    This experience was great! The stops aren't the easiest to find, so you want to make sure get back on the bus where you get dropped off. The audio tour is good too. We had a little trouble understanding how the ferry tour worked, but Ibrahim came to the rescue and answered all of our questions. He spent extra time with us printing out tickets we needed and gave us some pointers on how to get where we needed even faster. Without Ibrahim I'd rate this a 4, but because of his helpfulness, Im giving a 5!

    Did not give 5 stars because we were not able to use the Empire State Building portion due to the inability to find a Big Bus representative after 4:30 pm to print the tickets. A Big Bus representative advised us not to print a reservation because it was better to view the City at night and we would have a better chance of not missing the reservation time if we waited to print the tickets at the end of the day; we were told we could come back to the exact location before 5:00, however when we arrived at 4:30 pm, we were not able to find a representative that had the equipment needed to print our tickets. We went to Empire State Building and they were not able to redeem anything with the QR code. A greeter from the Empire State Building actually walked us to a corner near the Empire State Building where there should have been a Big Bus representative-we waited over 20 minutes and never saw anyone. The Big Bus was great and the Statue of Liberty was awesome….the price I paid for the Empire State Building for 5 people was approx $150 and was a total loss.

    Please do yourself a favor and DO NOT USE I repeat DO NOT USE this company to hop on/off in NYC. It was my husband and my mom's Birthday, they ruined it with their absolutely super mega BAD SERVICES! I waited a few days to write this review because I knew it was not going to be a nice one. We redeemed our tickets for Bus HOHO, Statue of Liberty & Empire State at the First Bus Stop as we were told even when we booked our date and time online as it was required after we purchased the tickets and were given a confirmation that shows that we just needed it to go directly to the attractions line and show the confirmation we printed at the time of the online booking (please see picture). After Tickets were redeemed (Rep insisted that printed confirmation won't work) with the Big Bus Rep at First Stop by M&M world in NYC, the attendant told us that we couldn't take the bus because we were going to be late to the Statue of Liberty Security Checkpoint and they wouldn't let us in, we decided to take a taxi to try to arrive ontime, we arrived 5-10 minutes after our booking time, ran like 'Forrest Gump" with my mom which is 76 years old and finally once we got to the Security Checkpoint, they just scan our tickets and let us in to the Ferry to Statue of Liberty, that was it! They don't check your time, validate the ticket to enter. After we were back from Statute of Liberty we had to walk to whatever place/attraction we were going because the BIG BUS never stop on any of the stops we were waiting and waiting, we literally walk the entire day, never used the bus tickets, my mom couldn't walk anymore, we had to take a taxi to the Empire State, once at Empire State Observatory, the attendant scanned our tickets (previously redeemed) and told us those tickets were VOIDED, yes, VOIDED, which mean we couldn't enter, unable to get any help since as others wrote on their reviews, there is no Customer Service Phone Number, only the chat option and they were not available at the time, we waste our time and money, we went back to the hotel with 8 HOHO unused tickets & 8 Empire State unused Tickets, $800 worth approx.. I have been waiting in the chat for about four days now and they have no giving me any answers. I would like to ask TRIPADVISOR to remove this company from their listing and make BIG BUS TOURS stop ripping people off!!

    Don’t waste your money. This is the worst company. Go with any of the other companies that offer the hop on hop off service. I’ve used other companies but decided to go with big bus because of the price. Totally regret it. Bus broke down audio commentary was inaudible, they changed us to a regular bus without ac, the app is never up to date, HORRIBLE!! Just don’t waste your money.

    My wife brought the ticket and I am the one who used with my sis and 9 year old. In the tickets it was never mentioned you need to activate the ticket in a Bus stop( you need to go to a particular bus stop to activate ?). We went to Statue of liberty and find out the ticket we have is not useful as they didn't give the right tickets online. There is no Customer care number to contact so we need to take the chat option. while waiting for the chat person to replay found big bus and try to communicate to Driver. Driver have no understanding about the ticket. there was NO guide on the bus. Now we are struggling to get refund Big bus is not ready to refund when we didn't use the ticket once. I will never recommend Big bus for any Kind of Tour.

    It was our first time in the city and my man Carlos really took care of us and helped us make the most of our trip on the Big Bus. Thanks, Carlos

    We had the best bus driver/tour guide EVER. He was knowledgeable, friendly, funny and he gave us extra commentary (aside from what the pre- recorded message gave us). He goes above and beyond to make the ride enjoyable and make sure you learn as much as you can about the city. He loves his job and it truly shows. If you are able to take this tour be sure to get John as your driver - YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED. And if possible and you enjoy yourself him your appreciation (a tip ) during or before you get off.

    Fantastic range of routes to see the whole city and beyond. The buses all ran regularly and you got to see all of the sites. If the bus didn’t take you to the exact spot you wanted you can guarantee there was a stop within a short walk from where you wanted. The tour guides were great. There was no pressure to tip either but all tips were greatly appreciated by the staff.

    Book online you’ll get a better deal than from the street vendors. We booked a 3 day ticket and suggest you do the whole circuit first as it’s the best way to get to know the City and then choose where to get off and explore on the 2nd trip as the stops we found quite difficult to locate and ended up doing more walking than hopping on and off. Very knowledgable and funny tour guide so you won’t get bored on the trip! We loved this way of seeing the City. Tour starts in Time Square.

    I booked this with the intention of using it as my main mode of transport between sights. This worked ok until I realised I need to travel in the opposite direction to the one way route! I also discovered that the circle line cruise ticket was only valid at 9.30am and not all through the day, necessitating an early start to get to the harbour. The Brooklyn route is also limited to only specific times during the day and does not run every half an hour like the standard routes. Buses were very busy during our visit and often the top deck was fully booked. You can only see a blurred view from the lower deck as the windows are shadowed. I used my ESB ticket which gave access to the 86th floor (I just had to queue inside just after security to exchange the bus ticket stub for an actual ESB barcode ticket to get through the turnstiles). I then opted to pay the additional £25 per person to go to the 102nd floor so it might be cheaper to buy this as a separate ticket. Overall the 3 day ticket was not much more than a 1 day and I did enjoy the commentary by the tour guide but didn’t make as much use of the tours due to the intermittent times of the schedule.
