A must for everyone visiting NYC

Peter G

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2016

We only went on the bus once during the four days because of choosing taxi, subway and walking a lot. The guide was very enthusiastic and educated. The trip to the Worlds biggest outlet was great. Six hours of shopping at great prices. Empire State Building at night is magical.

Thoroughly enjoyable trips on the Uptown and Downtown tours. On top of the bus freezing but well wrapped up - our guides were very knowledgeable and made the experiences more interesting.

This tour was excellent. We even upgraded to a VIP pass because the person who gave us our ticket was really nice and friendly. He deserves a commendation but unfortunately, i was not able to get his name. This is really worth getting before a trip. Thanks a lot Viator!!!

Just love the hop on bus tours. We paid the extra dollars for the VIP Passes which were good. First in line and no queuing at Hard a Rock a Cafe. Only disappointment was our guide on the Bronx tour as she didn't speak very good English.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2014

The boat tour was fantastic and when there they let us choose Empire State or RF centre. Woodbury common was great and bus was great. The bus tour was good too just avoid the busses with a cover over the front as it's hard to see through but generally very enjoyable.

This is a great way to get around.We found all the guides really helpful and informative.Would definitely
recommend this tour to anyone wanting to see everything.The Woodbury Common tour was great as there are so many departure and return times. The buses are very frequent, we didn't wait more than 10 mins. for any bus.Would definitely buy again. Thank you City Sites .

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2013

Excellent trip. Guides very informative. Paid extra $25/person for the VIP passes which allowed us to skip the queues at the busiest stops and also to use the "Gray Line" tour busses as well. Uses mos tof the Tours, some more than once and enjoyed the harbour cruise, shopping and Top of the Rock (although the queue was quite long for Top of the Rock, as it was after dark). Would thoroughly recommend this as a way to see New York.
