Manhattan transforms into a city of lights as soon as the sun sets. Avoid crowded sidewalks and subways, and instead enjoy views of the NYC borough’s landmarks from the open-air top of a double-decker bus. As you drive over the Brooklyn Bridge, get panoramic views of the glittering Manhattan skyline reflected in the East River.

What to Expect

Your evening begins at 6:30pm in Manhattan’s Theater District. Climb aboard the double-decker bus and head to the top level for unobstructed views of the city.

As the sun sets, snap photos of popular neighborhoods, including Times Square, Greenwich Village, Chinatown, and SoHo. An onboard guide ensures you never miss a landmark and provides a wealth of information about each one you pass.

Relax on the bus, as you pass the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, and the Manhattan Bridge illuminated under the night sky. On this tour, you avoid streets and subways that are notoriously crowded at this time of day.

Continue across the Brooklyn Bridge for rare views of the Manhattan skyline shimmering over the East River. Around 8pm, end the night back at your centrally located departure point.

New York City is Grey - this bus tour - meh

Pretty much just sat in a bus. The recorded guide that you can listen too repeated a lot of the same info over and over and half the time, was not geographically correct. The bus attendant had no microphone so essentially was just talking to...More

Great tour, but a long wait in line on a weekend to board a bus.

Took the nighttime tour on a Saturday night. Be prepared to wait in line over an hour to board a bus. The line is well managed by the Gray Line tour staff to keep people moving. Once of the bus, the ride was great. Fantastic...More
