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 films to explain This is the blue route, but please take a look at the others; Big Bus red route, DownTown and the Purple Midtown Route. I add there may always be a detour, it happens in New York especially on Sundays, but this is pretty much the route as planned. Normally first bus leaves at 8am and the last bus leaves 6pm, from near the Big Bus very helpful customer information centre in Time Square near M&M World. Tip, wear something warm if it is chilly, don’t stand up especially on this route, and keep your head down as trees and traffic signals hurt! Our film has a lot in it, but no where near all you will see and take in from the great guides.

Diana Smith, Office Manager & National Project Coordinator in New York for Big Bus said of our three films. “You make me want to take a tour I have done thousands of times again!”
