The whole process of getting the paperwork straight for the 72 tour was easy! The tours were convenient to catch and provided a great orientation for a visitor. The night lights tour was very special and the uptown downtown trips were helpful in getting around in a reasonable time and allowed us to see what we want to see on our stay. The Radio City 3D movie at the Christmas show was made extra special due to the uptown downtown tours we completed before attending the show. Good deal for visitors to consider!

My husband and I have used this service for a few years and can't complain about anything ,
the drivers are wonderful and very helpful, especially the guy who drives the number 618 and took us to the airport on Friday @2.30 pm from radio city apts well done .
Simply brilliant. This pass is so much better value than the one that is widely advertised that only lets you in to 9 attractions. There are 80 on list. I couldn't believe the great value. In three days I managed to do all the major things like the Empire State Building, Top of the Rock, Radio City, 9/11 memorial, MoMA, Guggenheim, The Met, Intrepid, and the River Taxi. The fact that you get 4 river trips included is brilliant. All the venues knew about the pass it was really simple and in many places you skipped the lines. I went to other places that I didn't even know about had it not been for the pass (Discovery). Simply put this is great value if you want to do the main tourist attractions in New York. Just make sure you get this one - rather than the other pass.

Definte must do, the day you pick up the pass, tear out off the activies that you want to do, book them if you need to, some of the activites need to be pre booked, a definite must do is Radio City, 911, Rockafellar tour, I wish that they sent out the book to you before you arrived so you can pre book and arranged what activies you want to do, also NBC tour was great, theatre walking tour amazing.

A good way to see various attractions without having to line up. One of the tours I did was a tour of Radio City Music Hall - I found this tour to be very interesting.

Highly recommended, especially on a clear day. The sales staff both at the reception and in the gift shops were incredibly friendly and informative. The views were incredible and the other options such as having your photo taken and videos of the rockettes at radio city were a bonus. Just hold onto to your hat if its a windy day!!
Doing what: Top of the Rock Observation Deck, New York
This was a fantastic option. We were traveling with a party of eight, four of whom were children under the age of eight. We were on a time constraint because we had tickets for Radio City Music Hall. Given the lines that we bypassed, we would never have made it. One suggestion - after we bypassed the major lines and got our tickets on the second floor, there was no clear direction that we could go to the head of the line via another walkway. We stood on line for about 20 minutes before we saw other people walking by and asked. At that point, the employees were fantastic - express pass, come this way - again bypassing everyone. We did at several intervals have to look for someone to point us in the right direction and did not know that express pass was also for going down until someone glanced at our tickets. If you could print directions regarding these issues, it would have been a perfect trip. Thank you!
It was great getting to the Empire State Building and the Air and Space Museum before the crowds. When I ordered the tour, I was told it concluded about 12:30 but it actually ended for us about 2 o'clock and we had another tour at 2:45 in Manhattan, so it rushed us to get something to eat and get over to the next tour. Our guide was informative but had his "routine" of old jokes--felt like it was a vaudeville review. That probably added 30 - 40 minutes to the tour and cost us the chance to get the boat to see the Statue of Liberty since our next tour was at Radio City Music Hall, a good 20+ minute cab ride one way.
