Overview

Manhattan transforms into a city of lights as soon as the sun sets. Avoid crowded sidewalks and subways, and instead enjoy views of the NYC borough’s landmarks from the open-air top of a double-decker bus. As you drive over the Brooklyn Bridge, get panoramic views of the glittering Manhattan skyline reflected in the East River.

What to Expect

Your evening begins at 6:30pm in Manhattan’s Theater District. Climb aboard the double-decker bus and head to the top level for unobstructed views of the city.

As the sun sets, snap photos of popular neighborhoods, including Times Square, Greenwich Village, Chinatown, and SoHo. An onboard guide ensures you never miss a landmark and provides a wealth of information about each one you pass.

Relax on the bus, as you pass the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, and the Manhattan Bridge illuminated under the night sky. On this tour, you avoid streets and subways that are notoriously crowded at this time of day.

Continue across the Brooklyn Bridge for rare views of the Manhattan skyline shimmering over the East River. Around 8pm, end the night back at your centrally located departure point.

Night tour

Generally the tour was good. However, there was some confusion over exactly where to meet the bus when going to the bus tour travel depot on 47th street after purchasing the tickets online. One employee was not helpful at all and we were frustrated, but...More

Couldn’t understand a dam thing...

Worst tour guide ever! Mumbled every sentence and every sentence drifted out of the mic while he’d tilt his head back and look up at the buildings. I even brought this to his attention. Talked only about what year the buildings were built and how...More

We bought tickets on line for this tour months in advance, we had our vouchers in hand when we arrived at their main ticket redemption center near Times Square, we took about 30 minutes waiting in that line, we got out tickets, then we walked...More

No. Not guaranteed. Half of the seats are on top and half are on the bottom. It was nice weather when I went and everyone wanted on top. The first bus we tried to board was full on top so they put me in line for the next bus... More
