the hop-on hop-off buses are a MUST for me in every city! You get a great overview, which you never get when you use the subway. It's also great that the pass is valid for 24 hours - ie you can split the uptown and downtown tour over 2 days, for example.

The bus and the cruise where ok. However the service could improve since the employees that give information about the tour (times, etc) and help you hop on are very disrespectful, with no clear communication, and mixed information. The bus get you through all the city and you can hop on and off to really explore the city and walk since it doesn’t get close to all the landmarks and attractions

I ended up adding another day, it was just fantastic. I stayed on the bus all the way around the first time and then I went around again and hopped off at the places I wanted to spend more time with. Would highly recommend Big Bus New York. Thankyou such a great way to see New York.
