The bus is a great way to put some perspective to New York which is so huge. The architecure is incredible both in historical areas and the newer parts. Chris was a super guide, both knowledgeable and witty.

This was my 3rd trip to the big apple and my favourite because l had a change to visit some iconic areas of NYC.
• Submitted 06 Aug 2019
Enjoyed the time. Easy to get on and off. Buses were always not very far apart to get on. We only got to take the downtown loop but it was very nice. Guide on final loop was very informative and easy to understand. Maybe not possible but would have liked to have a stop at the Staten Island Ferry dock. Plan to do uptown next time.

I travelled to New York with my 83-year-old father who had never been to the city. We started our trip with the Hop-On Hop-Off and it was the perfect overview of the city for him and I learned a great deal as well. Our tour guide Nick was top notch.

Great way to get around and see all the attractions. Tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and we saw far more than if we had walked around. Highly recommended.
• Submitted 27 Jul 2018
This is a fabulous tour! I love doing the Hop-on Hop-off tours in every city when I'm only there for a day or two. You get to get a glimpse of everything - then step off when you really want an in-depth view/experience. Cheaper than taxi's to get around... and you feel safer than transit.

Our tour guide, Matt, on the Night Tour, was exceptional with his information and presentation! I loved the lights and going over the Manhattan Bridge to Brooklyn. Very pretty and gave you a different perspective from the day tours. Of course, the day tours showed New York City and where we needed to go! Matts driver femalename begins with an M too was excellent as well. Highly recommend the Hop on Hop Off Big Bus Tours!
