Bought a three-day New York Pass. VERY much worth it. Plot your days out so you can be efficient. Pleased with how many things we were able to do with this one simple pass. BUT, like the entire city of New York, they will try to scam you into additional add on up charges that are *NOT* worth it! First... More

I love our last guy:-) You could tell he loved the city and the history. He loved what he did it was more then just a job. He was willing to talk with us and answer any ? We had.

City Sites provide clear advice and value for money for bus ride to the retail park, where schedule gives plenty of choice for timings. Ticket collection trouble free when we followed their advice about avoiding busy times.

We bought tickets 5 tours in 1, valid for 48 hours. At the first day we got off the downtown tour in Greenwich village, and was told we could hop on the bus at the same stop, we where there a long time before 5p.m. the bus never shows. It was 18 minus freezing degrees! Ended up taking the subway.... More

Nice easy journey by bus but get there early at the bus terminal to ensure a seat and line up early on the return as it can get very busy. Retail village itself was very good, probably twice as big as the retail parks in Florida but all at a more leisurely pace. Food hall was very busy and this... More

The bus! If you get the blue bus they are not great, older and the tour guides did not seem as good. The other factor is the tour guide, we did each of the 5 tours and it was hit and miss! The tour guides were better on the red busses (part of the same company as the blue) but... More

My adult son (who lives in NYC) and I (visiting from Virginia) had an excellent experience with the City Sights NY evening tour of NYC. The tour guide was excellent----truly knowledgeable, professional, enthusiastic the entire time, thoughtful, humorous, and concerned about our well being and comfort. He could answer even the arcane questions some other tourists ask. The tour includes... More

We booked a few different tours with City Sights. The evening Statue of Liberty Tour was wonderful. The weather could have cooperated a little more, but we still enjoyed it. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour very informative. Another tour was to an outlet mall in NJ. It was a clean bus and pleasurable, scenic drive.... More

We added this package onto the New York Pass, and got the 3-day pass. We picked up with tickets from Planet Hollywood, the staff sorting this turned up dead on 9am and unpacked whilst there was 8 of us waiting, no apology, or smile, just next. Didn't smile once, and was miserable. She put us off and didn't want us... 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.
