OnBoard New York Tours operates the Only Comprehensive Guided Tour of New York City. Our tour guides hop off the shuttle bus with you at each attraction, showing you the city in detail. Smaller groups make better tours, so we limit group size on our tours and use smaller shuttles that allow more interaction with your guide.

Our guides were NYC natives and truy characters. Very well informed about NYC and themselves. I feel we were given as much info about their personalities and personal views as we were about NYC. That's not what we paid for. We paid for the Best and Premier Tours. Of course we were expecting to do things like go inside St.... More

My group and I came from Australia with this being our first time in the US and New York. The actual tour itself was informative and well delivered even when it was a wet day. However they have a very poor business view on customer service, you see with no fault of ours but their booking system we received an... More

The 8 hour all day tour gave us a wonderful overview of NYC. The air conditioned bus was delightful on a hot July day! The tour guide was very entertaining as well as exceptionally informative on the history of the city. We had a great day!

Easily, as mentioned on "ONBOARD's" site, we met up with their reps at the designated area. RYAN and his great driver, took us expertly around the city, exactly as mentioned on their website. Ryan's knowledge and personal insight, made the tour thorough, fun, informative and exciting. We would use this group again, we recommend them and would personally ask for... More

While we knew going in that this tour was packed full of places to see in a short amount of time, we were not prepared for the hurry-up that ensued. Thumbs up - 1. The bus was new, clean and the ac worked great!. 2. The guide Brooklyn Jim was very personable and gave lots of interesting details of the... More

I did this exact tour last year in April and wanted my family to experience it. However today exceeded that expectation! Sheldon was an amazing tour guide. I wish we could have kept him for the rest of our stay! Sheldon has years of knowledge and experience. I was taking in every word. He has a great sense of humour... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
