Thoroughly enjoyed our 90 minute sunset cruise. The guide was very knowledgeable and we leaned a lot about New York and the areas nearby.

We purchased the 48 hour tour package and it was perfect. It was my first time in the city. So we took one bus around much of the town to get a feel for the city. We were also able to do the boat tour and the night tour. The tour guides were friendly and knowledgeable. It was a wonderful... More

Took the 8 hour bus, boat, light walking Manhattan tour which included lunch in Little Italy and Harbor Cruise. Loved the whole experience, had an excellent tour guide (Serge), thoroughly enjoyed it and just what we wanted, an extensive tour that allowed us to see as much of New York city as possible in one day. Highly recommend it especially... More

I got the 48 hour tour pass and it was great. Access to several tours and it included a ferry tour, pass to a museum, and a comedy club. The guides were great. We also used this as trasnportation to get to and from locations. Saved us even more money. Its worth the money. You can make the tours as... More

Having taken many boat cruises, including very pricey ones around Manhattan, I expected to have a lovely evening, but this was spectacular! Our guide was wonderful - lots of interesting and useful information, both historical and current, clearly always learning more about the sites, very friendly, very engaging. The boat is comfortable, both downstairs and on deck. When my friend... More

I got tired and my decided we need to take a Big Bus ride through New York. We got down on the first floor where it was cool. We enjoyed it a lot. We got to travel all over NY and took a boat trip out to Statue of Liberty. That was awesome!

I appreciated how easy the maps were to understand, along with having people by each bus stop to clarify! Some tour guides were more informative than others but each one brought a sense of fun to their tour. I much preferred using these buses to get around the city than a simple taxi. I also enjoyed the comedy show I... 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.
