Comments about Smart Destinations CitySights Uptown Treasures & Harlem Hop-On Hop-Off Tour:

Loved exploring Uptown. Great to get away from the hustle and bustle of Downtown. We wanted an overview and that's what we got. Definitely made us want to explore it further the next time we're in New York. Bloomingdales here I come!
