New York Double-Decker Bus Night Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
See New York City sparkle on an evening panoramic tour of the city lights. See the Empire State Building, Times Square, Greenwich Village, SoHo, Chinatown, the Lower East Side, Rockefeller Center and more aboard a double-decker bus for unbeatable views of the glittering Manhattan skyline. This is the perfect way to rest your feet after a full day of sightseeing and start your night out on the town.
  • Unobstructed views from the top of a double-decker bus
  • Avoid the hassle of navigating streets and subways in the dark
  • Panoramic views of the Manhattan skyline across the Brooklyn Bridge
  • Onboard guide provides interesting facts about each landmark passed
What to Expect
Your evening begins 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.

This was a great bus trip to see the lights of NYC. Our guide was good. We saw lots of NYC with the lights on and ready enjoyed going over to Brooklyn and looking back at Manhattan. Chrysler building is spectacular at night.
