I chose an Option for two attractions, paid $64 - I chose a cruise around Manhattan (which didn't go around Manhattan due to high water & bridges - no ones fault) - got to the ticket counter with my voucher - required to pay $10 extra. For the second attraction I chose the 911 Memorial - Even with the voucher I had to wait 2.5 hours in line to get a ticket - then waited for another 1.5 hours to go into the museum. I chose a guided tour for an additional $20. I don't really think I saved any money or time using the Explorer Pass. I think this would work better buying the $132 pass offering options for more attractions which I didn't have time for - good for 30 days. I paid like $45 on my own to go to the top of the Empire State Building which was one of the options.

We had a similar pass for San Francisco last summer. It's so nice to have options and to be able to skip lines. The hint to go to the Rose Center entrance of the American Museum of Natural History was outstanding! Long lines due to the holidays and a Kwanza celebration but walked right in the side entrance.

Wonderful experience. It had been so long since I was last there, I forgot how beautiful the Garden can be. Scenic and tranquil...yes, even with NYC crowds! Go get your steps in and enjoy a beautiful walk in the Bronx!

Fantastic value for money pass that allows you visit more attractions than you could ever possibly fit in! 100% recommend to anyone visiting New York, especially if it’s your first time.

Everything was wonderful and special. The location: proximity to the train station, the convenience of planning and, most of all, the beauty and quietude of the whole garden.
