Ibrahim is the best!!

This experience was great! The stops aren't the easiest to find, so you want to make sure get back on the bus where you get dropped off. The audio tour is good too. We had a little trouble understanding how the ferry tour worked, but Ibrahim came to the rescue and answered all of our questions. He spent extra time with us printing out tickets we needed and gave us some pointers on how to get where we needed even faster. Without Ibrahim I'd rate this a 4, but because of his helpfulness, Im giving a 5!

Unable to use Empire State Building portion

Did not give 5 stars because we were not able to use the Empire State Building portion due to the inability to find a Big Bus representative after 4:30 pm to print the tickets. A Big Bus representative advised us not to print a reservation because it was better to view the City at night and we would have a better chance of not missing the reservation time if we waited to print the tickets at the end of the day; we were told we could come back to the exact location before 5:00, however when we arrived at 4:30 pm, we were not able to find a representative that had the equipment needed to print our tickets. We went to Empire State Building and they were not able to redeem anything with the QR code. A greeter from the Empire State Building actually walked us to a corner near the Empire State Building where there should have been a Big Bus representative-we waited over 20 minutes and never saw anyone. The Big Bus was great and the Statue of Liberty was awesome….the price I paid for the Empire State Building for 5 people was approx $150 and was a total loss.

We got to do the upper east side and a few stops downtown before being rained out. Bummer as I had bought a 3 day pass.

Overall okay, depends on tour guide

Best way to explore new York. The only challenges we had were bus malfunction twice in a 3 day trip. But were able to change the bus in a reasonable time. The blue line on 8/15/18 starting around 3:30 pm took short cut and didn't let us get down at Madison square. Walked to Penn Station from Times Square. I think overall a good experience. One thing I would suggest is please do enough background checks for the tour promotes on the street, a couple of them were annoying and rude to people with other nationalities.

weniger als erwartet

Hop on Hop off Bustour war gut. Insbesondere die eingeschlossene Nachttour ist ein muss. Jetzt kommen die 'aber': - man muss erst umständlich das Ticket in Papierform nahe Times Square abholen - die Warteschlangen zum Einsteigen waren am Wochenende katastrophal - Fähre zur Freiheitsstatue war im Preis inbegriffen, aber nicht der Besuch der Freiheitsstatue selbst. War etwas unklar in der Beschreibung, sonst hätte ich es extra buchen können - nur vorab möglich, nicht vor Ort. - wir waren drei Tage dort und trotzdem hat die Zeit nicht gereicht alle eingeschlossenen Touren zu machen. Achtung manche Touren sind eingeschlossen, finden aber nur zweimal am Tag statt. - Ticket hätte man auch vor Ort kaufen können - es laufen genügend Anbieter auf der Straße rum

L'attraction Statue de la Liberté ne comprend que le Ferry mais pas l'accès à l'intérieur du monument. La traduction en français de la visite à bord du bus (via écouteurs) ne tient pas du tout compte de la circulation donc aucune synchronisation entre ce que vous voyez et ce qu'on vous commente.
