A bus ride like no other as you are guided through some of the many sights of New York City. The guides are comedians and the passengers are their captive audience. At various points on the route, musicians, singers and dancers perform for the audience. The atmosphere is one of a giant party where members of the public are also encouraged to join the fun and many do.

Patrick’s restaurant is non existent therefore directions given are wrong. Beware of the men checking your tickets as they con you to pay them a tip to be able to sit in the front row by saying that we had bought inferior tickets when they weee all standard. But while queuing up would move others behind you with the pretence that they had bought better tickets than you and they would go in first when it was all lie. They controlled the queue till the very end telling some that the bus was too full and others would have to stay behind only to get extra money from desperate tourists who wanted to be allowed in after waiting! It was disgraceful how they played us against one another. It was upsetting and should not be allowed to play around with peoples money.

Didn’t really know what to expect but I can highly recommend it. It was such fun. I went with my sister and daughter who is 28, so very different ages and we all loved it. My daughter was blown away with the experience. The staff made it fun but at the same time made it informative.
