Overview
A comprehensive list of stops in downtown and uptown means you can design a New York tour by double-decker bus and boat that’s right for you, without being tied down to preset schedules or group tours. Choose from a list of flexible options and attraction passes and see New York on your own terms, while avoiding the expense of taxis.
Highlights
  • Customize your experience with multiple hop-on hop-off options
  • See New York’s top neighborhoods from a secure double-decker bus
  • Option to save money with add-on attraction admission tickets
  • Take in top sites at your own pace
  • Combine the convenience of a tour guide with total independence
What to Expect
Choose the tour option that’s right for you, paying only for the duration, attractions, and activities you use. You can board at any bus stop by showing your mobile or paper voucher to the on-board staff. If you’re a first-time visitor, get your bearings on one of the two loop hop-on, hop-off bus routes: Downtown or Uptown. Some of the highlights of these include Times Square, Rockefeller Center, and Museum Mile, and the routes are carefully designed to pass a long list of landmarks. Since passes include unlimited access throughout the duration, you have the option to ride the entire loop, then return to see the places that interest you most. The night tour (not hop-on hop-off) shows New York City when it lights up after dark, and a hop-on hop-off cruise option sails to the Statue of Liberty and the Brooklyn Bridge, with photo-friendly views of the New York City skyline.

The workers are only concerned with selling more tickets. The headphones/sound with city information did not work so you’re basically sitting on a bus in traffic. They lied to us about the schedule. We were dropped off with the promise of more buses coming. Nobody ever came. Our
