22 Oct 2008 Stephanie asked

Hey Everyone<BR><BR>Just wondered if anyone that has done this tour or knows about it can give me some advice. Just wanting to know what you do on the NYC Explorer that is not listed in the book - do you walk over the Brooklyn Bridge?<BR><BR>My partner and I are there 3 days before the tour starts so we dont want to do the same things twice with so much to do and so little time!

    I did this tour last winter, and we did not walk over the Brooklyn Bridge- we had ample time at a photo stop to take photos though.

    I would suggest that if you’re planning on shopping, that you do that on your own…as the places where things like that are listed are often rushed or limited time. My roommate and I actually skipped out on some activities so we would have time to do some shopping…

    Have fun!

    If you feel like shopping, there’s a very frequent bus out to an outlet mall called Woodbury Common, you just get it from Port Authority. It’s a great way to spend a day, and the deals are great. I got 3 Betsey Johnson Dresses for $360 instead of over $1000.

    I finished this tour last week. Brooklyn Bridge is not on the itinierary but a group of us used our free time for the walk , however we were the group that didn’t do the TV show tour so it really depends.
