

"Beth, We are back from our wonderful 'dream' trip to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Everyone had a wonderful time and we would like to thank you for all of your communication and planning to make our trip a great experience. We will definitely recommend NYCVP to others. We have only positive comments regarding the accommodations and bookings. Please pass this on to your supervisor and again, thank you for your part in our memories."

"We used your company to attend NYC at Thanksgiving and had a great time a few years ago. Your company did a great job so here we are again needing to come to NYC... I would really like to stay in a condo but cost is a huge factor, we need space close as possible as we will be packing lots of dance clothes and I don't want to walk several blocks to hotel. Can you give me some ideas?"
"Hi Beth, Just would like to take the chance for the organization ... We had a very good time and most of all the whole package was great value. Thank you very much we felt very special and I will definitely repeat next year so when you have good deals let me know! Regards"

"Pam, just a note to let you know how our tip to NYC went. It was FABULOUS!!!!!  All the reservations were perfect and we had a marvelous time. We will be coming back! Thank you again for all your wonderful work."

"Hi Joby, Thank you so much for the information. You have been very helpful, and you deserve to be complimented on a GREAT JOB. You can show this to your Supervisor to let them know what a great agent you are. Thanks"

"Recently I and two friends used your company for a tour of Ground Zero. Our tour guide was Marc Landman. I cannot tell you how impressed that we were with his information regarding this site. He was by far one of the best guides that we have ever used and we have traveled extensively. I feel that someone that does their job so well deserves to be recognized--thus the reason for this letter.
Shortly after our visit in New York we boarded a Princess Cruise Ship and during this time we were very comfortable referring your company, and especially Marc, for this particular tour."

"Just a quick note to say thanks to your guide Tony for an excellent tour of Ground Zero and the Statue of Liberty we had on Saturday last. It was very informative and we learned things about Ground Zero and the attack on the area we would never had known. He certainly knew his stuff. He may remember me as the marathon runner. If he does, please tell him I completed in 4hrs 5mins. Thanks again for a great day. Regards"

"Hi Joby, I'm back from NY. That hotel was a perfect location. We could not believe we were right in Times Square. Everything went perfect so thanks again for everything. I will pass on your name to anyone I know going in future."

"To Joby, You have recently helped my boyfriend CW plan our trip to New York City for Sept. 26. It was his first time in the big city and he loved it!! We got the package
which allowed us free admission to one out of three museums (which we
were in for 4 hours!!) and also free admission to the Empire State Building! We had a great time & he said that you helped him out a lot.
Well, for this Valentines Day 09 me and a friend of mine would like to plan a surprise day trip for our boyfriends! We would like to go early in the morning and just explore more of New York & then later in the day go to a Spa! I have never been or know anyone who has been to a Spa in new York City, which is why I'm writing you this e-mail for help!
I would greatly appreciate any type of info that can push my planning  ahead!! Thank You,"

"Dear Michelle
I just got home from my NY vacation and tour with Georgian was totally awesome. This woman knew her facts and was so friendly and personal. Seeing ground zero and the statue of liberty was kind of a let down, but our tour guide made it one of the most informative and moving trips we experienced. I just wanted to let someone know she is doing an excellent job. I am not sure where to send this mail but if you could forward it to the right person I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you."

"Beth, Just wanted to let you know Andrea and I returned home this past Tues. from our trip. We had a fantastic time. I believe I told you I have heard from Andrea for 20 years that she wanted to "see NYC." I think we accomplished that assignment very well. Between the activities we scheduled with you and things I planned on my own, she was a very happy and tired camper when we got back to Phoenix. 
The Palace Hotel was fantastic and would highly recommend it to anyone
staying in Manhattan. Same goes for seeing South Pacific. We enjoyed the show so much we also saw Jersey Boys while we were there, which was also great. Andrea also did a good job of stimulating the economy of SOHO, China Town and Little Italy.
The tour of Ground Zero, Statute of Liberty and Ellis Island was very surreal for me, and maybe my favorite part. We ended up taking over 6 hours doing that.  The Empire State building and Rockefeller Center were also amazing. I had seen most of this stuff when I was 11 years (over 39 years ago), but all much more impressive as an adult.
Andrea and I also enjoyed the carriage ride around Central Park and lunch at Tavern on the Green. I must tell you the Tavern on the Green was the most disappointing part of our trip. Although the atmosphere was very nice, the food was so-so at best, and the staff worked very hard to portray the rude and obnoxious attitude New Yorkers are famous all over the world for. Actually, that was the only time in our 5 days there we experienced that attitude.
I just wanted to let you know we had a great time, (although it is not for me personally) and thank you. Yours truly,"

"Beth, I want to say how pleased we were with EVERY aspect of our trip that was planned via NYCVP.  The hotel was perfectly situated in the surroundings and was very nice, the free lunch at Planet Hollywood was great and the free dinner at the VIEW was amazing! 
The Walking Tour of Ground Zero could not have been better. My husband is a firefighter and was very interested in this tour and our guide Marc Landman did an outstanding job! He gave so much information and insight through the whole tour. We had a very small group --which was very nice and were able to have that personal attention on the tour. We saw Mamma Mia and had incredible seats and enjoyed the show so much!  Also the 2 day ticket for the sightseeing buses gave us a chance to see all of the sites we wanted. 
We will be looking forward to planning our next trip with you."

Just wanted to let you know that the vacation you guys planned for my daughter Elizabeth and I for last weekend to New York was wonderful.
The tours and the meals were wonderful.
We enjoyed the walking tour of the ground zero area. The tour guide was very personable and attentive.
The bus tour was also great. We felt like we were able to see everything.
Tavern on the Green, Sardis, Planet Hollywood and Langans all had wonderful food and service... Thanks for a great trip."

Thanks again.... I appreciate the quick turnaround! You made the whole trip planning so easy for me."

"Hi Tara,
We are finally home, unpacked and the laundry done.
The NYC tour was great. We did not get to Ellis Island only because of age and hunger. Tony was great and we really enjoyed the tour. I will recommend it to others who are traveling to NYC. Thanks for you help.

"Beth, I received the package for our trip. Everything looks great. Thanks for your patience and help."

"We had a fabulous time, in large part due to your meticulous planning on our behalf.  Thank you so much.  Everything went off so smoothly -- no lines waiting for tickets (we had them!), no questions about what time to meet or where -- you had supplied it all.  It was a wonderful week. We love NYC and we loved the professional assistance you provided.  Just wanted you to know how much your assistance was appreciated and what a great birthday gift it gave me."

"We wanted to let you know our package to New York and U.S. Open was terrific - once again, had a great time."

"We were part of the Baylor group who went to the Yankees game with Chris Lucas as our guide on Wednesday, September 18.   He was absolutely the best tour guide I have ever had.  He was so knowledgeable and knew so many things about NYC AND the Yankees that just an ordinary person wouldn’t know and he made the whole thing so much fun.   His trivia contests were especially fun – and my son absolutely loves the Phil Rizzuto signed picture.   We are baseball fans so it was extra special to us, but I’m sure that even the non-baseball fan would have enjoyed his insights.    He certainly went the extra mile to make sure everyone was taken care of.  Wish we could have had him with us all weekend!! I would say you have a real gem there!! Thanks for a wonderful time!"

"My wife and I had the pleasure of taking last Saturdays final "day game" tour and Yankees game with Chris Lucas.
The game was great, but all the extras with Chris made the trip especially memorable.  The information he shared about New York, Yankee history and personal info was fantastic.  We would definitely tour with him again.  We would also like to include our driver Cisco in our thanks.  His driving was excellent and his comments were an added attraction to our trip.
Which brings me to another point...we will be in New York again Oct 3rd - 6th and would like to know what tours Chris may have scheduled for these days.   We would be particularly interested in visiting the Statue of Liberty, touring historic mansions or other items of historic interest.
Thank you very much for a most enjoyable tour and any further information that you may provide."

"I would like to take this opportunity, on behalf of myself and my parents, to thank NYCVP. This is the second time I have used your company to visit the big apple. Both times were so completely memorable, NY will be in my heart forever, and all thanks to your wonderful staff. In fact, our trip from Sept 10-14 was so fantastic, we forgot to leave!!
I would like to give a special thanks to Michelle Syms, who put our package together, along with Jim Hawk. Michelle was my go-to person for any questions and concerns. She was absolutely fantastic and made me feel so at ease anytime I called. As I mentioned we had such a great time last week, we completely forgot to check out of our hotel and catch the evening flight back home. In a panic I left messages for Michelle, forgetting that it was the weekend and that she would not get the message till the following day. Everything turned out fine and we were able to leave the next day. But it was knowing that I could call her and she would be there to help...and she was. She retuned our call and was so concerned and willing to assist. She's wonderful.
I would like to give another special thanks to Chris Lucas, our Yankee tour guide. Cannot tell you how impressed we were with his knowledge of NYC and the Yankees! You could not have hired a better person for this job! Thank you Chris! Our trip was designed around taking my father to his first Yankee game. Chris made it that more special with his insight, presentation and presence!
Thank you again to your entire NYCVP team. You guys are simply magnificent!!!!!!
The Gast Family, San Diego, CA
"Bethany, Thank you so much for all your help! I cannot wait. Y'all have put together an amazing package for us"

"I just want you to know that this is our first Macy's Day Parade in person. Your website was so easy to use; and the hotel packages were such a great choice, plus the many options one could add. It was a wonderful "online" experience of planning our trip to NYC!! You all have done a great job! Thank you."

"I wanted to provide feedback regarding our recent trip to NY that was partially booked through NYCVP.
First of all our booking agent Joby Tuminelli was very helpful and provided us all the information and options we needed/wanted.  The process was easy and assuring.
We purchased a Yankee package from NYCVP.  The bus ride hosted by Chris Lucas was invaluable.  He provided us much more than a bus ride to the Yankee game.  He provided us some insider tips we would not have known otherwise (i.e.: Celebrity homes, movie locations, schools etc...) and also gave us a tour of buildings etc... that we would not have seen.  His story telling abilities were very enjoyable.  The transportation to and from the game was very smooth.  We were traveling with children and I was concerned that it would be complicated but the tour went smooth for everyone.
I will definitely recommend NYCVP to others and check you out again on our next trip to New York!
Please feel free to add us to your newsletter as long as you do not provide our email address to anyone else.
Thanks for helping us make lasting memories."
The Fritz Family

"Hi Beth,
I tell everyone about my NYC trips, and about your company and great service.  One of my sisters has already said she wants to go back.  My daughter wants to visit again also. It may be a couple of years, but I'll definitely use your service again. Thanks for everything,"

"GREETINGS: Extraordinary, extremely knowledge, friendly, well mannered. The above describes Mr. Chris Lucas. I've been on many tours and even been a tour leader / guide and Mr. Lucas has every quality anyone would desire in a guide / leader.
Very prompt in meeting the group, arranging transportation, informing the group of exact travel plans, each stop, each site, etc.. Mr. Lucas really made each individual feel that he had their interest at large. Taking extra time to insure each person understood the significance of the sites.
I would not hesitate in booking another tour, especially with Mr. Lucas, as
my leader. Unbelievable in knowledge about New York, each site. My only
regret is I did not know that your services included visiting and seeing Yankee
Stadium. Respectfully,"
PJ, Oklahoma

"I recently attended the Yankees/Blue Jays event with my 8 yr. old son and I wanted to pass along some accolades to NYCVP for providing the perfect experience for us both to share in the magical moment of being able to watch our favorite team (Jays) at famous and historical Yankee stadium. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, it was made that much more special by Chris Lucas. He was an amazing tour guide, he took us on a wondrous ride through the city on our way to Yankee stadium along the way he provided a fantastic overview of the city's history and it's local residents. He made it so interesting and entertaining that my 8 yr. old seemed to be focused on his every word of every story he had to share with us. Chris was also very accommodating and helpful at every moment during the whole time he was with us, super individual!
We stayed at the Sheraton Towers on 52nd and we were quite pleased with the accommodations and the level of service the quality was great, very clean. Overall we had a fabulous time in NYC and we have NYCVP to thank for it all. I would consider purchasing a similar package in the future.
P.S. Only one disappointing issue, had to pay $5.32 to get our NYC package at the hotel business center, not sure why the cost of the courier was not absorbed.
Thank you NYCVP and a very special thanks to Chris Lucas, you made it worth every penny!!!"
"Hello, My dad and I were part of the tours to the Yankee games on August 29 and 30. Both guides were very good, but Chris Lucas on the Saturday afternoon game was especially excellent. We enjoyed his extensive knowledge of the city as we drove through it, and of the Yankees history. We felt that as part of the tour we were getting some extras that we would have missed out on had we simply found tickets and transportation on our own.
Big thanks also to Joby who helped us get organized and didn't mind answering my 1000 questions leading up to the trip.
The only downside was that the tour bus didn't collect us from our hotel, the Double Tree in Jersey City, so we had to make sure to be at the Sheraton at the appointed time. For some reason I thought it did. I understand now why the bus leaves only from the Sheraton, it is in the middle of the action in midtown, and is a manageable distance to drive to the stadium.  Either I misread this part of the package, or it is something to make a point of mentioning more clearly in the documentation.  
Other than this minor thing, the entire package was great, it was the first time either of us had been to NYC and will surely be a weekend we look back on fondly. Thanks for a great time!"
"Erin, Thanks for helping us have a great trip."

