Man! We had such a good time my mom and I! It was a hot beautiful day!

Originally I had a previous day that I missed because of an online error of the date. The customer support (Sarah) helped me out big time and rescheduled us for another date although it was originally not possible due to the terms of service; she was very understanding and didn't make my 70 bucks go down the drain. The day was hot, sunny, blue skies...perfect! The boat was air conditioned, clean, had 2 concession stands that served some nice goodies, pizza, hotdogs, cookies, soft drinks (alcohol) you will be comfortable! The boat ride had a really nice and cool narrator who was very informative of the landmarks and also very witty! Explained safety, life jackets, etc. The best place and "cool" shade with the best view and experience was the lower deck! you could taste the salt water in the breeze and feel the water splash on you too. If you want a tan, sunburn, or heatstroke..stay off the top deck lol! I would go on this boat ride again!

Worth it if you're committed to doing a lot of things!

We found the pass to be worth it when we added up the costs of what we did and what it would have cost to do them by paying separately. The pdf information the pass provided on the 100 included attractions was most helpful and maybe we could have gotten that from other sources but it worked out well for us to plan our itinerary from the list of things the pass would pay for. Not all of our activities that we did in NY were covered, but that still was OK. You need to calculate how much you think you're going to do on your trip to determine if it's good for you. We did not feel like we were running all over to do things to make it worth it, but we were busy most days all day long.

Fantastic value , great way to see all the sights

We bought the pass and I was a bit worried that we wouldn’t get our monies worth but it exceeded expectations. We saw so many sights included was hop on hop off bus and water taxi. Easy to use and good value for money.

It was a great cruise for my wife and I. Do not sit towards the front

It was a great cruise for my wife and I. Do not sit towards the front. Outside unless you want people to stand in front of you and block your view. I recommend sitting 5 to 6 rows back.

Excellent trip. Captain was very informative.

Wonderful experience. A must do! Only issue was even though you download the mobile ticket, you still have to stand in line to get a paper ticket.
