We were a group of 4 with ages between 27 and 49 staying for 7 days and so opted for a 5 trip Explorer Pass. We had an idea before arriving in NY which trips we were interested in. We found no problem in picking up the Explorer Pass or booking any of the individual trips; in fact we upgraded the pass for certain tours once we were there. It was definitely worth the money, and the fact that you have to pick the pass up from a different place to where you need to book the individual trips is just another walk, and you should not visit NY if you have an aversion to walking. It was brilliant!
We had a fab time. The explorer pass was brill, and we saved a bit of money buying the pass as opposed to paying for entrance fees individually. The staff at the desk where we had to get tickets were always very helpful.
Perfect for one week in NYC. Only thing we couldn't do was Ellis Island - the line was way too long!
We had a great time. Choose Ripley's TS, Empire State Building and Top of the Rock. These 3 tours along with the Carriage ride in Central Park filled our day from about 8am to 2am. There are many great choices on the Explorer Pass to suit everyone. It is hard to choose just three. Love that we could buy other pass sizes had our time in NYC allowed for such a purchase. Good value and great way to explore the Big Apple. Nice extra value items added with the pass as well.
Great value and flexibility. The "hop on, hop off" bus was excellent.
We only chose a 3 attraction pass and found it a great saving. The list of attractions was quite large and offered a great deal of choice. However we were a bit disappointed with the staff's knowledge of the pass at the New York office and had to return a number of times to get the answers to the queries we had regarding our selections.
A great pass that allows you to experience all the attractions in NYC. I would highly recommend the bike tour around Central Park
A great thing to get but make sure to make the correct decision on what to use it on.
We had the five attraction pass and we felt it was value for money. But once again, the process to convert our pre paid printed voucher was a nuisance as we had to find our way to the office which was incorrectly written on the voucher. Instructions said 3rd floor and in actual fact it is ground floor.
Viator need to sort this out as the street number is incorrect. It is the ground floor of the visitor centre next to the address given.
A very good way to see the sights economically. However, the complexity of process to see Statue of Liberty discouraged us from selecting it as an Explorer Pass choice. We booked it independently.
The explorer pass was great , the only thing was to find out how to use it .
It was a good value with lots of great options. I didn't like having to run to some of the places to get vouchers and when we lost a pass, nobody could help us replace it!
This tour was great fun and a great marketing tour for the city. I took a friend out for dinner at Buddakan after it was featured on the tour! It was good to cover the movies as well as the series. I liked that we were reminded of the scenes with the television in the bus too!
