  • Not recognized at some attractions, Especially at Empire state building. Please note that you need to visit City Sightseeing Counter inside Empire state building to get valid fast lane ticket recognized by Entrance staff. We were sent back from Top floor to main entrance again as the ticket / Voucher is not recognized.
    Statue of liberty tour also did not give fast lane access.
    One world observatory recognized this pass.
    Grayline bus tours are good.
    Over all this pass is good if you have ample time and clear plan of what you want to see.

  • A great tour with great access to anything we wanted to experience. Excellent value. We would definitely purchase again.

  • This was totally disappointing. We purchased a day pass to NYC, we could not get into ANYTHING we were supposed to. Let alone the fastpass that we purchased for some of the locations such as the empire state building. I am not sure if it was the fault of the person that activated our voucher or that the voucher was just fake. The only thing we could do was ride the bus and I suspect that is because I purchased the VIP I didn't want to wait in the lines that could be very long at an additional cost.

  • We used the New York Pass to get into the sights we wanted to see while in New York. Make sure you have your pass validated at the designated locations so to save time when fronting up to locations that need the validation prior to entry otherwise you may not get into locations and have to return to validation centres using up valuable time. Great pass with more entries than other passes available. Use on ferry trips around Manhattan Island as well as Statue of Liberty cruise. Highly recommend this pass.

  • I have the 1 Day Pass - Have to say, 1 day is not enough to visit all the wonderful places offered by the Sightseeing Pass. However, I was able to take Liberty Cruise to see the Statue of Liberty, One World Observatory, and ride on Citysighteseeing Hop on Hop off bus. The value of the three attractions already exceed the cost of the One Day pass. Have I have more stamina, I would have try to visit more places and they would all be FREE, hence the comment of 1 day Pass is not enough. Try buying 2 or 3 days pass instead, and enjoy more of NYC.

  • This tour is a great way to see some of the biggest attractions in New York City. One of the best things about the sightseeing day pass is you are your own tour. Everything is left in your hands as the traveler and you don’t have to be held back by people or other moving parts. You can go at your own pace which is very important to me because New York City moves fast. You can also curate your day to fit your own interests. There are many museums, walking tours, food tours, bike rentals, times square attractions and observation decks on some of the coolest buildings in the city. There are SO many things on this pass that you can get access to and if you easily using your phone. If you plan your day right, you can really fit a lot in. We didn’t plan our day too well and there were a couple of logistical bumps. We planned to stop at the gray line first thing in the morning so that we could ride around central park to the east side and visit the Guggenheim museum. The line at the bus station was painstakingly long and then three busses had to pass us by because they were full. By the time we got up top, ready to see the sights, we found out there was a parade so it wouldn’t be stopping at all on the east side. We had to get off and use the subway to get to the museum and we lost a lot of morning time! I would suggest picking up your tickets for the bus (if you want to ride the bus) at one of the other shops or attractions since it will be less busy then the actual bus office. Once we got finished with the Guggenheim we headed back down to midtown for some lunch in times square which was a great deal with the pass. We jumped back on the bus and headed down town to see spectacular city views from the top of both the empire state building and one world trade center. Riding the bus later in the day ended up being a blast. We had less stress about timing so we just sat back and enjoyed the ride. Every location we went to (minus the bus office) had no problems scanning our code and we were able to move quickly through the attractions. Overall, it was a great way to see the many highlights of New York City!

  • This pass is a great way to see New York City's iconic spots, without worrying about extra payment, and cost of transportation from one attraction to another. Pay once, and enjoy the trip. I started my day taking the Liberty Cruise, getting to see Statue of Liberty upclose. Then take the Hop on Hop off to One World Observatory. This is the New World Trade Center. This pass has exclusive pass to the access. Then spend the rest of the afternoon seeing NYC through the comfort of Hop on Hop off Double Deck bus. My only complaint is that there's no Chinese language available on the bus.

  • As a New Yorker, I thought it would be fun to do a day of sightseeing in my own city. I really enjoyed the flexibility of the pass. I took the hop on hop off bus on the downtown and uptown loops. Both were interesting and pointed out a few facts I hadn’t known before. Just be aware that you are on top of the bus, so you want to go on the bus in weather that is comfortable for you. There were opportunities to get off the bus frequently although I stayed on a while. To start the bus tour, I had to redeem the Viator pass at one of a list of locations. I chose the Ripley’s Museum, which was quiet early on a Sunday morning and I got the pass quickly. I hadn’t planned to see Ripley’s, but since I was already there, I showed my day pass and walked right in. I enjoyed it more than I expected. It was part side show and part museum of interesting facts and objects. There was a Cheetos museum in the middle, and the last room had baseball memorabilia that a fan would enjoy. I was alone, but could see families enjoying it. I also planned to use the pass for the One World Observatory. I was able to skip the longer line where people had to pay, and went right to a speedy line where I was given a free ticket. That ticket alone is worth about a third of the value of the pass, so it really made it a good value. Also, skipping the long ticket line was great. My daily ticket also included a choice of visiting the American Museum of Natural History, Ellis Island or the Met. I decided to go for the Natural History Museum, but living in NYC, I know all are good choices. Even with all I visited, there were many other items that looking interesting. Overall, the pass is a good value if you want to see multiple attractions in a day, especially some of the ones with higher ticket prices.

  • We got the 1 day Sightseeing Pass, and after using it I agree that its a huge value for the money. Theres a ton of of attractions that you can get into with the pass, so many that we were overwhelmed initially and couldn’t decide what to do. I strongly suggest that you sit down with a map and make an itinerary before you start the day. We wasted some time deciding what to do next and traveling to and from each attraction - make sure that you organize your itinerary by whats close in distance, and what time activities start. In the morning, we waited for 1 hour at the Sightseeing office on 8th Avenue to get our tour bus passes. Our agent at the counter was very surly and was not helpful in answering our questions. I would recommend skipping the Sightseeing Hop-on, Hop-off bus tour all together. Each bus stop had long lines and we weren’t able to board some of the buses because they were full. We ended up taking the subway to the attractions. We managed to do 4 activities and attractions in our 1 day. The highlight of the day was the visit to the World Trade Center Observatory. Go at sunset and you’re guaranteed an amazing view. All in all it was so much fun and such a great way to see New York. I would definitely recommend the Sightseeing Pass to tourists - just avoid the bus tour and make a plan first!

  • The SightSeeing pass made my experience touring through New York City a convenient and exciting one. As a New Yorker myself, I am used to the fast pace city. It was a pleasant and relaxing experience to have the SightSeeing pass guide me in an organized and efficient fashion, in which my family and I were able to relax and enjoy the journey through New York City! Visiting the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building were my personal favorites. I already recommended the pass to my neighbors!
