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.

Avoid this tour group if you are not American. Guide Shelley was the rudest man I have ever been unfortunate to met. He bullied our group from the beginning of tour to the end due to our country of origin - Australia. He deliberately targeted us, we have a great sense of humour but this was rudeness. Tour was eight... More

I did the 8 hour tour of NYC bucket ticking off major items. Meeting location was convenient. There were parts of the bus on our seat when we went to sit down, like panels. Tour guide was rude to our Australian group of ladies from the start targeting us. He even said that he was superior to us. Throughout the... More

Tour would have been better if there was a mike on the bus. Tour guide has to yell all doing tour. Learned some helpful information, but could have done without all his personal information.

I paid for a 51/2 hour tour . it started at 12:30 and ended at 2:45. I did not see anything I wanted to see except Apollo Theater and that was a joke, walk in and out of the store. I did not pay for a church tour and we went to 3 churches in those two hours and got... More

Met up with the BUS Tour, easy to find, limited to 35 tourists per BUS, which was nice. BUS was clean, driver friendly and guide was full of information. Exited the BUS at certain places with the tour guide and walked to see sites, re boarded the BUS for more touring. Went by ferry to the Statue of Liberty (very... More

Today we took the NY See It All! Tour with Stan. Great guide, easily navigated our group through the crowds to ensure we didn't miss a thing. Hit all the big attractions, and saw many more en route. Would recommend this tour for those short on time as we were. Thanks Stan!

My family took 2 tours with On Board, the See it All and See the Best. The tour guide on the See it All was absolutely the best. Very informative, organized, thorough with his information. The tour guide on the See the Best was the worst tour guide I have ever had and I have done a lot of tours... More

Had the worst tour I have ever been on today. If you are unlucky enough to be stuck with Sheldon for your tour director and you are a woman or group of women just ask for your money back now. Never, ever have I seen such blatant discrimination. Ruined our whole view of New York. Why would you have a... More

Folks please do yourself a favor and discount these subjective personal attacks. I am happy to speak with anyone about this group of ladies at your convenience. To say they were anything but destructive and derisive is simple incorrect. They spoiled a lot of the tour that 9 other parties paid good money to be on. I can be reached... More

As we had only one full day in New York, we decided to book a tour to maximise our time, and see as many attractions as we could. The bus was 20mins late, dirty, and there was a large piece of broken bumper bar (fender) at our feet. The tour guide "Shelley" (Sheldon) was very disrespecful to our group. At... More

Apparently the whole party of Australian gals who have an agenda are going to continue to smear the reputation of perhaps the most sort after Guide in NYC.. Any potential readers/clients who would like to speak to the other members of this tour I will do me best to get you in contact with them. I also suggest reviewing previous... 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.
