I wanted a tour more than the hop on and off tours that are touted on every corner so I researched a tour company to help us experience the sights of NYC with a personal flair. It was mine and daughter's first time in NYC. I came across OnBoard in my search and am not disappointed. We booked the Premium... More

Highlights include the ferry trip to Staten Island, past the Statue of Liberty, the sober trip to Ground Zero, 9/11 memorial and of course the Central Park. Big shout... More

My 16 year old son and I were first time visitors to NYC and only had one day. We took the "NY See it All" tour the first week of August. It was a great combination of touring on the bus (air-conditioned, cold water, and EXCELLENT driver), walking short distances, and riding the ferry past the Statue of Liberty. Our... More

Bernice had us laughing the whole tour. We came from Salt Lake City, Utah for a baseball tournament in Cooperstown and she gave all the boys a... More

We were met by Dave at the arranged collection point. He warned us there was to be a fair bit of walking and had to reiterate this to a family with young children who kept wanting to use the bathroom which reduced our times at a couple of the attractions. There is a lot of walking initially, so if you... More

This was a wonderful overview of NYC. Just the right amount of riding and getting out at the attractions. Our guide Altivese was warm, funny, genuine and knowledgeable. We definately got the feel of what it was like to be a tourist and to be a regular New Yorker. I would have left out the Staten Island Ferry and spent... More

An OUTSTANDING tour today, August 10th, with Gary the tour guide and Ricardo the driver. Our family of 5 people ranged from 14-71 years old. Each person in our group enjoyed the tour and learned a lot about NYC. Just the right amount of walking and riding. Gary is a wealth of knowledge and engaging for audiences of all ages.... More

Howie and Jerome were an awesome team and this 5 hour tour was just right. I only had one day in New York and wanted to see it all. Howie is passionate about his city and he had a lot to share. I highly recommend it.
