Excellent. Although we had to wait in line for a bit to get a bus in Time Square, it was well worth it. Our tour guide, Ira, was fantastic. Lots of knowledge of downtown tour. There was upstairs and downstairs seating. Lots of traffic on a Friday afternoon, but Ira managed to fill that time with lots of facts of NYC. We really enjoyed it.

So I did this tour with a friend on 08/07/2015.....enjoyed it so much that I bought 3 more tickets to do it on 08/10/2015 to do with my mom and sister. Enjoyed it just as much the second time around. I also love that you're able to get on and off of this tour bus. This is the BEST way to see NYC and clearly the most affordable option. Kudos to the crew for making this awesome tour option available for tourists!

Fun, informative, and although you may get on the same route, the different guides all have their own anecdotes to share with the passengers, their own points of interest to focus on along the way, and recommendations. Well worth the money!

A worthwhile way to see many different parts of New York both uptown and downtown. Value for money as the guide was very knowlegable and iwas fun. She spoke about some interesting places to eat as we passed by. We tried a couple and were not disappointed.

Trip was excellent. Our Uptown Guide was great and her I think her name was Diana background information was so extensive it added to the trip.
Only compliant is HARD SEATS!!!! for the long trip.
But thank you, as native New Yorkers not NYC we always wanted to do one every time we saw the buses, and now we finally did it.

great tour, I've been on tours like this before and sometimes the guides are a little too sarcastic, or they aren't too accurate, or they are just dull, but our guide was really good, friendly, just funny enough, and his information was interesting.

Tour was amazing. We saw and do a lot. Wish I would have gotten the two day since there is just so much to do in New York. Would definitely recommend it to anyone. People complaining about their tour guy on the bus is nonsense, they just have to get off and get on the next bus that comes by.

Sunday 21st June did the trip late morning and we seemed to pick a good time traffic wise. We had an outstanding tour guide called Tim and he made the whole trip excellent. Rattled off fact after fact and balanced that with a bit of humour. We did the North blue route as we were in the south for our other planned trips so wanted to see the northern section of the city. The trip included Harlem which was fascinating. Thank you guys great experience and thank you Tim.

This was great!! My only complaint was that there was a detour on one of our days that eliminated the Rockefeller Center stop altogether. This is apparently common on weekend due to Rock Ctr being on the parade route. This wasn't communicated to us and we stood at that stop for about 30 minutes before I finally called their office. We had to walk a good ways to reconnect with the bus line. Otherwise, it was an easy way to get around and get a make your own agenda!
