Great value for money with the Empire State Building Ticket included. Didn't have time to do the Boat trip but would of been even better value if we had.

The tour guide speaking through the Ferry Tour was fabulous! Educational and funny and even tells the annoying tourists with no manors to get outta the way! It's also a convenient way of getting around. We also did the Empire State Building which is just a must see for everyone. I wasn't super impressed that the lineup was huge and... More

I took the bus to woodbury... Paid more for the flexable ticket... Planned on returning with the last bus that was due to leave on 21:26... Found myself standing in line out in the cold (it was very cold) with about 30 people until around 21:45 with nobody telling us whats happenning... Very dissappointing...

The helicopter tour was great, the weather was gray but the visibility was long distance. of course it could have been better by night our by a sunny day, be we dont come to NYC often, maybe once in a lifetime, so this was really something of a moment for us. I learned that it might be soon the end... More

I bought the tickets to tour two people around who has never been to NYC. Granted, we went during a very busy season so there were more traffic and more people than normal utilizing these types of services. The lines for all the attractions were super long and we were not able to utilize the vouchers during the time period... More

Definitely recommend the twilight cruise, takes 90 mins and you see the Manhattan skyline, Brooklyn bridge, Lady liberty and much more. Only a 25minute walk from the Empire state building and very easy to find Pier 78. One of our highlights from our trip.

We chose the Free Style Pass for our three full days in the city. Though the waits for the buses at times were a bit frustrating (too full to get on or long line ups; weather wasn't the greatest) the overall price for the entire Pass was worth it. It allowed us to miss some extremely long lines at attractions... More

Let me start off by saying we have used CitySights NY before and it was a wonderful experience but this time was absolutely terrible. We had 7 people in our group including 2 that were in wheelchairs. We all bought the 72 hour passes along with upgrading to the "VIP" pass that was a complete rip off, so that was... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
