No problem with the voucher, except that the poor guy at the office we chose to redeem it at couldn't get his computer to work. Loved that our tickets were good for many things....
best way to learn about manhattan, although we went in December so it was very cold, but if you dress appropriately its fine!...
Great time on the bus and staff were very informative. We paid for 48hour pass but don’t use all the options open to us I.e. museum and another loop ride as we spent too much...