"Hello Beth, We got back last week and needed to catch up on our sleep. My wife and I and my 2 boys had a great time in NY. The Hotel was in the perfect location, the seats at Phantom were perfect, the total package was great. Thank You,"
The Vermilye Family

"I just want to thank you and AAA Midatlantic, for making my trip to New York City great, from the airport to the shuttle to the Hotel Edison, it was very nice, it was clean and the staff were all very friendly and helpful, the theater tickets to Grease and Young Frankenstein, which was great, the trip to CBS Morning show was nice, had a nice time there, The tour to the Statue of Liberty and my first subway ride, thanks to our tour guide Chris Lucas, he was very good and I enjoyed his tour, again thanks to Chris. The trip to the top of the Rock was great. I am only sorry that I did not have more time to spend there, the only disappointment was that for four days there I could not get the tour of NBC, they said that it had been booked until the following week, but other than that, it was a great time. Again thanks, and I will be sure to use you company again."

"Hiya Celia
Well once again We have to thank you for a wonderful trip. Everything was perfect, we decide we would take the boat tour and it was so worth it. We got great pics and lots of video. You were so right about "Wicked" the show was awesome now I have to get another frame to put the playbill up next to the "Jersey Boys" we will be seeing them again in Toronto in Sept. Once again Thank you for your help.You may hear from us next year."

"Beth, Thank you for making all of our arrangements, the trip was wonderful.  The hotel was great and The Little Mermaid magical. However, our return home was not so pleasant. Our return flight was canceled due to weather and we incurred some significant charges for airfare and lodging trying to get home. I am filing a claim with the travel insurance company for additional expenses incurred and need some assistance from you. I am required to submit a detailed itinerary for our original trip with all associated pricing for airfare, insurance and lodging identified separately. I believe an email response is sufficient.  Please let me know if there is a problem. Thanks again for all of your help.  We had a terrific time right up until 4pm on Sunday."

"Thank you for all your help. We received the tickets first thing this morning. I am pleased with your service and I am pleased with how friendly and helpful you were. Thanks again and I am sure that you have helped to make our vacation wonderful."

"Mrs. Scarantino,
I would first like to give praises to Travel Agent Beth Tenenbaum. She was tremendous in helping me plan and achieve a dream of mine since 1974. That dream came true on Friday June 20, 2008. I attended a baseball game in Yankee Stadium where my boyhood hero had played before his tragic death. That hero was Thurman Munson, catcher, just like I was at 9 years old. Mrs. Tenebaum was patient, honest, helpful, and hard working keeping up with the changes I would make and the emails I would send. I cannot thank her enough for my first trip to New York City and to that ballgame. Her suggestions of transportation to and from the airport were outstanding, the choice of hotel was a perfect place and her no pressure attitude to let me tell her what I was wanting and then she made it so it would happen. For a small town, and I mean small town (Goggle Madison Florida some day we are really small) boy like me to go to his boyhood hero's ballpark and see his number retired and plaque in Monument Park was almost too much for this country boy. I probably cried 6 maybe 7 times in the ballpark.
Next I must sing the praises of Chris Lucas. How lucky can a guy be to have the most knowledgeable person about the Yankees tell me all about them on my way to the Stadium. He was great. He was beyond friendly, his was a fan that wanted to give his knowledge to me so I could understand. He was amazing. I do have something maybe the tour could consider for the future. Because of his vast knowledge and willingness to share that knowledge maybe the group could leave earlier from the hotel and allow him more time to talk about the Yankees and the different sights on the way before getting to the park and maybe get to the park when the Yankees are beginning batting practice. Please don't get me wrong it was GREAT when we got there. It just seems Chris has so much knowledge and insight you should be given more of an opportunity to share that. And the people would be able to see the entire Yankees team take batting practice and warm up and run around and not just the last remaining 4-5 players. Just something to think about. I must tell you though Chris was patient and waited some extra time at the hotel for people who were supposed to be on the bus but never showed up. He was great. Chris, the tour, the Stadium, it all was amazing and the GREATEST trip I've ever taken.
I will go back to New York and I will use your company again. I hope that I will be able to use Beth as my representative. I can't tell you how much I appreciate her work and effort and the work and effort of Chris. They are great assets that made my first trip to New York a most memorable and meaningful one. Thank them both. Thank you for having great wonderful people.

"I would like to express my gratitude for one of the best vacation packages I have had.  On July 31-Aug 3 my 3 sisters and niece celebrated my mother's 70th birthday by taking the NYC trip package that included a room at the Sheraton new york tower, dinners at Langan's and Tavern on the Green, tickets to Mama Mia, and a tour of the observation deck. The agent assisting me was Celia, and I just want her to know we had such a great time and us 6 gals even made it on the Today show. Thanks so much to Celia who helped me over the telephone to plan our trip- everything she arranged was perfect.  We all fell in love with New York City and will definitely plan our next trip through you because of Celia's efforts. Thanks again,"

"Thank you Beth! Love your service…"

"Thank you so much. I have told several people about your service and how helpful it was. Hopefully they will book their trips with you."

"Hi Joby:  I just wanted to let you know my son and I had an AWESOME time in The Big Apple! It was a great trip you planned and the accommodations were great. I'll be sending my comments by mail too. Thanks again!"

"A special thanks for Marc Landman for doing a great job on the Yankee stadium tour on 7/30/08. An additional thank you to the company for making our first trip to nyc a real pleasure. We have already forwarded your name to our friends. We look forward to another trip in the future."
LH, Coral Springs, FL

"My wife, son and I recently completed our first trip to New York (July 21-24). We booked our package from NYCVP. The trip was wonderful experience. Our stay at the Sheraton could not of been better... We attended a performance of "Wicked" and the seats were fantastic along with the performance. The highlight of the trip was a Yankees game for my son and me. Our tour guide, Chris Lucas, was extremely informative. His love for the the Yankees made the experience that much better for us. He provided us with an excellent trip to Yankee stadium, providing information about what we were passing by on the way, but also Yankee information that the normal tour group would probably never know. The special access to the stadium was great.
The whole trip was so wonderful that my wife and I wondered why we had not done it sooner.  We will be returning again in the next few years. NYCVP package was the absolutely perfect way to arrange the trip. It was very simple to do online. There were no surprise or extra fees and the bonus items were very beneficial...
When we take our next trip to New York, we will definitely book it through NYCVP. Again, it was a fantastic trip. we will highly recommended to friends and family."
CAJ. Milo, IA

"We loved it. The Edison Hotel was very nice. We will stay there again next time. Mary Poppins was fantastic. Young Frankenstein was great, the seats were fantastic. Also got photos and autographs after each show. Can't wait for our next New York trip. Thanks for a great time,"

"I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your assistance. You did a wonderful job and our trip was GREAT! I want to also let you know how good a job Mr. Chris Lucas did with the trip to Yankee Stadium. He was very informative and cordial."

"Thank you for helping to make this time with my Mom so fun and special.

"Hi Beth, I wanted to thank you and your staff for a wonderful vacation package to New York City!! The tours were perfectly organized and great. The location of our hotel was awesome... Our tour guide for the Ground Zero and Statue of Liberty was so wonderful and gave a lot of insight that we would have never received on our own. We will definitely refer our friends to your company and will use you again on our next trip to NYC!! Thanks again."

"hi, marc landman was a walking tour guide for me and my mother in mid june,
and i wanted to say how appreciative we were of the tour, and how much fun we had had. i will make sure to do the walking tour once again when i am back in new york. thank you."

"We took the Lower Manhattan Walking Tour on Thursday, July 17th.  Our guide was Martin. We had a wonderful experience - he was so informative and made the tour a delight. We found out things from Martin about the area that we would not have known on our own. We just wanted to say thank you to you for having such a knowledgeable guide. Martin was great. Thanks,"

"Alisa, Thanks so much for your help. We will definitely tell anyone who is traveling to New York City to book with your company. Excellent service!!"

"Joby, Good morning. I'm back to work now after my 2 week vacation. NYC was a
blast, had an absolutely great time...We are already talking about coming back next year. You were an awesome help, I really appreciate everything you did for us!

"Hi Joby, Just wanted to send a quick Thank you,  My daughters and I just returned and it was an amazing time.  The hotel was not what I expected but the service was amazing. The show tickets were great.  We were sitting so close in Phantom that we could smell his cologne as he passed by. I am planning a return trip June 2009 and will start planning early. When I am ready I will be sure to let you know. I have also recommended your company for 2 other people."

"My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour with Jonathon. He was an excellent guide and made the whole thing fun. Thanks for such a great time in NYC."

"To Whom it may Concern, I just wanted to let you know that my family of 4 had a great vacation on our first trip to NYC as well as our Yankee game. It was not our first time to a Yankee game, but the first at their home! Our tour guide to the game last week was Chris Lucas and it was such a wonderful experience. He has such knowledge of the game, it’s players and the city itself.
My family will be visiting again next year and will certainly use your site to book more tours, this time to include museums. We will certainly look them up on your site and ask if Chris is available.
Please let him know how thrilled we were with him, it was a great experience, completely! Oh, and they won in an extra inning, so that made it even better!
Thanks again!"

"Dear Beth, I have just returned home from a lovely Fourth of July weekend in New York.  I would like to thank you for arranging everything and making this vacation possible. Everything worked out without any complications or problems, just like clockwork. I enjoyed the very plentiful barbecue and the magnificent fireworks, as well as the waterfalls when we passed by on our way to the spot where we would watch the fireworks.
Last night we went to the Yankee game, my first time at Yankee Stadium, so I was very excited about this portion of the trip.
I am sure you have received many compliments for our tour guide, Chris Lucas. I was very impressed with his knowledge of all things Yankees , and with his connection to the Yankees since he was a child!!
To make the evening even better, the Yankees won the game.
Just today I visited your website and noticed there is one more Yankee game offered.  It is on Saturday, September 20th.
I would like to ask you if you still have openings for it.  If so, I certainly would like to go.
If you could arrange it, I could arrive in NY on Friday evening (Sept.19), and stay a a hotel for two nights, Friday and Saturday the 20th.  Checkout would be on Sunday, Sept, 21.
Please let me know if this is possible...
The second thing I wanted to ask is about the Thanksgiving Day Parade package. There was a family from Pennsylvania on the tour that did this once and they recommended it to me. They mentioned that they had a Brunch at the Marriott Marquis hotel where they were able to see the Parade on their way to Macy's. For this particular tour, I could arrive in NY on Wednesday, November 26 , stay overnight , but I probably would have to return to NJ on Thursday evening.  Right now, I do not know if I can have Friday off, but I will try to get Friday the 28th off so I can stay longer. I hope you can do just one night at the hotel, just in case I can't stay over on Thursday.
I hope I am not too late in requesting these activities.
I would appreciate whatever you can work on.
Thank you for your help,"

"Hi Erin! We have just returned home from our NYC family vacation. We had a wonderful time. The Yankee game was the highlight. Chris Lucas did an outstanding job as our tour guide. Our 15 year old son enjoyed the experience so much he wanted to stay another day. The package was the way to go! We got to experience some sights I did not have originally planned, but wanted to use the tickets in the package. You were right on with the selections. The Sheraton Hotel was nice and central located...
Thank you for this package. We enjoyed our vacations and will tell our friends about your company.

"Hi Beth, Just a short note to tell you that my wife and I love New York City! Our only problem was that we didn’t have enough time to see all of the great areas of the city. We did take advantage of the subway, and traveled from the Cloisters to Coney Island in one day, stopping along the way. Your trip plans for us were excellent, and I am very impressed with the New York Palace, and the Warwick hotels.
I’m sure we will be back, and will use the NYCVP to set up our future travels.
Best regards,"

"Good Morning,
We have been meaning to write but have been busy with an illness in the family.  I would like to take a minute now, however, and thank you again for making our vacation in New York just fantastic.  We were there the week of April 21 and signed up for two tours through AAA.  First, let me say that New York exceeded everything we expected.  The city is clean and the people very friendly.  We love it and plan on visiting again.
Our first tour was a walking tour of Ground Zero and the Brooklyn Bridge.  As it turned out, our family (all 3 of us) were the only ones signed up for the tour.  We didn’t know what to expect but the tour guide, Hal Glicksman, took lots of time with us, gave us a lot of history and local information and made the tour very special for us.  He also gave us some dining recommendations that turned out very well. We would like to thank him again. What a great guy!
A couple of days later, we took the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island walking tour.  I can’t recall our tour guide’s name now, but she was great.  I do remember that she is a Mets fan.  She took us to Wall Street before we boarded the ferry, so we got an extra treat on that tour also.
This was the only vacation we have ever taken where everything was perfect.  Nothing went wrong and we would not change any part of it.  Your tours helped make it that way.  Thanks again."

