NYC Tourists Bus Tour - Christmas


I am travelling to NYC with wife and daughter on the 13th December and I have 3 days to visit the city.

To maximize time/sightseeing we were thinking in getting a but tours and hip on/off as required, I am worried though that traffic will be terrible? will it be better using public transports?

Thanks a lot.

Its not the traffic its more the weather. I did the HOHO bus tour in August. We had lovely sunny weather and it was great to be on the top deck.

If you did it in December you are likely to be downstairs in the bus.

I think the hoho buses are not a good idea in Dec. for both reasons, weather and traffic. For a tour, I would suggest using a closed bus with a guide that stays with you.


does a bus tour and


is another option.



uses subway and walking. Don't use the hoho buses for transportation. Use the subway. It's fast.
