What You'll Get
Up until the new millennium, buses were reserved for transporting grade-school orchestras to minor-league baseball stadiums so they could play at halftime. With today’s Groupon, relive the excitement of charter-bus band trips without the hand checks and spit valves. For $30, you get a comfortable round-trip ride to New York City in a luxury charter bus from Superior Tours (a $60 value). This Groupon is valid for same-day travel only.
Day trips are a fun way to enjoy a Sunday or a weekday when you can't take extra days off, and letting someone else do the driving frees you up to work on your latest knitting project or crack open a page-turning Kindle. The friendly folks at Superior Tours will pick you up at any of three convenient Baltimore locations and drop you off in the center of the action at Times Square and Rockefeller Center. The approximately three-hour-and-15-minute trip leaves between 6:15 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. (depending on day and departure locale), so you'll have a full day of Big Apple bliss. The towering luxury charter bus provides a smooth ride several feet off the ground, with comfortable arm and headrests for morning and evening nappers. Each return trip features an entertaining movie to watch for when you tire of staring at the colorful psychedelic upholstery and the friendly attendants along to answer shopping queries and are-we-there-yets.
Once you arrive, New York City will happily acquiesce to most shopping and sightseeing desires. The Metropolitan Museum of Art and a matinee on Broadway impart a taste of culture. Ride the 60-foot indoor Ferris wheel at Toys “R” Us or get personalized chocolate kisses from Hershey's Times Square, which make a delectable and thoughtful birthday gift or a hilariously cruel inside joke for your office beach party. However you choose to spend your day trip, Superior Tours will be waiting to get you home safely.
Groupon not valid on Saturdays.
Past Groupon buyers loved the deal:
- I’ve been enjoying taking the Superior Tours bus to NYC for years. A great, pleasant solution (especially for an unemployed person!) to getting there without having either to drive or to survive the expense of the train. – Mary T., Groupon Discussion

About Superior Tours
When Superior Tours looks for new drivers, it wants polite, reliable, and personable people, and it doesn't even consider those with fewer than five years of experience. Its drivers all work only for Superior Tours so that they can be on time and well rested for each trip. Luxury, 54-passenger motorcoaches pick up groups from the airport, ferry people to New York City for a day of urban exploration, or steer toward Atlantic City where passengers can hit the slots. The company also programs charter trips for corporate outings, church trips, and charter-bus-of-the-month clubs.