"Hi Jim
Thank you soooo much for your help. We are having a great time here in NY. Best wishes"

"Hi Celia
It's been a year since our trip to New York and we would like to come back again ... can you contact us again please or where we can get in touch with you since you did such a great job for us last year. Thanks"

"What a fantastic company! Thank you again Erin for all your help!  I know we will enjoy our NYC trip!!! Have a wonderful weekend!"
"Hi Beth...sorry it's taken me so long for me to write you a huge "THANK
YOU!" My son and I had a wonderful tip to NYC. Everything was wonderful
from the location of the hotel, to all the site seeing adventures, and
not to mention the food. We look forward to using your services again in
the future for other family trips. I am sending you a few pictures of us
in NYC. They were taken at the Blue Man Group show, a ride around the
park, Rockefeller Center, and Time Square.
Again, Thanks!"

"Thank you Joby! You've done an amazing job!"

"We went on a New York Yankee's weekend trip and it was just wonderful. My wife and I would like to thank Pam for putting together our 10 year anniversary trip, she was so very helpful. Every aspect of our trip was just perfect, from the hotel to the tours.Any questions that we had before the trip were answered by Pam very promptly. We would just like to thank NYCVP for the best trip we have ever had!"

"Good Morning Beth,  I hope this note finds you doing well. I did not know where else to write so I turned to you. You were FANTASTIC in the planning of my first trip to New York City. The hotel, the location, the transportation, the game and the city were all WONDERFUL. There is no way possible I could have put something together on my own that would be close to what you did for us. Thank you so much. I would like to write to whomever I need to, to inform them of your efforts and time and also of the gentleman's effort and leadership on the tour of Yankee Stadium and Monument Park. Who do I write to and where do I send the letter. If you could let me know that'd be great.
P.S. I want to go back for the Statue and Ellis tour and some more shopping. Got anything like that?"

"Hi Beth...sorry it's taken me so long for me to write you a huge "THANK YOU!" My son and I had a wonderful tip to NYC. Everything was wonderful from the location of the hotel, to all the site seeing adventures, and

"What a fantastic company! Thank you again Erin for all your help! I know we will enjoy our NYC trip!!! Have a wonderful weekend!"

"Hi Erin, Just wanted you to know what a wonderful trip we had last weekend in NYC. Everything you planned for us and made arrangements was great,  the shows were perfect, we had the front row seats to Grease and that was so much fun and The Lion King, is what it is, always phenomenal...Anyway, we had an absolutely great, wonderful reunion with my sisters, daughters and niece. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!!"

"Hi Celia, We are back from our trip and we had a great time.  We saw everything we wanted and more. When we were there we added to our trip a Broadway show (Xanadu) and the Bodies Expedition. Everyone at the Warwick Hotel was very nice and accommodating... Thank you for helping make our trip wonderful,"

"Hello Celia,  We have just returned from our New York Trip and I must admit we had a marvelous time!!! The time was too short and we cannot wait to return! The Little Mermaid is FANTASTIC!! The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island were so beautiful!!  Planet Hollywood was to die for. The serving sizes are HUGE! We had an excellent time…Thank you again for all your help and advice. It was right on the money!!"

"I just wanted to send you a note to thank you for the great vacation in New York.  Linda Conway and I were very impressed with our NYC vacation package and will certainly use your company when we return.
Our other question is:  Do you do any other cities?  Your services were so outstanding we are hoping that you have other places to visit!"

"Thanks so much. You are appreciated. It is always nice when an agent can give you ideas and suggest different options instead of just piling on add ons."

"Hey Beth, Thanks so much for all your help. My friends from here were absolutely correct. In that you provide great service and contact. She said it was the best experience with a vacation package she'd every had. Thanks…She is right your company has been great. Sincerely,"

"Dear Joby,
We just returned from NYC. We had a GREAT time. You were right, everything went very smoothly. The Fedex package was waiting for us. The Essex was beautiful and the staff extremely nice (I preferred to the Waldorf). We will be in touch for the next trip!!!! Thanks Again,"

"I just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our tour of Ground Zero & Statue of Liberty, with our guide Georgenia Millen.  She was everything we had hoped for and more.  She was knowledgeable, patient, and funny all wrapped into one.  Thanks again"

"The NYC pass was great the Greyline All Loops tour was worth the money and 48 hours to use it. The photo walking tour was great, Mark was a hoot, informative and great pictures, best investment I made on my trip! The show Hairspray was great and funny, very entertaining. The slice of Brooklyn tour was exceptional, the wife and I loved the pizza and Tony (tour guide) was outstanding! The lower Manhattan walking tour was very moving also. We covered Central Park, the St. Patrick's parade, the subway, Tribeca, SoHo, Little Italy, Chinatown, the shopping, and museums all several times. It was a great first visit and thanks for all you help! Everything went great!"

"The Broadway shows were fantastic!! Terrific seats were definitely a plus for 2 petite gals. We even sighted a couple stars on the street. The Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island tour was great. Our tour guide was very good with a great sense of humor. As part of the tour we were given a metro card to use to travel from Cosi's Restaurant to Battery Park and back. That was definitely a perk for me since my first subway ride would be with our guide to 'show us the ropes'."

"Beth-I just wanted to tell you we had a great time in New York and everything went extremely well. The seats at the play were great and the food at the View and Sardi's was wonderful. Even though it was a limited menu, it was a good selection and very good. Our rooms were very small and old at the Sheraton but I have come to expect that it New York.  The staff was friendly and the location was perfect... I do appreciate your help on this trip and would recommend NYCVP to anyone who should ask. Thanks again."

"Dearest NYCVP, We just completed our second trip to New York this past week and our second time to use your services. We are very pleased with your services from the hotels, Broadway tickets, and tours. We used your service for the tour to Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island both trips to NY. ..The tour guide we had the last trip was excellent. Her name was Georginne and she gave us so much of her time and knowledge of the facts of NY. She was the very best I have ever seen. She was so personable and so funny. She was one of the highlights of New York and you know how much New York has to offer. She represents your company at it's best.  She went above and beyond to satisfy all of us. Of all our memories of our New York trip, Georginne will always be one of the best. Please let her know how well she is doing and how much we appreciate her. Sincerely,"
"Hi Bethany!
Thanks for the follow-up from your website. We did end up booking a trip with your company yesterday. It is for the August 29th Yankee Hall of Fame Suites. It looks like it will be a great time! We liked the fact that your company took care of everything for us. It will be great to go on a worry-free trip!"

"Hi Celia,
Our tour guide for Ground Zero & Statue of Liberty was Tony. Tony was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and nice....We also loved the Loop Bus, and one of the evenings we took the night tour and that was excellent....We did it all, we crammed so much in, when we were there, but we loved every minute of it, the front desk at the hotel thought we were funny because we would ask for a wake-up call every morning at 5:30am. We didn’t want to miss anything."
"Thanks, Celia...each time I call with a question, everyone in your office is helpful, but you are the best! You go out of your way to make a novice traveler like me feel more comfortable and I have learned something from talking with you that I did not see on the various websites."

"We had a fabulous time in NYC over Thanksgiving. The package was perfect! I have recommended the site and company to several friends.
If they haven't used it then their loss! I was wondering if you had any packages around 4th of July?? Regards"

"...I just wanted to let you know what an absolutely hysterical guide we had.  I am sure many of the people didn't get his sarcasm but we all thought he was great!!! ... he was wonderful and very informative. Thanks again and I would certainly recommend this tour to any one else that I know going to NYC."

"Hi Celia,
Two years ago you helped me and my husband plan a wonderful train trip from Albany NY to NYC for three nights.  We were thrilled with the unbelievable convenience of our very nice theater district hotel accommodations; close to great restaurants and the stage where we saw Wicked. Wicked was just fantastic - of course that is a typical review.
Since we were so pleased with how and what you were able to plan for us we'd like your help again.  We'd like to see another unbelievable play, what would you recommend this time? Sincerely,"
PM and RM

"Thanks for your great work. What a great company! - Thanks for making
this so easy."

"Hi Bethany, Wish we would have found you before we booked our flight and hotel. I found you when I was looking for additional things to do. This will be our second visit to New York. I wanted to see exactly what you were offering and it was a great deal if in fact all that would have been included for the $2600.  We have found that sites give the great price and then end up refiguring everything at an increased price when we actually book the deal.  It was interesting to see and I will keep your site on file for our next visit. Have a great day!"

"Hi Beth!!
I gave the itinerary to Dawn on her birthday and she cried.  She is so excited.  She has wanted to see NYC for a long time...Thank you for helping to make my daughters 40th birthday a special one. "

I can't thank you enough for all of your help and patience regarding our itinerary.  It is such an important trip for my friend that I want everything to be just perfect. I only wish the agents at Northwest Airlines were as easy to work with!"

"Beth: My friend and I returned from our New York trip.  Even though it rained and our return flight was cancelled.... we had a wonderful time. NYCVP did a wonderful job with our trip plans. Park Central Hotel exceeded our expectations. The tickets to Phantom were great as well. I have recommended NYCVP to a friend of mine (AK) for an upcoming trip she is planning. Thanks for your efforts in making our trip so great."

"Hi, I’ve used you 2 or 3 times in the last 5 years and have wonderful trips.  I plan to come again on 3/24-3/26. Thanks,"

"Joby, Thank you for your prompt response.  I will submit the discount coupon shortly.  Once again, it has been a pleasure to deal with your company.  We look forward to our upcoming trip to NYC!"

"Good Morning Beth!
Just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time!!  We had a great time on the Ellis Island/Statue of Liberty tour - the guide was great!  They kids really enjoyed seeing all the sights and sounds of NYC - they really liked the subway!!  We weren't able to do the walking tour of downtown on Thursday because I twisted my ankle (while trying to take a picture =) and thought I better not walk on it that much.  Martin the tour guide was very kind and called though to see if we were going to make it.  The Helmsley was also a great experience and in a great location for our daily outings.
I just wanted to thank you again for all your help and I would definitely use your services again, as well as, recommend them. Sincerely,"
The Gronlund Family

"Greetings! Just wanted to inform you that the package I purchased for last weekend in NY for myself and my clients was absolutely wonderful!! Thank you so much."

"Thank you so much for all your help. Our family's mini-vacation was great. I have to applaud you for your efficiency and the way you handled our last minute vacation.  I will recommend your company any time."

"I forgot the nice lady that worked with me for this trip (Cecila?), but I want to book again for next Dec… I loved my trip & 3 of my friends are going to book with your site...we love building our own trip! Thank you,"

"Thank you very much, you've been a tremendous help in all this. I look
forward to our trip very much"

"Hi Tara,
George was fantastic and the students enjoyed the tour enormously.  Thank you and your organisation for the tour.  We learned a huge amount and also enjoyed the experience. When we return we will use you again! Once again thank you, New York was fab!"
SF, United Kingdom

"Dear Bethany,
Just wanted to thank you for the work you did on our NY package. Everything was so well planned and fit together beautifully. The Sheraton New York was in a super location and had a very helpful staff, especially one doorman named Gary, who was very kind to our 14-year-old granddaughter.
The seats for Legally Blonde were perfect, and we were able to see all the performers come out the stage door afterwards.
The tours were fine, and the lunch was overwhelming. It was a perfect final day activity.
Thanks again. We will be sending in the coupon with assessment also, but wanted you to have a personal thank you as well."

"My name is RP, my wife and I just got home from our first trip to New York City. I went through my local travel agent, Central Travel in Findlay Ohio. They set my trip up though you. I can tell you that has been the best trip I've ever been on. Everything was set up great. The Hotel (Novotel) couldn't have been in a better location. Right in Time Square. Transportation from Airport to Hotel and back was also on time. (Blue Van) Both drivers were very nice. The Lion King ticket that you got us were awesome. FRONT ROW. The Greyline tour was great. The host on each bus knew their stuff. Where to go and where to eat. It was great hearing all the history about NY and all the buildings. Also in NY I got to see couple places, I've always wanted to see, Lady Liberty. and also where King Kong was hanging from (Empire State Building) What a view from up there. While there we also seen a taping of Dave Letterman.
The only hang up while we were there was the water was shut off, in the hotel on Wed. Jan 16 for repair and we wanted to clean up a little more before we went to see The Lion King. I just wanted to say thanks again. When we come back to NY city I will be booking with you again."
RP, Findlay Ohio

"Thanks so very, very much for all your help....working with you is a breeze....I definitely look forward to our collaboration on this fun trip! Take care..."

Good morning to everyone at NYCVP! My family wanted me to let everyone there who worked on our recent package... know that we thoroughly enjoyed all of our Christmas trip to NYC. All agents who worked with me in planning the trip were most helpful. Everything was up to our expectations or better. We encountered no problems at all. I would definitely use NYCVP for another trip, and I will recommend your services to all my friends. Thanks again for helping with our 'Christmas trip of a lifetime!'"

"Hi Joby! Just a quick note to let you know how pleased we were with our travels!! Thanks again for putting this together for me and I look forward to my next trip!!"

“We had a great time and you did a remarkable job. Thanks for all your hard work.”
"Dear Celia, We had a great trip, thanks for your help.  The Hotel was beautiful and we did get half price tickets to two shows. Thank you and Happy Holidays!"
"Pam...I plan on using your services again as soon as possible.Kind Regards."

"Hi Beth, Just wanted to let you know that the NYC trip was perfect.  My girlfriend and I had a great time.  Thanks for your help in arranging it!"

"Joby, I just wanted to drop you a note and say thank you so much for your help in booking our trip to New York.  My daughter and I had a fantastic time and the Broadway strike ended just in time. The seats to every show were great I think we were in the fourth row for Phantom of the Opera. The hotel was in a perfect location we were two doors down from Hairspray and just a few blocks from everywhere else we were going. I will certainly call you the next time I go to New York and also recommend you to others.  Thank you again."

