Unforgettable memories made in NYC thanks to the City Pass! A cool feature is the same day visit to the Empire State Building! We did the NH museum, empire, top of the rock, Liberty cruise and 911 museum. Would recommend all activities! Very easy to book and could even change some activities to suit the weather.

Overall I loved the price and options available… but when is your first time using can be a bit of challenging to have to use a third party to make the bookings etc … I had to pay for 2 attractions that wasn’t opening by the pass … but overall was worth I would recommend it yes !!

Didn’t realise theatre booking would require proof of ID as well as the booking in the app.

Been to the Empire State Building so far and the pass was very easy to use!

Very good value for money with unmissable activities
