New York City
, Jun 2019
I would NOT recommend using NY City Explorer pass here. We could never find a bus. When we did, just drove right past us. Tickets for 911 Memorial and Empire State Building did not have the ability to “jump the line” we waited in long lines and had to exchange our printed tickets at their ticket Windows. This defeats the purpose of buying online. I never found a place that had the bus routes or coupon books. I called and they were to email info, never received anything. Found some information by walking around and asking peop,e. Waited at the stop no busses. I have used Trip Advisor in Chicago, Boston and Washington DC with great success. Will probably not use again.

Thank you for reviewing the NYC Explorer Pass. We appreciate all of the feedback. We do have a listing on our website of the attractions and their locations. Unfortunately, during peak season in New York City, attractions can get busy and wait times may be longer than normal. We are so sorry for any inconvenience.

A good trip in all, but there were time restrictions on the day, that we were not aware of until we were on the hop-on-hop-off bus. The bus basically shuts down at 6 p.m. and a night tour commences about an hour later (which was not included in our 24 hour (?) bus pass). We did have a good time in the Empire State building and got a chance to do some shopping. It was a little inconvenient having to find and transfer to a different bus to go to Upper Manhattan. Overall, not a bad deal.
Useful good value pass
, Jun 2019
We were in NY for 5 nights and bought a 3 visit pass which was about right-and did the bus tour, 9/11 Museum and Empire State as bought a separate guided trip for Statue of Liberty to get into the pedestal. We were lucky with the timing of our trip in May as the bus company were offering 2 days for the price of one so had extra value for our city pass which was good value anyway.
Provides structure to your visit

Helps with budgeting, pass can be bought well in advance of trip. Use for higher priced attractions to gain best value from pass. Bought 5 attraction pass for 7 day visit and struggled to use all of it. Lots to do for free in New York so go for 3 attraction pass and walk. You see lots more.

We have purchase from Viator a 7 attraction coupon when visiting the New York. Prior to the purchase we have experienced an excellent support to our queries from the providers of the Coupon. Upon our stay to New York we have not face any problem with the Coupon. We are very happy with our choice. Highly recommended for purchase when Visiting New York!!
Worth a look

This pass is good value if you intend to do multiple attractions, you just need to calculate before you arrive the things you will see, and plan before you arrive. Not sure the big bus is the best for New York, but was great in other cities.

Very good value for money. We saved more than 50% of the price of basic activities. We had no problems with the pass. It was really useful to see the main attractions of the city. I recommend
Worth it!

We came to NYC for the first time in and booked the 7 option pass. We were here for 6 days and originally were going to buy the 10 option but glad we didn’t as it would have been rushed to use all 10. Lines were perfect for us (we were lucky) and only recommendation would be showing up at least an hour and fifteen minutes early for the Central Park bike tour. There is a lot of places to hang out or eat near while you wait for the tour. It is definitely worth the money and is recommended you visit each site to see which attractions or tours you can book in advance!

I was a little hesitant about getting this at first but after reading the reviews I went for it and I'm so glad I did, it made visiting many attractions so much easier, I purchased the 5 attractions but now I wish I had done 7 or 10, I used it for the Metropolitan Museum, Intrepid Museum, Top of the Rock, Empire State building Observatory, and the Circle Line. I will definitely purchase this again when visiting New York.
