Incorrect tour info
Cheri_V, Mar 2024
We showed up 15 min early looking for the bus at the meeting point. I messaged the company right away with no response until two days later. Was told later that was not the correct meeting point even though that was the information given for the tour. I asked for a refund and they denied it.

We were celebrating my 7 year old grandson's birthday and decided to take the night tour of NYC as the last event of our vacation. Shelley and Libni were both could hear the passion in her voice!!

First time in NYC. It was fun! Easy to see the city and get my bearings. Would recommend to others. Thanks!
Excellent Night Tour, Excellent Driver!!

Sean Hanson was an incredible, enthusiastic, fun tour guide during the Night Tour. Karl W. was our safe, focused driver who did an exceptional job, especially with protests occurring in the city. They both had our safety and satisfaction in mind during the whole tour!!! Sean’s knowledge of the city was quite impressive and his sense of humor entertained all of us! Would highly recommend the Night Tour for all visitors to the city!!!! It was enjoyed by all of us, including our 9 year old daughter!!!!

Our least favorite thing we did on our trip to New York. The guide spoke broken English, the earbuds or plug-ins didn't all work. We were in the covered section on the top, which was good. Cleaning the windows would help a lot.

I would have liked it more if the bus took us not just to the boroughs but also past more landmarks, like the Empire State building. We saw it only from a distance. The tour guide was very loud; repetitive jokes

We arrived early and inquired if we had to wait until our allotted time. The attendant told us no, he checked us in and we got on the bus. Guide was extremely well informed but he was at times hard to understand because he talked extremely fast and slurred his words.

The tour guide was funny. Entertainer. Great tour. Did not like the idea that I already had ticket confirmation in my hand and I still have to get it replaced with a different ticket.

Shelli S, Nov 2017
It was a wonderful tour once it began, but having to show up so early and wait so long in line standing, can be taxing on the elderly and young children. the drive over the Manhattan Bridge and all the lights, is amazing

YOKO_M, Sep 2023
夜のツアーに参加しました!タイムズスクエア近辺まではとても楽しかったし、素晴らしかったです。 途中雨が降ってきてみんな室内に入りました。 道は渋滞。暗くて大した見所もなく。バスの中が 蒸し暑くなっても空調もつけてもらえず気分が悪くなりました。 また、似たようなツアーがたくさんあり、待ち合わせ場所もほぼ同じで、集合場所がわからず乗り遅れそうになりました。 ギリギリで見つけられたので良かったのですが、地図などをつけるべきだと思いました。 英語が堪能ではないので、注意書きの隅々までチェックできなかった。 後、時間が長すぎした。 昼間とは違うので、花がさやかなところだけ短く回る方が良かった。

La visite etait bien mais on promet visite en français et rien juste la premiere phrase et apres rien. Tres decevant car pas tout compris des commentaires du guide.☹☹😢

René R., Dec 2017
Die Nachttour war gut obwohl nach fünf Minuten gleich erst mal der Bus kaputt ging. Bei den Tagestouren sah das ein wenig anders aus. Zunächst war der BigBus-Mitarbeiter nicht willens oder in der Lage unseren Voucher in Bustickets zu tauschen, sodaß wir erst in das Servicebüro mußten. Eine Stunde sinnlos Zeit verschwendet. Die restlichen Stunden haben wir dann mit den Bussen im Stau gestanden und die Abgase der anderen Autos eingeatmet, besonders wenn ein Truck direkt daneben steht, ein Traum. Die Uptownroute war die totale Katastrophe. Für das Stück 5th Avenue entlang des Central Parks haben wir eine anderthalbe Stunde gebraucht. Dort lohnt es sich am Nachmittag auszusteigen und zu laufen aber dafür braucht man kein Busticket. Was die Qualität der Guides anbetriftt, dort reicht die Skala von ganz oben bis ganz unten. Nachttour sehr gut, Uptown-Loop ganz unten. Der Typ hatte nicht nur eine Fahne nicht in der Hand sondern auch eine offene Hose, unter aller Kanone.

From $62.10
