Users reviews

  • Emilie Ponce: “We bought the New York City Pass. It includes the main monuments to see for our 10 days on site. For a longer trip, you have to take the New York Pass 12 days which is more expensive but includes many more visits.
  • Alain Vie: “We liked the New York City Pass and we will use it next time. »
  • Olivier Maillard: “The New York City Pass is practical and covers the mythical places to visit well, but it doesn’t really save time for queues. Disappointing at this level. »
  • Lucie Loulou: “The New York City Pass was everything we wanted to see, but indeed, for queues, it is not a priority everywhere. But well, I was satisfied anyway! »
