No idea why you would put film over all the windows so that you can’t see out properly!!!!! Was also on a bus with half a roof so choice was get really wet in the rain or see nothing inside.....waste of money.
well the experience I had was didn't get to be one that I rode on the tour that bus pass by a row before he got to the stop and we didn't get to ride and that was the last bus for the night. I'm working on the internet and trying to get in touch with these agents to try to get my money back because I called them the same time it happened and at this point I'm not received a refund
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!
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
