Tips and recommendations:

We are going to try to answer all the questions that you usually ask through chat and email about New York tourist cards and our recommendation for each of them.

I suggest you to buy the NYC Sightseeing Pass with a certain number of tickets, depending on the places you want to visit (called Sightseeing FLEX Pass), the New York City Explorer Pass or New York CityPASS, which include the main tourist attractions you are going to visit and you have a minimum of 9 days to visit them calmly from the first use you make.

In this case, I suggest you to buy the NYC Sightseeing Pass with a certain number of admissions (called Sightseeing FLEX Pass), the New York CityPASS or the New York City Explorer Pass, you have a minimum of 9 days to use the tickets you have purchased since you first use of your tourist card.

Then I suggest you to buy the New York Pass or the NYC Sightseeing Pass , they will allow you to enter in almost all the places during the number of days that you select for the tourist card. Before buying one of these cards I recommend you to plan well the days that you are going to spend in Manhattan and the places that interest you to visit to choose one or another.

In this case you will have to choose between the NYC Sightseeing Pass , which includes the use of all tourist bus routes for 3 days (counts as a ticket if you buy the Flex Pass, and is included in the rest of the cards of more than 3 days) or the New York Pass, that includes a day of tourist bus with Big Bus Tours.

Then it’s clear to you, only the NYC Sightseeing Pass includes access to the One World Observatory and 100+ other New York tourist attractions.
