The guides we had were great. They were entertaining, funny and, most of all, informative. I could go on and on about how wonderful the guides were, but they can't undo the rest of the experience. First, we went to a "visitor center" listed on the voucher to pick up our tickets. We walked to the address listed and found... More

My son and I took a tour with City Sights. It was an excellent experience made better by the excellent job that Martin Kelly did. His knowledge of the city was excellent, and added a great deal to the experience

Open top buses are not an easy way to sight see in a very cold January but I found the local guides to make the cold bearable. Their warmth and love for their city and for the job make it a pleasure compared with pre-recorded digital robots. We also found them friendly and wanting to interact with tourists and always...

Absolute waste of time you pay for a ticket and then get told your not aloud on the bus or the next one and so on, they just tell you to walk to the next stop and when you get there they send you walking to the next stop so you just pay to walk, waste of time and money!

Are these buses held to the same standards as MTA? The exhaust was disgusting. Difficult to enjoy trip when you are polluting everyone's air.

There are several bus companies in New York operating similar businesses, selling on the street - we were burned by this one. Offered an economical package of 5 days we accepted, starting the next day. The deal was to last until New Years Eve - on that day we waited, with others, at a bus stop - but no buses!... More

Hi, myself and my fiancé travelled to New York From Ireland. We did the two day hop on hop off tour. During the bus journey's there were some very good tour guides like the lady from Barbados and the bus Driver surname Breen!!! However we did the Brooklyn night tour on 7th Jan at 7.30pm and had a terrible experience.... More

Elegimos por error los buses azules del CitySights. Era un día muy frío y se demoraban mucho en pasar: por cada bus azul pasaban 5 o 6 rojos. Y como si fuera poco, la mayoría no tenía techo, en un día que nevaba. El audio no coincidía con lo que veíamos. En general los guías se sentían cansados y aburridos.... More

At the start, I will say that if you are fit and don't mind the weather, this company offers a cheap tour package that like others, takes you round NYC. BUT- if you are disabled/walking impaired, avoid this company like the plague! I am in a wheelchair, but can walk a few yards with crutches, and the salesman told me... More

I don't know how to drive, so my friend recommend this bus service to me. It's convenient for visitor like me to go around. I bought the tickets to Woodbury outlet. Using the coupon attached, I can redeem a coupon book which can help you save a lot in outlet.
