The hop on hop off tour of Manhattan was well worth the money.We bought our tickets very easily from a guy in Times Square. We opted for the 48 pass, which we made really good use of. If you make your first journey the evening tour of the city you can really get your monies worth from the ticket. One of our guides was a man called Brian who really brought the neighbourhoods we passed through to life. Some of the tour guides were real comedians. Save yourself some shoe leather and let the bus take the strain.
