The buses were regular and efficient. The guides, particularly Tom and Gregory were outstanding. We learnt more about NYC than we could ever hope too and the value for money was great

Took the tour during our first ever NYC visit over a long weekend, got the more reasonable multi-day price and the tour really covered the highlights.

We chose the first bus to woodbury to arrive in time for the opening. The bus did not go directly to woodbury as described, but in fact stopped at numerous locations to pick up other passengers throughout NYC, this was not included in the description, and I had specifically asked the sales clerk who did not mention this. The journey... More

The hop on hop off 2 day bus ticket is a value for money way of orientating yourself with NYC. We did 3 of the tours and had very humorous informative guides. We visited at New Year for a week and the queues were pretty long if you went to the first stop, but we walked to the previous bus... More

CitySights NY was the best way to get the Hop-On Hop-Off bus ticket. They run specials during holidays throughout the year which saves you even more money.

Amazing 2 days price for this tour. Covers full of New York including Brooklyn. Also you get night tour which was amazing. In our passes cruise to Statute of Liberty was also included which was a bonus. Very convenient and the guides are really very informative. We had a good time and got to see most of NY landmarks.

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.
