I've ridden the red buses... it was fine. They are useful for a one day experience... just head to Times square and hop on one. :)

The Big Bus gets good reviews, but like most New Yorkers I have never actually used the tour buses so I don't have first-hand experience. The quality of the experience will depend largely on the driver/guide. So if your guide isn't very good, you can just hop off the bus and wait for the next one and hope they are better.

Honestly i think every new yorker hates these buses. If you have kids i can see them being useful. If you dont, NYC is divided up into three parts... Uptown, Midtown and Downtown. Take a day and explore them using the subway and walking. Uptown you have central park, museums. Midtown the touristy entire of NYC and Downtown itself is divided up into east and west village, financial district , union square ... NYC is very much a city made for walking
