    I did a tour with a different company a few months back that started kind of similar to this one for the first few days, we left New York about 7am and headed straight for Boston so probably best to do everything you wnt to before.

    I think i just want to be a total tourist in New York and see everything!! Definitely want to do Statue Of Liberty!
