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!
This pass is ok. We would pick ik up at the NBC Expierence Store, but their was it not more available, so they send us to an other pick-up place. Maby it is necessarry that you adjust your internet site.
Very useful card, but the booklet that accompanies it needs updating, some of the attractions no longer accepted the pass. Also, if you wanted to use it on the Statue of Liberty, the office to get the ticket using the pass is out of the way and that is not made too clear.
This card provides an easy way to see several top attractions. Most are easily accessible and the huge variety caters for all interests.
This was great value, we got the 5 attractions card but in the time we had only used 4.
Ok. But still have to go to ticket booth.
And submit for actual ticket
I think it's a very good idea and the queue pass was very practical and saved us time.
Great pass! you choose where you want to go and the best part is; once activated you have up to 30 days before the card expire so no need to rush!
The pass was great apart from having to get tickets as well for each attraction. It would be good if the pass could just be swiped for entry especially as it was not always clear where to get the actual tickets and we ended up queing for ages at Statue of Liberty tickets to be told that we were in the wrong place.....the tickets were from a couple of girls sitting on a bench looking like tourists themselves!!
The Natural History Museum was good, but the ticket does not include all areas. Enjoyed the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island as able to spend as much time at each area as we wanted, the trip out on the ferry was lovely too. We went to top of Rockerfeller centre at 11pm.......wow what views, definitely my favourite seing all NY lit up. My kids said it was the best holiday ever!!!
Had a great time. Loved having our passes in advanced. Saved us a lot of time. Would book again through Viator.
I am Happy and satisfied with this Trip, myself , wife and my daughter enjoyed.
Good but not as good as other cities. You need to check cost of tours as you can make poor choices with no real saving
Made good use of this card. Useful as there was no problem getting into recommended sites and avoiding queues (except at Empire State Building) was a bonus. Found some discrepancy between the actual values for the events and those advised by Viator. For instance for the bike roll brooklyn event I was given a receipt for US$53 but Viator claims the cost for this as US$59. Still if all events are attended I am sure there are savings to be had. Also it made excellent sense not to to be carrying extra money around.
