Tour Details

Experience awesome New York City sites at night, as you hop aboard our comfortable tour bus for a comprehensive, fully-guided bus tour of NYC at night. Your tour guide will accompany you and will get off with you at each stop, helping you see a different side of New York City.

This 4.5-hour guided night bus tour includes stops at the High Line Park, Pier 17, Little Island on Hudson River, Grand Central Station, Hudson Yards, Pier 17 at the South Street Seaport, and Times Square! The tour starts at 5:30 pm in the Times Square area on 7th Avenue, between 50th and 51st Streets (in the middle of the block), and ends at 10 pm at the same location.

We leave our starting/ending location in Times Square and go to our first stop - one of the most fascinating attractions in New York City - the High Line Park. The stop includes a 15-minute walk on the elevated, linear park that was originally a railway dating back to the industrial days of the west side of Manhattan.

We continue our guided walk to NYC's newest outdoor space - Little Island - a 2.4-acre public park on the Hudson River.

Off to Pier 17 at the historic South Street Seaport for magnificent views of the Downtown Brooklyn skyline and the iconic Brooklyn Bridge at night!

Our next stop is Grand Central Terminal for a quick indoor tour of this iconic NYC landmark and the views of the Chrysler Building and NYC's newest skyscraper - One Vanderbilt!

The bus heads back to the heart of NYC - Times Square, back to our original starting point on 7th Avenue and 51st Street. If you purchased Top of The Rock Observatory tickets - 50th Street and 6th Avenue is the last stop.

Top of the Rock Observation Deck is perched 70 stories above at Rockefeller Center and offers a 3-floors of panoramic, 360-degree views unequaled anywhere else in New York City. Explore all the architecture and landmarks by day or sunset, including the Empire State Building and Chrysler Building, or become memorized by the lights of the city that never sleeps.

Additional sites and neighborhoods you'll also see from the comfort of your bus include the Tribeca neighborhood, where celebrities Robert De Niro and Taylor Swift live, Midtown East, Battery Park City, Soho, the Chelsea Piers, the West Village, the Financial District, the Meatpacking District, the three bridges along the East River - Brooklyn Bridge, Williamsburg Bridge, and Manhattan Bridge, the Empire State Building, the United Nations Building, One World Trade Center, the MetLife Building, the Chrysler Building, and more!
