Not a reputable company
Sep 2020
We bought tickets for a tour on 9/11/2020 and the company was not even running busses even though they had tours listed online the day of the tour. When we went to catch the tour we could not find any busses and after calling the company they told us they were closed because of the pandemic. After trying to get a refund they said sure it would be a few days. We called a few weeks later and they said refunds were taking longer and we would for sure have one by 10/16 which would be 5 weeks since we booked it. Today (coming up on 7 weeks later) still no refund and when I called they said I would get it soon. So frustrating that their website would even allow tours to be booked if they are closed and now still no refund

Take your money and dont provide buses or service
Feb 2020 • Family
For every block there are at least 4-5 people from this company trying to sell you a ticket.
There are 2 buses!
The wait is at least 30-45 mins for a bus.
There are no tour guides.
The queues are insane and then when you complain no one takes accountability!
This is one company to avoid.
We even got thrown off a bus as there were more people wanting to go downtown and we were going uptown.
Some guy called Elton decided to just cancel our tour (despite a 40 min wait!) and use the bus for the downtown passengers!
I have NEVER ever experienced such a scam and a shambles.
Please don’t waste your hard earned money!

Top View Bus Tours- Awful experience
Dec 2019 • Couples
We were recently sightseeing in NYC. There many people on the streets hawking bus tours. We booked with Top View and we're very dissatisfied. Only one window was clean enough to see out of. It was quite cold outside so no one used the outdoor upper deck. The buses heater did not work so we we freezing most of our 2 hour tour. This bus should've been pulled out of service but, was not. This company was more interested in taking our money than making the tour a great experience.
I hope no else has our experience. To be safe, DO NOT book a bus tour with Top View.

Don't waste money on the Grayline Downtown tour!
Oct 2019
We tried two different 'tour guides' on this bus tour. Gave up on the 2nd guy 1/2 way through the tour and took the subway back to Times Square. We could have gotten more information from the internet. The audio is poor and tour guides don't seem to care about your experience at all. I suppose it's a good deal if you're just looking for transportation to take to around Manhattan.

Average tour interesting but not outstanding
Aug 2019
We went with Top View tours and did the two day multi tour, boat ride in NYC. Was fine but we noticed that the Greyline and Big Bus tours used live tour guides to inform on each area, Top View used recordings which were ok but not always inline with where the bus was. Couldn't ask questions to a recording. Side note if you walk away price quoted keeps getting lower for more options.

Aggressive personal experience
Jul 2019
Before the tour started, we chose our seats on one of the buses. They needed to fill up both buses so they asked for people to move. Even though they said it was voluntary, the tour guide proceeded to get aggressive with the only two Asian tourist groups, including us, on the bus by basically forcing us off. We felt threatened to switch buses. We didn't feel like the tour was worth it afterward.
