"Usually better"

I booked a four o’clock ride in December hoping it would still be light enough to see the outside participants well enough . I have taken the ride before and enjoyed it four other times . The day we took it now it was a slightly rainy day and pretty grey outside. Didn’t see much of the Columbus circle ballerina Too dark and only light was on her skirt . The person I took along did enjoy it enough but I was a bit disappointed. There was also a lot of traffic so it was a slow go . Stuart the host was very good though. He tried to keep it funny through the long ride .

I was overall satisfied with the Ride but since I took the Ride 4 days later I visited NY so most of the places the Ride went were I already visited. Nevertheless it is great to see the places in the bus with great music.

I wasn’t sure what to expect from different reviews but also didn’t want to research too much as I didn’t want to spoil the surprise. I went with my 19 year old son, he was crying with laughter and I can honestly say that I laughed that much my cheeks were hurting. Stewart and Julia were hilarious. The outside entertainment was spot on. I also loved watching the people on the street’s faces it was pure genius. We went on The Ride on our last day to NY and it exceeded my expectations. Would definitely recommend. Well done x
