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 really wanted to like this tour, but were quickly shocked at how little information about New York was shared by our guide David, who did talk enthusiastically and at length about his personal history and how outrageous it was to buy an apartment in Manhattan. We only saw most sites by looking down a street and looking between the... More

We booked the 5.5 hour tour. Our tour guide was Jeff! We were only in the city for the day and wanted to see as much as possible! With this tour we saw all the major landmarks. Jeff made the tour informative and fun. He gave helpful tips for visiting the city. My 8 year old also enjoyed the tour... More

I did the NYC Premium See It All Tour, and Sheldon aka "Shelly" was our tour guide. He was simply amazing. As a native New Yorker, he gave us so many interesting historical facts along with stories about each New York City sight we were seeing. Shelly's personal stories gave us added insight and information that you won't get from... More

Since I had never been to New York City, my husband and I decided to take a tour with Onboard Tours and we were definitely not disappointed. Tom was our guide and Luke was our driver and both were very personable. We did the 5 1/2 hour tour and it was time well spent with so much packed into one... More

Overall very good. Did half day and full day tours. Jimmy and Shelly were both good guides--locals with a personal story. Ample time at stops and both guides answered questions. Our full day tour was overbooked so they asked for volunteers to take it next day with full refund. We volunteered and got the trip free a day later. Main... More

Here is what the tour consists of: 20 min. ride to St. John's Divine. Tour guide gets off the bus with you, but you are on your own for 30 min. Then 30 min. bus ride to Grand Central Station where you are left on your own to eat for 45 min. Then an unguided 30 min. walk to Empire... More

As you can see, I write a lot of Trip Advisor reviews, because I rely on them to make my travel plans. Our "See It All" tour of NYC the other day was rife with problems. Perhaps they had a bad day? You be the judge. It began with 35 of us packed onto the bus as suggested, 30 minutes... 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.
