The New York Times
October 14th, 2010

"As a tour, 'The Ride' was least successful...The finest moments had nothing to do with the city’s dazzling stage sets—its buildings and avenues—but with the great crowds found within them, which is why 'The Ride' is best taken when the streets are packed...'The Ride,' then, begins in pure silliness, much of it not too funny, but when that suited tap-dancer finishes his bit, the tour takes on a cinematic aura. This is, after all, how so many movies and Broadway shows work."

“Even if you know the city, you haven't seen it from this panoramic view…The scripted commentary is easygoing and friendly, though sometimes the guides' chirpy banter feels a little forced. When it does, it's best to ignore them and keep your eyes focused on the city. What makes ‘The Ride’ unique are street performers positioned strategically along the bus route who get in on the action…The moments are surprisingly charming.”

“If you’re looking for a fresh way to see New York City without doing a regular old bus tour, then this is the experience for you. ‘The Ride’ is the most entertaining sightseeing tour around!...A super-fun tour filled with interactive performances, trivia, comedy, and more…It’s a must-do in the Big Apple!...Hilarious. It was an awesome time overall, and definitely a change from the norm!”

Out With The Kids

“I gotta admit that this high-tech, very air-conditioned tour looked to be quite fun. And, well, it was that. And quite a bit more…This is not a cattle herd production like other tours, but rather a front-row seat to a series of intimate performances in the most active and intense city in the country. The contrast is stunning, the theatrics nothing short of delightful–even for this jaded non-tourist…In a city full of entertainment options, there is nothing quite like this.”
