This 24-hour hop-on hop-off New York City loop double-decker bus adventure lets you focus on a certain area of the city, or you can upgrade and access all the areas the bus covers, plus a hop-on, hop-off cruise and night tour. From downtown to uptown and Brooklyn, your guide offers interesting facts and points out famous landmarks and neighborhoods while you ride. 

If you choose the uptown loop, you can see attractions including Central Park, Fifth Avenue, Lincoln Center, the American Museum of Natural History, the Apollo Theater, Harlem Market, Museum Mile, and the Metropolitan Museum. While on the Brooklyn loop, you can pass by the Botanic Garden, Brooklyn Museum of Art, and the Antique Furniture District.

If you chose the Downtown loop, keep your eyes open for the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, Times Square, and neighborhoods such as Greenwich Village, Soho, the Financial District, Chinatown, and the Lower East Side. 

If you’re feeling adventurous and upgrade to ride on the hop-on hop-off cruise, then you can enjoy the sights of New York City from the water. Sail under the Brooklyn Bridge, stop right in front of the Statue of Liberty, and admire the rebuilt One World Trade Center.

Your upgrade also includes a panoramic night tour to see the city of New York ablaze with lights (not a hop-on hop-off tour). Upgrades also include your choice of admission to the Museum of the City Of New York or the New York Historical Society

No matter which loop you choose, you have the freedom to take the guided tour and hop off wherever you'd like.

Long needed vacation, enjoyed the sight seeing tour. All was really great, very expensive. Meaning food, Taxies outrageously over priced, Including demanding tips. Travel from Laugardia airport to Newyork New Jersey airport taxi fee, including a tip was $163.00 which was terrible. I would like to visit New York again but under reasonable prices.

We booked the 72 hour with 5 excursions. We rode the bus once due to how long it took and where to find the stops. The trains were faster and we saved money as we didn’t get to all 5 excursions

We booked the 3day tour which included 3 options of tours/dining etc. We enjoyed the tour itself but were very disappointed to find that the carriage ride in Central Park is no longer included by Gray Line even though it is still advertised on your site as an inclusion. We found the Gray Line staff on the streets misinformed on a lot of detail and the map we picked up on the bus was out of date as it also included the carriage ride as an option. We only found this out by going to the Gray Line office to query what we were told about the carriage ride by the operators at Central Park. Viator needs to make sure its tour information is up to date. Apparently this option has not been available for quite some time.

I think this company needs to improve the people that it hires for guides. There are seldom interesting stories told by those guides. Probably underpaid and bothered by the sun and long hours - even if they have interesting information to share, they are so tired and disinterested that they barely talk.

the tour guides are terrible, the cruise and the bus went on 4 different buses with 5 total tour guides they must not be paid enough, they were so boring. everyone on the bus had glazed over eyes. the guides were monotone and had no personality. we stopped listing to the guides just to stay awake. the bus was great, good way to see the city. wish the guides had more zest for life.
