The New York Hop On, Hop Off Tour Bus (Big Bus New York) is an easy, comfortable and practical way of exploring the Big Apple. The open-top double-decker bus runs past the city of New York's main landmarks and attractions. You can hop on and hop off at any of the Big Bus stops to explore the city at your leisure.
Hop On Hop Off New York Bus
The New York sightseeing tour bus has two routes that explore Uptown and Downtown, Midtown and more with over 25 stops at the city's essential landmarks and museums. All lines meet at Times Square. Throughout the ride, you’ll have English-speaking guided commentary on New York’s landmarks and attractions.
Of the 25 stops, 10 are essential in our opinion: Times Square, Chinatown, Wall Street, Empire State Building, Brooklyn Bridge, Central Park, MET Museum, Madison Square Garden, Little Italy and last but not least, the Statue of Liberty (your bus tour ticket includes a ferry ticket to Liberty Island).
