I purchased both a two day Yorkshire Pass and a fifteen day Great British Heritage Pass. Most of the attractions outside of York that I wanted to visit were covered by both passes.
I visited a number of key attractions in York (Jorvik Viking Centre, York Minster, York Castle Museum, Cliffords Tower, Barley Hall) in one day and only needed a one day Yorkshire pass.
However, if someone wishes to see York in more depth, a two day Yorkshire Pass might be advisable.
Very comprehensive. Perfect for the first-timer.
Just the job the best way to see York. Brilliant.
Great weekend away, Yorkshire Pass made things cheaper and no need to worry about extra spending money to cover the places of interest.
Good way to see an overview of a city and decide what and what not you want to see. Bus starting point not easy to find. Otherwise excellent.
We used the pass on a weekend visit to York. It was definitely worthwhile but we very disappointed that, despite the boat trip being flagged up as an important item in the publicity, it could only be used on only 1 of the 50 sailings a day - and that was at a very inconvenient time! 7.30pm. None of the guided walks were included either. On our return journey we used our pass to visit the Deep in Hull which was a bonus.
All of these passes are great. It saves you money. We had a one day pass and managed to see just about everything we wanted to. Wish we had been in York one more day.
A later finishing time would be better, for example around 18:00 arrival at the tourist office.
We love the hop on, hop off bus tour to familiarize ourselves with the main attractions and the lay out of a new city.

Doing what: York City Hop-on Hop-off Tour
York is small enough that a bus is not necessary.
Our trip was first class. The York Pass is excellent value and we even used it in Whitby when we had a day at the coast.
We had a fab' 3 days in York and would definately recommend the 'York Pass' tickets. We visited all that we planned and more, without once having to pay for hidden extras, and we saved ourselves quite a few pounds. Thanks.
very good value for money
The York Pass was certainly value for money. We managed to visit quite a few of the places on the list but could of done with another day or two! We had a lovely few days in York and I'd certainly recommend it.
