We started early in the day as it was going to be 95 degrees the guide was funny and informative and we were lucky not to have to wait for the two buses we took. Great deal!
Very enjoyable tours around the whole of Manhattan. In hindsight, if you plan well you really get good use out of the hop on hop off aspect, great for going where you want to go and also just to sit and enjoy the sights and take lots of photos. My only niggle was finding the bust stops, its a little hard with all the signage everywhere in NY, they can be missed.
The tour guides on these buses are all passionate about something; how much we get out of the tour, how much we rappreciate, depends on the degree that their tastes coincide with ours. We had three. One was very knowledgable about NYC architecture, one about history, with anecdotes about famous people that went with the places we saw; one seemed to want to give us a perspective based on living in New York. We got caught in heavy traffic with him and he only talked about people leaving in the Holland Tunnel for the weekend instead of telling us interesting stories like the second guide would have.
Taking the hop on and off, with ferry to Statue of Liberty was the perfect way for us to take our teenage granddaughter on a day trip to NYC for the first time. She got a feel for the city and saw many NY icons. My only suggestion would be to advise tourists that the
Overall it was nice to see but Brooklyn and Harlem tour was not what was expected. I thought we will see actual historical places. Tour guides for Brooklyn was great but Harlem guide was not so great
Don't use "New York City Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tour". Waste of money. If not many people in the bus, drivers are advised to wait until the bus is reasonably filled. Don't rely on time table. Not all buses are available with guides.
From 45+ min waits to no AC on a hot and humid day we were very disappointed. Multiple buses didn’t have audio, tour guides were very hit or miss and we lost a ton of time waiting for buses.
We could not board the bus with the e ticket, this delayed our arrival to Battery Park and we were unable to board the ferry. the entire exercise was a waste of time and money.
The QR code provided did not allow us to board. Fortunately the kind driver did let us get on to go to the next stop, near their offices. We waited a very long time for buses, and saw so many others from other companies go by. We finally got our bus, and the guide was dry and boring, and even rude to some riders.
The website states that you can redeem your printed or e-voucher at any stop. That is not correct. I had to walk several blocks to redeem my families voucher prior to us getting on the bus. I have done several hop on hop off tours around the world and this is the first one that I had such difficulty using our vouchers. I don't think I will use this company the next time I visit New York City.
The best way to see the city is with a hop-on-hop-off bus tour! Your bus tour includes spots along the way at all the major attractions for you to get off and explore at your leisure. Includes a ticket to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Choose from 24-hour, 48-hour or 72-hour bus ticket.
Your ticket also includes a Night Tour of the city lights at iconic attractions, a hop-on, hop-off ferry tour of New York’s waterways and entrance to your choice of the Museum of the City of New York or New York Historical Society
