Overview

Manhattan transforms into a city of lights as soon as the sun sets. Avoid crowded sidewalks and subways, and instead enjoy views of the NYC borough’s landmarks from the open-air top of a double-decker bus. As you drive over the Brooklyn Bridge, get panoramic views of the glittering Manhattan skyline reflected in the East River.

What to Expect

Your evening begins at 6:30pm in Manhattan’s Theater District. Climb aboard the double-decker bus and head to the top level for unobstructed views of the city.

As the sun sets, snap photos of popular neighborhoods, including Times Square, Greenwich Village, Chinatown, and SoHo. An onboard guide ensures you never miss a landmark and provides a wealth of information about each one you pass.

Relax on the bus, as you pass the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, and the Manhattan Bridge illuminated under the night sky. On this tour, you avoid streets and subways that are notoriously crowded at this time of day.

Continue across the Brooklyn Bridge for rare views of the Manhattan skyline shimmering over the East River. Around 8pm, end the night back at your centrally located departure point.

So thankful I didn't opt for the 3 hour tour - 1.5 hours was long enough.... :(

I was in NYC with the entire family for a little vacation after my sons' lacrosse tournament on Long Island. I had been on a double decker tour of the city before with my eldest a few years ago and LOVED it. The tour guides...More

Don't Miss This!

This tour was outstanding. Knowledgable guide. Got to see a little of everything! We ended up boarding before it was dark, but we got to see the sunset behind One World Trade Center. Loved the little tour of Brooklyn since we wouldn't normally go there.

No. Not guaranteed. Half of the seats are on top and half are on the bottom. It was nice weather when I went and everyone wanted on top. The first bus we tried to board was full on top so they put me in line for the next bus... More
