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.

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

Had a really enjoyable nighttime tour in Feb. with a group of 30 teenagers. What a like about this tour that sets it apart is that it stops along the way and lets the passengers get out for walk arounds and photo ops. Our tour guide, Sheldon, really really loves his hometown of New York and that made the tour... More

Please note, I am writing this review after talking with all details with customer care from onboard newyork tours. Our holiday light tour with this tour company was not at all a good exp. First of all Christmas holiday lighting tour is 70$ per person which is pretty expensive as compare to other tours in Time Square. We actually purchase... More

OnBoardTours, Manager at OnBoard New York Tours, responded to this review

We are very sorry you did not enjoy your tour. Our tours do cost more than our competitors, because you get the benefit of a comfortable seat, a climate-controlled vehicle, free refreshments on board, and a professional tour guide who stays with you the entire time. With regard to attractions being closed, we obviously cannot control what other companies or... More

Second tour with Onboard tours and this time in the winter. We did the NY See it All! premium tour. Evenly paced, taking us to all major attractions in the city. There were also ample amount of restroom breaks (helpful if you are traveling with elders in your group). Our tour guide Dave Roffe was terrific with his astounding knowledge... More

My friend & I booked the Night Tour of New York and it was great. We arrived a little early walked around the area. There was no one else around. When it was time for the tour, there was still just the two of us. For some reason the others who had booked the tour were noshows. This was great... More

We had a party of 13, including 5 children, many of whom had not been to NYC before. We did the 5.5 hr tour and it was PERFECT! It was a very chilly, busy NY day - 3 days before Christmas! It was so nice to be in a warm comfortable bus. They hit alot of great spots, and the... More

This was the second tour we have done with this company and it was as impressive as our last. In fact the two tours we have done with OnBoard are probably the best two we have ever taken. What makes their tours great are the guides, who are professional, passionate and a bit "out there" in the nicest possible way.... More

We did a 5 hour tour the first day we got to new York to see a few highlights and we're not dissapointed. Jimmy was fun and good value. It ended up being a private tour because Noone else was booked on it. We really appreciated that the company kept the tour going for us because it could of been... 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.
