My friend and I visited New York in November and went on a tour with City Sites which we booked in the UK. It was the most comprehensive and professional tour I have been on. It took 6 hours and we literally were taken all over. A walk through Central Park with full explanations of special places. Harlem where we... More

I booked a 4 day package with city sights online before I left the UK, this included, woodbury common, empire state or top of the rock entry, a night tour, hop on buses and hop on boat which goes over to Brooklyn, It was easy to arrange and very good value for money about £70 each.

I'm on a layover from a Canadian flight that I extended to a short vacation stay. This was part of package I bought although I did have to upgrade.I've been on 3 tours and will go on a couple more. John Berquist and the NHL fan who did the city lights tour were superb.

Dont know if it was the wrong time to do it but instead of taking 2 hours for one of the "loops" it took approx 3 and a half. I must admit the guides are worth every penny with their great and often humerous patter. However, if you have the time and are fit enough, the best way to explore... More

We paid in advance for the 72 hour pass that included the attraction pass for 3 days. The guy I exchanged my voucher with tried to get me to upgrade to catch the "more frequent" red bus too, saying that the blue buses ran only ever 30 mins. I didn't purchase the upgrade, and that turned out to be a... More

My wife and I decided to take the night tour, after being guaranteed that the bus had a cover on the top level (as it was extremely cold). The bus turned up with no cover on the top, so we decided we would sit down the bottom instead, we boarded the bus only to find it covered in rubbish, public... More

We had the 48 hours hop on hop off ticket. We went on the Downtown, Uptown and Harlem tour on the first day, and each guide was very informative, friendly and funny. My favourite was the Night Tour that was 3 hours long and no option to hop on/off. Not a problem as this was advised as we got on.... More

We did the Brooklyn Bus Tour and it was so so cold. But we had the best tour guide ever in Larry Love. This guy needs a raise. He is funny, informative and he even remembered me and my husband from last year when we took the uptown tour. Great bus tour...
