Good but rushed - Good but all a bit manic. Guide was really knowledgeable but very rushed. Didn't bother going with her to Ground Zero as she was rushing too much on Ennis Island.

Viator boat ride in NYC - We showed up at the correct time to meet the Viator guide and no one showed up. We carried contacting Viator and we were unable to reach a real person. We had prepaid and so far have had no luck getting on touch with them. We also spent $78 on Ubers which was a loss.

Sold a bag of beans - I bought the package as it says online you are able to skip the line, but they need to specify that it's only the line to pay for the ticket and not the real line that takes up to 2+ hours in for security that everyone stands in. The tour guide was disconnected from the majority of the group and by the end of the tour, there was only 4 out of a group of at least 17 that stayed. We would have been better served just doing everything on our own. First time I regretted using a Viator tour and will definitely look closer next time. When talking to Cesar (Manager) you just got the sense that this is common practice and they get this line complaint all the time but refuse to change their website stating that you can skip the lines.

Biggest Scam Ever - Worst experience ever. This tour wasn't a tour at all. More of a scam to be honest. Our tour was scheduled with Cesar for 11:30 however when Cesar arrived, we were handed off to another guide, LeeAnn. When the tour started we spent about 2 hrs with LeeAnn in the security line waiting to board the Ferry to the statue. After about 2.5 gruesome hours of long lines and endless standing, we finally boarded the ferry and our tour guide, LeeAnn was never to be seen again. So basically we paid about $400 to hear stories of the statue to only be sent out to self guide ourselves. Remind you this was suppose to be a 5 hour tour. She was not at the meet up points that she claimed she would be at, she didn't have any type of vest or flag to be identified or nothing. Biggest scam ever.
