    • Excellent package and highly recommended

      Robert Ballantyne, United Kingdom, 04/Jun/2019
    • The staff at the main center did not inform us that Hop-On, Hop-Off Tour buses only ran until 5 p.m. We were stuck around the World Trade Center waiting and not knowing that buses didn't run past 5 p.m. If we knew this information from the beginning we would have managed our time for sight seeing better and/or not waited around for a bus that was not coming.

      Maria Patrick, United States, 08/Apr/2019
    • We were able to go to all the places we wanted to with no problems. The ferry was well worth it! We had a really great time! You need to pay very close attention to which attractions are being offered and that the info is up-to-date. We read online and called the Isango customer service to make sure that the Empire State building was one of the attractions offered, but when we went to the Empire State Building, they no longer accepted the vouchers. Sure enough, when I looked at the brochure closer, it was no longer an offered attraction. Everything listed on the updated brochure, given to us upon check-in, when we received our tickets was accepted, however. We had a really great time and it was super easy to use the vouchers. We would definitely buy this option again!
