Good tour. Guide was entertaining. Luckily we sat in the outside portion of the upper deck as visibility was bad for the folks under the canopy.
A great tour. Very very cold though, but went equiped for this. Unfortunately if you sit under the bubble upstairs it is very scratched and it is impossible to get good photos under it. My daughter braved the cold and sat outside of the bubble at the back to get her photos but was absolutely frozen by the end of the tour. A good guide tho with lots of (sometimes useless) information. On the whole I'm glad I done it and would recommend it to anyone thinking of doing it.
it is a good tour. The guide was great. The only complaint is that the bus roof area was partially covered, which is OK with the weather. but the covered portion was really scratched so the view was not good if you were sitting there. Overall a great experience for the family
Enjoyable tour was actually only 1 and half hours. Knowledgable guidee. Shame the plastic roof and windows are so badly scratched does spoil the view somewhat.
We enjoyed this tour. It was very cold but we got an excellent tour of the city.
very good tour would of liked to gone over brookylin bridge to be able to see new york skyline in the dark... Plus not many chances to get photos as the bus had a roof on it and it never stopped... but overal still a good tour..
The trip was great. It was not exactly what I had in mind but overall it was great. I had expected to see more Christmas lights than a sight-seeing tour but considering I had walked all of what we saw on the but it was nice to sit and actually be able to view it and not be in a hurry. I would reccommend the tour to someone who has not been to NYC before; however, I do not think I would take the trip again. All in all it was a fantastic time and everyone had a good time.
Well narrated tour with knowledgeable friendly guide. Unfortunately we had seen most of the sights on foot but it was nice to be able to sit and take photos. All staff were pleasant and helpful
Although it was cold I enjoyed the trip and we were fully informed at all times by the tour guide. As this tour was aimed at Christmas I would recommend that people planning to visit at the end of this year must book early and dress warmly and enjoy.
It was freezing the evening we went on the tour however the tour guide "kept his cool"!! Impossible to take photos through the scratched perspex which was dissapointing.
It was a great experience although the bus was travelling a bit too fast for my taste. Also, it's hard to take pictures at night because of the lack of light; the flash was making the lighting pretty bad. It is definitely worth doing the trip for this though. Good time spent at night.
We were disappointed that there was not more Christmas lights and the bus passed some of the spectacular sights so quickly that we just had a glimpse. Our tour guide was excellent and very entertaining.
Very disappointed. Picked up ticket from depot, girl asked which trip ticket was for and directed us across the street to board bus. Her times did not match service, had to wait about 40 minutes. When we went to board the bus for the holiday lights tour, the man told us that the lights had been taken down. Not a lot we could do as we bought tickets online. Would have been nice, if she had of informed us, before we left depot, or offered something else. Tour was great, but weather very cold to see on a open top bus.
We saw all the major sights in New York, which was very beautiful this time of year. The only downside was that it was too cold to sit up stairs (it was winter, of course).
The weather was terrible, but the tour was great. I don't recommend doing this is the pouring ran as we did, but it would be fantastic if dry! Of course the weather was no fault of the tour.
We were let down a bit by the weather, but otherwise a brilliant city lights tour!
Beautiful lights, very good value for money. It leaves you feeling very 'Christmassy'.
Not the best as bus has a plastic roof that is so scratched you can barely see through it and as it was winter very cold if you sat outside the roof on top, saw more of the lights walking around afterwards.
This was good however it was absolutely freezing on top of the double decker bus, maybe if a blanket or something was offered. The lights were good although I thought it was going to be slightly different and see more lights but still a nice night.
