Excellent, fun and informative

Family of four took the tour and it was far better the hop on hop off tours available. With comfortable indoor seating and wide side and roof windows the ride is very pleasant, especially on a cold w8nter day. The guide/navigator was very knowledgeable, as...More

Great location, but not worth the price.

This is a 75-minute view of downtown NYC. The tour guide was good, but seating can be cramped if one is wide or tall. I am not that tall (5'6") and sitting in the third row was quite uncomfortable. My knee was right up against...More

You took THE TOUR which is not a view of Downtown NYC but a view of Midtown and Upper West in Manhattan. At 5'6" tall you should not have had an issue with seating on the bus but thank you for your feedback.

Included in City Pass, but offering too few seats

The bus is great, and the guide Jim(if I remember his name correctly) is funny and gave very informative information. I like the part that he taught us how to tell locals from tourists. Besides he really made fully use of the multimedia technology and...More

You cant compare us to a double deck bus that is strictly doing sightseeing as they have dozens and dozens of buses on the street. We are a niche entertainment experience that is of a higher standard and very popular during the holiday season. We...More

Yes they are. I would pass on this overpriced ‘tour’ as the arrogant owners are chronically oblivious to the shortcomings of this tourist trap.

During the ride, you don't go into the park, but you will ride by the park and see it from the street.
