We had read reviews on Hop on Hop off bus so decided to try a guided.. Found Onboard Tours on tripadvisor and booked online the night before. We were not disappointed. Gil the Tour Guide was excellent and really knew his stuff. We saw so much in the 8 hours that we couldnt have managed to see so much on... More

Start your NYC vaca with a tour with OnBoard it will give you all the highlights you need and allow you to decide what attractions you want to explore further. I was recommended by my sister in law to book this tour from when she was in NYC in 2009. Both of our experiences are similar - so glad we... More

We only had one day in New York and wanted to see a few attractions. In hindsight, we should've just chosen two or three attractions and caught taxis in between. Our tour started badly as we were waiting at the wrong entrance to the building listed as the meeting point. We were with another family, who live in NY. They... More

We took the NY See It All Premium Tour and were happy we did! It was an all day experience broken up into segments of walking, sightseeing on the bus, and ferrying to The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. It was the hottest day of the year in NYC so the air conditioned bus, water, and boating were much... More

This was an excellent way to see many of the sights and get some great information that you would otherwise have to figure out on your own, or go without knowing. We took the Premium Tour and it was well worth it. A full day of sights and learning about NYC. Our guide was very helpful and we were so... More

We took this tour in Sept 2014. The small coach stays with you and waits whilst the guide shows you the various sights of New York. A great way to start your visit and discover sights you would like to investigate further. If you're lucky enough to have Sheldon as your guide and Anthony as your driver you're in for... More

Firstly Matt the guide on the on board tour is amazing. He has an impeccable knowledge of New York with great tips and tricks to know how to get around and survive in New York. The driver was very clever in mastering the eccentricities of New York traffic. Nothing was a bother or too hard. The bonus of this tour... More

Our tour guide was Jay. So knowledgeable about NY - it was incredible how he could answer any question we had. We started at 10am and got back just after 4.30pm. I did this tour at the beginning of my time in NY and it enabled me to choose what I would focus on for the rest of my holiday.... More
