We found this way of seeing the City was wonderful - even with slow traffic conditions. We loved both of our guides - especially Allen.

The tour routes are good, the experience could be so much better, in stead of printing out a mile long receipt, they should put it on a card that you should use to get on the bus and attractions. Instead you get a mile long reciept. Some of the tour guides were poor, one who was reading of a phone... More

This was a great way to explore new York and the tour guides are fab and very knowledgable of the city. We spent from 9 am to 8 pm touring. The stops are plentiful and the maps are useful. We could have also done a ferry ride too. A must to do activity.

We scheduled both tours for the same day. We did the uptown tour in the morning, and the tour guide was Jerry, and he was great. The information was clear, and he added some good humor. Unfortunately for some others that the audio commentary in other languages wasnt working, but we didnt need that. So we would rate that tour... More

If you're only in town for a short time, the Gray Line Buses are a great way to see it all... sort of. Obviously, if you stay on the bus the whole time, which would be fastest, you're only glimpsing what the city has to offer. But it's the perfect way to get the lay of the land and make... More

We paid for the uptown and downtown bus tour on February 16, 2017. The uptown bus tour was ok. The downtown bus tour was less than an acceptable experience. It was a 10 minute walk to our next stop so we decided to wait on the bus (since they say they come every 20 minutes anyways) and we waited 40... More

We were in New York to celebrate Valentine's Day weekend with some friends and decided to take a bus tour of downtown Manhattan, since we have been to the city multiple times, but have never taken one before. Our tour guide, Allan France made the experience a memorable one from start to finish! He was enthusiastic, humorous, and very knowledgable... More

Lots of problems with earphones working throughout the whole bus. Finally said they had to change buses and everyone had to get off at 911 memorial or Staten Island.

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.
