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.

I would like to write a review of the OnBoard See the Lights tour. However, I cannot because it never happened. The tour was scheduled for a Saturday at 7:00 p.m., but it was cancelled at 3:00 p.m. on Friday (the day BEFORE) because not enough people had signed up. That would have been acceptable, but the two of us... More

We absolutely messed this reservation up due to a technical glitch in our reservation system. IT IS NOT the way we OPERATE. Yes the Lights tour has few guests then other more popular tours but we ALWAYS go if people are booked. Unfortunately, this was a technical issue which we were blind to until after the fact. Of course refunded... More

Jimmy was our tour guide - funny and informative. We only had one day to "sightsee" and were traveling with my older parents...Being able to get on and off of only one bus and have a guide that was always with us was the best!

Took the See It All Tour on Aug. 23. Jeff was a terrific guide---very knowledgeable and HIGHLY entertaining. Mel was an excellent driver and very accommodating to all his passengers. Two terrific fellows and an excellent tour--the best I've taken during my four trips to NYC. I highly recommend this tour and these two pros in particular. George, Toronto, Canada

Great tour - Sheldon Lapidus, the tour guide, was awesome. Extremely knowledgeable, funny, helpful, friendly and slightly provocative.

My wife and I live on Long Island & we took the 4 1/2 hour "NYC See it all" tour that didn't include the Empire State Bldg. My wife loved it (She loves everything), Me...ehhh... not as much!

We met our tour guide Jeff and the driver Stanley in the morning. Jeff was very friendly, funny, and knowledgeable during our tour which made the whole experience great for us. We rode on a bus and ferry to get to most of our locations. It was very clean and spacious and we were provided with free water during our... More

The NY See It All! Premium Tour was an excellent way to discover New York City as a family. Our guide Shelley was both knowledgeable and humorous. The day flew by and we really felt like we'd experienced and learned as much about the city as possible in one day. The only thing about the tour experience that was less... More

We booked both the premium and see it all tours. Both tours were excellent, on both days the tour guides were fantstic, they had an amazing knowledge of the city and were able to answer all questions. We visited all the sights as stated on the website, the skip the line for the statue of liberty and Empire state building... More

We did the "see it all" tour our first day in NY just so we could get an idea of where everything was and what we really wanted to see in the next four days while we were there. It was exactly what we needed. Jeff was awesome and such a wealth of information for us first-timers in NYC. Not... More

The On Board tour is a good mid-point between being on a motor coach and an all-walking tour. Make no mistake – you will get in some walking, and at a crisp clip (it’s New York, whaddya expect?). Also, you gotta love a tour company that appreciates humor, hydration, and air-conditioning. Stanley, our tour guide, brought incredible zest, knowledge, and... 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.
