What people are saying about Statue of Liberty Pedestal

Good value pass. Cheaper on Get your guide than other websites (and direct). Easy to book in advance. In the winter I would book any view points as late as possible to check the forecast. We had poor views from the Empire state building having booked a few days in advance (forecast changed)

5 attraction pass was ideal as we were only spending 4 days in NY . Being able to book timed reservations helped with the planning Had no problems at any of the attractions . We booked Empire State , Top Of The Rock ,Statue Of Liberty , Natural History Museum & 911 . Good value for money

The city pass was great value for money and gave us a big discount on our visits. Was simple to use and allowed us quick entry into the various tours.

Very knowledgeable guide and the planning of the tour was very good.

Well organised, informative and a must when visiting NYC
