Horrible Service

I give a Three star, just to the Empire State and not the BigBus service, the traffic is horrible in NY as you know, so it takes forever for the tour to circle all Manhattan and uptown, I do not recommend it, you will waste a full day sitting in a Bus. I suggest learn the subway routes and use it instead, way faster.
The employees are not professionals at all but Sales people hustle in people to Bus.
Not enough buses

I would not recommend the big bus to hop on and off throughout the day. It is too crowded and they oversell tickets. There was a huge line at 9:30am when we got to the m&m stop. We had to wait an hour for a bus. At the end of the day we had to wait an hour and a half to get a bus back to Times Square from the battery park location. Buses kept coming but no one was getting off so it took forever to get on. The ticket agent said that they were calling for an empty bus for us but that never happened.
