Want to tour the Big Apple in a big way without spending big bucks to do it? Then CitySights NY is the way to go. Their philosophy?: “Provide the highest quality services we can at the fairest prices we can.” Love it.
Speaking from personal experience, these guys are great. Although I had been to NY many times, I had never taken an official tour of the city until last year. I hopped on one of CitySights NY’s hop-on, hop-off double-decker buses and learned more and saw more in 4 hours than I had in all of my other visits combined.
Being able to get on and off whenever you want will save you a fortune in cab fare, too. But they provide way more than just bus tours. Check it:

See? They have something to interest anyone. CitySights NY can also hook you up with tickets to all of the city’s attractions, as well as Broadway shows. Their guides have been highly trained to provide you with tons of facts and info, and are “encouraged to express their personalities as urban storytellers.” The guide I had was hilarious – I felt like Seinfeld was driving the bus, which was cool because I wouldn’t trust Kramer behind the wheel.
If you want a more private, intimate experience, they also offer VIP tours in luxury SUVs or vans for 4, 6, or 8 hours. These are perfect for families or small groups and you can choose a chauffeur who’s fluent in many languages, including English, German, Czech, Russian, Chinese, French, Greek, Italian, Hebrew, Ukrainian, Polish, Portuguese, Slovak, and Spanish.
CitySightsNY is part of the Twin America group of companies, licensed by New York City, and has been recognized as a leader in the tourism industry for more than twenty years.
New York is the city that never sleeps, so wake up to the opportunity that CitySightsNY gives you to make the most of your visit. I know I’m glad I did.
