Hop-On Hop-Off Tour Included
Hop-On Hop-Off buses are ideal for those who want to relax while seeing a lot of the city. I advise people to take a full tour of the city before they start visiting attractions. It’s the perfect way to get to know the city. When you buy a New York Pass, it also includes a 1-day Hop-On Hop-Off ticket for Big Bus. With this ticket you can tour the Uptown, Midtown and Downtown loops.
Are you visiting New York between now and the 15th of April? Then you can use the Hop-on Hop-off Bus for the entire duration of our pass, at no additional cost!
How do I get a New York Pass?
You can order the New York Pass with a discount here. You can choose one of two options: either have it delivered to your home (shipping takes 4 business days, costs $25) or pick it up in New York at no extra cost. For pick up addresses see here. If you choose the first option you can already start planning your trip with the 200-page guidebook that’s included. Don’t worry about the pass not arriving on time: if it doesn’t you’ll be refunded the shipping costs, and can still pick it up in New York.
How does the New York Pass work?
The New York Pass comes in the shape of a smart card that fits easily in your wallet. I would advise you to validate the New York Pass by visiting your first attraction early in the morning. This is because the pass is valid for a number of consecutive days. Most of the attractions are open early and it’ll be less crowded so you can avoid long queues. An extra benefit of the pass: at many attractions you can skip the queue. In addition, you don’t pay any extra at the attractions, just the pass is enough!
What attractions and activities should I choose?
You probably won’t have time to visit all of the attractions. But there’s no need to worry about that. Even when you buy a 1-day New York Pass and visit 3 top attractions you will still save at least $58. The pass gives you a wide variety of options. Here’s a small, categorised selection:
Iconic New York
The New York Pass gives you entrance to some of New York’s most iconic attractions. You can’t miss out on seeing the Empire State Building or Top of the Rock and the Statue of Liberty. The pass also has ‘Fast Track’ entry to some of these attractions, which saves valuable time.
Do you love history? Then you can do a lot with the New York Pass: you can visit the American Museum of Natural History, the idyllic Historic Richmond Town, the Museum of Jewish Heritage and the 9/11 Museum, among others.
If you like being outside, visit the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, New York Botanical Garden, the Cloisters Gardens or Wave Hill. If you just want to go out and explore, I recommend making use of the Central Park bike rentals or tours and taking one of the many boat tours and cruises. And don’t forget to enjoy a great view of the city from the Top of the Rock or the Empire State Building!
Arts and Culture
Art fanatics should definitely pay a visit to MoMA, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Guggenheim. And if you want to explore more of the city’s cultural diversity then you can take a variety of tours such as the Bronx Renaissance or the SoHo-Little Italy-Chinatown Walking Tour.
