Best way to see the city without walking! Highly reccomemd for all ages. If weather is great make sure to get a seat on top.
Lady-friend and I visited NYC to celebrate her B-Day .. her first visit, been there many times .. loved the tour, especially Sherwood The Guide .. so informative, so much personality .. this tour is highly recommended !!!
We always start off any first visit with an open top bus tour. This was comprehensive and so convenient. We took the option for a night time tour and were not disappointed. Would strongly reccommend!!
excellent, excellent, excellent, the guides knew their subject and each and everyone of them brought something special
This is a wonderful way to move around New York and see all the sights. Highly enjoyed. This was my first time to New York. It will not be my last! Loved it!
The Big Bus Hop-on Hop-off tour was a great way to get around the city. The tour guides were awesome and gave us plenty of tips for enjoying the city.
Great way to get around and see all the attractions. Tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and we saw far more than if we had walked around. Highly recommended.
This is a fabulous tour! I love doing the Hop-on Hop-off tours in every city when I'm only there for a day or two. You get to get a glimpse of everything - then step off when you really want an in-depth view/experience. Cheaper than taxi's to get around... and you feel safer than transit.
This was amazing, and really great people, so helpful and knowledgeable.
Had a three day pass and did all routes including the night trip - a great way to see the city.
Our tour guide, Matt, on the Night Tour, was exceptional with his information and presentation! I loved the lights and going over the Manhattan Bridge to Brooklyn. Very pretty and gave you a different perspective from the day tours. Of course, the day tours showed New York City and where we needed to go! Matts driver femalename begins with an M too was excellent as well. Highly recommend the Hop on Hop Off Big Bus Tours!
The tour guides are amazing! Buses are on time. There are different staffs at the major stops available to help and organize the tourists. Danny from Brooklyn Loop is the B-E-S-T! He is full of humor and everyone is engaged during the whole trip. Kudos to the whole team!
Great way to get an overview of the city. Informative guides, friendly and funny guides. I especially enjoyed the night lights tour.
Big Bus was the greatest choice to know the city without getting so tired.
The Crew is very helpful, Our Guides were true New Yonkers' and told us the good, the bad and the great. We learned a lot about New York City.
