"Unique bus and a great tour"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

The bus which allows everybody to face the same way and see the same thing is a great concept. Our tour guide (I believe her name was Claire) was very knowledgeable and personable. This was an excellent way to see Manhattan and learn its history. I would not hesitate to recommend this to anybody.

"The Ride of your life!!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed February 21, 2019 NEW
Just back from NYC after a few days away with my husband and a couple of friends. We had booked The Ride before arriving after purchasing the New York City pass as it looked such fun on the website. It certainly lived up to and exceeded all expectations. Our two hosts were entertaining and fun and the interactive bus was very cool. Don’t want to give too much away but what I will say is there was a surprise around every corner!! Highly recommend this attraction, we did the 9.15 pm ride and would deff do it again.
