Taking a tour is a great way to learn about a new city, and more fun than just taking the city test at city hall. Learn outdoors with this Groupon.

Aboard double-decker sightseeing buses, visitors can discover uptown or downtown neighborhoods, hopping off periodically to explore landmarks such as the Empire State Building, Central Park, and Times Square. Sightseers can hop on and off as often as they please, with buses arriving at each stop every two hours for the uptown tour, and every thirty minutes for the downtown tour.

Groupons can be redeemed at either the Empire State Building or Times Square, with the full 2-2.5 hour uptown or downtown tours launching from both sites.

Big Taxi Tours

From its name, one might think Big Taxi Tours whisks visitors around town aboard giant taxi cabs—and they'd be right. The touring company transports customers on double-decker buses painted taxi-cab yellow and embellished with the signature checkered stripe, paying homage to the city's ubiquitous taxis and bright yellow Statue of Liberty. From their seat aboard the bus, guests can discover hotspots in downtown and uptown, and hop off to explore landmarks including the Empire State Building and Times Square.
