Little is as impressive as autumn on the east coast of North America, a perfect time of year to witness the superb spectacle of colour in the Fall or Autumn - whichever.

Boston harbour was a mess a generation ago, and the docks like all docks have changed from the warehouses to containers. That means the old warehouses are now offices and apartments and the seafront is totally different, the water cleaned up.

Midtown does not have the same ring to it as Downtown or Uptown, but it does have more than a few great gems from Grand Central Station to the Rockefeller Centre, to Madison Gardens to the Hudson River. The bus makes them easy and gives you knowledge and tips, we share some with you, but the tour will give...

These tours do make New York so much clearer. I felt I knew it a little after the three tours, whereas when I went there before I was shell shocked and confused. We chose Big Bus as we had met them in Rome and they let us film. Thanks Big Bus because it means we have three very good...
