Customer Reviews



excellent so simple the buses were waiting at the cruise terminal straight off the ship and away same the next day regular buses on route no long waits or lack of space glad to recommend this company

Dawn W


I bought my 72 hour bus tour voucher in advance, but unfortunately couldn't make the most of it as a snow blizzard hit the city on my first day there, so didn't get to use my free night bus ride or boat tour. However, the uptown circuit, taking in Central Park, Harlem and surrounding area was magical in the snow the following day. The tour guide was very informative and the top front of the bus is covered, so the views were really good too.

Paul Armitage S


Great way to see the city - Sherwood was a fantastic guide and was fully of interesting facts as we moved around the various streets and avenues of New York.

Eileen P


We went on 2 different big bus tours. The one around Central Park, Harlem etc was the best but I honestly think that it's the commentator who makes the trip. Ours was sensational with anecdotes about people who lived in the areas we covered and the history behind the places we visited. Although not a 'genuine' New Yorker, he had lived in the area since 1979 and you could tell that he adored his adopted city. Definitely take at least one of these tours as it is well worth it.
