I chose an Option for two attractions, paid $64 - I chose a cruise around Manhattan (which didn't go around Manhattan due to high water & bridges - no ones fault) - got to the ticket counter with my voucher - required to pay $10 extra. For the second attraction I chose the 911 Memorial - Even with the voucher I had to wait 2.5 hours in line to get a ticket - then waited for another 1.5 hours to go into the museum. I chose a guided tour for an additional $20. I don't really think I saved any money or time using the Explorer Pass. I think this would work better buying the $132 pass offering options for more attractions which I didn't have time for - good for 30 days. I paid like $45 on my own to go to the top of the Empire State Building which was one of the options.

It was just beautiful. Tour guide, the company everything was super organized. When we were at meeting location our driver was ready for us. He was so professional and really friendly. When other carriages were passing by we realized that their drivers were not like our driver. They were just driving the horse. But our driver was talking to us explaining everything about park answering our questions about city, park... I just felt like super special. Thank you so much for that awesome tour.

With the New York Explorer pass, we selected the 7 most important sights. Then I started planning the days. I got to know the subway and bus transportation in New York and planned where and how to go. Now I’m nearing the end and enjoying it more and more. I’ve been to the U.S. several times, but I’ve avoided big cities by far so far. However, I was in almost every National Park. I think we will enjoy that too.

We had a similar pass for San Francisco last summer. It's so nice to have options and to be able to skip lines. The hint to go to the Rose Center entrance of the American Museum of Natural History was outstanding! Long lines due to the holidays and a Kwanza celebration but walked right in the side entrance.

Fantastic value for money pass that allows you visit more attractions than you could ever possibly fit in! 100% recommend to anyone visiting New York, especially if it’s your first time.
