This is a great way to get acquainted with the sights of the city at night! Kat was the tour guide and told a lot of good jokes and had interesting stories about the city and its architecture. I did this on my second night of 3 in the city and thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the top deck. You get provided with earphones that work well, as you certainly need them to hear your guide above the rumble of the city traffic!

tour guide was great!!!!!! knowledgable and personable. there were some folks in the back causing a ruckus and she was super polite and got them to stop. we had already done a LOT of walking so it was nice to ride around and see parts of NYC we hadn't seen yet.

I loved this tour! It was a great way to see NYC at night, especially the lights during Christmas time. I decided to book this tour because I was arriving on a Sunday and only wanted to go on a short tour of the city before calling it a night. This was the perfect 2-hour tour for that. I liked the fact that we had headphones so we could hear the tour guide explain everything that we were seeing. We saw Times Square, Rockefeller Plaza, the Brooklyn Bridge, etc. - so many places! The only drawback was that it was very cold since it was wintertimeThe double decker bus was only half closed on the top. So just be sure to bundle up when you go. You won't regret it! :-

Other than the fact that it was a cold winter's night and we were freezing, the views from the top of the bus were outstanding. I would do this tour again, but would remember to bring my long underwear and a nice wool blanket for my lap.

Breath taking night scenic view of New York city skyscrapers from Manhattan bridge. This is worth just for that one moment. 2 hrs full tour of the city,there is nothing more you could expect. Have it in your things to do list when you are going to NY.
