Escorted Bus Tours of New York: Why USA Guided NYC Bus Tours are the Best Way to Explore the Big Apple
As the fleets of buses that sweep up and down New York City streets attest, guided bus tours are an excellent way to see the sights in the Big Apple. You can admire the landmarks on some of the world’s most famous streets — Broadway, Wall Street, Fifth and Madison Avenues — while marveling at the crowds that make New York famous for people-watching. There are many New York bus tours on offer, but USA Guided Tours’s day and night NYC itineraries are by far the best experience you can buy. Here’s why:
When you begin your morning or evening in NYC on a USA Guided Tours bus, that’s your bus, your tour guide, and your companions for the whole tour. Who would expect any less? Most bus tours in NYC, however, are hop-on/hop-off, in which you are picked up and let off at each landmark. These tours can feel more like an impersonal rush-hour commute on Manhattan’s crosstown buses than the luxurious, personalized experience you’ll get from USA Guided Tours, where you won’t have to meet a brand-new guide and fellow passengers after every stop. Our NYC tour buses are also much smaller, so you won’t be stuck in the back of a crowded bus struggling to hear.
With USA Guided NYC bus tours, you’ll never waste precious sight-seeing minutes in front of the 9/11 Memorial or Rockefeller Center waiting to hop onto the next bus. Our itineraries are planned so that you have ample time to explore each stop, but you’ll never be left alone on a New York City street at the mercy of time, traffic, or the elements.
USA Guided Tours Got You Covered!
On our day tour, you’ll travel from Wall Street to Central Park, stopping at places including the New York Stock Exchange and Strawberry Fields, the John Lennon memorial in Central Park. Our night tour full of the city’s brilliant bright lights, from Times Square to a view of the Manhattan skyline from the base of the Brooklyn Bridge and the painted stars of Grand Central Terminal’s ceiling. You can even set your own itinerary if you book one of our private tours!
Unlike other tours, our guides hop on and off the bus with you. You’ll learn the history of buildings like Federal Hall and the Flatiron right from Wall Street or Madison Square Park. There’s no need to take notes on the bus so that you can recall those fascinating facts once you get off. Our 4.5-5 hour NYC bus tours are also longer than the hop-on/hop-off itineraries, which often are only 2.5-3 hours long (not counting visits at each stop or wait-times for the next bus).
In USA Guided Tours’s smaller, climate-controlled buses, you’ll never shiver from icy winter winds or melt in scorching summer heat —unlike in those double-deckers that let in the full brunt of New York City’s seasons. Complementary and unlimited water is also available on every tour so that you never have to worry about staying hydrated.
