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. Smaller groups make better tours, so we limit group size on our tours and use smaller shuttles that allow more interaction with your guide.

We took the 8 hour tour on our 1st day in NYC. Sheldon was our guide and Mel our driver. We were fortunate as there were only 5 people in total in the tour that day, so it was like our own private tour! What can I say that does this tour justice....Sheldon was wonderful, he was friendly, personable, empathetic,... More

My daughter and I booked the 5 hour trip but we were upgraded free of charge to a full day that included a boat trip to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Jeff was an amazing guide, keen to ensure everyone was looked after and passed on so much local knowledge. Full of money saving tips and even gave... More

We were going to be in NYC for a week of sightseeing and to celebrate New Years Eve. We wanted to see as much as we could in the shortest amount of time. We booked two tours (the Premium & the Best) and found them both to be very enjoyable! Even our two teenaged daughters were entertained by the tours... More

This was a great way to see many of the major attractions in New York in a short amount of time. We skipped the lines at every stop. Jeff was our tour guide and was full of tips on things to do during the rest of our stay, when to do them to avoid the crowds, etc. He was a... More

We bought our tickets online called ahead to confirm everything. All was okay, until we arrived at the venue exactly at the appointed time of 7pm. The Bus driver said... More

Dear TripAdvisor Reader's Please take this review and assign it ZERO credibility. You don't win the awards this concern has from this very website year after year by practicing such egregious acts. NO BUSINESS would or could THRIVE with such a strategy. Factually the guests came running up to a bus that had LEFT the commencement point at 7:04pm. The... More

My wife and I did the Christmas light tour from onboard tours. Our guide was Jeff, he did an outstanding job. He made great suggestions on where to shop and eat, along with good ways to save money. Jeff provided us with interesting facts and good stories about NY. I would recommend this to any friend or family member. If... More

We did a Red Eye Tour to NYC through a local tour bus company. We arrived in NYC at 7am on Saturday and had the entire day to spend in the city. We decided to do the Premium See It All Tour with OnBoard Tours. It was the best decision we made. We would have never been able to see... More

We chose this tour to see the lights of New York City, we saw some. There were a lot of stops with a lot of walking included. Narrator was not funny buy was almost offensive culturally and and ethnicity. We left the tour before it was over and took a cab to our hotel.

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.
