DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY.FRAUD! FRAUD! FRAUD! Most of their tour guides are international students who don't have authority to work in the United States, and they are paid off the books to avoid paying taxes. They over charge their customers. Like they actually charge to go the Metro Museum in Manhattan NYC but in all reality that museum is actually free to visit to the public. And on attraction that are not free they raise the price for their customers. Like the wax museum in Time Square NYC if the cost is $12 a ticket LL will charge $15 to their customers. They are also very unsafe. They make the driver's break DOT Federal laws and even if the weather is terrible they will NOT cancel the trip, they would rather risk your life, your children and families’ lives for their selfish greed. For instance, they had a mini bus get stuck in the snow through a winter storm near Buffalo NY in Dec 2014. The people were there most of the night, no food, no drinks, just stuck in this storm. This tour was not cancelled because LL Travel wants YOUR MONEY. So they risk those people's lives, and if the bus company refuses to work in those conditions they are punished. Drivers drive too fast for safety and if they refuse, the tour guide will yell at them and then call their boss, who will then call the driver to force him/her to speed. This is because they have the drivers driving sometime 550 miles in 1 day and 18 hours on a shift. They do this because they cramp too many attractions in their tours so that they make big money. Look up AM USA EXPRESS INC on the government website at http://www.safer.fmcsa.dot.gov/query.asp?searchtype=ANY&query_type=queryCarrierSnapshot&query_param=USDOT&original_query_param=NAME&query_string=1841321&original_query_string=AM%20USA%20EXPRESS%20INC . This bus company was doing a trip for LL Travel's biggest competitor who runs their company much like LL Travel. This bus flipped over in (2014) due to an overly worked exhausted driver who was too tired to drive. More than 20 people were severely hurt and few unfortunately died. This was in the news as well. L&L Travel runs these tours like a production line in a factory. Tour guides must produce, which means making attractions at all cost. Also when you get to the attraction after hours in the bus, you will get 15 minutes to enjoy yourself. Yep, 15 minutes. Like I said, it's like a production line. If you’re lucky you might get 30 minutes, and if you do be grateful. Be prepared to eat Chinese food the entire trip, and also be prepared to pay more for that dinner than anyone else who comes to the same restaurant to eat. This is because LL charges more for the dinner and then kicks back some of the money to the tour guide. In the beginning of your tour, your tour guide will tell you his/her "tips" is their only pay. THIS IS A LIE. They are making money on you, on every attraction, lunch, and dinner. They will SCAM you. This is only a fraction of what I know, if I were to tell it all on this post, it would be too long, I will save the details for authorities. Be prepared for your miserable unsafe humiliating trip.When you are done, you will feel used, abused, and angry. But it's okay, feel free to email me, at email@example.com. I will be getting people together with the same terrible experience that I have been through, and contacting the D.A's office where state prosecutors work. This link is to the news coverage of the recent fatal bus accident doing these type of tours. This bus was heading back to China town. http://6abc.com/news/2-women-dead-in-new-castle-co-tour-bus-crash/318157
We had a fantastic time. Luke was wonderful. So personable and creative in his unique style. Our pictures arrived 4 days later on Christmas day!!! They were just beautiful. Well worth the price. I actually think it's worth way more than what they charge. I would highly recommend anyone to do this. We used the photos as part of our engagement photos as we were engaged in Central park last year. What a memorable time. We learn something new every time we visit. I cannot say enough wonderful things about our experience.
A trip to NYC would not be complete without Central Park Tour. Spanning at least 50 blocks in length and several avenues in width it is the largest park in Manhattan. It is so big you can easily get lost in it.There are many things to see and do in Central Park. It has zoo, a children's playground, a chess and checkers house, ball field, and so much more.In Central Park near 72nd St West is a small tribute to the late John Lennon called Strawberry Fields. Located near the Dakota where he and his wife lived it is a small tribute to a great entertainer who's life was cut short.I find the bridges of Central Park very interesting. The most notable is the Gapstow bridge just slightly inside the southeast entrance. Maps can confuse you at times so make sure to stay on the beaten path if uncertain.You can walk up to see the famous museums along the "mile" It is a great place to get away from it all. My only other piece of advice is to take tour during daylight hours.
Our party of 6 (which included our 91 and 92 year old parents) took a 1 hour Pedi cab tour of Central Park. Our drivers were Timyr and Denis. Our 2 Pedi cabs stayed together the entire time. The tour was fun and informative and our guides were a delight. They drove safely and took us to many Central Park sights, describing what we saw as they peddled. They would stop at some of them so that we could get out, take pictures, and experience the sights close up. Timyrr and Denis even drove us to the Gershwin Theater for our matinee performance of Wicked after the tour at no extra charge! I would also like to thank Peter Pan who arranged the tour over the phone. He was very helpful and flexible. I am happy to recommend Peter Pan Tours of Central Park.
The tour goes south, up the middle, over to the east, around north, and back down the west side of the park. The two hours seemed to fly by and I was amazed how well run it was - there was plenty of picture time in all of the important spots, and a good amount of knowledge shared. Our tour guide was very laid back, answering all of our questions and even tailoring the tour to what we wanted by then end.
Me and my family took a tour to DC with L&L tours last week, pretty much sure they are the same company, and i had tons of fun. The tour cost me arround $76, and i paid arround $50 extra on the trip for food and some sight upgrade, so its actually 126 totally for 2 day's tour. Great tour guide and nice hotel.
This is one the worst bus tour i have ever been.To start with,the car park service they told us was horribly a wrong idea.the staff there was so rude.here is what he said...ok leave the car and u go...then i said what about the keys...he said what do u think i am here for..okay...then he said if u done hurry up and leave...There i was getting my bags and he was constantly telling me to leave...thats it for the car park...Coming to the tour,the travelling time was too long and the sightseeing time was too short..oh yes u have to give tips..i mean its compulsary..when we reached niagara falls,no breakfast not even time for breakfast.....oh man i cant stop complaining about this company..the only thing good about this company is the tour guide was at least trying to be very helpful..thats all..i just want other fellows to know about this before taking one of the tour..
