This tour was amazing!

Nous avons passé un très bon moment, mon fils de 11 ans et moi-même.
Tout s'est déroulé avec fluidité, le contrôle, l'accueil courtois. Vous avez même quelqu'un pour vous aider à mettre votre sac à dos dans le casier.
Etant arrivés en avance, nous avons même pu prendre notre vol un peu plus tôt.
Il faut confirmer avant le vol. Comme mon anglais est moyen à l'oral, j'ai opté pour le mail. Ils m'ont répondu aussitôt. Voyant que la météo était douteuse pour ma date initiale j'ai pu reporter d'une journée sans problème.
Le temps était magnifique ce vendredi 25 avril 2015.
On s'approche de très près de la statue et on tourne autour afin que ceux assis à droite comme ceux assis à gauche puissent bien la voir.
Notre tour était celui de 18 minutes qui va jusqu'au Yankee stadium et c'était franchement parfait.
La plus jolie dame a eu droit à la place assise près du pilote hasard???
et l'audioguide était en Italien et anglais car cette jolie dame était italienne, ce qui a fortement influencé le choix du pilote même si dans l'avion, deux français et deux allemands étaient aussi du voyage !!
A part ce petit bémol, c'est un très bon souvenir que nous garderons de ce vol.
