Really glad we bought the VIP package on this. We litterally were in NY for 48 hours and we did 3 tours on this and used it to get us to Empire State building. Excellent value for money and some very entertaining tour guides!
It was a really great experience and the first time for my grand-daughter, who lovedddddddddddd it :-)
Very much worth the money. A great way of seeing New York and seeing parts you may not have thought about going to. We went on our first bus on the first afternoon we arrived there and it helped us get our bearings a little as well. The only problem really is that it is so busy the tour can take a very long time as it is constantly having to stop for traffic lights or traffic jams.
The best way to get to now the city. Real New Yorker talking about their own hometown while driving around. I liked it, a lot and it brings you to almost every place in the city. The busses arrive every 5/10 minutes so you don't have to wait long! I would recommend this to everybody !
We had two day hop on and off bus tour. Very good and highly recommend. Unfortunately on day one we had two other things planned, and were unable to take full value of this. The staff were all very knowledgeable and provide a wealth of information that was valuable. I would recommend if book two day tour that you use two days just for the tours.....The night tour was the highlight and views exceptional.No issues with booking and presenting voucher. Exceptional
Very convenient with good explanations by tour guides. Will do again and have highly
suggested it to friends. Our second day was not great as it was rainy and cold, but still informative.
Very useful way to see a city. We do this wherever we go.
Had a very entertaining guide on Brooklyn tour especially.
Definitely, worth it. This included 3 attractions, which were the bomb.
Used the bus over 3 days and each time we learnt something new about the same buildings/areas.
We found the hop on hop off bus a great way to get to know the city and find out where the main things were--unfortunately we were in town during the U.N. summit and road closures for visiting dignitaries and protest marches meant the bus was not always able to go where it was meant to--watch out for the last week in September as this is, apparently, an annual event and the streets are pretty chaotic. The night bus tour was great--you have to see Times Square at night to get a real idea of what it looks like--it can be a bit chillly up there though- so take something warm to wear.
All our bookings worked very well and we had no problems anywhere.
Great tour! Loved the actual tour guides and not automated ones. My first tour was downtown tour on the 8th October. Nice Jamaican tour guide very funny and informative. My next one was on the 9th, the night time tour and the guide's name is Debra. I love her shes so smart and funny and such a joy
Great way of seeing New York - tour guide was very informative and funny!
Excellent way to get around this vast city - so easy to get to the places within the various loops - tour guides very informative - make sure you tip as they EXPECT one!!!
Was fantastic. The bus system made it possible to enjoy multiple areas of the city on the same day. I look forward to coming back to New York real soon.
A great way to see the sights of NYC and surrounding areas, and we did it all over 72 hours. Each guide has their own stories of New York city, some fascinating stories which really brought to light the history of NYC. I would highly recommend
Everything was perfect. All the tour guides were awesome.
The line for the downtown tour was a bit long but everything went great.
The hop on hop off bus is always the way to go!!! So much to see and hear from different people on each section. Very good.
Loved all our tour guides. So full of information and interesting facts about the city. I would highly recommend this when visiting NYC.
You really could not do new York without using this service. Especially with its information staff. They are polite, funny and very knowledgeable of all routes. We did all three trips and it was highly recommended to all
Excellent way to see the sights as long as you can sit on the top level. The bus tour guides were all excellent and kept the tour interesting.
Excellent for exploring the city. Actually this may be the only way you can relax and see the city. I got the Freestyle package which includes entrance to 3 attractions. One of the things I recommend is take the ferry trip to Liberty and Ellis - the view is spectacular especially at sunset. The Night tour is also impressive. Manhattan is a very very crowded place this is why this hop-on hop-of tour is not appropriate if you just want to get around. There may be the case that you have to skip one or two buses because they are too crowded to get on or get stuck in traffic for half an hour. This is no one's fault , it is just the way it is. So, take some patience with you when going to NY.
Not a lot can go wrong with this tour. Guides were very knowledgable and despite some of the worst traffic ever, made it interesting.
We really loved the Hop on Hop off bus tours. We located the bus office really easily and collected our tickets. We never had to wait for very long to catch a bus and once on board, everyone one of the tour guides was really friendly and very informative, constantly keeping us updated on what we were driving by, and including some very funny little stories. We caught the night time tour which was fantastic. Great views of the Manhattan skyline at night. We would definitely use these again on our next visit.
