We were expecting just your average city tour but with bigger windows, however this is so much more than that. A fun and unique way to see the city, and I couldn't recommend it more. If you're fortunate enough to get on Rory's bus, you're in for a treat - she is fantastic!

We booked on line with a Groupon voucher, no problem, but there was no discount. Keep an eye out for the Tour brochure, may have a $ 5.00 voucher. But if you are going in a high season suggest on line so you get a seat. No refunds. Cold March day, they are very clear no warm waiting area, but you can hang in the Marriott lobby for a few minutes before boarding, as they do not let you on early. This is not a Hop On Hop off, but more like a experience. Fun well informed guide, Stadium style seats and windowed roof gives you great views. Bus is awesome with monitors that highlight the area with videos and special effects. Note there are two offerings, This is the Tour By The Ride @ 35.00 pp. They also have The Ride, more of an entertainment at $ 55.00 The Tour lasted 90 minutes and was fun.

We have been to NYC many times, but this tour covered some things we had not visited, so it was not just your typical tourist tour. It was a blast, just a lot of fun. The tour guide was fantastic.Very informative, but at the same time injecting a lot of dry humor into the tour. I can't wait to go back and try "the ride" next!

A great combination of education and fun; with the very knowledgable host taking you through the various areas in NYC and giving you all of the history and facts. The bus itself uses technology to make the experience even more impactful and visual.

The tour guide and driver were outstanding. Having worked in Manhattan over 30 years, I went on this tour and learned many things about the City. Unfortunately, did not have time to do the other 2 tours, but will do so this year - - I have friends who will be visiting and The Ride is definitely on the itinerary. Go! It's a terrific experience and lots of fun!!
