Discover the magical atmosphere of New York’s most iconic landmarks lit up after dark during this combined walking and bus excursion. There’s no better way to get a sense for the 24-hour energy of this fast-paced world capital than by seeing its most famous sights illuminated at night.

Begin your trip at Times Square in the evening, boarding your coach bus and meeting your guide. Make your way by bus to your first stopping point, the city’s beautiful Grand Central Terminal, for a guided inside tour.

Jump aboard the bus for a sightseeing trip through the glowing nighttime streets of Lower Manhattan and Midtown. Explore famous upscale areas like SoHo, Tribeca, and Greenwich Village, pass by the iconic Washington Square Park and see other Big Apple attractions, listening as your guide shares details about the city’s history, celebrity residents and key landmarks.

Lastly, head to the High Line to learn about the origins of this incredible addition to New York’s green space from your guide, discovering its former role as a freight railway that was abandoned for decades before being transformed into the urban oasis you see today. Join your guide on a quick stroll, offering a chance to admire its cutting-edge design, a landscape of local plants, open green spaces, and public art.

Great way to see the city and tourist attractions. It's roughly 3.5 hours long, you hop on and off with the tour guide who tells you facts and interesting bits and pieces you may not find out otherwise.

Bus tour

I loved it. At first I thought we just drive around the bus with a tour guide explaining all the landmarks, but no we actually park, get off, and walk around at everyplace we stop it. I really loved this about the tour. We went to little island, a mall, Wall Street, a pier near the Brooklyn bridge, and grand central terminal. All in the span of 3 hrs. I really recommend this, I learned a lot. And it exposes you to some places you probably never heard about.

This was an extremely interesting tour of areas I have not seen in all my trips to New York. Our guide was very knowledgeable and accommodating. We were very pleased and could not have had a better experience. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

Disappointing
Deborah_D
, Dec 2021
This was blah. Nice bus but saw very little. Dropped in some park on the river which I guess we were supposed to appreciate—“Little Island”. We all missed the point. Another stop was a pier to take photos. Another stop Chelsea Pier to shop I guess. Short walk on Wall Street was nice. Tour guide was waaaay below average. Lame jokes and some remarks were distasteful. Had almost no information about the city. All in all what was supposed to be 4 hour tour of city lights at night turned into 2 and a half hour full ride. Would not recommend particularly at this price. Can do much better!

Not as expected
ClaireGehlig
, Dec 2021
The tour was ok but did not always account for traffic so there were moments of quiet when the guide could have filled with some facts about New York in general. We were a little disappointed that we did not go to China Town or Little Italy as advertised and understandably we did not go past Rockefeller Centre as the roads are closed at this time of year. We did go to Pier 17 and the new Little Island. The tour is a great way to see New York but don't go on the trip with expectations on what you will be able to see
