The New York Pass® vs. New York Explorer Pass

new york pass price discount promo code

Travelers who are looking to experience the best of New York will do well by purchasing either The New York Pass® or the New York Explorer Pass. Both are multi-attraction passes from a company called Go City, and they are designed to give you access to the top things to do in NYC at a cheaper price. They only differ in the following: The New York Pass® by Go City is based on the number of days that you want to explore, while the Go City New York Explorer Pass is based on the number of attractions that you want to visit. If you want to do as many tours and sightseeing in, say, 1, 3, 5, or 7 days, then I’d recommend getting The New York Pass®. However, if you only want to visit a couple of attractions, then I’d say getting the New York Explorer Pass is more worth it for you.
