What can you see and do with the Sightseeing Flex Pass?

Buy a Sightseeing Flex Pass for 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10 or 12 attractions. Then you have 60 days to visit the attractions that you choose. Create your own itinerary by choosing your favourites from a list of over 100 attractions and tours! Find the full list here.

For example, choose the Hop on Hop off Bus: a 1-day ticket for the Uptown and Downtown routes counts as one attraction. You can board right away by showing your pass at the first stop of the route.

With the Sightseeing Flex Pass, you can visit the Empire State Building, Top of the Rock, take a sightseeing cruise and go to the American Museum of Natural History, for example. Observation decks Edge and One World Observatory are also in the pass. Other options in the pass include bike tours and bike rentals – there’s even an option with electric bikes and scooters. You can also opt for a lunch or get an eSIM with 10GB of data. In addition, the Sightseeing Pass is the only discount pass with a transfer from one of the New York airports to Manhattan.

9/11 Museum

As the 9/11 Museum is not included in this pass, you can buy a ticket with time slot separately. This will allow you to visit the museum at your preferred time, ensuring entry and preventing your schedule from getting bogged down by long queues at New York's busiest attraction. Buy your 9/11 Museum tickets here.

Discounted Helicopter Flight with Flex Pass

When you purchase your Flex Pass, it is possible to add a helicopter flight over Manhattan for US $229 + heliport fees, making it a very good deal instead of booking your helicopter flight separately. This price is in addition to the price you pay for the Sightseeing Flex Pass.

In the confirmation email, you will find a code for your Flex Pass and a separate code for your helicopter flight. Follow the steps in the mail to secure your helicopter flight. Do this in time to be sure of a spot.

How does the Sightseeing Flex Pass work?

Purchase the New York Sightseeing Flex Pass easily online, before you travel. You’ll receive a voucher with a QR-code, which is your pass. You can show it at the attractions, on your phone, to get in. You can visit each attraction once. I recommend printing the pass as well, so you have a paper copy, just in case. You can also download a digital guide. It contains information on the tours and attractions and tells you how to use the pass at each one.

There’s no need to decide beforehand which attractions to visit, just decide what you want to do when you’re in New York. So, maximum flexibility for a minimum price! A change of plans? A Cancellation Cover is automatically added at checkout, allowing you to cancel your unused pass free of charge for up to 12 months after purchase.

Eric’s Tip: “The Sightseeing Flex Pass gives you the freedom to visit a variety of popular New York attractions at your own pace. Do you prefer to turn up the tempo and visit as many attractions as possible during your stay? Then choose the New York Sightseeing Day Pass instead. You just decide the number of days you want in advance and then can see and do as many things as you want within that time. An extra benefit is that with the Day Pass, you can take the ferry to the Statue of Liberty, which is not included in the Flex Pass.”

Is the New York Sightseeing Flex Pass worth it?
