NY City Pass Reviews

I haven't found any recent review of this using the search function and wondered if anyone might comment on their experience. We will be in NYC on 12/18,19, a Sunday and Monday, so the skip the line might be of value. I'd esp like to hear about the Hop-Onand Off bus service and holiday traffic in Manhattan. We are a party of five.

The pass is rarely a good buy for just 2 days. If you want to do the hoho bus, just buy tickets for that although traffic is terrible and you waste a lot of time in traffic. If you want a tour, at this time of year I suggest considering


which uses the subway and walking.

Any type of vehicular traffic in Manhattan is ALWAYS slow - no matter what season.....plus if spending a lot of money to save waiting on line for 10/12 minutes is your thing go for it.

These passes are just NOT a good deal especially when it comes to museums who have a pay what you wish policy.

Save you money - go ala carte.

Make a list of what you want to do. If any of your items are for pay-what-you-wish museums, such as the Natural History or the Met Museum, you shouldn't use a Pass for those.

I agree a Pass is not good for ashort visit.

Let us know what you want to see.
