PostSubject: NYC Double Decker Bus Tours?   NYC Double Decker Bus Tours? Icon_minitimeThu Dec 04, 2008 2:51 pm

I am trying to add a tour to my trip to NYC this Saturday. Can any of the NY folks tell me about the double decker bus tours? Or any OTHER tour. We want to hit all of the hot spots and keep it easy and fun for the kids.

Any suggestions? Very Happy

Michele, we did the double decker bus tour a few years ago. But we froze because they wer all open on top and even if you were below, the cold air just swooped in.

I would definately do it again, but in the summer. But maybe someone knows if there are closed ones also.

Michele, I just emailed you - try Gray Lines:

They are excellent!

Unfortunately yes - you could ride in the lower part of the bus which is enclosed but the views aren't nearly as good. The only other tour company I know is http://www.citysightsny.com/ but, I've never used them or even been on them so I can't vouch if they'll be as good as Gray Lines.

I've seen these darting around the city - I think they actually enclose their buses for bad weather.

That's what it looked like to me as well....that they enclose them.

Hmmmm, decisions decisions.
