Grayline tours NY, cabs and buses

Jump to last reply

I had initially planned on the Grayline bus tours with the NY Pass but are having second thoughts after reading the post below (http://www.fodors.com/forums/threadselect.jsp?fid=1)

I've searched this forum and most people though have enjoyed it the hop on/hop off. I had chosen the bus tour initially because I had heard that the public buses can be too crowded and slow plus I was reluctant to learn the system/routes.

Now thinking about it, the whole Grayline bus tour now does seem quite expensive considering that we might not enjoy the upper deck anyway given that the flight of stairs might be too difficult with a stroller, toddler and backpack in tow. These things would also make both public transporation system - buses and subway - difficult. So now I'm leaning towards taking cabs wherever we go. PERTINENT QUESTIONS ARE: HOW EASY WOULD IT BE TO HAIL A CAB? AND HOW ABUNDANT ARE THE CABS? AND PREVIOUS POSTS HAVE DESCRIBED NY CAB FARES AS REASONABLE - ARE THEY STILL ARE?

As for the NY Pass, I'm also re-thinking it. I'm certain we won't make use of everything and most of the tours (NBC etc) will not allow a toddler in. It can also be quite restrictive. I imagine we will try to make full use of it. On one hand, visits to the wax museum, circle line 2hr cruise, empire state bldg deck are enough to break us even...

I obviously have a dilemma folks and as we grow closer to our trip date, I am sinking into a panic mode. I'm now thinking cabs first, play it by ear with the hop on/hop off and let that be an option to just see the sights from up there without getting off. HELP PLS!
