  • Avoid public transit and explore in the comfort of a luxury vehicle
  • Skip notoriously long lines at One World Observatory
  • Includes admission ticket for 1-hour harbor boat cruise
What to expect
  • Meet your guided transport in front of Le Parker Meridien Hotel in Midtown, a district easily accessible by public transportation and ideally situated for a day of sightseeing. Relax on leather seats as you're driven around town in a brand-new luxury vehicle. Depending on group size, some vehicles come equipped with flat-screen TVs and wall plug-ins to ensure your phone has enough juice for snapping plenty of pictures. While your driver expertly navigates New York's busy streets, a separate guide relays information about the sights as you pass them. See the breadth of Manhattan, from Central Park's leafy expanses to Wall Street's famous bull to the wedge-shaped Flatiron building. You can also pay your respects to fallen heroes outside the 9/11 Memorial. At each stop, take the opportunity to walk around as your guide shares commentary about each attraction. Following your comprehensive exploration of New York City from the ground, experience the city from the sky. The tour includes admission to One World Observatory, one of Manhattan's most popular new destinations. Skip the lines, receive salutations from an array of languages from around the world at the Global Welcome Center and shoot to the top of the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere. On the 60 second ride, watch as LED technology displays the construction of Manhattan's skyline over centuries. Once you arrive, feel free to explore three stories filled with floor-to-ceiling views of New York City sprawled below. Spy the Statue of Liberty and Brooklyn Bridge in the distance, plus views of the Empire State Building, Fifth Avenue's flashy boutiques, St. Patrick Cathedral and some of the sights you saw during your driving tour. Within a day, you'll have explored every side of New York City.

NYC 360 Tour
Aug 2019
We were in NYC for Labor Day weekend to see our Navy son and wanted to show him and his wife the sights. I wanted to do a tour so we could see as much as possible in a day. After reading reviews for all of the bus tours, High Quality Tours seemed to stand out as the frontrunner. I booked the Land and Sea tour originally, but Berenice suggested that we upgrade to the 360 to include the One World Trade Center Observatory. She didn't need to say much for me to do this, and I am glad that she suggested it. The combination of Berenice's history/personality along with Arben's driving skills made the day extremely enjoyable. People should understand that this is NYC. It's extremely busy, and adjustments are inevitable. For instance, we were supposed to see the north side of Central Park but due to movie filming there, we saw the south side instead. Not a big deal. There is so much to see, and Berenice and Arben made it work perfectly. Thank you to you both for giving my family and entertaining and educational experience we will not forget. I highly recommend High Quality Tours 360 tour.

Our tour guide J not only gave us a very comfortable tour of NYC of the major sites but also intrigued us with his amazing stories of NYC. His passion, respect and loyalty to the city gave us a locals perspective of the city. It was throughly an enjoyable day with good recommendations on things to do and local restaurants. Highly recommend this tour.

Bad tour and waste of money.
Jun 2019 • Couples
This tour (360) experience was so bad; I am not sure where to begin.
First, this tour was not what we expected from the advertisements. While we understood that there were some stops, we didn’t realize that this is half a walking tour. I think these stops just wasted time and did not make the tour as “comprehensive” as it could have been. There were many sites and stories that they could have covered, but because we were walking around, missed our expectations. The stops include Central Park Strawberry fields (not too bad but still wasted time), St. Patrick’s Cathedral/Rockefeller Center (walking for several blocks all around Rockefeller Center), Madison Square Park/Flat Iron Building (I am not sure why this was even part of the tour), lunch at Fulton Street (at least 30 minutes or more of no touring/wasted time), the dock for the boat tour, and the 9/11 memorial (where we spend a lot of time walking around). I would have expected less stops and quicker stops so you can see more and if you wanted to see something more up close, you could just go there. It missed the mark for us. We thought he would talk about the site and then allow a quick on/off for pictures and to see it up close (our experience with a TV/movie tour several years ago). We did not expect a walking tour.
When we first met the tour guide, we were handed a sheet of paper which I thought was info on what we will see, but it was just web sites of places to see and deals. I am not sure why the tour company (or tour guide) felt they needed to give us that. Then we had to walk over a half a block to get the bus, it did not pick us up as the advertising states.
Next let’s talk about the tour guide, “J”. While some people may like him, we found him so annoying. He had several phrases that he kept repeating that I just wanted to punch him every time he said them. 1. “That is why you have a tour guide, and they don’t.”, 2. My daughter is a rockett………, 3. Every bad joke about New Jersey. 4. (At the 9/11 memorial), “Everything has a reason, everything has a purpose.” He also kept implying that he wanted tipped but he did not deserve one. Oh, and we also heard about his singing gig that night.
“J” would keep repeating the same facts over and over again, like I was in school and he was making sure I learned everything. He could have had more facts and stories to tell but kept repeating the same things over and over again. Much of what was said on the walking tour could have been done on the air conditioned bus instead of in the hot sun which was our experience several years ago for the movie/tv tour. That way the stops could have been quicker and if you did not want to see it up close or have a picture taken , you could stay on the bus. Then some of his comments, I felt were inappropriate and like telling you how cheat the taxes, rubbing the bulls balls (while showing with his hands), his negative attitude about the gay pride parade, and much more. He was very condescending with some of his comments as well (i.e. get out of Time Square, don’t eat at McDonald’s, you have to ride the subway, etc.).
Then there was the way he treated people. You on the right or left, you were only allowed to look out that side or were told about it, go to the bathroom now, you will do what I say, hurry up, etc. Again, it was like we were in school and getting scolded all the time. He even belittled the bus driver a few times. Also, hearing one bad joke after another, where nobody on the tour laughed.
Many of his facts were real estate related. This should be dubbed the real estate tour because you will learn how much every star pays for their condo, how much condo’s sell for, flipping condos, etc. It was just too much.
Maybe a better tour guide would have made this tour better. I am not sure how much freedom the tour guides have but this is not we expected. Some of the reviews stated about the driver being involved, but he didn’t say anything. It was bad.
The cruise (at $31 if bought separately) and the world trade center tower (at $35 if bought separately) were OK (I will leave other reviews for these). We would have just done these separately and for the cruises, there are longer ones all away around Manhattan.
Now, for the 6 hours, keep in mind once you subtract lunch and the cruise, it really is only 4 hours and half of that was a walking tour. I wish we did not do this tour and saved the $130 each. It was a waste of time for us and a waste of money.

Great Day!
Jun 2019 • Family
We had one day for our whirlwind tour of NYC and it was excellent! Tom was a great guide for our small group. Rain and wind in the beginning made for a bit of a challenge but Tom adjusted accordingly and it did not feel like we missed anything, in fact we felt like we had some bonus stops (beautiful church on Upper East Side). The sun came out in time for our harbor tour which was a highlight, great way to see the city. The final stop at One World Observatory was great as well. Tom was personable, knowledgeable and able to talk on almost any topic. Our three teenage boys were actually engaged throughout the tour. I purposely chose this for the smaller group size and it did not disappoint. Thanks Tom!

Perfect tour of NYC. Bernice is amazing, very knowledgable about the city, with a great attitude, lots of energy and a great sense of humor. She really made this tour a special experience. The vehicle is luxiriuous and very comfortable. Boris the driver kept the entertainment level high. The route was very well thought of and covered the most important NYC sites. All in all, highly recommended.

Awesome way to see New York in one day.
Jun 2019 • Couples
We had a grand time with our guide, Tom. We went all over Manhattan and had the inside stories on a lot of places. Small tour bus was of utmost quality and in great shape. Our driver was courteous and a real pro. If you want an overall view of New York this would be a great place to start.
