OnBoard New York Tours operates the Only Comprehensive Guided Tour of New York City. Our tour guides hop off the shuttle bus with you at each attraction, showing you the city in detail.

The guide talked about history, answered all questions and we had time to take pictures on each location, we even got on the boat even though it was not the season anymore, the views from the boat were good.

Our tour was conducted by Jeff, who is a very animated tour guide to say the least. He will say himself at the start of the tour that if you are looking for a tour of New York giving history, this one probably isn't for you. What you will get though is a real New Yorker who will take you... More

We had a great day - lots of information and history from our guide, Sheldon who brought his own sense of humour and comment to the day! He was extremely knowledgeable and seemed to be able to answer any question that was asked of him. Great balance of getting off the bus to walk about and with periods riding the... More

I researched the best way to get the most out of 1 day in NYC..I called customer service a couple of times with questions and each time was greeted by Victor. He answered all questions and even returned a voicemail so that impressed from the start. We decided on the 5.5 hour See It All Tour. Trying to find the... More

Premium tour was great. Tour guide Jeff and driver Kelly were among the best we ever had. The New York Best tour was a waste of time with the frenetic guide, Stanley, deviating from scheduled tour to show and talk about his interests.

We booked the NYC day tour through OnBoard New York Tours, and we were super disappointed from the word go. The tour is poorly designed - I have personally done various bus tours in many cities, and this one does not match upto those. We also bought tickets through this company to see the Empire State Building (its optional), and... More

Folks this review is beyond embarrassing. Let's deal with the facts. Client was promptly refunded their money for ESB tickets that the tour guide MISTAKENLY failed to give them in time. It rarely happens and when it does we are accountable immediately. I will be happy to offer ANYONE wishing to speak with other members of these tour that ENJOYED... More

Let me start by saying I have now taken a tour with the company twice (2009 & 2015). I rated the 2009 tour 5* Fast forward to 2015. I took the premium see it all tour as I was visiting NYC with a friend who had not been before. It was my 4th visit and I particularly wanted to see... More

My first trip to NYC and I wanted to see as much as possible. I've done the Hop on Hop off thing in other cities and while it is an inexpensive way to see things, getting on again can be problematic when there is a breakdown or everyone else is trying to do it at the same time. So. .... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
