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.

First visit to NY and signed up with this company. Did a 2 day tour and we were impressed by the knowledge and passion with Shelly. He was very informative and learned more than expected. I will refer my friends that are planning their first tour later this year. I would definitely recommended Onboard Tours...

Ask for Stanley. He was great. Very knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating. We saw all of the large attractions and got to ride the ferry.

I am so glad I found this tour! We only had 1 day in NYC and wanted to see as much as we could. We did the 5 1/2 hour tour with our driver, Ricardo and Jimmy, the chicken man tour guide! I can't rave enough about the clean van, temperature control, plenty of free water and sooooo much info!... More

We throughly enjoyed our Onboard See It All Premium tour of NYC! Our super guide Jeff was so entertaining and very knowledgeable! The tour was well planned and the pace was brisk, but not too fast for the 11 yr old and 66 yr old. The walking portion was also very doable. It was a lot packed into one day,... More

I did this tour five years ago. It was great. They hired a water taxi to take us up close to the statue of liberty. But this time, to pinch oennies, they put us on the Staten Island ferry. My kids saw nothing of Lady Liberty. And no pics. Very, very disappointed.

This was our 4th trip to NYC, but our son-in-law's 1st, so we wanted a really good tour to see the most sights that we could. Our experience w/ this company was not good. If you're short on time, please, save your money and just take one of the hop on/hop off buses.. choose the 4 or 5 sights that... More

Obviously your review is in the VAST minority. We also received your comments inter company were you suggest the guide was horrible. Your guide was Jeff a beloved guide of 11 years of experience who is a favorite of MOST Trip Advisor reviewers. I suggest all folks read all the wonderful comments left by other reviewers below and above. FM More

Great Time! Would recommend to anybody. Guide was very informative and helpful. He went above and beyond the actual tour and helped us to understand subways, taxis, recommendations on dining, etc. :)

Stop looking! This is the tour company to use! Our family of 4 took the See It All Tour, and had a great time. Our tour guide Sheldon did a great job. He tells stories based on the history of NYC, personal stories, and humor to keep us informed and entertained. He has immense knowledge of NYC, it's buildings, neighborhoods,... More

This is the way to go! Our tour guide Jeff was very knowledgeable & made the trip entertaining! We only had 1 day to spend in NYC so I highly suggest you take the Premium tour (8 hrs) so you can visit the Pedestal of the Statute of Liberty & the ferry ride was was Awesome!!

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.
