OnBoard New York Tours operates the Only Comprehensive Guided Tour of New York City. Our tour guides hop off the shuttle bus with you at each attraction, showing you the city in detail. Smaller groups make better tours, so we limit group size on our tours and use smaller shuttles that allow more interaction with your guide.

Our guide, Jeff, made things fun and had tons of insight on how to see New York without getting ripped off. There is a good bit... More

We enjoyed this tour on a cold snowy day in NYC. Our tour guide, Jimmy was excellent and we enjoyed seeing the sights and then warming back up on the tour bus.

We saw the Holiday Lights Tour. We saw all the famous department store windows as well as many of the NYC landmarks from Empire to Central Park to Lincoln Center. Our guide was excellent, a native New Yorker, so we got lots of tips for enjoying the city. Small children may get bored as this tour was 3 hours.

Jeff was our tour guide, and he was awesome. He knew everything about NY and had great stories to tell. If this is your first time to NY, take this tour on your first day. Once we done the tour, then we knew what we wanted to go back and see and spend more time at. Jeff took his time... More

From the moment I talked to Fred (owner of the company), I felt excited and at ease. I brought 35 high school students and 9 adults to NY for a broadway experience. Fred planned the all day tour and transportation to and from LaGuardia at a great price. Our tour of the city was led professionally by Sheldon. Sheldon knows... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
