The Ride sightseeing tours offer travelers a truly unique way to check out New York’s top landmarks and famous attractions. The buses feature floor-to-ceiling windows and glass-top roofs, and the seating faces the windows, coliseum style. Tours includes comedian guides and interactive street theater.
The Ride’s 75-minute journey takes passengers on a 4.2-mile (6.8-kilometer) ride through Midtown Manhattan, highlighting key spots along the way. Sights include Radio City Music Hall, Times Square, and Bryant Park. Travelers can choose from a single experience on the Ride or opt for a combo package and pair the Ride with other attractions like a Circle Line cruise or a stop at Madame Tussauds or the Hard Rock Café.
