  • New York Pass: Access to 100+ Attractions & Tours

    1. New York Pass: Access to 100+ Attractions & Tours

    Use The New York Pass on your phone to allow you cash-free entry to over 100 New York tourist attractions. It’s a bit like an “all you can eat” buffet; once you’ve bought your New York Pass, you don’t have to pay to get into any of the attractions covered by the pass, and the more sights you see, the more money you save.

    The New York Pass records when and where you first use it, as well as how long it will remain valid. This means your pass is activated the moment that you first use it at any attraction or service. Your New York Pass is then valid for the number of days that you've purchased. 

    The full list of attractions:

    POPULAR EXPERIENCES

    • Empire State Building

    • Big Bus Tours: 1-day Classic Tour

    • Top of the Rock Observation Deck

    • 9/11 Memorial & Museum

    • Edge (Hudson Yards)

    • One World Observatory

    I didn’t have any problems with the pass. It was show/reserve and go experience, and it allowed us to do most of the attractions, including others we had planned. I had a good trip with it.

    With the New York Explorer pass, we selected the 7 most important sights. Then I started planning the days. I got to know the subway and bus transportation in New York and planned where and how to go. Now I’m nearing the end and enjoying it more and more. I’ve been to the U.S. several times, but I’ve avoided big cities by far so far. However, I was in almost every National Park. I think we will enjoy that too.

    Other than a lot of Covid impacts to the individual attractions, this pass is a good value. It IS a bit confusing up front and some of the timed attractions did not allow you to book the times in advance. But overall, we had no issues... and the attractions were all familiar with the pass and accepted it without much issue. We were very satisfied with our choice of this as opposed to purchasing individual tickets.

    The proprietress is getting a bit old but she still gets around quite well and is very accommodating. She actually lives in an annex house to the house she rents out and we were the only guests these two days so we had the whole house to ourselves. We probably will not see her except when she cooks breakfast in the mornings. She even showed us all the rooms and gave us our choice. My wife chose the prettiest room. And the whole house is gorgeous with antiques and snacks for us if we want eat some. It is a cozy, beautiful home in a quiet neighborhood.

  • Chelsea Market, Meatpacking, High Line Food & History Tour

    7. Chelsea Market, Meatpacking, High Line Food & History Tour

    Chelsea Market and the High Line are two of NYC's best attractions. This food and history tour features incredible insights and stories as well as some delicious food and fantastic NYC views. Plus the tour guides are truly entertaining and it's enough food for lunch. Did you know that although the area was originally residential, markets have existed in the district since the 1840s. People moved into tenements in the Meatpacking district in the 1820s to escape epidemics in what was then the main part of New York. In 1900, 250 slaughterhouses and packing plants filled the district; by the 1930s, those houses produced the nation’s third-largest volume of dressed meats. Five meatpacking companies still operate in the district. Boutiques and bars are more common than rump roasts these days, and the neighborhood continues to evolve almost daily. The food included at the Market features a Ja...

    Megan was a wonderful tour guide! We loved the food stops in the market. All of them were unique and tasty! The walk on the High Line was great.....no crowds as it was a Friday in December.

    A lot of places are not open or have limited capacity so you need to make a reservation ahead of time. Disappointed that the hop on hop off busses were not available and the only pick up spot for the Big Bus was Times Square so we missed out using the bus to get around. Otherwise a good deal and you get to see a lot of NY!
