OnBoard Tours’ NY See the Best! Tour reveals the wonders of New York City during a three-hour whirlwind excursion highlighting Manhattan’s most iconic and beloved attractions. Beginning just north of Times Square, the bus rolls through the glass-and-steel mountain range’s concrete valleys past sights such as Rockefeller Center and St. Patrick’s Cathedral, stopping periodically so that passengers can hop out to take photos and read the bronze plaques’ mysterious hieroglyphics. Further downtown, the economic grandeur of Wall Street complements the proud tradition of City Hall, and the Statue of Liberty charms hearts with her stirring, stoic expression and waving kerchief. Throughout the tour, an erudite guide spins quick tales of the city’s history punctuated by nuggets of trivia on architecture and culture.
There are five main reasons to choose OnBoard Tours for your voyage through New York, Washington D.C., or Las Vegas. First, the tour guides don't just deliver their spiels from the comfort of the bus, they'll hop off with their passengers for a more up-close look. Second, riders need a ticket for the comfortable, climate-controlled buses, so no tourist will be left unseated on the trip. Third, they limit each group to 35 people, meaning everyone can see and hear the guide at all times, and will have a chance to ask them specific questions. (And small, private tours can also be arranged.) Fourth, the guides are all locals, and tell stories from an insider's point of view. Finally, all tours feature free water bottles, allowing guests to stay hydrated, save money, and avoid the hassle of trying to drink from any decorative fountains.
