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 of all, our guide was AWESOME!!! Sheldon (Shelly) along with our driver, Melvin got us expertly around the city. We did the new "Premium See It All Tour". While it was great to get to skip the the lines (for the most part) to the Statute of Liberty and Ellis Island and to visit those sites, time did not... More

There are so many tours of New York on offer that it was difficult to choose. After much research we decided to book the See It All OnBoard Tour for out first day in NYC. Well this turned out to be the best decision ever. On our first morning we duly turned up at the designated tour meeting place, the... More

We have been to the US, 2 adults, 3 kids, many times but first time in New York. We only had 2 days at the end of a longer US trip so booked an Onboard tour to cram the sights in to 1 day. Best money we spent. 6 hour tour and we saw most of Manhatten and went on... More

This is a great tour up and down Manhattan with quick jaunt to the East Side too. Our tour guide, David Roffe, was brilliant. An old School New Yorker and witty raconteur! We hit Rockefeller Center, St Patricks on the East Side in Midtown. Swooped up Bwy to the Dakota and Central Park South to visit Strawberry Fields. Downtown to... More

Our first day of tour was not complete due to construction on 5th ave. I know that was unexpected. But then the last sight we seen was The Empire State Building where the tour guide told us was the end of the tour and instead of returning us to our original starting point, showed us where the subway was and...

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.
