Took my two daughters for their 18th and 21st to New York. Have used hop on / hop off buses in Paris and find them excellent. It's a great informative, quick way of getting around and helps you cover so much more in a relaxing manner. Buses are so regular you never wait longer than 10 mins, sometimes two buses as once so space is never a problem. The addition of the river cruise was amazing value for money. Information Centre just round the corner from 1st bus stop so no traipsing around looking for it. Tour Guides were superb. Would and have recommended to family and friends. Made an amazing trip even more amazing!!!
I would recommend this tour both for the photographic opportunities and the highly entertainning knowledge of the tour guides.Very well done; no complaints!
Great way to see round the city to know where you want to go bank to again. The harbour tour was a different way to see NYC and our tour guide was brilliant - very funny. Personally think seeing Statue of Liberty is best experienced from the boat rather than queuing up for an hour or more to look out from the statue. We took a night tour down to China town, Brooklyn areas and got great sunsets with that fab skyline.
Best way of getting around New York, uptown and downtown and Brooklyn, they even extended our two days to three for free, also the commentary was helpful.
We used this service for 48 hours during our stay in NY. While it my be possible to use the subway not every tourist location is handy for a subway station and using the bus means you get to see a lot more of NY daily life on the streets. While we were there it was very hot and sunny which can be an issue if you are on the upper deck and not covered up. Always remember to take a hat or something similar to cover your head unless you want to get really burnt. The streets of NY can get very busy during rush hours, remember this will signifcantly increase the time it takes to get from stop to stop. Build these delays into your schedule if you need to be somewhere specific at a particular time.
The guides on the buses are very informative and rely on tips for a large part of their salary, remember you will see several different guides during each day as you change buses, it can add up considerably if you tip each one.
We use the Hop On Ho Off buses in every major city we visit, this was well worh the cost of the ticket.
A fantastic experience 2 days of hopping on and off was great and the boat trip is well worth it we saw all of New York in 2 days getting off wherever we wanted
I was raised in NEW York and moved to the Caribbean many years ago and wanted to show a good friend my former home. I know the city well, but wanted a comfortable way for her to see the city. She was thrilled and I enjoyed the oportunity of showing her the city I love. The guides were also excellent. We will certainly do this again.
Very enjoyable! This is a great way to see the city and then revisit sights later.
This was the second time I visited NY and would highly recommend Viator hop on hop off tours. We took all tours except the night time and was very impressed with the knowledgeable and professional guides. The busses came frequently and were clean and comfortable. The transfer points between tours were a bit confusing at first and would advise getting clarity on this at the check in.
We had so much fun on these tours. There were four of us and we all had the 48 hour pass. We took advantage of the harbor cruise, the uptown tour, downtown tour and night tour. It is a fun way to see the city and a great value. It's the only way to go!
