We'll drive all night on our deluxe motorcoach, arriving in NYC around 8:30 am (November 28th) depending on weather and traffic. You will be given maps and descriptions of the many different things you will be able to see and do during your time there. Your Driver/Escort will be available with all kinds of good suggestions and instructions for getting around to the places you want to see most! There's just no place like New York City at Christmas-Time!! The driver must have time off for sleeping, of course, so you will be free and on your own to enjoy the day until 10:00 PM when you will re-board the coach for the ride home. We'll make rest stops every few hours.
You are going to have a WONDERFUL time experiencing the sights and sounds of New York City at this special Holiday time. If you think you'd like to see an afternoon Broadway show, you can purchase reduced-price tickets at the TKTS booth for many of the shows. But be assured, there is PLENTY to do if you don't want to spend time at a theater. You will wish you could stay longer, guaranteed! We're gonna' have Christmas fun, NYC-style!!
New York Sightseeing:
Spend your day in New York City on a Gray Line New York Sightseeing Tour. Gray Line's New York Loop Tours are a great way to enjoy and see everything New York City has to offer. The tours take place on double decker buses so you are high above everyone and they travel through the streets so you feel like you are a part of the action. Plus, the tours offer you Hop On Hop Off privileges so you can easily enjoy all the sights that you want to see. The best way to experience New York City for a day in our opinion is to choose either the Downtown Loop or Uptown Loop. To buy tickets please go to the Gray Line New York Sightseeing Website.
** Gray Line New York Sightseeing Tour tickets are NOT included in this package. Gray Line New York Sightseeing is one of our sister companies through Coach USA.

- Overnight Tours Under $150 > $25 Deposit
- Overnight Tours $150-$800 > $75 Deposit
- Overnight Tours $801-$1,500 > $100 Deposit

Up to 30 days prior to departure date, a full refund will be made. *Air and cruise tours, and some longer tours, may be different—be sure to ask for details when making your reservation. Tours including tickets also generally have earlier non-refundable dates. There are no refunds for cancellations made within 30 days prior to your departure date. However, we will do our best to recover as much as we can, but cannot guarantee anything. There will be no refund, for any reason, for a “no-show” on the day of the tour. A “Refund Protection Plan” is available at our office at a minimal cost. This insures you a full refund in case of a death or illness in the immediate family up to 24 hours before the tour departs. (It does require a doctor’s written note or copy of death notice.) On longer tours, we have a special insurance plan available if you are interested, and it will be sent to you with your confirmation. We encourage you to take advantage of these protection plans. The Refund Protection Plan does not apply to Day Trips, nor are there any refunds for Day Trips, with a few exceptions.
Gad-About Tours Inc. reserves the right to cancel any tour that has not reached a minimum number of reservations. We reserve the right to change tour prices and itinerary. Tours are prepared up to a year in advance and may be impacted by circumstances that arise which are beyond our control. We reserve the right to cancel or refuse service to anyone, in our sole discretion. We always avoid changes and cancellations if at all possible, as we realize the inconvenience to you, our valued customer.
All of our tours are by late-model, deluxe wide-body motorcoach. They are equipped with air-conditioning, reclining seats, public address system, VCR, and emergency restrooms. Our intent is for all overnight tours to be professionally escorted for your convenience. Upon occasion, in order to avoid canceling a trip with a low passenger count, our driver may serve both positions of driver and escort, and all are professionally trained to do so. Also, on air trips with low passenger counts, we may not be able to provide an escort from our company. However, we will provide airport transportation*, plus a guide from our connecting company will meet you upon arrival at your destination and be with you throughout the entire tour. (*If only a few are going on a given air tour, we will pay your airport parking fee in lieu of using the coach.)
Your lodging is included on all overnight tours. All hotels are AAA rated. We never use second-rate hotels, restaurants, or activities on any tour, to the best of our ability to make that determination. Payment of telephone calls, room service, and other incidentals at places of lodging are the responsibility of the customer.
One suitcase per person is included in the price of your tour. You are also permitted a carry-on, which is your responsibility. Additional luggage may be transported at the cost of $5.00 per bag, per day. It is wise to travel light. Luggage tags are provided and required for hotel identification, and are sent with the final letter with the phone numbers of your hotels.
TAXES AND GRATUITIES:
All taxes and gratuities for included meals and activities are included, unless otherwise mentioned by the Escort. Driver and Escort gratuities are not included in the price of the tour, and are optional. However, the suggested gratuity as posted by the American Bus Assoc. for a job well done is $2.00-$2.50 per person/per day for the tour escort, and $2.00-$2.50 per person/per day for the driver. We request that you express this on an individual basis, and let the quality of service received be your guide.
On all overnight tours, we use a daily seat rotation. The first day of a trip, we allow you to choose your seat when you get on, and rotate from there. We feel this is fair to all involved. If the coach is not full, a less formal rotation may be used at escort’s discretion.
We make regular stops for restrooms and for the convenience of smokers; however, we have a NO SMOKING policy aboard all coaches. This policy also applies to e-cigarettes.
