The first bus tour guide didn't talk, she just let the recording do all the work. We hopped another bus and the tour guide was funny, informative, and enthusiastic. Regardless, it was a great "quickie" tour for anyone who doesn't have much time to visit the city.
Very good value, we got the 72 hour ticket which came with a discount card for some eating places which was useful, a good way to see the sights and get a good bearing of what New York has to offer. Good tour guides, some used the mic and bus speaker system which was better, but with some you had to use the free headphones. Could just do with some better organising when having to board the bus at some popular locations.
It's the perfect way to see New York. The guides were all very knowledgeable. Wait times to get on the bus were minimal. Employees of the tour company were at all of the main stops to assist us with any questions or directions. Definitely a must do.
Very friendly tour guides! Lots of fun, we saw most of Manhattan in one day!
The service was great. The quality all depended on your tour guide.
Some were awesome and some more just plain annoying.
Well worth the price though. I would highly recommend that two day tour.
The 3 day hop on hop off was perfect. we saw everything we wanted to see. We would do it again! The night tour guides were the most knowledgeable. I learned more on that 3 days than I did the 6 years I lived there!
The buses were readily available and the tour guides were well informed. This was a great way to cover a lot of ground in a reasonable amount of time. You can get an overview of the city and then decide what interests you enough to go back and explore in more depth.
Really enjoyed our trip to New York. We had a voucher for three days from viator, which included the hop on and hop off buses. The buses were really good, we managed to pack a lot of sightseeing into three days. The tour guides on the buses were good fun, particularly one elderly lady who had us laughing through the journey.I would advise anyone to use the buses, you do have to wait sometimes, but not too long, its just part of the New York experience ! We used the vouchers to transfer to and from our hotel ,they were good value.
Some of the tour guides are good and some are very bad and rude. If you are on the bus with abad one...just get off and wait the 5 minutes until another bus comes! They are all very, very close and we never had to wait long. The knowledge that some of the guides have is amazing! I would recommend!
This is the best way to spend first days in New York - to see all major attractions by bus and then to make a plan what to see more in detail.
My experience was great.. guides were fantastic- really presented New York in its best.. giving us even little tips, advices, suggestions where to go, what to see, how to do things in this great city.
I`m glad I did this tours and they turned even better I expected. If you are first time in New York this is a must do!
All in all - excellent!
Great tour guides and well planned routes. We didn't have enough time to do everything but would definitely use again.
My only compliant would be the service at the ticket office, not very friendly.
Great way to see the sights, loads of options on this tour and very knowledgable guides, definatley worth doing the 2 day pass!
A great way to see the city and learn about its history. The guides were really friendly and helpful and a couple if them were really funny too!
fantastic time the guide on 509 was exellent with plenty of information would recommend
We only had one day in New York, obviously impossible to see very much. But this was certainly the best way to see as much as possible in a short time. It have us a sense of the busyness, bustle, size and scope of New York. The guides were excellent although there was one older woman who was a) very bossy and b) difficult to understand. But all the others were absolutely fantastic. I would thoroughly recommend this tour.
I thought the tours were great. We especially enjoyed the night tour. The speaker guides were very knowledgable and personable. We enjoyed the entire experience. Thank you for affording me the opportunity to express our gratitude.
This was by far the best way to see New York! Wherever you want to go there is a big red bus waiting to take you there.
This was excellent and would recommend this tour to anyone I knew coming to New York
We will definitely look for Viator whenever we travel. It was easy to access. And, the very informative guides were also entertaining. We felt that we saw all the site and learned so much about the city. The option to get off let us walk across the Brooklyn bridge and read all the plaques at Battery Park and take pictures with the Bull on Wall Street- just to name a few. We took all the tours that were offered. I truly feel we got the full New York vacation.
Despite the cold, we did three loops Uptown, Downtown and Brooklyn. Each was equally good with friendly informative guides. Once again we booked the freestyle ticket in advance and took advantage of the entrance tickets to Top of The Rock and Radio City Music Hall backstage tour which were well worth it!
Used it a lot-a major part of our holiday.Great guides except once when he didn't say this is Greenwich Village stop and we were unawhere until the next stop and missed it!! Other than that -Great.
Great a must do while visiting the city
Best way to see every part of the city
