Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

One of the worst tourist experiences I've ever had. Ultimately, I was charged $122 to take a bus 2 blocks. Customer service is wildly unhelpful and will not make things right for you. Save your money or choose a different company.

I have never written a review in my life, but this experience was so terrible I feel compelled to save the next person from suffering it. First of all, an employee at the bus stop asked us for $10 for a map. We then discovered the maps are free on the bus. A scam. The "audio tour" is mostly generic music. Nothing useful. Our driver immediately got into an accident and we exited the bus after 2 blocks.

We were unable to get on a bus after that for the following reasons: Almost none of the stops are clearly marked. We had to ask street vendors for help finding them. It didn't matter anyway because we waited at 2 different stops for 45 minutes and the buses never showed up. Also the "live map" feature they claim on the website does not exist. You cannot tell where the buses are and when they will arrive.

I called customer service only for them to tell me that they do not address customer service over the phone. I emailed their support address and was ignored until I disputed the charges with my credit card company. They are refusing to offer a refund and feel like $122 to go 2 blocks and have to take the subway home in the rain is fair value and the service they want to provide. This meets their standards! Buyer beware.

Please choose a different company for your sightseeing needs in NYC.

Never left on-time, running late, live map app not accurate, audio recording was either to slow or to fast depending on the timing of the route. When I called to express concern I was told only 2 people worked on the phones jn customer service and I had to email them.
When I emailed I was met with “sorry it’s our policy not to give any refund but we will extend your pass”. If you want a bus tour, take the Big Bus company, they have way more buses, were always pulling in and out of stops and seemed to have it together. It was the biggest waste of $330 (for a group of four).

Using a bus to see the sights of New York is a great idea but beware of the following: you will probably be paying way too much. Topview have these ticket sales people everywhere who bombard you as you leave the hotel. We paid around 100 dollars each for a two day pass - ridiculously overpriced. Once you get on their buses, the staff are rude. The buses arrive then you are left in a queue while they decide if you can get on or not. The top deck is cold but at least you can actually enjoy New York and get away from seeing how this company is run. Appalling!

Poor service and rude drivers. What else needs to be said. Purchased a two day pass and wish I had researched options first - so my bad. Several drivers were just rude. Pick up spots changed despite signage to designate pick up spots - literally we were dropped off at one spot that was clearly marked as a pick up for this company, but there was no pick up - the driver just pointed ahead and drove by us and we had to just "follow the crowd" to get picked up about a block away. The company did have an app that helped find pick up spots - but no one emphasized the need to use it due to changing pick up spots. Several other passengers made similar complaints. The accompanying pre-recorded messages were so off/ahead that you rarely had an in-the-moment commentary. Pick another option if you're planning a trip to NYC.

I have gone on these in many cities around the world. In every other one I have rated them well. I love this as a way to get oriented to a city. This one is a scam.
The traffic is so bad that you sit at a dead stop while people get on an off for a majority of the experience. My kids hated it and people were walking faster than the bus would drive and we went on a week day. The prices are negotiable so it’s like buying a car. Someone always pays way less than you. We ended up paying hundreds and hundreds and then just walked. It was also frustrating when the narration was 5 to 10 blocks off and most people were confused most of the time. Do this in other cities but not in NYC.

Waiting for busses all day. Up to 5 busses at times from stop 7 and stop 13. 20 people plus in the line Keep being told another bus coming in 10minutes which will take you all. Not one person could get on the last three buses.
This company aggressively sells it's tickets around Time Square . Promising you busses every 15 minutes. Offering you a special deal. Ours was 4 tickets at $46 each = $184 total price to pay. Was giving it in cash though then gave credit card instead to keep cash for China Town. When I checked they had taken $225 from my account.!!! Could NOT recommend TOPVIEW and recommend you AVOID
The excuses are it was a very busy day. Their tickets are Q coded so they know exactly how many tickets are sold and how many passengers they have in real time.

My husband and I take a hop-on/hop-off tour in any city we can and have always had such a great time, however we were quite disappointed in our recent experience in NYC. First we were very disappointed to see there were no actual tour guides on the bus talking to us and explaining different things about the city. This part made the tour exciting! Using the earphones, it was very hard to hear, typically the volume wouldn’t adjust to make louder or softer. We had a friend with us who is hearing impaired and wasn’t able to use the earphones with her hearing aides so she wasn’t aware of any of the details provided, whereas if there would have been an actual guide talking to us, she would have been able to watch him and hear what he was saying. Also, the signage and recordings made it very hard to know which number the stop was if you wanted to hop off or not. The buses were always packed and as we’re pulling up to a stop there are long lines of people waiting to get on, however there isn’t any room so they were having to wait in the sun for long periods of time. We chose to not hop off at any stop due to this matter, in fear of having to wait too long for the next bus that would have room. We were upset that we weren’t able to go into Harlem during our trip, even thou it’s shown on your brochure. We asked one of the guides about it and all he said was “it doesn’t exist and probably won’t the rest of the year” but no other reason was given. Several of the places/times your website or brochure says to be for different parts of the tour were incorrect and we’re sure glad we double checked with your reps or we would have maybe missed a couple of them. And as for your tons red-shirt reps all over the place, especially around Times Square, why not take some of them off the corners and put them on the buses as tour guides or maybe driving more buses so there are more available and we could actually hop-on/hop-off and enjoy the city so we don’t have to get a taxi or uber to get to the next part of the tour on time. So disappointing!! Too bad you don’t have a money-back guarantee.

As part of our package that we purchased, we were able to take the Statue of Liberty Harbor Cruise which we enjoyed. However the tour guide needed a better mic so we could have heard was he was telling us. But we did enjoy this cruise. It also included an night tour, which we enjoyed as well. Sometimes the driver was jerky in their stopping or starting, but all in all we enjoyed this part of our package too.

Unfortunately, this company is not worth it. Their busses are not maintained and are filthy. No ventilation and air conditioning in the bottom deck and the top deck has no shading when they stop at the stops, we endured boiling heat and sun for a long time as they take forever for the downtown tour. We took a five day tour and it still wasn't enough time to see everything. It takes really long to wait for a bus like over 30 minutes and the heat and sun made everything worse. They need to be more efficient and offer more busses to catch when there's so many tourists especially during rhe summer time. Also there are so many people advertising for them that it feels like a scam ad they pull you in with their specials and promises of "free" tours that are not really free. I would not recommend at all.
