Create your own sightseeing itinerary with the New York City Hop-On Hop-Off Tour! A hop-on-hop-off bus tour is the ideal way to explore every corner of the Big Apple and, with lively tour guides to keep you entertained and informed, you are sure to learn facts old and new about the city that never sleeps! Hop on and off the distinctive double-decker buses at any of the 40+ stops to discover New York at your leisure. A must-have tour for any visitor to the Big Apple!

Choose to upgrade for the All Around Town Tour which includes loops of Uptown, Downtown, and Brooklyn New York City neighborhoods. This pass also gets you access to a Night Tour of New York and Hop-on Hop-off cruise. For more value, add attractions to your tour!
  • Customize your experience with multiple hop-on hop-off options
  • See New York’s top neighborhoods from a secure double-decker bus
  • Option to save money with add-on attraction admission tickets
  • Take in top sites at your own pace
  • Combine the convenience of a tour guide with total independence
What to Expect
Choose the tour option that’s right for you, paying only for the duration, attractions, and activities you’ll use. You can board at any bus stop by showing your mobile or paper voucher to the on-board staff. If you’re a first-time visitor, get your bearings on one of the three loop hop-on, hop-off bus routes: Downtown, Uptown, or Brooklyn. Some of the highlights of these include Times Square, Rockefeller Center, and Museum Mile, and the routes are carefully designed to pass a long list of landmarks. Since passes include unlimited access throughout the duration, you’ll have the option to ride the entire loop, then return to see the places that interest you most. The night tour shows New York City when it lights up after dark, and a hop-on, hop-off cruise option sails to the Statue of Liberty and the Brooklyn Bridge, with photo-friendly views of the New York City skyline.

In theory this was a great service and experience, however the "tour guides" spent half their time getting people on the bus, and exciting people off the bus for tips. We literally stopped at each stop for 15-20 min.
