The Ride, Holiday Edition

We took this on 2nd December and would totally recommend to anyone. Brilliantly orchestrated, entertaining and in Julie and Noele 2 fantastic hosts. We took this when it was dark and for us it seemed so much better with the New York Christmas lights.

I would say no, the two rows of window seats are set side on next to one another, there could be room at the end I missed, but a large step onto the bus would kind of say not.
