"Awesome experience"

The kids and I enjoyed The Ride experience thouroughly. During the rest of the time walking around on the streets of NYC, the kids would constantly point out all the Duane Reade stores and say, "Oh, look! It's the last Duane Reade Store because they got bought out by Walgreens" It made for a fun time for us even during the COVID-19 crisis when everything was shutting down. We're so glad we were able to do the tour before it shut down.

My 13 year old daugther and I were in NYC March 12-14 (we left early). Everything was closed because of the COVID-19 pandeminic, except for The Ride. This was the only bright spot of our trip, and I thank the team for keeping open at least that one day. It was awesome! We are coming back in November to finish our trip, and will definately do another of their tours.
