Touring around the Big Apple: Site Review
When in London, we enjoyed touring some on double decker buses that take
you around the city. These types of tours give you a front row seat to
getting an up-close view of a city without having to walk for miles.
I came across this site - NewYork City Sightseeing, which is offering a variety of double decker tours around New York City. We plan to use when we visit the Big Apple, as the traffic can be a nightmare if you drive yourself. A taxicab can add up quick just going a few blocks. The pricing is reasonable, and you can get $5 off per ticket by visiting their website in the above link. I want to see numerous sites around the city, including the Statue of Liberty at night, and to take in a David Letterman show. They also offer a harbor cruise, where you get a tour that explains about the growth of the city, as you view Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty, and large buildings that dominate the city. There are so many photo opportunities within NYC, and the tour stops at most of them. In the downtown area of the city, buses stop at 26 locations. The company also offers specials on lots of local attractions, with scheduled trips every day to nearby cities as well (including Washington DC, Philadelphia (includes the Amish country), and Boston).
