With The Tour, gone are the days of terrible sightseeing, where everyone is crammed onto a crowded bus and made to sit facing the same way, craning their necks to see past their seatmate's shoulders and out the window.
Instead, the producers of The Ride have created The Tour: a 90-minute VIP tour that ferries passengers past landmarks and into iconic neighborhoods on a patented motor coach with coliseum-style seating and a floor-to-ceiling glass pane. It's the best way for passengers to see the sites head-on without ever fighting their neighbor for a window seat or asking the driver if they can sit on his shoulders.
THE TOUR passes by Times Square, Trump Tower, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Juilliard, FAO Schwartz, Radio City Music Hall, Rockefeller Center, and many other famous locations. Inside the temperature-controlled vehicle, tour specialists tell tales about each location. They augment their stories with heavily researched audio and visual presentations that detail the history and growth of Manhattan. Tours often feature a few exciting surprises along the way.
