Full description

Experience awesome New York City sites at night, as you hop aboard a comfortable tour bus for a comprehensive, fully-guided bus tour of NYC at night. Your tour guide will accompany you and will get off with you at each stop, helping you see a different side of New York City. This 4.5-hour guided night bus tour includes stops at the High Line Park, Pier 17, Little Island on Hudson River, Grand Central Station, Hudson Yards, and Times Square. The tour starts at 5:30 PM in the Times Square area on 7th Avenue, between 50th and 51st Streets (in the middle of the block), and ends at 10 pm at the same location. Leave the starting/ending location in Times Square and go to our first stop - one of the most fascinating attractions in NYC - the High Line Park. The stop includes a 15-minute walk on the elevated, linear park that was originally a railway dating back to the industrial days of the west side of Manhattan. Continue the guided walk to NYC's newest outdoor space - Little Island - a 2.4-acre public park on the Hudson River. Off to Pier 17 for magnificent views of the Brooklyn skyline and the iconic Brooklyn Bridge at night. The next stop is Grand Central Terminal for a quick indoor tour of this iconic NYC landmark and the views of the Chrysler Building and NYC's newest skyscraper - One Vanderbilt. Back on the bus and cruising along, see the Chelsea Piers, the West Village, the Financial District, the Meatpacking District, the most traditional side of Chinatown, and the three bridges along the East River - Brooklyn Bridge, Williamsburg Bridge, and Manhattan Bridge. The last stop is NYC's newest and trendiest neighborhood - Hudson Yards and the city's new landmark, the gigantic spiral staircase called Vessel. If you purchased optional Edge Observation Deck tickets - you will get a chance to experience the highest outdoor sky deck in the Western Hemisphere with 360° views of New York City, a thrilling glass floor experience, a champagne bar, and more. If you purchased Edge Observatory tickets, the Hudson Yards is the last stop on your tour. This tour offers 3 options for tour buses, a luxury climate-controlled closed-top bus, a unique small-capacity glass-top, or an open-top convertible bus that can open when the weather is friendly or retract and turn into a glass-top to protect you from the weather elements.

Additional sites and neighborhoods you will also see from the comfort of your bus include Tribeca neighborhood, where celebrities Robert De Niro and Taylor Swift live, Midtown East, Battery Park City, Soho, the Chelsea Piers, the West Village, the Financial District, the Meatpacking District, the three bridges along the East River - Brooklyn Bridge, Williamsburg Bridge, and Manhattan Bridge, the Empire State Building, the United Nations Building, One World Trade Center, the MetLife Building, the Chrysler Building, and more.

We saw a lot of beautiful places that I wouldn’t have known to go to. We were a bit surprised when we were dropped off at the Edge and told we needed to find our own way back. That wasn’t clear in the tour. We were picked up a few streets from Times Square and I specifically booked it because I thought we ended in the same place. They had a concierge desk at the Edge building and they were extremely helpful and called us a cab so it worked out surprisingly well.
