Since this is your first time to visit New York and book and join a bus tour, here are a few friendly reminders tomake your first tour of the city a truly memorable experience:
1. Book early
It might seem like a minor reminder, but youd be surprised at how many people book their New Yorkbus tours, or any other tour for that matter, at the last minute. Booking at the last minute can greatly affectyour tour experience, and not in a good way. First off, you wont be getting the seat that you want.Secondly, you might not get to visit some of the places on your list because the itinerary that you prefer isalready fully booked. Lastly, there might no longer be available slots that will coincide with your time ofvisit.
Tinma Travel and Tours accepts bookings up to a year in advance.
2. Familiarize yourself with the tour providers cancellation policy
No one books a tour and plans on canceling at the last minute. But, unexpected events that may arisecould prevent you from joining the tour. When looking at New York bus tours from various providers,make sure to read their respective cancellation policies thoroughly. It will save you a lot of headachesshould you be unable to go.
Tinma Travel and Tours gives a 90% refund for cancellations made 15 days before the actual tourdate, 75% refund on cancellations made eight to 14 days before the departure date, and a 50% refund forcancellations made four to seven days before departure date.
3. Never stray away from your tour group
Like the first reminder above, this one might also seem inconsequential because you might think its agiven that you shouldnt leave your tour group or stray away from them, but this one is easy to forgetwhen something fancy and fascinating catches your attention. You might think that you can stay behindfor a couple of minutes and then catch-up, but you could get lost in the city in that small period, causingyour tour guide and group to worry over your “disappearance.” For the sake of your tour guide and group,never stray away from them.
If you need to use the bathroom or you want to buy something at a souvenir shop you just saw, makesure to let your tour guide know.
