What people are saying about The New York Times Building
A lot comes down to the quality of the guides - a couple of the guides we had were a bit mediocre, but the one who took us on the tour of Harlem was excellent. Having said that, if you want a straightforward and cost effective way to see the City, it is a convenient, regular and reliable service, and an excellent way to learn more about the City. Have to also comment on the guys that try to sell the tours on the street - they were very helpful tour guides, even when they knew you already had a ticket and weren't going to be a customer for them, they were happy to help with local advice and help. They were extremely good ambassadors for the company.
I got the 3 day uptown, mid-town, downtown, 1 hour cruise and night time package with entry into a museum plus a get 1 hour free biking around the park. Def worth doing - I stayed in Manhattan Time Square. I was there for 5 days but during my package period was unable to get back to do everything I'd wanted so...FYI, if you do the same and want to "extend" for another day, just go into the Big Bus office and get an upgrade for $20 as opposed to buying another one day ticket.
It was a little hard to figure out how to get on the bus to begin with....we were not in Times Square when we wanted to hop on. Once we figured that out, we liked the ability to hop off somewhere, explore and get back on again; hassle free. One seat (the last available) didn't have a seat cushion and I tore my jeans standing up. Other that that, it was a convenient way to see NYC.
Excellent tour, did all three in a row, we really enjoyed in it. Especially I would like to highlite your colleague Sherwood, extremely funny guy, with thousand of little story's along a way, about every corner of New York, and with great sense of humor, to make a tour differ from the other one's. Bravo ! Greetings from Belgrade, Serbia ! Jovan
It was a good experience except that some buses did not have air on one of the hottest days Also, the schedules were not as advertised. Instead of 15-20 minutes, it was more like 45 minutes. Staff were very helpful, as well as customer service.
