Horrible - would not recommend
Mar 2021
We bought tour plus one attraction tickets online for the next day, but never received the confirmation email with our ticket codes. That was resolved fairly quickly with a phone call, but did not start me off with a good feeling. We got to the bus stop area and waited for almost two hours for a bus that never came. The website said that buses run every 15-30 minutes. I called after 90 minutes and the operator said that because of covid, the buses were only running every 60 minutes and because people were working from home, nobody was able to update the website with that information. (Insert giant eye roll here) At that point, we'd been waiting over well over 60 minutes, so we knew that was untrue as well. Buses from other companies kept going by, but never City Sightseeing. After a wasted two hours, we gave up and bought tour tickets from another company. In order not let our city sightseeing tickets be a complete waste, we attempted to use them for an attraction at the wax museum. The codes wouldn't scan and the person there said they were invalid. At that point, we finally gave up. We'd purchased city sightseeing tickets to go on the bus tour and go to an attraction and after attempting both, we were completely unable to use our tickets for either. When I called the next day for a refund, they said I could still use the tickets for up to a year. um my trip is now over, so I'm not sure how that's helpful at all. Then they said all refund requests need to be submitted in writing and gave me some pretty sketchy info about email addresses to use. Then I got the standard automated response back - saying no refunds at all, unless trip insurance was purchased. I was never given the option to purchase trip insurance, so I'm not sure what they're talking about with that. But it went on to say thatit could take weeks to get a personal response and that if a refund does happen to be approved, it would likely take months to process. The entire situation was so frustrating, a giant waste of time and money, and I absolutely do not recommend this company.

Worse Than Expected
Jan 2020
We purchased the 48 hr hop on/hop off + Top 6 attractions (only 5 attractions really,as the bus counts as 1 attraction.) This tour was a let down because they did not seem to have many buses running. Because of that we spent a lot of time waiting for the bus. Time we could have used sightseeing. The App they have for locating the buses is not very reliable - so you just guess that the bus will be at the stop for pick up.

On Sunday we had a live announcer, but had difficulty understanding him because he spoke so fast and was talking about buildings that were several blocks ahead instead of nearby. The recording we heard on Monday was much better than the live tour guide.

Another reason for the low rating was that the company dropped us off near battery park insteas of closer to Ferry Terminal, to get to the Statue of Liberty. We got passed by their competition while talking to the terminal.

I would recommend to the company is spend less money on advertising and guys selling tickets on the streets and more to get additional drivers and buses. If I was to do this type of tour over I would use their competitor who seemed to have buses running all the time.

Tip for those taking these tours. Try to be the first ones on as the buses get fuller down the line, limiting seating options.

Next time we go to NYC we will just purchase the City Pass and unlimited subway pass.

Big letdown
We purchased the one day pass. There was a huge queue to get on the bus. They did bring two buses at once so only had to wait about 15 minutes. We were given headsets when on the bus but they didn’t always work which meant you could not hear anything so kind of pointless doing the trip. When I did hear our guide I was not impressed as he was making some pretty inappropriate comments 90 percent of the time about certain races and didn’t tell us anything about NYC. Once we got off I found that the app didn’t work well as could not always see buses coming. Next bus we hoped on had not guide so no commentary at all and the app audio tour didn’t work for me. The bus also didn’t stick to the map so didn’t know where we were going. Overall I was really disappointed with the whole service and I also found the bus was pretty unclean.

Great option for a one day visit to NYC

We wanted to make the most of only having one day to spend in the city, the Hop on, Hop off ride was perfect. We enjoyed the open air top and felt like we really had a great tour of the popular attractions.

Great tour!

We purchased the 3 day on/off Uptown, Downtown, Brooklyn, night tour and ferry ride with ticket to a major attraction. We had time for all but the night tour and attraction and were very happy with the service and tour guides on all the tours - just wish the Brooklyn tour was as comprehensive as those in Manhattan - would have loved to see the Brooklyn Botanic Garden!
