I bought this pass because I could choose a number of attractions rather than number of days. The pass activates when you go to the first attraction and then lasts up to 60 days. I did not use the pass for the Statue of Liberty because you don’t get to visit the pedestal or crown using the pass, so you can just visit the outside of the statue and the museum plus Ellis Island. On some attractions you can’t book a specific entry time eg at the 9/11 memorial museum or Top of the Rock - but as it was we did not have any large queue at either of these venues. Some of the attractions are not available after October eg some of the walking tours. I spent quite a bit of time viewing details of the attractions and tours including the locations so I could plan my days and work how many attractions I needed over 4 days. I used the pass for Empire State, Museum of Modern Art, Highline Walking Tour, Greenwich Village Walking Tour - all of which I booked specific times for- The following you just have to turn up - Rockefeller Centre Top of the Rock, 9/11 Museum, Bike Hire . The pass worked well for us and definitely saved money plus we did the walking tours which we would probably not done otherwise. I recommend doing them early in your stay as you learn a lot and get a lot of recommendations which obviously you can’t follow up on if you are already at the end of your trip.

I would love to give it 5 stars. The value was great but getting our passes to link took us three days and six emails. We bought the Dublin City Pass. The only way to book the Guinness tour was through their link. Ours did not work, time after time. Kind as they were, their customer service is all India based and it’s hard to get the issues fixed. Huge disappointment and not worth the money because so far we’ve been unable to book the one tour we care about most.
