Having done this before in NYC it is worth the trip. There are plenty of agents out on the street trying to sell the same deal but the voucher really does help. The only downside being that you have to hunt down the office to transfer the voucher into tickets but this was straight forward and on we went. Doing an open top bus in December is not faint hearted and only a few of the busses are covered from the rain so it is luck of the draw if the weather is OK. The guide on the uptown tour was very charismatic and even stopped off at the cathedral to have a look round which was not part of the norm (or so he said). The downtown tour guide was less charismatic but it did not help with it being raining. The hop on hop off facility was helpful though as it does save on taxi and subway fares around town. Highly recommended!
I have been to New York 3 times prior to this visit and this time I wanted to do something that I'd never done before so thought I'd give the Hop on Hop Off bus tour a try. I am so glad I did as it was absolutely brilliant and a fantastic way to see the city! The guides were so informative and as such I learnt a lot about the city. The stops were in great places for the nearby attractions. I would recommend the 2 day "All Loops" bus tour to anyone who visits New York and I would definitely do it again the next time I'm in town.
