We like to make a point of taking a hop on hop off tour on any trip to get our bearings in the city and get an idea of where else we might like to visit. The standard is always pretty high especially when the guide and driver work for tips. The same goes for the New York tour- it covers a good portion of the sights you might want to see including a drop off at the Ferry terminal where you can take advantage of the free Staten Island ferry to get a better look at the Statue of Liberty. I didn't come across and stand up comedian tour guides as we have done in the past but they were friendly and knowledgeable. The tickets are pretty decently priced and it is worth it to pick up the full package for $10 extra. Tickets are easily purchased from any of the street sellers in red waving their pamphlets at you.
