Very knowledgeable
We did the tour on our first full day in the city and it really helped us find our feet! The route is great because you get to capture the must see sights from all angles. Steve was an incredible tour guide, he had so much up to date knowledge and was much better than listening to a boring audio guide. He bought it all to life and should never be replaced by a machine! Also made us feel very safe whilst driving around and answered all our questions! Would happily have listened to his commentary all day!

The tour guides on the uptown downtown and night tours were all amazing. Their knowledge of the City and there enthusiasm to share it was fascinating and hugely entertaining. They are a credit to the company and a great asset. And not forgetting the drivers who also do a fantastic job! Every tour was money well spent.

Trisha, Most interesting and passionate tour guide ever. Fantastic tour.
Mar 2020 • Couples
What a beautiful evening and what made it so good was the passion Trisha gave throughout the tour, it was our second time on the bus and the last was very dull and uninteresting, I learned more in the evening with Trisha then on all the tourist attractions we have gone to, she was just brilliant! Highly recommend.

Such an amazing experience
Mar 2020 • Family
How can I describe such an amazing experience. Excellent photo opportunities and great tour guide information given to us by Steve our tour guide for the evening on the 7th of March 2020. Not only giving us the basic tourist information but also information which is tourist might not know or to go deeper into New York and their lifestyle. Truly amazing and would definitely recommend around this time might need to wrap up warm but definitely beats the queues which are expected in the summer. Attach are some of the beautiful photos I managed to take on this Night Tour.

We were a bit unclear as to what time to pick up the bus as told different times. Our tour guide J.Hawk was brilliant, he spoke clearly and was extremely informative. I would do it again but perhaps on a warmer time of year.

The night tour was included in my 2 day pass. Was not sure if I could do this at any time or if it had to be done during the 2 day period. I read the ticket saying it departs from Stop #10 M & M World. The writing was tiny. I set out to catch the first bus of the night at 6pm. After an hour and a half of walking, subway, and a phone call to determine where to pick up the tour, I finally got the 7.30bus. The ticket actually said stop #40 when I enlarged the photo but even the guide on the bus agreed with me it looked like 10. Even 40 was incorrect as that was an old stop number apparently. This tour departs from stop #37. See why I was confused? For me it set a bad tone to the tour when I finally made it. Driver and guide were fabulous. Would have loved an opportunity or two to take photos. This is not the tour to take if you want lovely night photos.

Night Tour
Dec 2019 • Couples
We used the hop on hop off bus tour for three days of our trip which included the night tour. We had Bernie as our tour guide who was very knowledgeable and made our trip a memorable one!!

We had got engaged in New York 2 days before the night tour and Bernie gifted us a lovely set of postcards with all the main attractions of New York City and made us all feel special on board by getting to know us individually between attractions.

We regularly use this company when visiting cities across the UK and America. It is a fantastic way to navigate through New York and learn a lot of fun facts. We would like to thank Bernie for a lovely tour of New York at night and would highly recommend this service!!

GREAT TOUR BUT...
Feb 2020 • Friends
It was a nice tour around the city. Most of the famous monument are seen. NYC by night is incredible. BUT we took the French language option with the earphones and the explications was every time cut. We don’t have ear one entirely... It was a huge problem. The earphone system was old and doesn’t work very much... so sad

Just an advice for the company : on cold night of winter, a plaid would be a must

Good Afternoon lamoucheam, While we are happy you enjoyed the tours, we apologize that you have had problems with the French channel as an international company, we understand the importance of clear and concise sound for the understanding of the commentary. Rest assured, it will be immediately reported to the designated service. As for the cold, for the top level while it is only half way or quarter way covered, it is difficult to obtain heat, we still encourage passengers to dress for the weather or enjoy the tour from the bottom level heated and enclosed. Even so, we appreciate your feedback as we aim to do better next time. Kind regards, BBTNY

Our tour guide Bernie was amazing!! Although the weather was rubbish- not their fault it was still great!!
We did switch to another bus because it was less busy, sadly I can’t remember the guides name but he had amazing anecdotes aswell as pointing out where to see celebrities or great views of the sky line. He also played frank sinatra songs while we had an amazing view of New York. This really added to the whole experience making it a night to remember.
Bernie is 10/10- he knew a fact about every single country someone was from and really engaged with the customers. I went on the tours more than once during my trip and Bernie recognised me each time which makes me feel valued as a customer.

Big Bus New York Night Tour was just swell. I had a fabulous journey through the city with Jim and Reid. There were exceptional views from the position I was seated. I would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone. I really hope I see Jim again soon.
