Discover the magical atmosphere of New York’s most iconic landmarks lit up after dark during this combined walking and bus excursion. There’s no better way to get a sense for the 24-hour energy of this fast-paced world capital than by seeing its most famous sights illuminated at night.

Begin your trip at Times Square in the evening, boarding your coach bus and meeting your guide. Make your way by bus to your first stopping point, the city’s beautiful Grand Central Terminal, for a guided inside tour.

Jump aboard the bus for a sightseeing trip through the glowing nighttime streets of Lower Manhattan and Midtown. Explore famous upscale areas like SoHo, Tribeca, and Greenwich Village, pass by the iconic Washington Square Park and see other Big Apple attractions, listening as your guide shares details about the city’s history, celebrity residents and key landmarks.

Lastly, head to the High Line to learn about the origins of this incredible addition to New York’s green space from your guide, discovering its former role as a freight railway that was abandoned for decades before being transformed into the urban oasis you see today. Join your guide on a quick stroll, offering a chance to admire its cutting-edge design, a landscape of local plants, open green spaces, and public art.

I think I’m more upset that we did not remember the tour guides name but he was fabulous & we would definitely take another tour with him. My sisters & I enjoyed every second with his knowledge, the stories he shared & the comfortable conversations and the sites we got to see.

Roof of the bus was open which was nice. Guide could have been better and was hard to hear in the back. Asked him to use the microphone but he kept forgetting and the traffic with the open roof made it hard to hear even when he did.

Hello Susan, thank you for taking the time write your review. We appreciate your input and will make sure those microphones are in optimal condition! We asked the tour guides to check the PA system volume too... Regards, Pedro

Barb_H
, Apr 2022
We learned a lot of historical and interesting facts on the bus ride. However, one major clarification needs to be put on the website- if you buy the Edge tickets- you do not get to see the last portion of the tour and you are on your own for getting back as the bus leaves you at the Edge. We were not informed of this until we got on the bus.

Bus ride and walking New York experience.
Rebecca_S
, Apr 2022
Rachel was amazing! She gave us insight into the city of New York as well as how to *be* a New Yorker: where to shop, eat, even use the subway. Highly recommended. Note this is not a bus ride only. There is walking involved for a full tourist experience.

Only bad thing was when the edge closed the observation deck and no tour guide was with us to help us. But when I contacted you the US guide tour company, they sorted it out smoothly.

Interesting but not the best
ASHLEY_W
, Apr 2022
The tour was interesting but I thought I got the glass top bus and did not. We traveled with a bunch of people who had difficulty walking which just turned miserable. The guide seemed funny at first but turned out to be pretty rude. She even almost took us into NJ by accident and telling the driver where to go. Poor guy had to perform a U turn in traffic. Overall it was ok. I still would recommend it. We also thought we were being dropped off at the same location we picked up but because we got the Edge tickets we couldn't.

Hello Ashley, thank you for your comments, we are sorry that your tour was not what you expected. We value your information and would try to make the necessary adjustments to make it better. Regards, USA Guided Tours NY management.
