Double Decker Bus Tour
There are several great reasons to take a double-decker bus tour of New York City, including that they offer you not only a guided tour but also transportation around the city. You can get on and off the bus as you please, making it easy to explore many different parts of Manhattan during your ride.
Why I changed from Gray Line Sight Seeing to BigBus New York.
I used Gray Line for years and years, but 2 years ago something changed. They were not dropping off and picking up in the same locations. They were missing locations. The time to get on the buses was taking FOREVER. It was truly a sad thing.
I decided to try BigBus. It had a little different layout. But, it is SO much better than whatever happened with Gray Line.
This is exactly what this site is for. To tell you all of the ins and outs. I want you to experience the best trips!
In most cases, each tour operator has a Midtown, Uptown, and Downtown loop, as well as a night tour. The Midtown loop typically covers the area between Times Square and Central Park. The Uptown Loop covers Central Park and north: sometimes this includes the Upper East Side, sometimes the Upper West Side and less often, both. The Downtown loop covers the area south of Times Square to the southern tip of Manhattan. The coverage of each Night tour varies, but they often include Brooklyn and there isn't the option to hop-on, hop-off during the tour.
In most cases, it's less expensive if you book your tickets in advance, and there are frequently sales available online, so if the price is the most important factor for you, be sure to compare all the different choices.
