One of the best decisions we made while in NYC was to purchase the Big Bus Hop-On Hop-Off Sightseeing Tour. We purchased the 3-day pass and it was well worth the money. Next time, we will not over schedule activities but rather just get on and off the Big Bus in places we'd like to explore. Wonderful!

A g reat trip helped by sunny weather. Sailing round Manhattan with an entertaining commentary. Gave a great introduction to Manhattan and the layout of the City.

it was totally awesome..although because of the parade on Oct. 10th, we didn't get to go on the blue route which I had paid for.. they had closed roads.

It was fun. I liked how they gave out headphones so the tour guide didn’t have to tell and you could take the headphones out if you wanted a break.

Love everything about!! The guide was very funny,love of all his jokes.
