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.
Learn more about our review moderation.
*Likely to sell out: Based on Viator’s booking data and information from the provider from the past 30 days, it seems likely this experience will sell out through Viator, a Tripadvisor company.

    We had a great time on this tour! It is an excellent way to see many of the highlights of New York City in a relaxing and fun manner. Our tour guide, Bryant, was excellent. He is very engaging, upbeat, fun, and interesting. Our driver, Guy, was also great and is clearly an expert at driving in NYC! We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and felt it was time very well spent. Highly recommend this company! They are professional, courteous, fun, and entertaining. Really made our trip to NYC even better!

    Saul was very helpful upon boarding the Downtown hop on-hop off at stop 3. We then hopped off at Wall Street and then back on later in the day. The only unfortunate thing was we wanted to go back to stop 3 but the driver made us get off at 1.

    Just wonderful,we all had fun wonderful guys working for big Bus. We saw alot of cool attractions and buildings. They should've have provided air conditions down stairs because some people wouldn't have been able to resist heat.

    I give a Three star, just to the Empire State and not the BigBus service, the traffic is horrible in NY as you know, so it takes forever for the tour to circle all Manhattan and uptown, I do not recommend it, you will waste a full day sitting in a Bus. I suggest learn the subway routes and use it instead, way faster.
    The employees are not professionals at all but Sales people hustle in people to Bus.

    What a waste of money and time!!!!! Sat on traffic for 2 hours! (Not the bus fault) gave you head phones to listen- not personal at all no fun stories- but far the most horrible tour!! Also got to go on the boat- another waste!! And it was cut short (also not their fault) but my family and I could have done so much more if we didn’t waste our time on this tour! If you MUST go on the bus tour do the night one ONLY… less traffic prettier views

    We spent more time sitting in traffic than seeing sights. Commentary was not very informative, I was using my phone to Google things we went by. This was a waste of our short time in New York.
