Big Bus New York Night Tour
From US$49.00

New York is the city that never sleeps, and one of the easiest and most convenient ways to take in its after-dark sights is aboard a nighttime bus tour. From a comfortable seat, you see many of the city’s best-known landmarks—Central Park and the Empire State Building to Times Square—all aglow. In addition to your guide, you have access to recorded commentary in 10 languages.

What to Expect

Meet at the corner of 48th Street and 7th Avenue, right in the heart of bustling Midtown, and climb aboard your bus. Seats on both decks are first-come, first-served, and you have the freedom to board anytime within the departure window.

Set off and prepare to discover many of the city’s top attractions, all illuminated after dark. You drive past the Empire State Building, Central Park, Times Square, and other popular landmarks, and even see the Statue of Liberty lit up in the distance. Take advantage of audio guides, available in 10 languages, for background on the city’s sights.

After several hours of exploring New York at night and capturing photos of the city's sights, you return to your original departure point, where the tour ends.
