We did the NY See It All Tour with OnBoard and it was our favourite part of our weekend trip! This tour is especially great if you don't have a lot of time to waste in the city because you get to see all the major attractions of the city in a short amount of time. Our tour guide Jimmy... More

Visited NYC with my family and took the OnBoard Tour. It was an excellent way to see the city and our tour guide Edwin was awesome! He was a native of the city and shared lots of information regarding the sites and how to come to NY a tourist and leave a local. I would highly recommend this tour.

I am in the travel industry and was anxious to experience this tour. I was pleasantly surprised!! This is a smaller tour bus which gives more flexibility and comfort and is there waiting while you get off at designated sites (along with adequate bathroom breaks!) Bottled water was provided any time we wanted which was a big plus. Our tour... More

I booked the "NY See It All! Tour " on line about six weeks before leaving IL. I took my brother and his wife to NYC since they had never seen the city. This particular tour had a number of sights I wanted my family to see; it was a great value for 5 1/2 hrs. The nice, smaller tour... More

This tour was fantastic! We took the night time tour with our tour guide Gil who kept us entertained and informed throughout. The New York skyline from Brooklyn was stunning and we saw many places we probably would have missed out on otherwise. We were a very small group of just 5 but Gil and his driver Chris put in...

Spartans....yes we were Spartans for a few hours...... 3 of us (1 a teen) are very happy we chose OnBoard. Our tour guide Bryant really made a long day enjoyable with storytelling, tour guiding and deep knowledge of the City. Good laughs. The bus was perfect for comfort (Nov 2014), the stops really nailed the south area of Manhatten and... More

We recently spent 5 fantastic days in New York. For the evening of November the 7 th we booked the ''See The Lights'' tour. We waited at the designated collection point but became a little concerned when no one appeared to be waiting with us. We were soon approached by a gentleman called Gil who confirmed if we were waiting... More

Excellent choice for an overview of Manhattan. An eight hour tour but the time just flew by. The tour guide, Gil, was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and entertaining. Not your usual droning guide who has said it all before. He sounded as if he was showing a bunch of guests his favourite parts of the city. Well worth the price.
