The Ride Tours

55 reviews
Hop-on, hop-off bus tours are a popular option for seeing the sights in almost every major city. But The Ride in the Big Apple offers travelers a truly unique way to check out top landmarks and famous attractions by taking bus tours to a whole new level.

Floor-to-ceiling windows and glass top roofs provide 360-degree views of America’s most eclectic and energetic city on a 90-minute journey through the streets. The tour ventures through 10 neighborhoods and highlights 50 key spots including Radio City Music Hall, Times Square and Bryant Park. But what makes this tour truly unique is the bus’s coliseum-style seating and interactive surprise street theater that brings the best of New York City to life.

Travelers can choose from a single experience with The Ride, or opt for one of the popular combo packages, like those that include the Circle Line Cruise, Madame Tussaud’s or the Hard Rock Café.
