New York City Hop-on Hop-Off Tour including One World Observatory Admission

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Discover New York in speed and style on a hop-on hop-off bus tour. Climb aboard at any stop along the way, and listen to the narration as you zoom past Manhattan’s top sights. Remain on board for the full loop or disembark where and when you wish. Tickets to the One World Observatory are also included, while an optional All Loops upgrade includes extra itineraries and museum entrance.
  • 24-hour ticket gives you the freedom to design your own NYC sightseeing plan
  • Learn more from your guide as you pass Manhattan’s top landmarks
  • Included entry to the One World Observatory for bird’s-eye views
  • Upgrade for additional bus itineraries plus museum admission
What to Expect
With your voucher in hand, board at any bus stop along the route and head for the open-air second level or remain on the climate-controlled first level. Your guide shares stories about New York’s history and landmarks as you journey throughout the city (audio headsets with pre-recorded narration are also available in multiple languages). Stay on board for the whole route to see destinations ranging from Times Square and SoHo to the Statue of Liberty and the Flatiron Building, or choose to hop off and explore further whenever you wish. Your tickets are valid for 24 hours, so you have the freedom to design your own sightseeing itinerary. The cost of admission also includes tickets to the One World Observatory. As the tallest building in the western hemisphere, the skyscraper offers panoramic views overlooking the whole city. The optional All Loops upgrade includes further opportunities to discover, including a Brooklyn loop, an Uptown Manhattan loop, and a nighttime tour (the latter of which is not hop-on hop-off). This upgrade also includes entrance to the Museum of the City of New York or the New-York Historical Society, in addition to One World Observatory access.
