Day trips are an ideal way for anyone to learn more about a new city without resorting to drastic measures such as running for mayor. Get acquainted with New York City the easy way with today's Groupon: for $31, you get a round-trip charter bus ride from Baltimore to NYC from Superior Tours (a $63 value). This Groupon is not valid on Saturdays.
Superior Tours bridges the distance between the Big Apple and Baltimore with a fleet of luxury charter buses that whisk patrons to NYC for one-day jaunts. Horseless carriages rendezvous with 12-hour trippers at one of three locations between 6:15 a.m. and 7:30 a.m., depending on the day and the pickup locale. Eyes take in elevated views through bus windows as appendages sink into comfy armrests and headrests, pampering patrons until their arrival in the Big Apple's core-shaped heart. The city is a veritable playground of possibilities—patrons can ride the ferris wheel in Toys "R" Us Times Square, skip through Central Park, or explore the interactive Bodies exhibit at the South Street Seaport, knowing the charter waits to transport them homeward come sundown. After patrons are picked up at Rockefeller Center, a movie aired on the vehicle’s plethora of TV screens provides visual stimuli for weary passengers and freeloading bugs on windshields.
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.
