New York Double-Decker Bus Night Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Manhattan transforms into a city of lights as soon as the sun sets. Avoid crowded sidewalks and subways, and instead enjoy views of the NYC borough’s landmarks from the open-air top of a double-decker bus. As you drive over the Brooklyn Bridge, get panoramic views of the glittering Manhattan skyline reflected in the East River.
  • Unobstructed views from the top of a double-decker bus
  • Avoid the hassle of navigating streets and subways in the dark
  • Panoramic views of the Manhattan skyline across the Brooklyn Bridge
  • Onboard guide provides interesting facts about each landmark passed
What to Expect
Your evening begins in Manhattan’s Theater District. Climb aboard the double-decker bus and head to the top level for unobstructed views of the city. As the sun sets, snap photos of popular neighborhoods, including Times Square, Greenwich Village, Chinatown, and SoHo. An onboard guide ensures you never miss a landmark and provides a wealth of information about each one you pass. Relax on the bus, as you pass the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, and the Manhattan Bridge illuminated under the night sky. On this tour, you avoid streets and subways that are notoriously crowded at this time of day. Continue across the Brooklyn Bridge for rare views of the Manhattan skyline shimmering over the East River. Around 8pm, end the night back at your centrally located departure point.
