Some tours cruise around entire cities, while others focus more on individual neighborhoods and destinations. Almost every major city offers visitors some sort of bus tour, but a few go above and beyond to give out-of-towners a memorable experience.

So never mind the Segway’s; today, we’ll look at a few of the best bus tour cities in the country!

San Francisco

The Golden Gate City is home to a diverse selection of bus tours, including night tours that allow visitors to see the city uniquely after dark. Other tours allow visitors to hop on and off at will to stop and see the sights. These tours trek through the city’s most colorful neighborhoods and stop at several must-see attractions, including Chinatown and Pier 39. And, of course, no tour of San Francisco would be complete without a ride over the Golden Gate Bridge!

New York City

Anyone who’s ever driven through the streets of Manhattan knows there’s an added incentive to taking a bus in the Big Apple. Fortunately, New York City’s bus tours are widely regarded as some of the best in the world. These tours provide tourists a stress-free way to get an up-close look at the city that never sleeps. You can also find themed tours, such as one that takes passengers to the sites where scenes from famous movies have been filmed. In New York City, there’s truly a bus tour for everyone.


It might be windy, but it’s also home to some of the most beautiful urban designs in the country. You could easily spend days cruising around the streets of Chicago before you run out of sights to see. Many of Chicago’s bus tours are hop-on-hop-off tours that allow visitors to stop and check out the areas they’re most interested in. Swing by historic Wrigley Field, snap a photo in the Cloud Gate and stop to catch a breathtaking city view at the Willis Tower Skydeck.
