sightseeing bus 2

Although I enjoyed seeing the sights from the top of a bus, I have to say I was really disappointed with the Gray Line tour.  Firstly it was very expensive in comparison to to equivalent tours elsewhere.  Secondly the tour guide was useless; he spent so long telling us what a great guy the driver was and how we might like to 'remember' him financially when we got off, that he missed many of the places along the way - often telling us about them long after we'd passed them.

With a one-day 'fun' pass (valid on the Subway and NYC buses) costing only $4 (although it has since increased to $7) I reckon you'll probably have a much better time doing it yourself, with a guidebook.
