“great to see the city”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

wrap up warm it can get cold on the top of the bus and like your tour operator says dont stand up the traffic lights are very close to your head, its a great way to see the city and you can get on/off at most major areas of the city, 39 dollars get you the pass so that you can go up town or down town so you dont miss anything ,

“Loved it!”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

Visiters be ready to bundle up! It's really windy out on the boat cruise but so worth seeing all the sites, especially on the water! Take a tour by boat to get the full effect!

“Just like in the movies”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

Staying in NYC for 5 nights, we saw the skyline from Top of the Rock on our first day, from the Staten Island Ferry (free) on a bright and chilly morning and from the Brooklyn Bridge one even chillier evening! Everytime it looks beautiful and photoworthy - even for our first time, it feels familiar because of all the movies and does not disappoint!

“Free views of Manhattan skyline”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

The Manhattan skyline can be enjoyed in many different ways. What is really nice is that the free ones are about the best ! Unless you want to fork out for a helicopter ride, walking across the Brooklyn Bridge or taking the free Staten Island ferry provide great views of the skyline. Of course, there are different views from water taxis, Empire State Building, Top of the Rock, etc. but the best for me was from Brooklyn Bridge. I couldn't afford the helicopter ride !

“Sensational Night View”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

After a great dinner at Armando's , located in Brooklyn, we walked thru the steets of the Brownstones toward the river. As we walked toward the walkway railing: the Statue of Liberty was seen lit and in moonlight and toward the right THE BROOKLYN BRIDGE!!! The views were amazing and straight ahead were the city lights. I believe that every building in NYC remains with lights on throughout the night. Well worth a subway ride.
