What to expect
With your voucher in hand, board at any bus stop along the route and head for the open-air second level or remain on the climate-controlled first level. Your guide shares stories about New York’s history and landmarks as you journey throughout the city (audio headsets with pre-recorded narration are also available in multiple languages). Stay on board for the whole route to see destinations ranging from Times Square and SoHo to the Statue of Liberty and the Flatiron Building, or choose to hop off and explore further whenever you wish. Your tickets are valid for 24 hours, so you have the freedom to design your own sightseeing itinerary. The cost of admission also includes tickets to the One World Observatory. As the tallest building in the western hemisphere, the skyscraper offers panoramic views overlooking the whole city. The optional All Loops upgrade includes further opportunities to discover, including a Brooklyn loop, an Uptown Manhattan loop, and a nighttime tour (the latter of which is not hop-on hop-off). This upgrade also includes entrance to the Museum of the City of New York or the New-York Historical Society, in addition to One World Observatory access.

NYC traffic makes this dodgy
Dec 2019 • Couples
Bought the two day hop on/off ticket. Took the Brooklyn tour day 1. Used the center city route first to access the Brooklyn route. Traffic in NYC makes the time of the stops random and not really adherence to a schedule. Realize that if you do this around Christmas time, NYPD routinely shut down roads around Times Square and you should expect extreme delays and detours. We never even got close to the origination point and had to get dropped off several blocks from where we expected. And over an hour later than when we expected.
Lastly, one two of the routes, the tour guides were very good. On the center city route, the tour guide barely spoke English and he was VERY aggressive in trying to hustle tips, shaking the “tip bag” in everybody’s face.
I thought it to be a truly NYC experience, my wife was not amused.

Pushy sales people who threatened us
Nov 2019
Really pushy sales people in Times Square. After being approached several time over a few days one of you sales people pushed it to far resulting in this review.

My family and I stopped to decide where we wanted to head for dinner. One of you sales people approached us and we told him we were not interested. He said to hear him out and we told him we were really not interested. He went on to state he was in a good mood and but he might just smack my wife. I asked him to go away and he raised a fist as if he was going to hit me and walked away.

If I ever considered going on you bus tour, I definitely will not now.

Allan made the tour better!
Feb 2019 • Couples
We wanted to see the sites with the observatory ticket included. My husband and I have been to NY many times. Always use the Gray Lines...their groupon is def worth it. only down side was having to go to their office to redeem the groupon. But it worked out as there weren’t too many in lines. Got on bus with Allan France. He was tremendous on so many levels. Although some may have been offended, he used the ‘teacher technique’, as I call it (as I was one) of getting everyone’s attention to continue his remarks. I was VERY glad of this, because I wanted to hear what he said. And although we have been on this tour in the past, he added things that I had never known before. He was personable, friendly, and professional. And the fact that he was a Vietnam Veteran added to the mix!

Nice Way to See New York City
Sep 2018 • Couples
The Gray Line Hop-on Hop-off tours is an excellent alternative to get to now the city of New York. Take the multiday tours and you will be able to see all the major attractions of NYC. If you get their attractions pass you get admissions to the different attractions and in some of them you will get priority admission.

Waste of Time
Aug 2018 • Family
This is about the hop-on-hop-off tour without the observatory:

We took the ride from 39th down to Trinity Church and back later on - it was a 4 hours traveling experience. First of all, it took several buses until we finally got on to one. Although we were advised to stay in the bottom part, for reason that there were no seat available in the open upstairs, we found 3 seats there without a problem. On the way back we sat in last row, which was strongly heated by we don't know what. With the 95+ temperature that was quite a challenge. Most of the time the bus was either standing or crawling on a little bit. It was pretty boring. The information given over a headphone system was asynchronous and lots of times referred to things that we had already passed. Definitely not worth the money. Take the subway or a taxi.

A great way to hear and see the sights
Allan France was amazing. We were planning to hop on and get off quite soon. But once he started talking. We decided to stay on. Absolutely amazing funny and passionate! It is worth asking when he has a tour.
He included extra Dutch anecdotes when he understood my husband was from the Netherlands! Thanks Allan

I highly recommend this to anyone that’s staying in New York more than 3 days. It’s pretty simple, you pay $64 for 2 days and you can hop on and off these buses that circle the Manhattan & Brooklyn areas. Some of the stops are Times Square, Empire State Building, Macy’s, & the 9/11 memorial and the Wall Street area. The only thing I didn’t like was how many times we had to stop and every time the bus stopped, they would have to check all the passengers tickets and that was so time consuming, also another thing I didn’t like there’s 3 different bus companies that run the same route, so hog literally have to make sure your at the right stop otherwise they won’t let you on.

Simiso Tour Guide
Feb 2018 • Couples
First trip we had Simiso and he was brilliant! Good laugh knew lots about the tour and made the whole bus enjoy the trip it was just a shame we were getting off so soon, some other tours were hit and miss with the guides or how interactive they made it we had a girl who I didn't catch her name but referred to herself and Halle Berry she again was very good and we spent about an hour going round the downtown tour with her. Would fully recommend booking in advance before getting out here but I must say the bus is a bit cheap and cheerful there are other companies who looked better equipped but that didn't bother us as we were on and off for the attractions rather than the tour.
