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 got tensed as tour group did not return even after 3.5 hours. I had followed up with the customer service to know the status of the group at the island... More

Since I only had one day to catch most of the New York sights, I opted for this all in one excursion. Purchase your ticket in advance online and meet the bus downtown. Our route was impacted by the St. Patrick's day parade, and more planning could have gone into mapping out an alternate route. The driver did a good... More

We were in new York for 5 days and booked the tour before we went, due to the fact of the amount of things we would see on the tour. Our tour was led by shelly and driven by Anthony. Safe to say the day was amazing, we didn't just sit on a bus and look out the windows, shelly... More

I did not want to travel with young 20 somethings on their first visit to NY seeing all the highlights. So based on TripAdvisor reviews I purchased tickets and sent them on the shorter highlight tour. The loved it. They thought the tour guide was fantastic, the sites and timing perfect for them. All in all everything was great. One... More

In December 2014 following a personal recommendation I booked 2 tours of NY with this company for three people and paid $509 in advance for tours in April 2015. In March I received an e mail advising I was getting the money refunded. I asked why but did not get a reply to three e mails. The money was refunded... More

I was only in New York for the day and decided to book a tour instead of brave it on my own. I booked the see it all tour (5.5hr tour) and I'm glad I did. Anthony (driver) and Mike (guide) were fabulous. Mike was knowledgeable and funny and made the trip memorable. Highly recommended.

We did the See It All Premium Tour with David and the See The Best tour with Sheldon, both tour guides were very different but both very knowledgeable about the city. A lot of quirky facts about the different attractions we visited made the tours very interesting and worthwhile as we never would have noticed a lot of the things... More

Don't get me wrong, this tour is worth the price. I took the Premium NYC tour. The only complaint any of us had is that the tour bus windows were so incredibly dirty that you could not take any photographs from the bus. We got off the bus a great deal, but it was useless for the tour guide to... More

We adored this tour. The bus was comfortable and the driver did a great job. The tour guide was just fantastic. She was full of interesting information about every sight and answered our questions very thoroughly. She was very enthusiastic but she took the time to make sure we could all keep up and that no one got left behind... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
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.
