Tour was rushed. The tour guide practically double timed from one place to the other leaving no time to take pictures for fear of losing him. 10 of us we left behind on Staten Island even though we were all at the prearranged meeting place on time. Some attractions were skipped with no explanation.

I had to take the cab from Jersey to Newyork city, which tour company paid(which was nice) but I got the seats behind the driver and could not... More

Booked the Premium See It All tour and it is a great way to see the city in a short amount of time. Our tour guide Tom, and our driver Ricardo were wonderful --- extremely professional. Our group was about... More

I had researched numerous bus tour companies, and had thought about going with an open top double decker hop on hop off bus, but I decided to go with OnBoard instead. And I am SO GLAD that I did! Our tour guide, Brooklyn Jim, did a fantastic job... More

I booked this tour for our first day in NYC as I wanted my Mum to see as much as possible in the short time frame. I had been to NYC once before - but I saw so much & gained way more knowledge from taking this trip. Our guide Matt was great, any question you asked - he knew... More

These hop on - hop off tours were very variable depending on the guide on that particular vehicle. Some were quite uninteresting, whereas others thought out their strategy well and had the audience eating out of their hands. One such example was of a young man who entertained us to a rendition of New York, New York and had the... More

Our Guide Dave (Roth?) was absolutely fantastic. His knowledge of the history, architecture and local politics made the city come to life for our group of first time visitors. Dave was intelligent, funny and gregarious. The tour's pace was perfect, we got to see all the highlights and Dave offered fantastic advise for moving about the city and enjoying all... More
