    Our trip on the Blue Line was very informative and comfortable. Ving, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and he was very personable. Great value.

    Simply not worth the money. A 7 day subway pass is $33 dollars and all you miss are a couple of facts. The buses take far longer than advertised (they blame this on traffic however it’s simply because there aren’t enough buses). If a bus is full, you simply have to wait. We

    Response from BigBusToursUSA, Manager at 3 Day Hop-on Hop-off with Empire State Building and Statue of Liberty

    Good Afternoon Poppy19026 We are apologetic for the inconveniences, please know we monitor capacity and prepare for busier times. We understand your frustration, unfortunately, refunds are determined by the National Administrator and the results are based on reasoning within policy guidelines by a case by case basis. The closures and reroutes were due to city events which are out of our control and due several city events including UN General Assembly that week, we encountered delays, route changes and cancellations. Please know whenever we have to change or alter a route, or close a stop completely, we only do so once mandated by the Dept. of Transportation. We post these changes on our website and app under “Service information’ All of our guides and agents are aware of these changes and should be informing customers also. In spite of that, we wanted to thank you for sharing your thoughts and feedback with us. Kind Regards, BBTNY
