Viator will not let you know what bus contractor for NYC Flex Pass you end up with BEFORE BUYING. Greyline hop off hop on bus staff at times were rude and lacked at times truthfull info about benefits with our pass. When we asked several staff at 8th ave. station and on bus all told us the twilight cruise was avail at 7:30 pm. at pier 78. No one showed up. There were 30 people, including Irish and Finish tourists waiting with us. I felt so bad for them. When I called the customer service number while still at pier I had to call twice they told us regardless of what website says Dec 31- Sept? 7:30 pm , the ferry was and has not run since last Fall. I asked for a manager to call me both times. I am now back in Ohio from my trip and have still not received a phone call. We used the bus to get from here to there when time allowed. I even bought the VIP tag and that helped two times to jump the lines, but otherwise the NYC traffic is slow and we would either walk, taxis or subway it to attractions. Tour guides on bus were majority of the time rude to people for asking fair and square questions. Usually questions to clarify what tour guide did not make clear. Some had nothing more interesting to say except how much money it costs to rent in various buildings in Manhatten. We had only two tour guides on the bus that we experienced that were friendly and knowledgeable. Unfortunately, the rudeness was the majority of the time and effected us even when directly not getting the brunt of it. Wish I had a pic of the thirty people waiting at Pier 78 for the ferry that never came. I bought seven attractions and we averaged 2-3 a day. three was pushing it with travel time etc.

what to expect

This hop-on hop-off pass is the easiest and most fun way to get around sprawling New York City. Explore this thriving metropolis at your own pace, as the pass is good for 72 hours. You’ll have as much time as you like at your selected destinations and can then just hop back on the next deluxe double-decker bus (arrives every 20–30 minutes).

In addition to hassle-free transportation that is an activity in itself, tickets to three, five or seven attractions are included. Choose from New York’s most iconic destinations, like the Top of the Rock’s observation deck, Radio City Music Hall, Lincoln Center and more.

Listen to your entertaining and informative guide illuminate the city with stories of how it came to be what it is today. Explore New York’s diverse neighborhoods and must-see places on your own. Use this all-access pass to get back on the bus at your leisure, and it’s on to the next destination of your choosing: walk through Central Park, the most-visited public park in the US; take in the exciting chaos of Times Square; get an art fix at the Guggenheim; peruse SoHo’s trendy shops; or eat your way through Chinatown and Little Italy. Whatever you choose, you’ll have three full days to explore more than 40 stops. If you choose to do an entire loop, each of the three loops takes between two and three hours to complete.

And if you’re not able to fit in everything you’d like to during the day, this pass also offers the opportunity to embark on a night tour (not hop-on hop-off) to see New York’s dazzling lights from the top of the open-air, double-decker bus. If you choose that option, hop aboard (and get your camera ready) to see sparkling Times Square, the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges, the Empire State Building and more.
