Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the New York Super Saver: Empire State Building, Metropolitan Museum of Art and Statue of Liberty Cruise. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
This is self guided tour that's too challenging for first time in new york.must be early to see state empire building to see other two. We missed out on museum as a result.
My 17 year old daughter and I had a great visit to NY. We did a lot of walking this day to get to the various locations. I might suggest you not call this a tour, as it is just a savings in admissions.
Empire State Building was great but was disappointed there was only 1 sailing on cruise on Sunday and when we handed paperwork in to get ticket we were not giving any time sheet for cruises
This was the cheapest way to buy tickets for these three events. I took three teenagers (full price) and myself and it was a choice trio of site seeing. Some beautiful sites!! Be forewarned about how this works: 1. the empire state building tickets get you past one line into a "VIP" line to pick up the vouchers (and you have to go to this place first for all the vouchers). But just know that there are 4 or 5 lines after that first one, all very long. So this is a 2.5 hour affair just getting up to the top. There is no food available up there nor anywhere else and the gift shop is pretty silly I thought besides ridiculously expensive. It's really a gorgeous view anytime day or night and no other option but to wait in line so well worth it. If you have extra $$ I would spend it on a photo with the guy in the King Kong suit! 2. Metropolitan Museum. Definitely one of my favorite places to go in NYC, so much to see always. No advantage to the VIP tickets tho: still must bring vouchers to an exchange desk for tickets. 3. Statue of Liberty Cruise. This does not go to Liberty Island and Ellis Island but has best views of statue: loved that. I wish there were more options to choose from at this price. (Bronx Zoo, or Central Park Zoo, go to Liberty and Ellis Island). But over all, for three major activities, not a bad thing. Especially because it helped me to plan ahead, so I didn't have to think~
I was disapointed to find out there is no admission charge for the Meto. Museum of Art. but this package was sold like there was and your fee covered that charge. .
I loved my trip but do not recommend Viator because I couldn't find my way around and nobody helped me. Worse, they got hold of my e-mail at the Empire State building and I simply couldn't find my way around NY in order to visit both the Statue and Metropolitan. I reckoned there'd be people in the Empire State Building to help me get to the other places, but there was no one. As a result I ended up paying to visit 3 places but actually visiting only one. I wonder what would've happened to me if I were a tourist who spoke very little English as most people I met on my trip. I came back to my country the next day really frustrated for no one could tell me how I could get to the place where the Statue of Liberty Cruise started.
Getting tickets from Empire State building itself took nearly 3 hrs. As we stood 3hrs to get tickets, we continued to complete Empire State building and that took another 2hrs. We did not find time to visit other place. We came to know that no tickets required for my child, but viator charged for ticket for my child. The Hop-on-Hop off Tour bus is totally inconvenient and guides in the bus are very eagar to take tips but not having any interest to guide people.
