New York City Bus Tours

By Viator, May 2015

5 1 Review | Add your review

New York City is the largest city in the United States and boasts one of the largest metropolitan areas in the world. The highlights are endless and you could easily fill a few days with museum visits, theater shows, sightseeing and shopping. 

One of the best ways to get a feel for the city known as the “Big Apple” is to take a bus tour, which allows you to see the highlights in a short amount of time, without worrying about negotiating public transit on your own, or putting in hours of walking on the streets of New York.

There are dozens of different bus tours to choose from, including those that focus on particular areas of the city, or particular themes, like architecture or even your favorite TV shows.

One of the most popular options is a Hop-on, Hop-Off Tour. This flexible bus tour allows you to create your own itinerary while tour guides on-board inform and entertain you between stops. Riding on a double-decker bus, you won’t be fighting crowds in the subway to get from one site to the next and you’ll enjoy unobstructed views of many the city’s major attractions. With 50 possible stops, you can see as much or as little as you choose – and save your energy to enjoy the vibrant nightlife in the city that never sleeps! Tickets range from a basic 24-hour pass covering lower Manhattan to a 72-hour ticket that includes Harlem, Brooklyn and even a night tour. Other ticket options include cruises, attractions, meals or museums, such as the Empire State Building and the unique Guggenheim Museum.

For something a little more structured, consider a full day guided coach tour of the city. Over eight hours, enthusiastic guides will lead the way as an air-conditioned coach shuttles you from one major landmark to the next, including Times Square, the World Trade Center Site, Central Park and Rockefeller Center.

More specialized tours include a tour of New York TV and movie sites or a tour of Manhattan neighborhoods, including Chinatown, Little Italy and the historic South Street Seaport.
