Overview
Manhattan transforms into a city of lights as soon as the sun sets. Avoid crowded sidewalks and subways, and instead enjoy views of the NYC borough’s landmarks from the open-air top of a double-decker bus. As you drive over the Brooklyn Bridge, get panoramic views of the glittering Manhattan skyline reflected in the East River.

What to Expect
Your evening begins in Manhattan’s Theater District. Climb aboard the double-decker bus and head to the top level for unobstructed views of the city. As the sun sets, snap photos of popular neighborhoods, including Times Square, Greenwich Village, Chinatown, and SoHo. An onboard guide ensures you never miss a landmark and provides a wealth of information about each one you pass. Relax on the bus, as you pass the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, and the Manhattan Bridge illuminated under the night sky. On this tour, you avoid streets and subways that are notoriously crowded at this time of day. Continue across the Brooklyn Bridge for rare views of the Manhattan skyline shimmering over the East River. Around 8pm, end the night back at your centrally located departure point.

Total trash and waste of money. We toke the night tour and the bus was dirtier than the subway. The covered glass part on the upper deck was so scratched up you can hardly see. The tour guide spoke with a heavy European accent and was unintelligible. We emailed the company to

Bus does NOT meet at 777 8th Ave., but on 42nd st., between 8th and 9th ave (at the Port Authority bus terminal), so plan accordingly (up to a mile extra; can't be sure). I was never given a warning, so (I guess) I missed the bus. Just a note: still not clear whether the

So the tour told us to go to 777 8th street. We get there and nobody’s there. There’s signs that tell us to go to 42nd street between 8th and 9th and nobody’s there either. We asked some gray Line employees along the way and they said we had to buy another ticket? We basically
