About the All Loops 48-Hour Tour - Gray Line New York
Gray Line New York's classic double-decker bus tours allow visitors to experience New York City in an up close and comfortable way. The All Loops Tour package gives ticketholders 48 hours to take all four of the Gray Line's bus itineraries or "loops": Uptown, Downtown, Night (aka the Night Tour) and Brooklyn. Each lasts a little more than two hours, and ticketholders can take them in any order, whenever they are available. Offered in open double-decker buses, these tours offer a unique perspective for touring New York: above the crowds of pedestrians, but still surrounded by the vitality of one of the greatest cities in history.
The Uptown loop includes sights like Lincoln Center, the American Museum of Natural History, the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine, Grant's Tomb and the Apollo Theater. The Downtown Loop hits Times Square, Madison Square Garden, Macy's, the Empire State Building, Greenwich Village, Chinatown and more. Both of these loops have "hop on, hop off" service – passengers can get off at Gray Line bus stops in front of the attractions that interest them, and then get on the next available bus when they're ready.
The Brooklyn Loop and the Night Tour are not hop-on, hop-off. The Brooklyn Loop crosses the Manhattan Bridge – an exhilarating view from the open top deck –and travels through DUMBO to Grand Army Plaza, Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Public Library and the beautiful and historic brownstones of Fort Greene. The Night Tour covers many of the sights of the Downtown Loop, but now brilliantly lit up for the evening: the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, the Brooklyn Bridge, Rockefeller Center and more.
All of the tours include knowledgeable tour guides who explain the history and significance of the sights.

The All Loops package is perfect for visitors who have a limited amount of time in the city, and want the freedom to investigate the sights that interest them the most – especially if they are not quite sure what those sights will be ahead of time.
Good for kids?
Kids will love the view from on top of the bus and the variety of the hop-on, hop-off policy.
