What people are saying about Times Square

Overall rating

4.3 / 5

based on 3,489 reviews

We saw a lot of beautiful places that I wouldn’t have known to go to. We were a bit surprised when we were dropped off at the Edge and told we needed to find our own way back. That wasn’t clear in the tour. We were picked up a few streets from Times Square and I specifically booked it because I thought we ended in the same place. They had a concierge desk at the Edge building and they were extremely helpful and called us a cab so it worked out surprisingly well.

The tour guides were hilarious. I recommend this to anyone wanting to see the sights of NYC while having a few good laughs! The support staff were wonderful as well.

The pass was really worth it. Hassle-free access to our selected attractions. There were no additional costs. I would buy the pass again

Definitely visit a viewing platform at night, getting tickets was very easy and quick everywhere

Fantastic! Smooth entrance, friendly staff, totally worthwhile
