Was surprised how great this was! Scott and Jack had us laughing the whole time. I can’t wait to do it again.

75 minutes of fun! We met up on a cold night and boarded the beautiful coach. Our hosts were energetic and fun. Lots of great facts about NYC that kept us informed about the city as we rolled along.

Light hearted fun, with some very unexpected interaction with "passers by". 2 great guides, who made my sons birthday very special by incorporating it into the show. He left saying "can i come back and do this every day". Really really glad we did this.

The side-on seating allows for comfortable viewing and the street performers are really entertaining.

My partner and I have just returned from a trip to New York for my 50th, and we did this on our first day!! You sit theatre style in tiers on the coach so you all look out onto the streets, which become your stage....More

From the two annoying hosts who chatted constantly about trivial rubbish to the lights failure during the last section this tour was a complete waste of money... I expected a lot more interaction from the guides with the people on the bus and more "entertainment"...More

It was the first day in New York. Definitely right choice to take "the RIDE". Two passionate MCs make us fun!. If you visit very first time in New York, this is mandatory tour!!!!
