What people are saying about Brooklyn
Had a GREAT time riding Big Bus. All of the representatives on the street were nice and very helpful. The stops are strategically placed close to all the major areas of attractions to allow easy walking to. It’s definitely well worth the price to get around the city all day. Highly recommended!
The bus trips went smoothly and were quite pleasant! Watch on the uptown loop for low lying branches if you are on the right side of the bus upper deck!
