Very nice and clean lounge. You will be served at your seat, drinks are very good, food is good. If you're looking for a longer stay and some rest at the airport - ideal! However, you can only enter the lounge exactly 3 hours before departure. Toilets were ok - could be a little cleaner.

It was a great trip. Beautiful view of the skyline. The moon was gorgeous. Great stop at the Statue of Liberty for photos. DJ was great but a little loud. Food was well cooked and seasoned, standard American fare served buffet style. Overall a good value for all you get.

The tour was a lot of fun. It was a small group. Felt like going out with friends, having a amazing time and learning about History. I highly recommend the tour, the guide was great, very knowledgeable and nice. And the bars you visit are glorious. Thank you,
