“New York See It All Tour - exactly what it says on the tin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2012

With only a few days in New York it would have been impossible for us to visit everything covered on this tour. We opted for the See It All tour which incorporated an hour's harbour cruise which afforded us the opportunity to photograph the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Our tour guide on the bus, Bernice, was both entertaining and informative, and her personal insight when we visited the 911 memorial site made it very special for us. The tour made it easier for us to choose which tourist attractions we would like to revisit. All in all, a great day out.

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

My cousin and I recently visited NYC. We wanted a tour that was informative and did not want to 'hop on...hop off' because we didn't know when to hop on or hop off. Our hotel suggested The NY See it All Tour with OnBoard Tours. We could not have asked for a better tour guide (Michael J). It was very obvious that the man loved his job and had quite a bit of knowlege about the city and its attractions. I am confident that we got the best tour that money can buy in NYC and highly recommend it. Michael got off the bus with us at every stop and went 'above and beyond'. You cannot go wrong with OnBoard Tours and Michael J as your tour guide.

“Really good - very interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2012

So we did this tour on the 18th of April this year and generally had a really good time. We took the Premium tour which was $125 so quite expensive. There were only six people on the bus, including two of us and we had a great and knowledgeable guide in Tom who told us some really interesting facts about the city. The tour itself was good - but be aware that you may only glimpse some of the key sights as opposed to going to actually see them or visiting them in any formal capacity.

So - why no five stars? The main drawbacks were twofold; the cost is quite expensive and also there is no sign or any indication of where the tour picks up. You could quite easily miss this and it is very difficult to understand if you are in the correct place or not.
