We booked this tour for our first day in New York, so we were a little jet-lagged at the start; but it was so worthwhile as it allowed us to find our bearings, and then plan which of the "sights" to return to in our own time and discover more fully. Our guide, Geoff, was a mine of useful information,... More

Our tour on October 18th with guide Sheldon Lapidus was superb! He was so knowledgeable and had so many interesting facts and stories of the city. Great personality and funny! Would highly recommend. He also does private tours. Contact him at bestnytours@gmail.com.

We had a wonderful tour with OnBoard! The weather was terrible the day we did it but Jimmy, our tour guide, made up for it by entertaining us the entire time. Very knowledgeable about the city and he had us laughing the whole day. This tour includes a lot of places first timers to NY should visit and learn about.... More

Frustrating navigating through their website as I had to do a few e-mails before I fully clarified what was included in the ticket prices. We purchased the two tour deal, Premium & See The Best, $182.50 USD pp as there is a $10.00 booking fee on top. Living in New Zealand, it would have been good if I could have... More

There were several in our group of 6 that hadn't seen NYC before. Ryan was phenomenal. I have been on many tours. This was by far the best tour I have taken of the city. Ryan shared the history, the background and his first hand knowledge. I would highly recommend this tour.

The tour promises The training is weak. The guide explained mainly on real estate prices in the city. I expected a bit more, history, architecture, trends and more. I was disappointed. Still, we visited all the important sites in the city.

Jeff was our tour guide and he was funny and informative. He really places you in the mindset of 9/11 victims and he gets you around quickly and organized. Kelly was the driver I believe. No nausea :) we saw SO MANY sites. We were exhausted by the end. About an 8 hour day. Stopped and got lunch. Just FYI.... More

We took a 10 a.m. See It All tour on our first day in the city and were we glad we did! Ryan has to be one of the most interesting and informed tour guides I've had anywhere. We were able to see and learn so much about NYC, its history, architecture, notable residents, 9/11 stories (including Ryan's own). Everything... More

Our tour guide Ryan was phenomenal! He was informative and entertaining. Our driver Craig was also great. The premium tour is definitely a full day of sightseeing and by the end of the tour you are pooped! The only thing I would recommend changing is more time at Ellis Island; 20 minutes is nearly not enough time.

Thank Debbie B

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.
