The hop-on hop-off bus tour was a welcome relief from walking. Everyone on the bus we encountered was friendly, informative and a delight to be with.

Response from BigBusToursUSA, Manager at Empire State Building Ticket with Hop-on Hop-off Bus Tour
Responded 10 Oct 2019
Good Afternoon Kcrunk6, We appreciate you taking the time to leave some feedback. While we are glad you enjoyed our tour guides as they are the heart and soul of the tours, we encourage our guides to add little personal anecdotes from time to time to make the tour their own, however, political opinions are unacceptable, and we apologize if you were made to feel uncomfortable in any way. Please know all of our information is updated on our pamphlets, app and website, as we constantly monitor our routes. Unfortunately, any past locations that has been removed from the route but still has a bus sign, can only be removed from the dept. of transportation, we have no control over this procedure. None the less, we apologize for the inconveniences and we hope this one incident doesnt discourage you from touring with us again. Kind Regards, BBTNY

Met the nicest person of our trip, he was energetic, informative and fun. He made it interactive and I sometimes find these tours boring but this was not the case with our guide!
