We couldn’t agree more with Jamie Carr’s NYCTourist blog post that New York has so much to offer, and that “the absolute best way to make sure you get the total New Yorker experience is to take a tour.” On that note, THE RIDE is extremely proud to be featured as a Top Off the Beaten Path New York City Tour on nyctourist.com. See what NYCTourist had to say, below:
Get a tour of the city and a production all in one! The RIDE is NYC’s largest tour bus, which features state-of-the-art audio/visual technology, stadium seating, and massive windows to see the sights. As you drive through Midtown Manhattan, your enthusiastic tour guide will tell you historical facts about the NYC landmarks you drive by, as well as point out the live actors, dancers, and singers performing along the route! We love this tour as it is an entirely different experience from your typical NYC tour, and you’ll stay warm (or cool, depending on the season) as you stay inside the bus for the entire 75 minute ride.

The experience involves motion, sideways seating on the bus, constant starting and stopping, loud music, sounds effects, theatrical and strobe lighting, multiple television screens, and virtual reality moments specifically on THE DOWNTOWN EXPERIENCE.