"Diana and I had a wonderful time in NYC…..all went off w/o a hitch. The Sheraton was in a great location for all we wanted to see and the staff was accommodating & friendly. Radio City show had special effects for the 75th anniversary…glad we had tickets. Thanks for the A-1 planning! Thanks much."
I just wanted to thank you for all your help... NY and Wicked were amazing and my son had a great time. Again Thank You."
"Hi Celia,
Thanks so much for putting the package together for us. We had a blast!"

"Just wanted to let you know that our trip to NYC for my husband's 65th birthday was wonderful.  I did go through my travel agent but also had lots of contact with you and I know she booked through your company also.  Everything turned out just as we had planned. The Novotel is great.  We had a beautiful view of Times Square from our room on the 31st floor and would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.  Great location. Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my many many questions as I was planning this trip. We loved NY and hope to get back there soon...We loved everything about NY.  I was quite surprised.  I thought I'd be a little scared out on the streets but never felt afraid at all and I thought it was very clean. The New Yorkers that we met were so helpful and friendly which is not the reputation that they have here in Texas.  Everyone should visit New York at least once...We both loved lots of things about NY but we especially enjoyed the area around Central Park. My husband really enjoyed the talent of the young people that sing at Ellen's Stardust Diner.  He is a teacher and loves young people. In fact, it was so amazing. We met one of his students from here, the Dallas area, on the streets in NY. He was also visiting there with his parents.  We were shocked. Just that morning my husband had said to me, 'wouldn't it be something if we ran into someone we know?' and I was like 'Yea, right.' And sure enough we did.  We saw them again at Serendippity. So fun."
"don't worry, I'll never go again w/o making plans through you.........must confess that the  garish, gawdy, over the top Tavern on the Green w/Christmas decorations was my favorite surprise.......who would have thought there would be anything so outrageous......just perfect for me at Christmas time.............and as I said earlier, please recommend JUMP to any/all w/family....what a pleasant surprise that was too....yep, I can hardly wait to go back w/o children.....I want to shop and eat and drink my way to poverty, again!!

"Hi Beth,
We had a great time and it was a wonderful trip. Thanks again for all your help..."
"Dear Bethany, Hello, thank you for responding so quickly...My mom and I booked with you guys last year. Our vacation was a blast. We will continue using you guys. Thank you again. Sincerely."

"Our trip was every way. The Waldorf is truly an experience in itself.....lovely suite (2 bedrm, foyer, big living rm.....AND 2 baths......:) :) Two baths were a must.....and so appreciate your fighting for that for us. Waldorf service was superb.....every detail. Beautiful hotel..... Limo service excellent....met us at airpt....and at Waldorf....right on time.....Play was probably the highlight of our trip......(or a close second to the shopping. :) ) Seats were perfect. Many thanks for all that you did to make this dream come true for us.

"Hi Beth:
Just wanted to let you know what an absolutely wonderful time we had in New York City. Even my husband had to admit that it was really fun. I would have liked to stay about 4 more days to see ALL the museums and shop at Macy's and walk 5th Avenue top to bottom but my husband was ready to come home. Too many people for him. Everything went so smoothly thanks to all your help. We couldn't have done it without you. We loved the Warwick Hotel. I will recommend your services to anyone I know who wants to go to New York. It is such a "user friendly" city that getting around was a snap. We even tried the subway!!!!!!! Many, many thanks, Beth."
DH, Big Timber MT

"I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our tour of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.  Our tour guide, Daryl (spelling may be incorrect) was entertaining as well as very informative.  My sister and I had a great time! Thanks,"

"Your web site was easy and fun...I know 'nothing' about NY and your site made things easy! Again, thank you."
"Hi Beth,
Just wanted to say THANKS again for your help with our trip… it was great and we had a wonderful time! Thanks again."

"This is Christina S. I was at your website 10-11-07 and I love that you can build your own vacation I am so excited. I wasn't sure what the price was going to be so I chose March just to get a approximated price, but realistically I wont be able to go until July or August but again I am extremely excited and will definitely go through this company. Thank you."

"We had a blast in NYC!!!! Spamalot was one the best musical’s (Mama Mia maybe up there with it) I have seen. Our faces were hurting when we left and the seats were excellent. The double Decker bus ride is an absolute to see the city from a different perspective, while getting tid-bits of history. I have been to NYC many times and never done glad we did! It also saves you cab rides, as you can get on and off at any time! We wandered the streets without plans on Wed and Thurs falling into Hell’s Kitchen and having great food at really reasonable prices. The fog lifted just in time for our dinner cruise on Saturday night ...We had big fun and met some really interesting folks, from locals to a barrister from Scotland. We ducked into a local brew pub during a Yankee’s baseball game one night and got a real taste of what baseball means to a NYC local…more fun...I am so glad we did this trip. It pulled Bob right out of his "I am 60 Funk!" We can’t wait to go back!! Oh..and a buddy up-graded us to first class as a gift to Bob…that was very cool! Thanks again for your help! We did have a wonderful time!!!!!"
LJ, Niceville FL

"Hi Joby,
We had an excellent time in NYC this past week.  Thank you for all the care you put into making it happen.  The guided tour to the Status of Liberty was excellent, by the way. Our guide was extremely helpful, informative, and friendly.  Well worth the extra cost.... Thanks again for everything."

"Good evening Beth,
Thank you for getting the vacation package sent out to me so quickly.  I was pleasantly surprised yesterday afternoon.  I'm looking over everything. Thank you again, we are all so excited!"

"Thank you very much. That takes a load of my shoulders! I didn't know it
would be this simple. Thanks again."

Thanks so much."

"Hi Beth,  
 Just wanted thank you for  setting up a great trip.  The tickets for the three musicals were excellent.    The tour guides  for the Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island (Georgina)  and   Lower Manhatten (Tony) tours were excellent.  Wouldn't change a thing."   
 DA & EA 

"Hi! This is Barbara and I never got around to telling you what a fabulous time my son and I had in New York July 20-25, and how everything you arranged for us was great! The tour guide on the bus to Yankee Stadium (Chris Lucas) was great; the stadium of course was memorable; the seats at both theater events were spectacular and the Waldorf Astoria was elegant but not too stuffy. So I have passed your website onto friends and family and hope to use you again someday…. Thanks again."

"Hi Beth, Just a note to say thanks. Everything went as planned. I never thought planning a trip could be so easy. Just click and get ready to go. I'm in love with NYCVP and will use it every chance I get. By the way, we loved New York City. Can't wait to go back. Many thanks again."
KR, Mandeville LA
"We enjoyed our trip to New York City. We enjoyed the tour bus to the Early Show on Thursday, September 27.  We were interviewed on live TV by weatherman Dave Price, which made it extra special...Thanks."

"I was fortunate enough to have taken a guided tour back on 9/8 with your company in new york. georganne was our guide and we were exceptionally pleased with her attention to detail, knowledge, zest and sense of humor. she really helped to make our first trip to your fantastic city memorable. i have always felt that the quality of ones employees speaks volumes to the character of a company. you obviously are a high quality company based on georganne. i will definitely recommend your company to friends and family.  thanks for a fantastic experience!"
"NYCVP, Just wanted to drop a note and tell you all that my family has just returned from a vacation that you all helped us plan. We would not and could not have enjoyed our time in New York any better. Your staff was great to work with and helped us fit everything into our short visit. Without your help we would only have seen a fraction of the city, would never have gotten a hotel so close to times square (the center of the world), and last but not get us tickets to two of the most popular broadway shows was just above and beyond. I could go on and on...but please just accept a heart felt thanks from our family."
Reeves/MacDonald Family Jacksonville AR

"Bethany Tenenbaum and Chris Lucas, We want to thank both of you for making our trip to New York a very special time for us. The moment I made contact with the NYVCP web site I knew we were in good hands. Bethany, your reassurance of the hotel accommodations while noting and fulfilling our request of a King Bed and non-smoking room was spectacular. Your dedication to detail was greatly appreciated. Chris, first of all we would like to extend our condolences to you and your family for the loss of your God Father, Phil Rizzuto. He was a Great Man and a Great Yankee!!  We were lucky enough to be under your charge the day A-Rod hit his 500th home run. From the time we embarked on our tour traveling through the streets of New York to Yankee Stadium while you high lighted the points of interest along the way and returning to the Hotel was mesmerizing.  We could not have asked for a better tour guide. The way you incorporated the city through your own experiences was superb.  We can't thank you enough. Looking forward to seeing you again on our future trip to New York."
"Jim, Just wanted to let you know, we had a wonderful mini-vacation and were all very pleased with your services. Glad we got the theater tickets as the show was sold out. The hotel was great and within walking distance of great restaurants and pubs. Will definitely use services on our next trip! Thanks."
"Joby...I am sending this email to tell you what a wonderful time I had in NY. The seats at the women's final were SUPERB!!!!  Thank you!!!  Transportation was excellent!...The Tavern was exquisite (of course). Thank you again for the excellent service you provided me."
"Hi Beth,
I just wanted to let you know how much my wife and I appreciate everything you and your staff at NYCVP did to make our visit to NYC the most wonderful experience that it could be!! All of your recommendations couldn't have been better!! The Empire State Bldg. tour included free in your package was breathtaking!! We visited at night and had short lines and great views of the sparkling city!! The Warwick Hotel was fantastic with a huge, elegant, quiet room; generous and helpful staff as well as the perfect location!! Everyone there was so friendly and made us feel right at home. The theater seats for "The Lion King" were dead center and perfect!! What an amazing show!! My wife loved it!! The menu choices for the pre-paid dinner at Broadway Joe's Steakhouse were better than we ever expected, as well as Tavern on the Green's lunch menu!! The meals were amazing and the desserts at Broadway Joe's were some of the best we've ever had!! We appreciate you changing our dinner reservations at Broadway Joe's to accommodate our change of plans as well. I also appreciate you getting back with me so quickly with my lost departure flight information on our last day, you and your staff went over and beyond what we expected from an online travel service!! There was nothing that you could have done to make our trip any more enjoyable, (I guess you could have made it a little warmer, it never really got above 40 degrees while we were there!!! hahahah). We have already recommended you to some of our friends and will be sure to tell more!! Thanks again!!"
Chris & Tiffany O. Homewood AL

"Have now returned from the Big Apple. Palace Hotel was excellent. Tickets ready on arrival. Room superb and with fantastic view as requested. It was a brilliant experience all round. Just a thank you for your prompt service and attention to detail. The British tourist industry could learn an awful lot about real 'customer service' from your company!"
SM, Oxford UK

"Thanks so much for arranging such a great trip for us!  There just wasn't enough time for us to see and do everything there!  We definitely want to plan another trip.  Our tour guide to Yankee Stadium, Chris Lucas, was wonderful and so-o-o-o knowledgeable of the city and the Yankees.  He is definitely a KEEPER!  Don't let him go! "
James & Patricia H.
"My sister and I just returned from our New York City vacation. What had a really wonderful time. Everything was perfect. It was our first trip to New York and your planned vacation was fabulous. Wicked was wonderful and the 4th row seats were fantastic. We will never forget it. Tavern on the Green was very special. The Marriott, at Times Square, was more than we could have imagined. Everything was perfect from beginning to end. I planned this vacation on line, and communications with your company was fast and efficient. Thank you so much for everything."
MH, Johnstown PA

"We are Ron and Judy, age 70, who spent our 50th ann. in NYC with your help.  We loved every part of it . The NY Palace Hotel was grand!! The seats at the two shows were very good. We were booked through Travel Concepts, Lima, Ohio.  We really enjoyed our trip."
"Dear Bethany & Elaine: I am connecting the two of you for a future WONDERFUL trip to NYC. Bethany---I have told Elaine what an excellent job you have done above and beyond the call of duty for BOTH of our trips (old & upcoming!). One of her wishes is to visit around the Holidays to see all the lights & Christmas festivities...Your company had such wonderful seats for your shows and you provided the most WONDERFUL personal customer service ever. Elaine, please make sure to ask for Bethany whenever you need information or to book your trip---you will NOT regret it! All the best!"
"Hello Bethany,
Thanks to you--we were able to show our friends in Toronto (who were experiencing NYC for almost the very first time) such a special three days in New York and I couldn't have done it without you. We laughed and cried our way through "Wicked" -- and had the most perfect seats in the house.  Shopped, noshed our way through Soho, Chelsea, Greenwich Village and 42nd St. The Belvedere Hotel was perfectly situated for all our needs ... and the concierge was an absolute doll!  You should be so proud of the perfect service that you gave us!!! I will tell all of my friends about your website (or maybe I should keep it as my little secret!) lol. A very sincere thank you from the bottom of all of our hearts. It was truly the most special three days of our lives!!"
DL, Washington DC

"I just wanted to let you know that my husband and I had a wonderful time on our NYCVP that you booked for us. We were in NYC from 8/11 through 8/15. It was so nice to have everything laid out for us and we didn’t run into any snags. We were able to breeze onto the Amtrak train without having to stand in any lines. The ride to NYC was comfortable and fast. We loved the Warwick Hotel. Although we arrived early, the hotel staff made us feel comfortable and they stored our luggage until check in time. We had time to take a leisurely stroll around the hotel and enjoyed lunch in a nearby Irish Pub. We took advantage of the free passes to visit the Museum of Natural History and the Empire State Building. We went downtown to the South Street Seaport and over to Ground Zero to pay our respects. The two shows were terrific, it was so nice that they were within walking distance of our hotel. Thanks again for helping us have such a nice vacation. I will definitely be in touch when we want to plan our next New York City vacation."
"Hi Beth,
... My friend Karen and I would like to tell you what a fantastic time we had in NYC and that you are one great trip organizer!!!! We had a ball - all our tickets were first class and all our restaurants were fabulous. We loved our hotel was SO central to everything we did and it was next door to a fire station which was a BONUS especially for Karen who is a firefighter here. (Lots of photos taken there) We were treated like royalty and felt very special absolutely everywhere we went. We found the packet very organized and easy to use. Everything was done for us and the map was fab. We packed as much in as we could and are now planning another. Karen insists we use you again and I must concur. :) There aren't enough words to tell you how wonderful it was. Thank you again and I look forward to dealing with you and your fab company once more."
CM, NS Canada

I've been meaning to send you a quick email and thank you for your help in planning our vacation to New York City (June 27-29). To say the least, it was wonderful! I really appreciated the second row seating for niece and nephew had an absolutely wonderful time being so close to be able to interact with the cast. The Double Tree Guest Suites is a perfect location in Time Square and the staff was very helpful and friendly! The room was very clean and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoy the Rockefeller Walking Tour with the free tickets that were included in the package. It means a lot to me when I find a service that is trust worthy enough to recommend to others and to use in the future...NYCVP is on my list. Thank you again."

