Not completely satisfied

Since we did not take advantage of the other offers, we received a separate individual tour. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you again for this organization! The tour, however, was almost half as long as advertised. However, we only noticed later that we had skipped the Battery Park. Still, the tour was very interesting.

Cannot find the meeting point ('near Starbucks' is a joke)

Tour is maybe good but unfortunately not findable. The voucher read '1 Battery Park, near Starbucks'. Was there for half an hour, 3 tour guides were present, nobody had me on their 'list'. Apparently I didn't miss anyone either - although I had to give my email and phone number when booking. Should have canceled the tour when I got the voucher ... So I looked at the 9/11 Memorial myself and had 100x more of it.

We waited for the guide and she didn't show up. Contacted by phone, she replied that she was not on tour that day. They reported to the office and replied that due to a misunderstanding it was not possible to do the tour that day. This after 2 confirmation emails in the last 24 hours before the visit. I am absolutely dissatisfied and will not contact your network in the future.
