A bus is one of the most efficient ways to take a group of sightseers around a city, much more so than luring people into a giant burlap sack and then having it carried by a man with powerful calves. Get on the bus with today's Groupon: for $18, you get a one-day sightseeing bus tour of New York City with Deals 4 Tours (a $36 value).
Deals 4 Tours' nine-hour, air-conditioned New York City Bus Tour makes seven stops, letting passengers stretch their legs at well-known New York City sights. Enthusiastic guides will enthusiastically share city tidbits at stops including Ground Zero, Wall Street, where all the businesspeople wear money-covered suits, and the water, where there's a beautiful view of the skyline, the Statue of Liberty, and the Brooklyn Bridge. Wave to the sun atop the towering Empire State Building, and keep eyes peeled for celebrities outside NBC Studios.
