“In New York, concrete jungle
where dreams are made of
There’s nothin’ you can’t do
Now you’re in New York
These streets will make you
feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Let’s hear it for New York,
New York, New York”

I think that Alicia Keys and Jay-Z summed it up pretty well. New York really is like being on another planet; a great melting pot of culture, design, architecture, and attitude.

My brother and I visited NYC a few years ago, and had a great time sightseeing in the city and visiting the Empire State Building. For my first visit to New York, I decided to go with a classic – the New York Classic Double Decker Tour, to be precise – to gain a nice overview of New York City and Manhattan.

It’s easy to get lost in the endless sights and sounds and lights everywhere, and this tour covers the major sightseeing spots and landmarks of the city.

You will enjoy the best sights in Manhattan during the day and at night, with unlimited hop-on, hop-off service at over 40 stops on our double decker bus. There is an Uptown Loop, Downtown Loop, Brooklyn Loop, and The Night Loop, and your pass is good for 48 hours to use as you wish.

Plus, this fun-filled tour includes a ticket for the ferry to the Statue of Liberty / Ellis Island AND admission ticket to either the Empire State Building or the Top of the Rock Observation Deck. What more could you ask for? Well, stopping for pizza along the way of course, if you’re like me. 8)

San Francisco Double Decker Tours – Hop On and Hop Off

Sunday, February 3rd, 2008

San Francisco Tours recently announced that they have expanded their current selection of tours and activities in San Francisco, California with a Double Decker Bus Tour around the city.

This hop-on and hop-off sightseeing city tour departs every half hour daily from 9:00am until 5:00pm.  Guests enjoy the luxury and comfort of brand new buses with the added benefit of a two-day unlimited use ticket.  The tour covers the major sights of San Francisco in a loop.  The on and off flexibility can make the tour last for two full days by visiting exciting attractions, museums, shopping, and dining facilities.  Guests can create their own tour by choosing where to stop and for how long.

The tour features entertaining and informative narration.  If you choose to ride the entire loop, the tour lasts approximately 1hr 45 minutes.  If you are new to San Francisco, one option to consider is to ride the entire loop to get a good feel for what you will want to go back and visit as you hop-off and hop-on at various stops on the loop.  In a full day on the San Francisco Double Decker Hop-On and Hop-Off Bus Tour, you can make approximately 5-6 stops to visit many attractions.
