This is the second time we have taken this bus. Great way to see the main sites of NYC. Be sure to dress for the weather and pick up the earphones to be able to hear the history of each of the sites you are going by. The Night Tour is highly recommended.

Hi Martin G, The perfect route to see all of the quintessential sites. Sitting on the top deck, you’ll have clear views of Rockefeller Center, the Empire State, and Flatiron Buildings, The New Times Square, the Union Square shopping district, Greenwich Village, Soho, Chinatown, Little Italy, Lower East Side, East Village. You can stay on the bus for the full route to see all the sights in one go. Or you can hop off as many times as you would like along the way to explore the city on your own. Either way, you’re sure to learn something new along the way from the good information tour guides on each bus. We are incredibly grateful that you took the time out to leave us this note. We work really hard to offer the best service, so I am happy to see that reflected on your last visit. We hope to serve you again.
