OnBoard New York Tours operates the Only Comprehensive Guided Tour of New York City. Our tour guides hop off the shuttle bus with you at each attraction, showing you the city in detail.

This is the iconic New York that so many visitors
imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like
the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building,
iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal
and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop
hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is
a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of
store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the

Can you charter the bus for 7 people and pick up from a hotel in Elizabeth, NJ?

In my experience, they would not do this for 7 people. The bus normally carries about 30 people and we met it at a pre-determined location. There are services on NYC that do private tours, though.

Hi mate, yeah you go to ellis. Dont pay to look through the register. Its a rip off. Walk outside and look for the name on the wall. Its all alphabetical and easy to find. A friend found there grandparents in under a minute.
