    On a recent trip to New York, we decided to get a feel for the City by taking this bus. Not knowing that our son had also purchased a three day pass for us which included the night tour. the trip was great but as I am a trained engineer, I couldn't not notice that the aluminium straps for the roof were a bit poorly made on the buses we took a ride on - I would have got a kicking if I had made them! Anyway, besides this, the trip let us find our feet a few thousand miles from home and came in handy for returning to our hotel from various trips and visits to the sights and attractions of New York...

    I bought a two day pass that included a night tour and liberty cruise and went on every tour available on the pass. Great way to explore the city! Tour guides were very informative. The only negative is the hop on stops are not well marked. And, don't lose the paper ticket they give you when you first board!

    None this trip, we never found the bus stop at a time when the bus was still operating. Very busy, couldn't conform to the bus' schedule.

    The bus is a great way to put some perspective to New York which is so huge. The architecure is incredible both in historical areas and the newer parts. Chris was a super guide, both knowledgeable and witty.

    EVEN THOUGH i ALREADY HAD MY TICKETS, i STILL HAD TO SEEK OUT THE OFFICE AND EXCHANGE FOR TICKETS. The bus was full twice in arow had to wait till 3rd bus wwasting my time . The tour guide was very nice and informative

    Way too long of a wait for buses. Sometimes couldn’ Get on because the bus was full. Many grey,Inez would go by us while we waited

    Traveled from Philly to NYC for the day. The bus was a great value and had many traveling time opening a for the day. It was convenient and comfortable. Will do it again in the future.

    For such a big city felt there could be more stops instead of having you walk to various places at each stop. bus guides vary helpful and knowledgeable

    I purchased 2 Classic Adult New York City Big Bus Tours Hop on Hop Off tickets through Viator....I still have all receipts and information for this transaction. The iternerary showed I purchased the 2 adult tickets for this tour $49.50 each for a total of $99 dollars.
    When I selected the blue get ticket button on the itinerary it displayed the adult ticket to be scanned at the bus. The displayed ticket indicated 1 adult ticket ONLY. I called Viator immediately and spent more than 30 minutes on the phone with a woman from a foreign country call center.
    She kept telling me she would take care of everything. She kept putting me on hold to get clarification from a supervisor. Then after a long time she told me... "Don't worry sir, Your ticket is the way all of them print out. Just show the tour bus guide the Itinerary and it will be fine".
    Well, it was a LIE. I got to the tour bus in New York City and the man said No, I must scan 2 separate tickets and this is only 1. Yes, I see you have paid for 2, but you were only given 1 ticket....
    You must purchase another ticket to ride the tour. So, I was forced to do so or we both could not take the Big Bus Tour....
    Viator Lied....
    Also s family got on the bus a stop or two later on the tour and told of having to purchase additional ticket because they too we not given all the tickets they had paid for over the phone.
