We visited NYC to see Christmas lights on Christmas Eve. What better way to see them than a guided tour? Mind you we were only here for one night. We were NOT looking for a standard NYC tour, just a tour of the Christmas lights in a magical city steeped in Christmas history. The tour was rushed, jumping on and... More

This is a great tour; a small group so you dont get lost in the corowd, and Jeff our guide gave was amazing. Not only was he knowledgeable about all our stops, but he gave us lots of advice for getting around, where the best places to eat are, and where to shop. He gets to know each of us,... More

We bought a 3 day pass with the Big Bus company, which we found to be a great way of getting around. We were able to get on and off the bus at designated stops so we could spend as much/little time as we wanted at the sites. Obviously there was different tour guides on the buses, one of the...

I am very satisfied with the tour we did over the weekend. I would definitely recommend doing your research and calling ahead to see who is your tour guide. We were fortunate that Jeff was our guide. He is really funny, spent time to get to know everyone, and gave great USEFUL advice on where to go eat, what to... More

We booked "see it all tour" which is quite expensive and not worth it at all. We did not get to see all places mentioned in the offered tour and other places we went to were very quick passes we did not even had a chance to take enough photos of the places we visited. Our tour guide was always... More

My wife and I met our two friends from Australia in NYC for a week. I saw an advertisement for OnBoard Tours. I loved the idea of a personalized tour in which the tour guide got off the bus with you at all the mini stops throughout the 5 1/2 hr tour. We saw all the major sites in the... More

Had a superb day with guide David and driver John. David has lived all of his life in New York and was able to share all sorts of insights into the city he was clearly proud of. They were where they said they would be, to pick us up in the morning - just across the road from the Sheraton... More

We initially scheduled this for our first full day in NYC but got Jimmy Fallon Tonight Show tickets... (Like winning the lottery! ) ; therefore, rescheduled for our next free day which was our next to last day. Jimmy, our tour guide, and his chicken Mascot, Reggie, did a great job with young and old alike. The chicken served as... 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.
