One of the best ways for visitors to enjoy NYC is on a sightseeing bus tour. These tips will help you to make the most of your limited vacation time, and see the most of New York City in a convenient and affordable way:
Take your sightseeing bus tour on a weekday
- Sightseeing tours on weekdays are less crowded than on weekends. It’s as simple as that. You are more likely to have some elbow room, and more likely able to find seats together for your family or group, both of which will increase enjoyment of your tour experience.
Avoid taking a sightseeing bus tour during rush hour
- New York City is no different than other big cities around the world, with cars, busses, taxis, trucks and pedestrians all sharing limited the space. Traffic is especially busy in morning and afternoon rush hours, when New Yorkers are heading to and from work and trucks are making deliveries. Avoid taking a bus tour during rush hour, to avoid being stuck in gridlock traffic.
Get on the bus early
- Where you sit determines how well you will be able to see the sights during the tour, and photograph them without being obstructed by others. The first people on the bus head for the seats by the windows inside, and also fill up the open-air top deck of the bus. So, being at the front of the line guarantees you one of the best seats on the bus.
Check the weather forecast
- Mother Nature can wreak havoc on your sightseeing bus tour plans. Clearly, it’s no fun sitting on the top deck in drenching rain or a snowstorm. In bad weather, your photos will capture a grey and dreary New York City. That’s not how you want to remember your visit, and its not how Go New York Tours wants you to remember your sightseeing but tour experience. Choose a picture perfect day, for perfect pictures.
