Good tour

The bus tour was okay to see the sights but went by some too fast and hard to hear on the earphones. The ferry ride and Empire state Building were great!

While the terrible state of the cover made it impossible to take clear pictures our tour guide Deborah. Blau made it worthwhile. She answered our questions and since the bus was full she reduced the number of stops by asking if anyone was getting off at the next planned stop. She also helped ease the anxiety of passengers worried about... More

My 10-year-old son has been wanting to ride a double-decker bus so this was a big treat for him and a great way for us to see parts of NYC that we would not have otherwise seen. The guides were enthusiastic about sharing their wealth of knowledge. We had so much fun and absolutely recommend it!

We completed two full circles - uptown and downtown. It was a little cool in November - but well worth the trip and so glad we sat upstairs. Can't see much from downstairs, but upstairs - you can see it all and they did a great tour!

Wonderful tour! Tony, our host, was both entertaining and very informative. The ship was comfortable, the food/drink service outstanding, and the overall experience the apex of our journey to New York City. Well done!

This was sold to us as a loop tour, having previously been to New York and used a similar service we thought this would be the best way to see the city. All the buses we caught never actually did a loop, so you could never get back to where you started. Although they handed headphones out, 2 out of... More

Definitely the best way to see NYC highlights. This was easy, informative and the frequency of the buses was great. I had a 48 hour pass and ended up getting another one!

Whilst staying in NYC we took the one day tour that includes Philadelphia and Amish Country. An early start at 0700 meant that we were outside Independence Hall at 0900 and started by visiting the Liberty Bell Center before a Ranger tour of the Hall. After a refreshment break we visited on foot a number of the City historic features... More

We paid for the 48 hour ticket and got all 5 tours (Uptown, Downtown, Brooklyn, Bronx and Night) included as well as the ferry tour (which goes right around the Statue of Liberty) for free with a bit of haggling. Was well worth the money we paid as we got to see as much of the sights as possible without... More

Waited for busses in long lines and bus after bus had no room. Asked for refund and told no even though we never used tickets. Walked multiple blocks to find available bus. First female guide was good. Arrived at 911 museum and told tickets didn't work there. That was the one place we told the sales person we wanted. Second... 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.
