A fantastic thing to do in New York. Really good fun and the tour guides (and others) were excellent. I won't give away the surprises. Only negative is the price. $80 rack rate is probably too much so look for vouchers or do it as part is a New York Pass or similar.

I can honestly say this was the highlight of our trip. It was entertaining and different. Not sure if it was worth the price but we had bought a New York pass which allowed us to use this as part of the deal. It was great fun and the two entertainers Stuart and a lovely young lady whose name I... More

All right people, this was the perfect tour we did on the Halloween Night. It's already funny and entertaining in a normal evening (are there normal evenings in NYC?) but imagine a cinema seating style bus where you can watch performances on the streets, sing along with karaoke and out there is full of people getting crazy as zombies, witches...

We booked this as we had been led to believe it was an "entertainment" experience. Well it was definitely an experience but not one I'd like to repeat. We were held for 20 minutes in a queue before boarding the bus (for no apparent reason). When onboard the two hosts were quite cringy in their delivery and took great pleasure... More

Enjoyed the time on The Ride enormously. Great fun and a great laugh. Well planned and very entertaining. I didn't know what to expect and I won't spoil it for you. Be prepared for a novel hours entertainment.

Soooo fun! My 17-yr-old daughter and I did a 5 day mom/daughter excursion and took The Ride on our last night. We did one of the night time slots as someone had said it was better. The day probably would've been fun too but night was cool since you could also see the lighted city. Either way, you can see... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
