    Loved it! We had a 2 day pass and did the north loop on day 1 and south loop day 2. the guides were really knowledgeable and we felt we learned a lot about New York. There were 2 negatives - why do you employ lots of Male ‘in your face’ ticket towtes? I’d read how good your tours were and was specifically looking for you. I would’ve appreciated a central location to go to or a member of your team assisting me at the stops instead of been hassled by your sales people. I Really didn’t like that and some of them were so in your face it was quite intimidating. Also, our ticket had a circle line boat trip included. Your recommendation on the ticket was to get there 30 minutes before the departure time at Pier 16. We actually got there 45 minutes earlier than the departure but because we’d not exchanged the voucher for tickets we had to join a huge line and missed the boat. if you’d explained that process we’d definitely have caught it.

    Super great. However look into the boat fair departure dates, we were unaware at the time that they only departed once a day at 10:30 am which we missed. Also to redeem your voucher you can see the ticket agents in Times Square, the Big Bus customer service never seemed to have their exact location, which actually got really annoying. Although the bus tour guides were kind enough to give us a lift to find a ticket voucher. * If you have a Empire State building pass, you actually cannot redeem your tickets with the agents, instead you have to see their agent at Madame Tussauds New York, times square, in Big Bus line 3. I didn't know any of this so it consumed a lot of our time in the city, however the booking date didn't matter to them so we were able to redeem the tickets on a different day which was cool since we had already spent an entire day riding the buses.

    Needed more instruction

    My daughter and I recently did this and really enjoyed it. I do feel that they could have provided more instruction - I could only find end hours on this site which said 5:00, but then they were still dropping people off at stops at 5:20. I would have gotten off if I had known if another bus would be coming. Not knowing the schedule and frequency of buses was inconvenient. We waited 30 minutes to be picked up.
