We got a 24-hour pass to do a NYC hop on/off bus tour. We validated our tour late afternoon one day and did a loop. Then the next day we did more hopping on and off to see the sights we wanted to see. Our afternoon tour had a live guide--Steve--and he was great. Very knowledgable, very personal. He had... More

We did the 72 hour tour (the first and second day of our trip) and it was a great way to see the city and to get your bearings. We didn't do a lot of hope off. The tours took a couple hours so that was usually enough for us. Also you got 3 site tours and lots of extras.... More

The Hop On/Hop Off service provided by CitySights is definitely the way to go if you want to see the sights of New York. The staff in the main office were very helpful in guiding and aiding me in the purchase of the City Sights package that covered the attractions I had planned to visit.

This hoop on/off tours are great. There is no physical requirement other than being able to climb stairs to be able to enjoy the tour from the second floor of the bus.

There are dozens of tours and trips on offer here. Each of them that we chose left on time, covered the remit advertised and returned on time. The coaches were clean and the drivers friendly. The office is well ran with several staff on hand to answer any questions or concerns you may have. If your on the open top... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
