We decided to make the most of the tours and did a few, being winter they didn't mind us using it over three days (we bought it the day before we used it from 3pm Tuesday to 3pm Thursday but they were quite lenient). The tours themselves were good and informative. Downtown - stuck in traffic but good tour guide,... More

So the geniuses decided to wrap the tour bus with advertising to make extra money. Completely ignoring the fact that this way the tourists cannot see anything outside. UNBELIEVABLE.

We bough 72 hour hop on hop off tickets coupled with a 4 attraction ticket - you could choose your attractions - along with a free ferry trip. Great value for money and a good way to see lots. Only downside was the bus was stuck in traffic quite a bit

We grabbed a set of headphones and off we went. Pretty... More

These are a must for first time visitors to New York. They are well managed and the information provided is excellent. The only thing you need to note is that if you buy a New York Pass this Hop on Hop off buses must be used in a 48 period from the time you first hop on the bus. Uptown... More

Both times the tour guides on the bus were terrible, telling strange... More

Elizabeth, your experience sounds infuriating. We regret we fell short of your expectations. Providing a few more details would really help us get to the bottom of the apparently invalid tickets you were sold. How did the ferry ride prove to be bogus? If someone is selling our products under false pretenses or fake vouchers under our company name, we... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