"The first time I visited New York City I made the arrangements myself. The second time I used NYCVP. The third time I'll use NYCVP again. The coupon book was so simple to keep track of and I had no problems at all. I'll be contacting you next summer. Thank you for your assistance!"

"Debbie, I wanted to get back with you and let you know that the trip went without a hitch! The hotel was great, the show spectacular, and the weather perfect. We had one day with light shower and we just continued right through it! I want to thank you for everything you did to make this trip a reality. Your website made it so much easier for us to determine what we wanted to do, but also what we could afford. And then . . . it was still more than we'd hoped. I've told everyone I know about your site, so hopefully you'll be getting some more trip requests coming your way."
ND, Columbia SC>
I just got back from NYC on Saturday, and I wanted to tell you what a FANTASTIC time we had. Every single detail came off like clockwork. The show tickets were outstanding (2nd row for Phantom--wow!), the hotel was perfect, and the tours awesome. The instructions for where to be and when couldn't have been better. I want to be sure to give the company a GLOWING recommendation, as well as the tour guides we had. They were all so informative and interesting, and so knowledgeable! I know you'd probably like for me to go to the website to leave feedback (right?), but I wanted to be sure and thank you personally for the vacation of my lifetime and my mom's too! You can't believe how much we were able to fit in in those 6 days! Besides everything we had planned, we also managed to fit in another show ("Wicked"--awesome!), David Letterman (Robin Williams was there!), and Good Morning America (the nicest bunch of people!). There's still lots we'd love to go back to see and do, but we filled every minute we had on this trip! We decided we wouldn't take a million dollars for the vacation we had, and we'd spend twice as much to do it again. Thanks again for your help! Please let me know if I can do anything else to brag on you guys, OK?!!"

"Dear Beth,
I just wanted to send you a note to thank you for all you did to make my wife and my 25th Anniversary trip to New York so fabulous. Every detail you handled was smooth and easy. We loved the Warwick hotel, the seats to the Producers were the best we've ever had to any show we've ever seen, and as a baseball fan, my trip to Yankee Stadium was like a trip to Mecca. We truly had the time of our lives, and it was probably the first vacation we have taken where we weren't anxious to get back home. We would not hesitate for one second to recommend your service to anyone contemplating a trip to the big apple. Thank you again for everything."
MO, San Leandro CA

"I've been visiting the NYCVP site so much, it is a great relief to know that such a site is out their for people like me who would like to visit NY and have an outlet that is so willing to help out!"

"Stefanie and I are back from our trip to NYC. We had a fabulous time. Thanks so much for your help. We loved the Belvedere Hotel. Everyone there is so nice and it was a great place to stay. The Fun Bus to Early Show was a hoot. The World Yacht Cruise was amazing and, of course, the highlight was our trip to Wicked!! Everything was perfect. I'll recommend your company to our friends. Thanks!"
DP, Manassas VA

"Recently my husband and I visited New York from the 22nd of Dec through the 28th. We were booked by your company and booked in to the Marriott Time Square. Awesome.... New York was just wonderful. Thank you for all of the arrangements, they were perfect. Nice Hotel, Phantom Of the Opera was fabulous, and the people that live in the city of New York were great 'tour hosts.' They gave my husband and I many directions. (guess we had tourist written all over our faces! ha!"
Mark and Janet

"I can't thank you enough for making this a really special Christmas! We had a wonderful time in the city! The Hotel was great-Beautiful!!! Stomp was fantastic and the helicopter ride is something we'll never forget! And the shopping!!! I never thought I'd see the day when my 17yr. old actually 'shopped till she dropped'...all the sales!!! Thanks again for all your help, we would have waited till after the holiday if it wasn't for you finding us this package."
Teresa and Alexandra

"Just wanted to say that I received the package today and am very impressed and would like to compliment you on arranging everything. Thank you very much and I know I will have a great time in New York."

"We had a great time in NYC! It was nice to meet you. Thanks!"

My family enjoyed one of your New York Yankees package vacations in the summer of 2006!  It was an absolutely awesome trip!!  Since this is the last year for Yankee Stadium, we were considering making another trip to NY and was wondering if you are going to offer any Yankees Package for 2008? Thanks"
"We had a great time! The hotel was great. The dinner was wonderful...We enjoyed New York. Thank you for doing such a great job. I will be sure to book again!"
"Hello,   My name is Julie Doolittle and I traveled with NYCVP in 2005 or so and enjoyed the trip greatly. My friend mentioned to me that she would like to go to NYC and I told her about my wonderful experience. I let her know that we should start planning and saving. I realize that planning too far into the future is difficult due to price increases and the like but I would like to know if you could help me set up a wonderful package for 5 or more that is affordable and a genuine NYC experience that I would like to see happen either during the Christmas/New Year’s holiday of 2008 or Fourth of July holiday in 2009. I would like to stay 10 or more days and I would like to see a Broadway show plus include the Harlem Gospel Tour, which I did when I was there. I would also like to be reminded of the amount required to book the trip and the time allotted to pay off the balance due. Once I have a majority of the information, ballpark figures and such, I will then know the true total amount of those desiring (and able) to go and the days we will be seeking to stay. Thank you so much. Cheers!"

"Hey Erin!
I just wanted to send you a quick note to tell you that we had a great time - thank you for arranging it for us.  We ALL loved The Lion King and want to see other shows.   We want to come back but we will have to let our southern bodies rest a little - it was the fastest -paced place we have ever visited!!. SMILE !!  We will give NYCVP a call when we are ready next time! Thanks again and enjoy the springtime. God bless. "

"Thanks for the speedy and personal response. I am impressed."

"Just wanted to drop a note to thank you for all your help in putting together a great vacation package!! This was my first trip to New York City and I can't wait to return. We fell in love with the city and all it has to offer. Thank you for the great accommodations, tours, and advice. We will definitely be in touch with you when we plan our next trip to New York."

I wanted to take a moment to let you know what a wonderful time we had in New York. The Intercontinental Barclay Hotel was wonderful - the room more than adequate and the staff was top-notch. We would definitely recommend this hotel to friends that might be visiting New York and when we return to New York in the future we will stay there again. Thank you for helping to make our visit to New York a truly delightful experience. We appreciate the assistance that you provided. I have taken the liberty of recommending your website to friends and know that they will find it as helpful as we did."

"I was very impressed with your website, the packages offered, and the reasonable prices."

"I was wondering where the seat locations were for the play. I've looked online for Lion King tickets and they are pretty sold out for that day so I was curious that you could sell the whole package for less than what I was going to pay for 2 tickets."

"My family took the above tour on the above date with your guide Daryl [hope the spelling is correct !] and we didn't really have [or take] the opportunity to thank him for his assistance in negotiating the subway in New York and the massive queues at Battery Park. We really enjoyed the trip and would like to pass on our thanks [regrettably not financial] to the guide whose humour had us amused throughout. His laid back approach and friendliness was very much appreciated. Thanks again to Daryl."

"I just wanted you to know what a wonderful time my daughter and I had in New York City. We were a bit nerviest about two women going to New York alone, but we had so much fun and we felt very safe in the city. The hotel (Sofitel) was beautiful and the staff was so helpful. the restaurant (Langans) was very good. We had a great time over at Ellis Island also. We went to NBC studios and did shopping too. I will not hesitate about going back to New York City again."

"We had a wonderful time in Manhattan. Thank you for everything. The Sofitel is a beautiful, classy hotel - even better than we were expecting. On the walking tour of Lower Manhattan we met lots of really wonderful people. I was boasting about your services to a guy named Barry - who turned out to be the owner! So then I started boasting about the great help you had been and Barry then told me he's your Dad! Keep up the good work! I always try to do business with companies that have an involved owner - NYCVP is a winner. We were truly amazed at how clean everything is in Manhattan. We are still talking about it and can't wait to go again. I could go on and on...."

"Thank you again for all your help in arranging the New York City trip for my sisters and me. We had an absolutely fabulous time (even though it rained the entire weekend). In fact, we had such a good time that we have decided to make it an annual event!"

"First I'd like to say I’m very impressed with your website! I have been searching the web for a four-day vacation-trip to NY and yours got the things I'm looking for; the possibility to see almost everything!!" The holiday was perfect. The show seating was wonderful, the restaurants were excellent,and the hotel quite satisfactory."

"I wanted to thank you for helping to make my recent trip to NYC a great time. All the information provided with suggestions on places to go and things to enjoy were great. I enjoyed the Met and the Empire State building. Little Italy was full of characters and great food. Thanks again for all your help."

"I want to thank you for all you did for us to make our visit to NY a memorable one! We had such a great time! Our only regret is that we didn't have enough time in NY. We have already decided that we want to return to NY someday and see some of the things we were able to see on this trip, plus revisit some of our favorites. Thank you again for all that you did for us."

"My wife and I wanted to thank you for helping set up our NYC trip! It was perfect. We loved the NYC trip so much, we are thinking of doing it again in the spring for a long weekend. Thanks again for making everything so easy for us to enjoy!!"

"We're back and ready to go again. We loved the trip and the city."


"We had a wonderful time in NYC. It could not have been any better. The hotel room was conveniently located. Dinner was wonderful. And the play was fabulous. (We even met with the actors after the play)."
"Our hotel was great and in a nice location."

"The double-decker bus was a great way to get oriented in the city and to hear some history of it, would definitely recommend that."

"As midwesterners we'd always heard New Yorkers were rude and the city dirty and often not safe but we did not find that at all. I don't know if 9/11 changed it but if so a nice thing has come out of an awful tragedy. We will be giving your website out to many."

"I wanted to write to you to tell you what an amazing job you guys did for a previous trip I attended. The packages that you offer at such a low price makes going to New York an easy task. Once again, thanks a million for your high level of customer service and quality. I have recommended your company to anyone I know traveling to New York and will continue to do so."
"This site is wonderful."

"We had the opportunity to go on the walking tour with Tony on Sunday, September 1, 2002 in New York. He provided us a wonderful tour and memories that we will have for a long time. He is very knowledgeable and addresses all of the questions and concerns with skill. I hope you can pass this along to him and let him know that the woman that fell in Battery Park is doing well and now feels like she has really "assaulted" Battery Park!"

"The vacation was great beyond our wildest imagination. I'm telling everyone, who'll listen to book travel through NYCVP."

"Wanted to get back to you and thank you for the package you created for me in August 2002. We had a wonderful time. The Wellington worked out great. The Grayline had a drop-off/pick-up right across the street. My daughter, a cellist, liked being near Carnegie Hall and we were able to walk through there. I have recommended your service to several people who are looking to go to New York. There is a possibility of going again during the holiday season and you will be contacted."

"I wanted to thank you for the wonderful package you put together for myself, my daughter and grand daughter. The Novotel was VERY comfortable and within walking distance to almost every place on our list. I have the blisters to prove it. We were placed on the 12th floor with an easy view of Times Square. The doorman couldn't believe all of what we accomplished. We were out from morning till almost midnight every night. My 13 year old grand daughter declared she is going to be a 'city girl!' Sooo here is a big hug all the way from California and another large thank you for smoothing out the trail for us."

"I just wanted to thank you for all of your help getting our trip planned to NYC. We got back Monday night and it was the most FANTASTIC four days. I loved the food and the play and everything. I can't wait to go back and when I do I will definitely use NYCVP to plan my trip."

"Hi Bethany!  I actually worked with you before, a few years ago. There was a group of us (9) including my mother and 4 year old. We had an absolute blast, and loved how easy you made it for us. I now have a smaller group interested in going, and I said it had to be this time of year. Anyways, I was just kind of trying to get some pricing in mind so I could give everyone a heads up... We wanted to do the same as last time, the show and brunch at Tavern On the Green. I would appreciate any suggestions you have. Thanks."

