Unethical sales people! Was approached by a dishonest sales person who was deceitful about the route and how fast we could get to a destination. We never used our tickets because of the lie he told us about the time it would take. The only thing offered was 2 tickets to be used within 5 years. We don't like
in the area and do not want to gift them to someone else. Their terms state they refund for extraordinary employee complaints. Lying must be their ordinary way of doing business. DON'T USE! Check out the better business bureau website. They have numerous complaints and an F rating

More buses and more stops needed. It was awful and a compete waste of money. Their service is a complete fabrication. We ended up using uber for the majority of our stay so that we could get to sights in a timely manner. We saw lots of the other tour bus (Big Bus Tours) at least 3 times as many, We rode on a hop on/off bus one time, had to walk a mile to get to the stop and then wait 30 minutes for it to come,
and after all that almost couldn't even get on the bus it was full a few peope got off. The interior of the bus was unusable due to the way it was set up. The bus went to stop 1 and we were told that that was it and the bus wasn't running anymore and we would have to walk 3 blocks to get the night bus ( which doesn't make stops at other points) we were trying to get to the Empire State Building which was about 13-15 blocks away. My advice is to go uber they were usually their to pick us up within 5 minutes so you won't waste time waiting. I had bought four tickets with the Hop On Hop off Bus and it wasn't cheap. I spent less riding Uber even with 4 people. It was a very expensive (1) time ride. (do not waste your money)

I almost never write negative reviews but I feel compelled to share our experience because we spent so much time and money on these passes. And I don’t want anyone else to make the same mistake.

We purchased 3 48-hour passes.

Day 1: we hopped on one bus near Times Square which had basically no narration on the headphones. It played about 5 songs over and over. After hopping off, we used the app to use the live mapping and wait times feature. It said 20 min, which turned out to be 50 min. Not remotely accurate. Once aboard, it was the same issue as before with the narration. Isn’t the whole point of a tour to learn something about what you’re seeing? If we just needed a mode of transportation, there are much cheaper options.

Day 2: Jumped on the 10am uptown tour. It was the day before thanksgiving so obviously we expected some route detours due to the parade. Apparently this had not occurred to TopView because our driver ended up driving around in circles around Central Park West, 84th, Amsterdam, 86th, south (!!!) on Central Park West, back to 84th, back to Amsterdam, up to 88th and back to Central Park West. It took 2 hours to get from Times Square to the Apollo Theater. Only halfway around the route. Not because of traffic or unplanned road closures. But because the driver HAD NO IDEA WHERE HE WAS GOING. The driver was trying to go down residential streets, constantly honking at other vehicles. Everyone on the top deck was literally laughing at the driver’s incompetence and joking about how they hoped to get back before dark. We stopped at the cathedral to let a poor family of 5 with little kids stop to go to the bathroom. We waited for them. No one wanted to get off out of fear that another bus wouldn’t come along. It was such a joke. Eventually we got cold because this bus didn’t have the transparent winter topper that was advertised. So we went downstairs which had an overpowering smell of diesel fumes and we did our best to peer through the advertisement wrapping on the side of the bus. We could have done that from a city bus for $2.75. Instead, we paid $210.

Night 2: Reluctantly, we got on the scheduled 7pm night tour bus leaving Times Sq west. We boarded at 6:50. The busway close to full but we sat and sat and sat. The customers were getting frustrated and angry, including us. 6 people left and asked for refunds (not sure if they got them). Later, at 7:23, One worker came upstairs to count open seats. One female customer asked him, “how much longer until we leave?” The worker snapped back, “soon” in a very snarky way. Well, another 15 minutes passed. I assume the workers were trying to sell every last seat — understandable except that you had 75 or so paying customers having a terrible experience as they waited until 7:38 to finally leave. 7:38! The “tour” — not really a tour because guess what, still had no narration. Passengers were pointing out landmarks to their fellow passengers.

I completely discourage people from purchasing tickets to TopView. Surely there are other, better ways to explore NYC.

To summarize: TopView is a poor value due to a poor product with poor planning and poor execution.

Congratulations! You hit the trifecta.

Horrible service!!!

When I purchased tickets for my family of five I was told bus stops every 20 minutes. Waited 45 minutes at the stop in front of our hotel (Riu Times Square, NY) and when finally a representative stopped by he told us that the stop was closed that we needed to go to another stop. Walked 12 minutes and waited another 45 minutes to get on the bus. That said we lost a restaurant reservation and got charged $70 for no show.

When trying to find more stops the representatives on the street mentioned in three occasion stops were closed and last stop was at 5pm.

We only used the bus one time.

3 of us purchased the 72 hour pass.
We found there to be a lot of stops to get on or off.
Staff was helpful and on-site at stops. We rode several times including the night tour.
We only waited once for a second bus when the first one was full. We really enjoyed it!

Practically impossible to get on a bus, the audio doesn’t work and when it does there’s almost no narration. Most employees don’t care once you already have a tickets. Really bad experience

I paid a lot for the ticket and the bus was always so crowded and the speaker didn’t work so I had no idea what was being said. I asked for an extension of my ticket so I could take the tour again and the company waited 2 weeks to provide it, by which time I’d obviously left. Poor customer service!

My family and I were visiting NYC the beginning of June 2021. We were approached in Time Square by a salesman for Top View Sightseeing. We thought It would be a cool experience to see the city on a tour bus, however we had members of our family with breathing issues that would need to be in an air conditioned vehicle, or they could have a health emergency. I explained this to the gentleman, who assured me It was air conditioned and would be fine for our family members. After a short walk we get to the bus and find out that It is in fact not air conditioned and is over 110 degrees on the inside of the bus. We spoke with the driver who told us It wouldn’t be safe for our family members with breathing needs, and to contact customer service. We walked off the bus and contacted the number for the company. The girl we spoke with was very apologetic, and told us to put this information in writing and email to the company. She let us know the refunds are processed 2x weekly and we’d have no issue getting It due to the circumstances. I sent in an email with this information, to which I received an automated reply. In total, I emailed the company 7 times. Some responses were automated, some promised to escalate my issue, others promised to send my email to the refund department so It would be handled. This wasn’t small change, we are talking about 325.00 for a family of 5. I did call in several times and leave messages with representatives who promised to have a manager call me back. Those calls never came. I was finally able to reach a manager today, 7/19 after another call in to try to reach someone. She was incredibly rude, unhelpful, and when I asked for her name she sat the phone next to her and was silent. I had to call back and ask the customer representative for her name, which was Marvalee. She did tell me that they offer no refunds because of a hot bus. I explained I completely understood, However that we were sold the tickets with the promise of an air conditioned space for my relatives. She told me that even if the “sales representative was deceptive they don’t offer refunds and that’s their policy”. I was floored. Not only were we lied to in order to get us to buy the tickets, but we were told by the bus driver It was unsafe conditions for my family members and he instructed us to leave the bus. I called in and was promised a refund that I’ve been chasing for nearly 2 months. I would not recommend this company to anyone.

Marketing misleading : most of the staff rushed or untrained : bus passed popular spots due to being over capacity : “included options” were impractical - Ferry tickets went from a terminal not included on the tour , bike tickets did not include required helmets or insurance . Overall very poor experience .
