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.

I was concerned about this tour based on reviews that I read. Apparently the majority of the persons that post reviews are those that are unhappy which, in my case made be skeptical.
The tour was very good. I was happy we did the night tour as there was less noise and traffic in some areas but much more activity in the Times Square area. We got to see downtown, Chinatown, part of uptown, some of little Italy, times square, Brooklyn.

We had considered the hop-on hop-off tours for our sightseeing during the day but elected only to do the night tour. The result was we did a lot of walking. I suggest if you want to see a large part of NYC without doing a lot of walking we averaged 5-6 miles/day then use the hop-on hop-off. If you like to walk you will see more but without any guide but take the night tour to give you the experience of seeing things from 20 feet up from the road.

I've been going to NY a few times a year since I was 9, into Port Authority. As an adult I drove in to the hotel and parked the car. This is the first time I've been able to tour the city without having to worry about taxi drivers and pedestrians. It was fantastic to do this very complete tour of lower Manhattan at sunset, as the tour crosses the East River into Brooklyn on the Manhattan Bridge. Loved it! Note to self to all people who take hundreds of photos...follow the very clear instructions and DON'T STAND UP. Most of the seats are on top of the bus for maximum viewing. One guy was almost decapitated maybe an exaggeration, but he came close! Also, when they say there are no bathroom breaks, it's not a joke. One passenger apparently chose poorly on his pre-tour meal. He ended up having to get off the bus on a corner in the middle of Brooklyn. Not his fault, but also not the driver's fault. Earbuds: the tour guide uses a microphone that goes through headsets rather than a speaker. They provide the earbuds, but if you prefer your own, it's not a bad idea to bring them.