"Just wanted to send you a quick email and tell you that everything in NY was great! Everything that you set up, NBC tour, Etc., went very smoothly. And the hotel was great. Once again, thank-you for everything. Planning a trip to NY is so easy when using your service."

"Your website map, showing the hotels and other landmarks is pretty useful!"

"It was great! The hotel was grand. Robes and slippers and fresh fruit with art everywhere."

"Thank you so much! I really appreciate the good customer service!"
My friend and I returned from our New York trip.  Even though it rained and our return flight was cancelled.... we had a wonderful time.
NYCVP did a wonderful job with our trip plans.  Park Central Hotel exceeded our expectations.   The tickets to Phantom were great
as well. I have recommended NYCVP to a friend of mine (AK) for an upcoming trip she is planning. Thanks for your efforts in making our trip so great."

 Thank you for your prompt response....Once again, it has been a pleasure to deal with your company.  We look forward to our upcoming trip to NYC!"

"thanks for you help!!!! I'll be directing anyone I know who is going to New York to your office. Again, thanks"

"I just wanted to let you know that we had an absolutely AWESOME vacation!!!!  Thank you so much for everything.  We will be using your services again....possibly this fall! Again....absolutely awesome!"

I love your site! You make planing and booking a vacation in NYC a  
complete breeze!"

"We had front row seats when I say front row I mean the first two seats in the theater. We could have reached out and touched any of the actors we wanted to. Boy no one dresses up anymore. Very casual. I will never forget the look on Kathleen Turners face when she came out to make her curtain call. The smile she had will stay in my memories forever. I am better acquainted with NYC and will be able to enjoy my next visit even more."

"First let me start out by saying I love the convenience of your web-site. It had everything I wanted. We are sending my parents to New York City for a few fun-filled days for their 50th wedding anniversary."

"Thank you so much!! I'm actually not planning a trip till next year, I just wanted to see how much packages might cost. I liked your website and the packages are great, so I will definetely come back to you when I get closer to traveling. Thanks for your help."

"Just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed my trip to NYC last month. I used NYCVP, Debbie, and she was helpful, professional, and cheerful. I especially enjoyed the Historic Lower Manhattan tour."

"I can't tell you what a big help you have been for us. My husband and I have needed this for a long time. You won't be forgotten on our trip."

"Just a note to thank you for arranging a wonderful stay for my family while we visited NYC in June. The hotel you suggested was much better than the one I had originally chosen. We stayed at the Sheraton Manhattan at Times Square. Our package of the Empire State Building and the NBC Studios were terrific - also, we were lucky enough to be seen on the Today show as well!! If we ever get back to the city, we will have you help us out again - we really enjoyed the trip and the wonderful package you set up for us."

"Just wanted to let you know the New York vacation package you set up for us was great. The hotel was perfect, and centrally located as you said. We loved the seats for the play."

"I just wanted to shoot you a quick THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!! We had an Awesome trip!! Thanks again so much for your help."

"Wanted to let you and your colleagues know that our trip could not have been more perfect. Thank you for all of your help -- it gave my Mom a very special 75th birthday. My favorite experience? Going to sleep each night listening to the clip-clop of horses hooves of the Central Park carriages. Where do you get to hear THAT in the 21st Century!! Thanks again!!"

"I just wanted to send my many thanks to your company for my trip that I booked with your company. I didn't have any problems, and I really appreciated how helpful your employees were whenever I had a problem or a concern. Thank you so much, my mom and I had a wonderful trip to New York and I couldn't have done it without your help. You will be highly recommended to others."

"Thanks for your wonderful customer service. I am very impressed."

"This spring I booked a vacation package through you to see the Lion King. It was a wonderful vacation."

"Thank you for your responsiveness. We received all of the tickets yesterday. I am sure we will enjoy our trip to New York City. "

"Thank you very much for helping me book my trip to New York City. You were of great help in finding exactly what I needed, at a great price, and booking it last minute."

"Our Lion King group this past weekend was a hit! Thank you for your recommendation with the Belvedere. Everyone was pleased, rooms were nice, good location, and the staff was very accommodating. Looking forward to our next trip."

"We returned from a fabulous weekend in New York last evening. My daughter had never been to NYC before and it was everything she expected and more. The shows were fantastic as expected and my daughter was speechless. We had a great time!"
Erik, Idaho

"Thank you so much for your help in planning our trip to New York City. We had a wonderful time. We had virtually NO trouble at all."

Carol and Rick, Maine

"I just wanted to say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for all your help and perseverence in planning and putting everything together for us. I will definetely recommend NYCVP to anyone who is thinking of a weekend in the Big Apple."

"Thanks Jennifer, both for your handling of the refund and you overall 'niceness'. You were a pleasure to work with."
"Thanks for a quick response. It was very easy and the response was fast. Works great!”

"Just wanted to send a quick note of thanks for arranging my New York trip. We had a fantastic time. The hotel was in a great location and the Broadway seats and shows were outstanding. We couldn't have asked for a better time (except maybe for cooler temps, but it was the same here in the midwest). Everything went so smoothly. I will definitely recommend your company to anyone I know that is planning on a trip to New York. I can't wait to go back! Thanks again for everything!"

"You've been extremely accommodating and helpful - I'll pass your name along."

"Just a quick note to thank you for all your help in arranging our trip to NY city."

"Thanks for recommending the Park Central Hotel. It was very convenient for us to get around from that central point. The Broadway tickets were great and we really enjoyed the show. It was also very convenient to have all the admissions included (less lines to stand in!).”

"NYCVP, Just wanted to drop a note and tell you all that my family has just returned from a vacation that you all helped us plan. We would not and could not have enjoyed our time in New York any better. Your staff was great to work with and helped us fit everything into our short visit. Without your help we would only have seen a fraction of the city, would never have gotten a hotel so close to times square (the center of the world), and last but not get us tickets to two of the most popular broadway shows was just above and beyond. I could go on and on...but please just accept a heart felt thanks from our family."
Reeves/MacDonald Family Jacksonville AR

"Beth, we returned from our trip last Sunday night. It was a great four days and using your company made it so easy. Everything was seamless, from the hotel to the show tickets. I will recommend you to others who want to visit the Big Apple. We got tickets to Good Morning America on St. Patrick's day and were even on TV for 5 seconds. Seeing the parade standing across from St. Patrick's Catherdral was an extra we didn't even plan on. Thanks for your help. You made our vacation easy and fun."
SB Dallas TX

"Dear Bethany,
Back  just before the 9/11 disaster, my wife and I took a trip w/ NYCVP.  I have never been more satisfied with a company in my life.  We have been dying to go back.  I took home the itinerary last night and my wife is very excited.  I just wanted to check out the hotel and the shows before I made my choices.  She might want to see the producers.   We are still thinking about what else we want to do.  Last time we visited MMA, so this time we want to visit the Museum of  Natural History.  I am excited about using your company again and I trust you explicitly.  I have nothing but wonderful things to say about you and your organization."

"Dear Beth,
Our trip was wonderful, thanks to you. You did A great job! Are seats were front row, our room was over looking 49th street, very cool!

Marc & Sharon, Lancaster CA
"Hi Celia,
Just wanted you to know what a WONDERFUL time Dana and I had this past Dec. It was just as you described...but you don't know until you see it. We were on the terrace overlooking Time Square for New Years...AWESOME! After speaking with you about extra tickets for performances...I did call the Broker directly...spoke with Theresa and we saw The Lion King. Everything was wonderful. Thank you so much for helping us to plan a great vacation. I will remember you the next time myself or anyone I hear needs help in planning a great vacation to New York. Happy New Year!"
ES, Alexandria VA
"Wanted to check back with you to let you know all went just great in New York over the holidays.  Enjoyed the hotel as well as the shows.  New York is something else - no place in the world quite like it.  We usually stay at the Marriott Marquis Hotel on our visits but this time stayed at the Crowne Plaza per your tour.  Excellent hotel and excellent location.  Actually nice to be out of the thick of the crowds where finding a place to walk on the sidewalk is a challenge.  Overall it was a super trip."
DW, Champaign IL
"THANK YOU so very, very much.  Our first experience in New York City was incredible.  Everything with NYCVP was perfect.  The room was great, the vouchers were easy, I am in LOVE with the city and will be returning (probably when warm b/c we FROZE lol but still loved every minute of the glamorous NYC)!"
JL, Hattiesburg MS
"Just got back…NYC was fantastic! The voucher booklet provided by yourselves was the icing on the cake – I will have no hesitation in recommending NYCVP to anyone and everyone, the hotel exceeded expectations…everything was peachy!"

"My wife and I want to let you know how pleased we were with the accommodations and tours your company arranged for us in June 2005. The hotel (Warwick) was superb in every way. We particularly enjoyed the All Loops Tour recommended by you and the theatre orchestra seats were much better than we had expected. Thank you again for this memorable trip provided by your company."
Sincerely, RS, Eustis FL

Thanks so much for booking our trip to New York. We all had a great time. The hotel was so convenient. We went to Chicago, French Culinary School for lunch, Grey Line hop on off, we were on Good Morning America Tuesday a.m. We saw a lot in 3 days. We rode the subway and did a horse and buggy ride in Central Park."
"Debbie, I just wanted to write and say that we had a wonderful time in NYC......everything was perfect, the accommodations were awesome and the 4th of July boat cruise was the BEST!  The people from your company that were with us were so great.  Just wanted to write and say thank you for a great vacation!"

"Hi Beth,
We loved our vacation in New York!!!!! It was so great! We would love to go back some time again. Not sure when but we will. :) Thank You so much for all your help you gave us."
KO, Toledo OH
Our trip was superb. We had great seats for all shows and everything just fell into place. The girls had such a good time...We rode the bicycle pumped buggies and that was a blast. Rode the buggy around Central Park. Had first row seats for The Blue Man Group and they were so good. Messy but good. We had to wear ponchos during the show and oh heck! Phyllis got splattered good. We voted "Mamma Mia" our best show."
"Dear Tara, Last spring, I arranged a walking tour of lower manhattan with NYCVP--Jonathan Bardwell was our tour guide and it was fabulous!  We would like to arrange another tour this spring--April 13 (Sunday) with Jonathan. He tells me he is available. Please let me know what the next step is!"
"Just wanted to tell you thank you for all your help, we are all looking forward to visiting New York for the first time. You really made this easy for us, I appreciate your help and advice. Thanks."
"Debbie, I wanted to get back with you and let you know that the trip went without a hitch! The hotel was great, the show spectacular, and the weather perfect. We had one day with light shower and we just continued right through it! I want to thank you for everything you did to make this trip a reality. Your website made it so much easier for us to determine what we wanted to do, but also what we could afford. And then . . . it was still more than we'd hoped. I've told everyone I know about your site, so hopefully you'll be getting some more trip requests coming your way."

"Hello Bethany,
I just wanted to take a moment and let you know that my very best friend and I went through you to plan our trip to NYC. We went 6/1-6/3 and it was wonderful. Everything we planned on doing, we did! Planning the trip through you gave us the best possible deal. The map that you provided was very helpful, we were able to plan our days based on proximity which allowed us to see and do everything that we wanted to. I would definitely go through your company to plan my next trip! Thank you very much!"
RR, Camden DE
"Beth, Thank you so much for all of your help. Our trip to NYC was wonderful. You put together exactly the type of trip I was looking for, we had plenty of time to see and do everything, we felt informed and safe. The View was perfect for my daughter's 16th birthday dinner. Everything that you arranged for us was very easy. As you know, we all have our stereotypes of New Yorkers, hicks from Kansas, cowboys, etc....HOWEVER, I found New Yorkers to be friendly, courteous, kind and charming. The only rude people I ran into were the other AMERICAN tourists like us on the day we waited outside the Today show. Thanks again for serving us and for sharing your city with us. I've traveled a lot, but I'm not sure I have come home feeling this proud to be an American in a long time."
SP, Wichita KS
 Just wanted to thank you for all of your help. We just returned from our trip and we had a great time. Everything went very smoothly. Loved the city, the sites and the people!

We really appreciate everything you did for us."

"Hi Beth: This is Florentino. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your arrangements, everything was just great. Your last minute adjustments worked out fine. Even though we arrived another day late due to a storm, everybody honored the original package. I really appreciate all the help, and you guys were just fantastic."

I just wanted to say thank you again for all that you did in booking our trip!!! We just got back last Friday night. We could not have had a better time...everything we saw was fantastic and the weather was perfect!!! I will definitely forward your name and your company on to any of my friends that want to come to NY!!!!! The highlight of the whole trip was that we
were on the Today show Tuesday and Friday and Regis and Kelly Wednesday and Thursday!!!! We are sorta "home town celebrities" ha!!! Thank you again."
KE, Waldron, Arkansas
"Dear Celia:
What a wonderful time my sister and I had last weekend in New York!!!! The package we booked was perfect. No hassles, no problems - and lots of fun. The Warwick was fabulous. The transfers to and from the airport were great. We were so centrally located that we found our way around the city very easily. Not bad for 2 gals that have never been to New York before. Wicked was the best performance I have seen in a long while. I did fill out and drop into the mail yesterday the comments coupon that was included...The prix fixe meals were GREAT. We had very nice selections to choose from and no problems. Eating at Tavern on the Green was like eating in a fairy tale. So Beautiful!! My sister and I have told so many people about your services including the 7 people that we rode the shuttle back to the airport with on Sunday. They all wrote down your web site. We can't wait to come back to the city and do it again. We will most certainly call and book it with you. Thanks for helping us to plan such a great trip!

