    It’s a really nice way to see the city. There isn’t a lot of direction on where and when the tour stops. The directions say you can get on the bus at any stop to start your day but the bus driver said we had to get on at a location with a street attendant. The audio guide was off on the timing of the landmarks and I wish there was more information from the guide. But like I said it’s a really nice way to see the city.

    Tom, our guide, was fantastic. He told us and showed us more about NYC than we would find in the best guidebooks. He was jovial, knowledgeable, and patient. Best 6 hours in New York City.

    The bus driver and tour guide (Roberto) were amazing. Making reservations was easy. The bus was on time going and returning. The bus was clean and the bus driver and tour guides made the trip enjoyable. There was constant communications throughout the trip and navigating the Niagara Falls State Park was a breeze, because passengers were given maps of the park.

    We enjoyed the bus tour around New York seeing some of the famous Tv & Movie locations, including Ghostbusters and Friends. The duration does depend on the traffic, ours was about 2 hours. You do get to stop and get out of the bus on a few occasions but not for food/drink or restrooms. So ensure you bring your own. The tour guide was very knowledgable about the industry and shared her own personal experiences as an actor which was enlightening. Also offered to take your photograph which was great. (Sorry I can’t remember her name.) You also have some video clips shown inside the bus as you pass various locations.
    My only feedback is that the bus itself needs some tlc! Inside was tired with peeling interior, it was raining and my husband felt water dripping on him from some sort of crack. Wasn’t that comfortable either, very bumpy in places but on the whole it was worth it. We used the Go City pass

    Check the bucket list. Took great pictures and enjoyed the experience. Definitely something every one should experience at some point in their life.

    It’s lots of walking. I went on a warm ish day so be prepared for that. Hydrate. Bring plenty of snacks and prepare for a long bus ride there and back.

    Gave us the opportunity to view NY from a different perspective having spent the majority of our time in Manhattan. Our tour guide Tony was brilliant! He was born and bred in Brooklyn and was able to pass on so much information about all the boroughs we visited, especially Brooklyn.

    So only thing was the guys trying to bug you to buy tickets all the time and say its only 19 dollars then to find out they add 10 dollars on top of the price 😆. So we done the night tour which left at times square you book your time we 20:30 it's a 90 minute trip around new york and across the bridge. I can't fault it it surprise me really enough it. Especially at night yes it was cold but what to expect in February. It was a non stop by the way no you can't hop on and off which I thought was a good idea for a night special. The lady doing the chatting on the mic was really down to eath explaining everything to us and telling us history of the city I didn't know, because we sat at top right at the back she always made sure we was ok due to it being cold.

    This tour was well worth it. A little girls trip and being able to explore the best parts of New York City was all we could have asked for. We got to eat at a delicious Italian restaurant in little Italy and stop at a couple souvenir shops to bring home some gifts on top of everything else. Definitely an experience I was happy to have planned. Highly recommend!

    Early start. Our guide was knowledgable and helpful. Visited lots of sites including the white house. No wifi on the bus as promised which was disappointing. Very long day but worth it.

    This tour of the NYC skyline from the New Jersey side was excellent and a must for any Photographers. The 1st two stops were in late evening daylight. The last 2 stops were at night with the city lit up. So you get both type of views. .Sebastian was an excellent guide giving us history of New Jersey. He has a pleasant nature. He was polite and very patient. His driving was experienced and safe. We stopped at 4 different view points all excellent, we also stopped at Carlos Original Bakery.
    Thank you Sebastian
