Dirty and Unhelpful but Cheaper than Uber
Do not do what we did and wait until the last minute to book a bus tour. If you do, you will end up with this “tour” as your only option. We went in with low expectations, as this tour only has 1-2 stars on all websites. If you go in with high expectations, you will leave angry, so you might as well expect the worst. That is exactly what you get. This bus is a glorified Uber, not a “tour.” The headphones or audio tour only worked on one of the 4+ buses we were on that day. The drivers were fairly rude and not knowledgeable. We were advised by the driver to get off at a stop near Chinatown, as he said it was the closest to the 9/11 memorial and Statue of Liberty. It was not the closest, he just wanted to make more room on the bus. The top of the bus was full of trash. If you sit on the top floor and there is a “glass top,” expect plastic that is so dirty you can’t even see out. You might as well sit on the bottom rather than in this dirty terrarium. ONLY take this bus if the cost is less than taking taxis or Ubers around town.

Hop Off, But Can't Hop On
Nov 2021 • Couples
Not an actual hop on hop off bus. Once you"hop off", they won't let you back on unless you buy another ticket. Misleading advertising.

Don’t go with kids! Not enough buses, and terrible customer service.
Oct 2021 • Family
What an absolute ripoff. 1-2 hour waits for buses that supposedly come every 15 mins, and bus drivers let the people in the back of the line on before those who have waited on line while several full buses passed. My kids are still crying this morning about their missed double decker experience yesterday, which was supposed to be the highlight of our city trip. We eventually had to give up and take the subway as bus after bus passed us and the bus drivers did not respect lines and treated the tired and impatient customers terribly. They even threatened to call the cops on other guests who protested them letting on the back of the line first.

So I guess we spent 180 dollars to take the bus two stops, and to be yelled at by various drivers?

Terrible Avoid this at all costs
Jun 2021
This was terrible, the bus picks you up from Time Square area as one of the pickups and then it goes around in circles for 30 minutes before it FINALLY heads to the downtown area. There they find the worst possible streets with construction going on and the bus drivers let cabs snake in front of them all the time. It took us nearly 2 hours from pickup at the 42nd and 8th pickup to get to the stop that was near the Trade Center area, but of course it lets you off 10 minutes away which isn't a big deal unless it was pouring rain like it was for us.

We totally wasted our money on this and due to how slow it was an dlittle time we had we just took the subway or walked. For sure we could have walked in the same time period. I have take these type of buses in Europe they are great, this sucks. Also they give you headsets but there isn't any commentary that we could hear.

Avoid this, I have one extra through Groupon that I hope to get my money back on.

Not worth the money!
I guess this was better than trying to walk thru the City, but not much.

I am very annoyed at the Scam they pull in regards to their ticket prices. I thought $39 a person was a fair price , so I order 4 tickets. After plugging in your credit card and other personal information I got hit for an additional $22.08 for "Ticketing and Handling," then another $13.24 for "Service."

My transaction was entirely done via the internet. I spoke to no one. No one mail me tickets, etc. So, what is the extra $35.24 exactly for? I tried calling to get an answer. But of course a somewhat shady business like this isn't going to answer up.

Audio did not work for half of the trip. People smoking dope and spilling beer on the upper seats of the bus. No one ever came up to see what the problems were.

TopView Sightseeing: NOT RECOMMENDED.