"Hi Bethany
You did a wonderful job putting together our vacation to New York City, everything was perfect (except weather) we had a wonderful time. My mother's dream came true, and on top of that she met Katie Couric and had a picture taken with them both. There is so much to do in New York City and never enough time. I would love to go back soon, but [this] vacation inquiry is for our friends. I printed out an example of the great packages you have he will look at them. Again many thanks for the great vacation package. Looking forward to our next visit to NYC."

"Hi Beth,
It has taken me awhile to get back to you regarding our trip to New York. It was awesome. Mama Mia was spectacular and worth seeing again. Everything that you booked for me was perfect........Broadway Joe's - oh my God! Everyone really enjoyed it........I will recommend them to anyone, as I will also recommend NYCVP to anyone that is thinking of coming to New York. Thank you for all the help you provided to me. The smile and look of awe on the faces of the ladies that went with me was worth every penny that I paid for the trip. I couldn't have asked for anything else."

"Your package appears to be the best overall deal. I would like to pay one price for an all-exclusive package because on vacation you should be enjoying yourself not stressing out."

"I wanted very much to let you know what a fine tour guide you provided us on our recent trip.  Her name is Georgienne Miller and she accompanied a group
including myself, my daughter-in-law and my granddaughter on the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island tour.  She gave us so much useful and interesting information and was a delight to be with.  She gave us directions and maps and told us the best means of transportation to just about every landmark we could think of.  I noticed that she tried to accomodate every person in the group.  Please know that we appreciated her helpfulness and hope you will
tell her so. Sincerely,"
"To Whom It May Concern: Our family just returned from a weekend in NYC. We had a wonderful time. Our travel agent put our weekend package together using your services and we were very pleased. We especially enjoyed our tour guide on Sunday to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Darryl Reilly provided us with a wonderful walking tour of the Battery Park area as well as Ground Zero. We felt this was a terrific and unexpected benefit to our group meeting a 8am and boarding the ferry at 10am. We were not rushed (a novelty in NYC) and felt the visit was informative on a more personable level. Our two sons, ages 8 and 11, also enjoyed Darryl's antics." LW, Manchester NH
"Dear Beth,
I just want too give you a feed back of our recent reservations at the Sofitel in NYC. The hotel was superb. They were able to give us the two adjacent rooms at the end of the hall, so it was like a suite set-up, very convenient and the rooms were in the 19th floor. One of the rooms had a nice view to the Empire State and Chrysler Buildings. I really appreciate your service and help with the reservations."
GM, Daly City CA 
"Hello Celia! My husband & I returned from New York last Sat. We booked the Hotel Edison, a bus tour & Mamma Mia tickets through your company. Everything went smoothly. Loved the Edison- small, clean, updated corner room on top floor. Perfect location! Central Park is absolutely amazing. I had just read an article in National Geographic Magazine regarding the planning & making of this gorgeous park. What an oasis in the middle of a busy city! I love Manhattan! But it's nice to be back in our quiet little city. Many thanks to you!"
IE, Sudbury ONT
We just returned from our 6 days in NYC, thanks to you and the package you put together for us. We lucked out and the weather was just great. The two shows- Mama Mia, and Lion King were wonderful--and you got us great seats. This was a surprise anniversary trip for my wife--and celebrating my retirement on 4/1. The Hilton was great--and located near the activity. Getting around was a snap with the subway and bus system. The dinner at the VIEW was great as well, as was the World Cruise on the Hudson/East River on our anniversary night."
JH, Bellgrade MT
My friends and I just wanted to thank you for arranging our trip. We just got back Friday evening and had a wonderful time. The Belvedere was a beautiful hotel with very helpful staff. Our seats for "Wicked" and "Hairspray" were terrific...only four rows back at "Hairspray"! The shows were tremendous. The vouchers made everything go smoothly. We will not hesitate to recommend your company to friends and family, and of course, we will definitely visit New York again with your help. Thanks again."
RW, SN, SH, RW, Russell KY
We just had to send you a note to let you know what a wonderful time we had in New York City this past weekend. The Broadway show Wicked was excellent, dinner at Gallagher’s was scrumptious, and the sightseeing was fantastic! We encountered no problems whatsoever with any of the reservations. We have to admit, however, that we were waiting for something to go wrong (because with our luck, it always seems to), but nothing did --- it all went very smooth. We will definitely use NYCVP again if we ever make it back to the Big Apple. Thanks again for all your help!!"

Thank you so much for all of your help, it was great!"

"Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our trip to NYC 12/21-24! Was wonderful to have the vouchers and everything taken care of for us. Kudos to the front desk staff at Novotel for offering to change our room for a Times Square view. We had a great time at the Intrepid, seeing the Rockettes and doing the NBC Studio Tour."
DC, Maryland
"Mom and I were talking about what a great time we had last year on our vacation you organized for us. Thank you for helping us have such great memories. You were so awesome! Mom had a quadruple bi-pass in early December, so this New Year's Eve was a little different that celebrating on Times Square. But we kept seeing things on the TV that we had seen in person last year. It really helped to have such a great trip to remember and such a great trip planner. Thank you. Hopefully next year I'll be contacting you to schedule another fun trip!"
"Hi Bethany -- just a note to tell you your arrangements were great -- the tour was excellent -- amazing how much one can fit into a week end!

We got back from our New York trip yesterday. Everything was fabulous! You did a great job of organizing everything for us--far better than I could have done on my own. Thank you for all your help and patience. The Waldorf lived up to its reputation, the plays were wonderful, plane trip went smoothly both ways... Again, you performed a wonderful service, and I have been telling everybody about your web site."

"Bethany, I wanted to email you and say thank you very much for the week end package you put together for my wife and I for our 25th anniversary. Every thing worked out great. We got to do and see just about everything. The flights were smooth the hotel was Sofitel and the play was funny. So again Thank You and God Bless."

"Bethany, THKS for all your patience and help. I did not make this easy for you and I applaud your persistence at getting back to me, with exactly what I asked for, and doing it so nicely. Please pass this info on to your boss as I see you as an asset to your area."
"Sorry to just be getting back to you, but we had a wonderful time in New York. Everything worked like clockwork. Thank you for making our vacation effortless. I think we will probably make this a yearly trip if not more often. Please feel free to send me any specials you have as you get them. We do a lot of two, three, and four day getaways because of being realtors we can't always plan to far ahead. Thank you again for your help."
DB Arlington TX
"[This package] sounds great to me! so we'd see wicked AND the lion king, or wicked OR the lion king (like it really matters, so long as we see at least one!!) yey! i am excited! and I like the museum thing, and the not having to search for restaurants and yeyeyeyey! will we see central park? can I look at times square? do I have to sleep? (does this package include lots and lots of coffee/mountain dew, lol) ok, bye bye!"
"Hi Beth, Just a note to say thanks. Everything went as planned. I never thought planning a trip could be so easy. Just click and get ready to go. I'm in love with NYCVP and will use it every chance I get. By the way, we loved New York City. Can't wait to go back. Many thanks again."
KR, Mandeville LA
"Dear Beth,
I just wanted to send you a note to thank you for all you did to make my wife and my 25th Anniversary trip to New York so fabulous. Every detail you handled was smooth and easy. We loved the Warwick hotel, the seats to the Producers were the best we've ever had to any show we've ever seen, and as a baseball fan, my trip to Yankee Stadium was like a trip to Mecca. We truly had the time of our lives, and it was probably the first vacation we have taken where we weren't anxious to get back home. We would not hesitate for one second to recommend your service to anyone contemplating a trip to the big apple. Thank you again for everything."
MO San Leandro CA
Just wanted you to know that our family just returned from the New York City vacation you arranged for us and we had an absolute marvelous time. Everything was outstanding. I could not be more pleased with the results. The accommodations, play and sight seeing passes you provided us were just the right ticket. We are already planning our return trip for next year and will definitely let you know when we are ready. Thanks again for the memories I am sure will last us a life time."
DH Alliance, Ohio
"Beth, you helped me set up a vacation to NY in June. I just wanted to drop you a line and say "Thanks." We had an absolutely wonderful time. Everything was great. The Belvedere which you suggested was the perfect location for us. Having already planned a number of events really helped us organize our trip and use the most of our time. I have been asked by several friends what travel agency we used and how much it cost. I have given your company's name to everyone who ask because we had such a great experience in NY. Again Thanks for all your help in setting up our vacation and rearranging it at the last minute..."
PS Leesville LA
Just wanted to let you know how well it all turned out. The seats for Wicked were incredible (as was the show)!! Hairspray was a hoot. Our hotel was wonderfully situated. All in all it was a WONDERFUL visit. Anyway, I have recommended your company to others considering a trip to NYC, and will certainly come back to you in the future. Thanks again."
NL Bremerton WA
Just thought I'd let you know that my friend and I had a fabulous time in New York. The hotel (W New York) was excellent, the shows were wonderful, and the sightseeing exceeded to our expectations. Booking through NYCVP simplified everything - I'll definitely use your services again (and recommend you to others!) Thank you!"

I booked a tour with your company through my travel agent - Hartville Travel in Hartville, Ohio, the other day. It was a pleasure doing business with your company.Thanks."

"Hi, Bethany:
I was trying to get an idea of the cost of a Christmas week trip to NYC but we will probably not be making it until December 2005. We're busy saving the money and will make our reservations with your organization for sure! It IS a wonderful deal!"
"I've been visiting the NYCVP site so much, it is a great relief to know that such a site is out their for people like me who would like to visit NY and have an outlet that is so willing to help out!"
Just returned last p.m. from New York City. My trip was wonderful and everything I hoped it would be. The dinner at Foley's was fantastic, sightseeing tour great and what can I say about the production of Chicago. We did a lot of things on our own too and everyone was so nice. Times Square was the place for me to be on my 65th birthday - one I will always cherish, have pictures galore. Hope to come back one day. Thank you for helping me plan the perfect birthday get-a-way with my two daughters and best friend...Thanks again."

"Hi Beth,
We had a BLAST!! We had so much fun. My mom was really surprised. We didn't get to do everything as planned but it was everything and more. Between her and I, we are telling everyone. Don't worry, we're planning another trip to NY and we'll be emailing you:-)!! The play was da bomb!! Those seats were excellent...Madame Tussauds was fun. I was so scared when we went through the Chamber of Horrors. The wax figures look so real that at one time, I almost asked one of them to excuse themselves (LOL)."

"Hi Debbie, Just want to let you know that we had a great time in the "Big Apple. All of the accommodations were great The hotel was wonderful, as well as dinner at Patsy's Italian restaurant, Did a little research on the restaurant, and that was Frank Sinatra's favorite restaurant when he came to NY, he even has his own private entrance, as well as a dish named after him. Tavern on the Green was equally great, except for the rain, but luckily it didn't rain all day. The Lion King was as fabulous, as well as the seats. I could go on and on. Just wanted to let you know that you did a great job for us. Thanks again."

"Dear Alisa,
 You are great and very fast! I got the ticket info and i did print it already. Thanks a lot! We are very pleased with this perfect service and are looking forward to be your guests. Kind regards,"
"Hi Michelle,
Just wanted to let you know that we truly enjoyed our NYC trip!  We were a tiny bit apprehensive about staying at the Hotel Edison (only because we read reviews on TripAdvisor...); but, it was a PERFECT location--we had very clean room--two beds in each room, just as we had requested.  The hotel staff was very accomodating and friendly!  No problems!  We four ladies would definitely stay here again!!
Thank you for assisting in this great 5 days in New York City!"
"We had a wonderful time on our trip to New York; wanted to thank you both for putting together such a great trip. The hotel, the shows, the tours - it was the most exciting city I've ever been to. Thanks again."

"Hi Celia,
I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know how much my daughter and I enjoyed our NYC vacation last week. The Waldorf Astoria was absolutely magnificent...we even got upgraded to a 2-room suite when there was a problem with our first room assignment. The Waldorf treated us like royalty and I would stay there again for sure. Being away from the bustle of Times Square and Broadway was a welcome relief. The limo to JFK was elegant and he offered us snacks and drinks during the ride. The limo driver who picked us up from JFK should have been more accommodating, but one glitch in an otherwise flawless trip is definitely no big deal. Our theater tickets to both plays, Hairspray and A Raisin In The Sun, were superb...thanks for getting us great seats to great shows (the women in the play more than made up for P. Diddy's bad acting !!!). This is the first trip where every item planned through you was better than I anticipated. I kept waiting for a big snafu, but everything was wonderful. I can't wait to go back and see all that we didn't see this trip. My favorite time was dinner at Tavern On The Green and a horse & buggy ride through Central Park. My daughter's favorite tour was the Sex and the City Tour. You and your company get 2 thumbs up from me. I will definitely contact you again when I visit NYC. Thanks so much for all you did to make our trip hassle-free and wonderful!!"

