3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review
Great introduction to the city. Suggest you do the full 2 hour loop tour when you first arrive, then you can decide where you want to explore in more depth. A 3 day pass sounds a good idea, but in reality you are unlikely to get the maximum usage out of this because the bus only picks up from each stop every 2 hours. For us this meant a lot of hanging about between attractions. A timetable would have been useful at the time of booking, then we could have planned our itinerary better. We only received the timetable once we got on the bus. The bus stops do not have timetables at them either, the only information you receive is where the bus tour starts and at what time. This makes it difficult to join it en route, as you do not know what time it gets to the various stops, and if you miss it, there is a 2 hour wait for the next one. Be wary as well of the bus stops. In the off season the route is different, and the bus does not stop at all the marked stops.

My Review
Absolutely brilliant! Tour guide was witty, interesting, informative, and entertaining. How he managed to remember all the facts and figures he reeled off to us I don't know. For first time visitors to NYC you could not have seen more in 5 and a half hours if you tried! It would be easier to list what we did not see than what we did. Plenty of stop offs and tons of excellent photo opportunities of all the main attractions. Included a half hour lunch stop by the river, so don't bother taking packed lunch as there were plenty of cheap eating places. Staten Island ferry trip enables you to get excellent pics of Statue of Liberty. Was a bit dubious about booking this online before we went, but am glad now that I did, as it was certainly cheaper than a lot of similar tours on offer there. I would most definitely use Viator again. Couldn't fault the whole experience.
