The Basics

Wading into the Atlantic Ocean at Coney Island is a quintessential New York experience. Visitors can book a day pass for Luna Park amusement park and try out retro rides, such as the antique B&B Carousell and the Cyclone, a wooden roller coaster that dates back to 1927, as well as playing classic arcade games like Whac-a-Mole.

Travelers can explore Coney Island on guided sightseeing and pizza-themed tours of Brooklyn, as well as on multiborough tours that hop between neighborhoods in Manhattan, the Bronx, Queens, and Brooklyn. Coney Island can also be seen from the water during Jet Ski tours and from the air during helicopter tours over NYC.

This was the best tour ever. I am so glad we decided to take this tour. We were able to see the Apollo Theatre, Yankee Stadium, Nathan's on Coney Island, and we drove down some streets to see some brownstones. We loved it all.

We arrived 30 minutes early before our reservation time which is a must for check in, waiver forms and safety protocols. The staff was friendly and professional. The ride was very smooth and great pilot as he gave us history about the boroughs.

The tour was worth the money! Our tour guide was knowledgeable about the subject matter & had a great sense of humor. The bus was clean & had built in cell phone chargers! One will certainly need that due to the amount of pictures that will be taken! A must do for anyone that’s interested in the other boroughs besides MANHATTAN!!!!

Informative tour, some tweaks needed

Our guide was great he had a lot of knowledge of all of the areas visited. I was a little disappointed with Coney Island as we were recommended to try the food at Nathan’s. It took so long to order and arrive (40 minutes) we only had 10 minutes to try and eat and have a look around. So we didn’t actually get so see much at all. Not the guides fault but maybe a longer stop is needed to get the full experience

I loved seeing all the Burroughs. It gave me a better perspective of NYC, not just Manhattan. We needed more time at Coney Island. There was not enough to eat a hot dog, let alone go to the Boardwalk or shop

Jorge was an awesome tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and shared a rich history of the various boroughs and the migrants. Thanks also to our quiet, but equally capable driver, Elvis!