"Good Afternoon Beth:
I just wanted to send you a note to advise you that the trip you booked for my family for the first week of May/04 in New York went off without a hitch. Everything you arranged and sent to us (flights, hotel, show tickets and reservations) was incredibly organized. The seats for the show Chicago were fantastic! We had an incredible time in New York and can't wait to go back, and you can be sure we will use your service again. I have recommended your website to numerous people that I work with as several are planning trips to New York. On a scale of one to ten I would rate your service an 11.
Thanks for everything."
VB, Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario
I just returned from my vacation in NYC on Friday. We could not have been more pleased with all the accommodations. There were 6 of us in the suite and not once did we feel we were on top of each other. Much more roomier than the average hotel room in NYC. Anytime we requested something, the staff was right on top of it. DoubleTree was in the best location for our plans, as we were able to walk everywhere we went. I would recommend the DoubleTree to anyone with families staying in the city. I know myself, I would happily stay there again. Thanks for helping our vacation to be a success."
KT, Norwell MA
"Dear Beth,
Well, we made it back safe and sound (with memories and pictures to remind us of our wonderful trip to NY).
1. Flights/seats were great.
2. Our room overlooked the sparkle of Times Square.
3. The play (Chicago) was terrific - seats outstanding!
4. The Harbor Lights Cruise was breathtaking (especially as we came to the Statue of Liberty). I shed more than one tear seeing her (and Ground Zero the next day).
5. The
Manhattan Comprehensive Tour was well worth the time & $. It would have taken weeks to see all that on our own.
6. Dinner at Tavern on the Green was especially memorable (that would be my favorite restaurant for special occasions if I lived there) ...
Anyway, I just want to thank you again for all of your expertise in making our arrangements but, especially, for our penpal communication through this process. I'll never forget New York - or you. You're wonderful, Beth, and I'll tell anyone contemplating a trip to NY to only go through you.
Thanks, again."

"Hi Beth,
Just wanted to let you know we had a super time in NYC this past weekend. The Show "Movin Out" was fantastic!! Our Hotel "Park Central" was in a nice location, Near the park, and not to far from Time Square. We just wish we had more time to see more of Manhattan. Thank you for setting up this trip for us, there were no hassles with parking, the tickets, our room or the coupons that were included, it really make a vacation allot nicer when every thing goes smooth. I would have no Hesitations using NYCVP again. Thanks again"
TS Niskayuna NY
Just to confirm that the holiday was fantastic. This was the forth time my daughter and myself and second for my brother, but the Embassy Suites was by far the best hotel for value and service. I would highly recommend the Embassy Suites for anyone staying in New York and should I go again it would be top of my list.
The complimentary cook to order breakfast, evening drinks and hors d’oeuvres is a real money saver. When we have previously stayed in New York, it was always pretty central however staying down at the Embassy Suites caused no problems in getting around as the subway proved so easy to get to places and I couldn’t believe how cheap it is compared to London, $2 for a ride.
Apart from a mistake that I made on the date for the helicopter ride, I thought the 24th was a Sunday and not Monday and we turned up a day early, all went fine.
Although we didn’t book the NY Knicks basketball tickets through NYCVP, we managed to get tickets after queuing up, and it was brilliant.
I can guarantee that if we go again, I will be using NYCVP and the Embassy Suites again and I will be passing all my comments on to all my friends. The only thing for next time is that I will ask for NYCVP to get my Knicks tickets."

"Dear Sirs,  I have received your brochure after visting the recent Holiday World Fair in the RDS Dublin, the organisers of which i am closely related. 
I am travelling to NY on the 28th February for 5 nights. My Party includes 5 adults and 1 baby(2 couples 1 with baby and 1 single). We wish to book some good quality accommodation. We are very familiar with New York having lived and worked there for a number on years. However we
always seem to make a mistake as to the accommodation and would like some recommondations from you.  We would like preferably a hotel, midtown would be good but not by any means necessary. Location is not as important as the actual accommodation, something of high standard and which will at the very least provide tea making facilities in the rooms (ie bottles for the
young baby)and a cot /crib in 1 of the rooms. Again preferably we would like 3 adjoining rooms, with windows over looking a street or avenue. 
I hope you can advise, i look forward to hearing from you, and would like to take this opportunity to congratulate you on your recent attendance at the Fair here in Dublin. Yours faithfully,"

"Tara...Thank you so much for all your help with my first tour! Everyone has talked about doing it again next year and getting friends to go so we'll see how many we can sign up.  Now I'll know how to schedule it all. We just hope for fabulous weather next time, too. The hotel is a great location especially for the coach pick-ups and the coaches were all on time and very accommodating - Kramer coach (to/from the Open) got an A++. Legally Blonde was terrific. Even the men enjoyed it as there was plenty of eye candy.  It was just a fun and entertaining play for all. The Open seats were quite high up in the stands but nobody complained. I told them we didn't get our numbers in time  to qualify for  lower promenade and everyone was OK with that. We all just liked being on the grounds and watching the side court matches.  It was an easy-going group with no problems although we did have to change one passenger to another for the flights - good thing it was a group ticket there. Let me know when you get enough NYC 2008 info for another Open package. I'll probably start with a flyer in January or sooner, if you think that would be helpful. Regards."
"Dear Debbie,
We're back! We had a great time and want to thank you for all you did to make everything a happy memory for us. We want to tell you about everything we liked. I know you don't want to hear it all, but we figure it will help to share our experiences with others who might be planning a trip. Feedback as it were.
My family loved the vouchers...with everything prepaid, we felt like we here traveling as honored guests. The DoubleTree worked perfectly for the 3 of us and the staff was very accommodating... especially our maid Carmen (she even left us thank you notes for being so neat!), the doormen (always cheerful, professional and informative) and the attendants (ready to get us a cab, provide directions, help in any way). The concierge was helpful as well (made calls to set up our transfers). The room was comfortable, provided all of the amenities that we desired and was 22 floors away from most of the street noise (higher is definitely better). The hotel was perfectly situated to everything we wanted to do and we walked everywhere from there.
The Grayline bus tour provided a great way to observe the city and we explored much based on what we saw on this tour. The tour operators were very knowledgeable...

We enjoyed the variety of the many experiences as well. We visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art and took the ride up the Empire State Building to the Observatory. The pageantry of the Lion King was something to see, but the comedy and musical precision of Stomp was definitely our favorite.
All of our cab drivers were quick, efficient and fun to talk with. We learned about their work, their families and their hopes and dreams as they came from Haiti, India, and Bangladesh.

So many of our meals were so very good. We can't say enough about Broadway Joe's and Langans. The food was better than fantastic and the people there took such good care of us.. Especially Franco at Broadway Joe's. Hurley's was also very good... the best cheesecake ever. When we missed our original reservation, they were very kind about our showing up very 4 hours. They just joked and said they missed us and brought out the best food... Stopped at Ray's Pizza and it was great.

The flight was great. Would also recommend the Embraer 145 jet. It was quiet and you could keep your bags close... at least in Greensboro. They took them (the larger bags) at the gate and returned them to you as you disembarked. At Laguardia we had to check them but that was fine too. Checking in with an e-ticket is definitely the way to go. Getting to the airport too early is a waste of time. At Greensboro we were ready to go 15 minutes after we took 30 minutes at Laguardia. I guess you still have to be sure, however.

The trip to the top of the Empire State building and our meandering the halls of the Metropolitan Museum of Art were equally inspiring. We saw Usher at MTV and Norah Jones at the Today show and had our pictures shown on a billboard at Times Square. We ferried over to see Lady Liberty and found our family name at Ellis Island. Everything we've seen on TV, we now have our own personal reference point. We loved the architecture and were intrigued by the workings of the city.

I'm still tired so I'm sure I've missed something or haven't explained it very well, but the short of it is, we were very pleased with our trip and we appreciate everything that you and NYCVP tours did to make it special and hassle free. Thanks!"
KH, Statesville NC

"Hi Erin,
 We had a Fantastic time. The Park Central Hotel was nice, missed having a mini fridge and microwave though. The staff was very friendly and helpful and a great location.
I would say our favorite part was the Ground Zero and Statue of Liberty Tour. You just don't get the full experience without the tour!!! Tony did a wonderful job!!
We didn't use our Shop and Hop passes at all. We walked, took the subway, or a taxi. That was easier than the bus. I would not recommend purchasing that in the future...
The Phantom of the Opera was great and very good seats. My daughter is a drama major and she really enjoyed seeing a big show...
I have been recommending your company to everyone I know!!
Thanks, Erin, for your help in making our vacation a ONE of a Kind Memory!!

Hi Celia,
I just had to write to tell you that we had the best time in NYC. The hotel was fantastic. Hilton Time Square. The room was big and beautiful and the location was just awesome. Right in the middle of everything. Friday, the American Girl Place was our first stop, no lines and wasn't busy at all. My daughter loved it....and my husband did too. Next stop was the Met...loved it. We had Rays NY pizza and then off to Toys R' Us. Great time riding the Ferris Wheel. Saturday, we did the Empire State Building, that was neat to see. A bit exhausting climbing the last 6 flights but the view is so worth it. Then we were off to Central Park at 5th ave and we got to see the Pope in his Popemobile. That was a bonus! Such a mixed bag of emotions being in the crowd. Then that night off to see Hairspray. Awesome!!!! Great and entertaining. We all loved it and to top it off, my daughter was able to get autographs from the cast. Sunday, took the subway to Battery Park and off to se e the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. That was fantastic and humbling too. We had a really great time I just can't say it enough.
Thank you for all that you did. I have already recommended your services to others.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you,"

The whole thing was the best part. My husband said it was the best 3 day weekend of his life. We only saw the Pope wave from his Pope mobile. However, we did get a picture. It was truly a memorable experience and would definitely call you when we are ready to do it again.
Thank you again so very much,"

"You've been so much help Celia.  I will get my friends and family to contact you before arranging their trips to NYork.  I'm sure I will come back for another visit and I'll email you first.  You're the best.
Thanks so much."

"Hello, I took a tour of Liberty & Ellis Island on Tuesday, April 22, 2008 and  Chris Lucas was my groups tour guide.  Throughout the entire tour I kept thinking that Chris had done these tours for years since he was soooooo  knowledgeable, interesting and entertaining.  To my surprise when we  asked how long he had been doing these tours he said it was his first day!  He was non-less short of spectacular.  I have gone on many tours,
but he was undoubtedly the best tour guide I have had the pleasure to be in company with.  Please give him my many thanks for a great time!"

"I set this Tour up to go with Chris' group.  Boy, did he ever Do a topnotch job. And, he was great on the subway and With return directions on the train. Kudos to Chris Lucas And your company for hiring the best. Please compliment him For all four of us. My thanks."

"Hi Beth, 
Just wanted thank you for  setting up a great trip.  The tickets for the three musicals were excellent. The tour guides  for the Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island (Georgina)  and   Lower Manhatten (Tony) tours were excellent.  Wouldn't change a thing."

"Hello, Pam,
Elaine and I wanted to give you the rundown of our trip to NYC in April. We'll start at the beginning and go to the end! First of all, IT WAS FANTASTIC!  We would not have changed a thing!!  Our flights were on time and very accommodating. When we first arrived we took a taxi to the New York Palace (this place was excellent!), unloaded our bags (our rooms were ready) and hit the streets to shop. We were very pleased with our dinner reservations at Patsy's.  To keep from repeating myself, we shopped and shopped and shopped!!! Saturday (after shopping) we got ready for our dinner at The View, which was great, and then to the theater to see Phantom. I can't tell you how much we enjoyed that!  It being our first Broadway show, I don't think we could have picked a better one.  We took taxis everywhere we didn't walk and was very pleased with the fares, especially when we split them in half. We knew our breakfasts and lunches we wanted to be typical New York, so we found bagel shops and delis.  We ate at the Carnegie Deli and talk about wonderful!!!  It was!! Our dinner cruise on Saturday night was so much fun.  There was a group of young people, probably in their early 20's, who were celebrating having a grammar school reunion. (I've heard of high school reunions, but never grammar school), but they kept the dance floor hot!! The food was wonderful and the view, especially of the Statue of Liberty at night, was breathtaking. The DJ played patriotic music as we cruised by, and it really made us aware of the freedom we enjoy.  You said you had not been on the World Yacht Cruise -- well, we highly recommend it. The only thing we did not get to do, was the Empire State Building. The morning we planned to do that it was very foggy, so we felt like we would not be able to see much.  There's always next year. 
We definitely plan on making this an annual trip and we'll  be using your company again.  Our only desire is that we will be able to stay at the New York Palace again because, not only was it evident it was a 5-star hotel, it was definitely centrally located to everything we wanted to see and do.
This was also the weekend that the Pope was in town. We even got to see him in one of the motorcades, and that was not planned on our part. We just happened to be waiting for Bloomingdale's to open and here he came!! We are almost 100% sure he stayed at the Palace. There was security like you wouldn't believe inside and outside the hotel. They were even pressure washing the sidewalks and we knew they weren't doing it for us!!  We went into St. Patrick's Cathedral after all the excitement had calmed down and that took our breathe away. will definitely be hearing from us again next year as April was the perfect time to go. We wanted you to know that we couldn't have enjoyed ourselves more!  Thanks for all your help and your wonderful suggestions."
