Owner description: 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.

With no notice at all we showed up to a dark bus only to find the workers show up 15 minutes before we were supposed to leave to tell us they had not been paid in 3 weeks. The workers told us they had canceled every tour that day yet the company was still directing people to the pickup location.... More

I paid for a tour and came to NYC all he way from Africa only to be told at the location that the workers were on strike as they had not been paid for the past 3 weeks. I am yet to be refunded my money and will certainly sue

Was on site at the bus to get on the tour, but drivers were telling customers that everything was cancelled. In from out of state in NYC at 9:00 AM, left STRANDED! December 13 2014. Book with some other company! Call office and no one would answer any calls. No service of any kind.

After calling the CEO he said a bus was in a different location. Having moved to here we found a bus with a... More

We paid for a holiday lights tour that never showed up, leaving us and dozens of others stranded. This company is a sham.

we really enjoyed our tour of nyc yesterday (dec 8, 2014) with Gill and Nadine. Saw lots of nyc that you could not possibly see by yourself. Was very moving seeing strawberry fields on the anniversary of john lennon's assassination. Gill was very good: had lots of info and made everyone feel welcomed. We were the stranglers as we took...

Our trip to New York City was a surprise for my mom and we had booked a few things but left some evenings open for her to decide what we would do. I found a Holiday city tour and thought it would be a nice way to see more of the city and the Christmas lights offered during the holidays.... More

We recently took this tour to see New York City. Our guide was Bryant (Spartans) He will know what that means :) This tour allows you to view many of the sights of the city. It all takes around 5-6 hrs meaning it moves quickly. The bus is comfortable and warm as it was very cold. Bryant provided history and... More

We did the see it all tour with Dave, the Dora the explorer backpack wearing tour guide who, with his trusty crooked stick, kept us informed and entertained the whole time as we saw everything we wanted to see in the five or so hours. It's so convenient to hop on and off the bus as a group and see... More
