“Great Double Decker Tours”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

Get the fortyEight hours pass. It's worth it! They have uptown loop, downtown loop and brooklyn loop during the day and a night tour too. You get ear buds and you connect it to certain channels to listen to the guide besides different languages channels too. they cover most of NYC attaractions and you can leave and come back at anypoint just make sure to always have your pass. We rode it four times two of the guides were very fun and informative and one was average the last was only pointing what's wrong with the city so I and my husband swithched the channel to a pre recorded guide so we can enjoy the tour. In spite of that we enjoyed it.

“Fun for the entire family!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

Took my wife and two kids (ages 4 and 7) on the all-day inclusive tour and it was worth every penny. Our tour guide was extremely informative and fun and the pace of it all kept my children alert and attentive. Lunch in little Italy was great and the ferry ride around the Statue of Liberty was very fun. It was an all day event that taught us a lot about the city and sights of New York City. All the stops were at impressive places (WTC Memorial, Rockefeller Center, Top of The Rock, Wall Street, Grant's Tomb, Times Square, etc.). HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

“New York, New York!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

Our experience was absolutely marvelous! We started with the night tour on the day we arrived and that gave us the opportunity to think about which sights we wanted to come back to see. The tour was excellent, by the way. Then the next day it was raining and cold and we were lucky enough to get on a covered bus with the BEST driver and guide! They were both very knowledgeable and even sang "New York, New York" which really livened up our trip. Everything about the tour was great. We were on the Hop on - Hop off tour but we refused to hop off because we were enjoying the tour so much and didn't want to get on another bus. The second day it was still cold but the sun was shining and as luck would have it we got on a bus with the same driver and tour guide! That day we followed their recommendations and saw the sights of New York. I would definitely recommend Gray Line for New York Sightseeing.
The New York trip was an outing for my daughter and me. My husband and I have traveled extensively and we always start with a Gray Line tour.
Thank you for many excellent tours!

Guide and Driver are a fantastic team. They, along with so many of our other star sightseeing teams are what makes taking a Gray Line NY tour the only option when touring New York City. Our packages always include extras that most of our customers take advantage of. We put a great deal of effort into creating each of our custom tours so that our guests have a memorable and enjoyable experience such as the one you had. We appreciate and value your review about your sightseeing experiences.

“Hop on Hop off NYC”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

The four lines plus night time are excellent to get an overview. Some of the tour guides are far better than others. Can't really single out any, some Asian were fantastic and other Asians can hardly spek English. The Bronx was disappointing as the lady could only talk about NY Yankees and not about the houses around there. Jose on the Brooklyn tour was fantastic. Overall buy the two day tickets for $59 which includes a hour bicycle hire.

Although most of our tour guides are truly excellent, they are human and sometimes you may find one tour guide to be better than another. Your feedback is important and helpful.

Absolutely one of the best tours I've ever had. Fantastic value for the money. Great way to acquaint yourself with the city. Land-by bus, Sea- by boat and air- from the top of the Rock. Dinner in Little Italy included. Great tour guide.
