Bodine Unlimited Tours offers New York City shopping bus tours on certain Saturdays throughout the year.

Passengers may shop, sight-see or catch an afternoon movie before meeting up at 9 p.m. to return to Rochester.

Themed shopping bus tours may offer a firmer itinerary with special activities. Passengers on the annual Thrifting Atlanta Bus Tour enjoy light refreshments, raffles and giveaways while they travel to local thrift shops with discounts and sales available exclusively to the tour group. The American Girl shopping bus tour offers mothers and daughters a chance to shop together, including lunch and tea at the American Girl Place headquarters in New York City.

Overnight shopping tours combine shopping destinations with scenic drives and other attractions. A two-day Niagara Falls and outlet-shopping bus tour allows passengers to explore Watkins Glen State Park before touring the American side of Niagara Falls. At night, passengers may tour the Canadian side of the falls or stay in an American hotel for the evening. The second day begins with a Niagara Falls boat tour and ends with outlet shopping in Pennsylvania.
