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!
Two days spent h/h'ing in order to see as much of NY as possible. Unfortunately we didn't have any time to visit the Museum - next time definately! Excellent tour guides - including the night time tour and the boat ride Ellis/Statue of Liberty. YES, we'll use you again, next time we're in NY.
Great Commentry and it was a great way to see everything, did all the loops - totally recommend the 48 hour tour.
Four of us took the trip. Great value for money but you do need to plan ahead to maximise the trips. The boat trip was awesome and the guide Debbie on the Uptown/Harlem tour was wonderful, so knowladgeable and careing. There is some duplication between Brooklyn and night tours but otherwise all great. Loved the fact that the tickets were not live until presented at office, as it was raining on our first day so we were able to defer our plans. Beware long queues at office so go early
