  2. City Sights NY
  3. Go Airlink NYC

You can use their services and website to book tours and attractions, transportation, broadway shows, dining and discount parking. They can help you plan group tours, special events and conventions by arranging group airport transfers and sightseeing tours. Out of four which is most suitable is also important and we'll discussed below.

#1 - City Experts NY   http://www.cityexperts.com/

City Experts NY promotes itself as a “full service concierge company”. Travellers to New York can use their services and website to book tours and attractions, transportation, broadway shows, dining and discount parking. They can help you plan group tours, special events and conventions by arranging group airport transfers and sightseeing tours. 

They offer a one-shop stop for visitors and tourists by placing a wide range of information on their website where you can browse what is available, make choices and pay for the experiences you choose. They have a live chat option and call centre where you can tap into local knowledge such as familiarity with city traffic patterns. The website is straightforward and prices are clearly displayed, including both adult and child rates where applicable. 

  • Assist visitors to New York to have a good experience
  • Use for booking tours, shows, dining and more
  • Can help with group arrangements
  • Clear pricing

Key Features

  • City Experts NY can help plan your transport, entertainment and dining in NYC
  • They provide detailed descriptions of all their options with clear pricing
  • They can help arrange group tours, special event and convention events
  • Options are wide ranging for different budgets
  • Can talk to real people to help you get the most from your NY visit

 Most state that the price includes tax and gratuities which is very useful for overseas visitors who may come from cultures where tipping is not expected and they can often find this aspect confusing. Although there is great variety in their dining options I was a little disappointed that as at December 2010 there were only 11 to choose from. 

This is a website for people who don’t know New York and want to have a planned experience. Most sections of the website cater to a wide range of price points and they are not focused on either the bargain or luxury tourist. 

 City Experts NY does not cover New York hotels on their website, which the other two both do. All 3 do a good job on tours, attractions, shows, restaurants/dining and special events but NYC.com covers much more, such as shopping, nightlife and spas.

#2 - City Sights NY   http://www.city sights ny.com

City Sights NY is a New York bus tour website where you can book hop-on-hop-off bus tours as well as tours in other forms, Broadway show tickets and tours which include admission to museums and other New York tourist sights. It is a one stop site for all your New York tour needs.

Key Features

  • You can book City Sights NY tours once you arrive in New York, but online booking gets you a $5 discount.

Hop-on-hop-off tours are perfect for first time travelers or a first trip to New York City as all the major tourist attractions and sights are covered in this vast and sometimes overwhelming city. The hop-on-hop-off tours are also ideas for a short visit to the Big Apple when you want to see all the main sights in a short period of time.

Once you have chosen your tour and booked you will be sent a voucher, simply print it out and present it to the City Sights NY offices Visitors Center in the lobby of the New York Madame Tussauds Museum.

#3 - Go Airlink NYC   http://www.goairlinkshuttle.com

Go Airlink NYC provides shared-ride airport shuttles between JFK, Newark and La Guardia Airports, and hotels and businesses between 20th Street to 125th Street, in both directions. They also have private vans, sedans and SUVs that can take you anywhere in the NYC, Connecticut, and Westchester area.

They promise economical and safe door-to-door transportation and their motto is “The only way to go.” They have a luggage allowance of two suitcases and one carry-on per passenger. You can book online and then print out your reservation voucher and hand it to the driver. If there is no shuttle at the airport you can use the airport courtesy phones to ring Go Airlink and let them know you have arrived and would like to be picked up. Reservations from hotels to the airport must be made at least 12 hours in advance.

Key Features 

  • Go Airlink NYC provides a relatively inexpensive option for airport transfers.
  • Drivers are locals who know the traffic and also the location of most hotels.
  • You can book your transport to the airport and not have to worry about looking up train or bus timetables.
  • Travelling in a shuttle keeps you safe from muggings or random violence.

One complaint about Go Airlink NYC revolves around the fact that you have to print your voucher out to give to the driver. This is not always feasible when staying in a hotel where you may not have printer access. The system needs to be changed so that printing is not necessary. They could send a confirmation SMS to your mobile instead, with a unique number that you could show the driver. One blogger described how printer problems made a mockery of their motto “The only way to go” because without a piece of paper he couldn’t go with them.

The shared-ride Go Airlink NYC shuttle option is best for passengers who want an inexpensive form of travel and have no time constraints. It is good for people who have never been to New York before and wish to be dropped off at the door of where they are going without having to read maps or timetables.

Those wishing to arrive at their destination more quickly are better off taking a SUV or sedan option without having to share. Go Airlink NYC is a good option for those who don’t wish to travel on public transport but don’t want to take an expensive taxi ride. It is a very convenient way of getting from your hotel to the airport without having to carry your luggage long distances.
