“"Priceless"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

This is well worth the money, we paid for a four day ticket and used it every day. Took a trip over to Brooklyn which is worth the visit, it is so different from Manhattan. Jumped off to take a walk around Wall St, and when visiting the 9/11 memorial.

“A great way to get your bearings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

We bought the 72 hour ticket which enabled us to hop on and off all the available routes. These included Downtown, Uptown, Brooklyn, The Bronx and a Night tour. The buses are easy to locate and run frequently, stopping at all the most useful places. The tour guides are all very informative and friendly. We learnt alot from these tours and gained a good overview of the city, helping us to plan the rest of our trip. The best one for me though, was the night tour, which takes you over to Brooklyn to photograph the Manhatten Skyline. Our tour was timed to get there at sunset and I have some stunning shots from it. The trip back to Times Square is equally stunning, showing the city in it's fully glory.

“Grayline tour - good but could be better”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

the downtown loop - we had 2 guides and both were ok to fair
the uptown loop - we had 2 guides, one (Mike I believe) was really good and the other was terrible. So the information you receive depends on the guide - pointing out stores does nothing for me but the history and architecture info was great when we did get it. buses were good and routes were good. sat on top and only waited at most 30 minutes

“Perfect way to get around and see the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

The group I was with purchased tickets for the Gray Line hop on/off bus tour - all lines. As we only had 2.5 days in NYC we did the downtown, uptown and night tours. The bus stops at points of interest every 20 minutes from the time it starts to the last run. The tour guides we had were very knowledgeable and actually funny! We had beautiful weather which made it perfect for sitting at the top of the double decker. This is the way to get around!

“Cost effective, Scenic, Relaxing way to see the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

I purchased the tickets online through my work and got a good discount which made the tour good value for money. We got the multi-day, multi route including the boat tour of manhatten which were all informative and well organised. Using the bus to get around NY is also a good idea as they are frequent and go past most attractions. On the negative side was the queue to collect the pre-paid tickets from the Madame Tussauds, which was quite long and a little chaotic as customers jostled and tried to queue jump.
