I need to mention that you can only have a good view while sitting on the top deck of the bus and there is no way to enjoy the city while sitting inside on the lower deck in case of rainy weather (which was the case on our second day). It also looked that this bus company doesn't have enough vehicles as we had to wait quite long to get on the bus while another bus company parking next to our stop had their buses departing almost every 10 minutes.
We really enjoyed the night tour on our first day with a wonderful guide and the water cruise.
The bus experience was really good. Nice boattrip included seeing manhattan.
