Great way to get to the Major NYC sites.. Beautiful day!! Got to go to many of the sites!! Great experience and app was easy to follow.

Great service. The bus routes are a little confusing at first, but great overall. It takes you all over New York. The stops are conveniently located. We enjoyed the blue route more the red, but both are worth going on. I’ll definitely do this the next time I’m in New York.

Some of the most memorable parts were viewing the brass (?) bull of Wall Street, St. Patrick’s (?) Cathedral, and what appeared to be the One World Tower (?), although the name is probably wrong. I Highly recommend starting the tour at Times Square.

Tour guide was excellent. The stop sites were good, and the routes were great. I Don’t think you should ask people to elaborate more before you will accept there respond
