Enjoy the new Downtown Experience tour and view New York City like never before!

The Downtown Experience is a brand new 90-minute tour created by the producers of The RIDE. This tour gives you an all-new view of Downtown Manhattan with tour guides that tell fascinating historical tales along the way. You will even get a taste of virtual reality on the tour as gadgets provided by Timelooper are handed out to each passenger on the bus.

The purchase of a New York Pass does not guarantee access to The Downtown Experience tour. You will first have to visit The Downtown Experience's box office at Pier 15, 78 South Street and present your New York Pass to receive a ticket for the bus. Tickets will be given out to customers on a first-come-first-serve basis due to limited availability. The tour is also only offered in English.

No reservations can be made in advance for this bus tour.
