  • The Big Bus Hop On Hop Off was a nice way to see NYC, but I wish it would have been noted that the voucher I printed thinking it would save time wasn't that at all. The guys working on the one bus stop down the street from 34th street was not going to let my family and I on the bus for they said it was the wasn't the right paperwork I needed to get on bus. We would have to go to another location to get right voucher. It was a hassle! I could have just bought tickets at that location instead. That is the only complaint I have. Other than that, the bus guide was very imformative!!

  • the best - a great way to get a good overview of the city and to see so many things in a short amount of time -- we took all the tours - up town - down town - midtown - boat trip to the statue of liberty and around the island.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • The weather was a big factor leading to the one-star rating. Because it was snowing, no one disembarked at the stops, so every bus that did arrive and stopped was full with the exception of the open top seating section uncovered and exposed to the elements. There were long wait times--we waited for over an hour for a bus that we could accommodate 2 passengers. My husband had come down with a sever cold the day before we arrived and was on medication but we tried seating on the upper level on a bus that was almost covered on the top level. The seats that were available were under a leak from the roof there is no heating on the upper level, visibility from the windows were poor because of the snow and the cold. It was a good idea but I would suggest that on bad weather days that more buses be put in service to accommodate the people who have paid good money for a tour. Obviously, it was a financial bust for us but I did see other tour buses that were better equipped for tours in the event of bad weather that I would consider should I decide to revisit this idea.

  • The weather was not the greatest so it was nice to be able to spend the day on the buses riding all over the city. I went to places I would not have been able to cover walking. Makes me look forward to a longer trip next time. There was no time for hopping on and off and still seeing the large amount of the city that these tours cover. One needs more time and in the future I plan on more time and spending one day alone on the downtown loop,

  • A great way to see New York City and learn some facts that you would not have learned on your own.

  • We really enjoyed our Downtown, Uptown and Midtown tours. The guides were amusing and knowledgeable. Each had a slightly different emphasis, on the architecture, restaurants and everyday life in New York City which was interesting. We had a 2 day Deluxe ticket which was good value, including the Empire State Building. We were disappointed in the night tour though which didn't take us to see many of the best Christmas lights, for example Saks on 5th avenue. We had also planned to see something of Brooklyn but that tour was just a step too far in our 3 days. Overall highly recommended though.

  • Had a good experience with the Big Bus team. Most all employees were very friendly and helpful. Some of the tour guides were outstanding and the others were above average. We had a lot of detours due to the Rockefeller Christmas lighting and an event going on at the United Nations. This was out of Big Buses control. We chose Big bus based on their reviews and from others experiences on the competition. I would recommend Big Bus Hop-on Hop-off.

  • Best thing I did! got to see the whole city. I would totally recommend!

  • I would recommend this to anyone. The tour was the way to go, not only did we get to see everything, the hop on hop off saved us a lot of walking. The tour guides were very informative and sometimes funny, lol. We would absolutely do this again.
