The New York Pass was easy to purchase. We were visiting NYC for the first time and planned to visit as many sights as possible. As a result the number of days pass worked best for us, we estimated around a 30% saving versus paying each attraction directly

The NY Pass is highly recommended!!! If you plan well, you can see a lot and you have enough time! We wrote down the admission prices...we didn't regret it, from the 4th day we were free (we had the 7-day pass) Thank you!!!!

You definitely get your monies worth. A great deal , you do need to plan your day to maximize events to see and logistics. You definitely want to use the hop on hope off bus to get around.

Very easy to redeem and a great way to book multiple activities at once. Time slots can easily be reserved with the providers.

absolutely amazing well worth getting the new york tickets pass
