Creo que esta es una buena opción si tiene la certeza de contar con el tiempo suficiente para aprovechar las opciones que se ofrecen. Es una buena oportunidad para conocer esta grandiosa ciudad sin tener que pensar mucho los itinerarios.
La razón por la que no le doy una mejor calificación es únicamente por la falta de calidez y de interés de colaboración por parte de los colaboradores de la empresa del Hop-on Hop off tour: escasamente te miran a los ojos y dificilmente te dan información útil cuando te atreves a preguntarles. Algunos de los guías en vivo en los buses tampoco son los más serviciales.
we had 3 nights in new york and purchased a 3 day ticket before we went, it gave us access to Empire State Building 86th floor view point
which had great views over the city, also a short film in lift ceiling showing construction, Statue of Liberty on the Ferry and a stop at Ellis Island which was interesting you could spend a day on this trip,there was also a sight seeing ferry trip included, Museum of New York and Historical Museum, the Gray Line bus tours Uptown, Downtown, Brooklyn and a night tour, with plenty stops for viewing other attractions on routes with free entry, ChinaTown, Little Italy Rockafeller Centre, Central Park and Twin Towers Memorial which was very quiet and peaceful engraved with people, police and firemen you lost their life's helping others was very touching.
Good value for money John
We did this tour in January and LOVED it! we unfortunately didn't get to do everything our ticket allowed as we didn't have time but we used the day, hop on hop off tour, the ferry tour and the night tour and really enjoyed it all! the tour guides are so clued in and have amazing facts.
The Hop On Hop Off is a great way to get around the city and see everything. But, dont expect to be in a hurry! There are lots of cars in NYC and it takes time. With this ticket, you can do many things, but you have to go to the main office to redeem and get your scan coded receipts. So, give yourself time to do that. Our first bus had a personal tour guide who, using the microphone, gave us a great tour. Not all buses have that. Most buses have the recorded tour and hand out the earbuds when you get on. On our trip, the traffic was so bad, we couldnt keep up with the recording, so we didnt always know what they were pointing out. All in all, the only way to see the city!
Hop-on Hop-off Tour: Good trip, visiting all the main tourist attractions. The guides were knowledgeable. What was negative was the equipment, some of the busses had problems with the sound system.
Statue of Liberty tour: Excellent option
Empire State Observatory: Excellent value for the option!
This was good value for money, however the voucher code issued did not work and we spent a long time at the central office getting it sorted out.
Having said that the buses were plentiful and the tour guides were full of information. Good that you don't need to redeem everything within 3 days !
