NYC Bus Tour Reviews

USA Guided Tours NY Awarded TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence & Viator Travel Award!

The reviews are in, and the awards keep coming for USA Guided Tours NYC Bus Tours. “Best Tour Ever!” writes Kristi from Vancouver, WA on TripAdvisor. Michael R. tells Viator he saw more on his “Discover NY” daytime guided bus tour than his previous 3 trips to New York City combined! If you want to have a Big Apple vacation of a lifetime, choose USA Guided Tours — recent winners of TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence and Viator’s Travel Award.
Recipient of 2017 Viator Travel AwardYou’ll especially appreciate our “Discover NY” daytime tour in August, when the shimmering summer heat is at its peak. Our happy customers love our air-conditioned buses and complimentary chilled bottled water, because it’s hard to enjoy the beautiful sights of New York City when you’re drenched in sweat and parched with thirst! As Peter R. notes, you’ll never have to wilt — I mean, wait — in line to get back on a hop-on/hop-off bus. Your seat is your seat for the tour, and it’s kept cool for you whenever you disembark to follow our expert guides through sites like the 9/11 Memorial and Museum or St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
Rick, another satisfied customer, recommends taking our daytime tour on your first full day in the City to “get a good overview” of its most iconic neighborhoods. We pick you up in Times Square and take you all over Manhattan: from Wall Street to South Street Seaport, up through Chinatown and Madison Square Park to the New York Public Library and Central Park. And don’t forget our amazing luxury boat cruise past the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island! When the tour’s done, you’ll know exactly which areas of the City you’ll want to explore more over the rest of your trip — ask our guides for their insider tips!

Recipient of 2017 Trip Advisor Certificate of ExcellenceOur daytime and “Big Apple in Lights” nighttime tours have something for every kind of vacationer. History buff? You’ll love learning how our first Congress passed the Bill of Rights at Federal Hall and seeing Trinity Church, where Alexander Hamilton is buried, on our daytime tour. On our evening tour, you’ll hear about the construction of the iconic Brooklyn Bridge, completed in 1883, and learn why acorns and oak leaves grace the decorations throughout Grand Central Terminal (pssst: it has nothing to do with squirrels!).
Foodies will enjoy eating at gourmet landmarks like Chelsea Market — home to a smorgasbord of fabulous food stalls — and tour guides like Tyler and Gil can tell you all the best places to eat in neighborhoods like Little Italy, SoHo, DUMBO, and Chinatown.

Music, TV, and theater fans love our stops at Rockefeller Center, home to NBC Studios since the 1930s, and Strawberry Fields, Central Park’s memorial to John Lennon steps from his former residence at The Dakota. And don’t forget the dazzling bright lights of Times Square in the heart of the Theater District — best enjoyed on our evening tour!
Let USA Guided Tours — the most comfortable and enjoyable tour in NYC — show you the best of the City. But don’t take our word for it: the over 1200 outstanding reviews on TripAdvisor and Viator speak for themselves!
