  • Been to NYC many times and this bike tour (as well at the Brooklyn bike tour we also did with Get Up and Ride) stands out as one of the best, most intimate ways to see this marvelous city and its peop...  more »
  • It really exceeded our expectations. This really is the way to get in a few hours time to the different areas of New York ' tests ' and stopping at a number of highlights. The guide was also very flexible and asked us where we were in terms of, for example, lunch and tuned the stops also really on the group. We were hesitant at first whether we would an English guide books, but hindsight are very happy that the drive was done by a resident from New York (Brooklyn). So you also get really how they live and feel you do just a little less a tourist. The bikes were also of very good quality and it is great that on the move via the earpieces statement on all sorts of things where we passed riding bicycle. I can go on, but I think you just have to go. Here you get no regret!

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
