“Hop On/Hop Off....Great way to see the city and to get you where you're going!”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

We did a couple of Hop on Hop off tours while in NYC....
Grayline was great, tour guides were informative, helpful and its a great way to see the city. if you did the tour ten times, you would see something new each time. We chose the downtown loop most often as it was close to attractions where we wanted to hop off but there are many to choose from, including Brooklyn Bridge at night which we didn't have time to do, but I hear its a must to do!

“Book online for best buys”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

Our guides were all reasonable, great to sit down and sight-see instead of riding the subway all the time. Matt was the best of the 6 guides we had - he told great jokes and was really entertaining. We had a 3 day, take all tours ticket which seemed right, for our 5 day stay in NYC; we booked our attractions separately, since we wanted to go only to the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building. We stayed in Harlem, so it was not as convenient to catch at the beginning of the day - we had to take a subway to get to any bus stop. Be prepared to wait at most if not all downtown spots.

Matt is a fantastic guide. He, along with so many of our other star sightseeing guides are what makes taking a Gray Line NY tour the only option when touring New York City. Our buses can be delayed by the local City Police department or by other traffic like activity that is often beyond our control.

“Terrible The bus driver ruined the Tour. The tour guide was nice and good he told me what I want to know about nyc.”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

I'm saying the tour guide was nice. First asian tour guide well the time I was in nyc.Forgot his name I think his name is Alex or Allen. He gave a good tour. But the bus driver ruined the tour. If it wasn't the bus driver. I'll give more stars if it's not the bus driver. He came up on the bus want to run the tour. When was red light he gets off the bus. He kept on coming up on the bus. Is it the bus driver suppose to drive. He slow the tour down. He skip a few stop. I wanted to get off central park. He stopped on the stop at the woldalf Astoria Hotel. After he skipped all the other stop and went on to the last stop. I been on the gray line before it was great I plan to take again. But time the experience was the worst out of 5 time took the tour. The tour guide said his name. I think his name was Ondraid he is a heavy set guy bald. If it wasn't the bus driver the tour would be great.

“A good way to see NY!!!”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

My husband I spent two days in New York. We loved the Gray Line Tour. As others have mentioned, the tour guides are very different. We did all but one of the tour loops and each guide as informative. However, the downtown loop and uptown loop guides were more engaging and helpful. The tour was a great way to see NY. We did not experience any long waits and we did hop off at our desired sights. Skip the "Brooklyn Loop" unless you are going to hop off and experience the Brooklyn Bridge. The tour was well worth our money.

“Riding the Road”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

As it was our first trip to New York ..we decided to take the Bus..and see the world ..well the New York part of it anyways.. We had Two Dave's with us.. Dave the Driver and Dave the Talker..both very fine gentlemen who where excellent at their chosen professions ..Dave the Talker probably knows more about NYC than Google and the rest of the world has not escaped his attention..he is a man well worth listening to..

The price is reasonable ..there is a meal thrown in and a boat trip over the Water and under the bridges with all the usual sights to be seen..Once ensconced on the bus I doubt you will be disappointed, my good lady and myself had a wonderful and enlightening time and what cold be fairer than that
