Double Decker Bus Tour

Double Decker Bus Tour

“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)

Affordable Tours Feature San Francisco Highlights

Thursday, January 8th, 2009

It is almost impossible to get to everything on one trip to San Francisco, but for those who are interested in a tour that provides a comprehensive overview of the city, the San Francisco City Tour is an excellent choice.  It departs several times daily from Fisherman’s Wharf and takes you past many of the major landmarks in the city, most notably the Golden Gate Bridge, Ghirardelli Square, and the Palace of Fine Arts.  It is often possible to stop at the Golden Gate Bridge and Twin Peaks, weather and traffic permitting.

This tour lasts for three and a half hours and is a great way to see many of the city’s landmarks under the tutelage of a friendly and informative tour guide.  The tour provides tremendous value and covers a wide variety of locations of interest, including but not limited to: Nob Hill, Golden Gate Park, the Financial District, the Opera House, and Union Square. 

There is so much to see on this tour that you will never be bored.  I would give this exciting tour two thumbs up for covering a whole day’s worth of activities in under four hours.  When you finish your tour, head over to Chinatown for an incredible Chinese meal as a perfect end to the day!

San Francisco is a place that everyone needs to visit at least once.  For more information on how to make your San Francisco vacation the best that it can be, visit

See Where the Stars Play in ‘The Magic City’

Thursday, October 23rd, 2008

Miami is considered to be a global city based on its pivotal role in finance, media, entertainment, commerce, the arts, and international trade.  It is home base for many company headquarters, TV studios, and banks.  Many young people also flock to the South Beach area for spring break because of its dynamic night life.  South Beach was the first section of Miami Beach to be developed and it has seen a booming economy and increased tourism over the years.

For a wonderful overview of the Miami area as a whole, take the combination Miami City Tour & Biscayne Cruise.  This tour spends 2 hours visiting the most popular tourist hot spots in South Florida.  You will go through the downtown Miami area and financial district as well as Little Havana and Coconut Grove on your way to the Biscayne portion of the day.

On the Biscayne Bay Cruise, you will see million dollar homes on Star Island – an artificial oval-shaped island located between Miami and the island of Miami Beach – from up close.  This is a public neighborhood but it is manned by a guard in a guard house to give the impression that it is exclusive and private.  Many stars have called this area home including Will Smith, Madonna, Rosie O’Donnell, and Gloria Estefan.

This tour and cruise take 6 hours combined, with 2 hours devoted to the Miami City Tour.  For scenic views and an inside look at how the other half lives, book your space on this tour and cruise combo and you will be glad that you did!
