We booked the Big Bus hop on/off bus whilst visiting NY. The ticket covered 48 hrs.. We saw so much of the city and the guide told us lots of interesting facts aboutthe places/buildings we passed. The first ride we did we stayed on the bus the whole time, then did a second trip and got off at the places we were interested in. On second day we used the bus to get to Battry Park to use ferry. We really enjoyed our bus rides and thought it was a great way to see the city. Would recommend!
