AWESOME!

Reviewed on 4/5/2017, By Sharon C.
This bus tour is GREAT!! It is the perfect way to view the city and see all the landmarks, especially for a first time visit to New York City. We purchased a TWO day pass so we could take our time and see all the wonderful places the city has to offer!! It was also convenient and easy to hop on and hop off!
The tour guides were extremely friendly and helpful. Our favorite guide was DARIUS! You could tell that he loves his job!! We even had fun in the rain!! We also took the night tour, which was beautiful to see the city lights! But it was very cold, so bundle up! The free ferry ride included in our package was the perfect way to see the Statue of Liberty. We are so glad that we took the two day tour!
