Create your own pace and itinerary on this hop-on hop-off bus tour with cruise option. Your ticket is valid for 48 hours and includes more than 40 stops in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Choose to add three additional ferry stops in New York Harbor. Admission to the Museum of the City of New York is included.

What to Expect

On the Uptown loop, visit Manhattan highlights such as Central Park, Fifth Avenue, Lincoln Center, American Museum of Natural History, Apollo Theater, Guggenheim Museum, and Metropolitan Museum of Art.

On the Downtown loop, see historic neighborhoods such as Soho, Greenwich Village, Chinatown, and the Lower East Side. For a taste of the outer boroughs, explore Brooklyn with stops at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and Brooklyn Museum. See the city skyline, Brooklyn Bridge and Statue of Liberty from the water on a harbor cruise (if option selected). Entrance to Museum of The City of New York or New-York Historical Society is included.

Wherever you are, pre-recorded narration—available in 11 languages—is synced to your GPS location.
