We read the reviews on TripAdvisor and were ready to see the City via an exceptional opportunity to, well yes, to get on and off the bus. It didn't turn out that way. The day was overcast and a light misty drizzle fell intermittently. There...More

Still the mist economical way to get your bearings and the feel for a City. We generally do a full lap before deciding where we want to visit further that day or on others

First of all, there is no good way to get around in NYC. There are taxis, buses, private tours, and the subway. That said, the Grayline bus tours are one of a handful of hop-on hop-off bus tours. I don't know how it compares to...More

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

Can anyone tell me how long each tour takes roughly? There's Brooklyn, Uptown, Downtown and Bronx. Thank you!

uptown loop is 2 hours , down town 2/1/2 hrs depends on traffic and security closures, for the Bronx tour 1/1/2 hrs you have to take the bus from mid town , ask the driver or the guy at the stop they are very helpful,
Where is the Park Central – 54th St. & 7th Ave stop? I was looking for a stop near the residence inn/courtyard near there, but the stop doesn't look to have any signage that I can see on Google Street View. There's a stop on the end of one of the next blocks (53 or 52nd I think) that has a sign that says "tour- grey line/ny sightseeing)"- is this the Park Central stop?
