Chris Lee was an excellent ambassador for our trip. Very knowledgeable and kept us entertained with his corny jokes and knew aĺ the best spots for taking excelent photos. Also really appreciated that he took us to Subway station to get us back to our hotel easily and followed up with phone call later to check we'd made it back safely.

Pass with 3 activities, practical! Be careful for certain activities if you want a specific time slot, it is best to go early in the morning to reserve your slot (example: Top of the rock). Cannot book in advance on the website except for Empire State Building (required)
