Long overdue writing this review, we visited NYC mid October and wouldn't have seen or enjoyed half the sights without the hop on tour. We took 2 days including the boat and night tour. Su and Shiaka hit exactly the right tone and were very knowledgeable and happy in their work. Loved Su asking people to put their phones away... More

Apologies, i am long overdue reviewing this! Decided to take my mother in law and nephew to NY to see the Rockerfeller Tree and all in all Christmasness. When travelling i always aim to do the hop on hop off sightseeing tours as they are far and away the best way to see the city. With the NY sightseeing bus... More

We had the Best Time Ever in NYC with the Hop On Hop Off Free Style with different tour / activity options . We had this through Viator. The tour guides were informative courteous and caring for all passengers. The tour Guide Chacka was very passionate and funny. And there was another great guide born in Manhattan who was very...

I was in New York on business for 2 days, hence this was ideal to get a feel of the city. The route was very good - although the bus can get very full really quick. The one thing that let it down is that when I hopped on at one of the locations, the bus was fairly empty, hence... More

They say that staff are the real differentiators and make an organisation, Su Wu is an example of a superb employee and really delivers a top quality tour service. Once we met her our decision was made on the tour company, no competition. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and cannot wait to return!!!

Alan France was our guide. A great tour (and tour guide) but we learned at the last minute that we had to change buses half way through the tour. But the instructions as to where to find the next bus weren't clear so many of us couldn't find it and abandoned the trip. So honestly felt I didn't get my... More

This is a great way to see the sights and hear some of the history/famous sights in movies etc. We had a brilliant tour guide Leon - we actually got him on quite a few of our journeys and he always made people laugh and join in the conversation, even when we were all freezing on the top deck! He... More

I went on the City Sightseeing tour in NYC in May. Although it's really meant to be a great tour, what will slow you down is the fact that any of these bus tours are just not equipped to handle the massive crowds of tourist that come to NYC. Depending on when you go, you may have to wait for... More

Hoped to be able to just "hop on hop off" but that is a lot harder than it seems. the buses don't really have set running times and waiting times vary a lot. On 2 occasions we were unable to find stops, but more of an issue is that in some of the busier areas we had to wait for... 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.
