    When arriving at the location for the ride I found the staff couldn’t be bothered with us . Once in the bus the staff were friendly , bubbly and maybe to much for me . The man was obsessed with wanting people to touch his hair . The performers on the street were good but not

    This was one of the activities included in my New York Pass. I made reservations online, with no problem, about a week early. I read reviews and it looked like fun. I want to say that I don’t know what fun means to the people giving negative reviews, but we had a great time!

    Thank you! We love this review and honestly can't understand the negative reviews either. For anyone experiencing this for the first time, the unique million dollar bus alone deserves a shout out! Perhaps those are just boring people who don't know how to have a good time! Thanks for the 5 stars!
