Forget the confusing subway. Avoid expensive taxis. The best and most fun way to see the Big Apple is via the hop-on hop-off double-decker tour bus. With this pass, you have unlimited rides for 24, 48, or 72 hours, allowing you to get off the bus at any point to explore each spot in New York and then get back on the bus when you want to continue on. Customize your itinerary picking the places you want to see the most. And while you're on the bus, enjoy the narration about the history of the city and each place you pass by. Choose pre-recorded narration in English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese, Mandarin, Russian, Japanese, Korean or Hebrew. The narration is enhanced with music and sounds of the bustling New York city streets. Additionally, it is GPS-triggered so what you hear will always be relevant to what you see.
And then get off at Battery Park to enjoy the complimentary round-trip ferry ride to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. This all makes for the perfect combination to get the most out of New York -- from seeing Manhattan's great landmarks to spending some up close and personal time with Lady Liberty.
